TCC120 Sending Love and Sympathy

Hi Friends! 

Welcome to The Card Concept #120 {Cozy Cottage} Challenge!  Isn’t this a cozy picture- I can imagine a cottage in the woods with a beautiful scene from the kitchen window!  I was inspired by the blue, white as well as the soft yellow along with the patterns to create a Shabby and Vintage/Mixed Media card!

I decided to pull out a current Stampin’ Up! Set, Petal Palette and pair it with a sentiment from the retired set, Love & Sympathy.  I also used some very old blue checked and soft yellow patterned paper (Stampin’ Up! circa 1999 or so)- this is what they offered prior to their one-sided designer paper line, lol!  I still have many of the colors and patterns in my “stash” :-)

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- gorgeous inspiration from all!

The floral image from Petal Palette was stamped twice onto prepared white cardstock with with Versafine™ Onyx Black and were heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Once the embossing powder had cooled, the images were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers (see colors below) using a water brush to soften the edges before fussy cutting (also cutting some of the images apart to layer).

Layer the patterned and embossed papers per the sketch, add the grosgrain and crochet lace along with the pearls.  

Adhere the fussy-cut flowers to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Petal Palette, Botanicals, Love & Sympathy (all Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black,  Night of Navy Classic, Stampin’ Write Markers- So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive; Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy; retired SU! Patterned Paper- Navy Check, Barely Banana Plaid (circa 1999)

Tools/Accessories: Big Shot™, Gemini™, Ornate Lace 3D EF (Crafters Companion™), My Favorite Things™ Dies- Stitched A2 Rectangle STAX, Stitched Circle STAX; Sixxiz™ Ovals and Circles; Embossing Buddy®, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, 1” Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, White Crochet Lace
