TCC48 Mixed Media Love You

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for new The Card Concept #TCC48 "Sweet Hearts" Challenge!    Isn’t this a gorgeous collection of heart cookies- too pretty to eat for sure!  

I hope you have a chance to visit us at The Card Concept and check out the rest of our Design Team samples as well as the other challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!

Just a reminder that 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.  

To create this card:

Apply Clear Gesso® to a piece of Whisper White cardstock (I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I had printed some Scripture from Psalms and decided that I was unhappy with my Bible Journaling on that page, so I cut the paper into A2 size panels and used one of those panels for this project).

Once the gesso has dried, apply Titanium White Acrylic Paint over the surface, add a bit of pink and melon Gelatos® along with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Stains, allowing the stains to merge with the Gelatos® and dry with a Heat Tool.

Place the Memory Box™ Pattern Heartwood Stencil over the panel, use a dampened paper towel to remove some of the ink and dry with the Heat Tool.

Ink the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures (Stampin’ Up!) using Rose Red Classic Ink and stamp over the surface.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, trim the Crumb Cake layer and mount onto Whisper White cardstock.

Adhere a strip of Whisper White cardstock mounted onto Rose Red cardstock across the upper portion of the panel, add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon  and adhere the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.

Mount the entire panel onto a piece of Rose Red cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits™ (Stampin’ Up!) to cut a heart from Whisper White cardstock and one from Rose Red cardstock.

Also, from the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits ™ cut two of the large flowers and three of the smaller flowers from Whisper White cardstock.
Mount the Rose Red Bloomin’ Heart die cut directly to the card front and add the White Bloomin’ Heart die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals®, offsetting the die cut a bit to show the Rose Red layer.

Add the white flowers to the Bloomin’ Heart die along with Pearls for the centers and a row of Pearls in the center of the Satin Ribbon.

Stamp the sentiment from Short & Sweet (retired Stampin’ Up!) with Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, create the banner using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto Rose Red cardstock (also punching the ends with the Hexagon Punch).

Add the sentiment to the card front (tucking under the flowers) using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet (retired), Timeless Textures

Ink: Ranger® Tim Holtz® Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries  Distress Stains; Gelatos®, Titanium White Acrylic Paint

Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Rose Red

Accessories: Clear Gesso®, Matte Gel, Big Shot™,  Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits™, Hexagon Punch, Pattern Heartwood Stencil (MB), Pearls, 5/8” Satin Ribbon
