Luke 2:26-32

26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, 28 he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said,

29 “Lord, now you are letting your servant[e] depart in peace,
    according to your word;
30 for my eyes have seen your salvation
31     that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples,
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
    and for glory to your people Israel.”

Luke 2:7-11

 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.[c]

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

My Friend

Good morning crafty friends!
Time for the debut of these gorgeous baskets and bouquets...don't you just LOVE them!


Material list HERE

Card size:  4 1/2" X 7 3/4"

Cut 1 white eyelet slimline sized 3 1/4" X 7 3/4", Cut 1 blue decorative paper slimline straight edge 2 7/8” X 7 3/8” then cut a gold mat about 1/32”.  Glue these onto a white folded card size 3 X 7 1/2.

Cut 1 each of the Daisy Corners (left and right) from white and from gold then glue these sets together slightly off-set.  Pop these corners onto the slimline card at bottom corners. 

Stamp the tall basket, the Basket Florals and the 2 butterflies using black ink, die cut then color.  Pop the basket up in the center of card then glue the Basket Floral onto the basket. Pop butterflies up onto card, glue a rhinestone onto each head and Stickle the wings.

Stamp the sentiment using Oxide Ink (partly pigment so it stays wet long enough to emboss) onto vellum.  Add clear powder then heat emboss.  Trim vellum closely then glue gold trim onto top and bottom and fishtail ends.  Curl sentiment slightly around a fat round pen.  Glue sentiment to card putting glue on bottom of gold only so that it won’t show.

Use white Nuvo to enhance the baby’s breath also use glitter to glitter flowers.

In My Heart


Material List HERE

Card size:  3 7/8 X 8 1/2"

Cut the outer shape from black decorative paper (Friendship Rose Paper Collection) using the large Slim Eyelet Rectangle die, cut the top with the end of the Curvy Accent Border (Eyelet Edge edge).  Using the Slim Basic Rectangle die to fit, cut a layer of Luxe Silver and foam sheet.  Cut the top with the Curvy Accent Border (plain edge) die to match the top of the Eyelet in curved shape.  Cut a piece of coordinating decorative paper to 3 1/4" X 8” then cut he top with the plain edge Curvy Accent Border to match the curve shape of the other tops.  Glue panels in order on top of a folded slim card size 3 5/8” X 8” (this will insure that none of the white card base shows under the black eyelet layer).

Stamp the sentiment using Vibrant Fuchsia onto white cardstock then cut out using the Decorative Heart die.  Cut a foam sheet the same size then glue it under the sentiment and onto card on top of decorative paper heart (if that paper was chosen).

Stamp the Small Wild Rose onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Vibrant Fuchsia then sponge with Magenta Hue, die cut then sponge edges and backs with Vibrant Fuchsia.  Shape all the blossoms in the 3D shaping Mold then glue 2 of the same size together for each flower (stamp side up), except the bud which is only 1 blossom and stamp side down so that when petals are squeezed together to form the bud, the stamp side will show. Punch a small pointy flower from green to make a sepal for the bud.

Pierce all the open blossoms in the centers then thread the silver pearl stamen through the centers, secure with hot glue then trim the backs of all threads.  Glitter the flowers with Crystal Clear.

Stamp the leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Fern Green then sponge with Leaf Green and a little Magenta Hue.  Die cut then sponge the backs and shape in the mold.  Cut leaf into 2 or 1 leaf sections.  Glaze the tops with 3D Lacquer mixed with shimmer additive (or whatever you have like lacquer).

Arrange leaves and flowers onto card at the bottom left side.  Randomly glitter card using a sponge and Crystal Clear.

Luke 2:10-14

10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”[d]
