Papertrey Ink Gran’s Garden

Today’s card share features two Papertrey Ink stamp sets – the Papertrey Ink Gran’s Garden and Papertrey Ink Pen and Ink.

I created this card for three challenges on  Splitcoaststampers.com.

1. Technique Lovers Challenge – Use bubble wrap,

2. Clean And Simple Challenge – Create a friendship card, and

3. Color Challenge – Use SU Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, and Pacific Point colors.

I used the Papertrey Ink Gran’s Garden Stamp Set to stamp, and double stamp, the floral images on the card in SU Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, and Pacific Point inks. The sentiment, stamped in Pacific Point ink, is from the Papertrey Ink’s Pen & Ink stamp set.

I had a small piece of bubble wrap that I covered in Daffodil Delight ink and stamped on the upper-left and bottom-right corners.  I adhered three yellow floral sequins over the bubble wrap imprint on both corners.

This is a clean and simply card!  Enjoy!

Hebrews 13:4 & 5

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.  Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ “

Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Card

Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Card

Happy Saturday, and thanks for stopping by to see my card share today that features the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp and Die!

I made this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers challenge, the Ways To Use It Challenge.  The challenge was to use strips of paper on your card.

To create the card, I cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of white card stock and scored it diagonally using a scoring tool. Hopefully you can see the score lines. Then I cut 1/8″ strips of paper and attached them diagonally to the scored piece in a weaved pattern.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamps and Dies to cut, color, and form the flowers.  Except for the white flowers, I used copics to color the flowers.  I formed the flowers and their leaves with a stylus and added prills in the centers.  Then I added Heartfelt Creations Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear around the edges.  The Crystal Clear is sparkles.

I attached the flowers to the scored and stripped piece after I added a green piece of ribbon. I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Collection paper pad.

I have fallen in love with Heartfelt Creations, and I am enjoying making cards with its products.  I hope you like this one!  Tell me what you think of it!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Proverbs 3:1-4

“My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong our life many years and bring you prosperity.  Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia

Hello, my friends, and thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  Have you seen the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia collection?  The collection is beautiful, and recently I fell in love with it and had to purchased the collection.  I am showcasing the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia collection by using the Small and Large Classic Petunia Stamp Sets and matching Dies on my beautiful card share for today.

I created my card with a 6″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock that I folded to create a 4-1/4″ x 6″ card base.  I wanted to use the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval die to cut out a 2″ section of the front of the card base.  What a task that was!  But I was successful.  The key to achieving this is the placement of the cutting plates for my die-cutting machine. The bottom cutting plate is lined up differently from the top plate when running the card base and die through the machine.

After cutting the card base with the oval die, I cut out another 2″ Decorative Oval section from white card stock and attached that to the back of the card base oval, lining it up carefully!  I used 110 LB card stock; therefore, the second oval added additional support for the card.

I used a yellow Copic Sketch Marker to color some SU Basic Pearls and attached them to the oval die cut, as you can see in the above photo.  The photo also shows the sentiment that is from the Heartfelt Classic Petunia Paper Collection.

My next step was to stamp, cut out, color, decorate, and assemble the small and large petunias.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia dies to cut out the petals and leaves from Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them with Copic markers closely related to the SU Sweet Sugarplum color.  This color was selected to response to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (i.e., Sweet Sugarplum, Daffodil Delight, and Wild Wasabi).  After coloring and assembling the flowers, I added some SU glitter to the ends of the petals and White Prills to the centers.

Then I attached the flowers to the left side of the card base.

I hope you find inspiration from my Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia card.  Here are a couple photos of the card taken at different angles.

I also submitted this card for two other Splitcoaststampers challenges.  One is a sketch challenge, and the other a Ways To Use It Challenge (i.e., add pearls to a project).

1 John 3:1

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  And that is what we are!  The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

Otterly Awesome

Essentials by Ellen has some fantastic stamps and matching dies.  Her Otterly Awesome stamp set and matching die are so adorable!  I am sharing a card I made that showcases the Otterly Awesome stamp set.

But first, I want to share that my two-year old granddaughter LOVES to craft with me, and I LOVE spending time with her crafting.  She and I have been crafting together since she was a little over one-year old.  She is amazing and has learned so much in that short time. She knows how to put paper and a die onto my die-cutting machine and turn the handle to cut out the items.  I could fill this post with information about her crafting skills, but I will stop.  But I will say that one day she will be a fantastic card maker.  You can see one of her cards at the bottom of this post.

Aren’t the otters so cute!!  Mommy otter is holding her little otter baby while enjoying the water in this ocean scene.  When die cutting the mommy otter, her arms are cut so she is able to hold her little one.

To make this card, I:

  • Stamped, colored, and die cut the two otters,
  • Placed the baby otter in mommy otter’s arms, popping up the baby with foam dots to give it some dimension,
  • Stamped, colored, and die cut the fish, starfish, and clam shell,
  • Used the Otter Ware Stamp Set to stamp and color the seaweed onto a white card stock base,
  • Used copic sketch markers to color the ocean,
  • Attached the otters to the card base,
  • Stamped the sentiment using stamps from both stamp sets, and
  • Added sequins to the card.

I enjoyed making this fun card, and my granddaughter loved the stamps and dies also. She created the following card.  I sponged some color onto the card base for her, and she selected, stamped, die cut, colored, and attached the items where she wanted them.  If you have never seen a pine tree in an ocean, you can now say you have!

I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend remembering the ones who have defended our great country, the USA, and sacrificed their lives so we could have freedom!

1 Thessalonians 4:13  & 14

“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.  We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”

CottageCutz Pram & Precious Dies

Hello, friends and thank you for stopping by.  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog.  I am featuring one of the beautiful, recently released Expressions Plus Design Dies, “Precious” and the CottageCutz Pram Die from the April CottageCutz Baby Designs Release.  I think that the CottageCutz Pram & Precious Dies are a perfect match!

I love the new CottageCutz script dies as they are made with such a beautiful font.  They are also a wonderful size.  The “precious” die used on this card is approximate 4″W x 1″H.  And the darling vintage baby carriage, also showcased on this card, is an awesome die. One can make so many variations of the carriage by using different colors of card stock and other crafting products.  I wanted to dress this one up, so I added pearls and sparkling glitter.  May this card inspire you to try the CottageCutz Pram die to create such a beauty!

SUPPLIES USED AND STEPS FOR CREATING THE CARD

Supplies:

Steps:

  • Cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of pink card stock and fold it in the middle for the card base
  • Cut a 6″ x 6″ piece of designer paper with shades of pink and green
  • Adhere the 6″ x 6″ designer paper to the front of the card base
  • Using the CottageCutz Pram Die, cut the baby carriage from a piece of white card stock, and repeat with pink card stock

  • Adhere the pieces together (I attached one carriage to another to offset mine)

  • Cover the center piece of the carriage with white sparkly glitter
  • Add crafting pearls to the carriage

  • Attach this to the center of the card front (as seen in the first photo)
  • Cut out several pink flowers using the CottageCutz Tree of Nature Die

  • Cut out several green stems and leaves using the CottageCutz Grass, Trees & Vines die

  • Attach the flowers to the stems
  • Add pink stickles to the center of the flowers
  • Add the stems and flowers to the bottom and left side of the card
  • Cut out the “precious” sentiment from pink card stock using the CottageCutz Precious Die and add it to the top center of the card

  • Cut out a flower using the CottageCutz 3-D Flower #7 die
  • Shape with a stylus the three smallest flowers, cover them with a white glitter, adhere them together, and add Prills to the center

  • Attach the flower to the bottom, right of the card front

That finishes the card, and there are more photos below.  Let me know what your thoughts are about this card by leaving comments.  I love reading comments!

Hero Arts Mermaid

Hello, my friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs and, if you leave a comment, I am very grateful to you!  Today I have a card share featuring the newly released Hero Arts Mermaid.  Mermaid cards are not my norm; however, I decided to give it a try as I wanted to participate in a Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) Free For All Challenge hosted by the remarkable artist, Robin Clendenning.  Her challenge was to create a card that represents “What’s In Your Garden”.  A mermaid was one of her examples, so I chose that to challenge myself.

Here is the Hero Arts Mermaid card:

I received the new Hero Arts Mermaid stamp in the mail yesterday and was not sure how to showcase it.  Therefore, I checked YouTube and found Ilina Crouse’s video on coloring the image. I tried to replicate her work!  I know, no one can replicate her wonderful artwork. But I tried.  Ilina, thanks for your inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed the card.  If interested, you can see the SCS comments HERE.
