Inspired Stamps Thursday DT post

Hello Everyone.  I have some news for you.  Inspired Stamps is having a sale until midnight Friday, August 30th.  The sale is 20% off everything including sale/clearance items, so hurry over to the Inspired Stamps Store and choose your favorites before the sale ends.

Today we are celebrating with Birthday cards.  I used two Inspired Stamps sets, Thinking of you (flower cluster) and Perfect Sentiments.  I did some omitting stamping to stamp the "Happy" and "Birthday" on different lines.  If you look at this stamp set the words are in a straight line, but I wanted them to fit on my tag, so I inked each word separately.
 I embossed the background with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder and used washi tape to make a banner.  I colored the flower image with Copics to match the washi colors.  I then mounted everything on a pink card base.

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out the other DT designs and visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more tips on how to memorize scripture and make beautiful art journal pieces.  Have a great long weekend.  My kids are looking forward to sleeping in :)

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello everyone!  Another week almost gone.  Where does it go?
This week the DT was asked to create projects using our favorite HLO and scripture.  I just love Girl Studying HLO, she is so adorable.  I decided to place a piece of multicolored dp behind the focal image.  I colored her shirt in an orange stripe (good Fall colors) and cut and embossed the image and the matte.  I decided on yellow for the matte, it made the image pop more than the orange did.  I love Kraft card bases and I stamped the scripture right on the base.  I chose Proverbs 16:3 from His Plans For You set.  Since school is back in full swing, this seems to be a scripture I am reminding my children of often.  It is so hard to get back in the swing of school when the weather is so nice.
I hope you enjoy another CAS card from me.  Please remember to check out the other DT member blogs or the Inspired Stamps Blog to see more beautiful creations.  Also make sure to visit the Inspired Stamps blog on Friday for another installment of "How to Memorize Scripture".  Fun techniques to put scripture to memory and of course some beautiful art techniques as well.

Inspired Stamp Thursday DT post

Hello Everyone it is Thursday and we have a DT post using scripture of our choice.  Today I chose Proverbs 4:23 from the Guard Your Heart set.  I love this set with great scripture as well as images.  

I chose clean and simple.   I used two pieces of Washi tape (black with polka dots) for background.  I embossed circle hearts on red square, added a piece of black stitched ribbon.  I cut a circle with Spellbinder die and embossed it.  I stamped my scripture and I felt it needed something else so I added the 3 punched hearts to go with the verse.  Last, I rounded two of the corners on the card base and voila, done.

I hope you like it, please leave me some kind words and let me know what you do to guard your heart.
Please be sure to check out the Inspired Stamps blog for all the other great DT designs and then on Fridays Antoinette is starting a new series so be sure to stop by and check it out.
Have a blessed day.

Inspired Stamps Thursday DT -one stamp 3 ways

One stamp 3 ways
 Hello everyone, it is Thursday and what a busy week with school starting back for the kiddos.  With all the hustle and bustle I feel my card making skills are on hold.  This week we were to use one individual 2X2 scripture  ( I chose Romans8:28, we all need reminding of this scripture from time to time, don't we?) and make 3 different cards.  I chose to stay in the same color palette but chose different background papers and edgings.  I chose to add a bit of bling or pearls to each card.  The second card has a bit of Tim Holtz paper string tied in a knot at the top.  I used different dies to cut out the scripture and mounted each on foam tape.  Pretty simple but I feel these are also masculine enough to send to some of those men in our lives who bless us.  I am always in need of a masculine card.  Hope you have a great day, please pray for my family as we are embarking on many new journeys this school year.  Please feel free to check out the other talented DT creations by clicking directly on their links to the right or visit the Inspired Stamps blog.
