Crafters of Faith

Kelly is our hostess this month for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers.  She chose the scripture this month which is Psalm 33:12 (KJV) Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.  I thought this was the perfect scripture for the month of July.

Kelly challenges us to remember the 4th of July as we make our card and take a moment to reflect what freedom means for all of us and to celebrate spiritually as well.  She wanted us to create a card/project with a flag somewhere on it.

I had alot of fun making this card.  I decided to use the stamp set "Red, White & Boom" from The Project Bin.   I just stamped the fireworks in red and blue ink for the background and stamped the sentiment and the flag.  I used white embossing powder for the stars on a small square of navy card stock.  I added a few star gems for bling.

Thanks Kelly for a great challenge.

PIP Challenge #2027

Time again for another challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  This will be challenge #2027 and even though we don't have a sponsor this week, Pam has generously decided to give the winner of this challenge a $10 gift card to Unity Stamp Company.  Did you know that Unity actually has digital stamps to purchase?  I love digital stamps because of the whole storage issue and  how you can size them any way you want.
For my card today I decided to use the beautiful digital stamp called "In This together".  I printed off the image and colored it with some of my purple copic markers.  There are different sentiments and different views of this flower that you can print off.  I felt like this sentiment was perfect for what is going on in this world and that we all need to tell the individuals in our lives how special they are.

I hope to see your creations over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge this week.  Who wouldn't want to win a $10 gift certificate to Unity Stamp Company?

The Project Bin

Happy July!  So fun that my project landed on the first day of July as a design team member for The Project Bin.
Since the 4th of July is right around the corner I thought I would make a fun patriotic card.  I used the stamp set "Red, White & Boom" from The Project Bin for my card today.  I took a piece of tan paper and stamped the fireworks in red & blue on the sheet.  I added the sentiment in the center along with a few star gems.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July.  I know alot of towns are cancelling their fireworks displays which is sad because I really enjoy them.  Be safe and have fun.

Fun in the Sun

The 28th of the month sure rolled around quickly but this means I am posting my card for our Creating from our Stash group on Splitcoaststampers.  Kari was our hostess this month and she decided our challenge was "Life's a Beach".
I had so much fun making this card for the challenge today.  I started my card with a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of white Neenah Classic Crest paper.  I then stenciled some clouds at the top of the card using the MFT cloud stencil.  I then taped across the middle of the card and sponged a darker blue.  The bottom of the card is a piece of torn SU Crumb cake paper.  I then added the images from the Photoplay  Hello Summer set that I had colored with my copic markers.  The sun is by Lil Inker designs.

PIP Challenge #2025

Today starts a fun challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.  This week is being sponsored by Di's Digital Stamps.
For my card today I am using the digital stamp called "Micealangelo".  I had so much fun coloring this image with my copic markers.  I love all the Mice images they have at Di's Digital Stamps.  So adorable.  I had a hard time deciding which one to purchase.  I chose to do a simple layout so the image would really pop.  This image reminds me of watching the artists outside in our local arboretum where they put up their easels and paint.  It is so fun and inspiring to watch.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the store at Di's Digital stamps.  

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Mystery Image Swap

Today is Round 50 for our Unidentified swap on Splitcoaststampers.  Darlene was our host this month.
Darlene chose our image this month and it is from "Bouquets of Wishes" by Hero Arts.  Such a sweet simple image but makes a wonderful card to use on many occasions.  

I colored the image with my copic markers and then used a stacking die to cut out the image.  

Thanks for stopping by and thanks also to Darlene for a great challenge this month.

The Project Bin

For my card today for The Project Bin I decided to pull out my Patriotic stamps and make a 4th of July card. 
The stamp set I used from The Project Bin is "Red, White & Boom".  It has all the perfect sayings if you were looking to make a nice patriotic card.  I used some scrap papers I had around the house and I used a star embossing paper on the red rectangle.  I then used a star die cut on gold paper to give it the extra little pop.
