SUO117 Hello There Teen Card
It’s time for the new SUO117 “Just for Teens” Challenge and I decided to create a card using the new hostess set, Time to Celebrate along with a Project Life® by Stampin’ Up! Everyday Adventure project card as the base for the images.
Not sure if a teen would like this card but I think the bird image in this set is so cute!
I was also inspired by the Splitcoaststampers "Try A New Technique" TLC520 Embossing Folder Stamping Challenge- see their gallery here. I did use the embossing folder to stamp the chevron on the right hand side of the bird image :-)
I hope you will find the time to check the both challenge sites and create your own Stampin’ Up! Teen Card to join in on the fun!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock, trim and mount onto the Bermuda Bay card base.
Using the card from the Project Life® by Stampin’ Up! Everyday Adventure set, stamp the bird and sentiment from the hostess set, Time to Celebrate using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.
Color the bird using Stampin’ Write Markers- Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Rose Red (I could not locate my Strawberry Slush marker- oops!) :-). Use the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows around the bird, circle border, arrow and the sentiment box.
Ink the large splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp over the bird and sentiment images.
Ink the interior of the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder using Rose Red Classic Ink and spritz with a bit of water. Create a mask for the circle and sentiment box on the Project Life® card and lay the inked/spritzed part of the embossing folder face down onto the masked card to “stamp” the chevron.
Trim the Project Life® panel and round the top right hand corner using the 3/8” Project Life® Corner Rounder Punch. Use the 2 ½” Circle Punch to punch out a portion of the top left had corner.
Mount the panel onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock, round the top tight hand corner and remove part of the top left hand corner using the same punches as above.
Create the banner using the Banner Punch punching pieces from Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush cardstock as well as the retired Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Using a Craft Mat with a Hot Glue Gun, adhere the banners together in an arch form and add the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim to cover the glued edges.
Using the same papers as above, add a few banners to the lower right hand side of the panel as well.
Mount the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add a few Rhinestones near the sentiment to finish off the card.
