Happy New Year!! The Sky's the Limit :-)
Woohoo- it’s time for the new SUO138 “Into the New Year” Challenge!
Since I do not own any of the traditional New Year's "celebration" type stamps (at least not current ones), I decided to create a “sneak peek” card using some of the new items from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog as well as the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
I have also incorporated the Paper Craft Crew PCCCS174 Sketch Challenge in my design- my thoughts were that the plane could be spelling out the “Happy New Year”- lol!!
I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister Design Team member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site as well as the fantastic Design Team samples at the Paper Craft Crew site- wonderful inspiration from all!
Use the Big Shot™ with the new World Traveler Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock (inking the embossing folder with Sahara Sand Classic Ink before inserting the cardstock and embossing).
Trim the embossed panel and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Ink the plane image from the Limited Edition Sale-A-Bration (SAB) set, Sky is the Limit using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, color with Stampin’ Write Markers (I used Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake), add some distressing with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge, trim and mount onto Gold Foil cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, distress with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge, create the banner ends with the Banner Punch, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and punch the ends to match.
Add the Gold Foil Banner Punch pieces to the ends of the sentiment, adhere Gold Trim looped behind the sentiment and mount the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere a piece of the Going Places Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto Basic Black cardstock, add the embossed Basic Black pieces (with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, mount the embossed black strips onto Gold Foil scrap pieces, add the strips to the embossed Sahara Sand card front and mount the Going Places DSP panel.
Add the plane focal image with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
After I posted my first design (without the numbers to the SUO Challenges site), I decided to cut some numbers with the retired GoGo Boots Sizzlits™ Alphabet Die Set and added to the card front ...I think the numbers make it look more festive, don’t you?
