Hi there stamping friend! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend; ours is decidedly cold & wet, which means it’s good to be indoors doing some stamping 🙂
I created a card for the latest Watercooler Challenge – WWC47 this one is a gorgeous colour challenge by the talented Marsha Reed:
I just love blues and greys together, and it gave me an idea to use a new stamp set and paper that you will be able to get in January!
Actually, the stamp set Sky Is The Limit can only be earned as a FREE item during Sale-A-Bration. I just love the old fashioned biplane, and the clouds! The script font is just lovely, too.
I started with a piece of Watercolour Paper, and used my Aqua Painter and Pacific Point ink to paint a sky background. After it was dry, I stamped the clouds in Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. I then stamped the plane in Basic Gray Archival Ink. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock in Pacific Point ink; I then used the Banner Triple Punch for the ends on it as well as a layer of Pacific Point cardstock. I wrapped the Silver Cording Trim 3 times around the top of the card, before layering this panel onto a piece of Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper – also FREE during Sale-A-Bration. This paper is gorgeous; one side is a fabulous marbled effect in 6 different colours. The card base is of Pacific Point cardstock.
If you like this stamp set and DSP, you’ll have to earn them quick – this year, some SAB products are only available from January 5th – February 15th, then other SAB products will be introduced! So you won’t have that ‘oh, I already earned it all’ feeling – you’ll have more choices after the first 1 1/2 months!
I hope you’ll join in this Watercooler Challenge – head over & check out the other designs for inspiration, then post your own creation! It’s always fun, and challenges are a great way to get your creative juices flowing.
If you are in the area, and would like to receive a copy of the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochures, just leave me a message & I’ll take care of it. You can order the products used to make this card (with the exception of the SAB products) by clicking on the pictures below, & you’ll be taken directly to my online store.
Until next time – happy stamping!
