ICAD Faith Art Journaling Cards with Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps


Hi everyone!  I've been very sick this month, but am finally able to share the remainder of my projects for my Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps Guest Designer spot.  I decided to create some journaling cards, after finding a really neat old wooden recipe box, and thinking it would be great to pull one out from time to time for daily inspiration.  I'm sharing a quickie video on my gel printing methods using my Gel Press printing plate and neon paints HERE.

I used the gorgeous Floral Doily Stencil by Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps for my printing and neon paints from Michaels, mixed with a little Folk Art Acrylic in white.  

I added some doodling with my Posca white paint pen and then proceeded to layer my torn gel printed papers with stamping.  For this first card I focused on the awesome Grace stamp from the Choose Faith stamp set.  

I actually printed on some upcycled tabbed dividers and thought it was fun to incorporate the tabs into the design.  I added some layers with washi tape and staples.  I tucked in a stamped and die cut image from the Be A Wildflower set, which I just smudged neon yellow paint onto with my finger.  

On my next card, I stamped the tiny leaf silhouette to make some faux washi and added one of the beautiful Hope Word Art sentiments.  I did a little stamping in Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide in the background for a hint of blue and gave everything a splash of watery black gesso.  I mounted the cards onto black cardstock for stability, used a corner punch, then edged in black ink.  I really look forward to building my collection of cards in my recipe box and drawing out daily inspiration.  

I hope these cards have inspired you today and you'll take a look at the inspiring products available on the Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps website!  xx, Autumn
