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…

SNSS Fall Leaves #1

I finally got all my reports done and got a chance to play in ink this weekend and in doing so, I finally got a chance to play along with some of the Falliday Fest Challenges at Splitcoast Stampers. The Challenge today FF17diniA  was to pick a SCS tutorial that starts with the first letter of my first name…My first name is Joshualyn so I chose Joseph’s Coat.

I used the Falling Leaves Clear Stamp Set and the Autumn Collage Set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I created background with distress ink (Spice Marmalade, Candy Apple Red, and Mustard Seed) then embossed the leaves and covered it all with vintage photo.  I embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder.


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!
