Praying for You
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today we are celebrating the May Release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and I absolutely love all of the stamps in this new release!
There are so many versatile images and sentiments- perfect for all sorts of cards, scrapbooking, paper crafts, home décor as well as Bible Art Journaling!
I decided to create a mixed media card featuring the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts along with the new Refresh My Soul (Creative Worship) stamp set and the previously released stamp set, Texture Tiles I using the Match The Sketch #226 Challenge for the layout and also participating with the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
Plus, if you love the new release as much as I do, you can order the May Release Early Bird Pre-Order for $75 (US$) and save over $10 plus receive the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts free along with free shipping and handling- what a great deal!
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- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the various cactus images from Refresh My Soul with archival black ink onto the prepared cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Watercolor the images with water-based markers and fussy-cut each image.
2). Die cut a stitched circle from a piece of white cardstock.
3). On a silicone mat, press peeled paint distress ink onto the mat, lightly spritz with water, press the remainder of the die cut panel of white cardstock (from step #2 above) into the ink, lift and continue to repeat until you are satisfied with the background. Repeat the process and press the actual die cut circle into the ink as well. Dry all thoroughly with a heat tool.
4). Add a bit of distressing with the splatter image from Texture Tiles I using archival black ink, die cut the main panel with a stitched rectangle die and mount onto a piece of black cardstock (die cut with a larger stitched rectangle die).
5). Mount the entire card front onto a white card base.
6). De-static the die cut circle with an embossing powder tool, stamp the “Praying” sentiment from Scripty Thoughts with archival black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Mount onto a die cut circle from black cardstock and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam (covering up the original circle area that was die cut).
7). De-static a scrap piece of black cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the “For You” sentient from Scripty Thoughts with embossing ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Create the fishtail banner by hand and mount onto the card front. Add the two cactus images onto the circle with dimensional foam and mount the cactus at the lower righthand corner directly to the card front.
8). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the floral areas of the cacti and finish off the card with a few crystal drops.
