Cardmaking Inspiration | Patience Tested


Sometimes a new sentiment is all it takes...

Today I am pleased to present some cardmaking inspiration for you featuring the "Patience Tested" sentiment stamp from the August 2021 New Release.

I have used the "Beautiful Strength" stamp many times in earlier projects, but when the "Patience Tested" sentiment was released, I immediately thought of how the two stamps would look together.

I found scraps of the most colorful inked and sprayed backgrounds I could find. In fact, I didn't have to create any new backgrounds at all... I simply rummaged through my scraps to find the most colorful pieces I had. Then, I stamped "Beautiful Strength" several times on the scraps and also on plain white cardstock. 

I rummaged through my most colorful scraps...

Then, I used detail scissors to cut out individual pieces in a variety of colors. I played around with the individual pieces, fitting them like puzzle pieces onto the base stamped image. You can see in the photo above, I am working on the pieces on the woman's arm. 

When my pieces were ready, I first colored in the woman with a Spectrum Noir 3-part blending marker. Then, I glued all the individually cut paper pieces down using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment below the woman and rubbed some glitter here and there (fun fact - I do this to get sticky glue off my fingers)! For a final touch, I added a metal embellishment onto her head scarf and mounted everything on an inked background I had in my scrap pile.

Thank you for looking!
