CC490 You Make the World a Better Place :-)
Hi Again Stampers!
This month, I have been invited to be one of the Guest Designers for the Splitcoaststampers’ Color Challenge :-)
I found the CC490 Challenge Colors to be delightful together- Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi...the challenge came in when you could have a flower on the card but it cannot be the focal image (nor can the sentiment be the focal image)... I decided to add a map for the WT490 Ways to Use It Challenge as well :-)
Again, I hope you will find time to visit the gallery this week and possibly join in on the fun and create a card of your own!
To create this card (see the previous post for the 1st card):
Stamp the ship from Traveler onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink. Stamp another image onto a sticky note and mask the ship.
Use the 1 3/8” Circle Punch to punch out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and mask the area on a piece of Whisper White cardstock (with the circle cut out and over the ship area).
Use a Sponge Dauber with Daffodil Delight Classic Ink to color in the center of the masked circle, remove the mask and re-mask the “sun” using just the circle portion of the mask.
Create a mask for the horizon line (to mimic the ocean). Keep the circle and ship masks in place and using a Sponge Dauber, apply Daffodil Delight Classic Ink to show the reflection of the sun, Coastal Cabana Classic Ink for the water around the ship and Cherry Cobbler for the reflection of the ship.
Use the Stampin’ Blendabililites™ Cherry Cobbler Collection to color the ship. Re-mask the ship along with the sun and using Sponge Daubers, add Coastal Cabana along with Cherry Cobbler for the sky area. Use a Sakura .005 Micron Pen to add additional water lines to the ocean portion.
Punch the image out using the Big Shot™ with the Circles Collection Framelits™ and cut an additional circle from Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi cardstock.
Repeat the above masking and sponging steps for the globe image as well as the suitcase- coloring the globe using the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collection along with the Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write marker and the suitcase with the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Collections along with the Crumb Cake and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write markers.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut out the images and another oval from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
Before mounting the images on the matching ovals, ink the World Map background using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink – remask the ship, globe and suitcase images before stamping with the World Map.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink over the images to “antique” the Whisper White cardstock and apply Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink around the edges.
Mount the ship onto the Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi circles (cut the circles in half to allow a bit to show outside of the ship image). Mount the globe and suitcase images onto the ovals of Cherry Cobbler cardstock (cutting the ovals in half prior to mounting).
Stamp the World Map image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and distress the edges using the Distressing Tool. Apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink using a Sponge Dauber and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and mount onto the Wild Wasabi card base.
Mount a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock (previously embossed with the Big Shot™ and the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Add an additional strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and mount the strip onto the Coastal Cabana map background.
Add the ship, suitcase and globe images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the card front.
Ink the sentiment from Starburst Sayings using Coastal Cabana Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Re-ink the same stamp using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and stamp again onto Whisper White cardstock. Use the Big Shot™ with the Starburst Framelits™ Collection to cut out both sentiments- carefully trim the WORLD from the Coastal Cabana image.
Add the Daffodil Delight details on the sentiment using the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker and sponge additional Cherry Cobbler Classic ink along the edges.
Mount the Coastal Cabana “WORLD” image and add the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals™.
Add a few Daffodil Delight Candy Dots to finish off the card.
