SU Polka Dots & Paisley & Paisley Prints

I enjoyed last week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge so much that I made a second card using the color combination.  This card features two retired stamp sets; SU Polka Dots & Paisley & Paisley Prints.  The card can serve as a thank you or valentine card.  I added a “thanks” sentiment; however, that can be removed and a valentine sentiment added.

I used the Stamping Color Resist Technique to create the front panel on the card. Using VersaMark Ink, I stamped the paisley stamp from the SU Polka Dots & Paisley Stamp Set around the piece of Neenah Solar White card stock.  I also used VersaMark Ink to stamp a heart around the card.  The heart stamp is from Catherine Pooler’s Candy Cane Stamp Collection.

I then added SU Clear Embossing Powder onto this panel and heat set it.  Using the colors of the Color Challenge (i.e., SU Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, and Wild Wasabi), I sponged the ink around the white card stock panel and rubbed off the ink on the embossing. I think it is amazing how the clear embossing powder turns white!  This process is the Color Resist Technique.

I then used two paisley heart stamps from the SU Paisley Prints stamp set, inked them with Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi, and stamped them onto white card stock.  I cut out the hearts using the Hero Arts Hearts Infinity Dies.  I embossed the two small hearts with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and adhered the three hearts onto the panel with double-sided foam tape.  I used the ODBD Thanks Die to cut out my “thanks” sentiment and finished the card.

Feedback I received from Splitcoastampers members is located HERE!

 REVELATION 22:12-13 (NIV)

The writer of Revelations, St. John The Divine, shared the Word of God through Jesus Christ:  “Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  I am the  Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” 

SU Rose Garden Thinlits Inlay Thank You Card

Hello, my friends!  Thanks for stopping by to view my latest project; SU Rose Garden Thinlits Inlay Thank You Card!  As the title indicates, I used the Inlay Technique to create the card.

I made this card for two reasons: 1) to thank my wonderful daughter who always looks out for me, and 2) to respond to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.  The colors for the challenge is SU Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, and Wild Wasabi.

Creating the card, I first used the SU Rose Garden Thinlits Dies to cut out a White, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Wisteria Wonder Rose.

I took the negative of the Soft Sky cut out and adhere it to my card base.  Then I attached the White Rose cut out within the Soft Sky cut out.

Using the Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Wisteria Wonder cut out pieces, I inlaid them into the White Rose cut out.

I stamped my Thank You sentiment onto a cut out using Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Many Thanks Stamp Set and ODBD Layered Lacey Ovals Dies.  To embellish the card, I added Clear Wink of Stella onto the rose and attached Wild Wasabi and Wisteria Wonder enamel dots (SU retired product) on two corners.  I then added three butterflies I cut out with a retired Sizzix Butterfly Wings Embosslit.

Hopefully you are inspired by my card, and leave a comment!

 JAMES 1:19-21

James writes to the twelve Jewish tribes that are scattered among the nations:  “My dear brothers, take note of this:  Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.  Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”

CottageCutz Party Puppy

Welcome to Guneaux Designs!!  Today I have a quick post regarding a cute card I made several weeks ago and sent to the Tri-County Humane Society in Minnesota.  The card features the CottageCutz Party Puppy die, and it is a “Thank You” card for those who care for homeless animals and provide other great services for the area.

I also submitted the card for a Splitcoaststampers challenge to make this type of card with a holiday theme.  I actually do not own a pet, but I sure get a lot of love from my daughters’ pets. They are very special to our family.

This photo is a closeup of the cute little puppy!  I added a bell on a piece of bakers twine around his neck.

The birth of Jesus (cont’d):  “When he [King Herod] had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.  “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:  ” ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for our of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.’ ”  Matthew 2:3-6
