Penny on Penny: Bible Journaling

November 24, 2017

Once a month, Penny Ward joins us with her inspiring and gorgeous Bible journaling pages featuring our products! You can read more about Penny and her Bible journaling tips HERE. We love her approach to Bible journaling: “I journal in a Bible to show my love of God and particular scripture most of the time. God gave me the crafty gene and I am showing him what He gave me. I am sure He loves it in His book no less. I also have a second Bible for reading.” So whether you are new to Bible journaling or a card-maker looking for stamping ideas and techniques, we welcome both you and Penny as we celebrate another fun Friday with our fabulous friend.

This month Penny has created the look of dimension on her page but by cleverly masking with our Creative Die set, 51-397 Antique Frame, she’s kept everything one layer.

And scenic stamps aren’t just for cards… our transparent set, 30-450 Peaceful Winter, brings to mind the blessings, peace, and beauty of the season as Penny has demonstrated here.

One more thing… TGIF!

Wonderful Winter Wishes

November 22, 2017

Love soft snowy skies? You are in luck! This week Birgit Edblom joins us with a trio of card creations that will have you ready to bundle up and breath the cold, crisp air.

The road may look a bit icy, but the scenery is gorgeous in this winter wonderland created with our transparent sets, 30-450 Peaceful Winter and 30-453 Love & Peace.

Don’t you just love the soft color scheme of Birgit’s painted sunset?

Design Details: Birgit began by stamping her scene using Distress Inks onto Saunders Waterford High White HP watercolor paper. She then painted the scene using Daniel Smith watercolors, allowing some of the background stamping to bleed and blend with her paints. Diluted white acrylic paint was splattered onto the background to create the look of snow.

Snow Covered Village

November 21, 2017

Love soft snowy skies? You are in luck! This week Birgit Edblom joins us with a trio of card creations that will have you ready to bundle up and breath the cold, crisp air.

If you happen to live in this Snowy Village (40-558) then you better grab your sled and skis and head out to enjoy the day!

Birgit used unique design of this Slapstick/Cling stamp, which includes three separate stamps, to build her beautiful scene. To give it a vintage look, she added the die cut frame using our Creative Die set, 51-397 Antique Frame.

Design Details: Birgit began by stamping her village and trees using Ranger Archival ink onto Saunders Waterford High White HP watercolor paper. She then painted her scene using Daniel Smith watercolors. Once dry, she restamped the trees, very slightly offset, and heat embossed with white powder. She splattered diluted white acrylic paint to create the look of falling snow. The larger snowflakes were added with Liquid Pearls. Birgit cut her frame from textured cardstock and layered over her scene. Birgit recommends any of the following textured cardstocks: Paper Accent, Bazzill Linen Textured Cardstock, and/or Scrapberrys Canvas Cardstock.

One more thing! Don’t miss this week’s card on our SIMPLICITY site…

Soft Snowy Skies with Birgit

November 20, 2017

Love soft snowy skies? You are in luck! This week Birgit Edblom joins us with a trio of card creations that will have you ready to bundle up and breath the cold, crisp air.

Birgit achieved an instant scene by stamping our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-567 Restful.

The addition of the deer from our Creative Die set, 51-069 Together, and a hand trimmed star, give this card a homespun and heartfelt feeling.

Design Details: Birgit began by stamping her scene with Ranger Archival Ink onto Saunders Waterford High White HP watercolor paper. She then painted the entire background with Daniel Smith watercolors. Once dry, she splattered the background with diluted white acrylic paint to create the look of snow.   She painted her die cut critter with Daniel Smith Watercolors and adhered it to the scene. The hand trimmed star was embellished with glitter glue for extra sparkle.
