More inspired by Unity - shadow stamping

Another Unity Be Inspired card!  This one I turned on its side and kept it clean. I made 6 of these for men's birthdays and used shadow stamping by just stamping off to the side after stamping the front tree:



Tree:  Unity September 2013 kit
Sentiment: Happy Birthday itty bitty

Unity "Be Inspired" - "finger painting" birthday

I finally get a chance to play along in Unity's Be Inspired challenge!

Here's the card sketch:

I kept the layers the length of the card:

Used: http://unitystampco.com/shop/kind-beautiful/

To colour the flowers, I used my little finger and rubbed it lightly on a distress ink pad (barn door) and rubbed from the bottom of the flower outwards. I had to make 6 of these cards so that saved time but I also like how it came out!

DS4J Challenge #90: Easter / Spring

It's that time of year again and a time I personally do not take for granted.  Digistamps4Joy is hosting a Easter / Spring challenge and I chose Easter because it is so important.

The background was stamped with a Chiswick background stamp and once I started stamping I only realised they look like little crosses!

Main image: Floral Cross

Sentiment: My own and quoted from "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

and related to this verse:

1 John 3: 16: "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us."

Please join us at Digistamps4Joy!

PS: If you are a brother or sister in Christ I wish you a joyous celebration in remembering our Saviour's Grace and Mercy in His sacrifice!! May we be reminded of the great price that was paid for us.  Not by works but by Faith!

I'm hosting MAWTT: CASE the Sketch!

Here's a bit of a challenge with a twist at Moving Along with the Times and I'm HOSTING!!!

Sometime last year I found a challenge that invited everyone to share their "ugly" cards.  This card below was one of my very first cards (THREE YEARS AGO!!) and I thought it quite ugly and flat.  So here's the challenge:

Use my card below as your SKETCH!!!
 
You can decide where you want the sentiment (if any) as you'll see from the fabulous cards from the DT. Please head over there!!

Here's my hopefully MUCH improved card!!

The background DP is from Prima "Lady Bird collection".
The central flower was die-cut and stamped from Marianne Collectables COL1303
Sentiment: Unity Stamp Co's September 2013 kit of the month.

Please CASE my "ugly card" as a sketch and join us at Moving Along with the Times!!!
