I used Studio G Stamps I purchased from Pez A Doodles Designs, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The card itself is pretty simple. My base is Bordering Blue, then a layer of Lovely Lilac, then a layer of dp from a big stack of Me & My Big Ideas papers that I got for Christmas.
For my card, I used a base of Chocolate Chip, a layer of Not Quite Navy, and a layer of Very Vanilla. I topped it off with a pice of Basic Grey dp, from their Periphery line. I stamped my cross, from Our Daily Bread Designs, in Chocolate Chip. I stamped my sentiment in Not Quite Navy, and used Nesties to cut everything out. At the top, I added Not Quite Navy brads, and under the sentiment (from Stampin Up)I put two pieces of chocolate grosgrain ribbon.
I made this for last week’s Color Monday challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts Magazine. They have such fun challenges, and it is a great place to gather and chat with other women! They have a gallery to upload pics to, and all sorts of other extras like Bible Study, a Question of the Day, a General Chit Chat area – you have to go check it out!
On this card, I used two Our Daily Bread Designs sets – Scripture Collection 2 and May God Hold You. I used a Copic marker to highlight some words and some flowers, a white gel pen to add dots (I love dots), Nesties, and my Cuttlebug with the texture folder for the black layer. I totally enjoyed making this card!
I hope you’ll come and visit us over on the CPCM boards, and participate in the challenges! there are some for scrapbookers as well!
Aren’t these flowers gorgeous?? NinaB drew them herself, and you can download them for free here. This is one talented lady, I’m telling you!
I printed the image in a large size, so I could really highlight the flowers and the quote from Charles Spurgeon – it is a wonderful quote! The card base is one of the pre scored cards from a pack. To keep it simple, I used Basic Black as my highlight layer. I got my Copics out and colored the flowers in bright colors, and used a couple of DaisyD’s rhinestone blings to center two of the flowers. I really tried to leave it simple so the flowers themselves would be the focus!!
