It’s that time again, a new SU-Only Challenge!! The new SUO91 Challenge is “Banner Fun”- create a decorative banner or use banners on your project and the colors used were for the LOVEFEST2014F Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
I hope you will have the time to check out the rest of the fantastic Design Team projects as well as create your own and share with us :-)
I used My Digital Studio (MDS) along with traditional stamping, etc. to create this "hybrid" card :
Ink the ledger stamp from The Open Sea using Soft Suede Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp onto a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. Using Soft Suede Classic Ink, add the Gorgeous Grunge details and sponge additional Soft Suede Classic Ink along the edges. Adhere to the top half of the Early Espresso card base.
Using My Digital Studio (MDS) insert and print the ship from The Open Sea (I re-sized the ship down to a smaller size) and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes (enlarged a bit) onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Punch out using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch, add a few shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and stamp with the Gorgeous Grunge splatter image (“huff” from previous inking in the first step) and sponge a bit of Soft Suede Classic Ink around the edges.
Mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (split the same size circle as the image), distress with the Distressing Tool and adhere to a circle of Cherry Cobbler. Distress this layer as well and sponge a bit of Soft Suede Classic Ink to distress the paper.
Create the banners using the new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) set, Banner Blast by stamping the chevron banner using Midnight Muse and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink onto a piece of the SAB Designer Series Paper (DSP), Sweet Sorbet (I used the Sahara Sand piece) and the Love banner using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the new Banner Punch to cut out the stamped banners and also create a few solid color banners from Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and the SAB DSP (hint- to create a longer banner, cut a piece of cardstock or DSP a bit smaller than the width of the punch and insert into the punch under the banner point area only to cut the points).
Trim the sentiment and create the banner points using the Banner Punch (again insert into the punch with the punch facing up and only insert the paper into the banner point end).
Adhere to a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, distress the edges and add the layer of banners under the strip.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Mount to the lower portion of the Early Espresso card base, curling the corners by hand and add the White Tea Lace Paper Doily (cut in half).
Adhere the Cherry Cobbler banner strip to the center and hide the seams of the two background panels.
Add the ship image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with Pearls to finish off the card.
