Sky is the Limit pairs wonderfully with Shine On Designer Series Paper
I created this card for one of my valued customers to go with a sampler pack of the new Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper and Watermelon Wonder Ribbon that I sent to her, along with some rhinestones! As I was chopping up this paper, I decided that I needed to play with it — it’s so gorgeous and it was calling my name!
“Stacey, create something with me!”
So, naturally, I created a couple of cards using this great paper. I highly recommend this product.
Now, I will say that this paper is quite thicker than our standard designer series paper. Also it’s a true kraft color that pairs well with Crumb Cake but is definitely a different tone and texture. The patterns on one side are shiny foil while the pattern on the opposite sides are flat and single color. The colors on the opposite side are Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, and, my favorite, Bermuda Bay.
Here’s the Sky is the Limit card again photographed over a Bermuda Bay matte side of the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper. Love this pattern!
Method to reproduce the Sky is the Limit Card
For both cards, I cut a sheet of Crumb Cake cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and folded at 5-1/2″. For the blue card, I stamped the airplane image in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake card stock. For the pink card, I used Basic Black Archival Ink. Before fussy cutting the airplane, I stamped the small cloud from this set onto the “background” of the airplane using Crumb Cake ink.
For the propeller, I used a small scrap of vellum card stock, which I cut with the smallest circles framelit using my Big Shot. I poked a hole in the center of the circle and in the center of the plane’s propeller using the Stampin’ Pierce tool and added a brad to hold it together.
I cut a 1-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the card base with some SNAIL Adhesive.
I cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel from a piece of crumb cake card stock for the greeting panel, and a 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Bermuda Bay card stock to matte the greeting panel. The pink card was matted with Watermelon Wonder cards stock.
The clouds were stamped onto the greeting panel in Crumb Cake ink. The greeting and heart clouds were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (the pink card is stamped with Watermelon Wonder).
I popped the greeting panel off the card base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used dimensionals to pop the plane off the card base.
