F4A395 You've Got This- I am Praying for You
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today I am sharing a card designed for the Splitcoaststampers F4A395 “An Encouraging Word Goes a Long Way” Challenge. I am praying for quite a few people right now and needed to have a few more "Praying for You" cards in my stash.
I decided to use the Splitcoaststampers CC652 "Eating Berries and Doing Pirouettes in the Lost Lagoon" Color Challenge (including dimension for dessert) as well as my second card using the SC662 Sketch Challenge (I told you I loved this week's sketch in my previous post :-)).
I was also inspired by the FUSION 09/14/17 "Teacup Flowers" Inspiration Photo and will also be participating in the Word Art Wednesday#300- #301 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- great inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the floral images from You’ve Got This (Stampin’ Up!) with archival black ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Stamp three of the images and immediately apply clear embossing powder, heat set with a heat tool.
2). Watercolor the flowers using Stampin’ Write Markers- Pink Pirouette, Berry Burst and Lost Lagoon and once the watercolor has dried, fussy-cut the flowers and leaves.
3). Ink the sentiment from Strength & Prayers with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Die cut the sentiment with Circle Framelits™.
4). Cut an oval from Whisper White cardstock using an Oval Stitched Die. Trim a piece of Berry Burst cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”, die cut an oval in the center (same size die as used for the WW die cut) and emboss the panel with the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Layer the embossed panel onto a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock (4 ⅛” x 5 ⅜” ) and adhere to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
5). Insert the die cut Whisper White oval into the opening and mount the fussy-cut flowers with dimensional foam. Apply clear shimmer to the flower petals using Clear Wink of Stella® and add white highlights to the flower center with an Extra Fine White Paint Pen.
6). Using a scoring board, score a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock every ⅛”. Mount onto the card front (along with the sentiment) using dimensional foam and add a few sequins to finish off the card.
