Happy Mother’s Day Card

Thanks for stopping by Stamping With Guneaux Designs by Beverly Polen!!  My card share today is a Happy Mother’s Day Card.  Mother’s Day is this weekend and my card is for one of my daughters.  I have made another Happy Mother’s Day Card for my other daughter.  Both ladies are fantastic mothers, and I am so proud of them and how they are raising their children!

Have you tried the new Tim Holtz Oxide Inks?  I LOVE them!  They are fantastic for regular coloring, blended coloring, and any other type of coloring!  I used them to create the flowers and Happy Mother’s Day sentiment on this card.  Actually, I used an extra panel I had created for the CottageCutz Baby Lamb on the Moon card featured below and on the Scrapping Cottage Blog.

This is the panel I used for cutting the flowers and sentiment.  You may check my last post to learn how I created the panel.

To make the flowers, I used the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Die to cut out the flowers.  This die comes with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings Die Set.  I assembled four instead of a normal odd numbers of flowers in response to the following Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Sketch challenge.  If desired, you can read the SCS comments HERE!

The gorgeous die cut behind the flowers was made with the Papertrey Ink Mix and Mat Scallops Die.  I think the die is awesome.  To finish the card, I added a swirl of rhinestones (and a bow) which you can better see in the below picture.

May you be inspired by my Happy Mother’s Day Card and try the Tim Holtz Oxide Inks!

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.  This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.” 

CottageCutz Baby Lamb on the Moon

Hello, friends, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  Today I am a guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage Blog, and I have a lovely card featuring a recently released CottageCutz Baby Lamb on the Moon die.  I think the baby lamb is so cute!

The card design is a Z-Fold with ovals cut out from the first and second sections.  You can see through the ovals to the main element on the back section of the card, which is the CottageCutz Baby Lamb on the Moon.   I have not seen before a Z-Fold card with the first two sections cut out for windows to see through to the main image on the back section.  If there is no such design in the crafting world, I guess I just created a new Z-Fold card design.  LOL!

To create my Z-Fold card, I cut from white card stock the pieces from the lovely CottageCutz Baby Lamb on the Moon Die.

I colored the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers, adding a touch of gray to the moon.  Afterwards, I glued the pieces together.

Using the second and third to the largest CottageCutz Double-Stitched Oval Dies, I cut out an oval and frame from white card stock.  I later colored the frame with a yellow copic marker.  I also cut a second frame with the largest and second to the largest dies and color it yellow.

I colored the oval with two of the new Tim Holtz Oxide Ink Pads (i.e., faded jeans, and broken china).  I used the lighter blue for the center of the oval for the moon’s glow.

Then, I cut a 10-13/16″ x 5-1/2″ piece of white card stock and, on the 10-13/16″ side, scored at the 3-5/8″ and 7-1/4″ measurements.  The 3-5/8″ score line is a mountain fold and the 7-1/4″ score line is a valley fold.  At this point,  I did not fold the card stock on the score lines until I finished additional steps.

I wanted to create the appearance of a galaxy; therefore, I sponged three of the Tim Holtz Oxide Inks (i.e., fossilized amber, faded jeans, and broken china) onto the card stock and spritzed it lightly with water.  After drying, I used a toothbrush and diluted white acrylic paint to splatter paint onto the colored card stock.

After that dried, I turned the card stock over and colored the center section with the same inks, spritzed with water, and splattered with acrylic paint. When the card is finished, this section will be the inside center fold.

Before folding on the score lines, I placed the second largest Double-Stitched Oval Die on the first section of the card and the third largest die on the center section, centering them as much as possible.  I ran the card stock and dies through my die cutting machine.

I then folded the card on the score lines, and the following photo shows result.

Next, I assembled the card by attaching the baby lamb and moon onto the oval previously colored and adhered it to the last section of the card.  I used an old star stamp to stamp, emboss, fussy cut, and add to this piece.

Then I added the largest yellow frame to the first section of the card and the smaller yellow frame to the inside center section.

When the card is folded closed, the middle section that was inked on the back will show as the second section.  It does not have a yellow oval frame on it.

I did not add other embellishments to the card as I did not want to distract from the “galaxy” effect on the card.  A sentiment will be added when I know who is the recipient.

I hope you enjoy this card and take time to browse the recently released BABY and SCRIPT DESIGN DIES!  The script dies are 25% off for a limited time!  Have a blessed day!

JAMES 5:1-6

 “Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you.  Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.  Your gold and silver are corroded.  Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire.  You have hoarded wealth in the last days.  Look!  The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you.  The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.  You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence.  You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.  You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.”

Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  My card share for you showcases Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace, which is a “Make it Market Mini Kit”.  The Kit includes Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stamp set & index label, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace die collection, Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace stencil collection (set of 3), and Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace paper collection (18 A2 sheets).  I used one of the Lovely Lace stencils in the kit to create this card.

I used the following stencil from the kit, and sponged Tim Holtz’s Oxide Inks onto a piece of white card stock.

After sponging on the colors over the stencil, I used the Spellbinders Curved Borders Two dies to cut off the upper right corner.

Then I stamped my sentiment at the top right corner of a white A2 card base.  The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Pen & Ink stamp set.

Paertrey Ink Lovely Lace

I used foam tape to attach the floral piece to the card base.

See the paper rose at the bottom left of the card?  I made it with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Stamp Set and Botanical Wings Die Set and attached it to the card.  To finish the card, I added a few sequins.

I am submitting this card for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week.

May you find inspiration from this card!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!
