True North for the PPA192 Pals Paper Arts Sketch

Hi Stampers!

Yesterday I had the pleasure to spend time crafting with two of my best friends and after they left, I just had to create a card and finish up one I had started earlier this week :-)

This card was created for The Pals Paper Arts PPA192 Sketch Challenge –I decided to use this sketch along with a few new items to create a masculine card for my husband (who is my "True North" here on earth :-)) 

If you have not had a chance to check out The Pals Paper Arts site yet, I hope you will soon- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the True North stamp from Hello Sailor using Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp a few times onto the High Tide Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Layer onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock and use a Sponge Dauber with Smoky Slate Classic Ink to add ink along the edges.

Create the vertical piece of the sketch with another piece of the High Tide DSP- emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, sponge a bit of Smoky Slate Classic Ink, mount onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock and add to the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the True North and whale images using Pacific Point Classic Ink and add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Classic Write Marker.   Create masks for both images using scrap cardstock or sticky notes, mask the images and repeatedly stamp the ledger from The Open Sea using Smoky Slate Classic Ink (angling in different directions).    Add a few splatters with Smoky Slate ink using the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.

Trim the whale panel and sponge a bit of Smoky Slate Classic Ink around the edges.  Mount onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock and again onto Smoky Slate cardstock- sponge Smoky Slate Classic Ink around the edges of these layers as well.

Create the rope from knotted Hemp Twine (retired) and add to the panel (again, I used Hot Glue - where has my Hot Glue Gun been all of these years- lol! )

Create the banner flags using the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Banner Blast stamp set with retired Hemp Twine.  Stamp a few of the banners using Pacific Point and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, punch out using the Banner Punch (also from the SAB catalog) and lightly sponge with Smoky Slate.   Tie knots in the ends of the retired Hemp Twine and add the banners (I used Hot Glue to adhere to the twine), adhere to the panel and  mount the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Hello Sailor, Gorgeous Grunge, Banner Blast (2014 SAB), The Open Sea

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pacific Point; Stampin’ Write Markers- Sahara Sand

Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, High Tide DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ 
Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber, Banner Punch, retired Hemp Twine
