Where's Your Treasure
Topic: Collage

This card is much like yesterday's with the layout and method used. I started with a different color pallette and the scrapbook paper and illustration from the stamp catalog are obviously not the same. I also turned the top and bottom edges of the vellum under and adhered them to the back of the scrapbook paper panel before adhering to the card front.

Because there is no glue to hide, the flowers are just for show.

Field Lilies
Topic: Collage

I wanted the vellum text panel to be the focus of this card so I layered it directly over the printed scrapbook paper and the illustration of flowers from the stamp catalog. Actually, the image is two in one: the flower pot and the daffodils started out as separate items. They are colored with watercolor markers.

I mounted the vellum with mini-glue dots and then used rhinestones to cover them.

Perfect Gifts
Topic: Scrap Recovery

The stamp catalog yeilded up a range of seashells which I colored with pastel watercolor markers. In cruising through the pile of table scraps I loved how well the colors matched this plaid and created a collage of the shells across the bottom.

I added this to a beige folded card base and selected a clear scripture stickers.

Definition of Joy
Topic: Collage

The image on this card is a combination of three from the stamp catalog: the tulips, the wooden basket, and the garden gloves. All are colored with watercolor markers. I slit the layers of the basket so I could insert the stems of the flowers to make it look like they were cut from the garden.

The background is created with a blue folded card base, and two printed cardstocks - one of them diecut. I chose to round the corners at the bottom to echo that die-cut edge.

The definition panel is printed vellum on which I rounded two opposing corners. This was mounted with blue brads to match the gloves and the background paper.

Be Blessed
Topic: Stamping

This is another of the scripture stamps I made for my own use. I stamped it directly onto the background patterned paper and added the stamped Bible on a separate panel over the top.

The image is colored with watercolor pencils and blended with an aquabrush. A pink folded card base ties it all together.

Is This Card a Stinker?
Topic: Collage

I'm not sure I like this card at all! It seems too spotty, overdone, disconnected, cutesy, and lame.

If you agree - please tell me. I might tear it apart and try to do something else with the elements. Or it may just go in the trash!

We Will Serve
Topic: Stamping

My custom stamp is back. I wish that I had noticed my software 'correcting' the capitalization of Lord before I printed it on the plate or before I created the stamp with it. Now it will be forever thus.

I stamped the scenic and colored it with watercolor pencils and an aquabrush before using a round die to cut it out. The card colors were pulled from the illustration which is why the match so well.

I used gold peel-off border stickers to frame the focal panel.

Eyes Can't See It
Topic: 3D paperwork

Despite the flowers, this card could be used for a masculine card because of the colors and dark tones. The center panel is printed cardstock with a grid and tone-on-tone floral corner.

The folded card base was chosen to echo the leaves and I used a clear sticker with silver text.

K is for Kokopelli
Topic: Paper Embroidery

I already had set aside a card for H (houses) and skipped over I and J to stitch up this one for the alphabet challenge. Years ago someone shared this pattern with a group I was on. What a cheery little fellow.

I had pricked this out on printed cardstock and chose the light teal thread to match one of the flower colors. Another scrapbook paper creates the frame but the folded card base is the same teal as the thread.

Topic: 3D paperwork

Note to salf: don't stick the 3D image on the dotted paper and THEN try to round the corners. Check!

I started out with square corners but they just didn't feel right. I do like the way the flower escapes the bounds of its mounting. I gave it a cream card base to keep the look simple.

That's another clear text sticker, in case you hadn't figured it out.

G is for Good Luck
Topic: Paper Embroidery

In the continuing alphabet stitching challenge I created this card from a pattern I sold to CardMaker Kit-of-the-month. I chose a grided tone-on-tone cardstock.

I added a layer of scrapbook paper as a background. No text is needed since there is a greeting stitched in.

Happy Dance of Color
Topic: 3D paperwork

These sunflowers just called out for a cheery background so I used this orange with a Cuttlebug texture folder. The organza ribbon is tied through slits in the paper around the stems.

I used folds of the same ribbon to create 'photo corners' and added a clear text sticker at the bottom.

New Scripture
Topic: Stamping

This is another of the scripture stamps I made. I got a little heavy-handed in the upper left corner of the stamp. I rounded the corner of the tag which was cut from the same cardstock as the frame for the focal paper - both of which echo the color of the flowers.

I like that the background is a maze of intersecting lines which draw the eye to the floral.

Make Your Own
Topic: Supplies

I finally used the Teresa Collins Stampmaker that I got for Christmas. I decided that I didn't have enough stamps with scripture on them so I made three large packets of them. It allowed me to make about 15 stamps. Unfortunately, I made the stencils go too close to the edges of the packet on a few of them so I think I ended up with 12 useable ones. This is one of them:

I did them with differing fonts and a variety of layouts to give myself some design options. I think this is a good use of the materials as I really don't need any specialty stamps of little pictures, etc.

Name That Flower
Topic: 3D paperwork

I've used this flower before and, just like before, I have no idea what it is. But I like it!

I had a booklet of scriptures on vellum and decided to pull some of them out for use. This one got glue dots under the circle elements and was laid over the background paper (shimmery green print). Then the un-named flower was mounted to the background with bits of leaves and flowers allowed to drift into the text area.

I used a yellow folded card base to echo the color in the flowers.

Topic: 3D paperwork

Back to the formal side of things - accomplished by a simple layout, low contrast, and script text. I used white shimmer cardstock run through the d'vine swirls Cuttlebug folder as the background and allowed the light blue card base to show around the edges.

That clear sticker catches the light oddly so I will just point out that it is really silver text on a clear background.

Nothing Impossible
Topic: 3D paperwork

Today's card is much simpler, relying on a speckled scrapbook paper for a calm background. I rounded two opposing corners to soften up the frame and added no embellishments.

The clear sticker had enough visual weight to balance out the flowers.

Love the Lord
Topic: 3D paperwork

The background paper for this card lends a more playful element. By filling the whole background with stripes there is a good contrast to the curly edges in the flowers and leaves.

The color contrast is very striking, as well.

The text is, again, a clear sticker.

The Day the Lord Made
Topic: 3D paperwork

For this card I chose to let the 3D image hang over the borders of the focal paper a bit. I like how it makes it a little bit more casual feeling than it would be if everything were constrained.

This card also uses a clear sticker but in this case it is small gold print.

Scripture Sticker
Topic: 3D paperwork

I spent a block of time punching out and assembling 3D elements from die-cut sheets one day. Then I spent another big block of time matching focal papers to each image. A third block of time was devoted to selecting base cards and then I spent a final session selecting text and embellishments. All that prep work so I could 'sit cown and whip out 20 cards' - yeah right!

Most of the cards used table scraps and this one features a crackle print scrapbook paper. I think this is the last little scrap of this and I am going to miss it.

I used a clear sticker for the text on this one.
