Faith Makes the Impossible Possible
Hi Sweet Friends!
I hope all of you are having a great week! I had a chance to play with a few of Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps new January release stamp sets and created quite a few cards!
Several of the stamp sets are silhouettes which are perfect for scenes for so many occasions as well as masculine cards- paired with a sentiment stamp set and you have endless possibilities!
I will be sharing the cards in separate posts plus this month Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps is offering the Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands stamp set free with any $60 order!! The stamp set is not available for purchase yet but will be in February but what a fabulous gift for the month of January!!
My first card features the Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands stamp set along with the Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass and Faith and since I love to play along with online challenges, I incorporated the Atlantic Hearts #245 Sketch, the INKSpirational #151 “Stamping Only” Challenge and the "Simon Says: Something New” Monday Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using Distress Inks, apply the ink to a silicone craft mat, lightly spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink. Lift up and repeat the process until you are satisfied with the result. Trim the panel to 3” x 3”.
2). Once the panel has dried, de-static the paper with an embossing powder tool, ink and stamp the images from Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands and the Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass stamp sets with an archival black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, re-ink the cattails from Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass with black distress ink and stamp over the embossed images. Use a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pento add water ripples below the fish image.
3). Ink the sentiment from Faith with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Trim the panel, mount onto black cardstock.
4). Cut the scene panel into three 1” sections and re-cut each section again so you have nine 1” pieces. Mount the pieces onto the card front with dimensional foam.
5). Stamp the duck image from Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands with archival black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder, heat set with a heat tool. Once cooled, fussy cut the image and add to the card front.
6). Finish off the card with crystal jewel drops.
