April Crafters’ of Faith Challenge

On the 7th of each month is a new challenge for the Crafters’ of Faith group on SplitCoast Stampers. This month the verse is: Psalms 30:5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

I focused on morning using Lawn Fawn Sunflower ink for my sun rays. I used the stencil from the March Paper Pumpkin kit. In creating this card, I used a video for inspiration. I can’t remember her name, but used her idea with stamps and paper I owned. The mat layer is Seaside Spray embossed with the Subtle embossing folder. It was good thing I purchased it as it is retiring the end of the month. The focal was placed on one of the card bases from the kit, which is Pretty Peacock. I like this card. I think it will be used for anyone needing a bit of encouragement.

Sheep shaped card

I made a card for a two year old girl who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Someone posted on Splitcoast Stampers with a request for Christmas cards. Since I just saw this note yesterday, I contacted the original poster and asked if an encouragement card would work and she was excited, so I created something special for a young child.

Sheep Fold-it Front
Sheep Fold-it Inside

I wish I had texture laying around my house, like wool felt, old socks, old wash cloths, or anything to provide texture for the sheep would be fun, but I gave up and went with paper. I looked at the die set and added color like in the photo for the front, then chose a greeting from other stamp sets for the inside. I know the child can’t read, but thought this would provide a fun card for the parents. I think the child will hold the card, open and close it and that is about all. It was mailed today. I hope it bring a smile to the little girl’s face and the parents as well.
