This is one of my favourite cards that I made at the Creative Escape Weekend. The card was inspired by a Valentine card made by my upline, who was originally inspired by Erica Cerwin. I just checked out her blog and it is awesome! I'm definitely going to subscribe! This card features a splatter design made from stamping and embossing with a shape die cut in the middle of it. I thought it might fit for The Paper Player's Tic Tac Toe Challenge, but it is missing polka dots or sequins, so I shall have to come up with something different for that challenge.
- This card is super fun to make. After adding the Pistachio Pudding layer to the Island Indigo card base, I took the upper Whisper White panel and stamped images from Gorgeous Grunge in Island Indigo and Pistachio Pudding and embossed some images in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. I concentrated it in the middle but spread some images toward the outside edges. When I was done, it honestly looked like a hot mess!
- I then took one of the Ovals Collection Framelits and die cut the oval frame, centered except a little closer to the top than the bottom. That left the cool spattered design around the outside of the frame that looked much better than before die cutting!
- On a separate, smaller piece of Whisper White, I stamped the coral in Pistachio Pudding and embossed the seahorse image from By The Tide in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the starfish image from By the Seashore in Island Indigo and hand cut it.
- I mounted the frame using Dimensionals, but before removing the covers from the dimensionals, I positioned the smaller piece with the coral underneath and glued it down. I repositioned and added the oval frame piece. The sentiment is from And Many More and I punched it with the Word Window Punch, and added another punched from Island Indigo and cut in half to frame it.
This is another design we will be doing at my Technique Night classes tonight and tomorrow night. Newcomers are always welcome. Check out my Classes page for more details and links to register.
