Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes/Family Friendly

Hello Delightful Friends!

Welcome Autumn!  My favorite time of the year.  I'm sharing a new Autumn card for our Word Art Wednesday Challenge.  It's an Anything Goes / Family Friendly challenge that runs for two weeks.
Our sponsor this time is Heartfelt Creations, art from the heart!  Share with us at Word Art Wednesday and be in the drawing for the sponsors prize.  You can link up 5 new crafty creations each week that the challenge runs!

Here is my card:

I've used a stencil set from Taylored Expressions Quad Stencil Club.  It's the last one for the club, which has been discontinued.  I've used quite a few ink colors and I'll do my best to remember them, I accidently deleted my photo of all the colors.  Here goes: Pineapple, Honey, Sweet Potatoe Pie, Cinnamon, Avocado, & Sweet Basil.  
The green card stock is Sweet Basil. The white card stock is Sugar Cube.  
All the colors are TE.
I've also used the blender brushes.

Here is the Scripture Art for the week:

Hope that you know that Jesus is our hope and the anchor of our soul! 

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Fully Persuaded!

Hello Delightful Friends!

It time for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes-Family Friendly!  Our sponsor this week is Pink & Main ($20).  Check out their blog and store and get inspired!!

I kept my card very simple with the Scripture Art being the focal point.  A great verse to memorize from Romans 8.Such a powerful verse to get down in your heart and be fully persuaded that nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus Christ. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free!

Kite die is called Let's go fly a kite (Taylored Expressions)
Designer Paper: Doodlebug Designs Fairy Garden
Card stock :  Mango, Blue Raspberry, Blueberry and Sugar Cube.
Stitched Edge Die (not sure who makes this one and I'll have to wait until I go to work and see what it is because I left it there with my other crafty stuff.) I'll have to update this if I remember 💚

Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll play along with us, so be sure and check out the Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog.  We have a new challenge and sponsor every 2 weeks!

Word Art Wednesday - Praise His Name Forever and Ever

Hello Delightful Friends!
Hope you are enjoying a blessed summer day!  It's time for our bi-weekly challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  Don't forget the theme is Anything Goes - Family Friendly.  I have chosen the stamp set called Have a Cup on Us (Stamp Simply). I actually bought the bundle which includes the coordinating die set.  I thought I might use one of the dies, but I changed my mind because the focus is the Scripture Art from Psalm 145. 
 I did a tone on tone stamping technique using Toffee ink, the darker stamped images, I double stamped and then used Versamark and clear embossing powder to give a little more texture.  This is a fun stamp set by Stamp Simply who happens to be our sponsor this challenge! 
 I did a blending ink technique around the Scripture that was cut out by a Stitched Rectangle Die (Lawn Fawn), I used blending brushes (Taylored Expressions).  For a pop of color I added a red small polka dot paper to border the Toffee Card Stock (Taylored Expressions). I like being able to use all or most of the stamps in a set to create a background. I used dimensional tape to pop up the Scripture.  

I've used this stamp set in two other posts so if you are looking for "coffee card" ideas check out HERE and HERE.

Scripture Art can be used in the challenge if you'd like and it's free to upload!

Thanks so much for visiting!!

Image stamped with Earl Grey ink (TE)
Card Stock: Banana Cream. Fruit Punch, Sugar Cube

Word Art Wednesday featuring Sponsor Altenew

Hello Delightful friends!

Happy first day of Summer!!  Word Art Wednesday challenge starts today with our Anything Goes - Family Friendly theme.  Our sponsor is the lovely Altenew!  Hope you'll visit their blog for some wonderful crafty inspiration.  If you share with us new Anything Goes projects at Word Art Wednesday you can have an opportunity to win the prize!  I've chosen the Mini Magnolia Stamp from Altenew and I've used a few different techniques to make this card.  One of course is the monochromatic theme I've used.  Another technique is the no line coloring which is achieved by stamping lightly with ink (light ink plus stamp off for a lighter impression.) I colored with Prismacolor Pencils (list of colors and other "ingredients" at the end of this post.) I've used that same stamp to make  this pretty magnolia background.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Mini White Spendor Anemone which I stamped with the Altenew Crisp Ink - Permanent Black.

Here is the Scripture Art this week:

Here are the other ingredients used:

Dies: Pink Fresh Studios Stitched Scallop Rectangle
Stamp Simply Fishtail Sentiment Banner

Taylored Expressions Ink and Paper : Rose Water

Prismacolor Pencils: 938, 1065, 909, 1028, 908, 1092
Blending stump and mineral spirits
Scotch 3M double-sided foam dimensional tape.

Thanks for visiting!! Have a blessed week.
