Spellbinders: Lord is My Strength

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Today I want to share with you my colorful (and cheerful) watercolour card with some Spellbinders Joanne Fink Bible Journaling collection products.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Take Delight set on the centre of the watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Smokey Grey pigment ink. I then randomly stamped flowers, butterflies, birds, treble clef around the edges of the panel using the same gray pigment ink. I stamped the sentiment & flowers on a separate watercolour paper in grey for adding dimensions to my card later.
I brushed over the stamped images with clean water first, and then coloured them with watercolours just the way I like! I also coloured another stamped flowers (from the Inspiring Others stamp set) with watercolours, and then fussy cut them out.
Once the panel was completely dry, I decorated the panel with lacy ribbon & small flowers as shown to the picture, and then mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape. Finally I added the sentiment panel & flowers using foam tape. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Spellbinders: Live By Inspiring Others

Hello crafty friends!
I am so thrilled to be the guest designer for Spellbinders this month. In February, I will be sharing greeting cards using so beautiful Bible Journaling collection by Joanne Fink – It is SO inspiring!
For today’s card, I’m featuring the Inspiring Others Stamp Set along with other Spellbinders dies.

Here is what I came up with:

Here are step-by-step photos:
1) Die-cut Geo Flower die from the Kaleidoscope collection from pale grey card stock.2) Make own adhesive panel using double-sided tape. Overlap the tapes carefully so there are no gaps.
3) Adhere Geo Flower die cut on adhesive panel. Trim outside of the die cut out using a scissors.
4) Apply glitters onto the sticky part of the die cut panel. Rub glitter with fingers to set in place.
5) Stamp butterflies from the Inspiring Others set onto watercolour paper using black pigment ink, and then watercolour them. Allow to dry completely. Fussy cut them out.
6) Die-cut 4 laces from pale grey card stock using one of the beautiful lace borders in the Small Die of the February Kit.

Lastly, I stamped sentiment from the Inspiring Others set on the same pale grey card stock using black pigment ink, and then trimmed it out using the Geo Flower die set – I just used the solid shape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
This month’s Altenew build-a-flower set features a beautiful Peony Blossom. The Peony Blossom Build-A-Flower has a slightly different approach than our conventional Build-A-Flower sets. The stamp set has three five-petal flowers accompanied by a shading layer and a center layer. You may use these flowers as is, or layer them to create dimension. The matching dies will cut the flowers all the way to the edge without leaving a border. This will help in shaping the petals to the desired dimension when using a shaping tool (don’t have a shaping tool? You can use the domed end of a pen or pencil!). We included an additional flower die and stamen dies to help you create realistic blooms! Even though we named the set ‘Peony Blossom’ since the petals were loosely based on Peony petals, you can let your imagination run wild and create different types of flowers! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom

Here is what I came up with:

I stamped flower petals onto watercolour paper using Coral Bliss & Heart Beat dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
I then cut between stamped lines shown as the picture using scissors.
I added stamen on the centre of each flower using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Adore You stamp set.

My cards today, I am featuring the Forever and Always and the Happy Bloom sets – These two flower sets are truly gorgeous!!
For my first card, I made a watercolour flower card with the Forever and Always stamp & die set. I stamped a flower bouquet onto watercolour paper in pigment black first, coloured it with watercolours, and then die cut it with the matching die. I watercoloured the background panel with shades of pink.
I mounted the watercoloured panel on Spicy Yogurt card base using glue tape first, and then all elements as shown to card front using foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever and Always set inside the card in black. Oh, that sentiment is so romantic!!

For my second card, I used the Happy Bloom stamp set. I stamped flowers & leaves randomly onto white paper panel in black dye ink. I then coloured the background with the Artist Markers Set A: (from light to dark) Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Desert Night. For the stamped flowers & leaves, I coloured them with polychromos pencils.
