Faithfulness



I wanted to play in today's CAS challenge #256 on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is scallops.  That's a great excuse to get out my Spellbinders Borderabilities Curved Two borders...love them!

Two of my curved borders are colored with Heidi Swapp color shine. I bought it Saturday at Michaels and just had to use it today. The colors are coral (my favorite color) and seafoam. I sprayed them after I cut out the borders. I got a bit too much spray and wiped it with a paper towel so it would dry quicker. The seafoam had a glossy effect, as you can see.

My verse is designed by Dina Kowal for Our Daily Bread Designs. It is included in the set, Scripture Collection I. It certainly brings to mind that great hymn, Great is Thy Faithfulness, which I've sung many times with the choirs in which I've been a member.

I'm playing with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge-EMBOSS IT-I sure hope you can see that the scallops are embossed. Look very closely at the white scallops. It shows best there. Sorry it doesn't show better in the photo.

I'm also entering my card at Word Art Wednesday-#115-Anything Goes

Love the card and the inspiration.

I am so loving these S/B curves. I have to find them on sale somewhere!!!You are using them so beautifully on this & your other cards. I'm really liking the seafoam and peach too (my Fla. house had a lot of these colors in the furnishings & I find the combo very soothing & fresh). Your peach had a lot of glimmer too, at least on my monitor. This is a most elegant card and that is a very awesomely inspirational verse too. Wonderful work, Benzi. TFS & inspiring. Hugs

Lee-Anne said...

Quite stunning in its simplicity and design, Brenda! Love the colors and those gorgeous curvy borders!

Cathy said...

I love it Benzi! You honestly make me want to try more CAS!
I like the glossy sea foam! It is cool where you wiped it because it looks like another shade.

Marisa said...

Loving the curved borders and now I'm going to be singing the song to that verse all day :)

Carol L said...

Those curvy dies are so pretty, and I love that they have a shine to them! They make the perfect backdrop for the scripture sentiment! CAS & beautiful!

I don't think I've ever seen that border punch but I really love the curved scallops! I'm already debating if that's going to become a "must have" or if I can resist. :-D

Sassy Raggedy said...

How lovely this is. It reminds me of the crochet doilies my mom and grandmother use to make and they would do the edges in colors like these. Just lovely...Thanks for allowing me a few minutes to think back on wonderful memories...Hugz, joann

Maria said...

You've been a busy stamper creating some gems! I know I've said it before, but you sure can make some spectacular CAS cards! Wish I had half your talent, my friend!
