Play Ball

Baseball is a favorite past-time in the summer, and I have been to Busch Stadium a few times to watch the Cardinals in action. This was created for a challenge at Split Coast Stampers depicting Summer in the City. I made sure that the stars I added had stitching lines to meet the D and D Challenge of stitching.

I used a digital image from Power Poppy called Baseball Vignette Digital. I resized the image and printed it on our laser printer on Gina K Designs Layering Weight cardstock. When the toner was dry, I was able to color the image with alcohol markers. I fussy cut the image out and placed it on my cardbase with foam squares. I added stars all around with The Stamps of Life Stitched Stars dies; this is the smallest star in the set. Before cutting, I applied Sizzix adhesive sheets to the back side of the cardstock, this way the stars became a sticker.

Thanks for a fun contest!

  1. What a fun summertime card. Your coloring on the baseball image is great. Now if it only had the Cardinal logo on the bats.

    1. Yes, it needs the logo. Marci didn’t draw that and she is from St. Louis! I haven’t been to a game in almost 30 years, but still remember sitting in the stadium. Thanks!

  2. Love this card. Your design and coloring is perfect. Boy do we miss baseball, too, and our favorite team the Phillies.

    1. Gotta love your hometown team. I grew up close to St. Louis so that is the team to root for. Thanks!

    1. I bet you are missing your watching. I am sure the players are missing the playing. I did see Koreans playing baseball for the first time on the TV in physical therapy. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Wonderful image, beautifully colored. You have really done this Power Poppy stamp justice. Great take on the Mood Board, thanks so much for playing along with us over at the Double D Challenge. Hope we see you back again soon!!
