SUO172 In The Meadow Sympathy
It’s time for the #172 “Sympathy and Caring” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
Unfortunately I never seem to have enough sympathy cards on hand so I decided to create one for my stash using In the Meadow and Rose Wonder.
The retired list for Stampin’ Up! was just released and In The Meadow will be retiring- I love this set with the images of the deer, mountains and trees. Perfect for so many types of cards so if you do not have this set yet, now would be the time to order before it retires:-)
I love to play along with online challenges so I incorporated the Splitcoaststampers’ SC638 Sketch Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday#276-277 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge sites, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Heat emboss the sentiment from Rose Wonder using Stampin’ Emboss White Embossing Powder , trim and use the retired Hexagon Punch to create the flag points (or by hand).
2). Ink and stamp the deer image from In The Meadow using Stampin’ Archival Basic Black ink, set the ink with the heat tool and watercolor using the AquaPainter™ along with ink from Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Old Olive and Pool Party Classic Ink Pads and Stampin’ Write Markers.
3). Die cut the image with the Stitched Framelits™, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
4). Cut a piece of the patterned paper from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack using the Layering Squares Framelits™ , mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim close to the edge.
5). Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and mount the entire panel onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
6). Add a strip of Old Olive and Basic Black cardstock for the vertical panels.
7). Add the layered DSP panel along with leaves die cut from Old Olive cardstock using the leaf die from the Flourish Thinlits™, mount the deer image and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals® .
8). Add white highlights to the fawn image using the White Gel Pen.
