Let's Do This!
I am having a great time creating cards with the May release from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I used two of the new stamp sets, Refresh My Soul and Let’s Do This for this quick mixed media card. I love the images and sentiments in both of these sets- perfect for cards, scrapbooking, Bible Art Journaling, gifts and home decor!
Just a reminder, you can receive the Sweet ‘n Sassy StampsMay Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts free with a net $75 US$ order (after all discounts and before shipping) plus any net $75 US receives free shipping!
I am linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #334-#335 “Anything Goes”Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Word Art Wednesday or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock (die cut with the next size rectangle die). Use a stitched horizontal die to die cut a piece of designer paper and mount onto a piece of black cardstock (die cut with the next largest stitched horizontal die). Add the horizontal layer onto the panel (I had to cut it in half to fit the card), trim the edges and mount onto a white card base.
2). Die cut a piece of black cardstock with a pierced tag die, de-static with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiments/images from Let’s Do This with Versamark™ ink, stamp onto the prepared panel, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
3). Mount the tag image to the card front with dimensional foam and add the 3/8” black and white gingham ribbon bow.
4). De-static a piece of white cardstock, stamp the cacti images from Refresh My Soul using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing cools, watercolor the images with water-based markers and fussy-cut. Mount the cacti to the card front with dimensional foam.
5). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the images and a few rhinestones to finish off the card.
