SC689 Thanks Be Unto God
It’s time for the weekly sketch at Splitcoaststampers! Carey is our #SC689 sketch designer this week and she has created a fun sketch for sure!
I decided to use a verse from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps What A Savior stamp set for a Christmas card :-)
We are having a major snow storm here on the East Coast (more snow in the last 24 hours than we have received all winter) and it is the first day of spring!!
So with the crazy weather, I thought snowflakes would work well for the diagonal element (layer #3) and used a Memory Box die that I had purchased a few months ago and had not had a chance to use yet :-)
I am also linking this card to the Try Stamping on Tuesday March Techique “Embossing” Challenge and the A Bit More Time to Craft “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Splitcoaststampers’ Sketch gallery or other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). On a piece of white cardstock, use sponge daubers to apply Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Inks. Once you have blended the colors, lightly spritz water over the panel and dry with a heat tool.
2), Use the Big Shot™ with the Memory Box™ Snowflake Swell Die to die cut another piece of white cardstock.
3). De-static the upper left hand corner with an embossing powder tool, ink the verse from What A Savior with embossing ink, stamp onto the panel and heat set with white embossing powder. Once the embossing powder has cooled, sponge Broken China and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink over the embossing, lightly wipe off the excess from the embossing with a dry cloth or paper towel and lightly spritz with water.
4). Mount the snowflake panel onto the oxide background and trim. Mount the entire panel onto a piece of denim cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.
5). Apply shimmer to the snowflakes with a clear glitter pen and add a few Ivory Seashell Nuvo™ Crystal Drops to finish off the card.
