Lighthouse Greeting Card

LIGHTHOUSE GREETING CARD

Hello, my friends, and thanks for stopping by to see my Lighthouse Greeting Card. Lighthouses have a special meaning to me and I love including them on my cards when possible.  Lighthouses to me are symbolic for the Word.

This Lighthouse Greeting Card was made in honor of the Featured Stamper for last week on Splitcoaststampers.  Sharon (aka shendrian) was the Featured Stamper, and I selected this gorgeous card of Sharon’s to case.  I love her red lighthouse and, therefore, I created a red one.

Isn’t the blue wavy panel gorgeous?  I created it with a We Are Memory Keepers Wave Embossing Folder and Hero Arts Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.

The lighthouse image was made with an old Rubber Stampede, Thy Word is a Lamp stamp.  I love the stamp, and looked for it on line to link to my post.  Unfortunately, I could only find it on eBay or Etsy.

May the verse on the card bring you joy today!

Happy Sunday to you!!!  Thanks for stopping by to see my project that I created with stamps from Hero Arts July Monthly Kit.  

For the longest time, I have wanted a garden trellis on which I would hang garden boots filled with garden soil and flowers.  I would place the trellis in my back-yard garden. Unfortunately, I have yet to achieve that dream, but maybe one day.

My card brings me joy as in my mind it is a replica of my dream.  I see behind the trellis my garden with the bright Florida sun and beautiful sky.  I see my garden flowers behind the trellis which are difficult for you to see, but they are there.  I created them by stamping in black ink floral images from an old Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, the Garden Silhouettes.  My boots (shoes) represent those I envision hanging on my trellis with beautiful flowers growing out of the top of the boots.

After stamping and coloring my flowers, I fussy cut them, as well as the boots.  I hope one day to bring my dream to fruition!

I submitted this card for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers.com.

DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia

Welcome!!  Are you thinking, “What is DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia“?  Just seeing the post title without the details would cause me to ask that question!  Let me explain.  DTGD17Benzi is the title of a Splitcoaststampers.com challenge.  It stands for Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD), 2017, hosted by “Benzi”, Brenda, a fantastic artist on Splitcoaststampers.com.  The Classic Petunia is the stamp set and dies I used when creating my card that I am sharing today.

The yearly DTGD challenges are for Club Members only of Splitcoaststampers.com.  If you are not a Club Member, you can become one by signing up on the Splitcoaststampers.com site.  Because the challenges are “secret”, I cannot share the details of the challenge featured on my card.

Here is my card that I made for Brenda’s DTGD Challenge, DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia.   The Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp Set and Dies are the main features on this card.

Here are additional photos of the card:

Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Card

Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Card

Happy Saturday, and thanks for stopping by to see my card share today that features the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp and Die!

I made this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers challenge, the Ways To Use It Challenge.  The challenge was to use strips of paper on your card.

To create the card, I cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of white card stock and scored it diagonally using a scoring tool. Hopefully you can see the score lines. Then I cut 1/8″ strips of paper and attached them diagonally to the scored piece in a weaved pattern.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamps and Dies to cut, color, and form the flowers.  Except for the white flowers, I used copics to color the flowers.  I formed the flowers and their leaves with a stylus and added prills in the centers.  Then I added Heartfelt Creations Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear around the edges.  The Crystal Clear is sparkles.

I attached the flowers to the scored and stripped piece after I added a green piece of ribbon. I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Collection paper pad.

I have fallen in love with Heartfelt Creations, and I am enjoying making cards with its products.  I hope you like this one!  Tell me what you think of it!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Proverbs 3:1-4

“My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong our life many years and bring you prosperity.  Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

SU Botanical Builder Dies

Tomorrow is Tuesday, and that means another week has gone by since the last Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  My card for tomorrow’s color challenge features the SU Botanical Builder Dies.  I think the floral dies are so pretty and can be combined in so many ways to create gorgeous flowers.

Vicki Dutcher (vdutchr) is the hostess for this week’s Color Challenge, and she asked us to use Stampin’ Up! colors of Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, and Emerald Envy. These colors are beautiful together!  Here is my card featuring the colors.

SU Botanical Builder Dies

To create the card, I began by cutting a Solar White card stock panel with the ODBD Majestic Medallion Die (the largest die).  Laying the die over the die cut, I used a Black Copic Multiliner to mark the edges.  Then I used the Saharan Screen Card Panel Die to cut out a Solar White stencil.  I laid the stencil over the Majestic Medallion die cut and, using SU Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy classic ink, I alternated sponging the inks across the stencil onto the other die cut.

SU Botanical Builder Dies2_1

The above photo shows the sponging, as well as a white embossed bird and birdcage. Vicki’s challenge included for dessert (i.e., extra points) the addition of a bird.  I also added red cardinals onto the sentiment piece that I made with the ODBD Ornate Ovals Dies (smallest die).  I added the sentiment, One-of-a-Kind, onto this piece in red ink.  The sentiment is from the Altenew One Of A Kind Stamp Set.  The following photo is of the sentiment.

SU Botanical Builder Dies3_1

For the foliage around the flowers, I used the ODBD Lovely Leaves Dies to create the leaves and sponged on Emerald Envy ink with different intensity so they would vary in color.  You can see the variations in the photo below.

SU Botanical Builder Dies7_1

After adhering the flowers to the card, I embellished them by placing Tempting Turquoise and/or Real Red candy dots in the centers.

I hope you are inspired by my card!  Thanks for stopping in and leaving comments!

ODBD Gladiolus – You Bless Me – ODBDSLC276

Gladiolus flowers are so beautiful, and they come in a large array of colors.  The Gladiolus flower was my Mom’s favorite flower.  When I saw the Gladiolus stamp from the ODBD Gladiolous – You Bless Me stamp set, I immediately thought of her.  So this card is in memory of her.

ODBD Gladious - You Bless Me

This card will be submitted to Our Daily Bread Designs for it’s July challenge, ODBDSLC276, Anything that Grows with ODBD.  The challenge requires the use of at least one stamp from either ODBD, North Coast Creations, or Artistic Outpost.  This card is created with two ODBD products; the frame die cut and the red Gladiolus stamp.

ODBD Gladious - You Bless MeI submitted this card to the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge.  The challenge was to create a card and “decorate all the way to the border. Add lace to the edge, color to the edge, stamp off the edge, die cut your card with a fancy die cut whatever you do go all the way to the border.”  Therefore, I used the largest die from the ODBD Vintage Border Dies to create my card in the form of the die.

ODBD Gladious3_1
I also submitted the card for two other Splitcoaststampers Challenges: 1) F4A334, “add some sort of frame (it can be diecut, punched, stamped, embossed, etc.) to your lovely creation” . Because my card is made in the form a frame die, I decided to submit the same card for this challenge.  2) IC554, Petals, which was to draw inspiration from a website full of gorgeous floral arrangements.

If interested, you may read all the wonderful Splitcoaststampers comments on this card HERE.  You will note that the card was selected as a Favorite For The Week Ending 7/17/16, as well as a CAS (Clean and Simple) favorite.

[Jesus said,] “But I tell you who hear me:  Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.  If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other cheek, turn to him the other also.  If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.”  Luke 6:27 – 29 (NIV)
