TCC67 Friendship is a Journey


Hi Friends!!

It’s time for The Card Concept #67 “Vintage” Challenge!  I love the vintage elements in our inspiration photo- the heart, metal tin, script background, browns as well as the gold!  

I decided to create a Mixed Media Shabby Chic card using retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, French Script and Friendship’s Journey.  I love the vintage images and these stamps will remain part of my collection for years to come!

I decided to incorporate the  Happy Little Stampers February 2017 Mixed Media Challenge “Tear/Rip” into the design.

I hope you will find the time to check out the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the HLS challenge gallery- gorgeous inspiration from all!


To create this card:

1). Ink the retired Stampin’ Up! French Script background stamp using TH Ground Espresso Distress Ink, stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, distress the edges with a distressing tool and apply TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink  with a sponge dauber over the edges.

2). De-static a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the retired Stampin’ Up! Friendship’s Journey image with Versamark™ Ink onto the prepared cardstock, apply  Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat set with the heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, water color with TH Brushed Cordoruy, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks and apply TH Tarnished Brass Distress Stain to the heart, locket, flowers and other areas.

3). Hand tear around the entire panel, sponge additional TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the edges and mount onto the distressed script panel.

4). Mount the entire panel onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, distress the edges with a distressing tool before mounting onto the white card base.

5). De-static a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Friendship’s Journey with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Trim the panel and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

6). Use an Extra Fine White Sharpie® Paint Pen to add white highlights to the flowers and finish off the card with a few pearls.

Stamp Sets: Friendship’s Journey, French Script (both retired Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Versamark®, TH Distress Inks- Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy, Ground Espresso, Walnut Stain; TH Tarnessed Brass Distress Stain, Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen

Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

Accessories: AquaPainter™, Sponge Dauber, Distressing Tool, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold and retired Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Pearls

I've always liked this stamp, but have not used it in a while. You have inspired me to get it out and make a card. Lovely example of shabby chic. I follow your blog. Thank you.
