Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Artneko Christian Images of Children + Texts ~ Snippety like!

Hullo there everyone! Some "snippety" work to share with you here today! First off is some masking and black silhouette embossing with image below. Stamped + embossed image on white snippet. Use Nestie die cut for mask, used Adirondack lemonade and Cloudy blue, mixed with Distress Ink Broken China. The folder is from Forever Friends and used glitter on red embossed heart to tie in with greeting.
Stamps are a new set from Artneko, Christian Images of Children + Texts. So good to work with, so beautifully cut, love them! here they are here. You dont have to buy whole sheet, they can be bought individually
One post few weeks ago, I used some of these stamps with the polished stone method back on this post here... lovely inky fun!
 Another snippets card - had this lovely piece of rose paper (Bearly My Design digi paper) left and the purple and thought could make card with that! so here we are. I used my long Xcut scallop rectangles for the scallop edge.. shifted twice to get the length, plus SU scallop and oval punch with Daily Bread mini tag stamp. Karen, who I sent this card to is really going through the mill. May God strengthen and encourage her heart and pour out His healing mercy - "as thy days, so shall thy strength be" (Deut. 33:22) and I pray for the needs of your heart, too.
Have more cards to share but not time to post it seems. Commenting will be made as able - but really appreciate you all popping over and caring to comment. May God richly bless your day wherever you may be!

Two lovely cards but the top one is my favourite. That silhouette stamp is gorgeous.

Carol L said...

I love that sweet silhouette image, and how you added the subtle panel of color. What I really like is how you managed to perfectly fit a circle within an oval! Well done!

Di said...

Oh Shaz

Two really lovely cards - I do so love the darling silhouette of course and the circle with the oval (as has already been said) is very clever.Beautiful flowers too.

You in the wars again honey? Hope all is OK?

Hugs
