SUO69- Anything Sizziz! A Fishy Card for Dad :-)
I have exciting news- I am now a Design Team member at SU-Only Challenges!! I love the diversity of the Design Team and am so honored to be a part of this creative group:-)
At SU-Only Challenges, we have a challenge every two weeks featuring Stampin’ Up! Only products- I sure hope you can come play along!
The SUO69 AnythingSizzix Challenge is perfect for a gal like me that loves her Big Shot™ - I could not resist using Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders and Framelit™ Dies.
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Pool Party with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of River Rock using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Lightly sponge Soft Suede Classic Ink on both embossed images and mount both onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock.
Also with the Big Shot™, cut the Apothecary Accents Framelit™ label from Soft Suede cardstock and emboss with the WoodgrainTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Add to the card front along the edges of the Pool Party and Woodgrain layer, punch holes with the 1/16” Handheld Punch and add the Antique Brads.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut an oval from River Rock cardstock and another oval from Soft Suede (for layering- both pieces can be cut at the same time).
Using Soft Suede Classic Ink, stamp the coral image from By The Tide onto the River Rock oval along with the script image and the fish. Stamp the French Foliage splatter with Pool Party Classic Ink and sponge the edge of the oval using Soft Suede Classic Ink.
Gently distress the edge of the Oval with the Distressing Tool, layer onto the Soft Suede oval (cut the Soft Suede oval in half and mount behind the River Rock oval). Lightly spritz using Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% rubbing alcohol) and add the White Gel Pen highlights. Stamp the French Foliage splatter with Pool Party Classic Ink.
Also using Soft Suede Classic Ink, stamp the Nantucket image from By The Tide and the starfish and sand dollar images from By The Seashore onto River Rock Cardstock. Use the ¾” Circle Punch to punch out the Nantucket image and mount onto Soft Suede cardstock (two additional ¾” circles punched and layered behind the Nantucket image). Carefully cut out the starfish and sand dollar images, sponge Soft Suede Classic Ink around the edges and highlight all of the images a bit with the White Gel Pen.
Adhere the oval focal image to the center of the card and add the Nantucket, starfish and sand dollar images using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Create the ropes using White Baker’s Twine and sponge Soft Suede over the “rope”. Add to the card, looping over the Antique Brads.
Stamp the sentiment onto Pool Party cardstock and add with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
