One Wild Ride for Global Design Project 096
Time for another Global Design Project Challenge! This week you Case the Designer | Tanja Kolar! A very talented member of the Global Design Project Design Team. Her card is simple and perfect! I was excited to CASE – Copy and Selectively Edit this one. I tend to surpass simple when creating with paper crafts, so it’s nice to be reminded that simple is sometimes just right. I decided to use the fabulous One Wild Ride Stamp Set for this challenge.
I had seen a card while browsing Pinterest (you can follow my Pinterest Boards Here: Stampin’ Hoot!) that had used just the front of the motorcycle and I have been meaning to incorporate it into a card or scrapbook page, but didn’t put it into action until now. One Wild Ride Stamp Set happened to work out well for this layout and “just the front” of the motorcycle. I went ahead and used the same Stitched Shape Framelits as Tanja did on her card. I cropped the square first prior to stamping on them. I didn’t intend to crop and pop the “Hope Today is One Wild Ride” sentiment, but I made a booboo when stamping it the first go round, so I had to cover up my booboo and the Classic Label Punch worked, although not my ideal design :).
I wanted to make sure the envelope coordinated with the card since the design was so simple. It just adds to the presentation and steps it up a notch! I love the splashy background stamp included in the One Wild Ride Stamp Set. It is especially great in the Cajun Craze Classic Ink color. It compliments the motorcycle well, as well as the Copper Metallics Sequin I used as an accent.
There are several nice sentiments in the One Wild Ride set that work perfectly for any motorcycle enthusiast. I come from a small town where most people either ride motorcycles or horses. I have a photo from when I was little where me and two of my sisters are sitting on my dad’s motorcycle. It is one of my favorite photos from my childhood and this set always brings that photo to my memories forefront.
You can see two of my other creations using this set here: Pink One Wild Ride and Life’s a Journey. This set has so many possibilities. I plan on making a scrapbook page and a frame the next time I use it! Handmade gifts for family are always a hit!
- Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in to make a standard size card to fit inside our Medium Envelopes.
- A piece of Whisper White Cardstock was cut to 4 in x 5.25 in and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals for my favorite white on white look.
- I took the two largest Stitched Shape Square Framelits and zipped them through the Big Shot with Whisper White Cardstock. The smallest of the two I stamped the front-end of the motorcycle with Basic Black Archival Ink. I took Cajun Craze Classic Ink and the “splash” background stamp and stamped it several times on the larger stitched square. I added Metallic Black Thread to the back of the smaller square prior to adhering it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The larger square was also adhered this way.
- I stamped the Route 66 image in Basic Black Archival Ink and fussy cut it with the Paper Snips. It was adhered with both Snail Adhesive and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The Hope Today is One Wild Ride sentiment was stamped on Whisper White with Basic Black Archival Ink and the quickly cropped out with the Classic Label Punch. (It just barely squeezed in).
- I stamped the Life’s A Journey image twice (Basic Black on Whisper White) and cropped it out with the coordinating Best Badge Punch. I snipped out the Journey with the Paper Snips and popped it up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The background stamp was also used on the Medium Whisper White Envelope.
- The final touches were added with the Metallic Sequins Assortment. I used the Black and Copper in various sizes.
