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!

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!

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:

Colossians 2:8

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”

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.”

Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit

Happy Wednesday!!  Did you get a chance to purchase the May Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit?  I was blessed to purchase it before it sold out!  These kits sale out rapidly and are not available again from Hero Arts.  This is how Hero Arts describes the May Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit:

“Join us for an underwater adventure with this month’s May My Monthly Hero Kit! The stamp set has mermaids, undersea life and sentiments that go along with them. You can easily create beautiful scenes with the coordinating dies and frame cuts. Using the stencil you can create the feeling of movement that is subtle or dramatic. There are ink cubes, papers and a specialty iridescent ink that all work together effortlessly. Sequins add a bit of sparkle and with the acetate sheets that are included you can make stunning shaker cards that create a window into your underwater world.”

The kit has wonderful products, and I am sharing a card I made with it.

Here is a photo of the kit:

To create the card, I used three of Tim Holtz’s Distress Oxide Inks to sponge the colors onto a piece of Neehan Solar White Card Stock.  Next, I spritzed water onto the stencil from the kit and laid it over my sponging.  I love the look it gives.  Then I added the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder, which I heat set.

Next, I cut out two fancy ovals using the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Dieswhich is an “add-on” for the Hero Arts Underwater Adventure Monthly Kit.  I glued the two cutouts together for more weight.  (As of this posting, this die is still available.)

I used three of the stamps from the kit to stamp with Black Ink and color with Copic Sketch Markers.

To finish the card, I attached the colored and stenciled piece to an A2 white card base. Then I applied a double layer of foam tape to the oval cutouts and attached them over the stenciled piece.  Lastly, I added the elements in the above photo to the card and three sequins.

Tell me what you think of the card?  I hope you draw inspiration from it!


Because the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Die is the only product that can be purchased as of this posting, I am only showing that product with a link.

“Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Splitcoaststampers Techy Challenge

Do you consider yourself a “techy” kind of person?  If so, what is the technology you use the most?  Technology has grown by leaps and bounds, and it seems to change daily. Creating a techy card was a challenge for Monday’s Splitcoaststampers Techy Challenge.  This challenge was to “include some type of technology/electronic on a card, or use  technology to create a card”.  I submitted this “get well” card below for the Splitcoaststampers Techy Challenge.

I used Microsoft PowerPoint (PP) to create the desk, computer, and sentiment on the card. To create the desk and computer, I used the the PP “Insert” “Shapes” functions to create many lines to form the shapes.  I am happy with the outcome.

I  fussy cut the desk and computer and added black brads for the desk drawer knobs. Then I added designer paper from the newly released Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Paper Collection to the card base.  Afterwards, I used the Stampin’ Up! Hearth and Home Framelits to cut out a window from white card stock.  I attached another piece of the designer paper to the back of the window to create a scene outside of it.  I attached that to the card base.

Then I added foam tape to the desk and computer and attached them to the card.  I had so much fun creating this card, and I hope you enjoy it!
