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:

MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Happy Birthday

Hello, my friends, and welcome to Guneaux Designs.  I am happy that you stopped by today to see my MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Happy Birthday card.  Memory Box (MB) has wonderful dies, and this is one of my favorites.  I love butterflies, and seeing them on greeting cards always draws my attention.  I have used the MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Die  before, but as a stencil.  You can see that HERE.  For this card, I used the die to cut out a butterfly panel to attach over another panel that is sponged with various colors.

I used a piece of white card stock and an ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles die to cut out a frame.  Using the frame and Memory Box Reverse Butterfly Collage die, I cut out the butterflies.  I used the same ODBD die to cut out another piece of white card stock on which I sponged various Stampin’ Up! inks. Subsequently, I dabbed  All Purpose Ink (Frost White) over the panel with a piece of plastic wrap.  This photo shows the result.

I love the effect of using the All Purpose Frost White Ink!  I think it adds so much to a piece of sponged card stock.

I attached the sponged panel beneath the butterfly panel, and then attached both to the card base.  I think this qualifies as a Clean and Simple card.  I hope it does as I am submitting it to a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge.  Kathy Curry is the hostess of the challenge, and she asked for participants to “show me your favorite winged things this week”.  Butterflies are one of my favorite “winged things”.

To finish the card, I added a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the ODBD Seeds of Today stamp set.  I used the smallest of the ODBD Ornate Ovals die to create a frame for the sentiment, and added it to the card using double-sided foam tape.

JAMES 5:13-16

“Is anyone 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.  Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” 

Fifth Avenue Floral Birthday Card

Hello my friends, and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  I am happy you stopped by to enjoy my Fifth Avenue Floral Birthday Card!  The long-retired Stampin’ Up! (SU) stamp set, Fifth Avenue Floral, is featured on this birthday card.  

To make the card, I:

  • used the Lily stamp from the Fifth Avenue Floral set,
  • stamped several Lily images onto white card stock and colored them with copic sketch markers,
  • selected the best ones, fussy cut them, and cut between each petal on each Lily to curve (or roll) them,
  • used Sizzix’s Susan Garden Tool Kit (discontinued) to curve the petals and add veins in the Lily leaves,
  • colored and fussy cut stamens from other stamped Lily images, added flower soft to the ends with glossy accents, and attached them to the Lilies with foam tape for dimension,

  • used CottageCutz Double-Stitched Rectangle Dies Set to cut two pink frames/panels,
  • used a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder to emboss the front side of my white card base, and
  • assembled the card.

My card is a birthday card for my youngest daughter whose birthday is today.  She will love the card as a Lily is her favorite flower.

Thanks for stopping by, and may you have a blessed weekend.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-9

“Remember this:  Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.  As it is written:  “He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” 

Wildflower Gate Happy Birthday Card

Hello, friends!  Today I have a card share that I call, Wildflower Gate Happy Birthday Card.  The name comes from the embossing folder I used to create the card.  That is the Anna Griffin Wildflower Gate Embossing Folder.

I submitted my card for a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge for today that asks participants to “Think Spring”.  What comes to your mind when you think of spring?  I think of flowers, especially daffodils and tulips.  However, my card does not feature daffodils and tulips, it features a variety of flowers.

To create the card, I used the Wildflower Gate Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Neenah White Card Stock.  Then I used sponge daubers to apply ink onto the raised portions of the panel.  I used five of Catherine Pooler’s new inks:  Party Dress (pink), Flirty Fuchsia (purple), Something Borrowed (blue), Tiki Torch (orange), and Lime Rickey (lime).

After applying ink onto the floral images, I used the same embossing folder to carefully emboss a piece of vellum.  I aligned the two embossed pieces and attached them together.  I added rhinestones to some of the flowers and then used a corner punch for the four corners.  I then threaded a lime green ribbon around the card, adding a bow.  I finished by adding a “Happy Birthday” sentiment.  Now how clean and simple is that?

The Anna Griffin Wildflower Gate embossing folder is an old folder, and I cannot find a link online for you!

I hope you are inspired to use vellum in this manner, and you have enjoyed my Wildflower Gate Happy Birthday Card.

LUKE 24:45-49 

After Jesus was raised from the dead, he appeared before the Disciples and they were startled.  “Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.  He told them, ‘This is what is written:  The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.  You are witnesses of these things.  I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”  

Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card

Happy Monday!  Did you have a nice weekend?  The weather was wonderful where I live in Florida!  During the weekend I made this gorgeous Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card.  I love the Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set!

Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card

The Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set is a multi-layering group of stamps.  They create a beautiful peony.  To create the three peonies on this beautiful card, I used three different pink inks for the five stamps that create a peony.  I did not like the way the ink appeared on the bottom center peony, so I stamped it again on separate card stock and fussy cut it out.  I have a matching die set for the peonies; however I did not what the white edges that a die cut typically leaves.  I used double-sided foam tape to pop up the flower.

Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card

The frame that the images are on was cut out using the Spellbinders Enchanted Labels.  I think it is a beautiful frame.  I used the Hero Arts Birthday Celebration Stamp Set for the Happy Birthday sentiment.

I hope I have inspired you with the beautiful card!  Have a wonderful day, and if you have feedback, I would love to hear it.  Leave a message in the comment section.
