Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia

Hello, my friends, and thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  Have you seen the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia collection?  The collection is beautiful, and recently I fell in love with it and had to purchased the collection.  I am showcasing the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia collection by using the Small and Large Classic Petunia Stamp Sets and matching Dies on my beautiful card share for today.

I created my card with a 6″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock that I folded to create a 4-1/4″ x 6″ card base.  I wanted to use the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval die to cut out a 2″ section of the front of the card base.  What a task that was!  But I was successful.  The key to achieving this is the placement of the cutting plates for my die-cutting machine. The bottom cutting plate is lined up differently from the top plate when running the card base and die through the machine.

After cutting the card base with the oval die, I cut out another 2″ Decorative Oval section from white card stock and attached that to the back of the card base oval, lining it up carefully!  I used 110 LB card stock; therefore, the second oval added additional support for the card.

I used a yellow Copic Sketch Marker to color some SU Basic Pearls and attached them to the oval die cut, as you can see in the above photo.  The photo also shows the sentiment that is from the Heartfelt Classic Petunia Paper Collection.

My next step was to stamp, cut out, color, decorate, and assemble the small and large petunias.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia dies to cut out the petals and leaves from Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them with Copic markers closely related to the SU Sweet Sugarplum color.  This color was selected to response to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (i.e., Sweet Sugarplum, Daffodil Delight, and Wild Wasabi).  After coloring and assembling the flowers, I added some SU glitter to the ends of the petals and White Prills to the centers.

Then I attached the flowers to the left side of the card base.

I hope you find inspiration from my Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia card.  Here are a couple photos of the card taken at different angles.

I also submitted this card for two other Splitcoaststampers challenges.  One is a sketch challenge, and the other a Ways To Use It Challenge (i.e., add pearls to a project).

1 John 3:1

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  And that is what we are!  The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

If The Shoe Fits, Wear It

IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT

Have you heard the odd saying, “If the shoe fits, wear it”?   The saying is used as a way of suggesting that someone should accept a generalized remark or criticism as applying to him/herself.  It can be interrupted as sarcasm, but there is a lot of truth to the saying.  If someone is sharing information that seems to fit our behavior, we need to own it, right?  I think so!

To that end, I am sharing a card I created recently for a “Free For All Challenge” hosted by Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge was to make a card that reflects an odd saying like “Happy as a clam”, “In the pink”, “Two peas in a pod”, and so on.  I decided to enter the challenge with this card representing the odd saying, “If The Shoe Fits, Wear It”.

If The Show Fits Wear It

As I read the challenge, my mind started clicking off a lot of odd sayings when “If The Shoe Fits, Wear It” came to mind.  I remembered a OLD stamp I have of a shoe, and decided it would be perfect.  Therefore, I stamped it three times on white card stock, colored the shoe images with copics, and cut them out with a die.

I used a die from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut out each shoe. I love the die set as I used to be one who cross stitched regularly.  It is a fun craft using counted-thread embroidery.

If The Shoe Fits Wear It

To assemble the card, I staggered the shoe frames (or boxes) on a piece of yellow card stock that I had cut out with a die from a ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and scored with a scoring tool.  I created the sentiment, “IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!” digitally, cut it out using the same CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set, and attached to the card front.  Lastly, I added a few sequins.

I hope you enjoy the card and will return for other Guneaux Designs projects!  If you are a Christian, I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!

 LUKE 24:45-47

“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.”

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.
