Ticket Trio Tutorial

Good morning! I'm still catching up on posting tutorials for last weeks GKD release projects. This one is for Tami's cool new set, Ticket Trio. This is a fun set. Although mine is red rubber, this would be a great set to try out Gina's new clear stamps option.

To begin, I cut Pure Luxury Ivory card stock using my Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® Labels and Tags large ticket die template. Then I sponged Memento Pistachio ink around the edges of the openings.

Tip: If you don't have the Labels and Tags Spellbinders set, you can still create this look. Stamp the image first, then trim around the edges to create a rectangle. Use a standard hole punch to punch out semi-circles between the tickets, then at each corner. Or, if you have a ticket corner punch, you can use that. If you want perforations between the tickets, you can use a piercing tool or Scor-Bug.

Then I used Memento Gray Flannel to stamp the ticket image. Since I was using red rubber, I simple centered the image by hand and stamped. With the wonderful cut lines Gina produces in her red rubber, it was easy to do without a stamp positioner, but this is where clear stamps would have come in handy!

Next, I stamped the two sentiments with Memento Espresso Truffle.

I used the smaller ticket die template in Labels and Tags to cut another piece of Ivory, then sponged with Memento Pistachio. After removing from the die template, I stamped the words with Espresso Truffle again.

For the background, I sponged Memento Toffee Crunch.

Then sponged Memento Peanut Brittle.

Then sponged Memento Espresso Truffle. Although I have cut my background with rectangle Nestabilities, when assembling the card, I decided to trim the edges off, because the contrast distracted from the focal image.

I stamped the brach, from Celebrate the Season, using Memento Pistachio.

Then I used the star and "celebrate" stamps, from Ticket Trio, to stamp in a random pattern on the background. I used Espresso Truffle ink, but stamped off on scratch paper to make the images lighter.

I layered the background with Pure Luxury Smokey Slate. The designer paper is from Gina K's Casual Friday paper pack. I used some of the fabulous web ribbon from Creative Impressions and added three star brads. My 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch card base is Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
