Lighthouse Sympathy- A Color and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

Here is another card that I created this week using the CC485 Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge along with a version of the FMS143 Freshly Made Sketch.

Again, if you have not visited either of the sites above, both sites have excellent Design Teams as well as other samples- so much inspiration!!

To create this card:

Use the 1 3/8” Circle Punch to punch out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and mask the area on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  Use a Sponge Dauber with Hello Honey Classic Ink to ink within the circle to create the sun.

Ink the lighthouse stamp using Night of Navy Classic ink and stamp over the sun image. Darken the image using a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker.

Create the rays using a straight edge of a piece of scrap paper and a Sponge Dauber with Hello Honey Classic Ink.   Add highlights using the Chalk Marker to the sun and the rays.

Round the corners using the Envelope Board, also rounding corners of a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. Trim and mount the Night of Navy cardstock layer behind the focal image.


Use the Big Shot™ along with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Hello Honey cardstock and color the stripes using the Stampin’ Write Night of Navy marker and the Chalk Marker.  Round the corners of the striped cardstock using the Envelope Punch Board and mount onto the embossed background panel.

Create the banner using the Banner Punch and mount onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, creating banner points with the Banner Punch as well. 

Adhere a piece of Night of Navy Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Night of Navy cardstock.

Add the strands of  1 1/4“ Burlap Ribbon to the card front  and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the striped DSP panel and the Hello Honey banner along with the Night of Navy button to the front of the focal image.

Stamp the sentiment using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner using the Hexagon Punch.  Adhere the sentiment banner to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch. 

Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
