Nautical Birthday- A Sketch, A Theme and A Color Challenge :-)
I found some time to create today and wanted to play with a new stamp set, Traveler and decided to create a collage style Nautical card for The Card Concept #12 Challenge along with the PPA207 Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge, the STS22 Sketch from Seize the Sketch Challenge and since it is a birthday card, the Seize The Birthday Challenge.
All of the sites above have such wonderful samples and inspiration- I hope you have a chance to check them out!
To create this card:
Use Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp the ship and globe images from Traveler as well as the World Map image onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Using the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker, add a bit of color to the ship and use the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows to all of the images.
Use the retired Color Spritzer Tool with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit of distressing and stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Sahara Sand Classic Ink.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Sahara Sand Classic Ink to tone down the Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp the globe, journal and suitcase images using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Night of Navy cardstock. Trim and mount onto Real Red cardstock, trim and mount onto Whisper White cardstock and again onto the Real Red card base.
Trim the map panel for the horizontal piece of the sketch and mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock and mount onto the card front.
Add the Real Red strip of cardstock along with two Whisper White pieces (I used scraps for this- love those scraps :-)).
Use the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™ to cut out the globe image and the Square Collection Framelits™ for the ship. Cut another Window Frame from Real Red cardstock to mount behind the globe image and mount the ship onto a piece of Real Red cardstock, trim to create the frame. Mount both images onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the photo corners using the 1” Square Punch from Real Red cardstock- add to the corners of the images.
Stamp the sentiment using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the Word Window Punch and add the banner points using the Banner Punch.
Mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock (punched from the Word Window Punch with banner points created from the Banner Punch) and another piece of Night of Navy cardstock- layer behind the sentiment. Distress with the Sponge Dauber and splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the Night of Navy Candy Dots to finish off the card.
