Faith Quote Blocks- Great Hearts by Great Troubles
We are continuing to celebrate the 9th Birthday at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and I hope you are able to stop by the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog for additional inspiration and the SNSS Facebook page to check out the daily and weekly specials in honor of the celebration!
Today I am sharing another card with the new November Release set, Faith Quote Blocks Clear Stamp Set (designed by NinaB Designs) along with the previously released SNSS Decorative Frames Clear Stamp Set on the SNSS Blog and wanted to share it with you as well.
Since my card uses more than two mediums, I consider it a Clean and Simple (CAS) or Clean and Layered (CAL) Mixed Media card and trust me, it was fairly simple to create.
Also, one of my very favorite online challenge sites, Pals Paper Arts decided to close their challenge site (I am truly going to miss the inspiration from these talented designers), so I searched online for a few new challenges and decided to incorporate this week's Match The Sketch#149 Challenge :-)).
I loved this sketch as well as their wonderful Design Team and gallery of entries and hope to play along again soon!
To create this card:
Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a heart patterned embossing folder, trim and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.
Mount the small scrap of black cardstock (per the sketch) onto the card base and add the strip of 5/8” black satin ribbon along with the 3/8” black and white gingham ribbon (wrapping the ribbon ends behind the panel).
Add the layered decorative kraft patterned paper panel onto the card front and mount the entire card front onto the white card base.
Stamp the SNSS Decorative Frames Clear Stamp image with Versamark™ ink onto a piece of black cardstock (don’t forget to de-static with an Embossing Buddy® first), apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, position the SNSS Faith Quote Blocks image into the center of the frame, stamp with Versamark™ ink, apply heat emboss with white embossing powder, once cooled fussy-cut the image and apply white craft ink to mimic chalk dust (I used my finger).
Create the rolled flowers from rust cardstock (I already had these in my stash ready to go) and add to the card front along with the leaves.
Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the roses to finish off the card.
