Frederique Morrel Artwork Inspiration

FREDERIQUE MORREL ARTWORK INSPIRATION

Welcome!  Today I created my first shadow box card that was inspired by the Frederique Morrel Artwork site The Splitcoaststampers.com Inspiration Challenge for today featured this site.  It is an awesome site of a different type of art, which is textile art.  The artwork seems to be driven primarily by deer, birds, bunnies, and flowers.  It was difficult for me to select one piece of art; therefore, I created this card as my Frederique Morrel Artwork Inspiration piece.  I tried to capture the essence of the site when creating the card.  The bunnies and deer in the shadow box are created from fabric.


Luke 15:3-7

“Then Jesus told them this parable:  “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them.  Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.  Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’  I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!  May your year be one of blessings and good health!  As shared yesterday, I am looking back at Guneaux Designs 2017 best handmade cards and wanted to share them.  Hopefully, you will come along with me on this journey.  I posted the cards on Splitcoaststampers (SCS), Pinterest, and/or other sites.  The comments on SCS and Pinterest PINs is my guide on selecting the best cards.  You can click on the photos to get full details about them.

  1.  FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BIRTHDAY CARD

I posted this card on my site on March 4, 2017.  I am finding it interesting to look back at my card posts, as I am learning that I did not always post my cards to SCS and/or Pinterest.  This card is one of them!  However, I love this card as I made it for my daughter’s birthday and she loved it.


Revelation 3:10 & 11

“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.  I am coming soon.  Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”

CottageCutz Woodland Animals Stamps

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.”

Wintertime Scene Birthday Card

Hello, my friends!  I hope you are having a good day!  Thank you for stopping by to see my Wintertime Scene Birthday Card.  This card could be a Christmas card; however, I created it for my granddaughter who will have her 3-year old birthday next month.  She loves crafting with her Nana, using CottageCutz dies, the color pink, deer, etc.  Therefore, I kept that in mind when creating the card.  Before her birthday, I will add a Happy Birthday sentiment on the sign that is hanging from the post.


1 Peter 2:24

“He himself [Jesus] bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his woulds you have been healed.”

CottageCutz Autumn Card

COTTAGECUTZ AUTUMN CARD

Hello, my friends!  I had to take another break from Irma cleanup to make this CottageCutz Autumn Card.  My driveway is half full of debris from the storm, and it has yet to be picked up by the county.  I’m trying to be patient, but gee, it has been close to a month!  I’m sure they are working as fast as possible as there was a lot of damage in my county.  I just want to  see a clean driveway!!  On to the card.

I did not know where to begin to create my card, so I decided to use two Splitcoaststampers.com challenges.  One is this week’s Clean and Simple challenge, “Pumpkin Time”, and the other the Color Challenge, “A Peach Twist with Espresso”.

The “Pumpkin Time” challenge is to “show your take on a pumpkin theme”.  The color challenge included three Stampin’ Up! colors:

Pretty Posies

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to enjoy my Pretty Posies card.

I created this card in honor of a “Featured Stamper” on Splitcoaststampers.com, Diane (HappyinMarco).  Diane has a gorgeous and unique gallery, and it was difficult to choose one card to case.  However, as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew it was the one.

I love the blue colors, butterflies, and leaves on Diane’s card, and I added those elements to my card, but in a different manner.  My main panel is blueish-green and I created it by sponging and blending several Distress Oxide Inks.  Instead of die cut stems and leaves as are on Diane’s card, I embossed my main panel with a stems and leaves embossing folder.  I added two butterflies as she did.  However, mine are from a different die cut, assorted colors, and located differently on the card.  I added a paper flower to my card that I created with ODBD Pretty Posies Die Set.


Paper: Neenah Soler White, PTI Lemon Tart, PTI Hawaiian Shores, and PTI Simply Chartreuse
Ink: Distress Oxide Inks
Accessories: ODBD Pretty Posies Dies, SU Butterfly Dies, CottageCutz Expressions Plus Hello, Sequins, AG Embossing Folder, Sequins, and Prills
Techniques: Sponging and Blending

Luke 14:1 – 3

One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched.  There in front of him was a man suffering from dropsy.  Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?”  But they remained silent.  So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him away.”
