CC551 When I Pray, You Answer Me!

Hi Friends!!

I am so excited to the Guest Designer for the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers for the month of October!!  I love participating in the Splitcoaststampers weekly challenges and am honored to be part of this fabulous Design Team for October!

This Mixed Media card was created for this week’s CC551 Color Challenge (dessert option to use florals)- actually this was a panel that I thought I would have to trash but saved by adding a few layers of paint and distress ink.

I just love this Scripture and it has meant so much to me over the years and especially this past year.  

As many of you know, my husband is undergoing chemo for a rare non-Hodgkins lymphoma and this past week, his test results came back favorable!  We know that this is due to the prayers of many on our behalf and the Lord has answered us!  No, his cancer is not gone and no, there is  not a cure but yes, the Lord has allowed my husband to be on target and his blood numbers to be where the doctor would like them to be at this stage of the chemo- Praise the Lord!!

Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the CC551 gallery to check out the rest of the fabulous Design Team creations as well as wonderful entries in the challenge gallery- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Apply Gesso® using the serrated edge of a plastic knife to create texture on a piece of cardstock, and once the Gesso® dries, apply a few drops of Soft White along with Light Village Green Folk Art® Acrylic Paint over the panel.  Spread with a paint brush and allow to dry (I use a Heat Tool to speed up the drying process).

Once the panel is dry, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Peeled Paint Distress Stain, lightly spritz with water, spread a bit with your fingers and dry with the Heat Tool.

the background panel and apply Wendy Vecchi® Crackled Texture Paste with a palette knife- carefully heat with the Heat Tool to dry.

Once dried, apply more Ranger® Tim Holtz® Peeled Paint Distress Stain along with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain over the stenciled area, dry with the Heat Tool.

Once this layer is dry, ink the retired Script background stamp from Stampin’ Up! using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and randomly stamp onto the background panel.

Trim the panel and stitch onto a piece of So Saffron cardstock.
Add the piece of retired Afternoon Tea DSP to the lower part of the card front and stitch to the card front.

Add the crochet lace and 1” So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon strip and mount the panel onto the card base.

Ink the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) verse from Scripture Collection 2 onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Cut out using the Big Shot™ with the ODBD Stitched Ovals Die and add a bit of distressing with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous

Grunge using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink as well as a bit of Victorian Velvet Distress Stain.

Mount the sentiment oval onto the card front using dimensional foam.
Create the roses from Blushing Bride and So Saffron cardstock using My Favorite Things™ (MFT) Royal and Mini Royal Rose Dies, use the Crimper Tool to add distressing, roll the flowers up and adhere the centers with adhesive (I prefer Hot Glue). 

Create the leaves from Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the Martha Stewart Leaf Punch and add the roses with the leaves to the card front using Hot Glue.

To finish off the card, add a few Pearls to the corner as well as to the oval Scripture layer.
