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!

Matthew 6:1

Jesus said, “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ in front of others, to be seen by them.  If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”

CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower

Hello, friends, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog, and I have a card for you that showcases the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower and the newly released CottageCutz Expression Plus Design die, “hello” .

The new CottageCutz Plus Designs dies (i.e., word dies) are fantastic!  I love the script design, and the die cuts are a great size.  For a limited time, these wonderful dies are 25% off!

My color selections of card stock and coloring were selected to coincide with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for yesterday.  These are the colors:  Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, and Always Artichoke, which are Stampin’ Up! colors.

I created the card by first stamping with black ink the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower image onto white card stock and coloring it with copics that closely match the above colors.  I used the matching die to cut out the floral image.

Afterwards, I decided I wanted to create an inlay with the image, so I used the negative of the floral image and a die from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut a rectangle.  Additionally, my butterfly from the same floral stamp and die set was on this panel and I wanted to include it.

  

My next step was to use a stencil and oxide inks to create this panel from white card stock.  I decided I wanted a piece of designer paper as a mat for the panel.  I attached the mat to the panel and adhered it to my card base.

 

I created a frame to go around the floral panel with two of the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set dies.  I attached foam tape to the frame and added it to the card.

Then I added foam tape to the floral image inlay panel and attached it inside the frame.

To complete the card, I added one of the Expression Plus Design scrip dies, “hello”, to the upper left of my card.

I hope you draw inspiration from my card, and leave me a comment!  I love reading comments!


These are the CottageCutz stamps and dies used on the card:

Luke 14:12-14

“Then Jesus said to his host, ‘When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.  But when you give a banquet invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.  Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’

Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings

Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  Today’s theme for the Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was the “Luck of the Irish”.  I submitted this Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card for the challenge.

To make the Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card, I used a heart-shaped die to create a shamrock on a piece of white card stock. Using VersaMark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder, I embossed around the shamrock and added a gold-embossed stem. I stamped greenery on the bottom of the card stock with a Lovely Notes stamp and attached an Irish-themed picture behind the shamrock.

I selected a scrap piece of SU Crushed Curry card stock, cut out a panel with an ODBD die, embossed it with an embossing folder, and attached it as a mat behind the white card stock. I created my sentiment, cut it out with a Sizzix die, and attached it to the card front. I added sequins and attached the front panels to the Gumball Green card base.  That is “clean and simple” to me.

Thanks for stopping by to view Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card!  Until the next time,

 HEBREWS 4:14-16

“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
