I Put My Faith To You O’Lord

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!  I’m back today with a very special card. It is the start of the Holy Week and this is the perfect time to reflect.   Don’t get me wrong; this isn’t the only time to show our faith. I think everyday we open our eyes, we should start thanking the Lord for all the blessings that we have in our lives. I’ve always been religious in my own way. However, I am not going to go into all the details of what I do to show my faith.

Today’s card features a stamp set that is very new to me. I was searching for a stained glass stamp set because I have this design that I’ve had in my head for a card. I found the perfect stamp set through YouTube. This stamp set is called Layered Stained Glass by Maymay Made It.

I started out by stamping the image on Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I stamped the layers using Ballet Slippers, Minty Fresh and Fresh Lavender inks by Lawn Fawn with my Tim Holtz stamp platform.

I used a die from my stash to create the mantelpiece and also used a leaf punch to cut the greenery. To finish my design, I used my “Faith” die from Simon Says Stamp and also stamped the sentiment “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself”. Here’s the card:

I absolutely love this scripture!   Here’s a little close-up below!  Can you see the details on the mantelpiece?  I embossed it with my embossing folder to make it look like concrete.  I have visited a LOT of churches in Europe and it is spot on!

I wanted to add glossy accents to make it look like real glass so I’ll probably add it later on.  For now, here’s the card:

Blessed To Be Your Friend

Hello everyone! I am back to share with you a very special card that I made, dedicated to our Kat Scrappiness Design Team Coordinator, Deb Peterson Rauch.  I am showcasing the Bear and Bird stamp set and its coordinating dies, the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background stamp, Kat Scrappiness Double-stitched rectangle dies and the Blessed Scripty dies, plus other products available at the shop.

I will not have any step-by-step instructions or a process video for this card. It is very simple but I love how it turned out.

This card is dedicated to Deb. I am “blessed to be Deb’s friend”. Deb has a huge heart. When I got sick, a few weeks ago, Deb has been (and still is) such a great confidant to me! She was my constant support during those times when I feel like I would never get better. When I start panicking with the pains I had, I would constantly send Deb a message and ask her so many medical questions and she would immediately give me answers, advice, support and recommendations. It didn’t matter what she was doing that day, she would always send me a reply and make me feel “safe” and less paranoid. Both Deb and Kathleen understood that I had to take it easy and need time to heal.  Thank you, Kathleen Driggers. Thank you, Deb for all the things that you do, for being my friend, and a great DT Coordinator. This card is for you:

Angel Inspirational Card

I finally had the chance to sit down, turn on my music, light some candles and start creating a card that is just simply for a friend, and not design-team related.

I recently ordered these cute Angel stamp set by Sunny Studio and I couldn’t wait to play with them. I had this design idea in my head for quite sometime now and decided to create a see-through card.  Here’s a step-by-step instruction below. It seems like a lot of work but I promise you, it’s really easy!

  1. Cut the white card-base at 4 ¼ by 11 and score at 5 ½.
  2. Trim the front panel at 4 ½, leaving the front of the card with an inch.
  3. Cut an acetate sheet measuring to 4 ¼ by 5 ½
  4. Adhere the acetate sheet behind the 1-inch flap. This will create the window part of the card.
  5. Using the leftover card stock that I just trimmed from the front card-panel, I used my Clouds border die to cut 3 different clouds pieces to create my “clouds”.
  6. Using my sponge, I distressed the clouds with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac distressed inks. I wanted the card to have a unique pink and purple color.
  7. I then adhered the clouds on the front panel of the card. One cloud on top, and two at the bottom.
  8. I cut another white card stock measuring 4 1/8 by 5 3/8. Using my sponge again, I distressed the card stock with the same colors that I used for my clouds.
  9. I adhered this card stock on the inside of my card (I wanted to use the same colors that I used for my clouds for the inside of the card).
  10. Using my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the angels, cloud and lantern images on Neenah solar white card stock.
  11. I used my Copic markers to color the images.

  13. Using the coordinating dies for the angels, I die-cut the images with my big shot machine.
  14. I used my ATG tape runner to adhere the Angels on the front panel.
  15. I used my mini-glue dots to adhere the lantern on the Angels’ hands.
  16. Using my Ranger Multi-Medium Matte adhesive, I adhered the little purple star sequins by Kat Scrappiness to decorate my card further.
  17. I stamped the sentiment inside the card, using my Lawn Fawn Hippo Ink.

 

Here are the photos of the finished card. I inserted an LED tea light so that my friend can also use this to display in her craft room.
