1 JOHN 2:15-17

“Do not love the world or anything in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For everything in the world — the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does — comes not from the Father but from the world.  The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”

MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Happy Birthday

Hello, my friends, and welcome to Guneaux Designs.  I am happy that you stopped by today to see my MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Happy Birthday card.  Memory Box (MB) has wonderful dies, and this is one of my favorites.  I love butterflies, and seeing them on greeting cards always draws my attention.  I have used the MB Reverse Butterfly Collage Die  before, but as a stencil.  You can see that HERE.  For this card, I used the die to cut out a butterfly panel to attach over another panel that is sponged with various colors.

I used a piece of white card stock and an ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles die to cut out a frame.  Using the frame and Memory Box Reverse Butterfly Collage die, I cut out the butterflies.  I used the same ODBD die to cut out another piece of white card stock on which I sponged various Stampin’ Up! inks. Subsequently, I dabbed  All Purpose Ink (Frost White) over the panel with a piece of plastic wrap.  This photo shows the result.

I love the effect of using the All Purpose Frost White Ink!  I think it adds so much to a piece of sponged card stock.

I attached the sponged panel beneath the butterfly panel, and then attached both to the card base.  I think this qualifies as a Clean and Simple card.  I hope it does as I am submitting it to a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge.  Kathy Curry is the hostess of the challenge, and she asked for participants to “show me your favorite winged things this week”.  Butterflies are one of my favorite “winged things”.

To finish the card, I added a “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the ODBD Seeds of Today stamp set.  I used the smallest of the ODBD Ornate Ovals die to create a frame for the sentiment, and added it to the card using double-sided foam tape.

JAMES 5:13-16

“Is anyone of you in trouble?  He should pray.  Is anyone happy?  Let him sing songs of praise.  Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” 

CottageCutz Daffodil Flower – March

CottageCutz Daffodil Flower – March

Hello, my friends!  WeIcome to Guneaux Designs.  As a  guest designer for the Scrapping Cottage, I  have for you a project featuring the CottageCutz Daffodil Flower – March stamp and coordinating die set.

Speaking of March, did you know that the  month of March is synonymous with the onset of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Accordingly, the flower associated with the month of March is the Daffodil.  The Scrapping Cottage has a stamp and coordinating die for the flower of each month. Check out these beautiful stamps and dies HERE.

Moving on, here is the card I made with the beautiful CottageCutz Daffodil Flower – March stamp.

My Daffodil is designed after the Fortissimo Daffodil that has yellow petals and a cup of glowing orange to red.  Here is a picture of the flower.

I made the card as a “Big Flap” card, and you can make this card too by following these instructions:

Step 1.  Stamp the CottageCutz Daffodil Flower onto a piece of white card stock.  I wanted a “no-line coloring” image; therefore, I used different colors of markers to add ink to sections of the image and stamped them separately.  I used yellow for the petals of the daffodil, peach for the cup, green for the leaves and stems, and gray for the rocks.

Step 2.  Color the image as desired.  I used various Copic Sketch Markers to color my image.  After coloring it, I used the two largest dies from the CottageCutz Stitched Rounded Rectangle Set to cut out the image.  Also, I stamped, colored, fussy cut, and attached the butterfly that is part of the CuttageCutz Daffodil Flower – March set using foam tape.

Step 3.  Set aside the image and start creating the card base.

Step 4.  Cut a 5-1/2″ x 10″ piece of card stock (your choice of color).

Step 5.  Place the card stock horizontally onto a score board and score at the 4″ and 8-1/4″  marks.

Step 6.  Fold the score lines toward each other.

Step 7.  Select a double-sided designer paper and cut two 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces, and two 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ pieces.

 Step 8.  Attach one of the 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″  pieces of designer paper to the larger flap on the front of the card base.

Step 9.  Attach one of the 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ pieces of designer paper to the small flap on the front of the card base.  (I selected the same side of the designer paper for the front.)

Step 10.  Attach the second 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of designer paper onto the inside large flap.  I used the other side of the designer paper.

Step 11.  Attach the second 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of designer paper onto the inside small flap..

Step 12.  Cut a piece of white card stock with the largest die from the CottageCutz Stitched Rounded Rectangle Set 

Step 13.  Attach the outside frame cut from the image (see Step 2.) to the piece of white card stock using a double layer of double-sided foam tape.

Step 14.  Attach the image inside of the above frame. 

Step 15.  Apply a strong adhesive to the back left side of the above image piece.  

Step 16.  Close both flaps of the card base with the right one over the left one.  Attach the framed image to the front large flap of the card base, ensuring it is centered over the front and not attached to the right small flap of the card.  The strong adhesive is necessary to ensure the image piece will not come off as the card is opened and closed.

Step 17.  Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of card stock, add a sentiment and/or an embellishment, and attach to the center of the inside of the card.

Step 18.  Embellish the card as desired.  I cut several small flowers using the   CottageCutz Tree of Nature Die.  I cupped them with a stylus and adhered micro beads to the centers.  I used the CottageCutz Winter Branches Die to cut green stems (not branches LOL) for the tiny flowers and added them to the two corners of my card front and the center piece inside the card. 

I hope you are inspired by my CottageCutz Daffodil Flower – March card.
