I wanted to swing past and show you just how easy it is to create teen cards using the For the Win Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! using just a few products.
This card I made for my sons friend, who is also in to basketball, but there are also golf balls, softballs and baseballs in this set! so you could use it for the whole family. It’s a great versatile set!
Here is the card I made:
I had to create this card quite quickly, so I stuck to a very simple colour scheme of Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and Whisper White.
The basketballs really pop when heat embossed with black embossing powder onto the Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then punched out using the 1 1/4″ circle punch (retired) but you can also use the Layering Circle Framelits too.
I also used the gorgeous Rectangular Stitched Framelits to create my borders. I elevated the outside Basic Black layer using our Foam Adhesive Strips, then created the Whisper White inner layer.
For the inner black layer I again used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to keep a consistent border. I randomly adhered the basketballs over this piece, then trimmed away the excess, before adhering the whole layer onto the Whisper White.
Then its a simple as adhering a sentiment and the trophy!
I hope you’re inspired to add this set to your collection! You won’t regret it.
Welcome to CTC 240 – where this week we are CASEing the Everyday Occasions Section of the Annual Catalogue on pages 12-71.
It’s been a long while since I have played along on any challenges, but this week my ‘baby’ turned thirteen, so I had great reason to get creating and play along!
I was so excited to see the For the Win stamp set in the Annual Catalogue this year. I have been waiting for a new sporting stamp set to come out! My son plays basketball and is a fan of the Milwaukee Bucks, so I had to CASE the card on page 59 for this weeks challenge.
I really liked the layout and background stamping, so I kept the basic elements and just changed up the colours to suit the Milwaukee Bucks, and of course, just used the basketball for this card. The stamparatus really helped me to complete the background stamping by using the hinges to evenly space the background sentiment – it just makes it so simple! So here’s my version of this card…
I used a gel pen to imitate stitching lines, and black embossing powder on the basketballs rather than just ink – it just gives it a bit more definition. I also pulled out the Well Said Stamp Set and coordinating Well Written Dies for the words, but used the old faithful retired Little Numbers for the 13!
I hope you like my take on the card this week. I really found CASEing so helpful given my mojo has been MIA for such a long time. I find that once I start creating using the catalogue images as a jumping board, the creativity just starts to flow! Why not give it a go if you’re feeling a bit stuck, and show of your design on the challenge group on Facebook by clicking the image below:
Don’t forget to continue the hop around and see what the rest of the crew have created for you all. There are a lot of pages in the Everyday Occasions section, so there’s a lot of inspiration to be had! Next up is Elizabeth … see what she has created by clicking the link below 🙂
