A Friend Loveth At All Times

Hi Friends!

I am finally getting a chance to share this card that I designed with the June Stamp of the Month, Texture Tiles 2 along with the previously released stamp set, Peaceful Peonies from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

I incorporated the Splitcoaststampers CC688 Color Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “AnythingGoes” 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- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the large blossom image from Peaceful Peonies with archival black ink onto the panel, apply clear embossing and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image using water-based markers and fussy-cut.

2). Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched die, stamp the Texture Tiles2 brick wall image using hickory smoke distress ink, heat set with a heat tool.  De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Peonies using archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

3). Die cut a piece of slate cardstock using a stitched rectangle die, mount along with the stamped texture panel and an old olive textured panel (also die cut with a stitched rectangle  mount all onto a piece of black cardstock.  Add a strip of black satin ribbon (wrapping the ends behind the panel) and mount onto a white card base.

4). Mount the fussy-cut peony image onto the card front with dimensional foam.  Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals and a few white highlights to the stamens with a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen to finish off the card.
