TCC89 Live By Faith

Hi Friends!!

It’s time for The Card Concept #89  {Spring has Sprung} Challenge!!  I love this bright, crisp spring photo- don’t you?  

Spring may have sprung for some parts of the US, but for us, winter came in with full force! We had more snow than all winter on the first day of spring- lol!!  I was not going to let the snow spoil spring though and I was inspired by the yellows, blues and stripes to create a fairly simple mixed media card.

I designed this card with the Boho Cross and Boho Faith stamp sets (Our Daily Bread Designs) along with a bit of very neglected washi tape (from my massive stash).

I love participating with online challenges and am linking this card to the Simon Says National Craft Month Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #326-#327 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

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- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using a Clarity™ Stencil Brush along with a stencil, apply Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

2). Once you are satisfied with the background, de-static the cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Boho Faith with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

3). Once the embossing has cooled, place a few strips of yellow washi tape over the background (I have so much washi tape and rarely use it for cards- I need to work on this- lol!).  Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock before adhering to the white card base.

4). On another piece of Whisper White cardstock, de-static with an embossing powder tool, stamp the cross from Boho Cross with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise and fussy-cut the image.

5). Loop a piece of gold metallic thread and mount onto the card front (position so you can adhere behind where you will mount the cross image).

6). Mount the cross image using dimensional foam.

7). Add shimmer to the cross image with a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen and a Pearl in the center of the cross.  Finish off with a few Morning Dew Nuvo™ Crystal Drops.

Inks/Mediums:  Versafine™ Onyx Black, Tim Holtz® Tumbled Glass Distress Ink; Stampin’ Write Markers- Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise; Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen, Nuvo™ Morning Dew Crystal Drops

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories: Embossing Buddy®, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Clarity™ Stencil Brush, Memory Box™ Distressed Tula Stencil, Gold Metallic Thread, Misc. Yellow Washi Tape, Self-Adhesive Pearl
