PPA197 Go in the Direction of Your Dreams
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I have been busy preparing for an upcoming Demo meeting with my upline and fellow Demonstrators so I have not been able to share any creations yet but decided to create a quick card using the Pals Paper Arts PPA197 Sketch along with Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with another homemade map from My Digital Studio (MDS).
I hope you have the time to stop by the Pals Paper Arts site- great inspiration from the Design Team as well as the other entries!
To create this card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), position the images onto an 8.5x11 blank page and print out. I used the World Map stamp brush image (I reduced the size) as well as the sentiment from Word Play stamp brush set. One thing that I love about MDS for cards- the images may be retired in the rubber stamp catalog but are still current in MDS :-)
Color the map using AquaPainter™ and Pool Party Classic Ink for the water, Gumball Green and Crumb Cake Classic Ink for the land masses. Trim and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Add a piece of Soho Subway DSP onto the Early Espresso card base.
Adhere a piece of Epic Day This and That DSP onto Early Espresso cardstock for the second diagonal layer on the card front and add the Naturals Button with Natural Linen Thread. Mount this onto the card front on an angle per the sketch.
Layer the 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon onto the card front overlapping the diagonal layer with the button at the bottom. Add a few pieces of Natural Linen Thread knotted on the one side over the burlap ribbon.
Add the map image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere the sentiment to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and stamp with Off the Grid using Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Use a Sponge Dauber to add additional Crumb Cake Classic Ink to tone down the white of the paper and adhere the knotted Natural Linen Thread to the corners and add to the front of the map/burlap using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
