SU Out West

SU Out West

Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper for this week is Susy Kegal (aka Boss).  The object of being a featured stamper is for others to case your work.  Susy has a fantastic gallery from which to pick a card to case.  After spending time viewing a lot of Susy’s gorgeous gallery, I kept coming back to this Boots Scootin’ card, so I had to case it. The boots on Susy’s and my cards are the only similar element.  When I saw her card, I was reminded of the Stampin’ Up! (SU) Out West stamp set that is retired and contains a pair of boots.  Thus, I used the SU Out West stamp set for my card.


Ephesians 2:4-7

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”

Serene Silhouettes

SERENE SILHOUETTES

Hello, and welcome back, or welcome if this is your first time to this site.  Do you remember the old Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Serene Silhouettes?  I call the stamp set “old” because it is more than five years old.  I created my Serene Silhouettes card for a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS) to create a project that includes birds.  Because the card needed to be CAS, I searched for a simple image of a bird or birds, and this set is the one I found in my stash of older stamps.


Ephesians 2:1-3

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this wold and the ruler of the kingdom of the air [Satan], the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.  All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts.  Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.”

Tutorial for a Pop Up Valentine

TUTORIAL FOR A POP UP VALENTINE

Hello, friends!!  Today I have for you a tutorial for a pop up valentine.  I made this valentine card in response to a Splitcoastampers’ challenge to create a pop up card.  I rarely make such a card, and I had to do a lot of experimenting to make this one as  I did not have, or could not find, a tutorial that I liked when making mine.  I knew what I wanted to create, so I set out to accomplish a pop up card using Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies.  Here is the front of my card.


John 17:22-23

Jesus Prays for All Believers:  “I have given them the glory that you [God] gave me, that they may be one as we are one:  I in them and you in me.  May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

Are you ready for Spring?  I sure am!  It will be here according to the calendar in about six weeks!  I am trying to move it along by creating a card that relates to May Showers Brings May Flowers!  I am sharing with you today my Heartfelt Creations Songs of Spring card.


2 Timothy 3:1-5

“But mark this:  There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power.  Have nothing to do with them.”

Are we living in these days???

Luke 20:45-47

“While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, “Beware of the teachers of the law.  They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.  They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers.  Such men will be punished most severely.”

Frederique Morrel Artwork Inspiration

FREDERIQUE MORREL ARTWORK INSPIRATION

Welcome!  Today I created my first shadow box card that was inspired by the Frederique Morrel Artwork site The Splitcoaststampers.com Inspiration Challenge for today featured this site.  It is an awesome site of a different type of art, which is textile art.  The artwork seems to be driven primarily by deer, birds, bunnies, and flowers.  It was difficult for me to select one piece of art; therefore, I created this card as my Frederique Morrel Artwork Inspiration piece.  I tried to capture the essence of the site when creating the card.  The bunnies and deer in the shadow box are created from fabric.


Luke 15:3-7

“Then Jesus told them this parable:  “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them.  Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.  Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’  I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
