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,

LMMS Christmas Scenes

This week’s new releases at Little Miss Muffet are so sweet! I decided to create simple cards and pull out my polychromos pencils and try to create scenes with two of the “scene” cards. Haha – I tried to create a “tree” background for the ornaments and I may need to practice a little more but overall I love them !

I used: Oma’s Ornaments and Lamb and Star. My sentiments came from Papertrey Ink (Ways to say: Merry Christmas). My mom saw the lamb and said :I wish that was my Christmas cards (like to send). I laughed and said “It can be your Christmas card” (like to receive) Color pencils takes too long to create that many 🙂

I hope you are inspired to create something simple – try a different ink than normal and have fun!!

I decided to make a birthday card for my last post this month and the bright fun colors, and cute image is soooo adorable!

What a great month! NOW, next month will be about another, even bigger birthday. I can’t wait!

SNSS – Block Technique

I had so much fun playing along with the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge (congratulations Helen!). I chose THIS CARD to CASE. This card used the block technique and I thought it went perfectly with the new mini sets at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I used Distress Inks to create my multi-colored blocks. I had to make a set because it was soooo much fun!

SNSS God Showed Up!

Daniel 3: 17-25

17“If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. 18“But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”…19Then Nebuchadnezzar was filled with wrath, and his facial expression was altered toward Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego. He answered by giving orders to heat the furnace seven times more than it was usually heated. 24Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astounded and stood up in haste; he said to his high officials, “Was it not three men we cast bound into the midst of the fire?” They replied to the king, “Certainly, O king.”25He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”…

Oh to have faith like Shadrach, Meshack, and Abegnego … to literally walk into a burning furnace and know that God will deliver me and even if He doesn’t, my faith will not waiver as I know that He has bigger, better plans for me and He will be with me as I walk through the fire.

My Bible journal today is to remind me of this…I went simple and created a bookmark using the Sweet N Sassy Exclamations Set and the image proclaiming “God Showed Up!”What a great feeling and a huge blessing!Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!

SNSS Choose Faith!

WOW! What a Birthday month this has been at Sweet N Sassy Stamps – amiright? There is so much going on from flash sales to free printables and a free stamp with purchase… Check out the details HERE

Today I went through my stash of backgrounds – you know the ones. You see a fun techniques so you try it but then never do anything with it? PLEASE tell me I am not the only one who does this?? Anyway…I decided to make a set of cards with them. I came up with a layout so they would be similar since the backgrounds would make them so different. I used Sweet N Sassy’s Choose Faith Clear Stamp Set for my focal point/sentiments.

I love some of them and I like some of them but overall I am happy with all of them!

Here they are up close…

Faith (I used distress inks drizzled down watercolor paper for this background).

Hope (I used a stencil and Distress Oxide – Iced Spruce on Bristol paper for this background).

Grace (I used distress inks and Wink of Stella on Glossy Card stock  TECHNIQUE from SCS then pounced the Grace stamp on it with versamark for this background).

Joy (I used Neocolor II water color crayons and a water brush on Bristol paper in this background).OK, now I challenge you to pull out you background pieces and just have fun!! I hope you are inspired!

THanks for stopping by!

LMMS – You are Loved Claribella!

The Sentiment: One Day at a Time from Reverse Confetti Badge for Sidebar

For my card today, I went with a distress ink rainbow-colored smooshed background and the LMMS mascot – Claribella (Sitting) and a sentiment from Reverse Confetti  – One Day at a Time.

My mom is a rug hooker and knitter and loves sheep so this one is for her!! I colored the image with Copic markers, fussy cut it, and popped it up with fun foam. A few sequins finishes this one off…
