I had a great time stamping with friends today- love it when we can get together!!
After dinner this evening, I had the chance to design a card using the fun PPA253 Pals Paper Arts Sketch using a soon-to-be retired stamp set, Four Feathers.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the Pals Paper Arts site- such wonderful inspiration from their Design Team as well as their challenge gallery!
To create this card:
Create the fun background layer from Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Adhere the background layer onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Trim a piece of Tempting Turquoise DSP, round the corners with the Envelope Punch Board and emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Arrows Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Adhere to a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and round the corners with the Envelope Punch Board.
Use the Sanding Block to lightly sand the DSP to bring out the white core.
Ink the feather stamps using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Feather Framelits™ to cut out the feathers, trim a bit closer to the edge of the feathers, cut into each to create a more realistic feather edge and mount the three feathers onto the embossed Tempting Turquoise panel.
Create the Whisper White bow using the Bow Builder Punch, add the Tempting Turquoise button (with Basic Black cardstock strands as “thread) to the center and add the bow to the panel.
Ink the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner points using the Banner Punch, mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and use the Banner Punch to create the banner points.
Add the sentiment to the bottom of the panel and mount the panel onto Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
