Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes/Family Friendly

Hello Delightful Friends!
Here is my card for Word Art Wednesday Challenge. Our Sponsor this week is Studio Katia be sure and check out their BLOG and come away with some great creative inspiration.  They have used some cute dies to make some very fun shaker cards!!  Check it out!!

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

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.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Don't forget to play along and share your creations at Word Art Wednesday the challenge runs for 2 weeks and each week you can link 5 new projects!

God Bless! Please say a prayer for the USA.

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - 3 John 2

Hello Delightful Friends!

Welcome to my blog!  Today is Word Art Wednesday Challenge day!!  My card has an autumn feel to it and I hope you like the design.  Our sponsor for our challenge is Pretty Little Studio ($20) very, very cute vintage diecuts and lots of digital images.  Our challenge is Anything Goes - Family Friendly and lasts for 2 weeks so be sure and share with us and perhaps you'll win the sponsor prize.  You can submit 5 new creations a week! 

I've used minimal items for this card but I love the layered look to it by using the Pink Fresh Stitched Scallop Dies.  The pattern paper is from Prima Marketing, 6x6 pad called Hello Pink Autumn.  The pink card stock was from a scrap so I'm not sure what it's name is.  I used a piece of hemp cording for the accent bow and the base is white Neenah card stock.

Our digital scripture is from 3 John 2. 
You can use this art in your creation if you'd like to and it's a wonderful verse to encourage and bless someone.  Well I appreciate you visiting and pray you'll have a blessed week and that you will prosper as your soul prospers!

Don't forget to visit Word Art Wednesday and see all the beautiful cards and mixed media everyone shares!

His Truth my Shield - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful Friends!
Well I can't believe I am saying this but summer is winding down 😢 here in California you wouldn't know it except the mornings are cooler. It's my favorite time of the year although the smoke in the air is pretty bad and I wake up with ash on my car.
 If you don't mind please pray for California we are having wildfires like nobodies business.  Such devastation.  We are safe so far where we live on the coast but we are surrounded by forests beautiful redwood forests.
On to happier news...
It's that time again for our Word Art Wednesday Challenge!  Our sponsor this week is Stix 2 Anything (giving away an adhesive package).  Who doesn't need adhesive, right?!!!  Thank you Stix 2 Anything!!

Here is my card:

Simple card with a little die cutting,  ink blending and fussy cutting out the bird from the pretty pattern paper.  Easy peasy, clean and simple!
Here are my ingredients:
White Neenah card stock for the base
Wildflower Meadow 6x6 from Craft Consortium 
(pretty paper which is also double-sided) cut to 5.25" x 4"
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die
Cutterbee scissors for fussy cut, Lavender Glaze ink from Taylored Expressions, 
Ink Blending brush (Taylored Expressions)  
I kept the Scripture Art in the rectangle die and then blended the ink to keep a white border.

I picked this paper because of the birds shown, I thought it would work well with the Scripture because it mentions how God shall cover us with His feathers and we can be safe under His wings, of course I believe that is a metaphor!  But I love that HIS TRUTH is my shield and buckler.  A wonderful verse to meditate on, to know the love and protection of our heavenly Father. I am safe in His arms.

God bless and thanks for visiting.
