Week 193 - PINK

It’s time again for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  Time to bring out the pink…or not.  Maybe this word makes you think of something other than pink!  I had thoughts of sunbathing because I am fair skinned and tend to burn, but I went with a different idea entirely.

Bubble gum.  The pink stuff.  The kind my DH really does not like, but I do!  I remember as kids having bubble gum blowing contests (Hubba Bubba, anyone?!)…in the car…and my dad would get so mad if he found little pieces of gum stuck to the interior days later!  Oh, the memories!

2016 Apr12 PINK

Stamps:  Serendipity: Retro Starburst, Stamps of Life (sentiment): bubblegum4me

I stamped the large circle from Serendipity’s Retro Starburst stamp set in StampinUp’s Crisp Canteloupe ink and then applied a layer of sparkle using a Wink of Stella brush marker.  I then applied a thin line of 2-Way Glue and sprinkled some American Crafts POP! Microbeads on top of it. Then sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink below the bubble.  The main panel was popped up with foam dots to add a little dimension to the abundant white space.

You can find more PINK inspiration from this week’s guest designer, Shanna, as well as the talented design team!  Be sure and leave them a little hello!

    Oh, that’s clever!! I remember those days well! Hated that the hubba bubba used to lose its flavour so soon! Those were the days!!

    Yes I remember Hubba Bubba vividly, my favourite was grape! Fantastic play on pink!

    Melissa, this rocks!!! I love gorgeous sparkle on the bubble and the perfect sentiment. My parents would never let us have gum so I of course would try to sneak it as often as possible. 😉
