Guneaux Designs Blooming Garden


Hello and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  I hope your New Year has started off with love, kindness, and everything good!  Today, my friends, my card share, Guneaux Designs Blooming Garden Greeting Card, features the Penny Black Blooming Garden Stamp Set.  This stamp set is new to me, and I expect it will be used frequently.

I am not sure of the type of flower the image is, but I think it is beautiful.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neenah Solar White Card Stock that I cut using Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Using various Copic Sketch Markers, I colored the floral image in shades of light and dark pink and green.  I used a Dapper Denim Stampin’ Up! (SU) Marker to draw a frame for the floral image. The sentiment, from ODBD Faith Card Sentiments, is stamped in the SU Dapper Denim color.  This photo provides a closeup of the flowers.
After I finished with the sentiment and floral image, I attached the piece to a die cut piece of SU Dapper Denim Card Stock that I cut using the ODBD Lavish Layers Dies.  I used the Be Creative Sookwang Double-Sided Tape to adhere this piece of card stock. Have you ever used this double-sided tape?  It is the strongest double-sided tape that I have come across, and it comes in several widths.  If you have not used it, give it a try; I think you will be impressed!

I am submitting this card to the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for this week. The color combination for the challenge is Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and Dapper Denim. I think the combination is a great one!  If you have not entered the Splitcoaststampers Challenges, I encourage you to give it a try.  It is lots of fun!

Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by!

Shining as Stars:  “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life – in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”  Philippians 2:14-16

ODBD Americana Quilt Collection

Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) new release for the month of April includes some gorgeous products that focus around quilting.  One set of designer papers released is the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection, which I used to create this card.

I love the beautiful colors of this designer paper.  I chose a floral pattern from the collection for the main focus on my card.  You can see the paper designs below.

I submitted this card to a Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge, SC587, as shown below. The colors in the sketch are there just for clarity, not to be matched.

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.’  By this he meant the Spirit…”  John 7:37-39
