Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop/Crafters of Faith

I have 2 cards to view this morning, this first one is for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop, there are several of us that get together and create using some of our favorite stamps to show you and hopefully inspire you. Please be sure and check out all the gorgeous creations along the way and leave a comment, the hop ends Friday the 3rd at midnight. Again there will be a prize of $25.00 to the one that is ramdonly chosen. This month the members are :
Olga (me)
Selma
Loretta
Clare
Carla
Marsha
Linda.
My card is 5X7, I love that size, I started out with Gina K pure luxury white, then Stampin Up Black, then a piece of designer paper(??), I then cut a rectangle out using Spellbinders Fleur de Liz, then cut out a smaller one, stamped the verse from 3312 Uplifting Scriptures on that, sponged around and attached to the first rectangle. Ran Ribbon down the center of the card and attached the rectangles. Punched out several ferns and flowers using Martha Stewart punches and attached, put Stickles in the center or each flower to finish.

For this card, I also used Heartfelt Creations stamps, can you tell I love their stamps!!!! This one is 3321 Believe. There are several of us ladies that formed a group Crafters of Faith. We all blog and that's how we met, so Kelly started this up through SCS . It was open for anyone to join and after a week or 2 she closed it and we were formed LOL. We have had one mini color challenge and now this is our monthly challenge. Kelly (our leader) started us out and chose for us to create a card/project around Genesis since this is the beginning of this group’s creation and He has brought us all together for many common purposes. We could also use
Genesis, 1: 1-27~ Job 38: 28-30 … Rain, Frost~ Isaiah 65: 21-25 … Building houses, wolf, lamb, ox, serpent~ Jeremiah 4: 23-26 … Heaven, mountains, hills, desert~ Matthew 6:26-29 … birds~ John 1:1-5 … Darkness, light~ John 15:5 …. Vine, branches. I went with John 15:5. She also ask we use yellow, green, blue and/or brown. As you can see I did and went with flowers. I used Kassie's Brocade embossing folder, Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Oval Large, Petite Oval Small and Fleur de Lis Accents. I then used Cheery Lynn's Fanciful Flourish, and several Martha Stewart punches for the Flowers and fern leaves. If you will look to the right on my side bar you will see a list of members, I do hope you take time to visit each one to view their gorgeous creations. Thanks for hanging with me on this post, I know it's long........ Have a blessed day and remember, God loves you!!!!
