Joy Comes in the Morning

Just a quick post with a card for this week’s MIM #207 with the super Laura Bassen and also for Muse’s Challenge #111 with their lovely guest designer Kristie Goulet. IMG_2533

I made the background paper with Laura’s “smooshing” technique. I made a lot of background papers with this technique today and they remind me of some of the beautiful skies in my father’s paintings.

I would like to dedicate this post to my Dad, from whom I received a wonderful card of encouragement today. I love you, Dad.
Have you been over to my father’s online gallery? There’s a link on the right side of my blog.

Here’s Laura’s card with the super cool and clever Double Partial Die Cutting. In the video, Laura wondered about triple die cutting. Now I’m pondering that on myself. Maybe I’ll give it a try?

Laura’s cool card:

Laura-MIM card

And here’s Kristie’s beautiful creation:

IMG_2535 I stamped the sun, clear heat embossed and then, like Laura, I did some ink blending/sponging.


IMG_2534Like Kristie, I used some new goodies from PTI. The sun is from Blue Skies stamp set and the sentiment is from Easter Alleluias.Β  The Joy is from PTI’s Holiday Double cuts die. I’m not exactly sure if this would count as a CAS card, but I’m going to try playing it over at HLS’s March Challenge:Sponging. There seem to be a lot of disparity in the CAS design style, so I’m still figuring it all out. πŸ˜‰ I am also playing this over at Word Art Wednesday: Challenge #176.


Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Wow, this is truly awesome…Love the colors you chose to ink the paper and the sentiment and design. Love it! I am so glad you joined us in our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. We are beginning another challenge today so, hope you link with us again. Leaving you an inspirational verse as declared by Jesus to them that believe in John 6:39 and it says, “And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. ” Have a blessed week!
