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.

ODBD Americana Quilt Collection

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 

ODBD Grace’s Hope

Happy Monday!!  Hope everyone had a blessed weekend!  Today’s card share features two different  and new Our Daily Bread Designs (OBDB) products: 1)  ODBD Grace’s Hope Stamp Set (1715) and 2) ODBD Lavish Layers Dies.  Also featured is a retired Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set, the And Everything Nice.

ODBD Grace's Hope

Isn’t she so pretty?  I have had this stamp of the little girl in the rain since it came out in 2005; however, I had never used it until today!  Eleven years she was stuck inside her plastic container.  Shame, shame!!  LOL

I used the new ODBD Lavish Layers Dies to cut the two frames showing on the card. Isn’t the design of these dies gorgeous?   I love the new dies!  They are very intricate but cut so well.  The card’s sentiment “HOPE” is from the ODBD Grace’s Hope stamp set. If you’ve not tried Our Daily Bread Designs products, I strongly recommend them to you!

Let me share about the name of the stamp set, Grace’s Hope.  Grace Nywening is a sweet lady who is a former Design Team Coordinator and current DT member of Our Daily Bread Designs Company.   She is undergoing a very powerful chemotherapy treatment course for Breast Cancer.  ODBD decided to honor Grace by dedicating to her the Special Edition Anniversary stamp sets for 2016!  Grace’s Hope is one of the stamp sets.  If you believe in prayer, please add her to your prayer list.  Thank you!

Back to the card.  I am submittimg this card to Splitcoaststampers for it’s Clean and Simple Challenge, CAS371 – APRIL SHOWERS.  The challenge requirements are:  “You know the old saying…April showers bring May Flowers?  Well, today it’s all about those April Showers! The challenge is to use a watery image/element on your project.”  When I read the challenge, the little girl stamp immediately came to my mind.  FINALLY, I decided to use the stamp for my image on the card!

I hope you enjoy my little girl!!
