Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #514

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #514

Hello friends! I decided to go a little rogue when making my design team card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #514.

Supplies used:

I decided to use the super cute Lawn Fawn's Skyler Remix patterned paper as the background circular die cut (instead of an oval because I can't find my oval die cuts right now in my messy craft space) as winter in Portland is more rainy than snowy. It was die cut with one of the mid-sized die from Picket Fence Studios' Misshapen Stitched Circle die set. I added Wow! clear embossing ink onto the frame die cut by the die cut and then heat embossed the frame with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. I then set the patterned paper circular die cut aside.

The snowpeople from Simon Says Stamp's Warmest Wishes stamp set were stamped on watercolor paper with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. They were colored with a variety of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the scarves and hats were made sparkly with my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I also stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set in the same manner--with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and heat embossed it with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. The snowpeople and sentiment were die cut with their corresponding dies. I also die cut a piece of Stampin' Up!'s Waves of the Ocean 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper with the same sentiment die.

Next, I turned to the background panel.  I die cut a piece of Tessler Crafts' NACRE Circle paper with Reverse Confetti's Cross Tiles Panel Confetti Cuts (die). I used my paper trimmer to cut a piece of dark blue patterned paper from Stampin' Up!'s Waves of the Ocean 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper pack the same size as the die cut Tessler Craft paper. The two panels were glued together.

The circular die cut was glued onto the card panel with a little help to keep the frame and inner circle together by gluing a piece of scrap piece of cardstock behind them to help them stay together. I then glued the two snow people on the right side of the circular die cut. The blue piece of patterned paper that I had previously die cut with the sentiment die cut was glued behind the sentiment so that we could see the blue die cut paper peeked out of the top of the stamped sentiment die cut. The sentiment was then glued to the bottom right corner of the panel. Sequins from Catherine Pooler's Portland sequin mix was glued onto the panel. To finish the card, I glued the panels onto the A2-sized card base.

We hope you are able to join us this week at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and thanks for reading!
