TCC60 All That We Behold is Full of Blessing
Woohoo! It’s time for the #60- Chevron Pumpkin Challenge at The Card Concept! Our inspiration photo is gorgeous and can be interpreted in so many ways- the colors, the chevron, the pumpkin, the sunfowers, the wood , the glass, the leaves, etc.
In fact, there is no right or wrong way when it comes to photo interpretation and we would love to see your card in our gallery!!
I was inspired by the sunflowers as well as the chevron and the colors- they remind me of fall and Thanksgiving! I decided to pull out a few retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets- Sunflower Serenade, Full of Blessings and Positively Chevron (background stamp) along with the current Timeless Textures to design this shabby chic card.
I am also incorporating the Splitcoaststampers SC615 Sketch Challenge as well as the WordArt Wednesday #252-#253 “Anything Goes” Challenge and the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #215 "Celebrating Fall" 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 other challenge sites- wonderful inspiration from all!!
To create this card:
Ink and stamp the Positively Chevron background onto retired Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) with Cajun Craze Classic Ink, trim and distress with the retired Distressing Tool and mount onto Early Espresso cardstock (distressing the edges of the Early Espresso cardstock layer as well).
Distress the edges of a strip of retired Orchard Harvest DSP, layer onto Early Espresso cardstock, mount onto the layered chevron background and add the 5/8” Rust Satin Triple Ribbon bow (wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the back of the layers) before adhering the entire panel onto the Cajun Craze card base.
Stamp the retired Sunflower Serenade image and the sentiment from the retired Full of Blessings stamp set with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, color with an AquaPainter™ using Derwent® Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink followed by a layer of Picket Fence Distress Ink (to tone down the brightness of the Tumbled Glass background).
Using the Big Shot™ with the MFT Stitched Oval STAX Dies, die cut the sunflower image along with an oval from the same size die from Early Espresso cardstock.
Split the Early Espresso oval die cut in half and layer behind the sunflower image.
Trim the sentiment and layer onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the edges of the sunflower and sentiment layer.
Ink the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, stamp off before stamping onto the sentiment and sunflower layers.
Finish off the card by adhering the sunflower and sentiment with dimensional foam and adding a bit of shimmer with a clear glitter pen to the centers of the sunflowers.
