SNSS – Splitcoast Featured Stamper

Today I am playing along with the Featured Stamper Stamper. Congratulations Karen!! Her gallery is wonderful, but I settled on THIS card to CASE. I hope she likes it!

I used one of the new stamp sets from Sweet N Sassy Stamps called Whimsy Bouquet and water colored with Distress Inks (Abandoned Coral and Peel Paint) Then I used Floral Greetings for my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Source of Hope

Romans 15:13  “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit”.

I read this verse today and it just made me so happy. The idea of letting go is scary and hard, but the picture of myself filled with JOY and PEACE and overflowing with HOPE is just so awesome!

I have lots of decisions I need to make this year and am praying for answers and this verse reminds me that everything is going to be exactly how it is supposed to be and I will be OK with whatever happens…(How can I not be at PEACE :))

Today I used Sweet N Sassy Stamps sets Through the Trees and Choose Faith and Scenes Silhouette Wetlands (Note: To create Peace, I used the last part of both Hope and Grace and it looks perfect!)

To set up the page, first I created a mask out of the bunch of flowers then stamped them across the border. I did a wash of watercolor for the sky and ground using distress inks, then I used colored pencils to color it. I “wrapped it up by drawing a doodled box around the whole thing. 

I think my page today reflects this verse in a happy colorful way. I hope you like it and were inspired!

Hello – My Name is…

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a wonderful 2017 and are ready for an even better 2018!

Today’s CAS card uses the new SNSS clear stamp set Creative Worship: Hello My Name Is. I used the name tag in rainbow colors to create my background then went bold and black for the main tag. When it came to choosing the sentiment (name), It was sooo hard! There are so many wonderful choices and they are such powerful reminders of who we are!

Examples include: CHILD of the one true king, 100% FORGIVEN, CHOSEN no matter what, among others. I settled on LOVED beyond measure as it just made me happy. More will have to come soon for sure! Which would you choose first? 

I hope you are inspired! Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS In the Morning…

Psalm 143:8

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
    for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
    for to you I lift up my soul.

What better way to start the day than knowing of God’s love for me. In trusting Him, I I better walk the walk He wants me to. It is when I try to do it on my own that things become more confusing. As a new year approaches, I resolve to work harder on trusting in the Lord and starting each day anew in His love.

For today’s journal page, I have combined a couple of digital images from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I printed them onto vellum (Strathmore printer Vellum) and colored my page with Polychromos pencils (pencils work great on vellum!). Then I inserted it into my new small pocket Bible – this is a fun little Bible that I can’t wait to play with a little more.

I don’t play with SNSS digis very often but there are a lot of cute ones in the store. The links to the ones I used are: In the Morning Digital Stamp and Butterfly & Flower Digital Stamp

I hope you were inspired today and I wish you a Happy and Blessed New Year!

SNSS Wise Men Still Seek Him

Matthew 2:7:12

7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you have found him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.

These Magi, knowing of the prophecy of the Messiah, followed the star. They found him, worshiped him (as one would God), and gifted him treasures (fit for a King). These very wise, important men knew how special this baby was! How could someone like you or I fail to do so?

This time of year is often very stressful and hectic. We are trying to get the perfect gifts for those on our list and often we forget that this is His birthday, His day to be celebrated. So this year, when you are out shopping and fighting the crowds, take a breath and remember what the season is about the remember that no matter what you choose, the greatest gift was already given with the birth of Jesus and to this day… “Wise Men Still Seek Him!”

After I created a clean and simple Christmas card using the We Three Kings Clear Stamp Set, my friend insisted she wanted it for her Bible.

I tried a couple of things and finally got the formula right. I used vellum and distress inks for the background and archival ink for the silhouette and created an insert for my Bible.

The thing I love about this vellum page and silhouette stamps is that the beauty is on both sides of the page.

I hope you have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!Thanks for stopping by,
