Proverbs 31:25

This beautiful card was made with a stamp featuring one of my favorite Bible passages.  I made it for a friend who was feeling overwhelmed after getting a breast cancer diagnosis a few months ago.  I am so happy to say that she is doing very well at this point.  She has a lot of people praying for her and she herself puts her trust in Jesus Christ.

Paper:  WW, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Bermuda Bay, DP
Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip

Vintage Well Wishes

A friend was in the hospital recently undergoing a painful procedure.  To cheer her up, I made a card with an Autumn themed design.  I used one of the dies from the SU Leaflets Framelits set and sponged it with ink in Fall colors.  I tilted the background papers to give the card a fun effect.

Work Baby Shower

Last week we had a baby shower at work for 2 ladies who are both due soon.  This card is for one of the ladies who shared that she is having a girl.  The card I posted last week was for the other lady.

This quick and simple card uses new and old SU supplies.  The DP is from one of the very first packages I purchased from SU almost 9 years ago.  The embossing folders and stamps are more recent.  Like many crafters, I keep adding to new supplies my horde before I  use up the old.  However, I recently made a promise to myself not to buy any more DP until I used up the paper that I have had in my stash from 5 years or more.

Baby Blocks

This card was made for a co-worker who is due to have her first child soon.  She and her husband are waiting until the baby is born to know whether they have a girl or a boy.  That makes things a little challenging for me to make a card.  I chose a DP that had a rainbow of colors and went from there.  The layout for the blocks was CASEd from this card.

Stamps:  Sophisticated Serifs - SU
Paper:  Marina Mist, Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, DP
Ink:  WW Craft Ink
Accessories:  White embossing powder, Heat Tool, Square punch, Postage stamp punch, Gems, Embossing folder

Cafe au Natural

Yesterday was National Coffee Day and I made a card in honor of the occasion.  Coffee is my favorite drink.  In fact, I would almost start an IV on myself to have a continuous infusion of coffee.   I made this card just in time to enter it in this year's Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  

I used new and old elements in my craft stash for this card.  The leaves are a combination of old Cuttlebug dies and new SU framelits.  The Cuttlebug die cuts were embossed while the SU cuts are stamped with the matching stamp set.  I also used new to me coffee-themed dies and stamps from Verve.  I like to add a touch of sparkle to my work, so I used sparkle gel pens to accent the word coffee and the coffee in the cup.

Stamps:  One Cup, Coffee - Verve; Vintage Leaves - SU
Paper:  WW, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, DP
Ink:  Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke
