I hope all of you are having a great week so far! We are celebrating the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps March 2017 Release later today and this card was designed with the new SNSS Peaceful Peonies ClearStamp Set designed by NinaB Designs.
As you know, I love to participate in online challenges so I incorporated the Freshly Made Sketches FMS277 Sketch Challenge along with the Sunday Stamps "SSC147 Cottage Colors" Challenge, the Stampin’ Royalty #364 “Fav Technique” Challenge (watercolor) and The Daily Marker 30 DayColoring Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to visit the SNSS Blog, SNSS Facebook page or the other challenge site yet, I highly encourage you to do so! Inspiration is posted throughout the week on the SNSS Blog and FB Page from my sisters on the SNSS Creative Team and the other challenge sites have fabulous DT and galleries as well!
1). Use a stencil brush with flourish stencil to apply tumbled glass distress ink to a piece of white cardstock, trim the panel, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim and moutn onto the white card base.
2). Use a stencil brush with the same flourish stencil to apply tumbled glass distress ink to another piece of white cardstock, die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge and add to the card front (per the sketch).
3). Ink the SNSS Peaceful Peonies image with embossing ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and heat emboss with black embossing powder. Once the powder has cooled, color the image with water-based markers and a water brush, layering color carefully without too much water so the paper will not “pill”.
4). Fussy cut the floral image close to the embossing, cut the leaves off the edges and split the flower near the bottom. Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals on the floral image.
5). Heat emboss the sentiment from the SNSS Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, trim the panel.
6). Position the leaves and adhere directly to the card front, add the flower image and sentiment with dimensional foam.
7). Add a few rhinestones to finish off the card.
I had a great time designing with this card:-) Hugs and thanks again for taking the time to stop by! I hope all of you have a blessed weekend, sweet friends!
