HYCCT1515 Celebrate the Season

Hi Again Friends!!

This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To  HYCCT1515 Barbat52’s  “Stretch Your Stamps” Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ CC549 Color Challenge (with dessert of Christmas) and the SC513 Sketch Challenge.

The “Stretch Your Stamps” challenge is to use the back of your clear stamps as the actual stamp.  This was a fun challenge to think "outside" the box but I think the result is a bit on the contemporary side for me- lol!!

Again, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above galleries and possibly take some time to create a card and join in on the fun!!

The circular images are from inking the back side of the
 sunflowers in the Prim Blessings set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps:-)
To create this card:

Adhere the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Prim Blessings sunflower images ( onto clear blocks with the raised portion of the stamp onto the block (so that you are inking the smooth back side of the actual stamp).

Ink the large sunflower using Lost Lagoon Classic and the smaller sunflower with Encore™ Silver Ink- stamp both and reink repeatedly onto the Whisper White cardstock panel.

Apply Clear Stampin’ Emboss Embossing Powder to the silver images and heat with the Heat Tool to set the powder.

Ink the medium and large snowflakes from the retired Festive Flurry stamp sets using Versamark™ ink, apply Silver Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Stamp another medium snowflake onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, using Versamark™ ink, apply Silver Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Front view (the reverse of the stamps appear as
circles with a bit of a rough edge- gives the images
a bit of character :-))

Cut the snowflake from the Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the coordinating framelits™.

Ink the small snowflake with Lost Lagoon Classic Ink, stamp off and fill in some of the white areas (lightly rubbing the excess ink off the embossed areas).

Cut the background panel on an angle and mount onto Brushed Silver cardstock, add the 3/8” Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon and mount the panel onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Ink the sentiment from Endless Wishes using Lost Lagoon Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, create the banners using the Hexagon Punch and mount to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the embossed snowflake using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add Rhinestones to the card front to finish off the card.
