PPA216 Seashells Thinking of You

Hi Stampers! 
I wanted to share one more card with you that I created this past weekend using the PPA216 Sketch at Pals Paper Arts.  

Again, I hope you will find time to check out the Design Team samples as well as the rest of the gallery- it always amazes me that so many ideas can come from one sketch!

To create this card:

Ink the Hardwood background stamp with Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Trim the background panel for the vertical strip in the sketch.

Ink the sand dollar stamp from By The Seashore using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto the background.  Stamp another image onto a piece of sticky paper (or scrap paper) to create a mask and stamp the starfish image.

Using the same steps as above, create a mask for the starfish, place the mask for the sand dollar and starfish over the images and stamp the remaining shell image.

Color the seashells using a Sponge Dauber with Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink and apply a bit of Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink over the woodgrain background. 

Add additional details to the shells using the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker and shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker.  Use the Chalk Marker to add a few highlights and apply retired Frost White Shimmer Paint with the AquaPainter™. 

Mount the panel onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, trim and mount again onto Basic Black cardstock. 

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  Punch the sentiment using the 2 ½” Circle Punch, cut across the top and layer onto circles from Basic Gray and Basic Black cardstock.

Adhere the sentiment to the top of the layer and add a few corners of Basic Black cardstock (from the remaining halves of the circle).

Mount a panel of Typeset Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, trim and mount again onto Basic Black cardstock.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™  Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Basic Gray cardstock- trim and adhere to the lower edge of the panel.

Ink the Woodgrain background stamp using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.  Trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.

Adhere the frayed 1 ¼” Burlap ribbon to the DSP panel and mount the panel onto the card front adding the retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware to the lower corner.

Add the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
