I had fun designing a few cards this past weekend using the previously released Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Long Stem Silhouettes and Texture Tiles I along with May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts.
I wanted to create a quick and easy card so I used the CAS(E) This Sketch #270 SketchChallenge for the layout and am also participating with the Double D “May Flowers”Photo Inspiration Challenge (I was inspired by the soft pastel colors).
Just a reminder, you can receive the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts free with a net $75 US$ order (after all discounts and before shipping) plus any net $75 US receives free shipping!
Plus, if you love the new release as much as I do, you can order the Early Bird Pre-Order for $75 (US$) by May 9th, save over $10 off the regular price plus receive the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts free along with free shipping and handling- what a great deal!
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Create a mask using sticky note paper (hand tearing the edges), mask a piece of white cardstock and sponge Tim Holtz® Distress Oxide inks- I used Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Broken China- to create the horizontal stripes. Ink the Texture Tiles I script image using the same color ink and stamp in the sponged areas. Apply a bit of splatter with the splatter image from Texture Tiles I using the same ink colors, heat set with a heat tool to help dry the ink.
2). De-static the inked panel, stamp the wildflower image from Long Stem Silhouettes along with the sentiment from Scripty Thoughts with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
3). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.
4). Die cut the white card base with a stitched rectangle die (a few sizes up from the die cut panel in step #3) allowing the fold of the card to be down from the top edge of the die (so it will not be cut). Ink the edges with Broken China Distress Oxide ink to mimic cardstock (heat set with a heat tool to dry the ink).
5). Adhere the panel to the card base.
6). Add a few Nuvo™ Morning Dew Crystal Drops to finish off the card.
