Get Well Flip it Card

Poorly Chester Rubber Stamp by Little Miss Muffet makes a fun get well card.  I've used the Sizzix Circle Flip-it Card die for the base card and for the inside letters.  The patterned cardstock is from The Stamps of Life Celebrate Selection.  The image is colored with Copic Markers, and I've added some blue and white floss.

Hi there!  I'm  joining Deb Segler's Heavenly Touch in helping friends “SEEK HIM DAILY”.  I’m honored to post a card for you to enjoy.

My card is made with a stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s Sale-a-Bration going on now until March 31, 2015.  It is called Butterfly Basics.  I’ve also used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  For this card I made my own background using stamps in the set.  The inks I used are Palette Jardin Moss, Boudoir Blush, and Raw Sienna.  I just stamped them randomly over the card.  The base card is green cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Palette Noir ink and matted it in the green cardstock.  A green ribbon was placed under the sentiment, which is popped up with foam mounting tape.  Lastly, I added two butterfly die cuts, one cut from the green cardstock and one from a multicolor dotted cardstock.

I love the sentiment with this set.  It reminds me of some spiritual truths.  We all are sinners in depravity before God saves us and makes all things new.  2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”  Our lives are completely transformed by Christ, just like the caterpillar is transformed into a beautiful butterfly.  As we look at people in our lives who seem to be caterpillars who do not have spiritual life and vitality, we cannot know what God plans for them.  We must love them and share the good news of salvation with them.  Perhaps they too can be transformed into something beautiful by His love and grace.

Have a blessed day!  And thanks for visiting my blog.

Nature's Greeting Deer by Pickled Potpourri

A favorite image of mine is Nature's Greeting Deer by Pickled Potpourri.  It makes a great male card for a birthday or Father's Day or even just thinking of you.  I've cut out the image with a Spellbinders circle die and inked the background with a sponge.  I've used woodgrain patterned paper for the card background and added some burlap ribbon and a multi-colored brown ribbon.  It is a simple card but shows up the image well. 
Pickled Potpourri has lots of nice images.  Visit them and see which ones you like best.

Red Rubber Inspirational #204 Focused on Stamping Anything Goes

This week on Red Rubber Inspirationals, Lynda leads a challenge that is stamping focused, but the theme can be anything.  I'm joining the challenge with this sweet swan set called Swans Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs.  I've made an anniversary card.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs, and the heart frame die cut is Spellbinders Heart Squares.  I colored the image with Copic markers, using a cloud template and sponge to make the sky with Palette ink.  The background patterned cardstock is from my stash of remnants, and I added two jewels.

Shy Skunks by Pickled Potpourri

Here are two cards I made with this adorable digital image from Pickled Potpourri called Shy Skunks.  The first card is a flip it card by Spellbinders.

The inside sentiment is Sophisticated Sentiments by Red Rubber Designs, plus a computer generated saying, "You are so stinking cute!".  The patterned paper is from the Blooming Garden Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I've added jewels and a ribbon for embellishment.
The second card with Shy Skunks is below.  It has background paper embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that says Happy Birthday, and I cut out the image with Lacey Squares Nestablilites by Spellbinders. The sentiments is computer generated.
  Both card images are colored with Copic Markers.
