TSSC7 and WT156 Card

I started this card on FRIDAY and was finally able to finish it up last night. As soon as I saw MJ's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge #7 (TSSC7) I saw this card in my head. Finding time to make it this past week was another story...

This just shows how long it took me to get going last week - a NEW TSSC comes out today. In a couple of hours, actually. Sheesh!

I also incorporated the "Ways to use it" challenge from this week on Splitcoast (WT156). I've never specifically done a WT challenge but this one worked out well - it was to use the computer on your project. All of the wording is done on the computer, plus I made the lined notebook paper.

I love those ribbon slides from the new Hodgepodge Hardware kit in the Occasions Mini. Danyelle from Hangnailz N Papercutz sent me some, and these are the last of them. Now I guess I've gotta buy my own, LOL!

The drink and umbrella stamps are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela's Happy Hour set. I think this is probably my favorite set ever! I find myself reaching for it all the time. I just love the size of this hurricane glass and all the accessories that go with it. And don't get me started on the awesome hibiscus blossoms - in THREE sizes! *swoon*

I did the words on the computer and printed them out, then I stamped the hurricane glass in Palette Noir on GP 110# white cardstock. I don't have all the sizes of the A*Muse ovals, so I had to improvise because all of mine are too large. So I made a mask of the bottom part of the glass, punched a small SU oval out of a scrap of cardstock and sponged on the Brocade Blue ink. I colored the glass and the highlight with Prismacolor markers. I used a Quickie Glue Pen to do the glitter.

Then I stamped the umbrella on a scrap of GP cardstock and used the Quickie Pen again to add the purple glitter. I cut a slit with my Xacto knife and stick the umbrella into the glass and popped it up on a dimensional. I used TRANSPARENT glitter for both of these items so that you would still be able to see the stamped image underneath it. That piece is up on dimensionals.

For the bottom right panel I made some lined paper on the computer and used Word Art so I could add the words at an angle without printing twice. I punched with my SU spiral punch and distressed a little with scissors so it looks like it was a torn sheet from a notebook.

The background paper is from a DCWV stack. The ribbon is from RABOM and is two-tone grosgrain - how COOL! The cardstock colors are Brocade Blue and Wild Wasabi. Thanks for looking!
