Guest Designer- Sunny Challenge 33/12
I have been invited to be a Guest Designer for this week’s SC33/12 Challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations! If you have the time, stop by their blog and check out the inspiration from the Design Team as well as the other Guest Designers (and while you’re at it, why not join us for this challenge)?
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock with Versamark™ ink and apply Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired). Heat with the Heat Tool, let the image cool and color with Stampin’ Write Markers in Tangerine Tango and Always Artichoke.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Designer Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and emboss over the image. Tear around the outside, distressing with your finger and sponge Soft Suede to gently “antique” the image.
Emboss a piece of the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Sahara Sand DSP with the Herringbone Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Lightly sand both layers with the Sanding Block and lightly sponge Soft Suede ink over the layers to bring out the texture.
Distress the edges of the Mocha Morning layer and mount onto Early Espresso cardstock.
Mount the Sahara Sand layer onto Early Espresso, distress the edges of the Early Espresso with the Distressing Tool, add Sticky Strip along the bottom edge and attach the Victoria Lace Trim (ruffling as you attach it to the Sticky Strip).
Layer onto the Mocha Morning panel, add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired) and sentiment. Apply 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds to the wings of the bee, add a few pearls and the card is finished!
