Friends (like Aaron and Hur)

I am so thankful for friends! I’m sure you’re familiar with Moses? Do you know about Moses, Joshua, Aaron, Hur and the Amalekites? I have friends like Aaron and Hur. I thank God for them. This card, designed for PTI’s March 2015 Blog Hop Challenge, is dedicated to the friends (some new online ones) and family who have been praying for me through this current trial. Thank you Nicole and PTI for the year of free stamps. You don’t know what an incredible blessing this is to me right now!

Thank you.

Today I’m excited to share yet another rainbow heart card with you. 🙂


                A bright paper rainbow of hearts surrounded by white. Looks a little like Michele’s at Muse’s challenge #100! 

Here’s another look at my card.


First, I created a rainbow background paper with SU papers die cut with my pinked die cuts. Then, I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die to make the rainbow of hearts.  For Casology’s Week 129 Challenge, I used a NBUS PTI sentiment stamp and some other, NBUS, Avery Elle Pinked ELLE-ments square dies along with clear embossing powder and some bubble wrap foam to make a homemade foam heart sticker for MIM’s #197.

Rainbow Hearts

Today I’m excited to share another card with you.


  A bright ink-blended rainbow surrounding white hearts.  Almost the reverse of this CAS beauty of Michele’s at Muse’s challenge #100! I like the way this card turned out.


First, I used my new to me SU Circle Circus Stamps (NBUS), Versamark and clear embossing powder. Next, I used my mini ink blenders, Hero Arts Blue ink, SU inks , and Tim Hotlz Distress Ink to create a a blended rainbow background paper. Then I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die.

Tartan Too, with Stamps

I have another masculine tartan card to share with you.


I used a stamping technique that I learned from Ashely Cannon Newel for PTI’s Make It Monday.


To make this pattern, I used stamps from PTI’s Background Basics: Super Stripes stamp set for the first time.

Notice that the above card is very similar to the one below, but I made one using stamps and the other with a masking technique.


I like both results.

Being that my mother is Scottish, born and bred, I’m quite partial to tartan. 🙂


The Jeremiah 29:11 sentiment is from PTI’s “A Cheerful Heart” stamp sent. This is the first time that I’ve used this particular stamp from the set. So, I’ll be entering this into CAS-ology’s and Darnell’s NBUS challenges. My husband gave me a PTI gift certificate for Christmas. This stamp set was my on the top of my wish list and I was so happy when it came in the mail! I like this stamp set a lot. Like all of the PTI stamps I have, they are beautiful and wonderfully easy to use.

The design for this card was inspired by Michele’s sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch – #106. I’m having a lot of fun with this sketch! I am also playing along over at SSS’s  Wednesday (It’s a Guy Thing) Challenge.
