SUO124 Thinking of You on the Starry Sea :-)
It’s time for the new SUO124 “Stars and Stripes” Challenge (it does not have to be patriotic) and since my last project was patriotic, I decided to use the Star Collection Framelits™ along with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to create my “Stars and Stripes” card.
I also incorporated the Fusion 06/04/15 “Blue Skies and Smooth Sailing”Challenge using their sketch as inspiration as well as some of the colors from the inspiration photo.
I hope you will find the time to check out all the rest of our Design Team ideas as well as those at the Fusion site and come join in on the “Stars and Stripes” fun by creating your own project using Stampin’ Up! Only products!!
To create this card:
Ink the ship image from Traveler with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp another image onto a piece of scrap paper to use as a mask.
Create a mask for the sun using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch.
Place the mask for the ship over the stamped image and place the mask for the sun over the ship’s mask and onto the Whisper White cardstock.
Use Sponge Daubers to apply Melon Mambo and Tangelo Twist Classic Ink for the sky, create a mask for the skyline and apply Pool Party and Island Indigo to the water area.
Remove the masks and color the ship with the Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker (add shadows with the Sahara Sand marker).
Darken the sea area for the shadow of the ship and add additional lines to the water with the Basic Black Stampin’ Marker.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Star Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image and also cut the same size star from Island Indigo and Tangelo Twist cardstock.
Cut the Island Indigo and Tangelo Twist stars in half and mount behind the focal image.
Ink the World Map background stamp using Island Indigo Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock.
Trim the piece to 1 ½” and punch the banner end with the new Banner Triple Punch.
Trim a piece of Island Indigo cardstock to 1 ¾” and punch the banner with the Banner Triple Punch, mount the World Map banner to the Island Indigo layer.
Trim a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock to approx. 2” and punch with the Banner Triple Punch, add the layered World Map pieces to complete the vertical banner.
Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ along with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock, trim and mount onto the Tangelo Twist card base.
Adhere the layered World Map banner strip to the embossed background and add the star focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and create the banner points with the Banner Punch.
Mount onto pieces of Island Indigo and Tangelo Twist (also using the Banner Punch to create the banner points), adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.
