SUO115 Happy Valentine's Day
It’s time for the new SUO115 “Valentine Wishes” Challenge and I decided to incorporate the JAI247 "Just Add Love" (Tag or Tag and Sketch) along with the SC96 Inspiration "Love" Challenge :-)
I hope you will find the time to check the rest of the Design Team at all of the challenge sites and come join in on the fun!
Create the tag using a 1 ⅞” wide piece of Whisper White cardstock and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
Stamp the border image (from Choose Happiness) at the bottom of the tag using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink , the woodgrain image using Smoky Slate Classic Ink above the border and add splatter using the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.
Punch a 2” wide piece of Basic Black cardstock ( ¼" longer than the stamped tag) and mount behind the tag.
Stamp two of the flower images along with the bird from Choose Happiness, the chevron heart from Hearts A Flutter and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the flowers, heart and the bottom of the tag using the Light and Medium Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Melon Mambo Collection markers.
“Fussy-cut” the flowers, bird and heart and distress the edge of the heart with the Distressing Tool. Add highlights to the flower centers using the White Gel Pen.
Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and repeatedly stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the splatter panel , trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Melon Mambo card base.
Adhere the flower (behind the tag) along with the tag to the card front. Add the heart directly to the tag.
Add the sentiment with the overlapping flower and the bird to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the Basic Black bow using the new Bow Builder Punch and add the Whisper White button to the center (use a small silver of Basic Black cardstock to mimic thread in the button).
Mount the bow to the top of the tag to finish off the card.
