Paper Layering Mermaid Card

PAPER LAYERING MERMAID CARD – GUNEAUX DESIGNS

Today I am sharing a Hero Arts Paper Layering Mermaid Card.  Isn’t she so gorgeous!!  I think so!!

On Splitcoaststampers.com, a member, Maura (beesmom), selected a wonderful combination of colors for last week’s color challenge!  Her colors are SU Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist, and her dessert is “birthdays”.

Although I think this combination of colors is so beautiful, I struggled with it initially. I made three cards working with the colors and was not happy with any except this one. Now that I have created a project with the colors, I am sure it will be one I use again.

I have no products in the SU Lemon Lime Twist color, so I had to improvise by using copics and closely related paper.  I used the Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay in card stock only.  For these two colors, I also used copics in addition to Hero Arts Distress Oxide Inks.

I created the mermaid with a Hero Arts Paper Layering Mermaid Die that I have had for 3 months but was not sure how to use it, quite frankly.  I had not used a “paper layering” die before.  I think I determined how to use it, but if I didn’t, that’s OK with me.

I colored the mermaid with copics and die cut her. I lifted the scales and the end of her tail and covered them with sparkles. I also lifted her arms and hair, where possible, and adhered the remaining portions of the die cut to the color-blended panel. I made the panel by sponging distress oxide inks, spritzing a stencil, and laying the wet stencil over the panel. I added seaweed and lots of sequins for bubbles.

My card is a birthday card, but I chose to use a “celebrate” sentiment.

Luke 14:12-14

Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.  Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

Hero Arts July Monthly Kit

Happy Sunday to you!!!  Thanks for stopping by to see my project that I created with stamps from Hero Arts July Monthly Kit.  

For the longest time, I have wanted a garden trellis on which I would hang garden boots filled with garden soil and flowers.  I would place the trellis in my back-yard garden. Unfortunately, I have yet to achieve that dream, but maybe one day.

My card brings me joy as in my mind it is a replica of my dream.  I see behind the trellis my garden with the bright Florida sun and beautiful sky.  I see my garden flowers behind the trellis which are difficult for you to see, but they are there.  I created them by stamping in black ink floral images from an old Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, the Garden Silhouettes.  My boots (shoes) represent those I envision hanging on my trellis with beautiful flowers growing out of the top of the boots.

After stamping and coloring my flowers, I fussy cut them, as well as the boots.  I hope one day to bring my dream to fruition!

I submitted this card for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers.com.

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!

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).
