CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up

COTTAGECUTZ JOLLY SNOWMAN HEADS UP

Welcome!!  I have a card share for you today that should bring laughter for you!  My card is a CottageCutz Jolly Snowman Heads Up card.  This week on Splitcoaststampers.com, there is a Clean and Simple Challenge that is titled, “Head in the Clouds”.  The challenge hostess wanted to see creations around this theme.  I decided to take the challenge literally.  So my card features the CottageCutz Jolly Snowman with his head in the clouds attached by black thread to the snowman’s arm.  I thought a “Heads Up” sentiment would be appropriate.

I wanted a cloudy background for a snowy scene, thus I cut some card stock in scallops of various sizes and used that as a cloud template.  Using the template, I sponged on some blue Hero Arts Distress Oxide inks and spritzed the clouds with water to get the appearance of it snowing.

Subsequently, I cut some snowbanks, covered them with sparkly crystal granules, and attached them to the card base.

Enjoy the card, and let me know if it made you laugh!

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”

 

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).

“Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.  And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head – it is as though her head were shaved.”

Power Poppy Sunset Sway Digital Stamp

Power Poppy Sunset Digital Stamp

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.”
