Word Art Wednesday

As always the challenge over at Word Art Wednesday is anything goes with the option of using the scriptural word art provided.  I recently had a friend who had a family bereavement and I made this card for her and her family

I am also including it in the challenge at Sister Act #50 which is another anything goes challenge and
Allsorts challenge #252 to use dies

The floral cross stamp is by Personal Impressions and I stamped it using Memento ink.  I coloured it using my ProMarkers.  I used one of the Spellbinders Decorative Label #8 dies to cut out the panel and attached it to the card with 3D foam pads.  I don't know the manufacturer of the sentiment stamp as there is no information on the wooden block. I stamped it on to a label I had cut using an X-Cut die, the ribbon and paper were from my stash

Hi my friends and a challenge

Hello everyone.  After another lengthy gap I am back.  Unfortunately my dear FiL, who had been ill from the week before Christmas, passed away a month ago. We've been so busy with everything and starting to clear his house I haven't really had the time or the inclination to be making any cards. Today I decided to have a go at a couple of challenges and have made some cards.

The challenge at ABC Christmas challenge is F for Family and Friends showing a personalised element

I've made this card for a friend who always asks me to make Christmas cards for various family members.  The design of the card is from a copy of Card making and Papercraft.  The tree is made up of scraps of papers rolled up.  I attached the buttons using Glossy Accents and also used it on the background for a snowflake effect.I put the star brad on top of the tree before I matted the white card to the brown.  Using a fine liner I sketchily went around the card to create a frame and added gemstones.  Finally I used the computer to generate the sentiment panels which I adhered to brown card before adding to the card with 3D foam pads
