Pocketful of Sunshine Dazzling Sunglasses
P layful card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer series paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Berry Burst Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" from Basic Black Cardstock
- 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 7/8" x 5" of Berry Burst ombre stripes without lines design from Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, cut so that the stripes are vertical
- 7/8" x 5" of Crushed Curry ombre stripes without lines design from Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, cut so that the stripes are vertical
- 7/8" x 5" of Dapper Denim ombre stripes without lines design from Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, cut so that the stripes are vertical
- 1" x 4-1/2" from Whisper White Cardstock
Place the piece of scratch paper on top of the Stampin' Pierce Mat and then place the larger rectangle of Whisper White Cardstock on top. The mat will give you a good surface to stamp on so that you get really clean, crisp images and the scratch paper will protect the mat from ink.
Mount the sunglasses image from the Pocketful of Sunshine Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Basic Black Archival Ink Pad and stamp it randomly all over the white rectangle at different angles. Let some of the sunglasses go off the sides of the cardstock. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time.
Use the Markers to color in the sunglasses frames.
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide one of the strips of ombre pattern Color Theory Designer Series Paper into the punch so that the lighter colored end will be punched. Get the strip centered in the punching area and punch. Repeat with the other two strips of designer paper.
Slide the white strip of cardstock into the Banner Triple Punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Lay all the punched strips on the sunglasses layer WITHOUT adhering them to get an idea of where they will all go. Trim the white strip down a bit so it won't be quite as long as the designer paper strips.
Mount the "you dazzle me" sentiment from the Pocketful of Sunshine Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Berry Burst Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the punched white strip.
Use the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to carefully go over the word "dazzle" and give it some sparkle.
Adhere the designer paper strips to the top of the sunglasses layer at slightly different angles so they overlap each other but you can still see some of the colors of each strip.
Adhere the stamped sentiment banner over the top of the designer paper strips so you can still see some of the colors in the designer paper strips. Leave room on the left side of the sentiment strip for the paper clip embellishment.
Trim off excess designer paper and cardstock on the left side.
Slide one of the Crushed Curry banner paper clips from the Eclectic Shaped Paper Clips onto the left side of the sentiment banner at a slight downward angle.
Cut a 16" piece of Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine. Fold the twine in half. Then, tie it to the top corner of the paper clip embellishment in a small double bow. Trim the ends.
Adhere the sunglasses layer to the black rectangle.
Adhere the matted sunglasses layer to the front of the Berry Burst card at an angle.
Remove one of the small solid stars from the Hearts & Stars Elements. Color one side of the star with the brush tip of the Crushed Curry Marker.
Adhere the colored star element to the lower right side of the sunglasses layer using a Mini Glue Dot.
Adhere a large Dapper Denim dot from the Glitter Enamel Dots to the center of the star embellishment.
