Little Sunshine Sneak Peek & Itty Bitty Sand Architech

I have 2 big reasons for sharing joy with all. 1st Shannon took and PASSED her Para-Pro test on Monday so it is full time teaching for her. WHOO HOO!!!! 2nd I recently answered a call from Emily who host the weekly color challenges on SCS to help her out this summer as she prepares for her dh to go away in service to our country. I was more than happy to send her a pm that I would be glad to help out. She selected me for this week and so this is for today's Splitcoast Stampers COLOR CHALLENGE - Pacific Tango Summer . So I am just too excited to bring this to you as a guest host for Emily.
This month we say goodbye to the Stampin' Up In Colors and so farewell to some of my favorite colors: Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. I wanted to include both of these in my challenge as I just do not feel like I have shown them enough love. I included Summer sun . I used last weeks CLEAR AND SIMPLY CHALLENGE - Sketch for my layout. Last week the DT got their new images that will be released Thursday to play with from TREEHOUSE STAMPS. This one is called Little Sunshine and was just perfect for the color challenge I had in mind. I stamped my image in black then colored with copics. The clouds were then covered with stickles. The sentiment was then stamped with tangerine tango. I hope you play along this week and have fun with these gorgeous colors for 1 last week.
Stamps: Little Sunshine
Ink: Black brilliance
Paper: White, Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Stickles, copics..

I had to make another one when I got up this morning. I just about to stamp every morning. I do my best work then. I just love this image.
This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pacific Tango Summer, Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #20 - Paper Piecing where I pieced his swim truck from a piece of scrap for Sunday's HIGH HOPES #36 CHALLENGE - Scraps. My layout is from Monday's MOJO # 92 -Sketch. I must admit that last week when Shannon made a card using this image I gave her a hard time because she had a darling stamp that I did not have nor did I have any stamped images of it (insert green face) then she points out that it is my stamp that she got some images from (insert shame face here). Well I just had to use it today. I stamped my image is black then colored with copics and paper pieced the trunks. The kraft layer was punched with my new EK Success border punch and it is sad most of it is covered up where you can not see it. Then I stamped one of the itty bitty background images in brown for a sandy look. I really love how this turned out so much I am ready to go back to the beach with the grands.

Neva, congrats on posting a challenge for SCS! What an honor! I love those colors myself! I'm excited to see what the new In Colors will be.

Your card is wonderful. In fact, I wish I was the one on that beach! It is SO hot here. With the heat index, around 110. Summer arrived with a BANG!
