Bible Journaling Feathers and Hearts

Today, I am sharing a little stamping for my bible journal pages.


This first one is with an inspirational feather with beautiful words.
"Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
"And now these three remain; faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13


Another meaningful feather.
"When I am weak Lord, give me strength."
"When I fall, lift me up and carry me."
"Through fire and the raging storms, only love will remain."
"Listen to the soul."
"Peace"


And finally, a page with a heart and beautiful message.
"Love is the music of the soul."

Get Well Mixed Media Card & Tutorial

This is a mixed media style watercolor card


Sentiment:  Hope you feel better a little more every day.

The process for this was a little out of my comfort zone.
I used Brusho powders for the first time.  Here is how I got the look.

Brusho tutorial for this card:

Use: Brusho, watercolor paper, stamp, water, spray mister bottle, Ranger archival ink, paper towel, plastic gloves, apron, plastic mat. (The colors stain, so use caution.)

Stamp onto watercolor paper. (Optional: Stamp after the watercolor dries completely.)
Spray the watercolor paper with water.
LIGHTLY sprinkle one color at a time.
Spray with water again. (This moves the color, dissolves the powder and blends.)
Repeat as needed.
Dry completely.

The outcome will be different every time.  But, what a cool process, my new favorite thing. haha.

Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop Bookmark or Gift Tag

This is my first time participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I decided to make a bookmark / gift tag for the occasion.


Sentiment:  A good book is always better with something hot.

I used the colors of gold, mustard and turquoise and layered the image panel.  The dots are made with gold embossing paste and a stencil.

I made this for use as a bookmark, but it can also work as a fun gift or wine tag.

Funny Classic Car Birthday Card

Here is a clean and simple vintage style masculine card with a little humor.


Sentiment:  Happy birthday.  You are now a classic.

I know a few people who would get a chuckle out of this one.

This card shines and looks much better in person.
The 1957 Chevy car is covered in Glossy Accents and shines like new paint.  And the road strip is gold watercolor.  It is hard to capture the shine in a photograph.
