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.

Sailing Into The Sunset

Hi Friends!

There are cards I pour a lot of heart into when I am creating them. I created this beautiful sympathy card for my son-in-law & youngest daughter on the loss of his sister from this life way too soon. The sudden & unexpected loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult to deal with. Please hold the family in your prayers.

I used Simon Says Stamp Your Light, Stampscapes Water Pattern and an old FSJ stamp set to create this card with ink blending.

Hold your loved ones close everyday and remind them you love them. Life can be unexpectedly short.

Bear Hugs

Hi Friends!

It was my usual cleaning Monday, although I did sneak out afterwards for a quick pedicure and then settled in to create. I also took a few minutes to add an extra gift for some of my favorite rescues for the #bettywhitechallenge in honor of her wonderful life.

Today’s sweet encouragement card is sure to brighten up someone’s recovery time.

I used Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Bear Hugs set and colored with Prismacolors. The tiny hearts are from Catherine Pooler Designs Hello Amazing set I used a couple of days ago. I forget how difficult it is sometimes to stamp such tiny stamps but they just add the little extra touch. This card would be really easy to make multiples of.

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start.

With Love & Care

Hi Friends!

While I didn’t get as much done as I’d like in the studio this weekend, I certainly enjoyed some stress-free creating and a little tidying up.

I am continuing with my encouragement series with tonight’s card. The series will continue throughout the year.

I opted for a twist on a traditional black silhouette stamp by using an ombre stamp pad for the flower image on a soft blended background. I pulled Gina K. Designs Little Garden Silhouettes and Caring Flowers stamp sets to create with. The Little Garden Silhouettes set was included in my December SCT Sampler. Often the sampler items are exclusive to that month.

I hope your week ahead is filled with kindness & care both for yourself & those around you.

Love & Good Deeds

Hi Friends!

Yesterday’s weather front brought more migraine issues but I got my refrigerator cleaned inside so it wasn’t an entirely wasted day. We did get to see a few hints of snowflakes but nothing exciting with this extreme cold.

Today I worked on my focal verse for the year in my tag journal. I will be adding ‘one another’ and other verses that fit my theme for the year. I may add in a few quotes too.

I did a simple watercolor background and hand lettered my verse. I’m loving the older Bo Bunny Serendipity collection that I found in my stash to add accents and used for the cover so I will sprinkle it throughout the journal. I don’t want the tag holes so the paper is a good way to camouflage the holes.

I hope you are finding some crafty or relaxing time this weekend.

2022 OLW – One Another Tag Book

Hi Friends!

Some may have noticed that I changed my banner to For Others Creations the first of the year.

One of my spiritual gifts is encouragement and I feel a strong calling to share kindness & some love and smiles through creating. Our world continues to be a bit chaotic and everyone can use some kindness & encouragement. I’ll do a video soon to explain where I am heading.

Since “for others” isn’t a direct Bible term, I chose ‘One Another’ for my One Little Word for 2022. We are called to love God & love people.

My focal scripture is Hebrews 10:24

‘And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good deeds.’ TLV

The Joggles Wednesday video caught my eye this week with a tag book. I ordered the tag book kit but being a bit impatient to get my project going, I created one with the supplies I had on hand.

I used my Graphic 45 large tag die, watercolor paper, an older Bo Bunny paper collection and a OLW Sweet Jesus custom printable from ConfettiCreativo.

I will fill my journal book with the ‘one another’ Bible verses that I found to compliment my new endeavor. The watercolor paper will allow me to use many different mediums on my pages and the binding style will allow me to tip-in extras as I wish.

Here’s a quick video flip through of my finished journal.

Remember everyone we meet is dealing with something we don’t know about & deserves to be treated with kindness & respect. In sharing love, we will make a difference and become a light in the darkness.
