A card of Encouragment and a freebie

I made this card today and wanted to share it with you,

I think everything we keep in our life should be uplifting, art entertainment, relationships. There is nothing life building in toxic!

 I think of the Bible verse Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

And Surround yourself and those you love with 'those things'!

I used this beautiful Teal Paper to dry emboss for a background layer 

such pretty details in this Gecko Galz Spring image

Best Glue Ever to hold all the layers

I added a tiny bit of clear glitter nail polish

and here is a freebie for you!

Have a great week!

Making a Beautiful Digital card and using Rubber Stamps

I wanted t share today a card I have made using a beautiful digital image from Gecko Girls Parisian Garden Collection and rich colored paper, lace and a favorite rubber stamp of a favorite verse!
I'll show you the card and then the process:

The frame image is from Gecko Galz Parisian Collection - so many beautiful images in this collection!

I' ve embossed a yummy olive shade of  Ruche  12x12 paper

I've printed this "frame"   Fussy cut and then stamped the verse ( I cannot remember who made this stamp- I unmounted it and did not where it came from.

I edged the frame in Olive Alcohol marker.

Embellishments from my stash

                      Using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever™to hold the paper and the embellishments together 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this stash busting post!

Hello Loast Coast Desings and Carmen's Veranda

A few weeks Ago I posted several Lost Coast challenge cards and mentioned that I had auditioned for the Design Team. Well, the Good news is I made it!  I am now a DT member for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!  Today's post is my first for my new team, I am excited to bring a new company to my readers with high-quality products and great images! Something extra for me - I've met some really wonderful and talented women to work with. 
If you are on DT's you know how important that is!

This Weeks challenge is " Backgrounds".  A great challenge with lots of possibilities.
Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda have some very unique and arty designs, nothing run of the mill here and nothing cutesy.  Artsy, yes. Weird, yes, Classical, yes. Like any company, you will find images you like and images you don't, but that is what is so fun about stamping, you make the art uniquely yours to suit your purpose.

My 'Backgrounds' inspiration card:

I made this card using the 


 Classic Women

On my background, I used a little BGE and Nuvo foil

The images were stamped on Heavenly White 80#  with Memento ink

Mirror board and a feather for a little panache`

Whenever I make a card, even my DT cards, I always make them with someone in mind, I think I will send this one to my mom, she loves women's portraits (she is an excellent portraitist).  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you head over to the Lost Coast Portal for the Backgrounds challenge!  If you don't enter, you can't win!
