Shirt and Bow Tie Card

SHIRT AND BOW TIE CARD

Did you know that Monday was the National Bow Tie Day?  I did not know until it was brought to my attention by a Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com.   The hostess challenged us to create cards with bows, and it was up to us to interpret the challenge.  Well, I created this Shirt and Bow Tie Card and submitted it to the challenge.

This card is a masculine card and could be given for Father’s Day, New Year’s Day, Birthdays, and many other occasions.  The card is quite simple to make. I simply used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of white card stock, measured and marked at the 1″ mark down from the top of the paper, and cut toward the center on both ends, leaving about an inch uncut.


I folded the cut portions to form a collar for the shirt. I added the bow tie, buttons, and suspenders (i.e., ribbon) down both sides. I attached this to a Houndstooth embossed card base. How simple!!

Paper: Neenah Solar White, SU Basic Black, & Real Red CS

James 5:13-16

“Is any one of you in trouble?  He should pray.  Is anyone happy?  Let him sing songs of praise.  Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.”

Paper Layering Mermaid Card

PAPER LAYERING MERMAID CARD – GUNEAUX DESIGNS

Today I am sharing a Hero Arts Paper Layering Mermaid Card.  Isn’t she so gorgeous!!  I think so!!

On Splitcoaststampers.com, a member, Maura (beesmom), selected a wonderful combination of colors for last week’s color challenge!  Her colors are SU Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist, and her dessert is “birthdays”.

Although I think this combination of colors is so beautiful, I struggled with it initially. I made three cards working with the colors and was not happy with any except this one. Now that I have created a project with the colors, I am sure it will be one I use again.

I have no products in the SU Lemon Lime Twist color, so I had to improvise by using copics and closely related paper.  I used the Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay in card stock only.  For these two colors, I also used copics in addition to Hero Arts Distress Oxide Inks.

I created the mermaid with a Hero Arts Paper Layering Mermaid Die that I have had for 3 months but was not sure how to use it, quite frankly.  I had not used a “paper layering” die before.  I think I determined how to use it, but if I didn’t, that’s OK with me.

I colored the mermaid with copics and die cut her. I lifted the scales and the end of her tail and covered them with sparkles. I also lifted her arms and hair, where possible, and adhered the remaining portions of the die cut to the color-blended panel. I made the panel by sponging distress oxide inks, spritzing a stencil, and laying the wet stencil over the panel. I added seaweed and lots of sequins for bubbles.

My card is a birthday card, but I chose to use a “celebrate” sentiment.


Paper: Neenah White, SU Basic Gray, SU Bermuda Bay, PTI Simply Chartreuse

Accessories: Hero Arts (HA) Mermaid Dies, HA Seaweed Die, HA Stencil, CottageCutz Expressions Plus Die, Sequins, Crystal Sparkles, Be Creative Adhesive, Water, and Spritzer

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.”

Card Made With Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window

Card Made With Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window

Welcome to Guneaux Designs.  My project share today is a card made with Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window Die.  I love the Botanic Window Die as it can be used to create various styles of windows and well as non-window projects (i.e., ornaments, etc.).  Here is the card I made with the die.

My card also features the Heartfelt Creations (HC) Classic Petunia Bouquet Stamp Set and Matching Die, and the HC Small Classic Petunia Stamp Set and Matching Die.  

If you click on the above link of the  Botanical Window Die link, you’ll see that I used only the outside portion of the window die on my card.  I added to the back of the window a beautiful floral vellum, and to the front the hanging basket of floral images.

I submitted this card to Splitcoaststampers.com for two challenges; a color challenge and sketch challenge

Thanks for stopping by to enjoy my card made with Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window!

Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp

Power Poppy Sunset Digital Stamp

Welcome!!  Thanks for stopping by to see my latest piece of artwork; a card featuring the Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp.  I think the floral image is gorgeous.

I created this card for two Splitcoaststampers.com challenges.  One challenge is the Color Challenge for this week.  The hostess for the challenge selected a beautiful color combination of POWDER PINK, SWEET SUGAR PLUM, and MINT MACARON. These are Stampin’ Up! colors.

Because I do not have the Stampin’ Up! colors, I used Copic Sketch Markers in similar colors.  This following photo shows a closeup of the colored floral image.

You can also see the bling I added to the pink oval around the image.  I used the Heartfelt Creation Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glossy granules on the oval. The oval and first layer on the card are from Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Collection Designer Paper.

The second Splitcoaststampers.com challenge for which I made this card is the DTGD17CherylQuilts, Dare To Get Dirty challenge.  As I have shared in my last two posts, I cannot provide what this challenge entails.

To finish the card, I adhered the designer paper and floral image to a white card stock base and added some drops of Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to see my card featuring the Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp.

Matthew 12:39 & 40

Jesus said, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign!  But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.  For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

ODBD Steampunk Gears

Today I have a card share for you, and it features the ODBD Steampunk Gears Dies. This card is not my typical artwork, and making it was out of my comfort zone. However, I wanted to make it for a Splitcoaststampers.com Dare To Get Dirty Challenge. Unfortunately, I cannot share the details of the Dare To Get Dirty Challenge per Splitcoaststampers.com.  If you are a Club Member, you already know the details.  If you are not, you can join Splitcoaststampers as a Club Member so you can participate in the challenges.

To create the card, I die cut the gears using the ODBD Steampunk Gears Dies.   I covered the gears with VersaMark® Watermark Ink and embossed them with Copper, Green, Black, Pewter, and Yellow embossing powder.  Then I attach two or more gears together with adhesive.

I sponged several Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (e.g., blues, greens, yellow, brown, orange, etc.) onto a piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock.   I stamped over the sponged on ink some text and designs.  Then I began adding the gears to the panel. On three sets of gears, I added one or two layers of foam tape.  In addition to the foam tape, I attached the gear sets to the card stock with black brads.

After adding the gears, I added a sentiment.  I attached it with two gears and black brads.

I cut a piece of copper foil and added it to the back of the above panel.

To finish the card, I cut an A2 piece of black card stock and added the above to the card base.

Considering I was out of my comfort zone making this card, please share how you think I did.  Thanking you in advance for your comments.

Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by to see my Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley card!  I created this card in response to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge to create a card/project using three Stampin’ Up! colors and no flowers.

These are the three colors for the challenge:

I sponged these colors onto a piece of white card stock and cut out butterflies using the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley die.  I added crystals and pearls to them to add some bling.

This is the die used:

Next, I used Watermelon Wonderful card stock and Soft Sky designer series paper to create two panels that I added to the card front.

I used the following Heartfelt Creations Decorative Medallions Dies to create the panels.  After taking the above photo, I decided to cut a small section from the top and bottom of both panels.

Additional photos of the card are below:
