Artisan Wednesday Wow - Happy Undefined

 Welcome back to Artisan Wednesday WOW! You just came from Cathy Caines and next is Connie Collins, but before you go check out my newest happy thing to do!
When Stampin' UP announced at Convention about this new fun creative outlet called Undefined, I was scared and excited all in one!  Then it came in our first Artisan Design Team box, I got really scared! What to do? Would I do it right? Could I make it look like I want it to? I am sure many of you are thinking the same thing about this product. I have seen countless samples out there and oh my, they are awesome! But still doubted MY ability.
 
For my last Artisan project this month, I just got it out and wanted to start with something simple. I have always doodled smiley faces so it started there. The carving is a little tricky at first so start slow and carve a little at a time until you get the flow of it. The idea is that it is suppose to be rough and look handmade not perfect like the stamps we buy.
I love my little happy face which my daughter pointed out that it looks similar to the smiling school of fish in Finding Nemo movie.  I had to laugh!  I used it to create a pattern background on my card. It works with the stamp from Yippee Skippee. (131344 clear, 131341 wood) The color combo is Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Coastal Cabana. Bright and fun!
Once you get your first stamp created, you WILL want to make more! So give it a try!  
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you today!
