SUO168 Sale-A-Bration Fun!
Woohoo! It’s that time again for a new challenge at SU-Only Challenges and challenge #168 is all about “Sale-A-Bration Fun”.
I decided to create a Mixed Media card using the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) sets, Delicate Details and Avant-Garden along with the main catalog sets, Papillon Potpourri and Timeless Textures.
I incorporated the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC444 Color Challenge as well as the FabFri105 Sketch Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challengesite to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the stamps from Delicate Details (SAB) with Versamark™ ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the heat tool.
2). Once the embossing has cooled, use an AquaPainter™ with ink from the Dapper Denim Classic Ink Pad to watercolor over the embossing. Add a bit of splatter distressing with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures and wipe away all excess ink from the embossed areas with a slightly damp paper towel. Trim the embossed panel and mount onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Trim the panel again and mount onto a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock, finally trimming once more before adhering the entire panel to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
3). Use the Big Shot™ along with the Layering Circles Framelits™ to die cut a piece of Whisper White and Crumb Cake from a smaller circle die and Dapper Denim cardstock using the next larger circle die. Split the Crumb Cake die cut circle in half and adhere behind the white die cut circle allowing the edges to just peek out from behind. Layer onto the Dapper Denim die cut circle. Add a bit of splatter with the Timeless Textures small splatter image using Dapper Denim ink and adhere directly to the card front (per the sketch).
4). Ink the floral image from Avant-Garden (SAB) with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black ink, heat set with the heat tool and watercolor using the AquaPainter™ and Stampin’ Write Markers- Crumb Cake for the leaves, Peekaboo Peach for the blossoms. Once you are satisfied with the coloring, fussy-cut the images and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
5). Ink the lace border image from Delicate Details (SAB) with Dapper Denim Classic Ink, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, lightly apply Clear Wink® over the stamped lace image (this will watercolor the image a bit), fussy-cut around the lace edge and mount onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals®.
6). Heat emboss the sentiment from Avant-Garden (SAB) with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder onto Dapper Denim cardstock, trim the image and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
7). Ink the butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black Ink and stamp three images onto Whisper White cardstock, watercolor with the AquaPainter™ using the Stampin’ Write Peekaboo Peach marker, punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and mount onto the card front.
8). Apply Clear Wink of Stella® to the butterfly wings and pearls to the centers of the butterflies as well as to the upper right hand corner along with the sentiment. Use the White Gel Pen to add a few highlights to the center of the flowers to finish off the card.
