SOSS Ombre Challenge – Guest Designer

I’m thrilled to be a guest designer for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers latest Challenge #130 – Ombre. How many Ombre elements can I fit on one card? At least four as it turns out.

Images

  • Stamped Altenew Layered Cupcake images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. As there are 2-3 layers for each part of the image I used Altenew Green Meadows, Cherry Blossom and Coffee Break mini ink cubes – Ombre element 1.
  • Diecut with matching die.

Other items

  • Ink blend the three lightest Cherry Blossom inks over three pieces of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock (super easy to blend on) – Ombre element 2.
  • Using Concord & 9th Bags and Tags die set, diecut edge of each of the pieces of cardstock.
  • Cut down to size for your card base.

Sentiment

  • Stamp out the banner and sentiment using Concord & 9th Here’s the Scoop stamp set.
  • The pole for the banners is the straw stamp in the same set and watercoloured using the same Altenew Inks listed in Image section. Perfect to add Ombre element – Ombre element 3.

Background

  • Ink blend Distress Oxide Ink Tea Dye over Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.
  • Using the circle stamps in the Layered Cupcake stamp set randomly stamp over background in the Coffee Break ink cube colours to create an ombre look – Ombre element 4.

FINISHING

  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere pink tablecloth cardstock in layers with foam tape.
  • Adhere cupcakes and banners with foam tape to add dimension (see closeup above).
  • Using darkest of the pink inks ink blend around the bottom edge of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Musical twist challenge

I’m really enjoying entering more card challenges this year. This card is for the current AAA Cards Case Game #134.

Images

  • Stamped Penny Black Jazzy Cats image onto paper appropriate to use with coloured pencils with Versafine Nocturne ink.
  • Colour with Prismacolor coloured pencils. Cat – 945 Sienna Brown, 997 Beige, 944, Terra Cotta, 937 Tuscan Red, 928 Blush Pink, 1014 Deco Pink. Cello – 941 Light Umber, 946 Dark Brown, 947 Dark Umber, Black.
  • Fussy cut by hand.

Tip 1: When fussy cutting image by hand you can be left with the white core of the cardstock showing around the edge. Run a black marker around the outside edge of the image to hide the white. This can hide some not so perfect cutting as well.

Other items

  • Using Lawn Fawn Little Music Notes die set, diecut the notes out of glitter cardstock.
  • Diecut the music paper lines out of foiled cardstock.
  • Adhere the notes to the music lines with liquid glue

Sentiment

  • Place the cardbase (kraft cardstock) in a Mini Misti.
  • Temporarily place the image and die cuts on the cardbase.
  • Position the Uniquely Creative Block Outline sentiment where you wish to stamp it and pick up with the misti door (see Tip 2 below)
  • Remove image and die cuts and stamp with Versafine Nocturne ink.
  • Coloured with Prismacolor coloured pencils – 905 Aquamarine, 1027 Peacock Blue.

Tip 2: The sentiment was orignally “You Totally Rock” but this was too long for what I wanted so I cut it apart and justs used the “You Rock”. Don’t panic too much doing this…you can still use the entire original sentiment another time – the cut ends will match up.

Background

  • When I fussy cut the cat image I cut off the whiskers as they would have been fiddly to cut around. To add them back into the image I just restamped the cat onto the background kraft cardstock and will adhere cutout image over the top.

Finishing

  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere music notes to cardbase using liquid glue.
  • Adhere cat over prestamped image with dimensional foam.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
