Bible journaling and… a cell phone!

March 21, 2017

Don’t miss the new creation on our Simplicity Site today… click HERE to check it out!

And now scroll down for more amazing Bible journaling!

Our newest collection, BLISS 2017, includes a collection of stamps perfectly suited for Bible journaling: 30-409 Faith, 30-403 Delicate Garden, 30-406 All Great Things, 30-405 This Way, 30-404 Spiritual Snippets. This week we welcome a spectacular guest designer, Penny Ward, as she features these new stamps on her fabulous pages and cards!

Wow, wow, wow! Today Penny inspires with a gorgeous masked design featuring a sentiment from our transparent set, 30-406 All Great Things.

Penny hand trimmed a simple cross from thin computer paper and used it as a mask. With the mask in place, she then stamped the floral images from our transparent set, 30-403 Delicate Garden, so they appear to be peeking out from behind the cross.

And once again, her beautiful page is embellished with a handmade bookmark featuring our Creative Die, 51-319 Bookmark Tab, and a stamped sentiment from the transparent set, 30-404 Spiritual Snippets. Wouldn’t a set of these handmade bookmarks make a lovely gift?

Today’s bonus project is a show-stopper.

Not only has Penny used our transparent set, 30-406 All Great Things, on her bible journaling page, but she’s paired it with Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-539 Effulgent, to create a one-of-a-kind cell phone cover.

Gorgeous and genius!

Welcome, Penny Ward!

March 20, 2017

Our newest collection, BLISS 2017, includes a collection of stamps perfectly suited for Bible journaling: 30-409 Faith30-403 Delicate Garden30-406 All Great Things30-405 This Way30-404 Spiritual Snippets. This week we welcome a spectacular guest designer, Penny Ward, as she features these new stamps on her fabulous pages and cards!

Hello from Penny Ward. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mom, nana, Breast Cancer survivor and a card designer from Lake Placid, Fl. So thrilled to be sharing my Bible journaling with you using the newest Bliss release from Penny Black.

If you are a cardmaker and have been toying with the idea of trying Bible journaling with stamps, we encourage you to take the leap! Penny’s tips will help you bring your love of stamping to a new artistic expression.

  • Because of the fine paper in a Bible, you really need to use a light touch. Think pounce when wanting to ink blend. Use a clipboard behind pages when stamping for a hard resistance. If using a Misti tool or similar, use a strong magnet and lift the lid slowly so as not to move the paper. Protect other pages by using computer paper behind the page you are creating.
  • Pens, markers, gels, sprays and watercolors can be used, but do expect bleeding behind the page. (Although if you first paint the page with clear gesso then that diminishes the bleeding and allows you to watercolor on your page, too.) Pan Pastels, colored pencils, dry Gelatos and Copic Air System don’t bleed.
  • And finally…if you are OCD about your Bible as I am…a warm iron will flatten a page nicely. (I can’t believe I just admitted that I can’t stand a wrinkled or warped page).  🙂

This first page by Penny couldn’t possibly be more creative. She’s used our transparent stamp sets, 30-405 This Way and 30-404 Spiritual Snippets, as the focal point on her page. Don’t you love how she’s positioned the words to spell ‘prayers’?

Penny’s soft floral background stamping was achieved using our transparent set, 30-417 Delicate Silhouettes.

And finally, Penny’s page is accented with an artistic bookmark created by combining our Creative Die, 51-319 BookMark Tab, with another sentiment from the transparent set, 30-404 Spiritual Snippets.

Not only does Penny have a bible journaling page for us each day this week, she also has a bonus project demonstrating the use of these featured stamps for cards, too.

On this blue beauty she’s combined two stamps, 30-406 All Great Things and 40-508 Gladsome.

Our Creative Die, 51-209 Edger, adds extra detail and even more elegance to Penny’s lovely card design. The diagonal positioning on her card is so eye-catching.

Fun Friday: 3D Delights

March 17, 2017

Before we begin the 3D delights with Elizabeth, we wanted to take a moment to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. We’re so lucky to have you here with us today… and every day!

Card design by Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod featuring our miniature transparent set, 30-292 So Lucky.
Tutorial available HERE.

Today we share another of designer Elizabeth Allan’s amazing creations featuring our Creative Die set, 51-342 3D Animal.

With happy colors, a flower garden background, and heart banners… this card would help anyone love their birthday.

To accompany her 3D elephant, Elizabeth’s floral background was created using elements from our Creative Die set, 51-144 In the Garden.

And Creative Die, 51-022 Heart String, complements her sentiment perfectly.

Elizabeth’s 3D design features the same technique as described in the supplies and instructions available HERE, only this time her polaroid element has been used vertically.

One more thing… TGIF!
