SC670 Harvest Blessings

Hi Friends!

It’s Wednesday and time again for the #670 sketch at Splitcoaststampers! Diane is our sketch artist this week and I love the versatile sketch she has created for our challenge, don’t you?  
You can create a clean and simple card or add additional embellishments to dress it up, whatever your heart desires :-)

In my continuing effort to make sure I am using all of my stamps (especially my neglected retired ones) I decided to create a Clean and Simple Mixed Media card using the retired Stained Glass and Harvest Blessings stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!

I also incorporated the Simon Monday “Thanks/Thanksgiving” Challenge and the Double D “Feeling Fallish” Challenge (I was inspired by the colors) along with a few other Splitcoaststampers’ challenges (which are mainly “personal” challenges such as Divine  Design Bible Verse Challenge BVC17-to create a card with Scripture and memorize the verse; the USEIT2017 Challenge- use your unloved or uninked stamps and supplies;  and the All Occasion Card Challenge- create and link up your occasion cards for the month) into the design.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Splitcoaststampers’ Sketch gallery or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- such wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Ink the stained glass image with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto a prepared piece of Whisper White cardstock (use an embossing powder tool first to prepare the paper), apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. 

2). Once the embossing has cooled, color the image with markers and use a water brush to blend.  FYI- I used various Stampin’ Write Markers along with Tim Holtz® Distress Markers (colors are listed below). Fussy-cut the image and cut into thirds (per the sketch).  Mount each panel onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and trim close to the edge.

3). Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 4” x 4” for the card front.  Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 ¾” x 3 ¾”, de-static with a powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Harvest Blessings with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. 

4). Once the embossing has cooled, add the strip of 1/8” black satin ribbon and mount the panel onto the black card front.  Mount the entire card front onto the 4 ¼” square white card base.

5). Mount the stained glass stamped panels using dimensional foam and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the edges of the stained glass image as well as the pumpkin.

6). Add a looped 1/8” black satin ribbon bow with the button to finish off the card.
