Craft Roulette #63
Craft Roulette #63
Craft Roulette is a weekly live Youtube crafting event! Usually Mary and a guest crafter are given 4 randomly selected parameters to use when making a card, but this week we were treated to watching 3 guest crafters. Episode 63's parameters were:
Project: 6 inch sketch card
Colors: Cool colors
Element: Car or truck
This card features a stamp set from Hero Arts that I bought from Collage (my local craft store many years ago) that features iconic images and phrases that are Portland-specific including this food truck. It was the only car or truck stamp in my collection, so I went with it!
Here is the card that meets the parameters:
This card is 6x6, and was an attempt to use one of the two sketches that Mary gave as options. I decided that since I was having to go retro for the stamp that I would lean into it and use a retro die for the accent paper and so pulled out my Sizzix Honeycomb Frameworks Border die. I die cut the hexagon frame 3 times-once in navy blue paper, and twice with some paper that I had covered with washi tape in my stash. I glued the three die cuts together with liquid glue and set aside to dry. Next I was on to the second part of the sketch (which looked like a capital-T). I decided to lean into the Portland motif and pulled out a few different patterned papers: a brown paper with darker brown bicycles and blue paper with umbrellas (which forms the frame around the food truck-featured paper). I cut both of the patterned paper using some of the rectangles from the Gina K Master Layouts 2 die set.
Then I was onto the main image-the food truck and envelopes, all in cool colors. First, I cut out a piece of card stock using the smallest rectangle die from the Master Layouts 2 die set. Next, I stamped the food truck from the Hero Arts stamp set in VersaFine Claire Ink in Morning Mist and then embossing with Ranger's Holographic Embossing Powder on a piece of white card stock. I then went on to pull an envelope out of another older stamp set. I decided to mask and stamp the envelope several times running the length of the card stock. These were also heat embossed with the same Holographic powder. I then went back with a few of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in cool colors (as well as light gray and black for the tires) to color both the food truck and the envelopes. The whole panel was attached to the other patterned papers with some foam tape.
To finish up the card, I added some Catherine Pooler Sequins in Cincinnati.
