CAS With Gratitude

Hi Stampers!!

I decided to take a break from the shabby chic/vintage style that I tend to gravitate towards and create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using some newer stamps as well as some of my favorite retired sets :-)

I hope you will have a chance to visit the challenge sites- fantastic Design Team samples and great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the leave stamp from the retired set Botanicals using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and also stamp onto a piece of scrap paper or sticky note to create a mask.

Mask the leave and stamp the script stamp from the retired set Botanicals using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink over the leave image.

Color the leave using the Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Pumpkin Pie Collection and create shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker.

Re-mask the leaf, ink the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the image.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.

Mount the leaf panel onto the Basic Black card base and add the Black Hemp Twine bow onto the card front (I used Hot Glue but Mini Glue Dots™ would work as well).

Add the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Botanicals (retired), With Gratitude (retired)

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink , Stampin’ Blendabilities Pumpkin Pie Collection, Stampin’ Write Sahara Sand marker

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black

Accessories: Hexagon Punch, retired Black Hemp Twine

Thanks again for stopping by- have a great evening!

When I read that you masked the leaf and stamped the background I was really surprised...the leaf looks so 3D that I thought it was an attachment! This is a gorgeous card. I'm also impressed with the Bible verse book you've created..really beautiful.
