JUN14VSNI Masking Birthday Fun!
Here is another card for the Splitcoaststampers’ Virtual Stamp Night- Summer Vacation JUN14VSNI “TanLines” along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSC187 Color Challenge.
Again, if you have not visited either of the sites above, I hope you will take the time to do so- great ideas and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Since the “Tan Lines” Challenge is to use masking, I used two different types of masks. The initial mask is a square cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Square Collections Framelits™ (the opening was remaining after the image was cut out) and I used sticky notes to mask the flowers as I stamped the images.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Blushing Bride Classic Ink to apply the background ink onto the opening from the square cutout.
Using Stippled Blossoms along with Strawberry Slush Classic Ink, repeatedly stamp a few of the flowers. Mask the flowers using a sticky note and stamp again (huffing onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping). With the flower masks still in place, stamp the leaves using Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink. Remove the masks and stamp a few of the small flowers using Blushing Bride Classic Ink.
Trim around the panel allowing some of the white to show and mount onto a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock.
Adhere a piece of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock, trim and mount onto the Strawberry Slush card base.
Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the XL Oval Punch. Mount onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock also punched with the XL Oval Punch.
Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card and mount the main focal panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the Strawberry Slush cardstock bow along with the Antique Brad.
Stamp the butterflies using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink onto Blushing Bride cardstock and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Use the Strawberry Slush Stampin’ Write marker to color part of the butterfly and add a few highlights with the Chalk Marker.
Add to the card front along with a few Pearls to finish off the card.
