Smart Is Cool- A No Stamps and Theme Challenge :-)
Hi Again Stampers!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ WT554 “Smartis Cool” Challenge (to use an image with a book, book pages, etc.) along with the F4A296 “no Stamps” Challenge (use die cuts, designer paper but no stamps).
I just love Graphic45® Designer Papers and this card uses the retired Place In Time (September) paper along with a numbers die cut. Although the challenge is "Smart is Cool" it does not appear as though this little boy thinks so - lol!!
I hope you will have time to visit the linked galleries above, definitely a challenge to create a card without stamps but Graphic45® makes it so easy!
To create this card:
Separate the September Place In Time Cut Apart page by cutting the individual images and choose the images that you would like to highlight for your card.
Trim the edges and mount onto Basic Black cardstock and trim.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock (this piece was already embossed and in my stash), trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Arrange the Graphic45® images and mount onto the card front using dimensional foam.
Use the Big Shot™ to die cut the numbers from retired More Mustard cardstock using the retired Go Go Boots Sizzlets™, use an AquaPainter™ with Frost White and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to paint over the numbers.
Adhere the numbers to the card front to finish off the card.
Quick and easy since the Graphic 45™ paper does most of the work for you!!
Stamp Sets: None
Ink: None; Frost White and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
Paper/Cardstock: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, retired More Mustard; Graphic45® retired Place In Time (September)
Accessories: Big Shot™, Diamond Sizzix™ Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, retired Go Go Boots Sizzlets™, Watch Charm (from my stash- I believe Paper Studio™)
Thanks again for visiting- have a wonderful Friday!
