Thinking of You- A Color, A Sketch and An Assortment Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far!  I was able to complete one more card for a few challenges this morning- the AW33 Sketch Challenge, the CCMC338 ColorChallenge and the AYSI070 Assortment Challenge.  

Again, I hope you have the time to stop by the above sites to check out the great inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other entries!

I decided to create a Clean and Layered card with one of my favorite sets, By The Tide along with the new set, Moon Lake (for the sentiment).  

To create this card:

Ink the coral stamp from By The Tide using the Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the script stamp using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp off before stamping over the coral area.

Ink the Nantucket stamp using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the ¾” Circle Punch.

Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Calypso Coral Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp over the images.  Trim the panel and mount onto Calypso Coral cardstock.

Create the banners by applying Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Classic Ink onto the background stamp, Positively Chevron.  Stamp the chevron onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Banner Punch.  Color the Whisper White portion with the Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write marker and distress with the Distressing Tool.

Using Natural Linen, create the banner line with a few knots and add the banners to the line.  Mount the banner on an angle to the focal image panel and add the Nantucket image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Ink the fish image using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, color with the Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers and add a few highlights with the White Gel Pen.

Carefully cut out the fish image and add to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 
Add the focal image to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim and mount onto the Calypso Coral card base.

Ink the sentiment using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.

Add a few Rhinestones to the banner, sentiment and focal image to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  By The Tide, Gorgeous Grunge, Moon Lake

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral; Stampin’ Write Markers- Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry, White Gel Pen

Paper:  Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
