Prayer Cards

Sometimes you just need a card to let someone know they are in your prayers. I made 2 of them and both are going out in tomorrow’s mail. Sad, but necessary.

This first one is for an older woman at church that just needs to know she’s remembered and cared for.

For both of these cards, I used backgrounds made with shaving cream and acrylic paints. Yes, they were fun to make. I used the MFT Floral Fantasy Background stamp and some green embossing powder to give them more character. I also used the MFT Sending Prayers stamp set and die-namic. They also have blue, yellow, green, and white card stock, as well as some adhesive. I used both tape and liquid adhesives to get the panel to stay on the card base. The shaving cream makes the card stock it was done on a bit slippery and it doesn’t like to stick very well.

This second one is for a family that lost their baby in childbirth. I can’t even imagine how horrible that is. But, they know God, so they have hope.

On this one, I cut the background down a bit and left a bit of the white border showing. Everything else is the same as the first. Granted, trying to put die cuts with sticky on the back onto the background, have it stick and get it to line up correctly was a lot of work. They aren’t exactly they same, but the same basic layout.

These are going both on the MFT Sketch challenge for the week, and the SSS Wednesday challenge of making your own background.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today. You are appreciated.


Having Fun

So, on WeCraftCards this week, the challenge was to make a “Lift card”.  I’ve seen these before, with a different name, which I can’t remember at this point, but here’s what I made.

Used a fun holographic paper for my background, then did some Oxide Ink for the inside, with the Hero Arts Jellyfish background embossed on it using Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder so they would pick up a bit of color from the background and look more like real jellyfish.  Used water just inside the jellyfish bodies to make those lighten a bit.  The stamps and dies are all from the Hero Arts March 2019 MMA kit.  Saw that one and determined it would definitely be a good one to have.  My husband agreed, so I got it.  Love it when he tells me to go ahead and get something because I get so excited about it.

I also got the Betta Fish set at the same time.  Here are a couple of cards I made with that one:

6-3-19 Happy Bday Fishes

And this last one is what I made for my husband for our anniversary:

6-3-19 Rob Anniversary

You can kind of see from the top inside corner that shows, that I splattered both colors of the ink I used inside, as well.  The ink was what came in the kit, 2 reactive Hero Arts inks.  Splattered a bit of Spectrum Noir sparkle ink in the background and used the brush pen itself to add a bit of sparkle to the fish.  My husband loves the card.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
