Scripture Challenge #2 - Challenge Word # 16-Worhip

I am so excited that I am almost caught up with the Scripture Challenges.  This is Word 16 and if you are wondering why they are out of order, it is because I got behind.  I am still doing the current ones, but catching up on the ones I have not done. 

You ask, "how could you miss the word worship" especially since it is such an important part of our life.  We have to worship our Lord in everything that we do!  It is not about going to church or singing, it is about dedicating our whole life, our whole being to do and be what God wants us to be.  We worship Him in everything that we do, or we should.  I like what Patter said, "True worship leads to a surrender of self. It’s not about me. It’s not about you. It’s about Him, doing as He calls, serving Him, glorifying Him, sharing Him, etc. Worship involves a sacrifice of some sort whether it be time, money, emotions, etc."  She is right on with that don't you think?  If you would like to see her complete post on Worship, you can see it here

Joy at Christmas

Good Morning all!  I just love the way this very simple and easy card turned out.  It was actually inspired by last weeks Christian Paper Crafts color challenge and Clean and Simple Challenge and I am also using it as one of my samples for this weeks challenge at late night stampers where you are to make a Christmas Card with non-traditional colors.  In other words no red or green on the card!

For the Clean and simple you were to make a two layer card.  So you can see my two layers which consist of Soft Suede and Whisper White Card Stock.  The other colors used are Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Chocolate Chip.

The two stamp sets I used are Perfect Punches and Northern Hearts.  The reason I used the Perfect Punches is I made a mistake at the bottom and i covered it with the punched Joy at Christmas.  I love it when you can cover up a mistake and it worked out well.

Thanks for looking today and hope you will let me know what you think by leaving a comment.

Scripture Challenge 2 - Word #23 - Assurance

Isn't it nice to know that we can have an assurance of our faith!  When we draw near to our Lord in full assurance of our faith, we will know the peace that surpasses all understanding.  I just love that our Lord is always there with us giving us that assurance and that peace.

Patter has a wonderful post about assurance and you can find it here!  Even though I am still a few behind in words, I am hoping Patter will do this again this coming year.  I am loving looking through the 6 X 6 book I have made with all of my words this year.

My Digital Studio/Christmas Program 2009

How many of you actually went shopping today!  I was out there by 6:00 am and got quite a bit of shopping done.  Ran into some people who had been at it all night.  I am not quite that good, but I do like to get out there and shop a little with the crowd.  Actually today was not so bad!

Any way, thought I would share with you a page I made using My Digital Studio.  It was from our Christmas Program at church last year.  Would you say it took me long enough to get it done.  What actually inspired this page was a Scrapbook sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.  I just love a sketch where you can use quite a few pictures and this just happened to be one of those sketches.  So I was happy to use all these photos.  My two granddaughters were in the program and you can barely see it, but I have dots around there face.  The second row, first and second picture.  They are also in some of the others, but I highlighted them in those two.  By the way, My Digital Studio is half price right now, so it would be a good time to purchase it if you have been thinking about it.  Tuesday is the last day to order at this wonderful price.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Christian Paper Crafts Fun On Friday - Make a gift bag or Gift Box

Today's challenge at Christian paper crafts is to make a gift bag or a gift box. It could be for a birthday, get well, Christmas, whatever your hearts desire. The object is to have fun and the sky is the limit.

So let me share with you the gift bag I made for my sister for her gift for Christmas.  She is very talented musically and I thought this would be the perfect Christmas bag for her present.

I actually started off with a plain white bag and then using the small music notes wheel, I wheeled three separate lines across the bag.  I then used a piece of the Deck the Halls designer series paper from the Christmas Mini cut 2" X 8" and adhered to the bag above the music notes.  Then to make the reindeer heads, I used the following punches:  Extra Wide Oval for all three.  For Rudolph in the center, I used large oval for the open mouth effect.  His red nose and the black noses on the other two reindeer are punched from the itty bitty shapes punch pack (the circle).  For the teeth, I just cut two little strips of card stock and adhered.  The antlers on all three are from the Snowflake punch.  The eyes are from a 1/4" punch and the dots are from the Big Bold Cupcakes 4 pack dies.  The ears are from the five petal punch and the mane or hair on top of the head of the two on the side are punched with the wide oval and then using the round scallop punch.  The hooves are from the Word window punch and I punched two - on in black and one in the soft suede.  Cut each end off the black and adhered to the soft suede and then notched it with my scissors.  Using the stamp set Four the Season, I stamped the Merry Christmas in Cherry Cobbler at the bottom.  Hopefully this will inspire you to make that perfect bag or box for that perfect gift.  Here is a close up of the deer!

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Scripture Challenge 2 - Word #24 Help

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope you have a wonderful day today.  There is so much that I am thankful for, but the one things that I am most thankful for is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  I am so blessed to be a part of His family.  And on this day, I want to thank Him for blessing me with a wonderful family whom will be coming to the house shortly.

When I thought about the word Help that Patter chose for Word #24, I thought first of the verse she used:  Psalm 121:1-2 “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”  You see, I know where my help comes from and I know without His power in my life, I could not be what I am today.

The reason I chose the two verses below is because I know in my weaknesses, I am made strong.  Isn't that something that our Lord can use us even in our weakest moments.  He can also use the very weakness that we have all the time and use it to His glory.  How amazing is that!

And, since He is able to help in my weakness, I am able to witness for Him.  But, in my witness I want to make sure that what I say is truth and comes from His word, which is why I used the verse from Acts 26:22.  He does give us help in everything we have to do.  And, I can be a witness of that. 

Please see Patter's post on the word help here.  She is so talented at sharing from her heart what God has laid upon her heart.

My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up! was used to make this page.  Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends.  God bless!

Christmas Greetings Poinsettia

Hello all, hope all is going well.  I am taking a lunch break at work and posting this card I made last night.  How cute is it.  I had seen one made by Jan McGowen but did not have it available when I put this one together.  It is made with the extra large bird punch by Stampin' Up! and then for the center I used the 5 petal punch.  The card was actually inspired by the sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts!  You can find the sketch here!  What a great sketch!

As you can see, I used Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Pear Pizzazz card stock.  The very vanilla was textured card stock.  I then used the extra large bird punch to punch out 7 cherry cobbler and 7 pear pizzazz, put them together and then attached to the card.  I sprayed the card with the Champagne Shimmer paint watered down in a sprayer.  It was really very simple to do.

Other items used by Stampin' Up!
Stamp Set: Grateful Greetings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
scallop border punch
taffeta old olive ribbon

Happy Birthday Morgan

It is Monday and feels like it all the way around.  This is a card I did for my Granddaughters 6th birthday.  A week ago the Fun on Friday Challenge at Christian paper Crafts was to use a picture on your card and this weeks challenge at SULateNightStampers is to use a photo on your project.  So this is the card I am using for both of the challenges.  Actually the picture of her is from her 5th birthday party and the picture of the fireworks in the background is from our River festival.  I put it all together on "My Digital Studio and the only thing I added was the base of the card and tied the ribbon.  The ribbon in the back is printed and from My Digital Studio.  I printed on regular card stock, so not as pretty as it could be.  But the card turned out so cute and she really loved it. 

This was a copy of the inside of the card.  I also printed this out of My Digital Studio.

By the way, if you are thinking about My Digital Studio, now would be a good time to get it.  It is 50% off until November 30th.  So just click here to purchase!

Hope you have a wonderful evening!

Greeting Card Kids

Good Sunday evening everyone.  It has been a good day today!  Went to church this morning, went out with some friends afterwards and then we took family pictures.  How great is that!  My husbands hates taking pictures, but is very gracious and goes anyway!  I think all men are somewhat like that.

But anyway, on with my post!  This card was inspired by the sketch challenge and the Fun on Friday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts.  I had some of the cut out items left from the stamp-a-stack and just used them to actually complete the card.  So I guess you could say left over scraps also inspired this card.  I love when that happens.  But please go over and check out Christian Paper Crafts.  They have wonderful challenges including scrapbook challenges also.
Stampin' Up! items used:
Stamp Sets: Greeting Card Kids, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Northern Hearts (hostess)
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake
Designer Series paper: Simply Scrappin Christmas Cheer
Classic Ink: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Always Artichoke
5/8" Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!

Merry Christmas Bells & Boughs

It has been a couple of weeks since I have been able to do the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.  But I decided this morning would be the day.  I have had workshops, stampin stacks, birthdays, you name it, I have been doing it.  I do have my Granddaughter's birthday party this afternoon, but I had a few minutes this morning and decided to play.

I actually had left overs from my Stamp-a-stacks and decided to use some of them for this challenge and this is what was inspired.  So I stamped the riding hood red card stock with one of the bells & boughs stamps in Crumb Cake which gave it a very light back ground.  It is really hard to see in this photo, but adds to the card.  Actually the vanilla shimmer spritz kind of clogged while spritzing and so it did not do as good as I would have liked, but I think the card looks a lot better in person.  For some reason you don't see the glob as well as in the photo.  I think it had to do with the light as the picture of the card was being taken.  Anyway, I am happy with the turn out. 

This is a close up of the stamped image and how sparkly it really is.
Items used are Stampin' Up! and include:
Stamp Sets: Four the Season, Bells & Boughs
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Classic Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz
Markers for the coloring
Ribbon: Pear Pizzazz
Brad from Circle Fire Collection

November Workshop/Luminary/ Ornament

Hello all!  I have kept my workshop girls in suspense for the last 3 weeks on what we would be making.  So tonight is my workshop and I am posting this to go live at 5:30 which is when everyone will be in travel status on their way to the workshop.  I just love this luminary and you can find the directions for it here

It was so fun to make and so easy as I used my digital studio to print the paper.  I used the Designer Series Paper tab as the background and then on the long side I added a tear paper in whisper white and then added whisper white to make it to all the way to the edge.  (If you are unsure of what I am talking about, please feel free to e-mail me and I will be glad to send you a picture, and may add that later once I get home, of the page from my digital studio. 

I then printed it on 8 1/2 X 11 whisper white paper.  So really all I had to do was score, use the extra large decorative label punch to punch the holes for the Vellum to be placed, which was stamped with Dasher.  Then I add the snowflake and dazzling diamonds glitter which was adhered using the Multipurpose liquid glue, and the rhinestones and you have it.  All complete.  You can also use two papers and use the tearing method to make this card and use the Candy Cane Christmas paper as the top of the Luminary.

This is a corner view and with this view you can see the candle light better.  Now it is not a regular candle, but a battery votive candle which is very inexpensive.  By the way, all 4 sides are using the Dasher stamp, so it does not matter how you turn it when you sit it out.  That is the best thing about it.  Following is a closeup of the stamped image and the snow.

This card is one I posted a while back, but I wanted an easy Christmas card for this workshop, so this is the one I chose.  I knew with doing the luminary we would need a super easy card and this one was just the ticket.  To find out more about this card, go to this post.  It will tell you all the items used.

Now, I am really proud of this box!  I made it especially for the Hostess gift which will follow this picture.  I just measured and then cut the paper to the dimensions I needed.  I have them at home and will try to add them, if I don't forget, when I have a few moments. It of course was made with the Cherry Cobbler card stock and then added the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper.  I just love that paper.

This is the top of the box and you can see that I made a slit in each side of the box to run the ribbon through.  It just seemed to work out better.  Also, my hostess can use it again if she would like.  I also used the stamp set Delightful Decorations and then punched it out using the ornament punch.  Love that punch and that stamp set.
Now to see the ornament that I made to go into the box.  I actually used the cherry cobbler ink refill, dropped about 20-25 drops into the glass ornament and then rolled the ornament around until the ink covered the whole inside.  Then using the stampin' glitter "Fine Galaxy" (used the gold one) I poured some inside and then rolled it around and dumped what did not stick to use it again.  So that is where the sparkle comes from.  I then ran a piece of whisper white card stock through the xyron machine, punched out a snowflake and then pulled the backing off to adhere it to the glass.  The only thing I wished I had done and will do when she opens it tonight is put a rhinestone in the middle of each snowflake. 
Thought I would show the close up of the glitter on the inside along with the white of the snowflake.  I am sure you could dazzle the snowflake with even more glitter on it.  May try that on the next one.
Thanks so much for looking and please let me know what you think.  Have a blessed evening everyone.

Sweet Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!  The challenge this week over at Latenight Stampers was to make a "sweet card" or project with something "sweet."  So I chose to make this birthday card using the Big Bold Birthday Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies.  I also used this card as the Clean and Simple Saturday challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.  How "sweet" is that, two challenges. It was a lot of fun to make and of course as you know, I can not finish a card without spritzing it with the Vanilla shimmer smooch spritz.

Classic Ink: Melon Mambo

Pink Merry Christmas

I love doing out of the normal Christmas Cards.  I use to think if it was not red and green, it was not Christmas.  So this card was really quite fun to do.

It was inspired by the color challenge at Christian Paper Crafts along with the Case Artist Wednesday Challenge.  The colors were to use pink, green and kraft (crumb cake).  So the colors I chose were Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, crumb cake and of course the neutral color, very vanilla.

I used three stamps from the set "Bells and Boughs."  What a great set that is.  The background was stamped using one of the stamps, the A Merry Christmas using another and then the main focal point, using the third. 

I used Pear Pizzazz ink along with versamark to stamp the image and then using clear embossing powder, embossed the stamped image.  I then used the blushing bride marker to color in the poinsettia and then used the Pear Pizzazz marker to color the few leaves.   I also used the "Flowers a Plenty" embossing folder and the die used was the sizzlits two oval scallops die. 

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!

Thankful Thoughts

This is definitely a Monday!  I had planned on posting this earlier, but things kept getting in the way.

This card was inspired by two challenges.  First by the Late Night Stampers group where we are to make a project geared toward Thanksgiving.  So that is the reason for Thankful Thoughts and the paper I used.  The second challenge was Saturday's Clean and Simple Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts which was a sketch this week.  I love it when two challenges or more can come together.

Gift Card Holder

How cute is this little gift card holder and I threw it together in less than 30 minutes.  Since this weeks challenge for late night stampers is to make a gift card, I thought I would try one from scratch and see how it worked out.  I actually started with the inside to see how big it needed to be with a gift card inside and then went from there to get all the dimensions right.  Also this little girl just makes the card.  I am loving this little set.

Now to tell you how I did it.
I cut the paper on the inside 1/4" bigger than the gift card, which was cut at 3-3/4 X 2-1/2.  Then using a punch, I punched the corners of opposite sides to insert the gift card into.  Once I had this part complete, I knew what the outside of the card would have to be cut at.  So, I cut a piece of real red card stock 8-1/2 X 3 and then scored at 4-1/4 and folded on the score line.  I then adhered the inside to the card.  I cut a piece of 1/4 grosgrain whisper white ribbon that went all the way around the red card stock and then big enough to tie a bow and adhered to the red card stock.    I then cut a piece of the Candy Cane Christmas Specialty paper at 4-1/8 X 2-7/8 and adhered over the top of the red card stock and the ribbon.  Stamped an image of the Greeting Card Kids stamp on Natural White Card Stock in the chocolate chip classic ink, colored image with markers, adhered this to a piece of real red card stock and using stampin' dimensionals attached to the card as you see in photo.  That is all there is to it.  EASY!!!!!

Thanks so much for looking and please let me know if you try one.  I would love to take a look at it.  Have a blessed evening.

Northern Flurry

I am loving this Northern Flurry Textured Embossing Folder.  What inspired this card was the Bible Verse Thursday at Christian Paper Crafts, use anything that glitters and a Bible Verse, and the Fun On Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts which was to use wet or dry embossing.  So what I did was to use the brayer to apply Marina Mist classic ink to the Northern Flurry embossing folder and then using whisper white paper emboss it.  So as you can see the snowflakes really pop because they stayed white while the rest of the card was turned into the marina mist color.  How cool is that?  I have done that with a few of the other folders and it really makes a big difference.  On this card, I did use one of Stampin' Up!'s retired stamp sets "City of David" for the sentiment since I was suppose to use a Bible Verse for one of the challenges.  If you take a look at the close up of the next photo, you can really see just how shimmery the card is.  I used the vanilla shimmer smooch spritz.

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!

Scripture Challenge 2, Word 17 & 22

As you can see, I am still catching up on my scripture challenge words.  Prayer is challenge word # 17 and it was not long ago that I did one for the word quiet and talked about prayer with that one also.  As you can see by the verse I chose we should always be praying.  It is something that when the spirit speaks to us that we automatically talk with our Lord.  Whether it is a thanks you Lord or if He has laid someone on our heart and we just say give them peace, comfort and joy today.  It is so easy to talk with the Lord when He is a part of your life.  Here is Patter's post on Prayer!

Serve is challenge word #22.  Can you believe that our Lord, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords came to serve and to give His life a ransom for you and me.  That is just so awesome to me.  There was no "I can't do that, I am a King."  No He laid down everything so that we could have salvation.  That is why I serve, so that I can be pleasing to my Lord.  Do I always want to serve?  No, but I am wanting to glorify my Lord.  Here is Patter's post on serve!  Please check it out.
Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!

Deck The Halls Christmas

This is a card that was inspired by Christian Paper Crafts Tuesday Sketch.  It was a square sketch, but I made it into a regular card.  You can see the sketch here!  And, what an awesome sketch it was.  I do not do it justice.

As you can see though, Deck the Halls is my favorite Designer Christmas paper to date!  I am just loving that stuff and also loving the stamp set Bells & Boughs.  Of course you can not leave out the fact that I spritz most of my cards with the vanilla shimmer smooch spritz.  I guess you could say everything is my favorite.

Stampin' Up! Items used:

Stamp Sets:  Bells & Boughs, Four the Season
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Designer Paper: Deck the Halls
Classic Ink: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and crumb cake for sponging.
Water color pencils
1/2" Cherry Cobbler seam binding
Vanilla Shimmer spritz

Close up of image and spritzing!  Thanks for looking and please let me know what you think.

Gift Card Holder

Is this not the cutest little gift card holder?  I actually had received one of these about 3 years ago and when I saw the challenge for this weeks Late Night Stampers to make a gift card holder, I decided to take it apart and see how it was made.  I then traced it onto the piece of Designer Series Paper, cut it out and put it together.  For the very first one, I thought it turned out fairly well.  I am going to try and make a template that will be easier to use and when and if I do, I will post the template for others to use.

Stampin' Up! Products used:
Stamp Set: Tag Alongs
Designer Series Paper: Specialty Candy Cane Christmas
Classic Ink: Baja Breeze
Real Red Marker

Greeting Card Kids meets Stamping 411

I just love this little girl and I just love her coat, hat and scarf!  I have made a few Christmas Cards with her and I have not found one I dislike at all.  As soon as I saw this sketch from Stamping 411 this weekend, I knew I was going to use this stamp.  And, as always I love stamping 411's sketches.  Each week has a different twist to it.

The base of my card is natural white, the second piece is real red and then 1" X 4" strips (4) are placed over the red.  Then using the top note die, cut it out in natural white, sponged the top with marina mist classic ink and the bottom I used some dazzling diamonds to give the glittery effect after I stamped the image from Greeting Card Kids and Plant Hope stamp sets.  Adhered it together and then put the ribbons over it and added the rhinestones.  Very easy and quick.

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a very blessed evening.
