SIP Challenge 51 – Sunsets!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 51 – Sunsets!

What a beautiful day it was here yesterday! The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze down by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I got a lot accomplished too, love it when that happens! Renee had her Christmas Card Club and I finished up some preparations for Thursday’s Stamping 101 Class! I spoke to Andrea and Michael, always a pleasure! My lunch was salad again, I’m keeping up with my healthy eating so I can loose this lovely donut that has appeared around my waist! Gotta get bikini ready! LOL! Today I’ll be doing a little research to see what else I want to bring into the store, one of my favorite things to do!

The card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! We have a beautiful inspiration picture…

SIP Challenge 51 - Sunsets 800

Oh how I would like to be on the pier! The base for my card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut out two pieces of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card with the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts. On one of them I used the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Border Lawn Cuts. I can’t stop making the Distress Ink backgrounds and today I used Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch for the ocean and Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple for the sky. A little flick of water and some blotting before I adhered the background with Tombo Extreme and the ocean with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to the card. My images are from the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You Photopolymer Stamp Set and they are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Copics to color them in and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Foam Tape and E-Z Runner to adhere them to the card. For the hello I inked up another piece of Watercolor Card with Candied Apple Distress Ink and then used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello Lawn Cut to cut it out. The Waving is from the same stamp set and is stamped in Onyx Black. I used Multi-Matte Medium To adhered the hello and some Pretty Pink Posh Sunshine Glow, Blue Lagoon and Sparkling Clear Sequins to the card. A little brush of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen one the mermaid and the card is finished! I really do love the way the Ink Blended backgrounds look, especially in the bright colors! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Inspiration Challenge!

  2. Hi Justin!

    I’m going to tell you a secret SHHHHHH! I know you put the Wink of Stella on the mermaid just for me, I just know it! LOL

    I too love the blended backgrounds and your color combo for this one really pops it out. Bright colors, Wink of Stella, Cute Mermaid and Sequins. This card couldn’t be any brighter, better, more colorful or more welcome on a dreary, rainy Tuesday! Thanks for “brightening” up my Tuesday.

    You have yourself a Tantalizing Tuesday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, you are absolutely right! Don’t laugh, I did think of you when I added the Wink!
      The Ink Blended backgrounds are my favorite! So much fun to make and I’m loving the nice bright skies over the blue! Glad that I could brighten up your day!
      Love and hugs to you!! XOXO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much Linda! I like the bright sky as opposed to blue! Maybe we can meet on the pier one day! πŸ™‚
