Have A Groovy Day!!

Hello Delightful friends and family! 
It's been quite a few days since I've posted but have been busy finishing up some projects for the Christian Paper Crafts Design Team Delights for the month of July.  Our theme this month is Retro and Vintage. I sure hope you've been visiting the Creative Blog,  I've been inspired by the DT's fantastic projects and I've peeked into the gallery and have been blown away by all the projects! 

Okay, today is my turn to give a little glimpse so here is my card for just a tiny taste of what you will find at the CPC Gallery (list of ingredients and directions at the end of this post):

I hope you like this! I thought I would have a difficult time with the Retro theme but it was just the opposite. I had a really hard time making a vintage card and having a super groovy time with the retro! Weird!

This is just a fun card that is very retro with the design elements of the paper and the background stamp and of course the lava lamps!  I've used the Unity Stamp Co. "Going Retro" stamp set (lava lamps, background, sentiment).  The geometric designer paper is My Minds Eye (Lush collection - Hip Luxurious Basics).  The card stock is Bazzill (patina, snow white and raven).

Step 1: Cut card base from Patina colored card stock 4.25" x 11" fold to make card. Cut designer paper 1/8" smaller than the front of base. Adhere together.
Step 2:  Cut black (raven) card stock 3.5 x 3" and cut patina card stock 1/8" smaller than black.
Step 3:  Stamp patina with Archival Aqua Marine ink with the background stamp (tone on tone).  Adhere to black card stock and adhere to card.
Step 4:  Stamp Lava Lamps onto white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Color in the "lava" with Copics BG18, BG45, BG49 then use the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (mermaid color) over the lava to give it a little "bling!"  Fussy cut it out and adhere with dimensionals. 
Step 5:  Stamp sentiment onto patina card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and adhere to card.

  Our Design Team Delights gallery is a monthly gallery that all Super Sisters and King’s Daughters can access. It’s filled each month with stunning projects created by our design team and amazing special guests (this months guest designer: PATTER CROSS  please check out her blog!). You won’t be able to see the projects that are inside the gallery anywhere else…not on blogs, in galleries, or anywhere! They are exclusive to the Design Team Delights, so join us today and don’t miss a thing!

I invite you to visit us at CPC and join us in our Bible Study, we just began Chapter 13 in the Gospel of John. I thought it would be good to give a little sneak peek and overview of the chapter and next week we'll dig right in and go verse by verse. If it's your first visit there, you'll find all the studies in the Bible Study thread so you can start with chapter 1 if you'd like. It's a real blessing to be able to serve the online community this way.

Also our RETRO and VINTAGE Blog Hop is July 22 so be sure and check out HERE for more of the details and prizes!!

Thanks for visiting and I love to read your delightful comments!! God bless.
