Faith Art Day 5 – Vintage Faithdex

Hi Angels!

Sometimes poking in your supplies leads to wonderful works of art. I had no concrete ideas for either last night’s Faithdex nor tonight’s, but both came out beautifully.

If you know me well, I rarely work in a vintage style, but it’s always good to step outside of the box when creating.

Do not let your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. John 14:1 TLV

I again dug into my scraps to create this card & some ephemera cut outs I received as a gift with an order.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Faith Art Day 4 – Floral Faithdex

Hi Angels!

I sorted out some of my Bible journaling supplies today to make it easier to find items as I work on my challenge.

Today’s share is a Faithdex card with more pretty flowers. This verse seemed very appropriate for this card.

I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty and Your wonders. Psalm 145:5 TLV

With all the blooming beauty of spring, it’s easy to see God’s majesty & wonder in creation.

The bonus to this Faithdex card is that it’s also a Scrap Attack card. Everything was created with my scraps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Faith Art Day 3 – Emerald & Butterflies Journal Prompt

Hi Angels!

Today’s creation is from this week’s Creative Worship Bible Journaling group’s Journal Prompt – the color emerald and butterflies.

The original presentation was from Psalm 105 but I had already journaled that page so I moved next door to Psalm 106.

Halleluyah! Praise ADONAI, for He is good, for His lovingkindness endures forever. Psalm 106:1 TLV

I used a Simple Stories stencil and some butterflies cut from washi paper. Simple & beautiful.

Faith Art Day 2 – Blessing Trellis Cards

Hi Angels!

Our anniversary and my birthday are 4 days apart and this year we will celebrate our 45th anniversary with a big 2 week trip. I will take blessing cards with me to share along the way.

We are called to be the light wherever we go. Blessing cards are a small way of sharing love, kindness & encouragement.

These Trellis cards will be thank-you cards for our Airbnb stays. I will need to create one more as we will stay in 3 total on our trip. I will place a personal thank-you and Bible verse inside each card.

Fun and easy to make the flowers, butterflies & sentiments have a 2 color Distress Oxide blend on them. I used Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina, Kitsch Flamingo & Dried Marigold for blending. I did one card in trellis style & the other in picket fence style.

Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Challenge – Faith Art Day 1

Hi Angels!

It’s May & my birthday month. It’s been awhile since I did a birthday challenge so I decided on a 70 day Faith Art challenge from now until July 9th. My Faith Art challenge will include Bible Journaling, Blessings cards, Faithdex cards, Scripture writing and perhaps a mini album or faith “junk” journal. Quite a variety to choose from.

For day 1 I chose to create in my Creative Retreat Kits Journal from the Come Boldly devotional on John 1:1-14 focusing on verses 1-5

In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made through Him, and apart from Him nothing was made that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it. John 1:1-5 TLV

I used watercolor and Distress Oxides, sequins, a washi sticker and hand lettering to complete this page. A simple depiction of light, the edge of darkness and a young woman reading the word, staying steeped in truth.

I hope you’ll find some creative inspiration during this challenge.

Have a blessed week!

Butterfly Blessings

Hi Angels!

I started this challenge card on Thursday when it was posted before we attended Riverdance’s 25th Anniversary show. Finished it on Friday & then ended up with no internet because while laying our new fiber line, they chopped through our existing cable line. Add in a couple of migraines & I think I’m stuck with off & on posting for awhile.

Thursday’s challenge was 2 colors, I chose my favorite combo of purple & green but decided while splattering to add in some gold. For challenges like this, I just start poking through my supplies & playing to come up with a design. It’s actually fun & inspiring.

I had finally picked up a couple of the Lavinia Sticker Stencil sets but hadn’t had a chance to play with them. I used both the positive & negative butterfly to create this card. Partially inspired by Riverdance, I pulled out my Judikins background stamp of the Book of Kells & stamped it into the butterfly center after inking & splattering. The diecut butterflies feature alcohol ink & I opted for a diecut sentiment.

Hopefully I can catch up on Friday’s & yesterday’s challenges tomorrow.

Thanks for popping by.

Sweet Tweets

Hi Angels!

I hope your Easter weekend has been full of blessings!

Mine was a bit busy including some time without internet service. Long story. So glad it’s been restored so I can post again.

I enjoyed creating these Easter cards for our granddaughters using Simon Says Stamp Sweet Tweets Easter kit.

I love the images in this stamp set and decided to follow one of the designers samples and add the honeycomb eggs to the middle of the cards for a pop-up feature. The images were colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Have a fabulous week!

Whisper Fragile Truth

Hi Angels!

It’s been a minute. Allergies are still trying to win the war here. I have been doing some creating but can’t share just yet.

Eileen Godwin issued a challenge this morning on her group & I love a good challenge & it was just the inspiration I needed after a long day of errands to grab some supplies & create. The challenge was very basic – start with a stencil then add in a stamp or two.

I only have a handful of Lavinia stencils & I picked out Feather Leaf and grabbed some blending brushes that still had ink on them from another project to blend the background. I stamped Mooch in Versafine Clair, the neat part is because I used Distress Oxides, you can see the stencil pattern under the black ink. I decided the Fairy Orb needed color too & blended 3 different colors onto the stamp. The sentiment is an old Post Modern design stamp from my stash that is probably around 15 years old now.

It was so much fun just to grab a couple things, play & design as I went.

I hope you are having a great week!

Hello Spring

Hi Angels!

I had so much fun designing these cards for our granddaughters and I love sending them Happy Mail.

I used Unity Stamp Co’s Spring Mouse for the focal image & colored with Prismacolors and stenciled with My Favorite Things raindrops with glitter paste. The background paper is Lawn Fawn’s Flower Market. The flowers were created with Taylored Expressions Buds & Blossoms dies that we received in our Crop & Create event kit and the sentiment if from Catherine Pooler Designs. Nothing like combining all the companies to create a card.

Thanks for stopping by.
