Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude

Welcome to Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude. This week we are using Hebrews 13:15. The flower is from Flower Buds. I have to say this scripture verse is perfect for me. I am trying a new med for my foot/hip and so far working except having to deal with side effects which are getting easier to deal with. I am praising God for putting the right doctor in my path.

Inspired Stamps 52 Gratitude

Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude this week we are using Philippans 4:13. This week this scripture hits home. I have learned some stuff that has made me think about where I want to head in my life and where God is leading me. I know whatever cross he has for me that he will be there with me. I choose to use a metallic paper base. I stamped flowers from Card Ministry Basic Set. on the base than embossed them with a glitter embossing powder. I then roughed up edges and inked everything with Distress Ink. The colors are from the SCS Mix Ability challenge to use mainly warm colors and a pop of a cool color.

SOG cards

These cards are using Some Odd Girl images. I just had fun coloring the images. I found this DSP and it matched the images and went with the purple duck. I am still trying to come up with sayings for both cards. The bottom was a happy accident the puppy was on my desk and it happened to be with this scrap of DSP that I colored with Faber Castell Big Blue pen and gelato.

This card was inspired by Clearsnap's OWH post. She used inks but don't have much in Clearsnap inks so I used some smooch paint dried it than used white ink on top of it. The heart was embossed with pool party. The Silver Lustre is extremely shiny so it was hard to get a good photo. It also fits Sweet n Sassy Stamp's April Challenge #1.
