The Paper Players Challenge PP248 Masculine Card

Hello and Happy Monday!  I survived the day and at some point I had my doubts I would!  Why oh why are weekends not longer!

I made a card tonight for The Paper Players Challenge Blog.  To check out the challenge and link up your own card, click Here.

This was a masculine card challenge and to me that meant one thing....pull out the Traveler Stamp Set!  lol

Leave it to me to not use just one or two stamp sets.  I have a little bit of everything going on here!  I have an A2 card base of Baked Brown Sugar, a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8" layer of Pool Party, and then a 5 1/4" x 4" layer of watercolor paper.  I stamped the World Map stamp onto the Watercolor Paper with Brown Stazon Ink and then used my Aqua Painters to watercolor and distress the map.  I stamped the ship from the Traveler stamp set onto a piece of Pool Party with Memento Tuxedo Black, I then stamped the swish under it to look like Ocean Waves in Lost Lagoon.  I stamped the ship again on Whisper White and fussy cut the body of the ship and smoke stacks out and glued to the top of the ship that was stamped on Pool Party.  I cut the ship out with my MFT stitched circle dies and cut a larger circle out of Baked Brown Sugar to layer under it. I glued the blue circle to the Baked Brown Sugar circle and adhered them to my Map layer with dimensionals.  I stamped a cloud in Soft Sky from the Sprinkles of Life set and punched it out with the Tree Builder Punch and adhered it off the circle and cut the edge off at the end of the map layer.  I heat embossed the sentiment in gold on Whisper White from the You've Got This stamp set and cut a banner end on the left side.  I backed it with a layer of Baked Brown Sugar and used my Bone Folder to put a wave in it.  I adhered it to my card with dimensionals.  I stamped a suitcase from the Traveler set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White and then fussy cut it and adhered it to the right side of the sentiment banner with dimensionals.  Whew! That was fun but I had a LOT of stamp sets out!  Oh well, that's how I roll!  lol
