SSC184 Possibilities

Happy New Year to all of my stamping friends!  I hope all of you had a safe and wonderful time celebrating another new year! 

I have been busy at work this week with end of year procedures in accounting and have not had a chance to stamp as much as I would like, but I wanted to create a card using the fantastic sketch #SSC184 from Stamping 411 with the Operators ( ).   Isn’t this a cool sketch?  If you have a moment and have not had a chance to visit them yet, please check out all of their Design Team’s cards along with the other entries- such wonderful ideas and inspiration!

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper EF, emboss a piece of Newsprint DSP and lightly sand with the Sanding Block to reveal the white core.  Sponge the raised edges of the sanded DSP with Early Espresso ink and spray the entire piece with Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol).

De-static a piece of Very Vanilla with the Embossing Buddy and using Versamark ink stamp the clock image from Sense of Time.  Heat emboss with Basic Black EP and use Sponge Daubers along with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso ink.  Apply the ink randomly to the clock face to “antique” the stamped image. 

Sponge Early Espresso over the center part of the Medallion background stamp and stamp in the center the clock face.  Remoisten the center stamped portion of the Medallion stamp by “huffing” on the ink and stamp twice more on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Distress the Very Vanilla piece with the Sponge Daubers as described for the clock face and spray with the Frost White Shimmer Paint.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso Marker to “spritz” both the clock face and the medallion strip.

Layer the Medallion strip onto Basic Black and trim to fit on the edges of the clock face.  Using the Eyelet Border Punch, punch the edges of another piece of Very Vanilla, run through the Crimper Tool and attach to the back of the Medallion strip. 

Stamp the sentiment from Peace Within using Basic Black on a circle of Very Vanilla (cut from the Circle Die and the Big Shot).  Distress this piece using the Sponge Daubers and ink from the instructions above and mount to the back of the Medallion strip. 

Assemble the card onto Very Vanilla (sponged along the edges).  Use the Modern Label Punch to punch out a piece from Basic Black and spray this with Frost White Shimmer Paint.   Cut in half, adhere to the front of the card and add the pearls to complete the card.
