Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal

Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal

Hello, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  I greatly appreciate your visit, and hope you are inspired by my creations.  My creation for you today is a card that features the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal Stamp Set.  I made this card in response to a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com (SCS).

Each Sunday, SCS selects a member of the site to serve as the “Featured Stamper” for the week.  Other members may CASE one or more of the Featured Stamper’s cards and post it into the related gallery.  My card is a CASE of Karen’s (aka. Art Deco Diva) card featuring the same cardinal.  You can see hers HERE.


Luke 20:45-47

“While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, “Beware of the teachers of the law.  They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.  They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers.  Such men will be punished most severely.”


The only similarity between Karen’s and my card is the gorgeous Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal.  Her card includes different colors, embossing, and stamp. To create my card, I stamped with VersaMark ink the grouping of trees and heat embossed them with a sparkly embossing power.  I sponged Gina K Designs blue ink onto this piece to create the sky and snow banks (which are difficult to see).  I die cut this piece at an angle with an oval die.

Subsequently, I cut a piece of white card stock and dry embossed it with an old Sizzix Impressions Plate. I covered the dry embossed piece with VersaMark Ink, spread a sparkly embossing powder over the piece, and applied a heat gun. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to see both. IRL, it is quite sparkly.

I die cut the center of the dry and heat embossed panel with an oval die at an angle. I attached this piece to the card base and placed the tree scene within the oval. I die cut several eyelet ovals and attached them over the original die cut oval.

To finish the card, I added the cardinal that I fussy cut, green and white pine needles, and Merry Christmas sentiment.

I also submitted this card for the January 2018 Christmas Challenge that is to create a Christmas card with the letter “C” represented.  My cardinal satisfies that part of the challenge.

Again, thanks so much for stopping by, and a special thanks for leaving a comment.

Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Collection

This is the third and final Christmas card I want to share.  It features the Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Collection designer paper.

As is with the other two cards, this too is a Z-fold card that is 6″ x 12″.  I scored the card at the 3″ and 6″ measurements and added the beautiful Heartfelt Creations designer paper.  I also added a cardinal with a green lacy mat to the card front.  I made the cardinal with Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal.

Enjoy!

Hello!  I have three last-minute Christmas cards I want to share with you!  This, and the next two posts, will be very brief as I just wanted to share the cards without details.

Here is the first one:

Guneaux Designs Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Cardinal

Have you seen the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly designer paper?  It is so gorgeous!  It is featured on this Guneaux Designs Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Cardinal card.

The Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection designer paper features cardinals, deer, snowflakes, poinsettias, wagon wheels, fence, holly, and much more.  If you want to get an early start on making Christmas cards for 2017, this beautiful paper is great to use and it won’t disappoint you!

To create this card, I cut a 6″ x 12″ piece of Stampin’ Up! (SU) Cherry Cobbler card stock and scored it at the 3″ and 6″ measurements to form my card base.  I used one of the 12″ x 12″ pieces of Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection designer paper and cut it into sections that fit onto the card base.

The second and third panel eventually will include a personal message for the recipient of the card.  The beautiful cardinal on the first panel is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal stamp set.  This cardinal goes perfectly with the Healtfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection Designer Paper as it features lots of cardinals.  I stamped the cardinal onto a circular piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock with SU Rose Red and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added some pine needles, holly, and crystal clear glitter.  I used the  Heartfelt Creations Festive Holiday Die to cut two SU Wild Wasabi lacy die cuts, which I glued together.  I attached the cardinal piece to this and then to the front panel of the card.  I also added crystal glitter onto the lacy die cuts.

I submitted this card to the Splitcoaststampers.com Color Challenge to use SU Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Garden Green colors on a card, and a Free For All Challenge to create a “Winter in July” card.

To provide you with an idea about the designs on the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection paper, the following are photos of it.

John 14:21

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Thinking Of You With A Grateful Heart

THINKING OF YOU WITH A GRATEFUL HEART

Do you have someone who you think of with a grateful heart?  Is it a family member?  I often think how very grateful I am for my son-in-law.  He is so good to me and looks out for me regularly.  If I have something in my home that has broken, he is right there to make repairs.  I am so grateful for him, and I want to share my feelings with a card!  My card share today is a “Thinking Of You With A Grateful Heart” greeting card that I will drop in the mail to him!

The card features Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal stamp set and matching dies. My inspiration for this card is this tee shirt on this Website.  The website was selected by Stef (SmilynStef) from Splitcoaststampers.com who hosted today’s Inspiration Challenge.

To create the card, I cut two 3-3/4″ x 5″ pieces of white card  stock.  Using the matching dies, I cut out the bird and branch with the first piece of card stock.  I ran that piece through the Big Shot to emboss it with the Stampin’ Up! Wood Grain Embossing Folder. I then laid this piece over the second piece of white card stock, and traced around the cut out with a pencil to provide an outline of the bird and branch which I would color.

After tracing, I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal Stamps to layer three blue inks on the head of the bird.  (BTW, it is no longer a cardinal – it’s a Blue Jay!)  I only wanted the head of the bird stamped because I would create a scene similar to the one on the tee shirt, my inspiration piece.

To create the scene, I used several Copic Sketch Markers in blue shades.  I added the mountains with shades of gray, and the trees in Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue Classic Ink.  I hand drew the flying birds on the Blue Jay as well as on the top panel.  After adhering the pieces together, I added some Nuvo Duck Egg Blue Crystal Drops across the top-left of the card.

My sentiment, “Thinking of You With A Grateful Heart”, is from the retired Stampin’ Up! Happy Scenes Stamp Set.  I stamped it with VersaMark and embossed it with WOW! White Puff Embossing Powder.  I used two sets of die cuts (ODBD Lavish Layers Dies, and Hero Arts Rectangle Infinity Dies) to cut out the sentiment and a mat for it.

Enjoy the card, and I would love to get your feedback!  Leave me some happy notes in the comment section!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

1 Corinthians 11:23 – 26 (NIV)

Apostle Paul was writing to the church of Corinth:  “For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you:  The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”

Hero Arts Cardinal

I am blessed to have another day, a day to share this beautiful card I made featuring Hero Arts Cardinal Stamp Set.

The very talented Mary (MaryR917) is the host today for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge, CC600. She asked the design team to pick a favorite challenge that they hosted between #501 and #599, and we can select their colors for this challenge. I selected the colors of Karen Barber’s Color Challenge, CC509. For that challenge, she selected SU Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky, and Old Olive.Hero Arts Cardinal

These are the steps I followed to made my card:

~Cut a circle from my card base and stamped on it multiple times using three-step stamps of a cardinal.
~Used one application of Cherry Cobbler for the first stamp, two for the second stamp, and multiple times for the third.
~Stamped the branch with Old Olive multiple times to make the branch darker.
~Stamped the pine needles with one application of Old Olive.
~Masked the cardinal and branch and sponged Soft Sky around them.
~Ran the front of the card base through my Big Shot using the SU Holly EF.
~Attached a piece of white card stock behind the card base front and adhered the cardinal piece back into the circle that I previously cut out.

Hero Arts Cardinal~Cut poinsettias from Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive card stock using the Cottage Cutz Poinsettia & Holly Die.
~Assembled and adhered the flowers together and added flower soft in the centers.
~Attached the flowers to the card base.
