My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Quick and Easy Collage Cards using DCWV "The Heirloom" Stack!

Collage cards are beautiful!  They are a little tricky for me.  I can't seem to combine layers and embellishments too well, so I use lots of examples from collage card artists!  However, I found a quick and easy way to make collage cards...very little layering and embellishments!

DCWV "The Heirloom" 12 x 12 inch Stack!

These pages are designed for scrapbooking, but they make wonderful collage cards!
The images are already layered!
I found this set of Fiskars sentiment clear stamps at Joann's.  They are perfect for the cards!
I will show the page that was used and then the card I created.
Each card measures 5 inch x 7 inch when folded.
All the "layers" are from the top left corner of the paper.
The background paper is from the stack, too!
The sentiment is printed on paper and layered on Vellum.
Musical score!
All papers from the stack!
Border punch by Martha Stewart.
Ribbon from Joann's
Can't remember where I got the plastic heart shape.
Used the top left corner of the sheet.
All paper from the stack.
Butterfly punch and border from Martha Stewart collection.
Oval scallop layer from Spellbinders.
I used this sheet for 2 cards.  I am saving the chandelier!
All papers from the stack.
The Tower is from a sheet of images in the stack.
A sheet (total of 3) of coordinating images is included in the stack.
I used the Tower on the previous card.
All the papers are from the stack.  The "layers" are from the previous page.
"Inspire" is from a sheet of sentiments that is included in the stack.
Twine is used to keep the owl on the page! :0)
A beautiful page for journaling in a scrapbook!
The image makes a collage card!
What a fun page!
I have had the tiny "Scrabble" letters for years!  I knew I would be able to use them one day!
This card is for a "Scrabble" addict!

I created all of these cards in about 2 1/2 hours.
 The fabulous papers from DCWV "The Heirloom" Stack made these cards quick and easy!

This reminds me of a stack I have called "Lost and Found" from MME. I love taking the corners and making cards out of them.
