Our Craft Lounge Sneak Peeks Day #1

GoForItajh copy

Welcome to day #1 of Our Craft Lounge sneak peeks.  So without further ado, here is the set I am sneaking to you today: Football All-Star.

I was so excited to see this set as my son is a huge football fan and is in his second year of playing Flag Football. I just know I will be getting tons of use out of this set.

I made a sample card for the Sketch Challenge 294 over at SCS using this set. I had to go with OHIO Buckeye colors of course! I didn’t have the right shade of red in cardstock so I distressed white cardstock with fired brick distress ink to make “red” cardstock.  Stamped the “word block” on the gray with fired brick distress ink multiple times to make my own background paper. Colored the football player with copics and stamped “Go*For*It” in fired brick distress ink. Stamped the football on shrinky dink paper and made my own charm attached to the ribbon with a wire and “brads” that I placed on the side.

I had to make a scrapbook page using pictures from his first year of Flag Football games. I used 5 images from the set for my page and SU alphabets for my title. Prismacolor pencils were used on the football player images and the little football at the top was attached with a glue dot. The sentiment “Touchdown” was also colored with a prismacolor pencil.
