Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog - Holy Holy Holy


Hello Delightful Friends,

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge (weeks 527-528) is starting and last for 2 weeks!  Don't forget to play along and leave some love along the way by sharing a kind word!

I was waiting for the winner of the blog hop to get back to me before posting my winner.
Congratulations to Heather Mills from Rhode Island, your prize package is on it's way!!

Today our Sponsor is the STAMPS OF LIFE ($25).  So, you really need to play along with us, don't forget you can share up to  5 new creations per week to be eligible for the prize so head over to Word Art Wednesday!   Stamps of Life have some adorable stamps, dies, videos and tutorials!!

Here is my card and the Scripture art for this challenge (the Scripture art is optional but we love it if you would use it)



Card ingredients:
Base: white 100lb card stock; behind the front panel is a A2 cut pink card stock (Bazzill)
The front panel (cherry pop card stock) was die cut with Stitched with Love cutting plate (Taylored Expressions) 
Scripture heart was cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Die.
Since Valentines Day is right around the corner, I wanted to try out the cutting plate and it cuts like a dream, plus you get all those cute little hearts.  I've got mine in a little container for future use.
I kept my card simple and also flat for mailing.  This style is great if you need a bunch, just change out the sentiments and color of card stock, even the size of the heart can be changed. I made another with pink and toffee card stock that is super sweet.


Thanks for visiting and I pray you will stay close to Jesus, we know it won't be long, when we will see Him face to face!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - The Project Bin



Hello Delightful Friends!
Happy Thanksgiving to the USA!  Remember all the things we can be thankful for. I sure can have a lot to say about that, especially in the times we are living in right now.  But for now I just want to thank and praise the Lord for His faithfulness and redemption.  We certainly live in challenging times but Jesus reminds us to stay focused on Him.  He is our strength, our strong and mighty tower.

This weeks challenge is here for Word Art Wednesday and we have a terrific sponsor in the Project Bin.  Be sure to check out their Black Friday sale!! HERE.  Check it out beforehand there are some awesome sales going on now!!

Here is my card for this weeks challenge (anything goes/family friendly): 

 (Sorry the photo isn't the greatest - the read card stock is not part of the card)

Scripture Art for this weeks challenge from Jeremiah: 


 

Ingredients:

Stamp: Boughs & Berries Background (Taylored Expressions)

Paper: Toffee 100lb c/s (TE); Neenah bright white 80lb c/s

Ink: Lime Zest (TE)  PrismaColor Pencil (red for the berries)

Dies: Stitched Circle Die (Simon Says Stamp)


The Scripture verse is amazing when you meditate on what Jeremiah is saying. I have to ask you:  Is the Word of God a joy and a rejoicing in your heart today?  Can you say that you are called of the Lord? If you are born again you are definitely called by the Lord, even by name.  He knew you when you were in your mother's womb and He knows how many hairs are on your head.  That is pretty amazing.  God's word is so precious and the Bible says it is "living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12) no wonder the enemy of our souls hates it so much.  It's what gives me hope, even when this world is in such a mess, His Word gives me hope and a peace, that no one can take away.  Praise the Lord, that is definitely something to be thankful for.  I am praying right now for anyone who reads this and is struggling.... won't you please call on the name of the Lord Jesus - He is waiting for you to reach out to Him, He wants you to come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  What a Savior!

Thanks for visiting and blessings to you,

Hello!
Hope you all are doing well! We have our Word Art Wednesday Challenge and a wonderful sponsor for this Anything Goes /Family Friendly Challenge : Really Reasonable Ribbon  check out their crafty blog Here So much pretty ribbon and twine, plus tutorials! 

Here is my card with our Scripture Art from Psalm 30:12  I thought it was perfect for November.







Here are the ingredients:
Fall Foliage Background Stamp and Stencil set (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Toffee, Peapod, Granny Smith, Candy Corn, Dijon (all T.E.)
Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah)
Candy Corn Cardstock (T.E.)
Dies: Stitched Leaves (Lawn Fawn)
Deckled Rectangle (Spellbinders)

The same inks that I stenciled with I used on a piece of white card stock and using blender brushes, I customized the leaf colors, and die cut them out.  After diecutting them I used the blender brush to go around the edges of each leaf using the Toffee ink, it's very subtle.

Thanks for visiting and make your way over to the Word Art Wednesday Blog and join the challenge!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Hello Delightful Friends

Brrr, we are definitely in the Fall zone!!  We had our first frost this morning.  I love this time of year, the beautiful colors and the crisp nights but I must admit, I do not like the cold mornings!  Hope you are managing the change of seasons better than I.  I had my jacket on all day long.

Well, it's time for our Word Art Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes - Family Friendly).  Our sponsor this time is Stamp Simply Clear Stamps (thank you Sharon Johnson!).  Check out their new release of Fall and Christmas merchandise!!  And be sure to visit their BLOG Esther Asbury shared a beautiful new card using the gorgeous Dahlias stamp this week.

I've used the O Christmas Tree steel die from the set which has a coordinating stamp set.  I just loved the size and shape of this tree.  I chose not to use the stamp because I didn't want the snow affect, so I blended the ink onto the tree after diecutting 3 trees (to give dimension).  In hindsight I should have placed a moon in the night sky! I may have to go back and do a little bit of addition to this card.  But as you know, I do love simplicity and CAS.
   I decided to do a slimline card with a little ink blending and splattering.  You will find all the ingredients at the end of this post.


Here is this weeks Scripture Art to use if you'd like to incorporate it on your artwork.



Ingredients:
O Christmas Tree Die (Stamp Simply Clear Stamps)
Neenah White card stock (cut tree 3x using die)
Pattern paper (a scrap in my stash)
Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Die
Top Fold Slimline card in Toffee (Taylored Expressions)
TE Inks: Sweet Basil, Cilantro, Salt Water Taffy, Blueberry, Jelly Donut, Sugar Cube (splatters)
I trimmed out the Scripture art and matted it on Desert Storm.

Thanks so much for visiting and I pray that the Lord will give you wisdom, understanding and the peace of God in the midst of this stormy world.  Praying for our nation.

Here is my card to share for this weeks challenge, hope you'll play along.


Ingredients:
Base: Desert Storm Neenah card stock 5.5 x 4.25
I've stenciled the background using the Taylored Expressions Fall & Foliage Stamp and Stencil Combo. (love this set).  
Taylored Expressions Ink: Dijon, Raspberry Sorbet, Mulled Wine, Cilantro, Mushroom.
I've used the TE brushes to stencil.
The checked strip is a scrap from my stash.
This Stamp and Stencil set is really fun.  You start with the large stamp which is just the veins, stems and dots, then the 3 set stencils which are clearly marked so you know to start with #1 and so on.  Super fast and super easy.  I've popped up the sentiment with dimension squares, the Scripture art is a digital which you can use for the challenge if you'd like.  It's free and available at Word Art Wednesday.  I've matted the Scripture (Proverbs 5:21) with the Desert Storm card stock.

God Bless! Please say a prayer for the USA.
