It's Settled! Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends and family!
I always look forward to Autumn, our weather is actually nicer in Sept. and Oct. than it is in the summer months!  Love the sunny days and the cool morning and evenings!  I've been working on cards for my November classes at Scrapper's Edge, of course they will be Christmas/Winter themed.  I have so many ideas and techniques I'd like to incorporate but I've got to narrow it down!  I'm having a hard time deciding!  I know that one class will be interactive cards using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies, I think they will be so fun and cute!  How could they not it's Lawn Fawn, right?!!

My card I'm sharing is for our Word Art Wednesday Family Friendly Anything Goes Challenge (week 250 and 251).  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp!  A $25 gift card is the prize for one of the participants.  You can submit up to 5 new projects. Pretty cool!

Products used:
Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Circle Die and Roses for You stamp set (leaves and berries);
Darice hemp cording;
 button (stash);
Colored with Zig Clean Brush Markers and background (Peerless watercolors) Berries colored with Distress Marker Candy Apple. Stamped with Distress Ink Bundled Sage.
Paper; Stathmore 140lb cold press watercolor paper and Neenah Desert Storm card stock.

Step 1: Cut watercolor paper 4 x 4
Step 2: With light colored Distress Marker draw a circle using Stitched Die for your template.
Step 3: Using the double leaf stamp, stamp around circle using Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  Fill in with single leaf stamp.
Step 4: Color leaves with Zig Clean Brush Markers (3 different greens used) alternate coloring leaves so that the color doesn't bleed onto the next leaf.
Step 5: Add red berries using small solid berry stamp and use the Candy Apple Distress marker to color stamp.
Step 6: Using the wet-on-wet technique add clean water on the outside of the wreath and drop in blue Peerless watercolor. Dry completely.
Step 7: Add dimensional adhesive to the back and attach to the top folding A2 Desert storm card stock base.
Step 8: Die cut the Scripture Art using the Stitched Circle Die.
Step 8: Add hemp cording, make bow, add button. Adhere the Sentiment piece.

If you would like to use the Scripture Art on your project you most definitely can!  The verse is from Psalm 119:89.  It is a wonderful verse and is such a strong declaration about God's Word.  It's forever and it's settled. I can count on it. You can count on it! You can delight in it because it is truth. God's word brings health to a tormented mind, heals a broken and contrite heart, brings about a joy that the world cannot take away Hebrews 4:12 says it like this, "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edge 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."  He has entrusted it to us who believe that we might bring others to Christ Jesus our Lord.  In this day of uncertainty I can say with assurance that God's word is for ever and it is settled in heaven - we can have faith that is unswerving when we stand on the promises and the covenant of God's Holy Word. To God be all the glory!

Thanks for visiting and have an excellent week!

God's Enduring Kindness - Word Art Wednesday #248 and #249

Hello Delightful Friends and Family,

I have to be quick tonight, I'm a bit under the weather.  Here is this weeks Word Art Wednesday Family Friendly Challenge Blog.

Kept this pretty simple, 2 dies one from Penny Black (Poppy) and the chevron border from Taylored Expressions. I've used water color paper and die cut the poppy then colored it with my Zig Clean Markers.  The Scripture art was printed on Vellum, the sequins  are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here's the free Scripture Art you can download.

Hope you can join us!
Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

Party 'til the Cows Come Home

Hello Delightful Friends and Family,
Here's a cute card I made for a little guy's first birthday.  It's a farm theme so this stamp set from Taylored Expressions (Green Acres) was perfect to mask out a fun "on the farm" scene.

I will be sharing this at Seize the Birthday Challenge blog.

I've masked with Inkadinkadoo Stamp Masking Paper (love it!) and then used my MISTI to position and stamp each item in Memento Jet Black ink.  Then I colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment, clouds (die) and sun are all from different Taylored Expressions stamp and die sets.  The base is Desert Storm Neenah card stock and the one of the clouds was die cut from Vellum.  Inside the card says "Party 'til the cows come home" and I stamped the other "bovine" from the set.  I've not made a card with so many stamps in a scene but I really enjoyed the process and that Stamp Masking Paper was so helpful, I only needed to mask the tractor, cow and haystack,  Once I figured out the placement it was easy peasy!  I've also used Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a blender for the sky and to edge one of the clouds.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!!

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.                                                                            1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)
