Card Concept #27- Love is in the Air

Hi Stampers!!

I had fun creating this Mixed Media card for The Card Concept #27 Challenge using our wonderful photo for inspiration.  I was inspired by the woodgrain background along with the ombre colors of the “LOVE” Letters :-)

The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media.  

Since this card has hearts, I am also linking to the Splitcoaststampers MIX54 Mix-Ability Hearts Challenge from February 7, 2014 :-)

I hope you will have a chance to check out the rest of the Design Team projects and create your own project in one of the styles to join in on the fun!

To create this card:

Apply Gesso to a piece of Whisper White cardstock and allow it to dry (you can use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process).

Once dried, apply Gelatos™ (Bubble Gum and Guava) to the background, add water and use your finger to smooth onto the background.  

Apply Wendy Vecchi® Crackled Texture Paste to the background using the round circles in the Balzar Designs Mini Punchenella stencil- allow to dry (or use the Heat Tool to speed up the process).

Apply Ranger® Tm Holtz® Distress Stains- Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks and spritz with water- allow the ink to drain down the panel.

Continue to layer more ink adding Black Soot and Brushed Pewter Metallic Distress Stain.

Ink the Notable Notions script stamp using Jet Black Stāz-On® Ink and randomly stamp over the background.  Add Jim Holtz® Adirondack® Cranberry and Silver Alcohol Ink over the texture area and allow the ink to spread over the textured area.

Trim the panel and add the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware ribbon slid to the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon and mount to the background panel.

Mount the panel onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Basic Black card base.

Using My Digital Studio (MDS) to print out the hearts from the digital stamp brush set, Always and the sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) onto Whisper White cardstock.

Trim each word of the sentiment and mount each onto Basic Black cardstock.

Color one of the hearts using Worn Lipstick Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stain and use an AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint in the center of the remaining two hearts.   

Fussy-cut the hearts out and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (fussy-cutting around the hearts to create a frame).

Add the key trinket with a piece of metallic wire to one of the frosted hearts and the keyed heart along with the colored one at the lower part of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the letters to the remaining frosted heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and mount the heart over the ribbon at the top of the card.

Add the Frosted Sequins to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Always (MDS), Notable Notions, Teeny Tiny Wishes (MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Jet Black Stāz-On® Ink , Gelatos™ -Bubble Gum and Guava, Ranger® Tim Holtz® Picked Raspberry , Worn Lipstick, Black Soot and Silver Metallic Distress Stains; Jim Holtz® Adirondack® Cranberry and Silver Alcohol Ink, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Oh my goodness Julie! Your card is just stunning! I didn't get a chance to comment last week as I away but I wanted to say how amazing and detailed your cards always are. I agree we have a similar style and also found that we have board on pinterest dedicated to us - actually I think it was my mum who found it as she is always on there. She couldn't wait to tell me about - proud mum that she is!
