Vintage Ladies Card and Ex 33:14

Oh, my goodness!  It is Tuesday again!  Where did the past week go to?  I am trying to get into a schedule for these posts.  I do better with a schedule.  So, Tuesdays might be it! :)
    I thought I would post a few more of my favorite cards from DTGD .

 I made this card using some favorite lady stamps from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions.  They are really detailed images and show up best when stamped with VersaFine ink; I used Vintage Sepia.  The printed paper is Stampington, an insert  from a Take Ten magazine. :)  I have several sheets of really neat paper from when I used to get that magazine.  A couple of years ago, I picked up these little frames that are just right to frame an inchie, from a garage sale.  My Mona Lisa inchie is also from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions.  I stamped it and punched it out and put it on that cute little frame and then there is the clear top to stick over it. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip from SU!  I added a copper brad, ( I love copper hardware best.) and the pearls. I really enjoy making vintage cards.

I did this for the following challenges:

Vintage Ladies

This next card is a mixed media card.  I used acrylic paint with a stencil.  I had fun doing this card, and might use acrylic paint again.  The stencil is one that I picked up at a stamp show a couple of years ago and had never used!  I added the stick on gems from my stash.  The Bible verse is from Words of Wisdom by SU!  And this  verse gives me such comfort!

This card was for the following challenges:

Christmas Cards in August

            Happy Tuesday!  I didn't have any special plans for today which is  a perk of being retired. My GF unexpectedly called and we went out for lunch. :)   I thought I would post more of my DTGD cards.  I used a new Christmas stamp set ( new to me) for this card. The Sounding Joy by SU! There is so much I could do with this set, and look forward to using it again.  I stamped the star sentiment with SU! white craft ink and heat embossed with SU! Winter White embossing powder.   I also used a stamp from the set to stamp the envelope. I love stamping the envelopes, I think it makes it special. I loved how this script looks on the envelope.   The white stars were cut with SU! Star Die.  And the sentiment Christmas blessings is a rub on from SU!  The red CS is Cherry Cobbler by SU!  I mounted the Cherry Cobbler panel on a square card.  I think I had gotten these square cards and envelopes on sale at Michaels.   Love sales and coupons! :)

                This card was made for the following challenges:


Here are four more Christmas cards I did  for DTGD.  I made them from printed paper and stickers from Hobby Lobby.  Who says it has to be complicated?  My goal this year has been to make at least 3 cards a month, so when December comes I will have most of my cards done. I also am trying to stamp the insides, so I don't have to do that in a hurry.  It is almost as difficult to think of what you want to stamp on the inside as making the card itself!   :)

This card was made for the following challenges:

Masculine 60th Birthday Card

       Hi everyone!  I am finally posting one of my cards from the DTGD challenges. This was one of my favorites. I made it for my brother-in-law's 60th birthday.  I wanted it to be special, so I incorporated his photo on it to personalize it.
        I used Tim Holtz Artful Muse set of Embossing Folders to make it masculine.  These are small folders, so I was able to fold the man holding the umbrella embossing folder  over the top of the card stock to run thru the Big Shot.  Then I folded the cogs&wheels folder  over the card stock  from the bottom.  I used the arrows on the card because we were to point something out on  one of the challenges.  I know that arrows are popular now, but as of yet I have no dies for them, so these were handmade. :)  The circles and squares are part of a challenge requirement also. The sentiment was computer generated. All paper is SU!                        Challenges are so fun, because by the time you use all the required elements, you have your card!  I thought this turned out to be a fun card and already mailed it; I hope he likes it.

This card was made for the following  Splitcoast challenges:

F4A180"Point it Out"
AOCC13 (All Occasion Card Challenge)
