SUO90 Vintage Thank You- Seven Punches for Punch Parade :-)
It’s that time again, a new SU-Only Challenge!! The SUO90 Challenge is Punch Parade and normally I would have opted for a traditional punch art card but decided to be a bit more deceptive with my punches :-)
Can you guess that I have incorporated seven punches in this card – do you see them all? Yes, there are a total of seven different punches along with an embossing folder used for this vintage card.
To create this card:
To create this card:
Use the Postage Stamp Punch and punch out nine postage stamp pieces from Basic Black cardstock- adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use the 1” Square Punch to punch out nine 1” squares from a piece of the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper (DSP) and adhere to the postage stamp pieces created in the above step.
Distress the pieces using the AquaPainter™ to apply diluted retired Tea Stain Vintage Ink to “antique” the DSP and perimeter of the Whisper White cardstock. Once dry, emboss the entire panel using the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Stamp the tea party image using Basic Black Classic Ink and color with the Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride and Pistachio Pudding Stampin’ Write Markers. Add a bit of distressing using the AquaPainter™ to apply diluted retired Tea Stain Vintage Ink and cut out the image using the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collections Framelits™.
Cut another oval from Basic Black cardstock using the same size oval framelit, cut the Basic Black oval in half (horizontally) and layer behind the tea party image.
Use the new Scalloped Tag Punch to create a tag from Basic Black cardstock and add the layered oval focal image onto the bottom of the tag.
Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Basic Black onto Whisper White cardstock, distress with the Tea Stain Vintage Ink and Gorgeous Grunge splatter image using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. Cut the banner using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto a layer of Basic Black cardstock (trimming the Basic Black to create a frame for the banner sentiment).
Mount the banner sentiment above the tea cup (covering up the original sentiment on the focal image stamp) and set aside to create the rolled flowers.
To create the rolled flowers:
The larger roses were created with the 2 3/8” Scallop Circle-punch two from Raspberry Ripple and one from Blushing Bride cardstock. Starting on the outside, cut a wavy spiral towards the center, crimp twice with the retired Crimping Tool and start to roll up from the outside edge toward the center. Again, hold in place using the Hot Glue Gun or Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive. If needed, here is a basic written tutorial at Splitcoaststampers for the rolled roses.
Take the same steps as above for the smallest roses (three from Blushing Bride cardstock and one from Raspberry Ripple cardstock)- use the 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the roses from the cardstock and use the same instructions above for completing the roses. Distress the roses a bit with the AquaPainter™ to apply diluted retired Tea Stain Vintage Ink to the petals.
Use a Sponge Dauber with this ink as well to “distress/antique” the leaves as well. Use the Bird Builder Punch to punch out the leaves from Pistachio Pudding cardstock.
Add the Tea Lace Paper Doily to the card front (sponge a bit of the Tea Stain Vintage Ink onto the doily, use the retired Crimper Tool to crimp a scrap piece of Basic Black and adhere this layer over the cut edge of the doily.
Add the piece of Tea Lace Paper Doily to the top of the tag and the dots along the edge using the Chalk Marker. Mount the focal tag image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and use Mini Glue Dots, or I have been using my Hot Glue Gun- it has been resurrected!, to add the leaves first, then the roses to around the edge and top of the tag.
Add the strand of pearls to the crimped Basic Black Layer to finish off the card.
So there you have it, seven punches, one card - new Scalloped Tag, 2 3/8” Scallop Circle, 1 ¾” Scallop Circle, Bird Builder, Postage Stamp, 1” Square and Hexagon.
