Woohoo! Today I am Guest Designing for the
love participating with the Retro Rubber Blog Challenge since you are required to
use a stamp/stamp set that is at least one year old! This encourages me to use
my older/ retired stamps and I enjoy using some of my stash of paper and embellishments as
For this card, I chose the diagonal column, right to left (Nautical-Designer Paper-Blue) and I decided to pull out the 2015 Artistic Outpost Sounds of the Sea stamp along with the Divinity Designs LLC stamp set, Scripture Collection 9 and paired it with the Graphic 45 By The Sea designer paper, older washi tape and a nautical charm!
I enjoy participating with online challenges and will be playing along with the Simon Says Monday “Emboss It” Challenge (the main image and sentiment are both heat embossed) and the Word Art Wednesday #561-#562 Anything Goes Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Retro Rubber Blog Challenge site yet or the other challenge galleries, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful ideas and projects by all!
To create this card:
Ink the Sound of theSea image with Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, color with water-based markers and distress oxide ink (see colors below).
Trim the panel, mount onto tangerine cardstock, trim again and mount onto navy cardstock.
Repeat the same process for the embossing of the verse sentiment from Scripture Collection 9, ink the Sound of the Sea stamp with the tangerine marker (I inked mainly the seashells and the map area) and stamp over the sentiment. Sponge Antique Distress Oxide Ink over the sentiment to “age” the paper. Die cut and layer onto two additional die cuts (one from tangerine cardstock and the other from navy, split both in the center and layer behind the sentiment).
Trim and distress the two different patterns from the By The Sea Graphic 45 paper and mount onto a piece of navy cardstock.
Layer the crochet ivory lace, striped grosgrain ribbon and stitched ribbon over the rough cut edge, wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.
Add the strips of washi tape to the lower right hand area and mount the entire panel onto a white card base.
Mount the main image panel and sentiment with dimensional foam/
Use an antique pin to add the nautical charm to finish off the card.
