SNSS Lord Help Me Grow!

I have had today’s main image colored up for a while. I have actually colored it twice because I fell in love with the first one and just couldn’t cut it as was the original plan.img_7541

When I colored it the second time, I felt it was no longer meant for the verse I had been praying over. The more I looked at it, the more I felt that the image and the sentiment was too big for one verse – it was meant for all my verses. The prayer to help me grow according to God’s Word really spoke to me, I mean this is one of the main reasons I Bible journal. I want to spend time in the Word and I want to grow in It.

Soooo I decided to put it in the front of my Bible to remind me EVERY time I open my Bible that this is no simple book, but the Word of God, and that the time I spend in it, is my time to grow closer to Him and to praise Him in doing so.snss-your-word

My final page ended up using one main stamp and pieces from a couple of others:

LMMS – Is it Spring Yet?

WOW! It has been so beautiful here the last couple of days! Spring is in the air here and flowers are blooming – it is soooo pretty! I had to pull out a fun Spring image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps called Spring Boot.

This image made me happy. I didn’t go too crazy with the card but I did pull out some of my million yards of ribbon … so that is down by 6 inches so YAY!

I hope the weather is turning sunny for you too!

FTHS A Hug Says It ALL!

For some quick mid-week inspiration. I used some colorful polkadot digi paper and created a sentiment image strip using  on of Faith’s “Faithful Friends” images – Hold Tight Hugs. A hug does say enough. There is nothing like the feeling when someone give you genuine hug!

SNSS – Sending Prayers!

For my card today, I created a sympathy card. This isn’t always a fun card to make but it is nice to have when you need one. Today I used another of the new February images from Sweet N Sassy Stamps Floral Greetings,

These images are so beautiful and the sentiments are so perfect for a variety of occasions that I decided to go with one of my favorite layouts from Splitcoast Stampers – Faux Blocking – It lets you have fun just with the coloring and the results are awesome!!snss-floral-greeting-1I hope you were inspired today!

FTHS Birthday Wishes!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I have been stocking up on birthday cards lately as I have a lot coming in March. Now I am prepared…if only I can get them in the mail on time (sigh)

Today I have a little midweek inspiration for From the Heart Stamps. It is CAS, but it has some texture, and I think it would be appropriate for almost anyone- what do you think? My card uses Five Party Birds. It is a pretty great image (I mean, what is cuter than a FTHS bird? FIVE!)fths-bday-birds-copy

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Today I have a couple of projects today using one of the new SNSS February sets – Creative Worship: Words of Life- Actions

First I have a couple of cards. I used some distress inks to create a ombre backgrounds then stamped a sentiment by combining words. I used Creative Worship: Good Shepherd to fill in the blanks. They are simple but effective I think. Sometimes less is more  Do you agree?actions-copy

My next project is a Bible journal page for Matthew 5:16  “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

A wonderful reminder that actions speak louder than words! I used the Creative Worship: Outline Alpha set to create a title. This new set was a lot of fun to play with. I didn’t create a glamorous page I just had fun.snss-words-of-life-action-copy

LMMS – Be Unique

Badge for Sidebar

Have you ever had an image that was outside the norm but that you just loved it?? For today’s’ card I used just such an image and it has a pretty neat back story. It was actually designed by Barbara’s (the owner of LMMS) daughter – the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree huh? She is called Polka Dot Pals Futura.

lmms-pdp-futura-2

I had a fun sentiment from an old AllyWay Stamps set that I thought was made especially for her. I used a new background stamp from My Favorite Things called Wavy Coloring Book. I first thought I would watercolor but then it showdowed a bit when I put it to the paper and I decided it was kind of perfect in black and white. I love happy accidents!

I had recently seen a little girl with a pink strip of hair and I though “Why Not!” so Furtura got a pink strip of hair and a rainbow unicorn horn (it has Spectrum Noir glitter pen on it and it is sparkly!) By the time I finished her and she was already so unique, I wondered why I could have pink sky…NO reason, so I did it 🙂

I hope you find time to play with her because she is pretty fun to color!

Recipe:

  • Images: Polka Dot Pals Futura Digi from Little Miss Muffet Stamps
  • Background Stamp: My Favorite Things rubber stamp – Wavy Coloring Book
  • Sentiment: Jibber Jabber clear set from The Allyway Stamps (no longer in business)
  • Paper: White, cardstock(PTI), Black(Recollections)
  • Ink: Copics; Her Arts White (called Unicorn haha) ink and Ranger White Embossing Powder for sentiment
  • Other: Polkadot and basic backdrop dies (AJVD), Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen

Come on over and join in on Challenge #156 – Anything Goes!  There is still time and there are prizes… For our prizes, one lucky winner will be awarded a $10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop.

In December and January when I was traveling so much, I colored up a lot of birthday images – I was convinced I was going to so organized with birthday cards this year – hahaha! I am now pulling out my colored images and making cards. Today’s card uses Birdie and Balloon by From the Heart Stamps. I had to find papers to match my colors and as I have been want to do lately, I reached for my digi files and found and awesome matching paper. I truly love it! Do you ever use digi paper? What do you think about it?

SNSS Valentine Background!

I have a fun background today (haha, I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately – YAY Me!!) – I have been wanting to do a background collage of images. For this technique, I went with digis. The beauty of a digi is that you can change their size, in the case of this card, move them around on the paper as many times as you want before committing to the layout, and even flipping the image if you want. Pretty convenient for this project!

My digis are from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and include: Valentine Birdie Digital StampValentine Kitty, Valentine Bunny with Sentiment Digital StampValentine Teddy with Sentiment Digital Stamp and the sentiment is from the You & Me Clear Stamp Set (Not a digi because white embossing and digis – not so much…)snss-valentines-copy

It turned out sweet right? Now it is your turn – create a simple card with an image filled background. This works with clear/rubber stamps too! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!
