Look at this sweet nursery! There are so many items to inspire you- the curtains, rug, blanket, pictures on the wall, horse figurines, plant, ottoman along with all of the blues, corals, white and black.
I was inspired by the theme of baby (when I think of babies, I think of teddy bears:-)) as well as the corals and shades of blue to create a Shabby and Vintage card using some of my older stamp sets.I will also be linking this card to The Spot #150 “Birthday Themed Challenge”, the Simon Monday “Add Some Texture” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #478-#480
“Anything Goes” Challenge. Again, if you have not had a chance to visit The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Use the Stack ‘n Quilt Technique (see Splitcoaststampers for the tutorial), cut four pieces of designer paper into diagonal pieces, etc. Layer the pieces onto a piece of white cardstock, trim and emboss with a quilt embossing folder.
Mount onto a piece of vanilla cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of blue cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of coral cardstock.
Use a distressing tool to distress the edges, add a piece of blue satin ribbon (wrapping the ends behind the panel) and mount onto a white card base.
Ink the bear image and the sentiment with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of vanilla cardstock, apply clear embossing powder, heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the images with water-based markers.
Die cut the bear image with a stitched circle die, mount onto a circle die cut from blue cardstock, mount onto another circle die cut from coral cardstock.
Distress the edges and mount the circle element onto the card front with chipboard (or dimensional foam).
Die cut the sentiment with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto blue cardstock and mount again onto coral cardstock (trimming the edges close to the die cut edge each time).
Distress the edges and finish off the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front using chipboard (or dimensional foam).
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 March 1st at noon EST.
