Pin It Now! After all this time as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I own very, very few stamps from other companies. I just really feel that SU's stamps are so completely superior in every way that I have no need for anything else! Except when it comes to Daddy's airplanes. :) These stamps are exact images of the airplanes Dad has owned or flew, so I have to keep it on hand just for him!
As soon as I saw the aperture layers people were putting in shadow box cards, I hatched this idea of using the Cupcake Builder Punch to make clouds, which would part so your could see an airplane.
Using torn printer paper, I made masks to sponge Marina Mist Classic Ink on two squares of Whisper White Cardstock. One became my background, and I punched the clouds out of the other one. the clouds are mounted on strips of Window Sheet using Sticky Strip.
For the front of the card, I chose Daffodil Delight and punched my window with the Postage Stamp Punch. The airplane on the front is stamped in More Mustard Classic Ink.
For the float plane, I stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock in Jet Black Staz-On Ink and watercolored it with Daffodil Delight Classic Ink using a Blender Pen before cutting it out and attaching it to my background with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I couldn't get a picture of it completely closed, but when it is you can't see the plane at all. :)
It's always fun to impress your parents and show them how far you have come from construction paper and dried pasta!
