Botanical Butterfly, Hold on To Hope Mash Up Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to be sharing with you the card that I designed for this month's Church Card Ministry.  I used pieces of the Botanical Butterfly designer series paper and the Hold on To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross of Hope Framelits.  Here's a look at my card.

This is a great card design to use up scraps of designer series paper.  I say this because all the strips of different sizes and you just glue them down to a piece of whisper white or scrap cardstock that's 4 x 5 1/4.  Once they are all glued down you just trim off the excess and mat it on your chosen mat color.  
That goes on your card base mine is from a piece of whisper white thick cardstock; that I cut down to 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I then stamped the little butterfly from the Hold on to Hope stamp set and die cut it out with the matching framelits.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of whisper white and created the fish tail banner.  The sentiment came from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog.  

The cross was cut out of four different scraps of cardstock some of which I were left over stamped pieces that were mess ups.  I layered four crosses up before placing them on the starburst that I had punched.  I placed a little of the Saleabration Organdy ribbon in highland heather behind and around the cross.  You could totally change the sending prayers sentiment for a happy Easter and have a super cute and easy Easter card.

No Line Stampin' Blends Coloring featuring His Grace Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I created for my churches card ministry back in January.  This is the second card that I created for that month.  Each week we pick a sister church and send them a card letting them know that we are praying for them. Each person in the congregation signs the card.  The hardest part that we have is actually getting the card around the right way.
I used the His Grace Stamp Set, and did a little no Line coloring to create my card.  I love the simple subtle images in the His Grace Stamp Set.  This stamp set is a Easter set, but Has a few sentiments in it that make it a versatile set.  Here's a look at my card.

This is a super clean and simple card, and I love how the simple no line coloring turned out.  Well this is not really the way you do no line coloring but it is my super simple way of doing it and a super easy way of adding a little drop shadow to some of the images.  Each month I make sure when I am designing the cards I always have a little purple in it.  Purple is one of our church colors.  I have a really cute one for this month that I will share with you in another post later on this week.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out by stamping the largest floral image in soft sea foam ink and then the little single flower.  I then did a little coloring.  To get the super soft look I prefer to feather the ink starting with the darker color and then doing the same thing with the lighter.  

Thanks for dropping bye today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little card, and just remember that this card could go to anyone for any occasion.  You can find all the supplies I used in the shopping list below.
