Retiring Hello
My favorite retiring products card

In The Meadow

stampin up, Stampin' Up! In The Meadow #140754, Wood Textures DSP #144177,  designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to, Joyce Whitman

This is one of the cards that I made for my display for OnStage back in April.  I was given the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and I added the In The Meadow stamp set.  This was such a fun card to make as I used the masking technique.  

This card is another one where I used old and new products together. The stamp set, In The Meadow, is going to retire at the end of them month, but the designer series paper will be in the new annual catalog.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 5 3/4"

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I had mentioned earlier that I had used the masking technique on this card.  With the masking technique you cover up the section you don't want ink on.  On this card I used the 1 inch circle punch and punched out a piece of post it note.  You will want to make sure you punch out the section that has the sticky on it.  This will help keep the paper in place.  

I took the piece that I had punched out the circle out of and laid it down on my small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock where I wanted the sun to go.  I then sponged inside of the circle with So Saffron and very light with the Calypso Coral inks.  I just went on the edge of the circle with the Calypso Coral and did not apply very much pressure.  I wanted it to be very light.  

I took that off and put on the circle that I had punched out and stuck it on top of the sun.  I then sponged around the sun and other places on the paper with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.  I removed the circle when I was finished and stamped my images with our Basic Black Archival ink.  To highlight areas of the mountains and trees I used our Chalk Marker.  

I am in love with the new Wood Textures DSP and I think you will be too.  There are so many different colors for white washed to real dark. There is also a couple of pieces like the one I used on the above card.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
