TCC59 "Give Thanks"
Today we have the brand new SC613 Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers as well as the new TCC59 “Sweet Treats” Inspiration Challenge at The Card Concept!
I have designed a vintage shabby chic creation inspired by the colors of the ice cream and I flipped the sketch to fit the design of the pretty background paper.
I am also linking this card to a few other favorite online challenges- Word Art Wednesday #250-#251 "Anything Goes" Challenge as well as the Inkspirational #118 "Glamour" Challenge.
I hope you will find the time to visit my Design Team sisters at The Card Concept along with the Splitcoaststampers SC613 Sketch Challenge as well as the rest of the inspiration at the other challenge sites :-)
To create this card:
Ink the sentiment from the Verve Stamps, Scripture Medley 3 with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Die cut the sentiment panel with the Spellbinders™Timeless Rectangles Dies (I used the medium frame), apply Gathered Twigs Distress Ink with a sponge dauber over the edges and stamp a bit of distressing with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures (Stampin’ Up!).
Use a Distressing Tool to distress the edges of the piece of Kirby Teesdale Paper Pack (Paper Studio) designer paper, mount onto a piece of Rose Red cardstock, trim and distress the edges before mounting onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (distressing the edges of the Early Espresso base as well).
Adhere the entire panel onto the white card base.
Cut strips of another piece of Kirby Teesdale Paper Pack (Paper Studio) designer paper (the pink scroll and a pink doily design) as well as the scrap pieces from the background panel, distress and add to Rose Red cardstock, layering onto Early Espresso as well.
Layer the horizontal and vertical strips per the sketch and mount the sentiment die cut with dimensional foam.
Die cut the flowers from Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach cardstock using the Big Shot™ with MFT™ Scallop Rose Die, use a crimper tool to break down the fibers a bit on the die cut flowers, roll up and adhere with adhesive on the bottom (I like to use hot glue for this step).
Punch the leaves from mossy green textured cardstock (from my stash) using the Martha Stewart® Leaf Punch, add the leaves with the roses to the card front (again, I used hot glue for this step).
Use the Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen to add glitter to the roses and color the flowers and leaves on the dress form image using Stampin’ Write Markers- Peekaboo Peach and Wild Wasabi.
Add a few pearls to finish off the card.
