Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings

Hello, and welcome to Guneaux Designs!  Today’s theme for the Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was the “Luck of the Irish”.  I submitted this Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card for the challenge.

To make the Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card, I used a heart-shaped die to create a shamrock on a piece of white card stock. Using VersaMark Ink and Gold Embossing Powder, I embossed around the shamrock and added a gold-embossed stem. I stamped greenery on the bottom of the card stock with a Lovely Notes stamp and attached an Irish-themed picture behind the shamrock.

I selected a scrap piece of SU Crushed Curry card stock, cut out a panel with an ODBD die, embossed it with an embossing folder, and attached it as a mat behind the white card stock. I created my sentiment, cut it out with a Sizzix die, and attached it to the card front. I added sequins and attached the front panels to the Gumball Green card base.  That is “clean and simple” to me.

Thanks for stopping by to view Guneaux Designs Irish Blessings card!  Until the next time,

 HEBREWS 4:14-16

“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

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!!
