And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Everything's Coming Up Roses

Hello friends!  I've been having so much fun with the new Fragrance stamp set released earlier this month by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I have two cards full of roses to share with you today.

The first is an easel card using the Fragrance stamp set and the colors from the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge.

Creative Nugget:  My card is a CASE of THIS easel card created by Jo Ann Sinclair who was the Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers this past Sunday.  The easel base was lined with papers from the Blushing Rose Collection and die cuts made with the the Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies and the Vintage Labels Dies.  The rose image was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut, adding an extra layer for dimension.  Some Fancy Foliage was added along with a few smaller flowers cut with the Birds & Nest Dies.  The sentiment on the  Recipe Tag die cut is from Ornate Border Sentiments and the one on the bottom panel is from the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set.  A few Butterflies and a silk bow were added to finish the card.

Here are two close up views of this easel card:

The second card, made from the same Fragrance stamp set, has an entirely different look:

Creative Nugget:  The rose image was stamped randomly using Watering Can archival ink on the top and KaiserCraft DP cut on an angle was added to the bottom.  A leftover strip of Shabby Rose Paper and a Beautiful Border die cut were added before cutting the panel with the Flourished Star Pattern Die and stitching along the diagonal.  The sentiment was cut using the Circle Ornament Die and matted with Smokey Shadow paper cut with the Matting Circle Die.  The roses, colored with Copic Markers, were fussy cut and popped up on the border of the sentiment panel.  Seam binding and pearls were added to finish the card.

These cards will be submitted to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful day!

These cards are great... I love the die-cuts and the flowers. Great job! We appreciate you joining our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you join us again this week for a brand new challenge. Leaving you the hope only God's Word can provide in Joshua 1:9 and it says, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Have an awesome week!
