CC490 Sunset Sympathy

Hi Again Stampers! 

I am so honored to have been invited to be a Guest Designer for the Splitcoaststampers’ Color Challenge for the month of August :-)

I had so much fun with this week's CC490 Colors that I ended up creating two different cards.   The color combination of Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and the fact that you can have a flower on the card (but it cannot be the focal image nor can the sentiment be the focal image :-))- these stipulations truly made it a "challenge" for me! 

I hope you will visit the gallery and create a card of your own with this week’s colors!

To create the first card (see next post for the 2nd 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 Whisper White cardstock (with the circle cut out).

Use a Sponge Dauber with Daffodil Delight Classic Ink to color in the center of the masked circle, remove the mask and re-mask the “sun” using just the circle portion of the mask.

Create a torn mask for the horizon line (to mimic the mountains).   Keep the circle mask over the sun area and using a Sponge Dauber, apply Coastal Cabana Classic Ink followed by Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink.

 Remove the mask for the mountains and reverse the mask to mask the sponged sky area.

Use a Sponge Dauber with Wild Wasabi Classic Ink to create the mountain /grassy area.

Re-mask to stamp the trees on the horizon (using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink) and a few details using a Sakura .005 Micron Pen.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  Add the squares of Cherry Cobbler cardstock (allowing the corners to show- these pieces were from my scraps).

Mount a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper (Park Lane DSP) to a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  Add the Coastal Cabana cardstock layer at the bottom with a strip of Basic Black cardstock to cover the seam.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Our Daily Bread Designs Edgelit™ to create the lacy border out of Whisper White cardstock.  Mount below the Basic Black band, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  

Adhere the entire panel to the Coastal Cabana card base and add the sentiment along with the Cherry Cobbler button to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Lovely As A Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Printer Ink- Black (for sentiment)

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler , Basic Black, Parl Lane DSP
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Hexagon Punch (for the banner points), scrap paper for masking, Big Shot™, Decorative Border Strip (ODBD)

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a fabulous evening!!
