I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called The Open Sea, Hardwood and Watercolor Wings to create my card for The Paper Players theme challenge this week. The challenge is to create a clean and simple project featuring frames…I may have gotten a little carried away on the clean and simple part. 🙂
Be sure to stop by The Paper Players blog to check out the awesome projects created by the other Design Team Members. And be sure to play along too! 🙂 Here is the theme for PP254:
The layout for my card was inspired by Fab Friday 68.
I started by stamping the image from the Hardwood stamp in Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink on a panel of Soft Sky card stock. I used my heat tool to speed up the drying time, but you can let it air dry too. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL, then to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the image of the ship from The Open Sea stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Soft Sky card stock. I used my Blender Pen to “color” a little with the Soft Suede ink that had been stamped on the sails. Then I used my Blender Pen to add a tiny bit of Cherry Cobbler ink to the little flag on the boat. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the Hardwood image again in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock, then cut it into two 1/2″ x 2-7/8″ and two 1/2″ x 3-3/8″ strips. I cut the ends of two of the strips at an angle, stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Wings stamp set in Soft Suede ink on one of the longer strips, then adhered the four strips together to create the frame. I adhered the frame over the boat image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the compass image from The Open Sea stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Soft Sky card stock and I colored over the center arrows with my Blender Pen. I stamped the compass image again in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Soft Suede card stock, then punched the Soft Sky image out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and cut the Soft Suede image out with a Circles Collection Framelits die. I adhered the two circles together and to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the anchor image from The Open Sea stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Soft Sky card stock panel, adhered it to a Soft Suede card stock panel, then to the inside of the card.
