Combo Challenge Post

Good morning everyone!  I have a combined challenge post using the same stamp set for you this Monday morning......Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Challenge and this week's Late Night Stamper Challenge.  This week's LNS challenge is to use your favorite SAB set.  For me it's the stamp set, Feeling Sentimental.  It's definitely a set I will keep for years to come, and feel it's a great set to use for guy cards.

First Up - The Technostamper Challenge Card

Here is the sketch, and you can click HERE to play along:

For my card, I stamped the phone booth image 3 times, twice using Calypso Coral ink and once using Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla c/s.  For the Calypso Coral images, I cut just the doors out on one image and then the whole phone image on the other.  I then layered the phone booth and then the doors over the early Espresso image, and used my Early Espresso inkpad to swipe the edges of the cut out pieces.  I used a piece of Tea for Two DSP for the background, and wanted to grunge it up a bit.  I crumpled up the DSP and then swiped the Early Espresso inkpad over it.  I think it gives it an interesting effect to the paper.  I then added some Very Vanilla Brads and Early Espresso ribbon, and a saying from the set, Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Here's the rest of the details:

Stamps: SAB Feeling Sentimental, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Tea for Two DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accent Dies, Bitty Banner Framelits, Very Vanilla Brads, Early Espresso Ribbon, Sponges, Scissors, Dimensionals

Late Night Stamper Challenge - Saying Goodbye to SAB!

It's hard to believe that this is the last week for this year's SAB - another great selection of FREE stamps and embellishments!  You can download your project HERE.

Once again I went with my favorite set, Feeling Sentimental, for my challenge card.  I love how you can create motion with the bike image, and thought I would go with this look again for my card.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-Jig to help place the bike.  I inked the image up with Soft Suede ink and then just kept stamping the image until the image was very faint.  I then used the Honeycomb EF on only half of the Very Vanilla c/s and then added a strip of First Edition DSP for the background.  I used distressing tool on the edges and then swiped the edges with the Soft Suede inkpad.  Here's more of the details:

Stamps: Feeling Sentimental SAB, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Soft Suede
Papers: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, First Edition DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Honeycomb EF, Bitty Banner Framelits, 1-3/8" Square Punch, Soft Suede Brads and Ribbon, Vintage Trinkets, Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Distressing Tool, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals
