TCC98 Rejoice in the Lord

Hi Friends!

Welcome to The Card Concept #98 {Pastel Party} Challenge!!  What a fun inspiration photo and we can not wait to see what will inspire you!!

I was inspired by the pastel rainbow colors as well as the black and white graphic background and banners to create a quick Mixed Media card. 

Just a reminder that The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a suggestion of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media (or you can combine several styles for your own style).

If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or visit the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). On a piece of white cardstock, sponge Tim Holtz® Distress Oxide Inks (colors used noted below in the card recipe).  Spritz with water, dry with a heat tool and re-apply additional ink until you are satisfied with the results.

2). Apply strips of washi tape, tearing for different heights. 

3). Ink the floral image from Unity Stamp Co. using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and stamp repeatedly onto the background panel (masking the washi tape to avoid stamping onto the tape).  Trim the panel and add the three black square brads to the corner.

4). Mount the background panel onto white cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.  Trim once more before mounting onto a white card base.

5). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from Scripture Medley 1 (retired Verve Stamps) with Versafine™ Onyx Black, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the die cut edge.  Add a black square brad to opposite corners.

6). Add strips of washi tape to pastel cardstock and cut the small banners using a punch (or die- I used the retired Banner Punch from Stampin’ Up!).  Adhere the banners behind the sentiment panel and mount onto the card front using dimensional foam.

Stamp Sets: Scripture Medley 1 (retired Verve Stamps), Faith & Hope - Gracielle Designs (Unity Stamp Co)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black, TH Distress Oxide- Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron; TH Distress- Hickory Smoke

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Lemon Lime Twist (Stampin’ Up!)

Tools/Accessories:  Big Shot™, MFT Stitched A2 Rectangle Set 2 Dies;  Embossing Buddy®, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Sponge Daubers, retired Banner Punch (SU!), Washi Tape (Kovano), Square Black Brads (from my stash)

Thanks again for taking the time to drop by!  I hope I have inspired you to create your own card based on our {Pastel Party} photo and link up to our gallery at TheCard Concept- we would love to see your interpretation!!
