CAS A Woman Who Fears the Lord

Hi Friends!

This card was designed using the CAS Colours and Sketches #169 Sketch Challenge (I flipped the sketch :-)) along with Kath's #63 Color Challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers' CAS373 "It's About Birthdays" Challenge (this card is for one of the ladies in our Bible Study group).  

I hope you will take the time to visit the above linked sites- so much inspiration!

To create this card:

Ink the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri, flower and branches from Choose Happiness using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Color the butterflies with the Stampin’ Write So Saffron marker and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

Color the branches with the Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write marker and the flowers with the Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write markersm fussy-cut the images and add white to the center with the Faber-Castell® Pitt Pen White Marker.

Using the Smakin’ Acetate technique, press the Blushing Bride Classic Ink pad against the acetate, spritz with water, lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock down into the ink and lift up the cardstock (pressing in the ink to remove from the acetate).

Ink the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD)  Scripture Collection 4 with Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink, stamp onto the background panel and add a few splatters with Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink using the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures. 

Trim the panel, mount onto Watermelon Wonder cardstock, trim and mount onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Using the dot image from Timeless Textures, stamp with Watermelon Wonder onto the pieces of Watermelon Wonder cardstock, trim and mount onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

Adhere the layered Watermelon Wonder pieces to the card front per the sketch and mount the branches, flowers and butterflies.

Add the Pearls to the butterfly centers to finish off the card.

I know this does not appear as a “normal” birthday card but since the sentiment is not the traditional "Happy Birthday" that the recipient could display this throughout the year versus just for a few days :-)

Stamp Sets: Choose Happiness, Papillon Potpourri, Timeless Textures (Stampin’ Up!), Scripture Collection 4 (ODBD)

Ink: Versamark™, Watermelon Wonder; Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Watermelon Wonder; Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker

Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Watermelon Wonder

Accessories: Acetate, Water Spritzer Bottle, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!

Hi Julie, as much as I enjoy seeing your beautifully crafted cards, I enjoy reading your instructions equally. There is always something new to be learned. I have never heard of the Smakin' Acetate technique but am now anxious to try it after seeing the results in the background detail of your card. As pretty as the background is, the foreground is stunning. Love the colouring you've done on the flower and butterflies. An excellent "blending" of the challenges. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

That's a very cool technique for the background. It makes a perfect canvas to show off the main stars of this card - the butterflies and flower. Love it all! Thanks for playing along with the Watercooler Challenge.
