I used the Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Nights and Places You’ll Go stamp sets to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop. We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I created for it.
Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:
I started by adhering a panel from the Moroccan DSP to the front of an Early Espresso card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I use liquid glue to adhere the larger panels so that I’ve got some wiggle time to get everything lined up along the edges.
I stamped the three lantern images from the Moroccan Nights stamp set individually on a panel of Early Espresso card stock and heat embossing each image with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder so that I didn’t smudge the images next to it. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure that the images were placed exactly where I wanted them.
I stamped the border image from the Moroccan Nights stamp set in Early Espresso ink twice across the Early Espresso card stock panel (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement). I adhered the panel to a panel of Delightful Dijon card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Places You’ll Go photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Moroccan Nights DSP. I punched both ends of the DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and then looped and adhered a strand of Copper Metallic Thread with a Glue Dot to the back. I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.
I adhered a strip of the Moroccan DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock inside the card.
