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.

Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card

Happy Monday!  Did you have a nice weekend?  The weather was wonderful where I live in Florida!  During the weekend I made this gorgeous Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card.  I love the Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set!

Altenew Peony Bouquet Birthday Card

The Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set is a multi-layering group of stamps.  They create a beautiful peony.  To create the three peonies on this beautiful card, I used three different pink inks for the five stamps that create a peony.  I did not like the way the ink appeared on the bottom center peony, so I stamped it again on separate card stock and fussy cut it out.  I have a matching die set for the peonies; however I did not what the white edges that a die cut typically leaves.  I used double-sided foam tape to pop up the flower.

The frame that the images are on was cut out using the Spellbinders Enchanted Labels.  I think it is a beautiful frame.  I used the Hero Arts Birthday Celebration Stamp Set for the Happy Birthday sentiment.

Jesus said:  “The eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.  If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
