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!

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.

Patterned Paper: Elegant Snowflakes (Diane’s Daydream Designs – no longer in business)

Anything Goes with a Birthday card and Easter card

3 Comments

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.

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:

Fishing Birthday Card

Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper:

Sorry I’m behind in my posting! I did this one on Wednesday for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #172 – Anything Goes as long as it’s family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. They offer a free word art scripture that you can use if you want but you don’t have to. I used it on my card and paired it with Helpful Hearts Digital Image from Deedee’s Digis.

I made this card for a friend of mine that is going through some tough times. I wanted her to know I’m here for her. I also wanted her to know that God loves her and even in her toughest times she is still one of God’s disciples doing his work. She might not know it but the love she is showing during this time can be used by God. I wanted to remind her so she doesn’t get discouraged. Life is tough but just keep going with God along side of you and his love will prevail.

This card was designed around us…I like orange and she likes red. We are also not into floral prints so I went with stripes and polka dots. So this card is very personal and I think she will recognize that as soon as she sees it.  I was inspired by card sketch #115 at Feeling Sketchy.

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Helpful Hearts Digital Image @ Deedee’s Digis

Cardstock: Bazzill (Crabapple Dark, Bubblegum)

Patterned Paper: KI Memories (very very old…scrap piece!)

Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on Canon Inkjet Printer. Also paper pieced

Accent/Tools: Cutter bee scissors, pop dots

Techniques: paper pieced
