A Simple Thanks
I hope all of you are having a great New Year’s week so far! I had a chance to play around in my craft room last night and created a quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the new ODBD Seeds of Today stamp set along with the new ODBD Thanks Die (both from the January 2017 Our Daily Bread Designs Release ).
I love participating with online challenges and decided to incorporate the CAS(E) This Sketch #202 Sketch Challenge (I flipped the sketch) as well as the Splitcoaststampers' Clean and Simple "CAS410 Show Me Your New” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the ODBD Blog yet or the other challenge sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all of my DT Sister “Breadsticks” as well as the CTS and SCS CAS challenge galleries!
To create this card:
1). Ink the floral image from the ODBD Seeds of Today stamp set using embossing ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock (re-inking and stamping along the perimeter), apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
2). Once the embossing powder has cooled, use a stencil brush to apply lavender shades of distress ink, a sponge dauber to apply darker color around the flowers and gently wipe off the excess ink from the embossed areas with a slightly damp paper towel.
3). Die cut and emboss the panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and mount onto a white card base.
4). Die cut and emboss the ODBD Thanks Die from white and purple cardstock- three pieces from white and one from purple. Layer the die cuts as following- two layers of white, one purple and white on the final layer.
5). Mount the layered ODBD Thanks Die onto the card front and add a few rhinestones.
6). Finish off the card using a clear shimmer pen over the ODBD Thanks Die cut as well as on the embossed flower petals in the background.
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- I hope you have a very blessed week!
