It is time to show you what I created for my INQUE SPOT STUDIO’s WEEKEND CHALLENGE and SUNDAY SKETCH. I combined the two.
I aim to keep you stamping with these challenges. I hope you had a chance to play along. The challenges are always posted to my Facebook Business Page and my Instagram account.
Here is the result:
WEEKEND CHALLENGE – Use a Tool. This week it is the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. If you do not have the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, you can substitute your Paper Trimmer by employing the Scoring Blade.
- I cut a Very Vanilla cardstock panel (4⅛” x 5⅜”). I tucked the panel up into the corner of the Scoring Board and added a double embossed line on each edge. This is easy to do and creates a nice frame.
- Stepping it up a little. I used the retired Simply Scored Diagonal Plate to create the embossing on the Very Vanilla cardstock side panel (1½” x 4⅜”). I tried it and with some patience this, too, can be created with the Scoring Board and the Paper Trimmer. However, you can skip all that and choose to use a textured embossing folder instead.
SUNDAY SKETCH – Stamp Set: Hand-Penned Petals and Penned Flowers Dies
- Using the Stamparatus Positioning Tool, one of the Floral images was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to a piece of the free SAB selection Be Dazzling Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used the Stamparatus because I wanted to get a really dark black image. If you have a inky ink pad, you could just stamp image straight to paper.
- The Be Dazzling Designer Series Paper can be colored. Here I colored the Floral image with a variety of Stampin’ Blends: Stem – Mossy Meadow, Leaves – Granny Apple Green, Small Flower – Polished Pink and Large Flower – Rich Razzleberry. Colored Glitter? Who could ask for anything more!
- The Floral image was then die-cut with the coordinating die. The Floral image could also have been fussy cut.
- For the cross strip, I chose to use a scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock (3⅜” x ¼”).
- The sentiment, Anything is possible, was stamped into the lower right corner with Old Olive ink. My Old Olive is very dark and almost looks like Mossy Meadow.
- Everything was assembled and adhered to Very Vanilla card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to march the sketch with the Floral image popped up with Dimensionals.
A pretty bedazzled card for someone special.
