Delight Yourself in the Lord
I hope all of you are having a fabulous week so far! This morning I am sharing a card that I designed using a few retired stamps as well as retired designer papers (I love being able to use up some of my stash).
As I shared in previous posts, I am working on trying to create a card for each of the Splitcoaststampers (SCS)
Sketch Challenges (there is no deadline for the SCS Challenges) and used the SC220 Sketch for the layout on this card.
This sketch allowed me to use two different patterned papers for the background panel and qualifies for the Simon Says Wednesday “Two or More Patterned Papers” Challenge.
I am also linking to the Creative with Stamps #47 “Red” Challenge, the Simon Says Monday “Frame It” Challenge and a new to me challenge site, Sweet Stampers Challenge #41 “Hearts and/or Flowers” Challenge.
This Mixed Media card was fairly simple to create:
1). On a piece of white cardstock, stamp the larger floral image with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
2). Create a mask by stamping the floral image onto a piece of scrap paper, fussy-cut the image and mask the original flower before stamping and repeating these steps for the next two flowers. Once the heat embossing has cooled, use water-based markers to watercolor the flowers.
3). Die cut the flower panel with a stitched rectangle die and watercolor the background with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. Heat set the background ink before heat embossing the sentiment using the same embossing steps as above.
4). Mount the panel onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge, mount onto white cardstock, trim again and mount finally onto black cardstock to create the frame.
5). For the background, die cut the strips of designer paper using horizontal stitched strip dies, mount onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge, mount onto white cardstock and die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.
6). Mount the background panel onto a piece of black cardstock (die cut with another stitched rectangle die) and mount the background panel onto a white card base. Add the framed floral panel with dimensional foam (or chipboard).
7). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals and add a few Nuvo™ Morning Dew Jewel Drops to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I will be sharing a few more cards in the next few weeks (I have over 50 finished cards to post to my blog). Stamping is my “therapy” and I love creating, but it seems to take me so much time to photograph/edit the cards, create the blog posts, etc.- lol!! Hugs and I hope you will have a chance to visit again soon!
