Cabana and Gold

I have enjoyed playing with the Fancy foil designer vellum that is in the Occasions catalog - I really hope it is carried over into the new catalog that will come out faster than we think!  Can't wait :)

For the card I am sharing with you today, I paired the gold with Coastal Cabana and added a little texture with the Chevron folder.

Speaking of the new catalog, I probably better order some more of my favorite Naturals composition specialty paper before it is no longer available!!

Feed My Starving Children

My oldest had the opportunity to participate in a 24 hour fast in coordination with packing food kits for the Feed My Starving Children program.  He had a great time with his friends and apparently decided to pull an all nighter in addition to his fasting.  Needless to say he was a little tired when he got home!

I used the digital download pages called A Split Second and took out a few elements, then added a few hybrid pieces.  There are some chevron punches, some Gorgeous Grunge images, washi tape and essentials wooden elements in the mix.  Oh, and of course card stock - Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Basic Gray.

I used Hip Notes for the sentiments on the essentials wooden elements and added the Chevron punched pieces with rolled up glue dots.

Wonderful Life

Since I just ordered the floral fusion sizzlit recently, I have  been playing with it a little bit and this card is one of those experiments.
I used the Positively Chevron, Gorgeous Grunge and Perfect Pennants stamp sets with the little flowers as accents.

I am drawn to this style of card and like to see what different combinations I can work with, but usually Gorgeous Grunge comes into play.

Six Sided Thanks

This is a stamp set I don't pull out often and I think it is because I over think how to use it most of the time.  The card turned out a little busy, but I still think I like it...

I tore a corner off the Epic Day This and That designer series paper and placed a piece of Naturals Composition specialty paper behind it. 

Then, I took a piece of Daffodil Delight and tore the edge and distressed it a little before adding the stamped and punched images.  To top it off, there is some linen thread and a vintage trinket.

Harvest Blessings Birthday

One of my husband's brothers has the same birthday as I do and we celebrated earlier this week.  This is the card I made for him using the Harvest Blessings, Hardwood and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets.

My base is Crumb Cake and I stamped with Soft Suede on all the pieces.  I thought some Burlap and 5/8" Natural Chevron ribbon would look nice next to the hardwood image so I placed those behind the tractor using sticky strip.  On the right side, there is a Starburst framelit and circle framelit layered.

Prayer Journal

Lately, I have been working on some prayer journals that will be going to confirmation students at my church later this year.  They start out as a plain Epic Day This and That Journal and when they are complete, have lots of prayers, verses and sayings in them to get someone started with prayer.  There is of course, lots of room for them to add their own thoughts and ideas.
On the cover, I used some Epic Day This and That designer series paper and washi tape along with the Hexagon Hive thinlits die and some silver basic buttons.

The verses, prayers, etc. that I have compiled to put into the journals are printed using My Digital Studio and when they are on the page look something like this...

I add stamped images and sentiments throughout the journals as well...

Hopefully they will find the gift useful and even enjoy the variety of colors and patterns throughout the book.
