Popcorn Fun Indeed!
This is my final card for the Clear and Simple Stamps dt audition, and it's definitely my favorite out of everything I submitted! In fact, it was this set that really got me fired up about the Clear and Simple Stamps line and led me to their website. It's called "Bucket-o-Popcorn Fun" and it's absolutely YUMMY! You can see it for yourself right here. And for even more fun, there's a companion set to go with it, called "Popcorn Extras" (see it here. And actually, the "Pop on By" phrase comes from that set). I had such fun watercoloring all that popcorn... made me wanna head for the movie theater for the real thing! MY version looks like it was seasoned with kosher salt (or sea salt...whatever the big stuff is called), but instead of heading to the kitchen, I turned to my Rubbermaid tub of full of glitters and found a tube of very coarse, opaque white stuff that I believe came from the kids aisle at Michael's! Whatever works, right?! Here's an up-close shot of the "salt":

Here are the other details on this card (at least the ones I can remember!):

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink "Kraft"; watercolor paper
DP: Basic Grey "Wassail"
Inks: Staz-On "Timber Brown"; Ranger "Antique Linen" Distress
Color Medium: SU watercolor crayons
Punches: McGill scallop corner rounder; Fiskars corner scissors (used on the watercolor paper)
Accessories/Embellishments: Pebbles, Inc. "Chocolate Brown" Candy Dots; course white glitter; sewing machine/brown thread; foam adhesive

I can't WAIT to begin posting some sneak peaks for a CSS July release...stay tuned. And thanks for stopping in today!

What a cute and creative card - congrats on the design team! How fun that will be :0) I just helped host a baby shower and we were going to go with a popcorn theme - "She's ready to pop!" HaHa!!
