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.

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!

DIY Love Notes Mini Book

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon… I start thinking of making some Valentine’s Day projects for my loved ones! And today, I would like to share this Mini Love Notes Book idea with you all.

I made this Love Notes Mini Book using the new digital stamp set from Graciellie Design – Heart Notes.

This project I made with digital stamp set and I used my Silhouette Cameo Machine to do the cutting. I worked with Silhouette Design Studio software to do for the Print and Cut with this digital stamps.

I open the digital stamp files on my image software, resized them to the same sizes and arrange the sentiment on each page. After that, I printed them on white cardstock and then I cut it with electronic cutting Machine. I added some inks of each page with blending brush.

The last page I made the coupons using the Graciellie Design – Love Love Love mega digital stamp set and I cut the ticket shape with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I added it to the both pages with permanent adhesive and it will folded when the book is closed.

I stacked all the pages together with thin double sided tape, and then I punched the holes on the side of the heart with We R Memory Keeper hole punch. After that, I added those ribbons. And then I added some sequins on each page for extra bling.

I hope this project give you an idea for your Valentine’s Day project. Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Slimline Card | New Adventure Is Coming

Happy New Year all!!!! It is the new year, new adventure is coming…so hang on tight, this year will be full of new hope, new memories, and new surprises!!!

And it is still Winter, my card today, I was inspired by the January Artzy Challenge – Winter Fun. I made my slimline Winter fun card using:

I created that watercolor wash background using dye ink pads and water. I smooshed the ink on the craft mat, sprayed with some water, and then I smooshed the watercolor paper on it. I did it couple times to get the watercolored wash texture on it. I dried the ink in between adding colors. I cut this watercolor background with the scallop die from Slim Mini Snowflake Die and I added it to the mini slimline card base with permanent adhesive runner.

I cut a piece of white cardstock with the snowflake background die and then I added it to the card with permanent dries-clear adhesive glue. I put couple large acrylic stamping blocks on it to hold it down until the glue dried.

I stamped the toboggan image on a white cardstock with Artzy Totally Black Ink Pad and then I colored it with alcohol markers. After that, I cut it with the the matching die. 

I stamped the sentiment on another white cardstock with the Artzy Totally Black Ink Pad and then I cut it with the banner die from the Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies.

I added both the sentiment and toboggan on the card with 3D foam tape. I thought there was something missing, so I cut a light blue cardstock using the swirl die from the Toboggan Fun Die set and added it at the back of the toboggan. 

That’s my Winter Fun card today. I hope you all like it.. Thanks for the stopping by my blog today, have wonderful day!
