CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower

Hello, friends, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog, and I have a card for you that showcases the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower and the newly released CottageCutz Expression Plus Design die, “hello” .

The new CottageCutz Plus Designs dies (i.e., word dies) are fantastic!  I love the script design, and the die cuts are a great size.  For a limited time, these wonderful dies are 25% off!

My color selections of card stock and coloring were selected to coincide with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for yesterday.  These are the colors:  Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, and Always Artichoke, which are Stampin’ Up! colors.

I created the card by first stamping with black ink the lovely CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower image onto white card stock and coloring it with copics that closely match the above colors.  I used the matching die to cut out the floral image.

Afterwards, I decided I wanted to create an inlay with the image, so I used the negative of the floral image and a die from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut a rectangle.  Additionally, my butterfly from the same floral stamp and die set was on this panel and I wanted to include it.

  

My next step was to use a stencil and oxide inks to create this panel from white card stock.  I decided I wanted a piece of designer paper as a mat for the panel.  I attached the mat to the panel and adhered it to my card base.

 

I created a frame to go around the floral panel with two of the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set dies.  I attached foam tape to the frame and added it to the card.

Then I added foam tape to the floral image inlay panel and attached it inside the frame.

To complete the card, I added one of the Expression Plus Design scrip dies, “hello”, to the upper left of my card.

I hope you draw inspiration from my card, and leave me a comment!  I love reading comments!


These are the CottageCutz stamps and dies used on the card:

Luke 14:12-14

“Then Jesus said to his host, ‘When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.  But when you give a banquet invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.  Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’

Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  My card share for you showcases Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace, which is a “Make it Market Mini Kit”.  The Kit includes Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stamp set & index label, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace die collection, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stencil collection (set of 3), and Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace paper collection (18 A2 sheets).  I used one of the Lovely Lace stencils in the kit to create this card.

I used the following stencil from the kit, and sponged Tim Holtz’s Oxide Inks onto a piece of white card stock.

After sponging on the colors over the stencil, I used the Spellbinders Curved Borders Two dies to cut off the upper right corner.

Then I stamped my sentiment at the top right corner of a white A2 card base.  The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Pen & Ink stamp set.

I used foam tape to attach the floral piece to the card base.

See the paper rose at the bottom left of the card?  I made it with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Stamp Set and Botanical Wings Die Set and attached it to the card.  To finish the card, I added a few sequins.

I am submitting this card for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week.

May you find inspiration from this card!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!

Do you have a favorite spring flower?  Mine is a tulip, and when I lived in Northern Virginia, I had a beautiful tulip garden with many varieties and colors.  I miss my garden as living in southwest Florida, tulips are shipped in and will not grow in a garden!  Thus, I get satisfaction by making cards with tulips.  This card is a Guneaux Designs First Blooms card.  It features Penny Black’s First Blooms dies.

I die cut the tulips from white card stock and colored them peach and yellow with green stems using Copics Sketch Markers.  I used a stylus and foam pad to shape the flowers.

The other feature on the card is the gorgeous frame.  I cut the frame from white card stock using the Impression Obsession Ornate Square Frame Dies.  The frame cuts out two square frames and one square.  I wanted to try the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks which I purchased recently.  I used them to color the square and square frame, leaving the ornate frame white.

When assembling the card, I glued four of the ornate frames together and cut another one and added two rows of foam tape to get dimension.  I added this frame on top of the others.

Enjoy Guneaux Designs First Blooms card, and have a wonderful day!
