SUO Challenge and a Sneak Peak
Ok I’m still on a roll, posting just about every day with a new project for your enjoyment and mine. Today’s card was made to meet the criteria for the Stampin’ Up! Only challenge. All you had to do was use a shape, oval, square or round. I chose round.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Gray card. I stamped the image from the Mediterranean Moments stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured parts of the image using the Bermuda Bay, Old Olive and Basic Gray Watercolour Pencils (Oh My, you guys are going to love these) as well as a Blender Pen. . I cut the image using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I attached the image to a scalloped circle of Basic Gray card cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I attached the image to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “just sitting here thinking of you” from the Sitting Here stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Gray ink. I punched the ends using the Triple Banner Punch, attached it to Basic Gray card and snipped the ends to match. The banner has dimensionals under each end to attach it slightly over the image panel.
To decorate the inside I attached a narrow strip of Basic Gray card behind one long edge of Whisper White card embossed using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. The embossed panel is attached to Whisper White card.
When I received my Occasions Catalogue at Onstage Live earlier this year, I didn’t look twice at the Mediterranean Moments stamp set. However, after seeing all the beautiful samples shown on stage and also on the boards I was hooked. I am happy to report that I am not disappointed with my first effort. What do you think? I’d love to hear.
Bye for now,
