JUN15VSNI Happy Together with Betsy the Beekeeper :-)
Hi Again Stampers!!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ Virtual Stamp Night JUN15VSNI “Happy Together” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) using the CC535 Color Challenge- Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry with dessert to add a punched or die cut element (see details here and gallery here) as well as the SC540 Sketch Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
Woohoo!! I was able to incorporate all of the nine elements for this “recipe” challenge and pulled out one of my favorite retired stamp sets, Betsy the Beekeeper (just love this gal with her honey hive and jars :-)).
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as the galleries!
To create this card:
Ink the retired stamp image, Betsy the Beekeeper using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Using an AquaPainter™, apply Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink to her dress and use Stampin’ Write Markers- Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Sahara Sand (for shadows) to finish coloring the image.
Use a sponge dauber with the Mini Punchenella stencil by Balzar Designs to add Daffofil Delight with the Honeycomb portion of the stencil to the background.
Trim the image and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Trim a piece of retired International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Create the Whisper White square card base and adhere a piece of retired Rich Razzleberry DSP (solid color from a retired Hostess Level I selection years ago) and add the 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” square of retired Beyond the Garden DSP.
Adhere a paper doily to the background (I used a Royal Lace 6” diameter doily from my stash) and add the DSP on an angle per the sketch.
Add a few pieces of Rich Razzleberry ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon loops to the side of the focal image and adhere the Bermuda Bay Sequins (cut from the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim) to the side of the card near the ribbon and add the Pink Rhinestones to the centers of the sequins as well as the flowers on her dress (the pink rhinestones were from a retired Stampin’ Up! Flower cardstock sticker pack- sorry, I do not recall the name:-)).
Add the focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the Rich Razzleberry bow (created with the Bow Builder Punch) along with the retired Daffodil Delight button.
Stamp the sentiment with using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the retired Word Window Punch to punch out the sentiment, create the banner points using the Banner Punch and adhere to a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock (also creating banner points with the Banner Punch).
Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
