Punch Art Christmas Card

Welcome to Guneaux Designs!  I have a gorgeous card for you today.  It is a Punch Art Christmas Card that I made using the old Stampin’ Up! owl punch!  I created the card for a Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge was to create a card including a Christmas tree and that would be an unusual card/tree for your normal style.  When I read the challenge, I knew immediately what I would create.

Whimsy Stamps Snowman String Of Hearts

Yesterday I shared with you that I would have another whimsical card for you today.  This card features the Whimsy Stamps Snowman String of Hearts stamp, another stamp designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps.  I made the card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers Free for All Challenge.   Shirley (Wannabcre8tive) hosted the Free for All Challenge, and she asked us to make a Valentine. This is my card for her challenge. I was thankful for her easy challenge.

I stamped the image onto Solar White Card Shock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I used Copic Sketch Markers to color the image.  I used a piece of water color paper, water, paint brush, and brushos to a create the greenish background panel.  I attempted to get the brusho colors close to the color of the snowman’s coat.  I then used one of the ODBD Snowflake Sky Dies to cut the water color paper into a frame. I used American Crafts Glitter Paper to cut out the white glitter snowflakes with the Taylored Expressions Snowflake Confetti Die and added them to the image frame. Lastly, I added a ribbon that is close in color to the snowman’s hat and scarf.

1 JOHN 4:1-3

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God:  Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.  This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.”

Whimsy Stamps Horsey Holiday Digital Stamp

Hello, Crafting Friends!  I have for you today a card featuring the darling Whimsy Stamps Horsey Holiday Digital Stamp.  I made the card for a Splitcoaststampers “Ways To Use It Challenge”, “Hear Them Ring”.  The challenge was hosted by Toni (ravengirl) and she asked the participants to add bells to the projects submitted for the challenge.

I have not been a whimsical type of artist until lately when I discovered an outstanding designer and artist who designs whimsical stamps.  Her name is Crissy Armstrong and she is an awesome colorist.  She is an advanced level certified Copic artist and her work is fantastic.  Her coloring makes all of her work subjects look so real.  She is a member of Splitcoaststampers, and you can see some of her work HERE.  She designs rubber stamps for a company called Whimsy Stamps.

This is my card that I created with one of her designs.  The digital image of the horse can be found HERE.

If you have questions about the products used, please leave them in the comment section. Enjoy, and come back tomorrow for another whimsical card!

 REVELATION 22:14-16 (NIV)

Continuation of St. John The Divine’s sharing the Word of God through Jesus Christ:  “Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.  Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.  I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.  I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
