Mercies – Bible Journaling

Hi Friends!

I’m back with another Bible page from the God is Faithful Retreat. It came out so beautifully and features one of my favorite scripture selections from Lamentations 3:22-26

Because of the mercies of ADONAI we will not be consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning! Great is Your faithfulness. “ADONAI is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.” ADONAI is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him. It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of ADONAI. TLV

Gayle taught this lesson and I just loved using floral scrapbook paper to build this page. It’s a great example of being able to use any of our card/scrapbooking supplies in Bible journaling. I used 3 different Distress Oxides to create a soft stippled background. The paper is from Pink & Main’s Fantastic Florals paper pad. The stamp sets used are Sweet ‘n Sassy Marker Alpha, Simon Says Stamp Spiritual Sentiments and an old Verve Stamps set New Mercies (retired).

We are heading into the weekend. Have a good one!

Blessings!

Gloriously 60 Day 36 Art – Pig Fun

Hi Angels!

When I saw this cute Pig Time set from Pink and Main it just tickled and made me smile. And we can always use a smile

One of the Pink and Main designers used a partially stenciled background on her samples for the set so I decided to case that technique for these cards. I used Pink and Main Daisies & Flora stencils and the pigs are colored with Prismacolors.

There are more piggies in the works. Stay tuned.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Gloriously 60 Day 32 Art – Classic Pink & Black

Hi Angels!

We are certainly feeling the after effects of 2 long driving days but it’s great to be home.

Since I’m dragging just a bit, it was super easy to grab my new order from Pink & Main and create tonight’s card.

Usually when I do a pink & black combo, I grab a vibrant pink. This ballet pink grabbed my eye when I dug into my scraps so I opted for a softer look. I used Pink & Main’s Bold Butterfly Plate A along with Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Birthday to complete this card quickly.

I hope you find some time to create this week while enjoying the beginnings of summer.

Gloriously 60 Day 29 Art – Discover Your Wings

Hi Angels!

Today we are in Riverton Wyoming to visit my husband’s aunt. We decided since we were so close we would add a day to our trip so we could visit, plus see a bit more of the country.

Today’s challenge card was fun to design after seeing something similar on Pinterest.

I pulled an older Taylored Expressions stamp set out called Discover Your Wings for the dragonfly & sentiment. I also used Taylored’s circle masking stencil with Pink & Main’s Flora Stencil for the background. This would look beautiful in several different color combos.

I hope you are having a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Gloriously 60 Day 9 Art – Mother’s Day Teacup

Hi Angels!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I had lots of fun creating Mother’s Day cards for both my daughters & my daughter-in-law. I will share each one over the next couple of days.

Up first is the card I made for my daughter-in-law, April. I love how vibrant this card came out.

The background is done with Pink and Main’s Flora Stencil. It’s not quite long enough for a slimline so I creatively placed the washi tape to disguise the seam line. The teacup & sentiment are from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps In This Together stamp set. It’s heat embossed in silver and watercolored.

I haven’t been too great about family cards for holidays. I usually get birthdays, anniversary & Christmas done but I’m going to work on creating for a few extra holidays.

I hope your Mother’s Day has been blessed with family & friends.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Glorious 60 Day 5 Art – Amazing

Hi Angels!

Running just a bit behind the power curve tonight, was working on another design. I was out assisting with the granddaughters earlier today, the youngest has an ear infection and had to go to the doctor. Some days just take detours & you go with the flow.

I’m working on some slim lines so it was easy to grab a few items to make tonight’s card. I precut bases & layers to grab while creating.

I used a hand colored background with Catherine Pooler Designs new Light Burst Slimline Die and a mixture of sentiments to create this design. It needed just a little something so I reached for Pink & Main’s new Sparkle Gems. They are so pretty and have an iridescent shimmer.

Thanks for popping in!

Hello Beautiful Slimline

Hi Angels!

It has been a busy week as I had some errands to run & was prepping the Cards for the Troops shipment. You can see the details of the shipment on my Facebook page.

After 2 days of dealing with migraines & still taking care of things, I finally made it out to the studio for a few minutes to create. I just love how this card came out.

Isn’t it just gorgeous! I used the new Brutus Monroe Slimline Stencil Victorian Swirl with Catherine Pooler inks. Then I used the new Pink & Main slimline die sets Stitched (layers of stitched rectangles), Beautiful & Sympathy. Another great set of dies that coordinate together.

The Troop cards are always a kindness project plus I gave some encouragement this week too. Sometimes it’s the little bits of kindness that can mean the most.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.
