Thinking of You on Father's Day- A Sketch Using Retired Sets :-)
I have been busy organizing my craft room and decided to create an additional Father's Day card to have on hand using some of my neglected retired items along with Leanne’s PP147 sketch at The Paper Players.
Again, if you have a chance, stop by The Paper Players site for terrific inspiration from their Design Team as well as the other entries- great job by all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Embossing Buddy® and ink the clock and gear images from Sense of Time using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Winter White Espresso Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool to melt the powder.
Once cooled using Sponge Daubers, apply Classic Ink- first Crumb Cake, followed by the new 2013-2015 In Color Baked Brown Sugar, the new Smoky Slate, Soft Suede and finally Early Espresso. Ink the retired Wonderfully Worn background stamp using Basic Gray Classic Ink to add a bit of distressing along with a bit more Winter White embossing powder and a White Gel Pen.
Carefully cut out the clock image and also trim the gear image panel. Cut into panels for the sketch and mount onto Very Vanilla and/or embossed panels of Baked Brown Sugar per the PP147 sketch.
Add the 3/8” Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon along with the sentiment from the retired set, Thinking of Father (the sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Early Espresso Classic Ink and the edges were punched with the New Artisan Punch).
