You Are Not Forgotten
I had a chance to spend some time stamping this evening and decided to create a card using the MFTWSC273 Sketch Challenge along with the MFT #42 Color Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ WT576 “Book Pages or Print” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful Design Team samples and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
With the Big Shot™ and the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the #4 and #6 Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock with the stitched rectangle die from the MFT Blueprints 20 Dies.
Ink the Forget Me Not from My Favorite Things (MFT) stems using Steel Gray ink and stamp onto the #4 Stitched Rectangle Die cut piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the larger Forget Me Not petal with retired Cameo Coral Classic Ink, stamp onto the Whisper White panel, re-ink the image with retired Poppy Parade Classic Ink (stamping off a bit) and stamp onto the previously stamped petals.
Ink the smaller petal from Forget Me Not with Cameo Coral Classic Ink and add to the panel, ink the center of the stamp with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write marker and stamp over the Cameo Coral image.
Create a mask for the floral images, ink the text border image from Forget Me Not (MFT) with Marina Mist Classic Ink and add to the background.
Lightly sponge Marina Mist Classic Ink over the edges and spray the image with Frost White Shimmer Paint Spray.
Use the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker to add white highlights to the flower centers.
Mount the floral image panel onto a piece of Marina Mist cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and set aside.
Repeatedly stamp the text border image from Forget Me Not (MFT) with Marina Mist Classic Ink onto the #6 Stitched Rectangle die cut, sponge Marina Mist Classic Ink over the edges and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.
Repeat the stamping process as noted above on the Marina Mist Stitched die cut.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Marina Mist cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Gray card base.
Add the stamped Marina Mist panel along with the stamped text layered panel.
Cut the banner die from MFT Blueprints 20 from Cameo Coral and Poppy Parade cardstock, split in the center (behind the focal image) to create the lengths needed per the sketch.
Add the banners and mount the focal image with dimensional foam.
Stamp the sentiment from Forget Me Not (MFT) with Steel Grey ink onto Whisper White cardstock and create the flag end with the Hexagon Punch.
Mount the sentiment along with the gray button and Pearls to finish off the card.
