 It's TGIF everyone and one of the good things about every other Friday is that we get to play a brand new As You See It Challenge. This week it's a Recipe for a Happy Birthday and here is the challenge banner as cooked up by fellow Design Team member Joanne!

challenge #251

This week I've been playing with the Layering Diorama Dies, so I thought I'd continue using them for this challenge....that, and all my Design Team Members aced me on the gorgeous florals this time, so I did a 180 degees and designed a masculine birthday card.

  • This time I only had 3 layers and the bottom was a Basic White panel that I blended with ink. I used a taped off horizon line to get it really straight and a piece of Post It Note die cut in a circle to mask where the setting sun should be, then sponged both the ocean and the sky before I realized that I was going to need some patterned paper somewhere on the card. So I had to replace my beautifully blended ocean with some Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. The greens blended with gold veins really actually works well for the ocean as the gold works as the reflected sunlight!
  • The blended sky is a mix of Bumble Bee, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Night of Navy, applied with Blending Brushes. The sun, after the mask is removed, was filled in with a bit of Daffodil Delight.
  • I used Night of Navy and Sahara Sand as the layers die cut with the Layering Diorama dies. I added die cuts of seaweed on the Sahara Sand using the Smooth Sailing dies and more Expressions in Ink DSP.
  • On the Night of Navy I added a Lighthouse, stamped in Night of Navy then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder to fulfill the Heat Embossing element of the challenge. The sailboat on the back layer is also heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder along with the sentiment from Timeless Tropical.

  • The die cuts are the lighthouse, the sailboat, the sentiment label, the seaweed and the ship's wheel. The lighthouse and sailboat were also coloured in using Light Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends, Gray Granite Stampin' Blends and So Saffron Stampin' Blends.
  • The ribbon or twine is a sailor's knot at the bottom, tied using White Baker's Twine and Linen Thread.
I hope you'll play along with us!
