SC600 Floral Sympathy
Woohoo- it’s time for the new SC600 sketch at Splitcoaststampers! This is such a fun sketch and wow, our Design Team did a fabulous job with showing off the versatility!
I pulled out a few retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets, Element of Style and Bloom with Hope along with Distress Oxide/Distress Inks for a quick Media card.
I also incorporated the House of Cards August 2017 "Floral Images and/or Colors" Challenge along with the Word Art Wednesday #296-#297 “Anything Goes” Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to check out the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Gallery or the other challenge galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- as always, gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using Tim Holtz® Distress Oxide Inks, press the Picked Raspberry pad onto a silicone craft mat, lightly spritz with water, lay a piece of white cardstock into the ink, lift up and press again. Dry with a heat tool and repeat the process using Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves. Once you are satisfied with the background, spritz water over the ink, press lightly with a paper towel and dry with the heat tool.
2). De-static the background with an embossing powder tool, ink the Elements of Style stamp set with an archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.
3). Use the AquaPainter™ with ink from Tim Holtz® Distress Ink pads- Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry to watercolor the flowers and the surrounding background around the flowers. Color the leaves with the Mowed Lawn TH Distress Marker. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim close to the edge.
4). Trim a piece of white cardstock, mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, adhere the entire panel to the white card base.
5). Die cut and emboss the scroll corners from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using a Big Shot™ with the Shapeablilites© Fleur de Lis Accents dies, wrap around the corners (per the sketch) and mount the panel onto the card front using dimensional foam.
6). Stamp the sentiment from Bloom with Hope using archival black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder, heat set with the heat tool and create the fish tail banner (I used a retired hexagon punch). Mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and adhere directly to the card front.
7). Add white accents to the flower centers with an extra fine white paint pen and shimmer to the flower petals with a clear glitter pen. Add a few pearls to the corners to finish off the card.
