Arty Divas DT Project 11 Feb

Hi Lovelies!

Today is Challenge 15 at Arty Divas.  This is a FORTNIGHTLY "anything goes" (any type of project and any theme) challenge with a design team who makes projects showcasing the sponsor who often offers PRIZES!

This week's sponsor is The Project Bin
Online Shop - https://www.theprojectbin.com/

Much mirth and hilarity ensured when the stamp set from the sponsor arrived.  My instant favourite was the combination I used in my project today.  The first thing that came to mind was this meme which strikes a chord with me.

I remembered I had a (now discontinued) die set from Taylored Expressions which features this retro phone and I could picture it cute black to reflect the style of the phone (a Bakelite phone! 😍)

So the only proper choice for paper was something like October Afternoon or Cosmo Cricket which has that 1940s-50s vibe.  The floral doilies from the 8x8 Thrift Shop paper pad was the winning pattern! 

The great thing about polymer stamps is that longer sentiments or images can be bent slightly onto your block to give a curve where there isn't one like I did for the "one phone call" part of the sentiment and the "you are my" nestled in beautifully between the ascenders!

When it comes to putting together a pieced die cut image, Glue Dots save a whole lot of time and mess.   I put all the sizes to work holding the bits of phone together and the Micro Dots to attach the red sequins.

You Are My One Phone Call Card

Uncharacteristically simple for me, wouldn't you say? 😂

Lastly, I had the TallCraftyDude stamp some of the more wacky combinations!  And no we DO NOT celebrate birthdays, but it just made for funny phrases, especially using the dog as the butt of all the jokes.  Being a cat fam, it's always so! 🤷

The beast has been unleashed! 🙈

Love, and sassy stamping!
