Sunny Challenge 87/13

September 1, 2013

As today is Father’s Day (Happy Father’s Day to you all), I decided to use the current Sunny Challenge set by Gwen to create a card and packaging for my Dad.  For the challenge all we have to do is use Framelits.

015I love all that paper that Stampin’ Up! uses to pack our orders and keep it to use on my projects.  I tore off two of the perforated sections and stamped all over using the images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Expresso ink.  Then I created a bag to hold my Dad’s gift.   I inked the image from the Chalk Talk stamp set first using Versamark ink and then Early Expresso ink and stamped onto Soft Suede card before embossing with Clear Embossing Powder.  I cut the image using the matching Chalk Talk Framelit.  I stamped the 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon with another image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Early Expresso ink.  I tied the cotton around the gift bag and attached the stamped tag.

My matching card is inspired by one from the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Magazine – Impressions.  I wanted my card to match the gift bag, so I took another piece of packing paper and scrunched it up.  I wanted to give it a grungy look, so I attached it to a piece of card using an Anywhere Glue Stick, making sure to leave some of the creases in.  I attached this piece to scored and folded Soft Suede Card. 019  I cut a “V” shape in the bottom of a piece of Soft Suede Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Colour Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks, attached a strip of Champagne Glimmer Paper behind the left hand side and then to the card front.  I created a tag as before and attached it to the right hand side of the card front.  I stamped another piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon and tied a knot before attaching it to the card front using Glue Dots.

I wanted the same look inside the card, so again I attached a piece of packing paper to card, this time, making sure to keep it nice and smooth so I could write on it.  I stamped the tag image as before, embossed it and cut it using the matching Chalk Talk Framelit.  I stamped “Happy Father’s Day” from the Delightful Dozen stamp set onto Very Vanilla card.  I used my Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker to colour in the word “Father’s”, punched the greeting using the Extra Large Oval Punch and sponged the edges using Early Expresso ink.  The greeting is attached over the tag using Glue Dots.

020Using the packing paper for both the packaging and the card really creates a unified look don’t  you think?

Want some more inspiration?  Then pop on over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Once you have your card, scrap page or 3d item created be sure to add it to Mr. Linky.  We love seeing your creations.

Bye for now, Kris.
