Guneaux Designs 2017 Best Handmade Cards

As shared yesterday, I am looking back at Guneaux Designs 2017 best handmade cards and wanted to share them.  Today I am sharing three more cards with you.  These cards were also posted on Splitcoaststampers (SCS), Pinterest, and/or other sites.  The comments on SCS and Pinterest PINs is my guide on selecting the best cards.  You can click on the photos to get full details about them.

Here are the three best cards for day three:

  1.  HEARTFELT CREATIONS CLASSIC PETUNIA

I posted this card on June 3, 2017.  Using SCS comments, Pinterest PINS, and views of the card, I have to consider this the BEST card of 2017.  As of this posting, it has received 2223 views on SCS, many comments on SCS, recognition as a favorite on SCS, and 431 Pinterest PINS.  The card features Heartfelt Creations products, and it was recognized by the company on its Twitter feed.  Actually, it has been pinned more than 431 times, and I have seen it on many Twitter feeds and Pinterest Boards.  If the card is posted to Pinterest from my SCS Gallery, which it was, I do not know how many times it was pinned because of Pinterest’s recent change of not including the number of PINs for each card.


Revelations 20:1-3

“And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain [word of God].  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.  He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended.  After that, he must be set free for a short time.”

  1.  FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BIRTHDAY CARD

I posted this card on my site on March 4, 2017.  I am finding it interesting to look back at my card posts, as I am learning that I did not always post my cards to SCS and/or Pinterest.  This card is one of them!  However, I love this card as I made it for my daughter’s birthday and she loved it.


Revelation 3:10 & 11

“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.  I am coming soon.  Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”

ODBD White As Snow

ODBD White As Snow

Hello, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  The Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) December release includes the sweetest snowman stamp!  I love cards with snowman(men) images!  When ODBD released the stamp, I knew I had to purchase it. The ODBD White as Snow Snowman stamp is featured on my card share today.

Don’t you agree that he is so cute!!!


Luke 2:4-7 (NIV)

“So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David.  He went there to register [for the census] with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.  While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her first-born, a son.  She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”

Neon Violet Ornaments – Delightful Decorations

Neon Violet Ornaments – Delightful Decorations

Hello and Happy Monday!!  Thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs to see my latest crafting creation!  I have for you today a card that I call, Neon Violet Ornaments, and it features the ODBD Delightful Decorations stamp set.

This card is for today’s Splitcoaststampers Clean And Simple challenge to show what you love about November by using the letters N.O.V. in making your card!  The NOV for my card is: N – Neon Violet; O – Ornaments; and V – Violet Ornaments.  The primary color on the card is a Fluorescent Violet, but it looks royal blue.

What do I love about November?  My daughters decorating their Christmas trees!  The day after Thanksgiving is when they decorate.  That is why I created a Christmas card with an image of a decorated tree, or the bottom section thereof.


Micah 6:8

“He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Pretty Posies

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to enjoy my Pretty Posies card.

I created this card in honor of a “Featured Stamper” on Splitcoaststampers.com, Diane (HappyinMarco).  Diane has a gorgeous and unique gallery, and it was difficult to choose one card to case.  However, as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew it was the one.

I love the blue colors, butterflies, and leaves on Diane’s card, and I added those elements to my card, but in a different manner.  My main panel is blueish-green and I created it by sponging and blending several Distress Oxide Inks.  Instead of die cut stems and leaves as are on Diane’s card, I embossed my main panel with a stems and leaves embossing folder.  I added two butterflies as she did.  However, mine are from a different die cut, assorted colors, and located differently on the card.  I added a paper flower to my card that I created with ODBD Pretty Posies Die Set.


Paper: Neenah Soler White, PTI Lemon Tart, PTI Hawaiian Shores, and PTI Simply Chartreuse
Ink: Distress Oxide Inks
Accessories: ODBD Pretty Posies Dies, SU Butterfly Dies, CottageCutz Expressions Plus Hello, Sequins, AG Embossing Folder, Sequins, and Prills
Techniques: Sponging and Blending

Luke 14:1 – 3

One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched.  There in front of him was a man suffering from dropsy.  Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?”  But they remained silent.  So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him away.”

Hibiscus Greeting Card

Hello, my friends!  Hope you have some great plans for the weekend!  I appreciate you stopping by Guneaux Designs to see my Hibiscus Greeting Card.  I love Hibiscus plants, and I have many around my home.  One of my Hibiscus plants is the impetus for creating this Hibiscus Greeting Card.  It is a plant that produces large beautiful pink flowers.  Each flower on the Hibiscus plant is at least 6″ in size.

I created this Hibiscus Greeting Card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers.com  Ways To Use It Challenge, WT649 – Domestic Inspiration.  The challenge is to find something around your home that inspires you.  I draw inspiration from many of my Hibiscus plants as well as many other floral plants.  But this plant is right outside my crafting room window, and each time I look outside, I see the beautiful blooms.  This is the card I created from my inspiration piece.

Here is a photo of my inspiration piece:

While I was taking the above photo, I had a bee hanging round the flower.  Therefore, I included a bee on the Hibiscus on the bottom left of my card.  The Hibiscus flower and leaves were made with the ODBD Hibiscus Dies and ODBD Tropical Leaves.  I included pink prills on the Hibiscus stamen. The bee was made with the ODBD Butterfly and Bugs Stamp Set and Matching Dies.

To create the background of the card, I used several Hero Arts Distress Oxide Ink Pads to sponge on the sky and water.  Afterwards I used the ODBD Bon Voyage Stamp Set to stamp the Palm Trees in black ink, as well as the sentiment.  This stamp set is a great set if you like creating beach scenes.

To assemble the card, I created a black frame using the ODBD Pierceed Rectangles Dies to go around the beach scene.

My card base is black card stock to which I added a piece of pink card stock.  I attached the scene to the pink card stock and added the Hibiscus and leaves.

Please share your thoughts about my Hibiscus Greeting card!  I love reading your comments!

This card was selected for the Customer Card of the Day by Our Daily Bread Designs.  What an honor!!

Ephesians 4:31 & 31

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.”
