SU Out West

SU Out West

Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper for this week is Susy Kegal (aka Boss).  The object of being a featured stamper is for others to case your work.  Susy has a fantastic gallery from which to pick a card to case.  After spending time viewing a lot of Susy’s gorgeous gallery, I kept coming back to this Boots Scootin’ card, so I had to case it. The boots on Susy’s and my cards are the only similar element.  When I saw her card, I was reminded of the Stampin’ Up! (SU) Out West stamp set that is retired and contains a pair of boots.  Thus, I used the SU Out West stamp set for my card.


Ephesians 2:4-7

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”

Heartfelt Creations Young At Heart

Does this card bring back memories for you?  I created the card using the Heartfelt Creations Young At Heart collection, and it certainly brought back very happy moments for me.  I guess you have to be in your 50s or older for it to cause you to remember when you were “Young at Heart”.  LOL

I made the card to submit to last week’s Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  I love the colors Karen Barber selected for the Color Challenge. They are SU Wild Wasabi, Powder Pink, So Saffron, and Soft Sky.  My card was selected as the Color Challenge Favorite on Splitcoaststampers!


Matthew 12:34-36

Jesus said: “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good?  For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.  The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.”

Pretty Posies

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to enjoy my Pretty Posies card.

I created this card in honor of a “Featured Stamper” on Splitcoaststampers.com, Diane (HappyinMarco).  Diane has a gorgeous and unique gallery, and it was difficult to choose one card to case.  However, as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew it was the one.

I love the blue colors, butterflies, and leaves on Diane’s card, and I added those elements to my card, but in a different manner.  My main panel is blueish-green and I created it by sponging and blending several Distress Oxide Inks.  Instead of die cut stems and leaves as are on Diane’s card, I embossed my main panel with a stems and leaves embossing folder.  I added two butterflies as she did.  However, mine are from a different die cut, assorted colors, and located differently on the card.  I added a paper flower to my card that I created with ODBD Pretty Posies Die Set.


Paper: Neenah Soler White, PTI Lemon Tart, PTI Hawaiian Shores, and PTI Simply Chartreuse
Ink: Distress Oxide Inks
Accessories: ODBD Pretty Posies Dies, SU Butterfly Dies, CottageCutz Expressions Plus Hello, Sequins, AG Embossing Folder, Sequins, and Prills
Techniques: Sponging and Blending

Luke 14:1 – 3

One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched.  There in front of him was a man suffering from dropsy.  Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?”  But they remained silent.  So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him away.”

Card Made With Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window

Card Made With Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window

Welcome to Guneaux Designs.  My project share today is a card made with Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window Die.  I love the Botanic Window Die as it can be used to create various styles of windows and well as non-window projects (i.e., ornaments, etc.).  Here is the card I made with the die.

My card also features the Heartfelt Creations (HC) Classic Petunia Bouquet Stamp Set and Matching Die, and the HC Small Classic Petunia Stamp Set and Matching Die.  

If you click on the above link of the  Botanical Window Die link, you’ll see that I used only the outside portion of the window die on my card.  I added to the back of the window a beautiful floral vellum, and to the front the hanging basket of floral images.

I submitted this card to Splitcoaststampers.com for two challenges; a color challenge and sketch challenge

Thanks for stopping by to enjoy my card made with Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window!

Spellbinders Victorian Arch

SPELLBINDERS VICTORIAN ARCH

Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs.  Today’s card share features the Spellbinders Victorian Arch Dies.  I have had these dies for over a year but have not used them.  I decided to use them yesterday to respond to a Splitcoaststamper.com challenge related to hand fans.  When I read the challenge, I immediately thought of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies as they remind me of a hand fan.

This is a photo of the Spellbinders Victorian Arch dies:

I used the dies and white card stock to cut out the arch.  I decorated the white arch with Nuvo Crystal Drops Bubblegum Blush drops and Heartfelt Creations Crystal Clear sparkly granules.  Subsequently, I cut a second Spellbinders Victorian Arch with white card stock on a foam sheet.  I did not want the small cutouts to come out of the die cut, and the adhesive foam sheet kept them in.  I colored the arch with a light green ink and adhered the first arch over top of the second one.

I cut a piece of designer paper from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding Collection and attached it to my card base made from Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow card stock (retired).  I used a Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride marker to outline the roses on the designer paper.  Then I attached the Spellbinders Victorian Arch onto the designer paper.

I wanted a butterfly to fill in the left side of the card.  Therefore, I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings Stamp Set and matching Die to create a butterfly.  Using green and pink Distress Oxide inks, I sponged the colors onto the butterfly and attached it to the arch with its wings raised.

For my “hugs” sentiment, I used a CottageCutz Hugs Phase Die to cut three Mossy Meadow “hugs”.  I adhered the three together and covered them with VersaMark® Watermark Ink.  I added clear embossing powder on the sentiment, heat set it, and attached it to the card.

I would love for you to share your thoughts about the card.  Feel free to leave a comment(s).

DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia

Welcome!!  Are you thinking, “What is DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia“?  Just seeing the post title without the details would cause me to ask that question!  Let me explain.  DTGD17Benzi is the title of a Splitcoaststampers.com challenge.  It stands for Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD), 2017, hosted by “Benzi”, Brenda, a fantastic artist on Splitcoaststampers.com.  The Classic Petunia is the stamp set and dies I used when creating my card that I am sharing today.

The yearly DTGD challenges are for Club Members only of Splitcoaststampers.com.  If you are not a Club Member, you can become one by signing up on the Splitcoaststampers.com site.  Because the challenges are “secret”, I cannot share the details of the challenge featured on my card.

Here is my card that I made for Brenda’s DTGD Challenge, DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia.   The Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp Set and Dies are the main features on this card.

Here are additional photos of the card:

Colossians 2:8

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”
