CCREW0512DF–Lean On Me Farewell

Today’s card share is one more for the Splitcoast Stampers CreativeCrew challenge!   Featuring retiring In-Color 2010-12 Designer Series Paper and Colors along with a farewell to Jumbo Brads!!  Sadly, everything except the stamped image , scallop edge punch and embossing folder used on today’s card share is retiring at month’s end!CCREW0512DF_Sharon_Field-1

The stamped focal image and sentiment are from the Lean On Me Stamp Set.  Blushin Bride DSP and Lean On Me

Blades of grass were painted along the bottom edge using a Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker.grass and dress painted using brush tip of markers

And the dress was colored using a blushing bride marker as well.  After coloring in the entire dress, I went back and added stripes of the same color using the brush tip of the blushing bride marker.  A shadow along the right edge of the image was added using a wisteria wonder marker.mat pack and paper piercing tool used to create faux stitching

After punching the blushing bride in-color dsp, it was attached to both whisper white and concord crush layers before using a mat pack and paper piercing tool to create the faux stitching effect.5/8" and jumbo brads retire at months end

I will miss jumbo brads, LOL… even if I didn’t use them often!!  These brads were positioned by leaving three holes between piercings with mat pack and paper piercing tool.

When piercing card stock for brad placement, I often pierce through as many layers as possible… on today’s card, the piercing was done through three layers of card stock.  This allows your card to lie flatter when attaching to the final card layer… and no prong shadows or tips to show!

We’d love to have you play along with the CreativeCrew Challenge!  Simply create a card or project featuring retiring 2010-12 Designer Series Paper and card stock, then visit the CreativeCrew Gallery to add your design!

Well… off to my stamp studio… I’ve got a lot on my list for today, and a long day ahead!!   I look forward to reading your comments both here, and in my SCS Gallery!
