For today’s cards. I created some winter backgrounds with Alcohol ink on Yupo paper.

I Splattered metallic white water color paint for a snowy look and then with the metallic water color, I created a snow bank for my winter bird to sit on.

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!

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:

Gerda Steiner September Challenge

Today’s card is for this month’s progressive challenge at Gerda Steiner. Her images are so adorable and this little guy is no exception! The image is called – Sweet Tooth Mouse

If you play along each month, you receive the next month’s challenge image for free – they are all so sweet – what’s to lose?! it is a truly win-win challenge!

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.

Thanks for stopping by!


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!
