Poppystamps Challenge: Word Art
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!

We're so glad you could join us today! Have you created a card for this month's challenge here on our Poppystamps blog? The theme is Word Art, and I created a bright and cheerful card featuring some Word Art with the Freestyle Hugs. Take a look!


I started with one of my favorite Embossing Folders EVER, 3D Geometric Crystals from Open Studio. It creates great artsy textured squares that make any background fresh and fun. I did the background, card base, and border in a bright, crisp, white.


I used Freestyle Hugs and cut the Hugs script in bright white, and the background outline in as many colors as I could find from my scraps box that had a colorful and bright tone. This card uses 16 colors arranged in a rainbow hue from bright pink to dark purple. Adhere the word "hugs" on to the top piece, then work from top to bottom lining up the pieces down and to the left of your top pink piece.


This card feels like it's in motion, with the hugs and the open-armed kitty from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit jumping out. I added a little white spot on the kitty's nose so he looked like my own cat, Fuzzy Henderson, with an asymmetrical streak down his nose. Adorable! I added a few light pink hearts from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit, and a few clear Fairy Drops.


Now it's YOUR turn! We'd love to see what you'll create, and how you will be inspired, using at least one Poppystamps product. One lucky winner, chosen at random, will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorite items from the Poppystamps store!

It's easy to play along. Create a card or project inspired by this month's theme, WORD ART, using at least one Poppystamps image or die. Link it up here on our Poppystamps blog. The winning design will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery. In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Poppystamps image. We ask that you link a maximum of  3 entries to each challenge. You are welcome to link your design to other challenges. Grab our badge to post on your blog post or sidebar! You have until 12 AM US EST on August 29th to participate. The winner will be announced on September 1. 


Show us your WORD ART and get crafting!

Thanks so much for joining us today!










Hi Michele, A gorgeous card, I'm loving the die-cuts used and the rainbow colours of the 'hugs' sentiment is so effective.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
