#RRCB53 Christmas Blessings To You
Woohoo! I am super excited to be the Guest Designer for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #53 Color Challenge!
One of the perks of playing along with the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog is that if you are chosen as the challenge favorite, you have the opportunity to guest design for one of their future challenges!
One of the rules of The Retro Rubber Challenge Blog is that you need to use stamps that are over a year old so I pulled out two retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets- Winter Memories for the sled image and Christmas Blessings for the sentiment (both are several years old).
I am also linking this card to the Simon Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler, then again onto Garden Green cardstock.
Add the white crochet lace and ½” Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, wrapping the ends around the panel.
Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base.
Ink the retired sled image from Winter Memories using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink, stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and water color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede and Pool Party using an AquaPainter™.
Use the Heat Tool to dry the watercolor panel, add white highlights with an extra fine white paint pen ad die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.
Mount the watercolor panel onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and mount onto Garden Green cardstock and add to the card front with dimensional foam.
Finish off the card with the ½” Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding bow, sentiment and pearls.
