He Dwelt Among Us - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends!

Here is my card for this weeks challenge at Word Art Wednesday! You have two weeks to play and you can enter 5 of your creative projects, it can be cards, scrapbook pages, mixed media ,etc as long as it's family friendly!  You choose what you want to share at the WAW challenge blog.  Oh wait, it's 5 times a week.  That's ten crafty projects to share with the community.  You can use the free Scripture Art if you'd like, you can grab it over at WAW.

 This weeks challenge sponsor is Stamp Simply Ribbon Store check out the store and the blog for some excellent inspiration!  I've used the stamp set called Seasonal Wreaths (Spring & Summer), they also have another set of Wreaths called Fall and Winter which I used a couple of challenges ago.  Each set has some great sentiments too.  So I tried to use just the swag stamp on the front of the card to frame out the Scripture Art and then on the inside I used the wreath with the swag and one of the sentiments as you can see below.  I just did the black and white theme, no coloring at all, which was really hard for me.  I love to color!!   But I wanted to do something different.  I first tried to do it on vellum but I kept smearing the ink, I think I would have had better results if I had used a heavier vellum and did the embossing powder/versamark/heat gun.  I love that look.  And the heavier vellum is wonderful to work with.

Thanks so much for taking a look and visiting, love to hear from you in the comments!!
Have a blessed week, please pray for the USA.

And let us not grow weary while doing good, 
for in due season we shall reap if we do not faint.  Galatians 6:9

Word Art Wednesday Challenge and Prize Winners!

Hello Delightful friends!
Happy New Year to you all.  I am so excited to share today.  I've made two cards to share one for our challenge at Word Art Wednesday and another card which also uses our sponsors products.  I am a huge fan of Taylored Expressions products and the blog is filled with lots of wonderful inspiration!!  Wouldn't you love to win this weeks prize at WAW??? Just play along with us at the WAW challenge blog (Anything Goes - Family Friendly).

Here are my cards:

I stamped and stenciled the above card (products listed below) I printed the Scripture Art on lightweight card stock cut it out and then added a white mat behind and popped it up with dimensional tape.

I used the Cutting Plate to diecut this framed out Seasonal Sprig.  Then using the stencils I applied the ink.  Before adhering the frame, I used the blender brushes to add the Sprinkles ink to the background.  I then stamped the "Wishing You Joy" sentiment (one of 5 sentiments in this Seasonal Sprig set).  After adhering the diecut frame I added Nuvo Jewel Drops to the berries.

I've used the following Taylored Expressions Products
The following inks were used (all TE) Poppy Seed, Watermelon, Mulled Wine, Key Lime, Cilantro, Sprinkles.  I've used the Blender Brushes to apply the ink (best investment, ever!)
