World Traveling Celebration :-)
I wanted to create another card using the new stamp, Traveler along with our new Typeset Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes with No Topping" Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers WT483 “Swing in the Hammock” Challenge :-)
I hope that you will have a chance to visit both sites- so many ideas and inspiration!!
To create this card:
Ink the images from the stamp set Traveler using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock.
Add a few shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and a bit of distressing with the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and Sahara Sand Classic Ink.
Punch the suitcase, journal and camera images out using the 1 3/8” Square Punch and trim the globe using the Paper Trimmer. Mount onto Basic Black cardstock and trim the frames around the images.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply a bit of Sahara Sand Classic Ink over the images (to help tone the Very Vanilla cardstock).
Ink the Postively Chevron background stamp using Sahara Sand Classic Ink and lay the piece of Typeset DSP over the inked stamp.
Lightly apply pressure in a random pattern over the paper. Ink the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Sahara Sand and Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly to the background to add a bit of distressing.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and use the Sponge Dauber to apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink and mount this layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Add the vertical panels of Very Vanilla cardstock (layered onto Basic Black cardstock and distressed with the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp using Sahara Sand Classic Ink).
Adhere the strands of 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon (the burlap was pulled apart for another post here and these were a few of the leftover strands- again, love using my scraps)!
Add the mounted suitcase, camera and journal images around the perimeter of the globe image (the globe is mounted using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Starburst Sayings using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Use the Big Shot™ with the Starburst Framelits™ to cut around the sentiment and also cut a starburst from Basic Black cardstock using the same size framelit™.
Split the Basic Black layer into two and adhere behind the sentiment allowing a bit of the frame to “peek” out at the top and bottom.
Mount the sentiment to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere the entire panel onto a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and mount onto the Basic Black card base to finish off the card.
