SUO185 Peace, Joy, Love
It’s time for the #185 “Favorite Holiday Item” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
I have quite a few favorite items in our Holiday Catalog (the Cat Punch is my absolute favorite but I already used that for our last challenge:-)) so I decided to incorporate four other favorite items- the Quilt Builder Framelits™ Dies, the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits™ Dies and the Musical Season Stamp Set.
I also incorporated the Just Add Ink #380 Sketch Challenge into the design and am linking to the International Art & Soul #18 "Monochromatic" Challenge as well as the Simon Says Wednesday “Christmas”Challenge and the Little Red Wagon #414 "Classic Black and White" Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
1). Using the Big Shot™ with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
2). Trim a piece of Merry Music Specialty DSP for the vertical panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim close to the edge and mount into the card front per the JAI sketch.
3). Use the Big Shot™ with the Quilt Builder Framelits™ and die cut two quilt images from the Merry Music DSP and one from Basic Black cardstock and also cut the background square from Basic Black cardstock.
***FYI **** Glad® Press ‘n Seal® (PNS) works wonderfully to hold all of the quilt die pieces together as you build your quilt. Once I die cut the quilt, I put the sticky side of the PNS on the cut side of the die and make sure all of the pieces are adhered to the PNS before I “pop” out the quilt from the die. To arrange the pieces, just peel off each piece of the PNS and adhere to the quilt (I also used Two Way Glue to adhere the pieces to the quilt frame).
4). Die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the large snowflake border die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits™ Dies, trim off a snowflake and tuck under the vertical panel on the card front before mounting the layered quilt with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
5). De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from the Musical Season stamp set with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Trim the sentiment, cut the fishtail banners by hand (or use the retired Hexagon Punch as I did), adhere to a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Add a few Rhinestones to the card (center of the quilt and snowflake, near the sentiment) and finish off the card using Clear Wink of Stella® on the snowflake and quilt pieces.
