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.

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.”

CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up

COTTAGECUTZ JOLLY SNOWMAN HEADS UP

Welcome!!  I have a card share for you today that should bring laughter for you!  My card is a CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up card.  This week on Splitcoaststampers.com, there is a Clean and Simple Challenge that is titled, “Head in the Clouds”.  The challenge hostess wanted to see creations around this theme.  I decided to take the challenge literally.  So my card features the CottageCutz Jolly Snowman with his head in the clouds attached by black thread to the snowman’s arm.  I thought a “Heads Up” sentiment would be appropriate.

I wanted a cloudy background for a snowy scene, thus I cut some card stock in scallops of various sizes and used that as a cloud template.  Using the template, I sponged on some blue Hero Arts Distress Oxide inks and spritzed the clouds with water to get the appearance of it snowing.

Subsequently, I cut some snowbanks, covered them with sparkly crystal granules, and attached them to the card base.

Enjoy the card, and let me know if it made you laugh!

Spellbinders Victorian Arch

SPELLBINDERS VICTORIAN ARCH

Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs.  Today’s card share features the Spellbinders Victorian Arch Dies.  I have had these dies for over a year but have not used them.  I decided to use them yesterday to respond to a Splitcoaststamper.com challenge related to hand fans.  When I read the challenge, I immediately thought of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies as they remind me of a hand fan.

This is a photo of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies:

I used the dies and white card stock to cut out the arch.  I decorated the white arch with Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush drops and Heartfelt Creations Crystal Clear sparkly granules.  Subsequently, I cut a second Spellbinders Victorian Arch with white card stock on a foam sheet.  I did not want the small cutouts to come out of the die cut, and the adhesive foam sheet kept them in.  I colored the arch with a light green ink and adhered the first arch over top of the second one.

I cut a piece of designer paper from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding Collection and attached it to my card base made from Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow card stock (retired).  I used a Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride marker to outline the roses on the designer paper.  Then I attached the Spellbinders Victorian Arch onto the designer paper.

I wanted a butterfly to fill in the left side of the card.  Therefore, I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings Stamp Set and matching Die to create a butterfly.  Using green and pink Distress Oxide inks, I sponged the colors onto the butterfly and attached it to the arch with its wings raised.

For my “hugs” sentiment, I used a CottageCutz Hugs Phase Die to cut three Mossy Meadow “hugs”.  I adhered the three together and covered them with VersaMark® Watermark Ink.  I added clear embossing powder on the sentiment, heat set it, and attached it to the card.

I would love for you to share your thoughts about the card.  Feel free to leave a comment(s).
