F un summertime card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Tempting Turquoise Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" from Pacific Point Cardstock
- 3" x 4-1/4" from Tempting Turquoise Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" of the whitewashed wood design from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack
- 1" x 3-1/2" from Tempting Turquoise Cardstock
- 2 scraps of Whisper White Cardstock at least 1" square
Mount the Marbled background stamp on Block F. Leave the stamp rubber side up on your work surface. Open the Pacific Point Ink Pad and pounce it all over the stamp to get the stamp inked up. Place the 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Tempting Turquoise onto the inked up stamp so that the swirls will mostly run horizontally across the long direction on the cardstock. Fold your Grid Paper up and over the stamp and cardstock and rub. Unfold the Grid Paper and remove the cardstock.
Adhere the stamped Tempting Turquoise rectangle to the Pacific Point rectangle and then to the center of the front of the Tempting Turquoise card.
Pick out the beach chair thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the beach chair thinlit on top on one end. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Cut another beach chair out of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in the same way getting as close as you can to the previous cut out.
Cut the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper one more time using the beach chair thinlit and Big Shot. This time though, you only need the bottom of the chair from the arm rests down.
Use Paper Snips to cut across a straight line between the arm rests on the shorter piece of chair. Turn the piece upside down and you have a table to put between the chairs.
Place one of the full beach chair cut outs upside down on one side of a Silicone Craft Sheet. Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters and clamp the triangle edge of one quarter in a large binder clip. Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one corner of the Silicone Craft Sheet. Dab the sponge into the glue and then lightly onto the back of the beach chair cut out. Flip the beach chair cut out over and adhere it to the card front so it overlaps the far left side of the swirled layer a little bit.
Repeat the gluing process with the other full chair and adhere it to the far right side of the swirled turquoise layer.
Repeat the gluing process with the table cut out and adhere it in between the chairs.
Mount the small drink image from the Colorful Seasons Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp it on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock. Re-ink the stamp again and stamp a second image on a scrap of Whisper White.
Pick out the matching drink framelit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the stamped white scrap on a Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the drink framelit on top so it is centered over the stamped image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Repeat with the other drink image.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the drinks to the top of the table.
Mount the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Tempting Turquoise strip.
Unlock the Classic Label Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the sentiment into the punch and align it in the punching area so the words are centered. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment punch out to the card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
