Thanks for All that You Do- PPA227 and SUO110!
Hi Again Stampers!
This card was created for The Pals Paper Arts PPA227 Color Challenge as well as another card for the SUO110 SU-Only "Marker Fun" Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- atremendous inspiration from all!!
To create this card:
Stamp the various images from the retired Established Elegance set using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and Old Olive Classic Ink (for the scroll) onto Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the images of the key and medal onto repositionable note paper or scrap paper and cut around the images to use as a mask.
Mask the key and medal images and stamp the floral image as well as the script image (from French Foliage) using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink. Color the images using Stampin’ Write markers- Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.
Add a bit of distressing with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink.
Use the Note Punch to punch out the images and sponge additional Baked Brown Sugar onto the tags to “antique” the Whisper White cardstock. Using the Note Punch, punch two tags from Old Olive cardstock, cut the tags apart and mount behind the stamped tag images.
Use the retired Slot Punch to punch holes at the top of the tag, insert the Pumpkin Pie Organdy Ribbon and tie with Linen Thread.
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), insert the bodice image onto a blank 8.5 x 11 document, enlarge and print onto Whisper White cardstock. Carefully cut out the image (“fussy-cut”) and color with the Stampin’ Write Crushed Curry marker.
Create the rolled flowers with the 1 ¼” and ¾” Scallop Circle Punches- punch one of each from Pumpkin Pie cardstock, carefully cut a wavy spiral from the outside edge toward the center, roll up and adhere in the center (I use Hot Glue to adhere).
Using the Bird Builder Punch, punch the leaves from Old Olive cardstock and trim to a smaller size to match the flowers. Adhere the leaves behind the flowers and add the smallest rose to the center of the bodice.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (ink the smooth side of the interior of the folder first with Baked Brown Sugar) and emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Trim the embossed panel and mount onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.
Add the embossed panel to a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount the entire background panel onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock and trim once more and mount to the Pumpkin Pie card base.
Add the tags to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the sentiment (from the retired set, Absolutely Fabulous and banner points created with the Banner Punch) along with 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Pumpkin Pie rolled flower and Old Olive leaves.
Double the Stampin’ Dimensionals® to create additional height behind the bodice and add to the card front to finish off the card.
