Pretty Posies

Hello, crafters!  Thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs to enjoy my Pretty Posies card.

I created this card in honor of a “Featured Stamper” on, Diane (HappyinMarco).  Diane has a gorgeous and unique gallery, and it was difficult to choose one card to case.  However, as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew it was the one.

I love the blue colors, butterflies, and leaves on Diane’s card, and I added those elements to my card, but in a different manner.  My main panel is blueish-green and I created it by sponging and blending several Distress Oxide Inks.  Instead of die cut stems and leaves as are on Diane’s card, I embossed my main panel with a stems and leaves embossing folder.  I added two butterflies as she did.  However, mine are from a different die cut, assorted colors, and located differently on the card.  I added a paper flower to my card that I created with ODBD Pretty Posies Die Set.

Ink: Distress Oxide Inks
Accessories: ODBD Pretty Posies Dies, SU Butterfly Dies, CottageCutz Expressions Plus Hello, Sequins, AG Embossing Folder, Sequins, and Prills

Luke 14:1 – 3

One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched.  There in front of him was a man suffering from dropsy.  Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?”  But they remained silent.  So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him away.”

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
