The Off-Season

The Off-Season


Hello again! For my post this time, I decided to mix weird and funny (again). While browsing through the Viva Las Vegastamps! online store, I found this sentiment that says “In the off-season, the sugarplums dance in seedy nightclubs.” I knew right away that I could make a funny card with this one, so I bought it!

While browsing in their store one day I found this stamp of the lady and also noticed the cool set of Bat Wings as well. So I stamped all the stamps on white cardstock, and then colored them with Copic markers. For the sentiment, I cut it out with two Spellbinders shapes and then inked with chalk ink. I wanted to make lots of poles to put across the front of the card, but forgot to order the candy cane stamp to make them with. So instead, I found a cool piece of patterned paper that says “Ho Ho Ho” all over it. I thought it would work well in this situation! I wanted to highlight some areas, so I added Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder to the lips, flower, hoop earrings, and parts of the wings. Then I cut out all of my images, touched up the white edges and adhered them to my card with pop dots to make it look three dimensional and more interesting.

Please visit to check out the galleries and forum for more cool ideas. Also, be sure to visit the Viva Las Vegastamps! blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with the cool stamps!

    OK, that girl is just creepy! My initial thought was "eeewww, gross picture!" then I read the sentiment and literally laughed out loud! That's too flippin' HA-larious and now I think the card is just perfect! Love it! You are so flippin' creative!

    Awesome card Joe! This card could be sent to a "True Blood" fan and they would love it!
