Hello, and welcome back, or welcome if this is your first time to this site. Do you remember the old Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Serene Silhouettes? I call the stamp set “old” because it is more than five years old. I created my Serene Silhouettes card for a Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge (CAS) to create a project that includes birds. Because the card needed to be CAS, I searched for a simple image of a bird or birds, and this set is the one I found in my stash of older stamps.
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this wold and the ruler of the kingdom of the air [Satan], the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.”
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.
“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.”
Hero Arts Monthly Kit Star Stamp
Happy Saturday!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you live in the United States! Thanksgiving is a lovely time of the year to stop regular activities and give thanks for our blessings. I had a wonderful time with my family that I love so much!
I took time today to create a card for an Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Every Saturday the hostess for the challenge selects a website from which to draw inspiration and create a paper project. The site selected for today is The Company Store. I selected THIS beautiful Star Wreath Holder as my inspiration piece. Because of the upcoming holiday, Christmas, I immediately thought of the Star of Bethlehem when I saw this item. My next thought was the star stamp within the Hero Arts Monthly Kit for November 2017. Therefore, that star stamp image is the focal point of my card.
Matthew 2:1 & 2
“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”
