One of my favorite of a new found challenge is this one called Word Art Wednesday Challenge. Here is my card for this week's challenge using this verse from 1 John. I used Basic Grey design paper as my background and my diecuts from Spellbinder and my cross diecut from Verve. I have had this Jollee's cross hoarded for some time. As we enter Holy Week next week, I pray that you will focus on just how much God loves us all. I think this will also qualify for the challenge over on the Belli140 challenge this week to use 3 shapes.

I used the faux silk technique, which was so wonderfully demonstrated by Angie over on the ODBD blog on a video. The stamps I used are from ODBD. I colored the ivory ribbon with a copic marker to match the color of the cardbase of the card. I used spellbinders and a Martha Stewart border punch.

here to see all the fabulous samples made by the design team.
A card for Word Art Wednesday. A great scripture was provided. I used river rock ink to stamp leaves over the top and also on the card base. I made this flower with a diecut. I love discovering spiritual and uplifting challenges like this. Spreading the word in the beautiful way of paper crafting is a perfect way to share the Good news with the world. ....so the world will know!!!

This card is made for the Monday Mojo for Verve. I used Verve stamps, Graphics45 design paper, and Stampin' up cardstock. I used tuxedo black and more mustard ink. The butterfly was stamped on design paper with some shading added with a copic marker. I used pearls for the butterflies body. The paper punch is from Martha Stewart.

There was a 1-2-3 formula for the CAS-ual Friday challenge today. I used one pattern on the paper, one image, and one sentiment. The stamps are from Flourishes. The papers from Stampin' Up and the design paper from Graphics 45.

The Flourish Timeless Tuesday Challenge was to use scallops and lace. I decided to let this shell set feel a little ink since they have been neglected for a while now. I embossed the light blue paper with a Sizzix folder, stamped the images in Tuxedo black, London gray, and sahara sand. I did a little shading with copic makers. I decided to contrast the lace with the jute bow.

Stampin' sisters in Christ was to use dark and light colors. I used black and white. I found my black and white dp on my paper cutter table left from a previous project. Added the lace and some stamped berries to the scripture panel. This was quick and easy, but I really liked the contrast.
Faux embossing was the technique this week on Just Us Girls Challenge 127. I was out of town for a few days because of Spring Break, so I am doing catchup on some of my favorite challenges I missed over the weekend. The punches I used are Martha Stewart and the stamp set I used is from Flourishes. I also tried out my Becca's Bow maker that I just got on Saturday. Wow, it makes wonderful bows so easily.
This is for the challenge over at Word Art Wednesday. This is a lovely quote from Mother Teresa.
I did all the stamping and attached the quote and then ran it through my cuttlebug using a folder from Sizzix. It reminded me of textured wallpaper. The stamp set is from Stampin' Up.

This card is for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week to use wings on your card. I decided these butterflies from Our Daily Bread Designs fits the bill. I stamped the background of the river rock paper with the ODBD background stamp that coordinates with this butterfly set. I diecut the flowers with a Tim Holtz diecut. I love the sentiment that reminds us just how much God loves us.

The bigger picture is the outside of the card, the smaller inset is the inside. I used an inked embossing folder to stamp the pattern on the folded back part of the front. I used Memento Bahama Blue to stamp the medallion. I used tuxedo black for the inside sentiment. I am not sure of the source of the medallion, but the inside scripture is from Stampin' Up. The card is made from a 4 by 12 strip of cardstock. I folded on the 4 inch and 8 inch points on my Scor Pal. I folded the ends into the middle and then did the slanted fold in such a way that it meets in the middle diagonally across the front. I learned this fold from a SU demonstrator years ago. I haven't made one is quite awhile.
