SUO102 Favorite New Toys along with the PPA213 Sketch :-)
Time for the new SU-Only Challenges SUO102 Favorite New Toys Challenge along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA213 Sketch- again, such a great gallery and Design Team at The Pals Paper Arts!
For the SU-Only SUO102 Challenge, ww are encouraging you to create a new project using your favorite Stampin’ Up! products from the new catalog! My favorite new toy (other than all of the fabulous new stamp sets) is our Stampin’ Blendabilities™- love the blending of these colors!!
I normally shy away from the "cute" images since I never know exactly what to do with them but I love the "critters" in Life in the Forest and could not resist this set for my collection :-)
I hope that you will check out the rest of the Design Team projects and share with us your "favorite" new toy using your Stampin’ Up! Only creations!
To create this card:
Ink the images from Life in the Forest and Choose Happiness using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the images using the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collections- Smokly Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crumb Cake. Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker on the raccoon
Hand-cut (“fussy cut”) each image (except for the trees) and trim around the trees to create a rectangle for the parts of the sketch.
On the tree image rectangles, sketch a grass line using the Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker and color the sky using the light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker and the grass using the light Old Olive Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker.
Trim around the sentiment and color using the light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker.
Color the woodgrain stamped image from Choose Happiness using the Blush Neutral and Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blendabilities™ markers.
Mount the tree images, the woodgrain and the sentiment onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount again onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Basic Black cardstock using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto the Whisper White cardstock base.
Add the tree images to the upper and lower corner of the card (per the sketch) and adhere the stacked animal images.
Layer the woodgrain stamped image square and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the Natural Linen Thread bow along with the retired Naturals Button to finish off the card.
