We have been featuring cards for Easter this past week on the Stamp Simply blog and I am sharing a quick card designed using He Is Risen along with Floral Clusters- Summer Roses, the coordinating die and Vivid Ink Drops 6x6 paper (all from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).
The background is actually “faux” alcohol ink and is a piece of designer
paper from the Consortium Vivid Ink Drops 6x6 paper pad- I absolutely love this
paper, don’t’ you?
I enjoy working with alcohol inks, but it can be messy- this paper pad takes all the work out of creating those fun backgrounds!
If you have not had time to check out the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, adhere a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” white cardstock to the panel.
De-static the lower edge of a 3 ¾” x 5” piece of the Vivid Inks designer paper with an embossing powder tool, stamp the John 3:16 verse sentiment from He Is Risen with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, adhere to the background panel and mount onto a white card base.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image using water-based makers and die cut with the coordinating Floral Cluster die. Die cut two more of the florals from white cardstock, adhere behind the colored floral image.
Mount onto the card front using dimensional foam or chipboard.
