It’s time for another challenge at Little Miss Muffet – Challenge #159 “Anything Goes!”

For my card today, I colored up a springtime image from LMMS called  Polka Dot Pals Ualani. I inked up a background stamp with Versamark and after embossing it with clear powder, I water colored it with some bright distress inks – I thought it looked a little like an Easter Egg. What do you think?Recipe:

There is a Season

I have really been loving my creative time in my Bible lately. While I love inking up a stamp, it is always scary to apply ink to my Bible page so I am doing something different for today’s page. I have been wanting to put the From the Heart Digi Time to Bloom image into my Bible from the moment I saw it and today, here it is…

I printed the image on Strathmore inkjet translucent Vellum – it dries fast and doesn’t smear. I colored it up with my Polychromos pencils. I took my time and had fun with shading and just used it as a coloring project thinking about the verse from Ecclesiastes – 3:1. It reminds us that while there are sad times there are also good times – There is a beginning with every ending.

For everything there is a season,
    a time for every activity under heaven.”

After I colored my image, I cut it to the size of my Bible pages and rounded the corner with a 1/4″ rounder (this matches my Bible pages) I put a strip of 1/8″ inch Score tape on the straight (not rounded) edge and stuck it into my Bible.

I hope today’s page inspired you to try journaling without worry.

I Am Forgiven!

As Easter approaches, I can’t help but think of how blessed and how loved I truly am. It is hard to believe that He loves me so much but there is no greater proof of His love than His sacrifice for me. That I am forgiven is definitely a sign of His love and His grace (meaning that I don’t get what I deserve!).

Today’s journal page is on Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,”

I used a few Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamp sets to create my page today. I created the background with distress inks and filled in some of the images with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.

FTHS – Fun with Embossing Folders

Today I have a couple of quick cards with fun embossed backgrounds. They are Clean and Simple but not “plain” I love CAS but I struggle with White Space (as I have mentioned before) – this technique kills two birds with one stone.

Speaking of birds, my first card is a birthday card using Party Hat Bird Brain. I colored my image up with Copics, fussy cut it, and adhered it to a bday background created – I first used a cupcake folder that I dobbed distress inks on to create color then ran through my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday Folder.

My second card uses Bunny and Butterflies  I Found the embossed background in my stash so I ma not sure which one it is but I love it! I then mounted it and the image on black for a bold outline. 

That is all I have today – quick and easy but adorable. Now you give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your were inspired!

SNSS Peaceful Peonies

Today I have a card using the Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.

I have been in awe of images white embossed on kraft so I decided to try it. I colored it up with my polychromos colored pencils. I didn’t add a lot of frills but then I thought it needed something so I added a print stamp over a mask to add a little background movement. I really love it for its beauty and simplicity.I really love it for its beauty and simplicity.

SNSS Lord Help Me Grow!

I have had today’s main image colored up for a while. I have actually colored it twice because I fell in love with the first one and just couldn’t cut it as was the original plan.img_7541

When I colored it the second time, I felt it was no longer meant for the verse I had been praying over. The more I looked at it, the more I felt that the image and the sentiment was too big for one verse – it was meant for all my verses. The prayer to help me grow according to God’s Word really spoke to me, I mean this is one of the main reasons I Bible journal. I want to spend time in the Word and I want to grow in It.

Soooo I decided to put it in the front of my Bible to remind me EVERY time I open my Bible that this is no simple book, but the Word of God, and that the time I spend in it, is my time to grow closer to Him and to praise Him in doing so.snss-your-word

My final page ended up using one main stamp and pieces from a couple of others:

LMMS – Is it Spring Yet?

WOW! It has been so beautiful here the last couple of days! Spring is in the air here and flowers are blooming – it is soooo pretty! I had to pull out a fun Spring image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps called Spring Boot.

spring-boot-1

This image made me happy. I didn’t go too crazy with the card but I did pull out some of my million yards of ribbon … so that is down by 6 inches so YAY!

I hope the weather is turning sunny for you too!

Thanks for stopping by!
