Sassy Studio Designs Fun in the Sun

Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the Passion for Promarkers challenge. The theme is "Fun in the Sun." It's a great theme because we are in the throes of a heatwave. So please join us with your fabulous papercrafts.

What better way to celebrate Fun in the Sun than with a beach themed party. I started by coloring the Simply Sassy Swimsuit image and colored her with Promarkers. Next I chose the craft cardstock base and paper from my stash. I used the Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene Builder Edgers along with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink to simulate sand. I added cuts from the Frantic Stamper Ocean Floor Icons to continue with the beachy scene.

I added the Dienamics Accent It Reel life dies cut and another Frantic Stamper die--Tropical Drinks using foil paper. Finally I stamped and trimmed the actual the sentiment card using a Close To My Heart stamp. Doesn't it look inviting?

Sassy Studio Designs July Progressive Challenge

My Sassy Studio Design Progressive Challenge July 2015 is finished!

I colored the image with Copic markers and then using a Paper Studios embossing folder along with DCWV white core paper, I sanded it with sand paper.  Next I used the Frantic Stamper Precision Die set Love Filled Heart along with glitter and foil paper. The next part forced me to find a way to align the Frantic Stamper Wavy Banners and Greetings stamp set with the Wavy Banners die set. It was actually very simple and now I have a sure fire way to get it right. 

This is my first attempt. It's not bad but I'm a little OCD. I wanted the stamp and die to align better.

  • Die cut the wavy banner using a small piece of cardstock. This is your template.

  • Stamp the wavy banner onto your chosen cardstock.

  • Using a piece a Painter's or other easily removable tape, align and tape the template on top of the stamped image.

  • Now position the die onto the template and secure it with a piece of tape.

  • Finally run this "sandwich" through your die cutting machine and voila!

Use this same technique for any die with matching stamp for perfect results. Tip: Be sure to keep the template in the same packaging as the die.
