TCC40- Thinking of You



Hi Friends!!

It is time for the new Card Concept #40 “Forest Friends” Challenge- I just love our cute inspiration photo!!  This Mixed Media card was designed using several techniques along with the Splitcoaststampers’ Mix-Ability MIX136 “White Wash” Challenge.  

The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media. 

Please stop by our TCC40 Forest Friends Challenge to check out the rest of the talented Design Team projects and we hope that you can find some time to gather your supplies together and come join in on the fun!! 

To create this card:

Apply Gesso® to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and allow to dry (it dries fairly quickly but you can use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process).

Add a few drops of Soft White Acrylic Paint to a Gelli® Arts Printing Plate, brayer over the plate and add a drop of Soft Black Acrylic Paint (using a brayer to gently blend with the white paint).

Lay the Memory Box® Heartland Stencil onto the Gelli® Arts Printing Plate, place the prepared Whisper White cardstock over the stencil, press the paper into the paint and lift.

Remove the stencil, spritz a bit of water over the plate, place another piece of cardstock over the Gelli® Arts Printing Plate to create a “ghost” print - save this print for a later project.  

Trim the background print and mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Basic Gray card base.

Stamp the fox image from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, color the fox using Stampin’ Write Markers- Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand; Mossy Meadow for the grass and Pool Party for the sky.

Use the Big Shot™ using the My Favorite Things™ Stitched Rectangle STAX dies to cut out the image and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.

De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Embossing Buddy®.  Ink the leaves from the retired French Foliage stamp set using Versamark™ ink onto Whisper White cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder, heat with the Heat Tool and adhere the leaves to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner using the Banner Punch and mount the sentiment to the focal image. 

Add a copper clip to the corner of the fox image panel and mount the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  The Wilderness Awaits, Teeny Tiny Wishes, French Foliage (retired)

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Versamark™, Stampin’ Write Markers- Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Pool Party; Acrylic Paint- Soft Black, Soft White
