Sunday Stamping With Beverly Sizemore: Exercising Ethel

"I’m a huge Steven Martin fan," says Beverly Sizemore. "I’ve been enjoying his comedy and movies for many years."

"My oldest daughter surprised me with tickets to go see him perform in Memphis last May at the Ophelius Theater. Imagine how excited I was when I found out we had THIRD row tickets for the concert!! I got some great photos and that night will always be a fun, fun, fun memory," she shares.

Beverly's wonderful sense of humor is reflected in her stamping projects, such as this one:

To create her hilarious card, she started with 11140MC Ageless Worldly Women Clear Set (drawn by artist Nancye Williams):

The main image is Exercising Ethel (0517J in wood mounted), which she colored using markers. Then she prepared black die-cut chipboard tags by applying Sparkle Mod Podge to their surfaces:

Beverly mentioned that she likes to use bright, bold color combinations, and that's clearly the case here! Check out the delightful, eye-popping palette she chose for Ethel:

Everything was layered onto a glitter pink cardstock base and tied with a bow to finish things off:

How fun is that? It's "no sweat" to create, when you use the following supplies:

Ink Pad: Colorbox Archival Dye in Wicked Black - Clearsnap

Paper: White, Glitsy Glitter Stack - Diecuts With A View, Black Chipboard - Grafix

Accessories:  Markers - Copic, Sparkle Mod Podge - Plaid, #658526 Die - Sizzix, Ribbon - Michael’s, Flower - Prima, Mini Brad - The Paper Studio
