HYCCT1531B So Very Blessed
This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1531B Dina’s “Orange You Glad...?”Challenge to use her inspiration board with shades of orange for your card and I am also linking this card to the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
I decided to pull out another long ago retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Pretty Petals (which I am ashamed to say has never been inked before) along with a new Mama Elephant set (at least new to me) that I have not had a chance to ink yet as well- again, too many stamps and too little time:-)
I hope you will have time to visit both galleries and check out all of the wonderful inspiration!
To create this card:
Ink the floral images onto Whisper White cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and color with an AquaPainter™ using Tangerine Tango and Calypso Coral Classic Ink.
Add additional detail with the Stampin’ Write Markers in the same colors as above and when you are satisfied with the blossoms, fill in the background with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker and shadows with a Black Watercolor Pencil.
Use Titanium White Acrylic Paint for the stamen accents, trim the images and mount onto Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp the script from the retired Strength and Hope stamp set using Tangerine Tango, add the Mama Elephant sentiments using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the panel and mount onto the Basic Black card front.
Adhere the floral images using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Pretty Petals, Strength and Hope (both retired Stampin’ Up!), Blessings (Mama Elephant)
Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Tangerine Tango, Calypso Coral; Stampin’ Markers- Tangerine Tango, Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate; Black Watercolor Pencil, White Titanium Acrylic Paint
