  1. Score a piece of 8.5" x 11 black cardstock at 5.5" and fold to form a card. Set aside.
  2. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp Lady Vagabond and her luggage from the Lady Vagabond A5 Foam Mounted Stamp Set and the Steampunk cat and the smaller clock from the Lady Vagabond Flying A5 Foam Mounted Stamp Set onto white cardstock. 
  3. Color all the images with Copic markers, fussy-cut them,  and edge them with a dark marker.
  4. Use Silver Ingot Metallic Spectrum Noir marker to color the rim of the clock, then cut with one of the Nestabilies Circle Dies.
  5. Coat the cat's goggles, the watch on his hat, the clock face, and the binocular lenses with several coats of Clear Glaze pen, letting each layer dry between applications. 
  6. Set these elements aside.
  7. Use magnets to secure the the Distressed Bricks stencil over a piece of grey cardstock on the STAY-tion. 
  8. Using the large blending brush from the 3 Blending Brush Set by Time for Tea Designs,  brush Fired Brick Distress ink over the stencil until there's no color left on the brush. 
  9. Brush Rusted Hinge Distress ink over the the stencil to add additional color variations to the brick. Brush off the excess ink onto scrap paper.
  10. Brush a small amount of Aged Mahogany Distress ink over the stencil to deepen the color, then brush the excess ink onto a piece of scrap paper.
  11. Repeat Step #10 with Pumice Stone, then Black Soot Distress ink to dirty the bricks a bit.
  12. Keeping the stencil in place, lightly trace the bricks with a black chalk pencil.
  13. Remove the stencil and clean.
  14. Continue to add black chalk pencil details to the mortar and the brick, then blend with a q-tip, your finger, or a tissue.
  15. Trim blue cardstock 6" x 8.25".
  16. Use magnets to secure the Cloudy Day stencil over the blue cardstock onto the STAY-tion.
  17. Use the Hunkydory Blending Tool to sponge Sharktooth White Atelier Fusion ink over the stencil onto the blue cardstock. Remove the stencil and clean. Heat set the clouds.
  18. Remove the stenciled blue cardstock from the STAY-tion and use magnets to secure it to the base of a stamping platform.
  19. Place the birds stamp from the Small Elements Set 2 Clear Stamp Set by That's Crafty* facedown on the top right of the blue panel. Press the lid onto the back of the stamp and lift.
  20. Ink the stamp with  Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko and stamp.
  21. Keeping the stamp in the same position, slide the blue cardstock over ~3.25" to the right and secure with magnets.
  22. Re-ink the stamp and stamp again. Remove the birds stamp and clean. 
  23. Re-secure the blue panel to the base of the platform. Position the compass stamp from the from Small Elements Stamp facedown onto the center of the blue panel as shown above. Press the stamp platform's lid onto the back of the stamp and lift.
  24. Ink the stamp with Starlite Black Brilliance ink and stamp. Repeat if necessary for a good impression.
  25. Heat set the clouds, birds, and compass at the top of the blue cardstock. 
  26. The white fusion ink interfered a bit with the black ink, so went over the birds with a black marker, then heat set again because why not?
  27. The brick stenciled grey cardstock was adhered to the base of the blue panel, which was then trimmed to 5.25" wide. The entire panel was edged with Black Soot Distress ink.
  28. The luggage, Lady Vagabond, Steampunk kitty, and the clock were adhered as shown.
  29. The sentiment was trimmed from the inside cover of the patterned paper and edged with Black Soot Distress ink.
  30. Several layers of Clear Glaze pen were added to the small compass in the sentiment.
  31. The sentiment panel was adhered as shown.
  32. The card front was adhered to the black card and I called it done!
* I think the Small Elements Set 2 Clear Stamp Set by That's Crafty* will be incredibly useful. The stamps are sized to fit inchies, twinchies, dominos, and other small things. It's new to Topflight Stamp Store along with three other sets of Small Elements Clear Stamp Sets and some wonderful Dinky Stencils.

Presenting: A Slimline Card with Charlie Chaplin

It's Tuesday which means it's my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. I love to contain images within other images, so when I saw Darkroom Door's Filmstrip Frame Red Rubber Cling Stamp, I knew it would be ever-so-useful. 

Then AALL and Create released the Charlie Clear Stamp Set #428 by Janet Klein and I really hoped that the two would work together. Hurray! They did! Not only that, but Stan and Ollie and both Marilyn stamps from the Marilyn set fit in the frame too. BTW, those sets are all by Janet Klein for AALL and Create.

Here's the card.

A Note: I googled Charlie Chaplin to find out the color of his eyes. I found out that they were a beautiful blue. I also found out that his birthday was April 16!

Instructions:
  1. Use a stamp platform and position the stamp facedown onto a piece of 8.5" x 5" cardstock (which should be secured with magnets). The stamp's right edge should align with the edge of the stamping platform (around 8.5") and the bottom of the stamp should be flush with the edge of the platform.
  2. Press the lid of the platform onto the back of the stamp, lift the lid, ink the stamp with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and stamp.
  3. Wipe the excess ink off the stamp and re-ink using Tea Dye Distress ink. Stamp again.
  4. Remove the stamp from the platform, clean it, and dry it too.
  5. Reposition the stamp facedown, so that the right edge of the stamp is ~3.25" from left edge of the stamp platform (at the 5.125"ish mark), 
  6. Repeat Steps #2, #3, and #4.
  7. To get the last frame, keep the stamp where it is on the platform's lid and move the paper 3.25" to the right.
  8. Repeat Steps #2, #3, and #4 (and #6).
  9. Cut the image panel with the second largest die from the Essential Rectangle Frames from the Sue Wilson by Slimline Collection.
  10. Use Memento ink to stamp Charlie into the center frame and onto label paper. Fussy-cut the label paper version and place over his counterpart on the image panel. 
  11. Secure the image panel die-cut onto the STAY-tion with magnets.
  12. Brush Antique Linen Distress ink over the entire panel of three Filmstrip Frames to create a non-white background. 
  13. Secure the Rainbow Stencil over the top Filmstrip Frame and secure with magnets. Use Post-It Notes to block the sides, top and bottom of the panel. 
  14. Use a q-tip or something small to sponge Barn Door, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet over the Rainbow Stencil. Remove the stencil and heat set the ink.
  15. Using the stamp platform, position the sentiment stamp facedown as desired over the rainbow on the image panel. 
  16. Press the platform's lid onto the stamp, lift, ink with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink,  and stamp the sentiment onto the rainbow. Repeat inking and stamping if necessary. I should have left well enough alone as my second impression isn't perfectly pristine. Woe is my Virgo self.
  17. I decided that I needed an element in the bottom frame and opted to use the movie clapper thingy stamp. 
  18. Use the platform and Memento ink to stamp the movie clapper thingy onto the bottom film frame.
  19. Lift the mask off Charlie and use Copic markers to color him and the movie clapper thingy.
  20. Stamp the ticket from the Charlie Clear Stamp Set #428 three times, brush the tickets with Distress inks, fussy-cut them, then edge 'em with a dark marker.
  21. Mat the image panel die-cut with black cardstock cut .25" larger.
  22. Cut patterned paper to to 3.875" x 8.75" and edged with a black marker.
  23. Adhere the patterned paper to a 4" x 9" black card.
