He’s All That – Thank You

Working on a number of pending deadlines…

Somewhere been day and night, we have a sunset:  Time Out Challenge (#214)

and along with the sun we have a beach and birds: Just Add Ink Challenge (#605) and Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#163).

Bringing it all together, the Facebook Stampin’ Through the Catalog stamp set choice for today, May 31stHe’s All That and last week’s Facebook Case-ing Tuesday Sketch Challenge (#357) flipped to the horizontal position.

Here is the result combining several stamp sets to create the beach scene:

Jolanda Johnstone – The Inque Spot Studio


  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Three Split Panels: (1¾” x 4”), (1⅝” x 4”) and (1¾” x 4”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • Each Panel was stamped separately, but I could have done them as one and then cut them apart.
  • Left Panel:
    • The VW Bus image from the He’s All That stamp set was stamped with Early Espresso Ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig Positioning Tool and the Stampin’ Write Marker to highlight just the Vehicle.
    • A mask was also stamped and used to cover the Vehicle.
    • The Sand, Water and Sky images from the Oceanfront stamp set were then stamped using Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and Pale Papaya inks.
    • The mask was removed, and the vehicle was colored with Stampin’ BlendsSurfboard – Daffodil Delight, Vehicle – Calypso Coral, Windows – Smoky Slate, and Wheels – Early Espresso.
  • Center Panel:
    • The sentiments, To the Man who does Everything, from the He’s All That stamp set and Thank You, from the Hello Beautiful stamp set were stamped with Early Espresso ink.
    • The Sand, Water and Sky were then added as described above.
  • Right Panel:
    • The Pelican image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.
    • A mask was also stamped and used to cover the Pelican
    • The Sand, Water and Sky were then added as previously described.
    • Using the small Circle stamp from Watercolor Shapes stamp set and Crushed Curry ink, the Sun was added to the horizon.
    • The mask was removed, and the Pelican image was colored with Stampin’ BlendsPelican Eye Area – Early Espresso, Pelican Feathers – Smoky Slate, Pelican Beak – Daffodil Delight, Pilings – Crumb Cake, and Rope – Soft Suede
    • The Grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set was added with Soft Suede ink to ground the Pilings.
    • The Seagulls image from the retired Sailing Home stamp set was added with Early Espresso ink.

The three panels were adhered to the card base to match the flipped sketch.  Just Stamps, Ink and Paper…#simplestamping…with a twist using the Masking Technique.

Never too late to use a sketch challenge to support your ideas.
