Happy 15th Birthday- A Vintage Auto for a Fabulous Nephew!
I wanted to share a Mixed Media card that I created this past weekend for the FM194 FridayMashup! Challenge along with the Seize the Birthday 011515 Sketch Challenge and the USEIT2015 Splitcoaststampers Challenge (the Antique Autos stamp set is from 2001 and has rarely been used).
I decided not to "MASHITUP" since we do not have any infants in our immediate family and used the colors only.
I wanted to create a special card for my wonderful nephew (I sure hope he is not checking my blog this week since his celebration with on Saturday :-))- I cannot believe that he is 15 already and wants to apply for his driver's license-time flies when you are having fun!
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- they all have wonderful Design Teams and tremendous inspiration from their galleries each week!
To create this card:
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the auto image from the retired Antique Autos set using Versamark™ ink.
Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Window Frame Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image and also cut another frame from Early Espresso cardstock (using the same size framelit™ as the embossed image).
Split the Early Espresso frame in half and mount behind the focal image.
To create the collage panel for the vertical strip of the sketch, ink a few of the remaining stamps in the set using Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White (masking the images to overlap as you stamp them onto the cardstock).
Trim the panel and adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock using a sewing machine.
Use Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to “antique” the collage panel as well as the automobile image.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the strips of Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper (DSP) and add the strips to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock using a sewing machine. Add a bit of Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to distress the edges and tone down the Tangerine Tango color.
Add the vertical collage panel and focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Ink the sentiment using Early Espresso Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Adhere the sentiment to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and create the banner points for the Early Espresso layer using the Hexagon Punch as well.
Add the sentiment to the lower portion of the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use Metallic™ Art Titanium Teal Acrylic Paint to paint the chipboard numbers (from my stash from years ago- do not know the manufacturer’s name).
Add the chipboard numbers to the card front along with the retired Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware and ¼” Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon to finish off the card.
