I combined the Time of Year and Love & Affection stamp sets to create a card for The Paper Players Clean and Simple Challenge this week.
The challenge this week is to create a CAS card with the sentiment as the focal point. I hope you’ll check out all of the other designs at PP#332.
I started with a panel of Cucumber Crush as my base. When I paired it with Night of Navy, I felt like I needed to do something to the Night of Navy besides just creating a frame with Copper Foil paper. So, I pulled out my Floral Affections Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and dry embossed the Night of Navy layer. The folder is smaller than most Embossing Folders so I was able to move the panel and emboss different sections . I actually ran it through 4 different times, embossing the corners and some of the middle.
Thinking of You is the main sentiment in the Time of Year Host stamp set, and I stamped it in Versa Mark ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then, I sprinkled it with Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. Once dry, it was cut out with the largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. The frame is the largest scalloped square from that same set of framelits. I chose the small flower image from Love & Affection and stamped a panel of Watermelon Wonder with more Versa Mark ink, then Copper Emboss Powder. The flower was then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.
For the center strip, I chose the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP and used more Copper Foil for a frame for it. Once all the parts were completed, I began adhering them from the bottom up. The Night of Navy panel was adhered to the Foil with glue, then adhered to the card base with Dimensionals. The center strip was adhered with glue, then the sentiment panel popped on with Dimensionals. I added the flower last with a small Dimensional.
The inside of my card is simple, too
I used the sentiment from Love & Affection and stamped it in Versa Mark, then heat embossed it with Copper Emboss Powder.
A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my Time of Year and Love & Affection card will be at the end of my post.
