April International Blog Highlights

Welcome back to another International Blog Highlight. This month our theme is weddings. I know that we will have a few weddings this year and I do love making handmade cards for these special occasions. This month I did something non-traditonal and I am super happy with how it turned out.

Non Traditional wedding card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight. For more information and inspiration visit www.faithgracestamp.com

The base layer is Very Vanilla, even though it is hard to tell and then I cut out the Detailed Floral Thinlits on a sheet of Urban Underground Designer Series Paper. I then layered a piece of vellum behind that and did the stained glass technique for the flowers. The tiny pearls give a dainty accent to the flowers and the soft stain ribbon gives it an elegant touch. This is so bright and fun for a summer wedding, don’t you agree?

I would love it so much if you would visit Kylie’s blog and vote for my card. The top 10 cards will earn a spot in an International Blog Hop and I would love to participate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you like my card please be sure to leave me a comment and subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post!

A Little Lucky Treat!

Hello laddies! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you going to celebrate today or tonight? We will be gathering with friends that were on our Belize mission trip to share photos and videos.

I’ve created a fun treat holder for you today:

Adorable St. Patrick's Day treat holder made using the curvy keepsake box from Stampin' Up! Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

This adorable piece was made using the Curvy Keepsake box from Stampin’ Up! I used only half of the die, cutting 2 out and running them through the chunky embossing folder. Then I glued the 2 parts together and ties with the gold and white ribbon from Sale-A-Bration. The clover was made using the Pansy Punch die and the cute greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Wouldn’t this be a fun favor for the holiday?

Get Well cards are always good to have on hand and I prefer to make mine as bright and cheery as possible. The color combination of Watermelon Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder and Rich Razzleberry are just perfect together. I love how the flowers from the Jar of Love set work so well with the stems from the Number of Years Set.

Hey Chick stamp set from Stampin' Up along with the Dynamic Hexagon embossing folder. Fantastic pairing! Fine more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

The Sale-A-Bration set Hey Chick paired with the Dynamic Textures Hexagon folder are a perfect pairing. I love how when the folder is lightly inked it can appear like chicken wire.  The main images was colored using our new Watercolor Pencils, which are now back in stock. Grab them while you can, because supplies will run low again before the next shipment arrives!

It’s more than a holiday

Hello my stampin’ friends! What a treat we have for you today. My peeps over at EarningAlaska2018 are doing a blog hop. The theme for this month is Anything but a Holiday. We are taking stamp sets from the 2016 Holiday Catalog and using them for non-holiday projects.

Sympathy card showcasing a greeting from the Suite Sayings stamp set. Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

I am showcasing the Suite Sayings stamp set. I have a friend at church whose father just passed away and I thought this would make a good sympathy card greeting. The recipient is also a man so I felt the Woodland Folder would be a good choice, and this color combo is masculine as well.

Now it’s time to hop on over to Sherri’s blog and see what she has in store for us. I would love to hear from you in the comments and be sure to subscribe to the blog so that you never miss another piece of inspiration!
