TCC114 Be Joyful

Hi Friends!

Isn’t this a fun photo? I absolutely love all the bright colors of the galoshes as well as the wooden fence and was inspired by the garden theme/colors to create a One Layer Clean and Simple (CAS) card! 

As I mentioned before, I have such a large collection of stamps that have either not been inked in years (if ever), so I am trying to give them some “love”.   

I could not find a suitable garden boot image in my massive stash:-)  so I decided pulled out a very old Stampin’ Up! image from the Friendship Gardens stamp set (retired in 2006) with a sentiment from Verve Stamps (also retired).  

In addition to The Card Concept Challenge, I am also linking this card to the Addicted to Stamps and More #339 CAS Challenge, the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #109 “Anything Goes”Challenge (the Friendship Gardens image is at least 13 years old and the Verve sentiment is well over a year as well) and the Word Art Wednesday #384-#385“Anything Goes” Challenge. 

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

To create this card:

1). Score and fold a piece of 4.25” x 11” heavy white cardstock in half.  De-static the card front with an embossing powder tool, stamp the garden image using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. 

2). Once the embossing has cooled, color the garden image using water-based markers (the colors I used are listed below) along with a water brush to blend the color.

3). Ink the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink and stamp onto the card front.

4). To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals (difficult to see in the photo) and a black fine line pen to add definition to the soil line.
