2). Using a red water-based marker, scribble the ink onto a craft mat and watercolor the “heart” with a water brush. Once dry, apply shimmer with a clear glitter pen to the watercolored area and mount the die cut image onto a red cardstock die cut.

What A Savior
Today I am sharing a quick card designed using the February release stamp set, What A Savior from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
WhatA Savior along with several other stamp sets are part of the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps February release and the February stamp of the month is Hoppy Easter- how cute!!
For every $60 purchase (not including discounts or shipping), you can receive the Hoppy Easter stamp set free until the end of February. Plus, Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps has free shipping and handling on your $75 order (in the US) so what a great deal!!
I love playing along with weekly challenges and incorporated the Splitcoaststampers CC671 Color Challenge along with the Fab Friday #129 Sketch Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” 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). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the image from What A Savior with embossing ink, apply silver embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, die cut with a stitched circle die.
3). Trim a piece of red patterned paper along with the silver chevron paper for the background. Add a strip of red cardstock to the red patterned paper, mount the silver chevron paper onto the red card front and add the layered red panel.
4). Wrap two pieces of woven satin ribbon for the vertical element of the sketch, placing the ribbon ends behind the card front and adhere the entire panel onto a white card base.
5). Add the triple red ribbon bow to finish off the card.
