Guneaux Designs Strumming Guitar

What does the word, strings, bring to your mind?  For me, it is my Dad’s old Gibson Dove Custom guitar.  That thought generated this Guneaux Designs Strumming Guitar card.

Why would the word strings come to my mind?  It is because today’s Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge was to think of strings when creating and submitting a card for the challenge.  The image showcased on this Guneaux Designs Strumming Guitar card is a digital image that I downloaded and colored.  I used Copic Sketch Markers in shade of browns and blues to color it.

I wanted to add a couple elements to the guitar that reminded me of my Dad’s guitar, which I have now because of his passing.  The two elements are the bird on the right and the white panel at the bottom right of the guitar.  I added white Crystal Drops to these elements to give them the look of mother of pearl.  My Dad’s guitar has a mother of pearl dove and other mother of pearl elements on it.  I thought the Crystal Drops would be perfect to replicate that.

After finishing with the image, I used a die from My Favorite Things to cut the white panel, and attached it to a turquoise card base.  Because the Guneaux Designs Strumming Guitar card is a clean and simple one, that’s all, folks!  Thank you for stopping by!


The primary supplies used for this card are:

MATTHEW 5:8-10

“Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, ‘Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘I will come and heal him.’ The centurion answered and said, ‘Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed… ‘When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!’ 

ODBD Heart and Soul Collection

Hello, my friends!  So glad you stopped by today to see my clean and simple card I made with the ODBD Heart and Soul Collection designer paper.  I created this card for Splitcoaststampers KelliJo’s Clean and Simple Challenge, CAS416, to create a sentiment-only card.  My card consists of designer paper, a sentiment, and crystal drops. I simply used a piece of designer paper that I stamped with a “You’re So Loved” sentiment using VersaMark Ink and White Embossing Powder.  I added crystal drops on two corners and adhered the paper to a white card base.

This is the Our Daily Bread’s Heart and Soul Collection Designer Paper that I used.  I’ve identified the design I used on the card in the picture.

This is the stamp set I used for the sentiment.

Now this is a very Clean and Simple card, don’t you agree?  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed week!

MATTHEW 6:1-4

Jesus said:  “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them.  If you do you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.  So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men.  I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.  But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret.  Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Paper Purse Card with SU Paisley Petals

Welcome, my friends!  Yesterday I free-handed a Paper Purse Card with SU Paisley Petals DSP.   I designed this paper purse card for a challenge to create a card in a shape other than the normal rectangle or square.

Using my personally-designed template, I created the paper purse card base and handles with Marina Mist card stock.  I used Stampin’ Up!’s lovely retired Paisley Petals DSP on the front and back of the card base.  I made the top flap on the paper purse card with the same DSP using an Impression Obsession 6 in 1 frames die.  The die is one die that cuts out 6 different frames and they nest together perfectly.  I used the 6 frames cut from the two DSP designs, and alternated them on the flap.  I attached that onto a piece of Old Olive card stock.  I attached the flap to the card base with foam tape.  I created a Tangerine Tango rose with a Swarovski Crystal in the center and attached it to the purse flap.

Using an ODBD oval die, I cut out two ovals to which I added the sentiment and two Swarovski Crystals.  The paper purse card folds like a regular card and there is plenty of room on the inside for a personal message.  The card measures 7″ x 5-1/2″.
