I have a quick and easy-peasie masculine card for you today, just in time for Father's Day......... dressed up with a smattering of feminine touches to
OK, I do get carried away with memories at times - so let's get on with the real reason for this post. WHIMSY "TRY-IT TUESDAY #15!!!
The base card uses a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock, scored in half at 5 1/2". The secret to the edge of this card is finding a border punch that punches a full border, punching from one side. (this one is the fancy lace border from SU) Leaving a center panel (1 3/4" in this case) to be decorated with a DP (or not).
Now for the image. I stamped the ship once onto a piece of mottled blue DP (from stash) and twice onto white cardstock. Working from the background of the sails, pieces were cut from the stamped white images and glued over the DP image for a 3D look. The paper pieced image was cut into a 3" circle and matted with a slightly larger die cut and sponged with TH Tea Dye Distress Ink. Two copic markers (BV13, BV17) were used to darken the areas of the inside area of the ship and the water. A Sukura White Pen was used to give the illusion of whitecaps on the water. Really easy-peasie would be to stamp the image onto the white cardstock and sponge a sky / water background. (I always do things the hard way).
This Stamp Set, (3 images and 3 sentiments) is such a mystery, I don't even know it's name!!
Do check into the The Whimsy Stamps site to see all the goodies and the Whimsy Blog to see all the delicious-ness the DT creates.
Materials used: Mysterious New Whimsy Release, Memento tuxedo black, TH Tea Dye Distress ink, 1/2 sheet of Card stock, 1/4 sheet of card stock, pieces of White Cardstock (copic) and DP, Copic markers: BV13, BV 17, Ribbon and flat back pearls (from stash). Double border punch,
The cutouts on the front of the card limited the sentiment size so it wouldn't peek through. A die cut similar to the front image was cut rom contrasting cardstock, then a sponged sentiment was 3D taped to the die.
A wide bow to the bottom of the card and flat back pearls to the punched border were added for
Hope this has given you some inspiration to "stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it along to brighten someone's day".
Next week, I will attempt to show you a different card fold from one very large circle. See you then!
