I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called You’re Sublime to create my card for The Paper Players theme challenge this week.
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 PP258:
The colors for my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #218.
I started by cutting a panel of Pool Party card stock with the Striped Scallop Thinlits die. I adhered the die cut to a Lost Lagoon card stock panel with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (available Sept 1), then adhered the layered panel to a Tangerine Tango card stock panel with SNAIL.
I adhered the layered panel to a Pool Party card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then punched a strip of Tangerine Tango DSP from the Brights DSP Stack with the Banner Punch and adhered it over the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the image from the You’re Sublime stamp set in Basic Black Archival In (available Sept 1) on panels of Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stock. I punched the Pool Party image out with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. I punched another 2-1/2″ Circle from Lost Lagoon card stock and ripped it in half. I used my White Stampin’ Chalk and colored in the ripped edge on the card stock, then adhered it over the Pool Party circle. I snipped around the crab image on the Tangerine Tango panel and around the eyes on the Whisper White panel and adhered the snipped images to the Pool Party circle with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
I adhered the Pool Party circle to a circle that I’d cut from Tangerine Tango card stock with a Circles Collection Framelits die cut with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a Gold Basic Metal Button, tied a bow and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I adhered a strip of the Tangerine Tango DSP to a Whisper White panel, then adhered the Whisper White panel to a Tangerine Tango card stock panel inside the card.
