The Blessings of the Lord

Hi Friends!!

While the roofing contractors replaced all our roof yesterday, I had a chance to spend time in my craft room and create a few cards.  I miss my stamping “therapy” and with the stress of all of the recent remodeling/construction lately, I definitely needed some time in my craft room, lol!

Today I am sharing a card that I designed yesterday using two stamp sets from Divinity Designs LLC- the Indian corn image is from the A-Maize-ing Stamp/Die Duo set and the sentiment from the retired set, Doily Blessings.  **FYI** I fussy-cut the image this time (versus using the die) since some of my watercolor bled over the stamped edges- oops!

I love participating with online challenges and incorporated the Sketch Saturday #584 SketchChallenge, the Simon Says Monday “Fall/Autumn” Challenge , the Addicted toStamps and More #362 “Make Your Mark” Challenge and the {PIN}spirational #249 InspirationChallenge (I was inspired by the theme as well as the colors).

If you have not had a chance to drop by the above challenge sites yet, I hope you do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

Stamp the Indian corn image using Staz-On® Black ink, watercolor with water-based markers and watercolor pencils and once satisfied, die cut (or in this case, fussy-cut) the image.  

Add a bit of shimmer over the corn with a clear glitter pen and a few white highlights to the berries with an extra fine white paint pen before mounting onto an oval die cut using dimensional foam.

Cut the two pieces of designer paper (from my stash), lightly stamp the background of the upper panel with a retired script stamp (Botanicals from Stampin’ Up!) using distress ink, dry emboss the lower panel with a quilt embossing folder and use a distressing tool to lightly distress all of the outside edges of both panels.  

Mount both panels  onto a piece of cream cardstock and adhere to a piece of berry cardstock, trimming to fit a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” card base.

Add a strip of berry satin ribbon to cover the edges of the panels on the card front (wrapping the ends behind the panel) before adhering the entire panel onto a white card base.

Die cut the doily oval from berry cardstock , adhere the Indian corn image to the center and add to the card front using dimensional foam (or lately, I prefer using my scraps of chipboard :-)).

Stamp the sentiment with Staz-On® Black ink , die cut with a stitched circle die and mount onto a circle die cut from berry cardstock.  Slip the upper end of the circle under the ribbon and adhere directly to the card front.

Add the wire clip to the ribbon to finish off the card.
