Morning by Morning New Mercies I See

Hi, Friends.....

I managed to make another card for the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Week Challenges where we are invited to make cards inspired by the wonderful design team creations.

The designers used Winnie & Walter and Pinkfresh Studio Felicity products, but that wasn't required for us to participate.

I was inspired by two different cards this time.

First is Gayatri's card on this post. I love the white embossing on the vellum. I knew I wanted to do that on my card, too.

Here is Gayatri's beautiful card. --->

The other card that inspired me was one by Kate on this post.  I  absolutely adore the colors she used.

<------Here is Kate's fabulous card.

So, here's my take:

Since I can't bring myself to toss out my scraps, I was tickled to be able to use the partial sun on this card.  The other part was used several weeks ago in this card.  [Hey, it didn't even have to sit in my stash for a year. Maybe I am improving!!  :) ]  

Other supplies used include:
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Sunny Skies die
Verve - New Mercies stamp set
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular

Sparkly Blue Embossing Powder
Lots of DCWV and Core'dinations scraps from my stash

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  It is a lovely day in Idaho and I hope it is in your area, too.

  2. Love this card Janis - we could do with sunshine here right now :( The white stamping on vellum works so well and adds real dimension too.

  4. Wonderful card--I really like this verse.

  5. A lovely card Janis. A girl after my own heart - using half the sun. I love it. A really sweet photo of the cat at the top of your post. Barbxx

  6. Oooh, love this sunny card Janis! Embossing on vellum is officially my new favorite technique, and the white embossing looks especially fresh and pretty. Thumbs up for using up the other half of your die cut sun...I have bits and pieces like that that are years old so I'm really impressed that you made it work so beautifully. You couldn't have found a more perfect sentiment for this card either!

  7. Such a lovely cheery card, hope you join us again, CarolG and the Die Cut Divas.

  8. Great card :) And I would never had known you used scraps! Thanks so much for joining in share the love week at Winnie and Walter.

  9. This is so sweet. I love the embossing on the vellum and the sentiment is great I actually started singing the song which put me in a great frame of mind, I had just come in from a walk and was so thankful for all the blessings in my life and this fit perfectly.
    Thank you for joining my DL.ART Thankful Thursday Anything Goes APRIL Linky Challenge. Have a blessed day
