Phil 4:8 "Think About Such Things" - A One Layer Floral Card

Hi Again Friends!

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous cards and so much inspiration!!

Our Awana club year ends this week with our Award ceremony, so I created seven of this design (each a bit different) for each of my 5th and 6th grade girls.  

We have had a wonderful year together and several of the girls have been with me for two years...I will miss seeing each of them every week and look forward to serving in Awana again next year - it is always hard to see the girls "move up" but I know that each one of these young ladies will be living for the Lord and that in itself, makes it a bit easier:-)

The design of this card is fairly simple to create- stamp the sentiment from Scripture Collection 9 (ODBD) with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a folded piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock, mask the sentiment with sticky note paper,  stamp the flowers from the Fragrance stamp set (ODBD) with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink (creating a mask for the flowers and repeat stamping), color the flowers with a variety of Stampin’ Write Markers and use an AquaPainter™ to watercolor and soften the markers.

Add the splashes of ink with the Smakin’ Acetate technique, draw a few lines with a Pitt Pen “B” Black Marker and finish off with Clear Wink of Stella®. 

I have more details on each of the steps in a previous post of a similar card here.

That is the same verse that our Missionette girls use. Where can I purchase this set?

Deborah- the stamp set with the verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs and is the Scripture Collection 9 set (http://ourdailybreaddesigns.com/scripture-collection-9.html). They have a larges selection of Scripture stamps at ODBD...love the fonts and verses on all :-)

Oh, Julie, this card is absolutely gorgeous, and I love how you've made a one-layer card and used these beautiful flowers with watercoloring and how wonderfully they showcase this precious Scripture verse. I love it especially since it was a favorite of my mom's when she suffered from cancer and struggled to keep our mind set on good things from God. Beautifully done and so exquisite! LOVE!! Hugs!
