PP156 Heaven Knows You Are Special

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card using The Paper Players PP156 Sketch and decided to incorporate a few images that I had already watercolored, fussy cut and had on hand. 

If you have a chance, check out the Design Team samples as well as the other entries- a great job by all!

To create this card:

Stamp the images from By The Tide using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully watercolor using the AquaPainter™ with Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink from the ink pad.

Ink the label stamp from Everything Eleanor using Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White.  Ink the script stamp from By The Tide using Early Espresso Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp over the label image.  Carefully cut this image out by hand and cut in half vertically.

Stamp the label from Notable Notions twice using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully cut by hand.  Cut the bottom off one of the images and layer to create a longer tag.

Stamp the coral image using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto the elongated tag and watercolor Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink over the coral.  Use the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit of distressing and the Satin Ribbon to cover up the seam in the tag.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto the Early Espresso cardstock.

Add all of the elements per the sketch, embellish with Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  By The Tide, Everything Eleanor, Blessings from Heaven, Notable Notions  

Ink: Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe

Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Chalk Talk Framelits™, AquaPainter™, Color Spritzer Tool, Sponge Dauber, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a great Wednesday!!
