SUO147 Bravo! You Did It- Congratulations

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the SUO147 “Congratulations” Challenge and I decided to create another card for the Splitcoaststampers’ April 2016 Cards for A Cause (see details here about this card drive).


 I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site as well as the fantastic Design Team samples and entries at the other galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!



To create this card:

The background was designed using the Smakin' Acetate Technique using a page protector or clear envelope (acetate)- open one side and the bottom to create a “book”, press the Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink pads onto the right hand side (I use the ink pads directly versus the markers as in the tutorial),  spritz with water, close the envelope and “smoosh” the ink a bit with your finger, reopen the envelope and insert a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto each side (you will receive two background panels).

Trim the one panel, stamp the coral image from By The Tide with Blackberry Classic Ink, de-static the panel, ink the “Bravo!” sentiment with Versamark™ ink, re-ink immediately with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink, stamp onto the panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Allow the embossed panel to cool, ink the “Bravo!” sentiment with Versamark™ ink, offset from the original stamped sentiment a bit to the left, stamp onto the panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Ink the Chalk Lines border stamp using Blackberry Bliss and stamp onto the left hand side of the remaining panel (created in step 1 with the  Smakin’ Acetate technique). 
Ink the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and add a bit of distressing to the background as well as the embossed sentiment focal image panel.

Trim the background panel, decide where you would like to place the focal image panel and stamp the “you did it” stamp with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.

Mount the trimmed background panel onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.

Ink the sea turtle image with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the image with and AquaPainter™ and ink from the Sahara Sand and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink Pads.

Use the Sahara Sand and Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Write Markers to add shadows and additional color, fussy-cut the image and apply Clear Wink of Stella® over the turtle.

Mount the focal image panel along with the sea turtle using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  From Land to Sea, By The Tide, Bravo, Chalk Lines, Timeless Textures

Ink:  Versamark™, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand; Stampin’ Write Markers- Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand ; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
Accessories: Clear Envelope, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® White and Clear Embossing Powder

Thanks again for stopping by and we hope to see your Stampin’ Up! Only project in our “Congratulations” Challenge gallery!
