Inspire.Create.Challenges #002 | Happy 30th Birthday!

Hello! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge! I know, the first one went so quickly…. hope you are going to take part this time around too! Check out the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog for a heap more inspiration with this weeks Sketch Challenge.

Inspire.Create.Challenge 002 Papercraft Sketch challenge

I love a simple sketch… and so designed this sketch to give the Design Team as much freedom as I could without presenting them with a large empty box! At the time of writing this, I haven’t seen what they have made with it, and I cannot wait to see! They are all so talented, and I know that everyone’s creations are going to be so different!

I really wanted to create something bright! My mum always complains my cards are muted colours… so I might make another version of this one for her birthday coming up! The stamp set at work here is Number of Years, along with the coordinating Large Numbers framelits.

The panel is in Crumb Cake, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The numbers are the same, but stamped onto Melon Mambo card stock instead.

The sentiment is then stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and heat embossed in clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This quick and easy technique creates coloured embossing in any colour! There are two ways to do this:

  1. Ink your stamp in Versamark and then the colour… then add your Embossing Powder
  2. Ink you stamp in your coloured ink and then quickly add your Embossing Powder (this works well on Vellum as inks take a while longer to dry rather than card stock!)

Here the sentiment is heat embossed on Vellum, and stapled to a scrap of Whisper White (anyone else LOVE staples, or is it just me?!).
