Sun Ripened- Two Cards for The Friday Mashup!

Hi Stampers!

I was able to sneak in a few moments in my craft room and decided to create a card for this week’s FM129 Inspiration from Mom Challenge at The FridayMashup!  

I decided to “mash it up” and use the colors and the fruit inspiration and pulled out another one of my neglected, retired sets- Sun Ripened.   

I love the fruit images in this retired set and while I had it out, stamped two sets of each image and colored them in the same manner as described below with the FM129 colors.  I decided to set four of the images aside for later use- love to do this for quick, easy cards in the future :-)

For these two cards, I utilized a few of the SplitcoaststampersSketch Challenges (SC221 and SC185)-   Again, I hope you will take a moment to check out both sites – great inspiration and ideas from all :-)

To create the watercolored panels for both cards:

Stamp the raspberry image using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and carefully watercolor using the AquaPainter™ without ink at first- the Early Espresso line images will give you a antiqued almost sepia look and then lightly add a bit of Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink over the berry images. 

Color the images using the Stampin’ Write markers- So Saffron for the leaves and Sahara Sand for the shadows and add the highlights using the Chalk Marker.

Use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake ink to “antique” the paper and add a bit of Early Espresso over the edges.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add additional distressing. 

Assemble the first card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with another oval the same size from Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso cardstock.  Cut the Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso frames in half horizontally to layer behind the focal image.

Using the Big Shot™, emboss a piece of So Saffron Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Early Espresso DSP with the Beautiful Baroque Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Lightly sand with the Sanding Block to slightly distress the paper.

Create the layers per the SC221 Sketch, add to the Early Espresso card base.  Adhere the focal image/panel and add the 5/8” triple Satin Ribbon bow along with the sentiment and Pearls to finish off the card.

To assemble the second card:

Punch a 1” Square Punch to punch out the berry image, mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  Add the 5/8” triple Satin Ribbon bow and mount again onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Adhere a piece of Early Espresso DSP to a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the central rectangle and mount the raspberry panel image onto the DSP layer.

Use the Big Shot™ along with the Hexagon Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of So Saffron cardstock- sponge a bit of Crumb Cake over the embossed image.

Add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon strips, mount the focal image over the strips of ribbon and mount the entire panel onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Mount onto the Early Espresso card base and add the sentiment from Wetlands along with the Pearls to finish off the card.
