The Fragrance of Christ

Hi Friends!

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!  I just love the images in the July 2016 release from Our Daily BreadDesigns and decided to create a quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the new stamp set, A True Friend along with the previously released stamp sets, Fragrance and Chalkboard Fan Background.


If you have not had a chance to visit any of the above challenge sites yet, I highly encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the iris image from the ODBD A True Friend  onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and use an AquaPainter™ along with Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay) to watercolor the image (I alos used the Smoky Slate marker for a few shadows).

Fussy-cut the flower, apply Clear Wink of Stella® to the petals (I also applied Frost White Shimmer Paint) and use a bone folder to curl the petals.

Using the Big Shot™, die cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock using the ODBD Leafy EdgedBorder Dies – one with just the curved smaller scallop border die and the other with the curved ornate border.

Ink the ODBD Chalkboard Fan Background stamp with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, stamp onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, clean the stamp, re-ink with Daffodil Delight and use your fingers to sporadically ink the die cut piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment from the ODBD Fragrance stamp set with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, layer the die cut pieces of Whisper White cardstock onto the Bermuda Bay card base and add the watercolored iris image with dimensional foam to finish off the card.


Ink/Mediums: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Bermuda Bay Classic Ink  (Stampin’ Up); Stampin’ Write Markers- Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate; Clear Wink of Stella®, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay (Stampin’ Up!)

Tools/Accessories: Big Shot™, ODBD Leafy Edged Border Dies, AquaPainter™

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and God Bless!
