Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge # 249-No Patterned Paper

Hello and Welcome to the Cardsz 4 Guyz Challenge #249- No Patterned Paper.

This card was the #1 Winner in the Top # for the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge!

A Good Man and Summer Days stamp sets by Stampin’ Up® make for a great pair for this Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge. This turned out to be an avid stamper type card.

I just love this quiet and peaceful moment between the man and the girl.

I decided to try something a little different and make a scene inside the card that could be seen outside the card through an oval die cut.

In order to do a Partial Die Cut to leave the little girl uncut, I came up with a novel idea. I made a smaller plate to use in my Big Shot. I took an old cracked plate and had my son cut it at 3 1/2 inches. He then filed the rough surface and rounded the corners. I am calling this “Theresa’s Small Cutting Plate”.

I adhered the front panel with the stamped man and girl to the Poppy Parade Card Stock (CS) card base with repositional tape, then placed the oval die cut on the front panel. I used sticky note tape to hold the oval in place and a Sharpie to mark the area I did not want to cut (from the top of the man’s head to his pant leg). The Big Shot sandwich from bottom to top is: Magnetic Plate, Cutting Plate, Card Stock, Oval Die cutting surface side down and finally Theresa’s Small Cutting Plate. I placed Theresa’s Small Cutting Plate as shown before running it through the Big Shot. It will only get cut where the plate covers the CS.

Here is what it looks like after running the sandwich through the Big Shot. The rest of the girl was fussy cut.

I cut an oval out of the middle of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch sheet of Gina K. Masking Magic paper to mask the inside of the card. I sponged the sunset with the following Stampin’ Up! inks: Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Terracotta Tile and Poppy Parade. I used the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers to color the images. The Stampin’ Blend colors used are: Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Misty Moonlight, Purple Posy. Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo. I used the light and the dark Stampin’ Blend for each color except the Flirty Flamingo. I only used the light Stampin’ Blend for that one.
