Keep Climbing!

Hi Again Friends!

This card is another design for the Splitcoaststampers’ April 2016 Cards for A Cause (see here for more details) using the SC587 Sketch Challenge, the CC558 Color Challenge and the Inkspirational #106 Rock Challenge.

I realized as I reviewed this card to create the blog post that I made an error on the colors and used Soft Suede versus Tip Top Taupe- oops!  I do believe this would look better if I had been more careful and used the Tip Top Taupe...maybe I will create another one at a later date with the correct colors :-)

I hope you will take the time to visit the above linked sites- so much inspiration!

To create this card:

Ink the all of the images from Keep Climbing (ODBD) with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and Chalkboard Fan background stamp (ODBD) with Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink- stamp all onto Whisper White cardstock.

Use Stampin’ Write Markers to color the mountain and trees, create a moon mask as well as a cloud mask and sponge Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink onto the sky area along with the sentiment panel.

Die cut with stitched dies, mount onto Soft Suede cardstock and add Clear Wink of Stella®  to the mountain.

Add the 5/8” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon strip to the die cut Watermelon Wonder strip.  

Mount onto the layered embossed Whisper White background panel and adhere to the Watermelon Wonder card base.

Use a Square Punch to create the small photo corners and add Copper Brads to each corner.

Finish off the card by layering the panels and adding the 5/8” Chocolate Chip Satin Triple Ribbon Bow.

Stamp Sets: Keep Climbing, Chalkboard Fan Background (Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Watermelon Wonder; Stampin’ Write Markers- Chocolate Chip, Tip Top Taupe, Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Watermelon Wonder

Accessories: Big Shot™, MFT Stitched Square and Rectangle STAX Dies, MFT Stitched Horizontal Strip Die, retired Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Dauber,  1 ¼” Circle Punch, 1 ⅜” Square Punch, Copper Brads,  5/8” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!
