Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Foliage

Have you seen the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Foliage dies?  They are great!  I used one of the dies to create the pumpkin on my card share for today.  This card is for a Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers to create a “grateful” card.

I used this technique to create a panel from which I die cut the pumpkin and sentiment.


John 14:9

“Jesus answered [Philip]:  “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time?  Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.  How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?”.”

Penny Black On The Lake

Penny Black On The Lake

I have for you today a card made with the Penny Black On The Lake stamp.  Penny Black makes gorgeous stamps, and I have had this stamp for many months and not used it.  I was not sure if I could make a nice card with it.  I decided to take a chance and see what I could create with it.  I think I made a beautiful card featuring the Penny Black On The Lake stamp.

I wanted to use fall colors to create the card, so I used several Stampin’ Up!’s (SU) inks (i.e., pads and markers).


Luke 10:18-20

Jesus said: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.  I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy: nothing will harm you.  However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Autumn Splendor

Autumn Splendor

Are you having a wonderful fall season?  Fall, also known as autumn, is the time of the year that the season changes from summer to winter in the Northern Hemisphere.  The deciduous trees’ leaves turn into awesome colors before falling from the trees.  Then there is the wonderful task we all love to hate; raking the leaves.

I hope that you are experiencing the typical autumn with the awesome array of colors.  I live in Florida where the official memo announcing autumn never arrives.  I miss the wonderful season, and I try to enjoy it through crafting.  My card share today is one reflecting autumn splendor.


Hebrews 13:15

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise —the fruit of lips that confess his name.”



This week’s color challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to create using Stampin’ Up! (SU) colors of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler.  I submitted this card for the challenge. Continue reading

Welcome!  Happy Saturday, and thanks for stopping by to see my card  featuring the CottageCutz Woodland Animals Stamps.  I love the little animals in this stamp set; they are so adorable.  My card today showcases the fox.  He is in the hollow of a tree that I drew using copic sketch markers.


1 Peter 2:17

“Show proper respect to everyone:  Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.”

Polished Stone Technique With a Twist

Polished Stone Technique With A Twist

I have for you today a card I made using the Polished Stone Technique with a twist!  The method used for this card is easier and faster than the normal Polish Stone Technique.  You can view this POST for instructions on the normal Polish Stone Technique.


1 Peter 2:9

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Hero Arts Paper Layering Sunflower

Have you seen the Hero Arts Paper Layering Sunflower dies?  They create such a beautiful sunflower.  I have several sunflower stamps and dies, but this one is my favorite.  I created this card for Lori’s Splitcoaststampers’ Falliday Fest Challenge, FF17StampMommaA.  Her challenge was to create a card with a sentiment of “blessings”!


Proverbs 16:18

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”
