SC606- ODBD Thanks A Melon
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! It’s time for the new Splitcoaststampers’ SC606 Sketch Challenge and I decided to create this card using some of the brand new August mid-month release stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.
In addition to the SC606 Sketch Challenge (I flipped the sketch), I incorporated the Splitcoaststampers' CC596 Color Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #244-#245 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not already visited the above challenge sites, I hope you will have a chance to do so- fabulous inspiration from my Design Team Sisters at the SCS Sketch Gallery as well as the wonderful samples at the SCS Color Gallery and Word Art Wednesday challenge site!
To create this card:
Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Flourished Star Patterns Die, mount onto a piece of melon cardstock, trim close to the edge and mount onto the black card front.
Ink the Thanks A Melon watermelon images with archival black ink, stamp onto a panel of white cardstock, heat set and color with water-based markers, add white highlights with a white paint pen and die cut the panel with the ODBD Leafy Edged Borders Die.
Gently apply ModPodge to the surface of the die cut panels and set aside to dry (be careful not to apply to heavy or the ink may run).
Die cut and emboss a few pieces of white cardstock with the ODBD Flower Lattice Die (you will need four strips in all), position in the center of the card panel using dimensional foam and mount the stamped panels per the sketch (also using dimensional foam).
Stamp a few more of the watermelon images from Thanks A Melon with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock (color in the same manner as noted above for the background panel but do not add the ModPodge), die cut with the ODBD Watermelon Dies and add sparkle with a clear glitter pen.
Stamp the sentiment from Thanks A Melon with archival black ink onto white cardstock, die cut and emboss with the ODBD Mini Tag Dies (also die cutting a tag from black cardstock using the same size die), layer the black tag behind the sentiment and mount the layered tag onto the card front with dimensional foam.
Add the black gingham bow to finish off the card.
I hope this card inspires you to create a project this week and if so, come play along with us at Splitcoaststampers!
Thanks again for visiting- hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
