Stencil Challenge | Coffee Is The Answer

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! May this year will be full of hope, peace, and good health.

Some of us might be stepping into this new year with some questions about what will this year bring with it, how life going to be, or when our kids will be able to go back to school, and more… there is still uncertaain feeling but I pray for you all that the LORD will keep you, and bless you, and shine His face upon you, and show you His favor. Let us put our hope in Him, the creator of all, the one who is certain and unchangeable.

On this new year, I have a fun card to share with you all. STAMPlorations kick of the new year with new challenges. I made this card for the January Stencil Challenge.

I used the Petals 1 ARTplorations Stencil to blend the inks on the background. I used Catherine Pooler Inks (It’s A Girl and Bellini) and oval blending brush.

First, I cut put the Travel Mug CUTplorations. Next, I put the positive and negative cuts on MISTI and then I stamped the travel mug image from the Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamp Set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad. I repeated these step to get a secong mug.

I stamped the sentiment on one mug and the lines on the second mug using the same ink pad colors with the background. I added both mugs on the card with permanent adhesive and 3D foam tape.

I hope my card sparks an idea for you. Now it’s your turn to create projects using your stencils you have in stash. STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge theme is anything goes as long as you use stencils. Plus… if you use any STAMPlorations products, you can also link up at the Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge.

From Ours To Yours

Christmas Day is here and this is always and only one reason to celebrate it: Jesus.

He is the gift that is given to all of us because of God’s grace and love, not because we are being good.

Jesus…
The Gift that forever changed the world.
He was…He is…and He will be forever…
The Wonderful Counselor
The Mighty God
The Everlasting Father
The Prince of Peace

In Jesus, there is certainty in this uncertainty days.

In Jesus, we find hope in the days that seem hopeless.

Let’s cherish every moment we all have with our loved one and be the light and blessing to those around us at every opportunity we have.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season and have a blessed New Year. May The Lord bless you and keep you in 2021.

Much love,
