June 2010 Club Projects

Project #1 for this month's club is a masculine card using emboss resist and brayering. I need more practice with the brayer, that's for sure, but the card turned out kind of artsy! LOL! The base card is Basic Black with a layer of Going Gray that has some paper piercing. The main image panel is Whisper White. The "Wanted" sentiment is stamped with Versamark and Really Rust and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder (EP). The horse from the same set is stamped with Versamark and Going Gray with some Basic Black Marker dabbed on the legs and belly. It was also heat embossed with Clear EP. Really Rust is brayered at the top and Going Gray is brayered at the bottom. The sun was masked with a 1/2" circle punched piece and then dabbed with the sponge and Really Rust. A "mountain" shape was torn from a post-it and used for masking. It was sponged with Going Gray and then Basic Gray. Basic Black was sponged at the bottom. Really Rust strips were paper pierced and added to either side of "Wanted". The stars were stamped with Basic Gray on Going Gray and punched with the Small Star Punch, and a Silver Brad was added to the center of each star. All products used to make this card are from Stampin' Up! I tried to CASE a card by Zindorf.
Project #1 is kind of time consuming, so this card is much simpler. I used the Bird On a Branch set and used every stamp. The branch, bird and sentiment were stamped with Basic Black and the background sprinkles and flowers were stamped with Pixie Pink. The base card and one layer of the matting are Pixie Pink, main image panel is Whisper White and the bottom mat is Basic Black. A ribbon tab was made with Black Satin Ribbon and 3 rhinestones were added for extra bling. Everything used to make this card except the rhinestones is from Stampin' Up! We will also be making color charts with the new color collections. Thanks for visiting my blog today!!
