TCC148 Be Strong in the Lord


Hi Friends!

Welcome to The Card Concept #148 {Sweetheart Sweets} Challenge!

Isn’t this a scrumptious looking plate of cupcakes?

I was inspired by the beautiful pinks and browns to create a Shabby and Vintage Mixed Media card using some of my older stamp sets (which as many of you know, is one of my personal goals).  

I decided to try to create a card that did not require any dies (sort of a "back to basic" style card) :-)

Many of you know that I love to participate with online challenges  and am participating with the Word Art Wednesday #477-478 “Anything Goes” Challenge (one of my favorite challenge sites:-).   

Again, if you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept or the Word Art Wednesday challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all! 

To create this card:

On a silicone or glass mat, “smoosh” ink from Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink pads onto the surface, lightly spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink.

 Lift the cardstock panel up from the ink (tilting to allow the ink to spread across the panel) and repeat until you are satisfied with the background.

Ink a large and small splatter stamp with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink, stamp onto the panel.  

Use a heat tool to dry the panel. 

Ink the scroll image and the script image with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink, stamp repeatedly onto the background panel.

De-static the lower edge with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Scripture sentiment with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. 

Trim the panel to approx. 3.75” x 5” and tear the upper right-hand and lower left-hand edges by hand.  Use a distress tool to distress all the sides of the panel.

Adhere to a piece of white cardstock, trim to approx. 4” x 5 ¼” and mount onto a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” espresso cardstock.  Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

De-static a scrap piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the butterflies and heat emboss with clear embossing powder (using the same steps as above for the Scripture).

Use a coordinating punch to punch out the butterflies (or fussy cut).

Mount onto the card front and add a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Bliss, Grunge Elements, Notable Notions, Papillon Potpourri, Timeless Textures (all retired Stampin’ Up!), Scripture Collection 3 (Divinity Designs LLC)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide- Ground Espresso, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick

Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso (Stampin’ Up!)

Tools/Accessories: Embossing Powder Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Distressing Tool, Rhinestones, retired Butterfly Punch (Stampin’ Up!)

Thanks again for taking the time to visit!  We would love for you to create a card based on our inspiration photo and join us at The Card Concept! The challenge is open until February 15th at noon EST.

Oh my heart, Julie...this is SO beautiful. I love the cascading flow of pink and those gorgeous butterflies. How pretty. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing this beauty with us at Word Art Wednesday. It always means SO much to me, and is always a delight to my heart when I see your lovely art. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
I did play along at The Card Concept this time. I haven't received any comments from the DT, so I'm always left wondering if I "played along correctly". Nonetheless, I had a load of fun making my card....that's what matters. Right? Thanks again for sharing your talents with us, and have a wonderfully blessed week.

I love how the beautiful butterflies and the pink work so well with a scripture reminding us to take heart!
