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!

“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.”

Happy Sunday to you!!!  Thanks for stopping by to see my project that I created with stamps from Hero Arts July Monthly Kit.  

For the longest time, I have wanted a garden trellis on which I would hang garden boots filled with garden soil and flowers.  I would place the trellis in my back-yard garden. Unfortunately, I have yet to achieve that dream, but maybe one day.

My card brings me joy as in my mind it is a replica of my dream.  I see behind the trellis my garden with the bright Florida sun and beautiful sky.  I see my garden flowers behind the trellis which are difficult for you to see, but they are there.  I created them by stamping in black ink floral images from an old Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, the Garden Silhouettes.  My boots (shoes) represent those I envision hanging on my trellis with beautiful flowers growing out of the top of the boots.

After stamping and coloring my flowers, I fussy cut them, as well as the boots.  I hope one day to bring my dream to fruition!

I submitted this card for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers.com.

Welcome!!  Thanks for stopping by to see my latest piece of artwork; a card featuring the Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp.  I think the floral image is gorgeous.

I created this card for two Splitcoaststampers.com challenges.  One challenge is the Color Challenge for this week.  The hostess for the challenge selected a beautiful color combination of POWDER PINK, SWEET SUGAR PLUM, and MINT MACARON. These are Stampin’ Up! colors.

Because I do not have the Stampin’ Up! colors, I used Copic Sketch Markers in similar colors.  This following photo shows a closeup of the colored floral image.

You can also see the bling I added to the pink oval around the image.  I used the Heartfelt Creation Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glossy granules on the oval. The oval and first layer on the card are from Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Collection Designer Paper.

The second Splitcoaststampers.com challenge for which I made this card is the DTGD17CherylQuilts, Dare To Get Dirty challenge.  As I have shared in my last two posts, I cannot provide what this challenge entails.

To finish the card, I adhered the designer paper and floral image to a white card stock base and added some drops of Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to see my card featuring the Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp.

Matthew 12:39 & 40

Jesus said, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign!  But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.  For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
