Nautical Mixed Media Thinking of You

Hi Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a great day!   We had a wonderful time in worship this morning and I had a chance to create a card this afternoon using the Pals Paper Arts PPA259 Color Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers' Mix-Ability MIX127 "Red, White and Blue" Challenge (see details here and gallery here), the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSIC215 Inspiration Challenge as well as the TGIF Challenge! TGI11 Sketch and the Addicted to Stamps and More #152 “Make Your Mark” Challenge (the last two are "new" challenge sites for me :-)). 

Again, if you have not visited the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- terrific Design Team designs and as well as their galleries!!

To create this Mixed Media card:

Use Ranger® Tim Holtz® Picket Fence Distress Stain to tone down the Pacific Point striped Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the retired High Tide.

Using a sewing machine, stitch the panel onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and distress the edges with the retired Distressing Tool. 

Adhere the distressed panel to a piece of Real Red  cardstock and mount onto the Pacific Point card base.

Create a tag from Whisper White cardstock (approx. 1 ¾” wide) and stamp the coral, seahorse and Nantucket images from By The Tide using Pacific Point Classic Ink.  

Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Pacific Point Classic Ink, stamp off onto scratch paper and stamp onto the tag.

Stamp the script image repeatedly using Real Red Classic Ink, create the top of the tag with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock (also using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch to create the top of the tag).

Stamp the coral image using Pacific Point onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, punch out the image using the 2 ½” Circle Punch and mount another 2 ½” Circle of Real Red cardstock behind the coral image and adhere this element onto the card front per the sketch.

Mount the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Real Red paper bow (created with the Bow Builder Punch) along with the retired silver Star Brad.

Stamp the lobster image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, color using an AquaPainter™ with Real Red Classic Ink pad and the Stampin’ Write Real Red marker and carefully “fussy-cut” out the image. 

Use the Big Shot™  to cut the anchor die cut from Silver Foil and add the Natural Linen Thread “rope”- adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals® and a Mini Glue Dot (under the bow).

De-static a piece of Pacific Point cardstock using the Embossing Buddy and stamp the sentiment from Wetlands with Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.

Trim the sentiment, create the banner points with the Hexagon Punch, mount onto a piece of Silver Foil, trim and create the banner points again using the Hexagon Punch and repeat the above steps once more with Real Red cardstock.

Mount the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® on the left hand side and regular adhesive flush with the tag on the right.

Add the lobster to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Fantastic, beautiful card! I love all the layers, colors, and that bow to top it all off!
