Recipe Challenge


At the last class I ran, for one of the projects I challenged those present to make a card using a recipe that I provided - my assumption that they would find this easy was not correct!!  

It was a real challenge to those present, but what they created was amazing. 
 The recipe was to use from the supplies available:
Two patterned papers,
a scripture stamp,
1/4 of a large doily,
Washi tape or ribbon.
Bling was optional...

I selected this stamp from the Our Daily Bread Designs - Grace's Hope Set - I stamped it in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink , and sponged it with Whisper Rich Plum ink after die cutting and embossing it, before removing the die.

The paper came from a collection I have had for years - I cut it into banner shapes and sponged the edges of it with the Rich Plum ink and also the Sugarloaf Green from Whisper inks, and added matching ribbon and rhinestones. I also sponged the edge of the doily with the Sugarloaf Green ink.

The butterflies were cut with Memory Box dies from pink glitter card, and had clear rhinestones adhered to them, that matched the rhinestones on the corner and top of the banner.

I decorated the inside using some paper lace tape that I sponged with the Sugar Loaf green ink.

  20. I find the sentiment so motivational, Maxine. And the card is very graceful and charming. I like how you sponged the paper lace inside the card.

    Sorry for my absence... been busy with lots. I launched my own initiative last year which is basically a platform to bring together like minded people and host, conduct or facilitate events relating to wellness and such. We have a group of ladies from diverse nationalities and that makes it even more interesting. All in the name of peace, togetherness and love.

    Hope you are well and taking care of you.

    Lots of love and gratitude for all your visits and kind words,

  21. The script is beautiful - both in formation and words. I do like the colourways you have chosen, so subtle and yet they could be described almost as vibrant. So much to like about this card.
    God Bless
