TCC86 What A Savior

Hi Friends!!

I was inspired by the vintage style of the setting, the lace, roses and colors to create a Shabby Chic Mixed Media card with the new February release stamp set, What A Savior from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.  

This stamp set has several hymns as well as wonderful sentiments for Easter and year round- love the artwork created by NinaB Designs for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps!

Our theme is "Old Fashioned Love" and when I think of love, I think of the sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us on the cross.  There is no greater love - what a Wonderful Savior is Jesus Our Lord!!

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the entries at the other challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Prepare two pieces of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the hymn image and three of the rose images from What A Savior with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the hymn image with a stitched circle die and watercolor the rose images with distress inks as well as water-based markers (see all of the colors used in the card recipe below). 

2). Fussy cut the roses (cutting the foliage away from some of the petals and attaching in different areas on the flower to frame the hymn).

3).  Tap worn lipstick distress ink onto a craft mat, spritz with water and add to the hymn image as well as a piece of designer paper.  Also add vintage photo to the designer paper and antique linen to the hymn (to “age” the paper).

4). Distress the edges of the designer paper and mount onto a piece of suede cardstock.  Add the ivory crochet lace and rose satin ribbon (wrapping the ends behind the panel) before mounting the entire panel onto the white card base.

5). Die cut an ornate circle die from suede cardstock, sponge vintage photo distress ink around the edges, mount the hymn image onto the circle and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.

6). Add the fussy-cut flowers using dimensional foam and a few sequins.

7). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the roses and pearls in the upper right and lower left hand corner to finish off the card.
