Morning, you guys! Happy happy HAWWWMP Day!!
It’s kind of a day of new beginnings here in Atlanta for us. My card today will give you a hint, I think!
I decided it was a great time to ink up a new stamp set called…On To Adventure. Take a look-see:
I played along with The Paper Players this week for this one.
I started with some Night of Navy paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted it on Merry Merlot for the card front.
On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the cute golfer guy from the On To Adventure set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. While I had the stamp out, I also stamped it in Granny Apple Green on some Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights DSP.
I cut the guy out of the Whisper White using a Rectangle Stitched Die. Then I used my Ivory, Light Mango Melody, Light Smoky Slate and Light Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends to color him. I fussy cut the jacket from the Granny Apple Green image and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the image. Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I stamped the On To Adventure sentiment in Merry Merlot on Whisper White and cut it with a smaller Rectangle Stitched Die. That I popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used my Stamparatus again to add a second On To Adventure sentiment in Merry Merlot to a Whisper White panel. At the bottom, I added a second retiree in Tuxedo Black and used my Blends to color him! Do you like his Granny Apple Green/Night of Navy/Mango Melody outfit? 😉 He’s also got cool shades – Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker for those!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the camera-toting retiree on the front…
…and I added more Night of Navy DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think this is just the cutest stamp set – everyone needs On To Adventure in their tool box! Whether it’s for a friend or….for yourself! I hope you like!
P.S. Can you guess our new beginning? 😉
