and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

My first sample was made using the Grateful stamp set.


Creative Nugget:  A Neenah Solar Crest panel cut and embossed with the Boho Background Dies was stitched to a Blackberry Bliss mat and attached to a card base.  The Columbine flower from the Grateful stamp set was white embossed around the edges of another white panel.  Watered down distress inks were dabbed unto the panel, dried with a heat tool, and cut with one of the Leafy Edged Borders.  The Leafy Edged Borders were also used to cut a blackberry mat and paper from the Christian Faith Collection. These were all layered, stitched, and added to the top of the card. Oval and Stitched Ovals were layered and added to the left side of the card.  A sentiment from the Beauty stamp set was embossed as well as the columbine flower.  The flower was watercolored with distress inks, fussy cut, and added to the oval.  A few extra flowers were cut and popped over the columbine for dimension and a bow added to finish the card.

Beauty was used for my second sample.

Creative Nugget:  A Fancy Foliage Die was used to cut a flourish from paper from the Blushing Rose Collection and a panel of the same paper was added to a card base.  The Leafy Edged Borders were used to cut panels of pink card stock and Vintage Cream card stock embossed with the Boho Background Die which were then stitched together and added to the front of the card.  The lilies from the Beauty set were colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and added to the card front along with the foliage flourish.  The sentiment was stamped on matted Ovals.  A silk bow and pearls were added to finish the card.

Two beautiful cards. I really like the new Leafy Edged dies. It enhances the card. Your stitching on both cards is done very nicely. I like that you stamped the columbine in white on the one card. The boho background is beautiful on both cards.

Your embossed white columbine is just perfect for this card! It's a lovely counter point to the main columbine image!! I love pink and green so it goes without saying that the lily card is da bomb! Such pretty layers and textures, Cathy!!!

I like the quilted look to the backgrounds on both of these cards, Cathy. The pink card is my favorite with the lilies and flourishes.

Cathy, I like how you used the columbine stamp to create your background, great idea! Plus the stitching adds such a nice element. Your lily card is beautiful with the layers, perfect coloring and use of the edge die. I am having fun being a guest designer for ODBD!

Sue D said...

Beautiful floral cards!

Pages with Paula said...

I enjoyed seeing your beautiful cards and reading how them were made. You ladies have convinced me this is a group of stamps and dies that would like to be part of my collection of tools!

Excellent artwork Cathy! Both are stunning, rich in color and details especially the added stitching! Beautiful, beautiful!

Robin Clendenning said...

Beautiful cards Cathy!! I just adore the second one because of all the beautiful papers together and the stitching and love gorgeous job you did coloring the lilies!!! I love how you used the boho bg to emboss you top layer and love how you made your scrollies from the bottom paper to tie it all together! Just gorgeous!
Your first one is beautiful too, with the resist technique on top...make a pretty bg!Love the black border on the beautiful "quilted" bottom white....love the die used for embossing. Also the beautiful stiching on this one too!!
