Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Patriotic Card


Hello, my stamping friends!  A heartfelt thank you for stopping by Guneaux Designs.  If you have stopped by in the last several weeks, you may have noticed that I have used Heartfelt Creations products to create a few cards.  I have fallen in love with their products!  🙂  This card share today is a Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Patriotic Card.  

This card is for this week’s Color Challenge, CC640 on Splitcoaststampers. The hostess chose a wonderful color combination of SU Dapper Denim, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White.  As a “dessert” option, she asked for something patriotic.

When I think of the word, patriotic, the American flag comes to mind.  However, the definition of patriotic is, “of, like, suitable for, or characteristic of a patriot”, or something that represents the love of one’s country.  Giving thought to that, I decided not to use a flag image, but to use the National Flower of the United States, which is a rose. The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States in 1986. Thus, I made a white paper rose the main feature of my card.

To create my card base, I decided to fold the front in the form of a “V” for victory.  Then as I was adding the patriotic ribbon, I realized that the form of the card front with the ribbon appears as a metal that one would receive for a significant achievement (e.g., gold medal for the USA). That reinforced my thought process regarding how to decorate the card.

The white sentiment is difficult to read as it is a small print and embossed.  It says, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible. George Washington”.  I love the sentiment and am in total agreement with it.  The sentiment is from an ODBD stamp set, God Bless America.With all of that being shared, when I look at the card, patriotic is the word that quickly comes to mind. I hope you enjoy the card!

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!
