SUO152 The Wilderness Awaits
It’s time for the SUO152 “Delight in Nature” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
I love all types of nature and always seem to have a need for masculine cards, so I decided to use The Wilderness Awaits for this quick and easy nature card.
I also incorporated the Splitcoaststampers SC598 Sketch Challenge along with Alphabet Week 20 “T” Challenge (T=Trees, Twine, Texture, Thinking of You).
In addition to visiting the above Splitcoaststampers challenge galleries, I hope you will stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out my sister Design Team projects as well as pull out your Stampin’ Up! supplies and join in on the fun!
This card is fairly easy to create (coloring the image was the most time-consuming step):
Ink the mallard image from The Wilderness Awaits with Basic Black Stampin’ Archival Pad™, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Color the image with Stampin’ Write markers and an AquaPainter™ (I used a photo for color reference), heat with the Heat Tool to dry and use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Framelits™ to cut out the image (also cutting two ovals the same size from Early Espresso cardstock).
Ink the interior of the Woodland Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Smoky Slate Classic Ink and emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto Dapper Denim cardstock, trim and mount onto Early Espresso cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Garden Green cardstock as well as a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock.
Die cut the Dapper Denim cardstock with the Circle Framelits™, cutting a circle the same size from Early Espresso cardstock as well (layer the Early Espresso circle behind the embossed Dapper Denim circle).
Trim the embossed Garden Green layer and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Adhere the Garden Green layer onto the card front, add the Dapper Denim embossed circle and mount the focal image oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Heat emboss the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder onto Early Espresso cardstock, hand trim and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere the entire card front onto an Extra Thick Whisper White card base and add the retired wooden button with twine to finish off the card.
