In His Word I Put My Trust




Hi Again Friends!

I wanted to create another fairly quick card using the Splitcoaststampers (SCS) TLC588 “Stencil Monoprint” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the CAS379 “May Flowers” Challenge and the Just Us Girls #345 Photo Week Challenge.  

This was a fun technique and I will have to try this again with some of my other stencils:-)

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous cards and inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

Using the SCS Stencil Monoprints tutorial (see here), apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks directly to the back of the Texture Flourish stencil from Memory Box™.

Lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the stencil and use your hand or a clean towel to rub the ink from the stencil onto the paper (I found this to be easier than flipping the stencil over onto my paper).

Use a Heat Tool to dry the ink, de-static the area for the sentiment with an Embossing Buddy®, ink the verse from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Scripture Collection 9 and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder.

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

Ink the flowers from Fragrance (ODBD) using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink, heat set with the Heat Tool and color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Pink Pirouette, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry.

Carefully fussy-cut the images and mount onto the card front (I used dimensional foam for the lower two blossoms).

Add Clear Wink of Stella® to the blossoms and use the Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Gold and White Markers to add highlights to the flower centers.

Add the Pearls to the opposite corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Fragrance, Scripture Collection 9 (Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink: Versamark™, Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black ; Stampin’ Write Markers- Pink Pirouette, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry ; Ranger® Tim Holtz® Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks; Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen Gold and White Markers; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Extra Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Crushed Curry

Accessories: Memory Box™ Texture Flourish Stencil, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pearls

Oh, Julie, this is an absolutely stunning card, and I love the stencil technique for this week's challenge that you did! Wow, it's a gorgeous background, and I love these ODBD flowers and how you've popped some of them. So beautiful, and then with this beautiful Scripture verse - that's the perfect finishing touch! I love it! Big hugs, sweet friend!
