Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  My card share for you showcases Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace, which is a “Make it Market Mini Kit”.  The Kit includes Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stamp set & index label, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace die collection, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stencil collection (set of 3), and Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace paper collection (18 A2 sheets).  I used one of the Lovely Lace stencils in the kit to create this card.

I used the following stencil from the kit, and sponged Tim Holtz’s Oxide Inks onto a piece of white card stock.

After sponging on the colors over the stencil, I used the Spellbinders Curved Borders Two dies to cut off the upper right corner.

Then I stamped my sentiment at the top right corner of a white A2 card base.  The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Pen & Ink stamp set.

Paertrey Ink Lovely Lace

I used foam tape to attach the floral piece to the card base.

See the paper rose at the bottom left of the card?  I made it with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Stamp Set and Botanical Wings Die Set and attached it to the card.  To finish the card, I added a few sequins.

I am submitting this card for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week.

May you find inspiration from this card!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!

 Revelations 22:12 & 13

Christ said, “Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

Iris Folding Hot-Air Balloon

Hello, crafters!  When was the last time you used the Iris Folding Technique?  It has been a while for me, but I have an example for you today.  This technique was featured as a Technique Lovers’ Challenge on Splitcoaststampers on Monday.  I went through my iris folding designs and selected an Iris Folding Hot-Air Balloon.  This design was more difficult from one’s I’ve tried before.

The iris folding on this card  is the upper part of the balloon.  I wish I could show you the actual design; however, it is copyrighted.  But you can get a sense of the design by the flow of the folded pieces of designer series paper.  An iris folding design includes lines, which represent where the folds go, and numbers (e.g., 1 – 26) within the shape.  Each number represents a fold.

There are four different “patterns” of numbers for this design.  A pattern is the designer paper, specialty paper, card stock, etc., that you chose to use to fold and adhere to the card stock where numbers are located.  For example, Pattern A of this design included the numbers 1, 3, 7, 11, 15, 19 and 23.  I selected a pattern from the Stampin Up Carried Away Designer Series Paper (i.e., the colorful hot-air balloons), cut 1-1/2″ strips of the pattern, folded them in half, placed them over the numbers for Pattern A, and attached them to my card stock that has the outline cutout of the design.  The right side of the balloon is where Pattern A is located.

Pattern B is located where the folds of Mint Macaron paper is located, Pattern C is where the Watermelon Wonder (orange) folds are located, and Pattern D is where the Night of Navy folds are located.  To get a better sense of a design, numbers, and patterns, you can go HERE for numerous pictures.

These are examples of other cards I have created featuring Iris Folding:       

  

If you have not tried this technique, I encourage you to try it.  It is a lot of fun.  Thanks for stopping in, and I hope you enjoyed your visit!

GUNEAUX DESIGNS BLOOMING GARDEN GREETING CARD

Hello and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  I hope your New Year has started off with love, kindness, and everything good!  Today, my friends, my card share, Guneaux Designs Blooming Garden Greeting Card, features the Penny Black Blooming Garden Stamp Set.  This stamp set is new to me, and I expect it will be used frequently.

I am not sure of the type of flower the image is, but I think it is beautiful.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neenah Solar White Card Stock that I cut using Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Using various Copic Sketch Markers, I colored the floral image in shades of light and dark pink and green.  I used a Dapper Denim Stampin’ Up! (SU) Marker to draw a frame for the floral image. The sentiment, from ODBD Faith Card Sentiments, is stamped in the SU Dapper Denim color.  This photo provides a closeup of the flowers.
After I finished with the sentiment and floral image, I attached the piece to a die cut piece of SU Dapper Denim Card Stock that I cut using the ODBD Lavish Layers Dies.  I used the Be Creative Sookwang Double-Sided Tape to adhere this piece of card stock. Have you ever used this double-sided tape?  It is the strongest double-sided tape that I have come across, and it comes in several widths.  If you have not used it, give it a try; I think you will be impressed!

I am submitting this card to the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week. The color combination for the challenge is Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and Dapper Denim. I think the combination is a great one!  If you have not entered the Splitcoaststampers Challenges, I encourage you to give it a try.  It is lots of fun!

Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

Paul’s Charge to Timothy:  “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.”  1 Timothy 6:17-18

ODBD Grace’s Hope

Happy Monday!!  Hope everyone had a blessed weekend!  Today’s card share features two different  and new Our Daily Bread Designs (OBDB) products: 1)  ODBD Grace’s Hope Stamp Set (1715) and 2) ODBD Lavish Layers Dies.  Also featured is a retired Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, the And Everything Nice.

ODBD Grace's Hope

Isn’t she so pretty?  I have had this stamp of the little girl in the rain since it came out in 2005; however, I had never used it until today!  Eleven years she was stuck inside her plastic container.  Shame, shame!!  LOL

I used the new ODBD Lavish Layers Dies to cut the two frames showing on the card. Isn’t the design of these dies gorgeous?   I love the new dies!  They are very intricate but cut so well.  The card’s sentiment “HOPE” is from the ODBD Grace’s Hope stamp set. If you’ve not tried Our Daily Bread Designs products, I strongly recommend them to you!


Let me share about the name of the stamp set, Grace’s Hope.  Grace Nywening is a sweet lady who is a former Design Team Coordinator and current DT member of Our Daily Bread Designs Company.   She is undergoing a very powerful chemotherapy treatment course for Breast Cancer.  ODBD decided to honor Grace by dedicating to her the Special Edition Anniversary stamp sets for 2016!  Grace’s Hope is one of the stamp sets.  If you believe in prayer, please add her to your prayer list.  Thank you!


Back to the card.  I am submittimg this card to Splitcoaststampers for it’s Clean and Simple Challenge, CAS371 – APRIL SHOWERS.  The challenge requirements are:  “You know the old saying…April showers bring May Flowers?  Well, today it’s all about those April Showers! The challenge is to use a watery image/element on your project.”  When I read the challenge, the little girl stamp immediately came to my mind.  FINALLY, I decided to use the stamp for my image on the card!

I hope you enjoy my little girl!!
