Patchwork Birthday- Two Challengers in One!

Hi Stampers!  

Happy Friday everyone!!  I wanted to create a card using the fabulous PPA161 Pals Paper Arts Sketch along with the bright "summery" colors in this week’s CQC194 ColourQ Challenge.   If you have the time and have not already done so, check both sites out for wonderful inspiration!!

I finally had a chance to sew on my card!! :-)  FYI- Recently I purchased a small inexpensive sewing machine for sewing just on cards (since I did not want to use my heavier machine) and I was able to use it for the first time on this card  :-))

To create this card:

Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the tractor image onto Whisper White cardstock.  Use the AquaPainter™ to pick up ink from Calypso Coral for the tractor and Gumball Green for the grass area. 

Highlight the tractor with the retired Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write marker, distress the edges using the Distressing Tool and a Sponge Dauber with Sahara Sand Classic Ink. 
Stamp the script stamp from Notable Notions using Sahara Sand Classic Ink and stamp into the background area around the tractor.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool (retired) with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit more detail.

Sew the distressed focal image onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and also distress the edges with the Distressing Tool, Sponge Dauber as noted above. 

Ink the sentiment with Early Espresso Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out using the Large Oval Punch and add a bit of Sahara Sand Classic Ink with the Sponge Dauber and add a bit of distressing with the Color Spritzer Tool (retired) with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Gumball Green and Tempting Turquoise Designer Series Paper (DSP) .

Use the sewing machine to sew the layers onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and once sewn, distress the edges slightly (be careful since the paper can tear easily).

Adhere this sewn layer to a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and mount onto the Whisper White card base (use the Sponge Dauber with Sahara Sand to tone down the white edges of the card base).

Mount the tractor image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, add the sentiment with the retired Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware along with the corner detail created from Calypso Coral cardstock scrap with additional Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Harvest Blessings, Wetlands  

Ink: Early Espresso, Calypso Coral, Gumball Green, Stampin’ Write Markers- Early Espresso, retired Poppy Parade
