PTI MIM #197: Homemade Foam Stickers

OMG, it was such an exciting day in the Seattle area that I almost didn't get a card made for Laurie's challenge for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday. (It's been a busy week.) She showed us how to make our own homemade stickers from foam. That's just what I did on this card for dear friends of ours who invited us to their home to watch last week's Seattle Seahawks beat the Carolina Panthers and today's overtime "come-from-behind" win against the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship. Now we have Super Bowl XLIX fever in the Pacific Northwest…anxiously waiting for February 1! If you don't like football I know you could care less, but it was very exciting to say the least.

Using Kraft ink and the football in Have A Ball, I stamped some full strength and some stamped off to get a lighter color. Inked the edges of the white card base also using Kraft ink. Two strips of colored paper under the striped paper show off my green foam stickers die cut using Block Alphabet. Three green sequins added a nice finishing touch (I think). 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Kraft and SU Not Quite Navy (I think)
Ink: Kraft
Stamps: Have A Ball
Dies: Block Alphabet
Other: SU Pattern Pack (solid & striped blue), Green fun foam and sequins (Joann's)

What a great card Kathy! Seahawks colors, no doubt inspired by that win that none of us will soon forget! #GoHawks!
