The Paper Players #201 & Just Add Ink #219

This week I have used both Nance's sketch from The Paper Players & Trish's inspiration challenge from Just Add Ink to create this card:-

Here are the challenges (just click on the picture to go direct to each challenge):-

It's a great layout & I love the navy, yellow, grey & white palette, & especially those navy & white stripes!

I've used some new SU goodies including Hello Honey cardstock (paired with Night of Navy), a Project Life by SU photopolymer stamp to create the dotty stripes, the large rotary stamp to create the "ransom note" style sentiment, the cute itty bitty heart punch & some new Moonlight DSP. 

The tee shirt was created by using the new baby onesie die.  I stamped & layered two stripey ones to create the raglan sleeve seams.  Then I enlarged the neck opening by using a 1/2" circle punch.  I trimmed a strip from the bottom of each sleeve, then layered the white onesies onto a navy layer to create the neck & arm trims.  Then I cut off the bottom of the onesies to create a straight edge for the bottom of the tee shirt.  The whole lot has been popped up on dimensionals.

The sentiment strips were attached with glue dots to create a little bit of height off the background DSP.

Thanks for looking!  :)

What brilliant use of new products! Love how you made the t-shirt, and the sentiment is adorable! You've inspired me to pull out that rotary stamp and use it. It wasn't cooperating the first time I tried! Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players, Helen!
