TCC76 Strength For Today

Hi Friends!

It’s time for The Card Concept #76 “Romantic Roses” Challenge! Isn’t this a beautiful inspiration photo?  

I love the deep red roses as well as the black and white and was inspired to create a Shabby Chic/Elegant and Classy card.   

I decided to create a Shabby Chic/Elegant & Classy card with a "sneak peek" of a brand new stamp set, Hymn Blocks (designed by NinaB Designs) - this stamp will be part of the July release from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (available the first Friday in July) and wow, I cannot wait for you to see the rest of the hymn blocks in this new set!  It has a wonderful selection of hymns perfect for card making as well as Bible Art Journaling, scrapbooking, home decor and so much more!!

I will also be linking this card to the Deep Ocean Challenge #157 "Die Cuts, Chipboard and/or Punches" Challenge (I used die cuts and punches on this card) and the Word Art Wednesday #288-#289 "Anything Goes" Challenge.

Again, if you have not had a chance to visit the challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Ink the Hymn Blocks image using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Die cut with a stitched flag banner die and mount onto another flag banner die cut from black cardstock (this layer was already dry embossed and die cut in my stash).  Use a stencil brush with hickory smoke distress ink to stencil the horizontal lines (did not show well in the photo but I wanted to give the illusion of the shutters in the background).

2). Layer the designer papers onto a 5 ½” square white card base (I used retired paper from my massive stash).  Add the black organza ribbon and mount the focal image sentiment with dimensional foam.

3). Die cut and assemble the roses from cherry cardstock.  Punch the leaves from black cardstock and use a crimper tool to add texture.  Adhere the leaves to the back of the roses before mounting onto the card front.  

4). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the roses and a few black crystal drops as accents to finish off the card.

Thanks again for stopping by!  If you are able to join us, we would love to see your artwork in our gallery at The Card Concept!  Hugs and I hope all of you have a fabulous week!
