Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude

Welcome to Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude. This week we are using Ephesians 2:8. I had fun making this ATC. I used Background Stamps to "frame" the scripture. I had sprayed the paper with different mists before stamping. I did the same to the brown. The green and edges are rubbed with liquid pearls. This is an ATC.

SOG June sketch

Ok, This is my last minute entry for Some Odd Girl Sketch challenge. I can't believe June is almost done. We have finally heat hot and dry at least for awhile which I prefer. The sides of the paper are Scotch tape that I found while looking at school supplies for my dauther. The purple under the ribbon is the same. It is kinda of like washi tape.

You make me smile

This cute image is from Stamp Fairy. The flowers are from Fred She Said. I am trying to make quick cards so I can get some of the images that I have colored to cards.

This week at Inspired Stamps we are using Acts 5:29. It amazes me how God knows what we need and when. I got some bad news and realized something that I needed to face. My faith is important to me and is who I am. This scripture reminded me that I need to obey God and not men. I hope you find strength in scripture too.
I used Helmar Arts and Crafts glue to stamp using the Background Stamps. I then inked with different Distress inks. I stamped on the ribbon too. Up top you can see closer detail.

Thinking of You

I found a new challenge called Chocolate, Coffee & Cards. I just love the name of it. The challenge this time is a tic tac toe. I choose ribbon, lace and flowers. The card was made from papers that I had laying on my desk that were for other cards but didn't work. I added liquid pearls to center of flowers. The image is from Some Odd Girl.

Inspired Stamps 52 week of Gratitude

Welcome to this week Inspired Stamps of Gratitude Sunday. This week we are using Jeremiah 1:12. I decided to go vintage with this one. I used different embellishments that I found while cleaning my scrap room. I had a bit of trouble with this scripture at first but than realized how this fit into my life with praying. It is to remind me that God has his hand in everything. I hope you have a good week.

Inspired Stamps of 52 Weeks of Gratitude

This week we are using James 4:8 for our inspiration this week. I have to say this scripture is perfect for me to memorize this week. May was extremlly busy and glad June is here. Life should settle down a bit. My daughter graduated High School on friday so I have survived everything by relying on God.  For this one, I used an ATC watercolor paper for base. I stamped first with Background Stamps inked with a pink ink then I stamped some flourishes with silver distress paint from Fruitful Flourishes. The scripture is on a white Metallic paper I stamped and embossed the scripture. I then added some pink ink to the paper and edge it with the silver paint. The embellishments are from my stash.
