Radiant Neon Blog Hop with CardMaker

Hello, friends:)
I'm super excited for today's post-- I'm joining in the fun with the Radiant Neon Blog Hop! If you came from Baerbel Born's blog, you are in the right place. ***Be sure to start at the beginning of the hop over on the CardMaker blog!  ***Giveaway details below:) 

I created a super easy card using 4 Radiant Neon Electric pigment inks (Coral, Orange, Pink, Yellow). I also used the NEW Pico Embellisher to create the design in this feather image. This is a very CAS and one-layer card! LOOOOVE! ***These cards were actually cards submitted for the Stamping Royalty challenge. I went with a CAS design this year--- first time submitting in like 2 years! I'm happy with them regardless if they are winners or not:) I'm linking these up to Ashley's Royalty in Waiting post! 
Die cutting technique: Inlaid die cuts
Because I loved this card so much, I created another one! I CASED myself:)

1. Stamp die image onto card.
2. Outline feather and add design using Pico Embellisher.
3. Die cut a mask for feather and apply to card (so that only the feather is showing).
4. Add ink using Sponge Daubers.
5. Peel off mask and complete card with die cut sentiment or stamped sentiment and neon washi tape.

Isn't that card just FABULOUS!?!?!? LOVE it!

I woke up thinking about you and us and this verse comes to my mind: Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

I believe you are holding up your end of things and God's promise says that you will get yours when the time comes.

I love you
