SNSS – Go and Share Your Testimony!

I have really been so blessed and quite often take it for granted that I have so much…

I recently had a glorious vacation on an Island Paradise and while I was there, I was blessed to see a baptism in the ocean, in a cove, did I mention it was paradise? The islander who was getting baptized was so happy and standing there in the ocean, she gave her testimony just before she was baptized. It was so awe inspiring and it was just as it should be.

While I was thinking about it, I found Luke 8:39. This man had been saved by Jesus and just wanted to be with Him. But Jesus said:

39 “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.

I have been wanting to use Your Story Digital Stamp to create a bookmark and it just seemed so perfect for my page today. I combined it with Creative Worship: Skinny Lowercase Clear Stamp Set and Skinny Caps Alpha Clear Stamp Set to create my page. I wanted to create a page that was a little different, but this is how it turned out and I am ok with that.

I colored my bookmark with Copics and used Acrylic paint on my page. I used Archival ink with White Gel Pen for the letters.

I hope you are having a blessed week! Thanks from stopping by!

FTHS May Blog Hop – Case It!

Welcome to From the Heart Stamps April blog hop! If you have arrived from KELLY’S BLOG, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps Blog, so you don’t miss anything.

We had so much fun last time we did a CASE it challenge, we decided to do it again…we have been challenged to CASE (copy and share everything) each other!! I have been tasked to CASE a card from my oh so talented teammate – Michelle. I chose to CASE THIS card.

I love the CAS take on this card. I love white space but am so bad with doing it so I decided to go for it and follow Michelle’s card closely.

I hope you like today’s card using Aloha Girl (Faithful Friends)

I used some Washi tape for the stripes (Score one for me – I used some stash!) then I went through my pre-printed images and found this sweet heart really needing to be colored (score two!) THEN I remembered a stamp set with layered shells that I “had to have” but have never used. I though that a shell where Michelle had a heart would be cute, I created the shell and fussy cut it out and popped it up with foam felt (score three – I feel like I won on this one!) I hope you like it!

As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be picked from each blog and on the FTHS blog to win an image of their choice from the FTHS store.

We are also having a link up contest with this hop. We invite you to pick one of the FTHS DT members and “CASE” one of their cards and add it to linky collection, by Sunday May 7th. Everyone who enters will be entered into a random drawing. One lucky winner will win three images of choice from the store!

Recipe for my card:

  • Image: Aloha Girl (Faithful Friends) digis by From the Heart Stamps
  • Shell: Simple Seashells (Papertrey Ink)
  • Paper: White card (Papertry Ink)
  • Ink: Copics (beach) white Gel Pen, B00, B0, B02, B04, E31, E33, E35,(skin) E50, E51, E53, (starfish) E13, E15, E77 (hair) E29, E37, E39, E15, E19 (Flowers) Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19 (suit) BG18, BG53, BG57, YG23, YG25

Now head over to MICHELLE’S BLOG and see what inspiration she has for you.

Have fun hopping and have a wonderful week!!

SNSS Mason Jar Bouquet Water Color

For today’s card, I went simple and let the image speak for itself and did a little watercolor with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The new Mason Jar Bouquet set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps is so beautiful! Don’t you agree?

After I colored my image with the watercolors, I went back and shaded some of the details with my Polychromos Color Pencils. This gives me the opportunity to worry a little less about the shading in the water coloring – and just have fun with it. AND it is fun! I hope you are inspired to try it!

I love it! This image just makes me happy!

FTHS Coffee and Friends

Ooooh! I love my Distress Oxides!

For today’s card, I used Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Vintage Photo oxides. I spritzed water on to it and let it dry. Then I used my original distress inks in vintage photo and pulled out my Tim Holtz Splatter Stencil to create a background for my card. With my Copics, I colored up Friendship (Faithful Friends). She has be printed up in my stash for a while so when I saw her, I thought all of these pieces were meant to be together!

As always, I used my polka dot and basic backdrop dies from AJVD to get my layers. Then I used my stitched circle dies to cut out my image and my base and by inserting the image in, it gave me stitches on both sides. It turned out pretty cute I think! I hope you were inspired!

I am going to enter this one into a couple of Challenges this week:

SNSS Master of the Sea!

This weekend was wet around here so it has been a weekend of Distress inks – so inky, messy, and A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I made a couple of CAS cards with Sweet N Sassy Stamps Master of the Sea Set.

My first card uses Master of the Sea and The Good News Set – to provide sunshine for my little sailboat. I also created some waves with masking and embossing.

My second card uses the Master of the Sea set as well but I played with my Distress Oxides (Broken China) and played along with the Featured Stamper Challenge at SplitcoastStamper. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case for my card. I hope she has a great weekend as the featured stamper!

That is all for now – Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
