Cast All Your Cares
Here is another card with some of my older stamp sets- this card includes retired Stampin’ Up! Summer by the Sea, Stipple Shells along with the retired Verve Stamp Set, Faith Medley.
I heat embossed all of the images as well as the sentiment using clear embossing powder and water-colored the images with clean color markers and distress inks. The shells were fussy-cut, the main image was die cut with a stitched rectangle die and the sentiment with a stitched oval die.
All of the elements were layered onto black cardstock with the main image and seashells mounted onto the card front with dimensional foam.
The card was finished off with a clear glitter pen and rhinestones.
I incorporated the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C496 Sandcastles Challenge, The HouseThat Stamps Built #A1419 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (top diagonal- By the Sea,Texture, Bright Colors) and the Stinkin’ Inkers August “Some Like It Hot”Challenge.
