D2BA | Roses For A Lifetime

Who doesn’t want roses for a lifetime? Today, I would like to share this rose card with you all. When I saw the new Layered Rose Stamp Set at D2BA store, I fell in love with this set.

I created the roses background panel by stamping the image on a white cardstock with Totally Black Artzy Ink Pad. After stamping, I cut the panel with Double Dot Circle Framelit Dies and Rectangle Framelit Dies. I added it to the card base with permanent adhesive runner.

The sentiment is from the Layered Rose Stamp Set that I stamped with Totally Black Artzy Ink Pad using my Mini MISTI stamping tool.

I stamped image stalk of rose with the Totally Black Artzy Ink Pad on a white cardstock and then stamped the layers of the petal and leaves with dye inks using my Mini MISTI stamping tool. I cut the rose with the matching Layered Rose Die Set. I added it to the card with 3D foam dots.

Then I cut couple of the red hearts with the heart die from the Layered Rose Die Set and I added them to the card with 3D foam dots. Then I added some of the gems to embellish the card.

I hope this project inspires you. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful day!

Bible Journaling | Confident In Jesus

Hello everyone… We are at the end of January already! Time flies fast and we cannot stop it. We can keep on going in faith and confident that we have hopeful future.

Today, I wanna share my Bible journaling page on this verse from 1 John 5:14-15.

From this Bible verses, we are encouraged to confident in Jesus when we pray. We need to know and have confident in Jesus that when we ask anything according to His will, he hears us.

Our God is the El Roi, the God who sees us, the LORD who will help us. He is here for you and me.

On my Bible journaling page today, I used Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps:

  • My Savior’s Love Clear Stamp Set
  • Sweetpea Alpha Clear Stamp Set
  • Skinny Caps Alpha Cleat Stamp Set

I stamped all images and alpha letters with VersaMagic Midnight Black, and then I loosely watercolored the flowers and pages using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints.

After watercoloring, I ironed the wrinkle page so it was flat and smooth again for me to write on, plus, dried the paint completely.

I hope this truth encourage you today and you can step into the next month with confident and hope.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, have a wonderful blessed day!

D2BA | Sending Love with Handmade Cards

Hello crafty friends… Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is less than a month now! Today I would like to share these ideas of sending love with handmade cards.

I always love making projects with stencils and this time, I used stencils to create all the backgrounds on these 3 cards. When I use stencils, I not only get 1 print but 3 or 4 prints. To create these stenciled backgrounds, I used Distress Oxide sprays and watercolor paint with the Heart Duo Stencils using spray over stencil technique, stamping with stencil technique, and ghosting with stencil technique.

First card, I cut the stenciled panel with Rectangle Framelit Dies and I popped up the middle panel with 3D foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Hello Word Die set. I embellished it with some gems. This is a quick and simple card to make.

The second card, I used the Rectangle Framelit Dies to cut the background panel and added it to the card with permanent adhesive runner tape. And then, I make a tag shaker with Mini Hugs Tag Die set. I also cut the sentiment word from the same die set. The flower is from the Breezy Blossoms Stamp Set and I cut it with the matching Blossoms Die.

This third card is a mini slimline card and also a clean and simple card. I cut a pink card stock and the stenciled panel with the Slim Mini Wavy Layers Die. And then, I cut the heart shape using the heart die from the Heart Background Die and I used 3D foam tape to pop it up on the card. The sentiment is from the Love You Double Layered Word Die, I cut the little heart in the middle of the phrase with scissors and I added it to the card with permanent adhesive glue.

You can make these cards with supplies you have and can be sent out to anyone at any time you need to, not only on the Valentine’s Day. Let’s spread some love with handmade cards! 

Thanks for stopping by our blog today. Have wonderful day!

Mixed Media Tag | Wonderful Love

Sometimes, we find it is hard to sing praises and to pray in hard situation and circumstances. When our mind occupied by worries and problems, we can think of something else. But God has provided ways for us to continue praying and praising His name.

In the book of Psalm, we can read all kind of praises and prayers that we can also use as our praises and use the verses to pray to the Lord. They are God’s word. And God’s word never return void (Isaiah 55:11).

In the book of Psalm 17, David expressed what was in his heart to the LORD with this prayer.

He pleaded for justice and brought his case before Him to judge.

He had confident that the LORD would answer his prayer.

He asked the LORD to show him His wonderful love, guidance, protection, and judgement over his enemies.

We all can have hope and faith in the same GOD for He is the LORD who is faithful and just. You can call upon Him today for He will listen and for sure He will answer you, my friends… He loves you with His everlasting wonderful love!

I created my mixed media tag bookmark today using these stamp sets from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps:

  • CreativeWorship: My Savior’s Love clear stamp set
  • Funky Texture clear stamp set

On the background, I used Distress Crayons, TCW Matte Medium, and stamping with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, Faber Castell Big Brush Pen and PITT XS Pen.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Bible Journaling | Walk In Love

As we walking into the new year, we all hope for better year. This week as I am meditating God’s word, I am reminded to walk in love with the Lord.

Reading the verse 2 John 1:6, I learned that walking in love is:

  • the beginning of God’s message
  • the foundation of teaching
  • the commandment

When we read and study God’s message in the Bible, we are walking in His love. We gain knowledge of who He is and his steadfast love for his people. We also are called to share and teach His message to others. We walk in love when we teach his teaching to others. And it is a commandment from the Lord himself. To love the Lord is to obey his commands.

My Bible journaling page today, I created using supplies from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps:

  • Creative Worship: My Savior’s Love clear stamp set
  • Creative Worship: Sweetpea Alpha clear stamp set
  • Funky Texture clear stamp set
  • Hearts Galore Stencil

On the background, I added layers of Pastel Gelatos and Metallic Gelatos. And then I added layers of stamping with VersaMagic inks.

I stamped the flower images with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and I colored them with watercolor pencils and I cut it with scissors. I added to the journaling page with permanent adhesive glue.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful, blessed day!
