How's It Growing?
I hope all of you had a great Father’s Day weekend!! I am so thankful that my father is still alive and he had safe travels to his home in Florida. Although we have not seen each other in a while, I was able to talk with him today on the phone and he is doing as well as possible:-)
Today I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog today and wanted to share with you here as well.
This Clean and Layered (CAL) card was designed using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) set Winnie’s Garden (designed by Wynne Gettelfinger) using the Mojo Monday Mojo452 Sketch Challenge (I decided to flip the sketch and it is too late to link to their gallery:-)).
If you have not had a chance to stop by the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog or the Mojo Monday Challenge site, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all of my Creative Team Sisters as well as the fabulous Mojo Monday gallery!
Ink the girl image with flowers from Winnie’s Garden (SNSS) with Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink onto watercolor paper and heat set the ink with the Heat Tool.
Color the stamped image using Stampin’ Write Markers with an AquaPainter™- Dapper Denim (jeans and head scarf), Hello Honey (hair), Blushing Bride with Sweet Sugarplum (tee shirt), Real Red (tulips and lips), Garden Green (leaves), Rich Razzleberry with Sweet Sugarplum (large flower) and Blushing Bride with Sweet Sugarplum (remaining flowers).
Use the AquaPainter™ with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Markers- Salty Ocean (sky) and Mowed Lawn (grass) to create the landscape.
Die cut the image using the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Stitched Square Dies and mount onto Dapper Denim cardstock (trimming close to the die cut to create a thin frame).
Repeat the above steps for the sentiment from Winnie's Garden as well.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock (scrap piece in my stash) along with a piece of retired Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi Designer Series paper mounted onto a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock.
Layer the embossed DSP onto the Dapper Denim card front and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
Die cut a piece of Home Sweet Home Graphic 45® Designer Paper with the MFT Stitched Circle Die (also die-cutting a piece of Dapper Denim)- layer the two together and adhere to the card front.
Add the Winnie’s Garden focal image panel along with the embossed Dapper Denim strip (per the sketch) and mount the layered sentiment with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
