Christian Paper Crafts Challenges Plus More!

Wow, I am way behind on my blogging this week, so I am posting three projects at once. I'll try to make it short and sweet....I promise!

This first card I made for the Wednesday Case Artist Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts....congrats to Becky Reed for being this week's artist! I chose this gorgeous card to re-create. I also used Jen's Color Monday Challenge of turquoise, kraft, white, and optional black.....this Basic Grey "Capella" paper had the perfect colors. The sentiment is from the "Light" set, the first of a new "Full of Grace" line by Our Daily Bread designs. I used a Bow Easy to tie the May Arts Satin Ribbon; the pearls are by Zva Creative; there are several layers of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist for a shimmery finish. Some other challenges which were included: Aud Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes (with a sentiment); Delightful Sketches & Challenges: "Girly, Pearls, and Lace" (my lace is the doily lace punch, btw!); the Creative Card Crew challenge: Sparkle and Shine; the Sentimental Sundays challenge: Words to Inspire; and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge: Trust In Him.

My second card was created for my Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.....this week's challenge is to use summer flowers plus a verse of your choice. I have also included the following challenges: Aud Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes (with a sentiment); Charisma Cardz challenge: Hot, Hot, Hot (sunflowers bloom in the hottest part of summer); the Creative Card Crew challenge: Sparkle and Shine; Lexi's Creations challenge: Emboss It; and the Sentimental Sundays challenge: Words to Inspire. I used the ODBD set, "From Me To You", and cut out and popped up the words from the scripture verse; the sunflowers are Pre-cut 3d flowers by Ecstasy Crafts; the ribbon is by May Arts; I used the Cuttlebug large embossing folder, Polka Dots, to emboss the card; and used "Pearl" Glimmer Mist on the card base only.

My third project was made for the Scripture Saturday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. The challenge is to use the verse from Psalm 119:45 on your layout, card, altered item, etc. This eagle image is from a greeting card which I couldn't part with....the embossed eagle and scene was just too gorgeous! Mary's challenge today was the perfect opportunity to use this image. The verse was printed from my pc and cut out with a Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio die, added twill ribbon, paper piercing, and some Hero Arts Metallic Dots. I'm going to give this to hubby for his computer desk (since it was originally his card years ago!) This also qualifies for the Our Daily Bread designs' Shining the Light Challenge: "Texture It"....the entire scene is embossed beautifully; the Fun On Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts: "No Coloring". Also, the Paper Cutz challenge is to use something metal; the Belli Challenge: Round and Metal (my forgotten embellies are the metallic dots I picked up in the clearance section at Archiver's months ago); and the Sentimental Sundays challenge: Words To Inspire.

Whew! I think that's it! Now.....back to my room....more projects to finish today!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend!!
