Rejoice in the Lord Always
Today I am sharing a card designed using the retired Stampin’ Up! Sunflower background stamp (digital image) along with a sentiment from the retired Verve Stamps set, Scripture Medley 1 and retired designer papers.
I wanted to participate with the TGIF Challenge #275 Inspiration Challenge- I was inspired by the colors as well as the sunflower :-) and incorporated the Splitcoaststampers SC161 Sketch Challenge into the design.
I am also playing along with the Word Art Wednesday #450-#451 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To creates this card:
I already had the Stampin’ Up! Sunflower background image printed out in my stash (it was reduced in size in the retired My Digital Studio™ program).
Fussy cut the sunflower and color with yellow and brown alcohol markers.
Die cut the various pieces of designer paper with stitched rectangle dies, layer onto espresso cardstock, trim close to the edge.
Mount the die cut layered pieces onto a white card base per the sketch.
Color the sunflower image with alcohol markers, fussy cut and use a black marker to color the edges.
Stamp the verse sentiment with black embossing ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder, heat with a heat tool. Once the embossing powder has cooled, die cut with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto espresso cardstock, trim close to the edge.
Adhere the layered sentiment onto the card front using chipboard (or dimensional foam).
Add the fussy cut sunflower to the upper left corner.
Finish off the card with a few brown sequins and a white paper lace doily (another scrap, yea!).
