Sending Prayers

Yes!! That is a stamped sentiment!! I love seeing all the stamped cards but it seriously is hard for me so I would much rather run it through my printer! But I had bought these stamps awhile back and thought it worked perfectly with this sketch and butterfly.
Simple card but sometimes simple works.

Vibrant Friend Birthday

Vibrant Funny Friend

I had a birthday order that was Christian theme, likes yellow and bright colors. So I found a Christian saying that the lady liked and then set out to make the card. I was struggling so I went to My Princess-peaces’ gallery as she is the “lift” category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I lifted this card.

Since there is more bling on this card then I usually use I’m going to enter this one into the Product category – bling, shine, etc. I lifted another one of her cards that I will enter into that category.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (cinder, lemonade)
Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye (Kate & Co -Cambridge Court)

Triple Matte Technique

Manger Scene

I was so excited to see The Paper Studio come out with a Christian Christmas Paper pack. Since I’m not a traditional stamper I’m always on the lookout for Christian Christmas stickers or papers. I wasn’t sure if I could use this piece of the pack because of how big the scene was but I was able to capture enough in a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. I then used the triple matte technique…instead of stamping the design I used paper with a design on it. I then cut out the star from the original big piece and place it 3d on here.

CHALLENGES:
1) August Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique – triple matte technique
2) Christmas in August @ Scrapbook.com – make a Christmas card or layout.
3) ABC Christmas Challenge – Q – Q for a quick layout.
4) Christmas Card Challenge Week 38 – Anything Goes
5) Merry Monday Christmas in Summer Challenge – pick an old challenge. I picked challenge #206 – Nativity Scene.
6) Crimbo Crackers Christmas Challenge #114 – Anything Goes
7) Jingle Belles – about MUSIC … you might incorporate sheet music, musical instruments, music-themed stamps … or even make a card inspired by your favorite Christmas Carol. Just make sure you let us know what your MUSICAL elements are. Mine is based off the song “Away in a manger”

3 Wise Men and sketch

Wise Men

Dec 1st Deedee’s Digis sponsored Feeling Sketchy Challenge #134 which was this sketch:

FeelingSketchy134

I wanted to make a sample and play along so I started looking through Deedee’s Digis Christmas images because I need one more religious card for this year. When I saw the Wise Men Digital Image I thought it could work with this sketch. In my mind the words would take the place of the other stars. I had just bought a new size of envelope for money cards but thought the size would work for this too…the size of the card is 3 1/2 x 7 1/4.  I never got the card done in time for the challenge but I did get it done in time for some orders I had! I was very thankful because the 3rd customer saw an error I had in my scripture so I only had to fix 5 cards…very thankful!

CHALLENGES:

  1. Dec Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Product Category – digital image

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Wise Men @ Deedee’s Digis (closing shop on 12/31/15)

Our true gift at Christmas time

Jesus is Gift - red

Jesus is Gift - Blue

I needed two more religious cards this season and had an ideal to use 3 wise men image for one but I wasn’t sure on the 2nd one. So I went looking through my digital stamps and came across this one by Diane’s Daydream Design (store closed in 2014). Then I remembered an awesome sketch posted in the December Card Sketch challenge on scrapbook.com. Then I remembered the color combo from last month on the Nov Card Challenge that I didn’t get to so I decided to use it on this card. So with those 3 elements in mind I went to work and this is what I came up with!! A little modern but the focus is still on Jesus…our true gift at Christmas. I made a red background version and then also made a teal background version.

The paper used for the circles is actually a digital paper (also discontinued at Diane’s Daydream Designs) I printed on Bazzill white. Then I just used circle punches and went to town. So I will also enter into the Dec Card Challenge – product category – use something digital.

Anything Goes with a Birthday card and Easter card

Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge this week is Anything Goes. So I first made the birthday card for a friends brother in-law and decided it fit my father-in-law so I made him one too!

Great Outdoors Birthday

Then I decided to make a card for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge so I will share it at Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge also.

TheLordLiveth

There is free Word Art of this scripture on the blog but it didn’t fit the space I had since it was more of horizontal sentiment. So I tried to mimic what she did and made it vertical. When I saw this scripture it made me think of this digital image by Deedee’s Digis so that is why I went with it.

CHALLENGES:
1) Word Art Wednesday – uplifting project

2) Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #221 – Anything Goes

3) 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #240 – Easter

4) April Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites – used a sketch from last month (Mojo Monday Sketch #361)

SUPPLIES:

Stitchy Cross

I made this for my friend I met on-line several years ago. Her 18 yr old son was diagnosed last month, Dec 2014, with bone cancer. He has started his 6 month chemo treatments. I made him a card but I also wanted to make her a card to encourage her as she goes through this battle with him. When praying and asking God what she needed to hear he advised me to send this verse. So I paired it with a stitched cross from Deedee’s Digis. The design inspiration for this card came from the Deconstructed Sketch # 183.

CHALLENGES:

1) Suzy Bee’s Bloomin’ Challenge #65 – Stitching – faux or real. I went with the stitching in the design of the cross.

2) Feb Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus – Stitching

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Stitchy Crosses @ Deedee’s Digis

Cardstock: Bazzill

Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on Canon Inkjet Printer

Accents/Tools: Cricut Cuttlebug (Anna Griffin – Rosa) embossing folder, pop dots, Fiskar’s Fuse
