More New Creations

I spent the day working on a few things I've had on the back burner. I joined a Rolodex scripture swap a while back and I've never made my cards. They are due by the end of the month. I finally bought the Rolodex (and thus the cards to make my swaps) last week. Making them was a little easier than I thought it would be. I ended up making my swaps (6+1 for the hostess + 1 for my mother + 1 for me) plus an extra card (one for me, one for my mother, one for the hostess) that wasn't truly a scripture, but I really liked the verse. I also made another card from a new spring catalog hostess set.
God writes the Gospel

I made this card for my own file. I thought it was a beautiful sentiment and could be used as a divider card within my file.
Paper: whisper white
Ink: close to cocoa, old olive, ballet blue, regal rose
Stamps: Friend to Friend, Season of Friendship
Accessories: dimensionals, regal rose grosgrain ribbon
1 Corinthians 13:13
I've always loved this set and could never bear to get rid of it when it retired. I am definitely not a soft (and/or) subtle person, but these colors jumped out at me when I started visualizing this card.
Paper: whisper white, bashful blue, pretty in pink
Inks: bashful blue, certainly celery, pretty in pink, almost amethyst, basic black
Stamps: Peace and Love, So Very
Accessories: tab punch, stamp-a-ma-jig, scallop punch
Rustic Rooster
I fell in love with this guy when I first saw him. I tried not to get him, but I couldn't resist. I don't even particulary care for roosters, but this one is French. Must have been his accent I fell for!
Paper, ruby red, chocolate chip, so saffron, very vanilla
Inks: really rust, chocolate chip (stamped off once)
Stamps: Rustic Rooster
Accessories: 1" circle punch, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, pastels, distressing kit

I really like the tree set used for the rolodex card. Such a nice idea to make something like this. That rooster is a great image.
