Hi all, today's card is for all the people in your life that love to fish.

I started with the yellow cardstock and cut a square from the center them I layered the teal paper behind and cut a smaller square.

The fishing pole was stamped on the yellow cardstock with the hook going over the edge.

On white I stamped the 

I used the fishing pole to stamp the hook in the corner.

Then I used the Four Flower Background to add some color across the bottom.
Copic's were used to color everything.

The Jumping At The Chance was stamped onto white then the Four flower was stamped over the top. Using the Matting basic dies to cut it out and make a teal mat. 

Have a wonderful day,


Greatest of These is Love

Good morning!

I have some Bible journaling for you today.

 DRS new Bible Journaling stamps!
I used Momento Lux gray ink for 572E "Faith, Hope, Love" (new release) and Monento Lux Black for the Remember This 790B and the Arrow 807C.

I have to say that if you use that ink, make sure you heat set it before touching as it takes a bit of time to dry on it's own.  Nothing more maddening than smudging ink in your Bible!!  Thankfully, it erased pretty well too (not after heat setting though).
I wanted this journaling to be nice and bright because of the content!  This is the great LOVE chapter in the Bible (1 Corinthians 13).   I added some drawn sunrays on the bottom and the top to cover any lasting smudge marks, I like it!
I used colored pencils to color in the letters and I used Pan Pastels to add the pretty yellow focus color.  As you can see, this Bible was made for journaling, it has 2" margins with faint lines.  I got mine here at CBD.
If you are into highlighting verses and writing in your Bible, DRS Designs has some great new stamps to help you along!!!
Thanks for visiting today!


Happy Happy

Happy Friday!
And I hope you're planning a wonderful, long Memorial Day weekend. As I was looking at this fun new Happy Happy Day greeting, I'm thinking what can I add? I guess one more, great BIG happy! And a happy hot pink color. The concept was easy..but executing this split design took a little planning since I was using dies to cut everything. I first die cut the main white panel, then determined where to add (and split) the greeting. 2 lines above & 2 below looked about right, so I took the die and moved it up on the panel & cut off the bottom. I placed the bottom section in the die & cut off the top, removing the middle section. Then I die cut the hot pink layer & removed the inside, leaving just a frame for the white layers. I added a strip of the pink at the bottom of the top section & at the top of the bottom section then added the die cut HAPPY in between. 
Before I attached to the card front, I stamped the greeting & added the Scroll Corner Tile images in the corners. I added just a hint of pink inside the scrolls & I used the Splatter Bg to stamp a strip behind the large Happy die cut.  

Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Bible Journaling with Umbrellas

>> Wednesday, May 25, 2016

The new DRS Designs Bible Journaling stamps are super great and help to make your pages look awecome.  I used the new Strength and Dignity Greeting on this Bible Journaling card.

I lead a Bible Journaling class at my church and last month we made wedding dresses out of doilies. They loved them! So for the next class we are gong to make dresses out of umbrellas.  I used the DRS Designs Umbrella image to make this dress.  I stamped the image 9 times and shaded them using a sponge and some Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then layerd up the umbrellas cutting sections off the top umbrella layers and using them to expand the bottom layers.  I sponged on a bit more ink and then added a few starfish from the 4-in-1 seashells image.  I then added a little gold lace to the top and sprayed the whole dress with some Fireworks spray.  For the base layer, I stamped the main greeting and then sponged around a chicken wire stencil.  It needed some more texture so I added some modeling paste on the stencil too.  To finish it off, I flicked some water colors in light brown and green.

I attached my card to my Bible page with some washi tape.  I plan to write prayers on the other side.

Many hugz!


Faith Hope Love

>> Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I decided to make an inspirational card for my share today on the blog.  The beautiful 
Faith Hope Love (872E) stamp was recently released, and it can do double duty for Bible journaling or as a sentiment on a card of encouragement.  

I always think there's something soothing about a pink and blue sky, so I made my watercolor  background using blue, purple and pink ink.  Once it was dry,  I stamped some wispy grasses along the bottom using the Long Tall Wheat and Four Flower Background stamps.  I dyed a piece of seam binding and made a bow around the panel before attaching it to the card base and black layer.  

 The sentiment was stamped, colored with Copic markers to match and die cut.  I then covered it in heat and stick powder, so that I could coat the whole thing in transparent glitter.  Finally, it was adhered to the card using some dimensional foam tape. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a beautiful day :)


Faith, Hope, Love

>> Monday, May 23, 2016

Happy Monday! My card today features the new Faith, Hope, Love greeting (872E). I stamped it with Memento Black ink on white CS, colored it with Copics and die cut it along with some layers in blue and white. The large blue panel was embossed with a CB Damask folder and attached to the white card base. The silhouette boy praying was stamped with Versafine onyx ink and fussy cut and added with some foam dots for dimension. The small white ribbon was added to complete the look.
I like how this image looks. It would be great for Bible journal too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
