I wanted to participate in Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge which sports a very cool layout.  I did not make the deadline but I so love the layout and wanted to post it anyway. 

I started out with the two stamped images and thought I might want to emboss them.  I found some textured embossing powder in my stash and found that it fit in nicely with the other elements I was using.  Each element was sponged with So Saffron, followed by a tiny bit of Purely Pomegranate then Creamy Caramel.  I nipped all of the panels with a cool corner punch I have – and it worked out nicely even with the beveled embossed edge that Nestabilities make.  I then cut two scalloped rectanges and used the SU Round Scallop Punch .  All the elements were mounted on top of my design paper and finished off with a wide piece of satin ribbon. 

Thanks so much for looking!

    wowwwwwwwwwwwww I like that emb. powder how neat is that!! very pretty card bec. bec.

I’m so glad to have a card to post today.  I’m still participating in the Divine Design Challenge, and this is one of my very favorite scriptures.

 I saved this stamp until I could think of a pretty way to display it.  Unlike many others in my stash, I have used this one many times, it is worn and stained, and I will use it many more times in the future.  Our stamp club this weekend worked with alcohol inks and my supplies were still out, so I used them on my backgrounds.  The picture doesn’t do it justice, the colors have such depth.  Here is a closer look:

Quite a few people on Splitcoaststampers particpate in the challenge.  The SCS Gallery for Bible Verse Challenge – BVC08 can be seen here.  Bless you today!

    That background is gorgeous! One of these days I’ll have to splurge on getting some alcohol inks.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I’ve had my alcohol inks out as a reminder to use them soon, and look at this wonderful inspiration that I’ve found tonight! This is surely stunning IRL!

    I forgot to leave my response yesterday but this is a pretty card. I am going to have to go to tim’s site and catch up on some techniques.

Just a small post to let you all know that I am celebrating today.  After having a backlog of more than 700 posts to read in my RSS Reader, I got caught up today!!  That might be the reason you have not seen me posting cards.   I also got the chance to do a little blog beautification – like adding a seach box and economizing some stuff on my sidebars.  I know, TMI…..time to stop running around in circles :96

…..I’ll be back with cards soon.
