HYCCT1411 Friendship is A Journey
Here is another card that I created for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge (HYCCT) atSplitcoaststampers this past week.
This card was created for the HYCCT1411 philsmom aka Fran’s “Chicks Stick Together” Challenge - (see the gallery here and the details here) along with the Splitcoaststampers SC450 Sketch (I love this versatile sketch).
To create this card:
Ink the main stamp from Friendship’s Journey using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using the AquaPainter™ with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils.
Add distressing using a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and also stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges of the panel.
Sew the stamped panel onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and distress the edges of the Elegant Eggplant layer with the Distressing Tool.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the card base layer of Elegant Eggplant and a piece of retired Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper (DSP). Use the sewing machine to adhere the layers together and add the 1 ½” Satin Ribbon.
Mount the sewn background layer onto the Whisper White card base and add “antiquing” using a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink along the edges
Distress the So Saffron DSP panel from the retired Tea Party DSP and sew onto a panel of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Distress the Elegant Eggplant layer as well and sponge Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink over the edges and paper to add a bit of “antiquing”.
Adhere the So Saffron panel to the card front and add the stamped focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch and add distressing using a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink as well as the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.
Add the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and mount the retired Elegant Eggplant button to finish off the card.

Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, retired DSP- Domestic Goddess and Tea Party
