It’s time for the #196 “Spring is About to Spring” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
Easter is only a few weeks away and I have not had a chance to create a card yet with the new Crosses of Hope Framelits™.
I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers CC677 Color Challenge into the design along with the Tic-Tac-Toe #038 Challenge (Green, Sparkle, Happy) and the International Art & Soul #28 “Emboss and Use A Die”Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challengesite to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Use Stampin’ Write Markers- color the flower spray image from Hold On To Hope using Emerald Envy for the stems and Calypso Coral for the flowers. “Huff” onto the stamp to re-moisten and stamp onto a piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock. “Huff” again for a second generation stamping, re-color the image and stamp a few more times.
2). Trim the panel to 4” x 5 ¼”. Stamp the flourish image from Timeless Textures with Versamark™ ink repeatedly around the edges and score at the bottom and top of the panel. Mount onto a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
3). Die cut the main cross from Crosses of Hope Framelits™ from Calypso Coral cardstock and the intricate cross from Whisper White cardstock. Layer the two and add shimmer to the Calypso Coral areas with Clear Wink of Stella®.
4). Loop a bit of Gold Metallic Thread behind the area where the cross will be mounted and mount the cross with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
5). Ink the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Versamark™ and stamp onto a scrap piece of Emerald Envy cardstock. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Hand trim and add a flag banner on the end before mounting onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Add a Pearl to the middle of the cross to finish off the card.
