SC 039/12…

The challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is all about colour & boy is it bright.  Along with the sketch we had to use the colours of Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede & a Neutral, ie Very Vanilla or Whisper White.

I had a hard time both with the colours & the sketch, until I was about to stamp my image & it dawned on me to rotate it.  Problem solved.  It come together really quickly then.

I punched the borders of both ends of Tempting Turquoise & Melon Mambo using the Eyelet Edge Border Punch & adhered the Melon Mambo to Tempting Turquoise with Snail Adhesive.

Close Up…

I inked my sentiment using the Happy Birthday part with my SU! Marker – Tempting Turquoise & stamped direct onto the same piece of Whisper White Cardstock which I had stamped the car.  The piece was then adhered to the Melon Mambo piece using Snail Ahesive, before running the whole lot through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots, adhering to the large piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Glue & finally to the Base Card – Soft Suede with Snail Adhesive.

I applied a little of Dazzling Diamonds over the Soft Suede Ink with my 2-Way Glue Pen.  Lastly the cut out car was adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

It is a set probably aimed at boys rather than girls, but who says girls can’t like cars.  In fact, I know quiet a few girls who would love this card!

Need for Speed…


Envelope & Inside Card….

I finally purchased this great stamp set.  I have been after it for what seems like forever! 

The card today was the one we did at the Community Centre.  Unfortunately I couldn’t be there as I have a family wedding this weekend & it is the first time in about 15 years that my brothers & sister have all been together.

After deciding how I wanted to make my card, it sort of come together fairly quickly. 

Measurements –
Base Card – So Saffron – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21.5cm – Score in the middle & fold in half
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/8″ x 3″ or 7.5cm x 13cm – You may have to adjust this after adhering to the Very Vanilla
Layer 3 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ or 14cm x 2.5cm
Layer 4 – DSP – 5 3/8″ x 1 1/8″ or 13.5cm x 2cm
Layer 5 – Not Quiet Navy – 5 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ or 14cm x 2.5cm
Layer 6 – Cherry Cobbler – 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 6.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 7 – Very Vanilla – 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″  or 6cm x 6cm

I cut the DSP into 3/4″ strips & adhered them to the Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I left about 1/8″ of Very Vanilla showing between the DSP strips & the top & side edges of the Very Vanilla.

I adhered the long strip of DSP to the piece of Cherry Cobbler, leaving a narrow edge aound the whole lot.  This was then adhered to the piece of Not Quyiet Navy which had been punched along one long side with the Eyelet Border Punch.

I adhered this piece to the bottom part of the Very Vanilla Cardstock with the DSP on it.  Once this was adhered, it covered the bottom part of the Very Vanilla.

I stamped the image onto the piece of Very Vanilla square in So Saffron Ink.  The bike was stamped onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Not Quiet Navy Ink & cut out.

I adhered the piece of Very Vanilla stamped image to the piece of Cherry Cobbler & adhered the bike over the top with Snail Adhesive.  The whole piece was adhered to the Base Card with SU! Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock in Not Quiet Navy, punched with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  This was then adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.
