 did a little Copic coloring and added a bit of embossing but otherwise a very clean and simple card.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello, Happy Thursday.  It is Spring break here in my neck of the woods.  It has been a nice restful week.  I have had lots of time to be creative.  I have seen these screen cards and I wanted to try it.  I thought for today's theme of scripture this would be a great card.
This would be so encouraging for the recipient to display on their desk and remind them of how God uses their trials to produce endurance and that He uses all things for our good.  I know this is a great encouragement to me.  I embossed the panels and added some die cut leaves, that I water colored and then added Ranger rock candy.  It leaves a nice cracked finish.  I added punched flowers with pearl centers and some vellum butterflies with pearl middles.  This card would fold up and fit into a standard size envelope.
This is definitely one I will be creating again.  The scripture stamps are 2 X 2 individual scripture stamps from Inspired Stamps which can be purchased at the Etsy store.
Remember to check out the other DT projects and leaves some words of kindness.  We love to hear from you.  Remember the 31 days of March bible journaling is still taking place.  Visit the Inspired Stamps blog for the link to learn more about journaling in your bible.
Have a great week and create something and encourage someone.  Thanks for stopping by.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello and welcome to the Inspired Stamps DT Thursday post.  Today we were asked to create a "mostly green" project. Green is my favorite color, it has always been a color to make me happy, so here is what I came up with.  I used the BoBunny 6 X 6 paper pack Enchanted garden.  There was this great "mostly green" chevron tile pattern.  I cut along the tiles to create a break and added my sentiment from His Word stamp set.  I also stamped the vase of flowers from this same stamp set and colored with my newly refilled Copic markers, pulling the colors from the paper.  I matted image on scallop oval green pattern paper from same pack.  I used one of my Copic markers to color the string and looped it behind the image.  I added some glue and seal to the one end of string to loop it and allow it to stay in that shape.  This was a quick and easy card but with some details to give it more interest.
Remember the 31 days of March Bible Journaling tutorials. Go to the Inspired Stamps blog for a link to that site.  New stamps added to the Etsy store so be sure to check them out and if you live in the U.S.  there is free shipping for all orders over $25.00.  Gotta love free shipping.
Have a great day, weather is warming up but also bringing a bit of rain in parts, so stay dry.  Create something to encourage someone today.  You will also be encouraged in the process.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello Everyone.  Hope you are all warm.  We are in the midst of another bout of snow.  We went so long with a mild winter and now we are seeing some snow.
Today our theme at Inspired Stamps is Easter.  Easter is only a few short weeks away, so now is the time to start creating Easter cards to share with your friends and family.  I chose Hymn Girl: March and Perfect Sentiments for my card.  I decided to go with a clean and simple card, embossing the white card and stamping Hymn Girl in the center.  I chose to emphasize the significance of the cross by only applying color to it.  I added the sentiment with a few punched flowers with Perfect Pearl accents.
I want to remind you that all these stamps and many more can be purchased in the Esty store and that shipping is free for orders over $25.00 in the US.
For more inspiration be sure to check out the Inspired Stamps blog.  New stamp sets are released on Fridays and Antoinette is hosting a Bible Journaling class for the month of March at her companion blog.  Be sure to stop by and check out the wonderful inspiration.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday


Hello Everyone, Happy Thursday.  We are experiencing some snow flurries today in the Midwest.  Hope you are keeping warm where you are.  Today we are sharing more projects made with the 2 X 2 individual scripture stamps.
I used Isaiah 30:15, I find this a very reassuring scripture and added on the back a sentiment from Card Ministry Basics and the leaf stamp is from the Thank you set.
This card is an interactive swing card and I used Majestic squares from Spellbinders and BoBunny Primrose 6 X 6 paper pad.
Please be sure to check out the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration and the caring card series.  A new series is starting for the 31 Days of March:  Beginning Bible Art Journaling at GodblessyourART.  This is completely free, nothing to sign up for, just pop on over to see the posts and be inspired.  As always these stamps and so many more are available in the Etsy store and free shipping on all orders over 25.00 shipped in the US.

Inspired Stamps- DT Thursday

Hello, I hope you are keeping warm.  We have had a week of snow.  School has been out everyday this week.  Due to the altered schedule I had some time to "play" in my craft room today. I wanted to used two different embossing folders on a single layer card.  After I did I decided to go a bit further and play with some tintable pearl paint.  I added a drop of ink refill and mixed and painted in the flower petals.  I then used liquid pearls to paint in dots.  I kept the rest of card clean and simple.  I like the crisp, clean look of this card.
I used the Hymn Girl Sitting to the Left and Romans 8:31 2 X 2 individual stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are keeping warm.
Remember to visit the Inspired Stamps Blog for more inspiration and visit their Etsy store for these stamps and many others.  Every Friday new stamps are added so be sure to check it out.

Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

Hello, today we are making cards to tell the recipient that we are praying for them.  I used some hexagon punches and dies with the BoBunny Enchanted Garden paper again.  This is a very pretty paper pack and I felt it worked with my design.  I cut the butterfly out of vellum and added some rhinestones.  I think this would encourage any recipient.  This set also has a sentiment that says, "sending you knee mail".  I stamped that on the inside.  I love the play on words in our tech driven generation that I would send an actual card and actually get on my knees to pray for my friend.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the other projects by our talented DT.  Head over to the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration and remember the stamps can be purchased in the Etsy Store.
