BK - He Is Risen

Fridays are special days - who doesn't love TGIF, right? But here on my blog Fridays are also special because they are the day I get to post as a design team member for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.

This week I am featuring the He Is Risen stamp on my cards. You can check it out in the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps store - HERE.

I stamped the image on two pieces of the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps designer paper for these cards. The paper is amazing - and it can even be colored on, which I did with Copic Markers

The Names of God

On the 7th of the month for the past 11 years, the SCS Crafters of Faith group members have shared cards they've made with a common theme, chosen by one of the members. These challenges are inspired by Scripture, though the cards themselves do not have to have a religious theme. 

My friend Kelly started the group in September 2012 and it continued under her leadership for many years. When she stepped down, my friend Faye took on the task of keeping us organized, which she did so well. I appreciate both of these friends so much! THANK YOU Kelly and Faye!

I've enjoyed the group over the years, but have come to the decision that it is time for me to leave the group. Therefore this will be my last Crafters of Faith card.

Sharon chose our Scripture inspiration and theme this month.

Scripture - For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be call Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

Challenge - Be inspired by the last part - His names.

I hope Sharon and the other Crafters of Faith like my card.

SCS Sketch #SC987

I find that having a sketch to use can get my creative ideas flowing, so I love being part of the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge team. There is a new sketch to work with every Wednesday. I encourage you to check them out.

Here's this week's sketch - SC987:

My card:

The inside of the card has a Happy Halloween sentiment.

I hope you'll use the sketch to make a card, too.

From a Kit Series (PP) - Take 26

I started a new series on my blog in July of 2021. The idea was born from the fact that I have a lot of unused card/stamping kits just waiting to have some attention. Sheesh! Seems as though I buy them and they just sit. That just shouldn't be so I'm going to commit to using a kit once a month for this "From a Kit" series.

As I mentioned in my May 2023 blog posts, the only "kits" I have left (after completing the first 21) are SEVERAL Stampin' UP! Paper Pumpkin kits. I also mentioned that I've discovered I'm not really very fond of the card designs found in the Paper Pumpkin kits... so I decided IF I'm going to use those Paper Pumpkin kits that I've invested in, I'll need to veer away from the designs as they appear in the kits. 

This month I made four cards using the October 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit - Peaceful Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

In addition to the Paper Pumpkin kit I used the following items...

CS - Accent Opaque 120# White and SU Basic Black

Dies - Honey Bee Sweet Stack Rectangles, MFT Sentiment Strips, and MFT Stitched Rectangles

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black

ONE to See in '23 - December

The 3rd of each month is a special day here on my blog - it's the day that Kelly (the founder of this series), Barb, and I share our One Plus Twelve cards. The idea is to use the same ONE stamp (not a set) each month to create a card. Sentiments can be used, too, if we choose. 

My ONE stamp this year is a small stamp - a paintbrush from the Waffle Flower Little Painter stamp set.

And the 1 + 12 Series for 2023 is a wrap... but don't despair. We three have decided to choose another stamp and begin again in January. I already have my ONE stamp picked out and am looking forward to revealing it to all of you on January 3, 2024.

Be sure to head over to Barb's and Kelly's blogs to see their December 1 + 12 cards...
