SNSS – Under His Wings…

For my Bible journal page today, I am still in the book of Psalms –

Psalm 91:4

“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge…”

I love the image this brings to my mind. I think about a movie or a book when danger occurs and the protector throws themselves over the innocent to keep them safe. While life doesn’t often bring explosions and such, we do have upsets and disappointments and knowing that when we are in need of protection, God will tuck us under His wings and keep us safe, is so comforting to me. It is such a blessing going into each day with this picture in my mind.

For this page, I used Sweet N Sassy Stamp Set – Creative Worship: His Wings. I also used a few Alphabet Sets Chunky Alpha, Skinny Caps Alpha, and Skinny Lowercase Sets.

I stamped the feathers onto the page with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then used distress inks (Rusty Hinge, Antique Linen, and Vintage Photo) for a water color wash. I Inked up the words with Archival Jet Black Ink.

I hope you are inspired and that your day is a blessed one! Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS – Christmas Cards using color pencil on Kraft

I don’t about you, but often find myself making one of a kind cards and later on wishing I had a duplicate (so I didn’t feel like I needed to hoard it 🙂 ) After getting Sweet N Sassy Stamp’s new Christmas Blocks, (which are absolutely adorable by the way), I thought – why not use my MISTI and try to create several cards in one(ish) sitting.

I have been traveling a lot so I stamped them up and then took the images and my colored pencils on the road. There is just something so awesome about colored pencils on kraft paper… don’t you think.

Here they are!

I decided to check out a couple of sentiments before I came up with one I felt was good with all of the images from the Christmas Pine Set.

When I finished, I had 8 cards – Woohoo! I almost felt ready to address some envelopes from my Christmas list. But alas it has to be a little cooler for me to feel right about doing so.

Here they are upclose:

The snowman – The first sentiment I tried was the smaller Merry Christmas from Born this Day and then I settled on the bigger one.

Here are the Santas – one sentiment From Christmas Pine and one from The Christmas Blocks set. 

The reindeer – For this one, I actually tried pencils (left) and Copics (right) just to see how different the looked on the kraft – the Copics turned out great for this one because the shading was so much easier for some reason. In real life the pencils have a little more shading and look pretty good too. Here is the Elf – isn’t he cute!Bonus: While I was inking up images, I stamped one of the trees from the Christmas Topiaries too. I haven’t decided if I am going to do a sentiment but I like it so far…I am going to enter these into the following challenges:

GS Get Well copy

I used some washi tape and the embossing folder sitting on my desk 🙂 and colored my image with Copics. I went CAS with it – since it looked like he was eating soup, I decided to make it a get well card.

SNSS Peace on Earth!

Today I have a Bible Journal page using the new “Peace on Earth” set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I hope to do a matching page on the other side with some of the other images in the set.

It is hard to believe it is time to do a Christmas page but it is just around the corner and what better way to prepare for it than to remember the reason we celebrate. And in the craziness that is the world today, what better reminder that Peace on Earth will be granted to those with whom God is pleased. What a gift of Hope to those who believe in and strive to please God.My page uses Distress Oxides for the background and the earth and adds some touches of Distress inks. I splashed on a little pearlized water color to create a look of stars. Note: I didn’t prep my page and found out the hard way that while distress oxides don’t really bleed through…distress inks do. That’s OK – I love this page and the backside is a challenge for another day… right?

I hope you were inspired. Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS Christmas Tags

It is still warm, but fall is definitely peeking in and if I don’t get started with Christmas projects now, the next thing you know, it will be here and I won’t have time….SOOOO today’s project, using one of the adorable new sets at Sweet N’ Sassy Stamps called Christmas Blocks Clear Stamp Set, is some fun Christmas tags. I had this huge box of tags in my stash (I’m not sure how long I’ve had them but I’m I thought I NEEDED them at the time and this is the first time I have used them, but they were perfect so I am glad I had them :).

Some ink smooshing, embossed images, and colored pencils, and voila! I hope this inspires you. It is fun and easy to create as many as you need in a sitting. I did the inking on a bunch of them, then the stamping and embossing then brought out the colored pencils, and finally I added the twine and I had a handful ready to go! Is it crazy that now I just want to get a Christmas present to wrap??

Here is a close up of the cute Santa!
Now it is your turn! I can’t wait to see what you do!

SNSS The King of Glory!

My page today is In Psalms – the 24th. It talks about the awesomeness of God – He is the King of Glory! – The statement itself is powerful – right?

For today’s Bible Journaling, I revisited Sweet N Sassy Stamp Set – Creative Worship: Child of the King. This set is so wonderful. It is simple yet powerful.

I stamped the image directly onto the page and used color pencils it color it. To keep it simple, I didn’t use any background inks… The “King” stamp actually says “Child of the King” so I masked off all but “King” for my page.

I hope your day is a blessed one! Thanks for stopping by!
