TCC153 Be Still and Know


Hi Friends!  

For those of you who are not familiar with The Card Concept Challenge, it is a bi-weekly challenge that uses an inspiration photo for you to create a card.  You can choose or combine card making styles and our Design Team of ten ladies creates a card as well to inspire you. 

I love this farmhouse style photo and was inspired by the lavender. the corrugated pitcher with the black and white checked ribbon, the script on the pillow as well as the shiplap background to create a Shabby and Vintage Mixed Media card.

 Many of you that follow my blog know that I have been slowly working on creating a card for each of the over 800 Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenges :-)      and incorporated the  SC269 Sketch for the layout.

I am also linking this card to the A Place to Start- April 2021 "Anything Goes- Make It Elegant" Challenge.

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:

On a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock, stamp the “Carte Postale” , Script and Cancelled Postage image with Pumice Stone Distress Ink to cover the panel.

Using a score board, score the paper at ⅝” intervals and distress the edges of the panel (this is difficult to see in the photo but the score lines are there :-)). 

Using Pumice Stone distress ink, apply the ink directly to the edges and use a water brush to add a bit of ink to distress the background.

Cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of eggplant cardstock in half diagonally, emboss the rectangle with a tin tile embossing folder, distress the edges and adhere to the background panel.

Mount the panel onto a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of eggplant cardstock, distress the edges, add a strip of black and white checked ribbon, and mount the panel onto a white card base.

Trim a piece of light gray cardstock, crimp with a crimper tool, apply pearl embossing paste and use a water brush to spread the paste.  Use a heat tool to dry the crimped panel and adhere to the card front.  Add a few pieces of Graphic 45 Washi Tape to the crimped panel, use a scoring tool to create grooves that match the corrugated lines.

Trim a piece of white cardstock to approx. 2 ¾” x 2 ½”, ink the Graphic 45 newsprint image with Pumice Stone distress ink, stamp repeatedly over the piece of cardstock, distress the edges and apply Pumice Stone ink to distress.

Using Dusty Concord distress ink, stamp the stem image from Country Roads onto the above panel, stamping off to create volume and dimension.  Use a heat tool to make sure the ink has dried.

De-static with an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse sentiment with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Mount onto a piece of eggplant cardstock, trim close to the edge, distress with a distressing tool and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam (or chipboard). 

To finish off the card, add the black and white checked bow and a few rhinestones to the corners of the stamped sentiment panel.

Hi Julie! I had to come by your blog to look carefully at this beauty. A work of love and art! Really needs to be in an art gallery! Of course farm style is my favorite, so I'm partial, but truly love every detail! Hugs!
