TCC49 A Friend Loves At All Times



Hi Friends!!

It’s time for new TheCard Concept #TCC49 Floral Radiance Challenge!  I just love this spring inspiration photo with all of the beautiful flowers and glass- I was inspired by the colors, flowers and glass for my Mixed Media card!

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.  

I also linked this card to the Just Us Girls #330 Trend Week (Add a Tag) Challenge :-)

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 gallery at Just Us Girls- fabulous inspiration from all!

This background for this card was created by applying Gelatos®, Distress Inks and Brusho® to a piece of Watercolor Paper, drying between layers, add Gesso® with the MB Fishnet Stencil, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

On another piece of Watercolor Paper, apply orange, yellow and pink Gelatos®, dry with a Heat Tool, prep the paper with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the flower with Versamark™ Ink, apply Black Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder, heat set with the Heat Tool and fussy cut the flower.  Add Clear Wink of Stella® to the petals (difficult to see in the photo).

Create the leaves in the same manner using Green Gelatos™ and add to the card front using dimensional foam.

Heat emboss the sentiment using Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder onto Basic Black cardstock, punch out with the Note Punch and mount onto the card front using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Choose Happiness, Blessed by God

Ink: Ranger® Tim Holtz® broken China, Faded Jeans  Distress Stains; Gelatos®- Metallic Blue, Blueberries, Orange, Lemon, Pink, Brusho® Turquoise; Faber-Castell® Pitt Penn White Marker; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolor

Accessories: Gesso®, MB Fishnet Stencil, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® White and Black Embossing Powder, Water Spritzer
