The Fabric of Friendship- Three Challenges in One!
Here is another card I created this weekend and I chose three challenges to use for this card- the Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability “MIX78 Summer Tags” and SC498 SketchChallenge along with the Fab Friday FabFri46 Color Challenge.
I have linked each challenge above, so if you have not had a chance to visit the sites, I hope you will take the time to check out all of the different designs- wonderful inspiration from all!
Use a brayer to apply Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush Classic Ink onto the Gelli Arts® Printing Plate. Lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the plate and smooth to lift your first print.
Apply a honeycomb stencil over the Gelli Arts® Printing Plate and brayer Coastal Cabana Classic Ink over the stencil onto the plate. Re-position the stencil and brayer additional Coastal Cabana ink, lay the original print over the stencil area to lift your second print.
Apply a dot stencil over the Gelli Arts® Printing Plate and apply Strawberry Slush Classic Ink using a brayer and lay the original print over the stencil area to lift your third print.
Ink the stamp image from the retired set, Fabric of Friendship using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and color the image using Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Collections, Strawberry Slush Stampin’ Write marker and accents with the Chalk Marker.
Trim the stamped image to a 1 7/8” width and use the Scalloped Top Tag Punch to punch out the tag at the top and the Project Life® Corner Punch to punch the corners at the bottom of the tag.
Cut a 2” piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and punch the top with the Scalloped Top Tag Punch to punch out the tag at the top and the Project Life® Corner Punch to punch the corners and layer behind the stamped image.
Cut a 5.5” x 5.5” Card Base from Whisper White cardstock and cover with Coastal Cabana cardstock and add a layer of Polka Dot Designer Series Paper (DSP)- from my stash.
Emboss a piece of Daffodil Delight DSP with the Needlepoint Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and add two strips of Washi Tape. Mount onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock.
Emboss a piece of Daffodil Delight DSP with the Sizzix Pattern embossing folder and lightly sand the DSP to expose the white core. Also emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the same pattern embossing folder and layer onto a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock.
Layer the embossed panels onto the background panel and add the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create a paper bow using Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Large Oval Punch and strips of Coastal Cabana cardstock (using the Hexagon Punch for the banner points). Add the bow to the tag using an Antique Brad for the center.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and color the heart using the Stampin’ Write Strawberry Slush marker. Punch out using the Decorative Tag Punch and layer onto another punched image from Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Decorative Tag Punch.
Add the Daffodil Delight button along with the Vintage Trinket pin and Washi Tape.
Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
