Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC38: Traveler

Happy Monday!  With the arrival of October (how is that possible??) we've started a new year at Stampin' Up! and I'm really looking forward to all that's in store.  To get things started we have a fun new color sketch over on the SSINKspiration blog and combined products from both the Annual and Holiday catalogs for a fun result.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added another layer of Crumb Cake for the cardfront that I started by using the Seasonal Decorative Masks and sponged the dots using Crumb Cake ink in a diagonal effect across the cardfront.    Then I took a sponge and sponged around the edge of the cardfront with Crumb Cake ink and attached the cardfront to the cardbase with dimensionals so it stands out.  Next I added a couple of flags, the first using Sweet Sugarplum DSP from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack and the other used Crush Curry cardstock and was embossed with the Big Shot and Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I used Paper Snips to cut the tails in the flags.

For the stamped image I used the Traveler stamp set and stamped the globe image (love the antique look of it) using Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits.  I made mat for the oval using the same ovals and some Soft Suede ink. before attaching it to  the cardfront with dimensionals.  The greeting is from the Guy Greetings stamp set and was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink directly on the cardfront.  The bow is made with Crushed Curry Baker's Twine and then I added a few enamel elements using the Regals and 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Dots.

These decorative masks are a quick, easy, and affordable way to add a custom element to a project using any color or combination of colors you need.  The design team members are sharing some great ideas using this months color sketch so go check them out for more inspiration and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
