I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
hope you are having a great weekend! My hubby was not able to have his maintenance chemo this past week since he caught a cold (he has now had it for 2 weeks and this week late Wednesday eve. after Awana, I came down with the chest congestion/sore throat part of the cold).
Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry,
Unfortunately, I have stayed homebound the rest of the week and in addition to missing my Ladie's Bible Study, we decided to stay home instead of meeting with our Small Group study/fellowship- I miss seeing everyone but did not want to spread the "love" around so to speak :-)
As Christians (without children of our own) my
husband and I choose not to celebrate Halloween, so even though the photo inspiration is a very cute Frankenstein basket, I chose to use the colors from the
photo as my inspiration along with this week’s color palette (and I was even able to
add the “dessert” of thanks).
you have not done so, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above sites to
check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!
create this easy card:
the retired hostess stamp image from Ageless Adornment using Memento™ Tuxedo
Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
an AquaPainter™ with Classic Ink, color the blossom with Rich Razzleberry, the
stems and leaves with Mossy Meadow and the background with Soft Suede and add
additional details with the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers. Apply Titanium White Acrylic Paint to the
flower center (or just be careful not to paint this center with Rich
Razzleberry- duh! :-)).
the AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint to the Soft Suede
background and part of the petals (you cannot see this shimmer well in the
photo but it is there) and once dry, carefully fussy-cut around the image and
the “thank you” only portion of the stamp from Me=Grateful with the Soft Suede
Stampin’ Write Marker and stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White
the panel to 4” x 5 ¼” and use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score the lines
around the image.
the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink, stamp
off on scrap paper and repeatedly stamp onto the panel.
the panel onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, trim and mount onto the Rich
Razzleberry card base.
the Silver Thread to the card front and mount the focal image with dimensional
foam to cover the thread.
