7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store Challenge: ANYTHING GOES!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today starts a new monthly challenge on the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store Challenge Blog!
 
The theme is: ANYTHING GOES!!
 
Today I used an adorable stamp set that is currently on PREORDER in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store! It's called GO WILD and has the cutest little party elephants!! This set also comes with coordinating dies so you don't have to cut anything by hand. The great thing too about this set is that I didn't use any markers to color the images. I actually stamped them on gray cardstock and pink cardstock, and then cut the pink out for the inside of their ears.....easy peasy!


 The sentiment is also part of this stamp set. I used papers from 3 different paper pads on this card. That cute, pink scalloped circle was made using Mama Elephant Framed Tags-Columbus Circle Die. I used some scalloped dies from C.C. Designs to cut around the outside edge of the framed columbus circle and the oval sentiment. The ribbon is from Walmart.

 
Now head on over to the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store Challenge Blog to play along with us so you can win a $20 Gift Certificate to the store. 
 
Have a great rest of the week my friends!

The Greeting Farm Faith Based Set: BLESSED WORDS!

The Greeting Farm has decided to release Faith Based stamps bi-monthly, and with that they implemented a separate Faith Based Team. Fortunately for me, I was able to be part of this awesome endeavor, and join an amazing group of ladies!! You can see the introductory post HERE.

Today starts the introduction of these fabulous stamps and this new set is called BLESSED WORDS. I decided to make two cards with this set to showcase it's versatility. You can use this set for so many different things other than bible journaling.

For my first card, I just stamped the feathers all over black cardstock and heat embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder. I then did the same for one of the words in the set. It came together pretty easily, but I think it packs a punch in the elegance department. :)


My next card was literally a leap of faith. I knew I wanted to do something a little different and out of my comfort zone. I embossed the feathers in gold on watercolor paper. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and water to create the beautiful colors inside the feathers. It turned out to be one of my favorite cards!


This set is now available for purchase in the TGF Store. Be sure to check out the TGF Blog to see more creations from my fellow team members!

Hugs,
Rosie
