...Wild Roses

Well I spent another day at Kesha's, and I stamped my little heart out. I wanted to use some sets that I had been neglecting to glean some ideas for projects this year. The following creations were made using the set Wild Rose DD. I LOVE this set. It is so pretty! The first card is a remake of one created by Beate Johns, but I tweaked it a little to keep from copying her outright. I changed the colors, the background stamps, and the layout a little. I love the finished product!

This card is using the same set only I used a new technique to accomplish the look I wanted. Don't worry ladies, those of you in my classes this year will see this very soon...WINK! WINK! This technique smears and smudges the background, but allows you to make the front image crisp and clear. I can't wait to share this with you ladies!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful day, and enjoyed the rain showers we so desperately needed. I will see you back here tomorrow with another card or two.



Stamps: Wild Rose DD, Canvas, Handle With Care, Just Jeans, French Script

Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery

Ink: same as paper

Accessories: ribbon, brads, dimensionals, sponge or dauber

Oh Mercy, I'm so sorry you're feeling discouraged. Please know that you may feel your work here is in vain, but when you give these beautiful cards with a loving heart, you are gaining so much more than any earthly validation. I'm sure it brings such great joy to those who receive them.

Plus you're using your gifts to bring glory to God. Your blog, with its wonderful music, the title of the blog, the cards, everything is worshiping our Lord and I promise you, you will reap your rewards...someday. And I will find you in heaven as you will have such a bright and lustrous crown. Keep on keepin' on. Your work is not in vain!

Once again, both of these just rock! I would have never thought about cutting down the 'with all my heart' like you did -- it makes it just pop like that ~ thanks for the inspiration!!
