Day 13 – 30 Days of Giving

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders -
Saving the Written Word

Welcome to my 30 Days of Giving – every day during the month of July I’m giving away a handmade card – you can read all the specifics HERE.  You can check to see if you’ve won a card by looking under the Features menu item and selecting Giveaway Winners.

Lol, where did the weekend go?  Yikes!   I’ll have new cards to show this week as I’m busily crafting.  In the mean time I hope you’ll enjoy one that is you’ve seen before but it’s new to many of you.  It’s a format that I would make again and the original post is HERE.

For today’s comment –  you get a break from the questions.  What’s on your mind?

The card that’s being given away today is shown above.  Just a note – this is a card that has been shown before and there is a possibility that some of the supplies that were used are currently discontinued, no doubt there will be something you can substitute – have a look through my galleries for alternative ideas.  Many things can still be found on the open market, just google and you’ll find that many retailers are still selling.


Stamps: JustRite Papercrafts –  True Friends Vintage Labels Four
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb Smooth
Ink:  Amuse Latte, Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders Gold Elements, Spellbinders Medallion One, Spellbinders Adorning Squares, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Maya Roads Trinket Pin

post-header-bottomI have to admit, I pulled out Christmas paper and am working with some Christmas Dies this week.  I love the feeling I get when I have the first Christmas card done.  It’s just like oiling the holiday part of my creativity.  Don’t be surprised if you see Christmas soon :-)

  • lorrayne ingramJuly 13, 2015 - 7:21 am

    Today..juggling balls in the air, thinking on details, taking a class this morning as mortgages and closings will be completely different in a few months. Praying for my friend and her daughter with cancer. Loving your card which is beautiful against a world that can be tough. Wanting to somehow have time to create cards like these to send love to them during tough times, or just to say you are loved. To point them to the One who holds the answers to life.ReplyCancel

  • Noelene apapJuly 13, 2015 - 7:23 am

    Hi Becca,
    Just love how you use the ribbons & pins in your cards, gives them such an elegant touch.
    Well its late here in Australia, & I am getting ready for bed, after a day of clearing out all my book keeping for a free day tomorrow of crafting :)
    Good morning to you & good night from Australia xReplyCancel

  • Marion TurnerJuly 13, 2015 - 7:27 am

    Hi Becca
    Lovely Card as always.
    I need to find a lovely Get Well verse for a neighbour’s card that’s what is on my mind at the moment.
    Love Marion.ReplyCancel

  • BunnyJuly 13, 2015 - 7:33 am

    Yeah! I can finally comment on your card without forgetting because I start right in with an answer to the question. So, today, it doesn’t matter if we’ve seen the cards or not, they are always so beautiful.The lacy look of the die cuts, the ribbon, the pearls and the sentiments are always so beautiful. This card is something you know would bring maybe a smile or relief to someone. It’s something they can hold in their hands and look at over and over again. Tuck it away and bring it out again. A keepsake to know that they were being thought of.

    What’s on my mind today? The heat. Ugh! Living in North East Florida the heat index was 110 and above this weekend since Friday. It’s so difficult to anything outside. Especially with the humidity. Even at night when the weather cools to 80 degrees…………ha ha. Please………..we need our 3 days of fall. We’ve a long way to go.ReplyCancel

  • Judy InukaiJuly 13, 2015 - 7:41 am

    Another wonderful card with a gorgeous bow. Love those fancy corner pieces. I just went to a Stamp Show yesterday and got carried away. One of the dies I bought was your Arched Elegance Pocket. I would love to see more of what you’re doing with it. I also got the sweet little church die and hope you’ll be doing something with that now that you’re getting into Christmas mode. I am really enjoying all your beautiful cards and see how you’re going to challenge us to respond to your question or comment of the day. Thanks for all you do for the crafting world.ReplyCancel

    Today is the day I need this sentiment Becca!!! I am keeping busy so trying not to think too much. Ironing is on the “to do” list so the music will be on and I’ll be singing away. This is a beautiful card and I just love the colour palette today. Hugs Christine xxReplyCancel

  • Tamara van TongerenJuly 13, 2015 - 7:56 am

  • DeborahJuly 13, 2015 - 7:57 am

    Beautiful card! Now that you mentioned Christmas, my mind is busy thinking up a design for my annual Christmas card, so that’s what is on my mind! I make 50-60 of an identical design each year and I have to start early so it doesn’t become tedious.ReplyCancel

    O yeah I almost forgot… and waiting on my new Spellbinders dies so i can make cards like you do. ahum hope to haha. My thirth time i buy spellbinders dies.ReplyCancel

  • Annelie S.July 13, 2015 - 7:59 am

    Beautiful card as always, Becca. Last night we had a windstorm come through and we have one old tree down in our backyard and part of our newer maple tree ripped down as well. My husband wants to go out with his new toy, a chainsaw, and take care of the problem himself. He is in his 70’s and has never done this kind of thing before. I’m trying to talk him out of it. Wish me luck!ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.July 13, 2015 - 8:00 am

    I just love this card! It is one of my favorites of yours. Beautiful! What is on my mind? Prayerful thoughts. My part-time job is teambuilding with groups of all ages. Today we have a group of kids that are from local area shelters coming together to build confidence and learn to find their voice. They have many many issues and it makes me feel very blessed to have had the life I do. I pray that we can touch their life in someway even if it’s a tiny way. Off I go! :-)ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJuly 13, 2015 - 8:15 am

    Truly stunning card, as always. On my mind is getting started on a ‘birthday book’ for my brother-in-law who will be 50 in September. I’m about to get everything out to at least choose lots of photos from the pile of what seems zillions from birth to present day!

  • Debbie BauderJuly 13, 2015 - 8:18 am

    Nothing earth shattering is going on, just normal life. I keep thinking how much I enjoyed being in the sun when I was younger & now can’t tolerate the heat. I live in north central Florida and spring seemed to skip us this year. We just went from winter to summer. Now I can’t wait for fall to get here. Who wants to go out in this heat?ReplyCancel

  • LoisJuly 13, 2015 - 8:44 am

    On my mind: to mention the book “Our Declaration” by Danielle Allen about the excellence of the writing of the book as well as the democratic process which defined the wording of our Declaration of Independence. Worth a read. Other than that, today is a good day for weeding the flower gardens. Hope you have a fun day and can accomplish one item on your “to do” list.ReplyCancel

  • Caroline PollardJuly 13, 2015 - 8:47 am

    Beautiful Card as always Becca! I just am looking forward to holidays and not having to do the routine, but do things I love to do.ReplyCancel

  • Rai LynnJuly 13, 2015 - 8:48 am

    Having issues with my back, so sitting/being creative is difficult, almost impossible. Looking at your work is inspiring. When my back is fixed, I will be out of control — in a good way, of course. Until then, I can pretend I’m working on cards by viewing yours and dreaming.ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingJuly 13, 2015 - 8:48 am

    Oh, this card is beautiful, and so perfect (and had me googling for supplies before I ever got to commenting!).

    I have been laid up for about 10 days now…the start to a way different summer than I “planned” on. We all know how that goes! I broke my ankle and my leg and need surgery, which will happen in a few days now. I have been humbled by all the people who are praying for me, sending good wishes etc. and rather than get caught up in hours of FB…which can sneak up on one really quickly! …I have been trying to pray for people who are way worse off than I and send encouraging notes. I do have my husband check those notes over, because pain meds can do funny things to one’s brain processes….

    So that is what has been in my mind and heart…Thursday it will be back to ground zero in many ways to start healing again, and trying to focus anywhere but on myself. Thanks again for another day of opportunity to focus on blessings and gratitude…it really does make a difference in how the day goes!


  • Faulba DorsettJuly 13, 2015 - 8:50 am

    This is a beautiful card! (But then all of your cards are beautiful.) My best friend just lost her husband very unexpectedly and I would love to be able to give her this card.ReplyCancel

    Simply beautiful! You are such an inspiration. I love checking out your site as it gives me a break from the stress of our upcoming move.ReplyCancel

  • KarolHallJuly 13, 2015 - 9:02 am

    After a long weekend of doing yard work all I have on my mind today is resting and cleaning my craft room. I have promised that room for a week I would pay attention to it and today is the day. And I will not and I replete not doing any crafting
    Thanks Becca for your beautiful creations.ReplyCancel

  • Carol WJuly 13, 2015 - 9:02 am

    I absolutely love this card the color combination is beautiful. You do such a wonderful job on your cards..This one is over the top awesome.ReplyCancel

  • Colleen HowellJuly 13, 2015 - 9:05 am

    Yes I remember this one, I love it. You do such a great job at making cards. Well I have a lot on my mind these days. But I am really trying to decide if I want to make cards, mixed media, and other crafts and start selling them on Etsy, not to just make money but I love to do all of this stuff and sometimes I have no one I can give them to because they may not need it or like that style. Just so I can create and not have it all stacked up in my house and little extra money would be nice to I could buy more stamps, dies, tools etc… I know it would not make a lot of money but would be nice any way. I hope to see a Christmas card soon, I love Christmas and when you hand make cards for everyone it is a good idea to start early!ReplyCancel

  • Mary EstherJuly 13, 2015 - 9:05 am

    Loved ones are on my mind today…some hurting physically, some hurting emotionally. I am praying for them as they walk through “deep waters.”

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter to win your beautiful and meaningful card.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy BJuly 13, 2015 - 9:10 am

    Beautiful card. Think I might try to make one of these today. I am headed out to walk a mile with my sweet dog, stop at Tropical Smoothie for my morning drink and then spend the day in my craft room. Yesterday I polished and cleaned all of the counter tops and today it is time to clean the wood cabinets. It will look so good when I am done.ReplyCancel

  • Anita BraddockJuly 13, 2015 - 9:10 am

  • SuzzieQJuly 13, 2015 - 9:12 am

    Beautiful card. I adore this Spellbinders Gold Element One die. The layering you did with this die, over and under, is interesting. I missed this card the first time, so I when back to the listing and enjoyed your loving mama observation of your college aged son and the growth you admired and saw in him. You did good mama!ReplyCancel

  • Pat BargerJuly 13, 2015 - 9:16 am

    Hi Becca……I do have a question for you. What got you started into cardmaking? Do you do any scrapbooking? Whoops, I guess that’s two questions! LOVE your card today… very gorgeous!!!!!!
    Hugs, PatReplyCancel

  • Leslie ScholesJuly 13, 2015 - 9:17 am

    Oh gosh another beautiful card! I happen to have all the dies you used & I can make a very similar pin. I have some Mary Arts silk ribbon but cannot for the life of me duplicate your bows. My daughter & son-in-law even made me a “Becca Bow Maker” and I can’t do it. Would you consider teaching a bow class?? I’ll come to you! Or you could come to Southern California??
    I too have started making my Christmas cards…ReplyCancel

  • Anne (UK)July 13, 2015 - 10:05 am

    Becca, I am so glad that I visited your blog as the words on this card match exactly what I am doing today. My schoolfriend, since the age of 5, with whom we have shared many family holidays, is on life support in Intensive Care after a ruptured brain aneurysm this weekend. I am sorry that I did not have anything uplifting to say, but as you may well imagine, everything else has been crowded out whilst we wait for news.

  • RosieJuly 13, 2015 - 10:05 am

    Another gorgeous card and most of all I love the text in the script. Working on cleaning out closets – have to do it when I am in the mood so I get rid of stuff. 8 of us crafting friends are going out for two b’days tomorrow nite so need to finish the envies for the cards.ReplyCancel

  • Mary MacJuly 13, 2015 - 10:13 am

    Hi Becca, Yet another elegant, uplifting card which is sure be treasured.
    The plight of the unfortunate Greek people saddens me so much. I have no connection with the country or the people but my (Irish) heart goes out to them. My own little country is in recovery but it is too late for many, many people. Why can’t governments govern?ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJuly 13, 2015 - 10:36 am

    You have such a way with that latte color, Becca. It always looks so elegant when you use it. I love this layout! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

    I’m thinking today about saving the written word. The greatest written word is the Word of God, which has been saved over millennia to enrich all of us. Clearly nothing we write will be of that magnitude, but I do love to include a verse or two in my correspondence.ReplyCancel

  • Jan CastleJuly 13, 2015 - 10:56 am

    Speaking of Christmas…I was asked yesterday to do a make and take for our church ladies – Christmas in July to benefit our Vets – have designed two cards for the ladies to choose from that I think will work nicely for these non-crafters. Seems strange to be thinking about Christmas and cold weather in the middle of July!!!

  • Bonnie DJuly 13, 2015 - 11:02 am

    Greetings Becca!
    I’m sad today because my daughter is going back to Ohio today. She is moving up here to Michigan, but she is not all here yet!! She’ll be here for good soon tho and I can’t wait!! Have a blessed day.

  • ANN ROBBINSJuly 13, 2015 - 11:05 am

    Dear Becca,
    Today’s card is a favorite of mine. I just love that mocha bow, omg, it is so georgous!! And also the corners (which I believe is one of your dies and I have it) really make this a fantastic card.
    What’s on my mind? I am running for Mayor of our small town in central Florida; so that is the most pressing issue at this time. Election is Aug. 25th Primary and then we will see what happens with 4 candidates. Having a ball going around town talking to everyone!! Wish me luck!
    Thank you for sharing this card which I hope will be picked for me!!

  • Linda DaleJuly 13, 2015 - 11:05 am

    Hi Becca, Whats on my mind is prayer I particulary love this card just because it strikes a chord in my heart and soul. I am praying
    how to get well and stay well. I just can’t seem to stay well the past two years. Just getting over walking pneumonia. I have tried everything my doctor has told me to do. Some think it is grief of loosing my husband 2 1/2 yrs ago. We had a blessed 45 yrs married. Grief takes time to learn to cope and move forward. I know prayer works so whatever it is praying is a good thing because God hears and knows all. I will be praying for you too.
    Thanks for the chance to win one of your beautiful cards.
    Blessing, LindaReplyCancel

  • Janet SaievaJuly 13, 2015 - 11:14 am

    I made this card from your past post and I just love it. I am so happy you are bringing back the cards that you made in the past. I hope you continue to do it in the future. Just as I opened your page I was thinking, after the 6th phone call, how can I get rid of the pesky, annoying advertisement calls. Found out even if you hang up on the recording, the message still plays and you are not disconnected until it’s done. Hope I never have to make an emergency phone call while these are still playing. I guess I am lucky if this is the only thing on my mind for the moment.ReplyCancel

    Love your card, especially the beautiful corner dies! On my mind right now is get back working on transferring all my stamps on wooden blocks onto EZ Mount Foam. It’s quite a timely process, but I know that it will be worth it in the end.ReplyCancel

    Becca I would love to know if you are a perfectionist in any way, and if so, how do you overcome it? It seems like a lot of crafter’s are and this stops them from even trying. Though your cards are so beautiful, I can’t really imagine that being an issue for you…love EVERYTHING you make!!!ReplyCancel

    Lots on my mind but first I want to tell you that this card is another total winner. And I for one would LOVE to see Christmas! ;o)

    Spent the weekend with son and partner and trying to decide if we want to move. We sold our condo this year and made a major move to a small town. We are going forward as renters and just can’t decide on where we want to live or should we just try to settle where we are….so many questions and decisions.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    You said it, the weeks fly by so fast!

    Christmas cards, huh? Gosh, I wish I didn’t have so many projects to catch up on. It’s always a mad dash to Christmas and I vow every year to start earlier. Thoughts of Christmas really inspire creativity, don’t you think? I always have way more ideas than I can act on. I’ll bet ideas start to percolate at the mere mention of Christmas cards…

    Thank you, Becca!

    This is a gorgeous card, and I completely agree that it is a style that deserves to be revisited! What’s on my mind? I am thinking of the new students I will greet in a few short weeks and how to meet their needs with creativity and compassion. At the same time, I have mixed feelings about my son heading off for his freshman year in college. Guess I could use a praying-for-you card in my mailbox.ReplyCancel

We live about 5 hours from our son and his family and would like to get closer also need to downsize. Lots of work. We live in a remote area so have not had much action yet. If we do move it will be a big change.ReplyCancel

    I was just thinking how nice it is of you to share all these cards and how I need to send a card out to someone who it not expecting it. This card is perfect because I just told a friend I would be praying for her this week for her treatment. Just remember God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

  • Valerie MartinJuly 13, 2015 - 4:14 pm

    Hi Becca!

    I remember when you 1st showed this card! I loved it so much that I had to get the dies to give my hand a try at scrap-lifting.

    What is on my mind today? Hmmm…how burdened my heart is.
    -frustration in our government

    -angry/upset over EXTREMELY high costs of health insurance which has forced me back to work after 19+ yrs of being just a mommy.

    -disappointed in myself for not being able to “get it all done” each day ie. laundry, dishes grocery shopping etc.

    -burdened for my 3 daughters (esp. my 17yr old) I wish we were closer and not butting heads all the time.

    -burdened for my husband who works 16-18 hours a day and his health has me worried. Doctors have no answers despite 2 years of referrals and specialists.

    I could really go on and on but I really need to be vigilant in praying continuously and giving it over to God.

  • Victoria LunaJuly 13, 2015 - 4:20 pm

    I have to be honest with you. The first thing that got into my mind when I saw this card was: “I WANT THAT CARD FOR ME”. But what it is always on my mind and my heart is gratitude. God is merciful and loving. I thank him everyday for my life and my children’s life. I thank him because he is giving me another chance at life. Another chance to appreciate what is really important in life.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card! I’m wondering if I should try these intricate dies with new plates that are actually flat and maybe a small shim.

God bless you Becca.ReplyCancel

    2. How I can possibly use all the dies, SVGs, Cricut cartridges/CDS files, stamps and other goodies that I own as I contemplate yet another purchase! I have been on a die diet of late, but I can feel myself weakening. (Sipping water isn’t helping!)
    3. Not on my mind but should be: organizing my craft space!ReplyCancel

    I am new to your site. I just found you a couple of weeks ago and pinned several of your cards. They are absolutely beautiful. You have a real gift. I am fairly new to card making and your cards have inspired me to try and make such lovely creations.
    I have to say I have been one of those people who came into making cards kicking and screaming, and asking why???, because I have never been a big crafter.
    But I just kept feeling like I needed to do this.
    Just tonight I listened to your reasons for making cards.
    Thank you, Thank you. You made me realize, it is the “giving” that is the importance of doing this. It really is a beautiful way to brighten someones life.

I have worked hard this year and lost 50 lbs daily through the help of Overeaters Anonymous. I recently dropped my sponsor and stopped attending meetings.

  • Norah McPheeJuly 14, 2015 - 3:46 am

    Good morning Becca,
    I love it when you make this type of card that you do as it is just so elegant and chic looking. When i look at the shops and their cards that are all “lazer” cut i think that the designers must have looked at your cards first and copied the design element that you use to make theirs. The first i seen a filigree card that was totally made only out of that was when i came across your site. You just seem to find out a new way of using them and making things of beauty out off. I can’t say that it is only cards you make out of your wonderful imagination and dies as it is not, you make the most wonderful gifts out of them as well.
    Becca, you are lagging behind in the Christmas stakes as across here in the UK Christmas making has now started in June and i am left wondering when it will be that the start on boxing day to start selling and making for the next years Christmas. I wish the retailers would let us enjoy each season as it comes around and not 6-8 months before it starts. Last year we had Easter eggs before Christmas came, days i’ll grant you but still we hadn’t had Christmas yet. Anyway that’s my pet niggle and soapbox moan over, have a great day flower and thank you for bringing pleasure to an awful lot of people.
    Love and crafty hugs

    I saw earlier today that Heidi Swapp’s son passed away. My daughters are the same age and my heart aches for her and her family. I would love to see this card go to her.ReplyCancel

    I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer so my mind is full of questions. How do I tell my family and friends. What will the treatment entail. What will the next 6 months be like.
    But this I know with Gods help and support from all who love me and whom I love ,I will have the strength to keep goingReplyCancel

    Your cards are so lovely that I’m actually having difficulty finding words to express how I feel about your creations and the inspiration you share. I think i need a Thesaurus to find new words lol!
    I admit I have little on my mind today except coping with pain. My recent shoulder surgery is healing but physical therapy today keeps my shoulder screaming at me as a reminder that it hurts. It’s not funny but I do have to try to find the humor or loose it altogether. I’m six months into recovery from a terrible fall resulting in broken bones so I have to find a way to cope. I’m doing my best to find things to laugh about. That’s what’s on my mind today. LOL!ReplyCancel
