iSpy Sketch Challenge–Week 9

Hello again! This week ISSC09 is from Emily Keaton (ekeaton @ SCS) and is based on this card. This is the sketch:


I altered the angle of the panels slightly from the sketch. I don’t know if there was a quick mathematician way of figuring out the angles, but I did it the slow way: 1)cut the pieces of paper so they are all the same width, 2)cut the top piece at an angle 3) hold the top piece over the second piece and trim with paper trimmer and repeat… lol..

Here’s my card:


After cutting all of the layers I adhered them to my work surface with temporary adhesive so I could stamp all of the papers at the same time. Once the ink dried I adhered all the layers to the black CS with foam dots. Pretty snazzy eh??

Design Details:
  • Stamps used are Beyond Borders, Too and Simply Sentiments from Mint Motif (sold exclusively at i {heart} papers)
  • Sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinders die. It has only one banner end so I die cut the sentiment once then turned the die around to cut the other end fancy! (I will do a quick video on that if you want!! I know it’s sometimes hard to visualize these things…)
  • Ink.. I get asked all the time what kind of white ink I use to get nice, opaque coverage on coloured cardstock… I use a couple of inkpads I got as an Elzybells DT member that were manufactured by Palette. I don’t know what I’m going to do when they run out. I also have an inkpad by VersaMark in Cloud White. It’s pretty good – especially because I have the re-inker and I keep it juicy – but my fall-back is always that Elzybells pad… Sorry!

Here's how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC09), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.
