Joy Clair Mardi Gras Event 2018

Joy Clair Clear Stamp

Hello everyone… Welcome to Joy Clair Mardi Gras Event 2018! Lent Season is tomorrow! It starts on the same day with Valentine’s Day this year. I hope you all, who are going to do Lent, will be blessed with wisdom and strength. May God bless you richly with His love and grace as you come to seek Him in His presence every day!

Today I am joining the Joy Clair team for this special event to share project inspired by the Mardi Gras image, celebration, colors, shapes, or anything…The team has prepared lots of inspirations for you!

Joy Clair Mardi Gras Event 2018

You can see all the inspirations at Joy Clair Blog. When I looked at the Mardi Gras photo inspiration I am inspired by the colors and I created this New Baby Congrats Card using the New Baby Stamp Set.

Joy Clair Mardi Gras Event 2018 - New Baby Congrats Card

I go with clean-and-simple style for this card. The papers I used are from Crate Paper Little Baby Boy 6×6 Paper Pad and plain colored cardstocks are from Darice Crafts.

I picked the green/purple polkadots paper for the background mat that I added it on the black card base with adhesive glue. Next, I die cut the yellow cardstock with Oval Stitched Rows Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs. Then I added it on the card with adhesive glue.

And using Versafine Onyx Black and Mini MISTI, I stamped the baby onesies from New Baby Stamp Set with  on the yellow chevron patterned paper, I stamped the heart image on the purple cardstock, and then I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock.

And then I fussy cut the heart and onesie with micro-tip scissors. Then I added them on the card with 3D foam tape. I added some extra glitter on the heart with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen.

I trimmed the sentiment into a banner, and added it on top of the onesies. Since it already pop up, I glue the middle on the onesie, and then glued the edges of the banner on the oval die cut panel.

The card is done. I hope you enjoy this project today 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. May you all have a fabulous day!

Sending You Love

Hello everyone… Valentine’s Day is 2 days away! I bet you all can smell and feel the love is in the air more… 😀 Today I have a Valentine’s Day Card, Sending You Love…

Sending You Love Valentine's Day Card

I created this card for a swap crafty friend in February. I sent it out early this week 🙂 The stamp set, postage die set and love word die are from the newest Stamp of Approval – Love Is In The Air. I used the in-laid diecutting technique with those dies.

I stamped 2 sentiment phrases from the SOA stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black using my Mini MISTI on a white cardstock and trimmed them down into word stripes. And I added on the card with 3D foam tape.

I added some splatters on the card using Silver Finetec Watercolor Paint and fan brush.

And then I embellished the card with some heart die cuts that I cut out using Our Daily Bread Designs – Hearts Dies. I finished this card with some clear gem also.

The white, black, and colored cardstocks I used to make this card today are from Darice Crafts.

The card is done and I hope you all can enjoy it as much as I enjoy making it 🙂 THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today! May all of your hearts, mind and days be filled with love… HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Happy Saturday! I hope you all have a fabulous week so far… Today I have a Bible Journaling on Ephesian 1:11-14 to share with you all.

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.”

Ephesians 1:11-14

In these verses you can find the truth and confirmation that only in Him, of Him, and through Him we can find assurance of our salvation, inheritance in Christ and promises. No one else in this world can do that to us. Only GOD can. He does that only through Christ alone.

Our family lost 2 dear family relatives this month. We were sad but also at the same time we have hope and joy knowing that both of them lived their lives trusting and had their faith in Christ Jesus. We will miss them a lot!

My prayer for you today that you find confident, hope and faith in Christ alone. No matter in what situation or circumstance you are in right now, seek Him in His presence where you receive the blessings He has provided for you today. Praise Him in your situation for who He is and what He has done in your life in the past, for He is faithful God and God of hope. He can save you today!

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

To journal this truth in my journaling Bible today, I created a vellum insert using one of the new digital stamp from Graciellie Design. You can create any projects using this In Christ Alone Digital Stamp.

First, I open the flower file and sentiment file with Silhouette Studio Design Software on my computer. You can use all Graciellie Design digital stamps with any picture editing programs and even Word program.

On the Silhouette Studio, I drew a rectangle with the size of the journaling Bible page. Next, I copied and pasted the flower twice and positioned them at each corner of the page. Then I copied and pasted the phrase and positioned it in the middle of the page. I resized and moved them around to fit the page and once I was happy with it, I printed the design on a vellum paper using inkjet printer in black and white.

I let the printed page to dry over night. You can always use craft heater to dry the ink only the down side of this technique is that the paper is large and will wrinkle.

I then colored the flowers with ShinHan Touch Twin makers. And after the inks were dry, I sprinkled some white acrylic spray paint on it using fan brush for extra snowy look on it.

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

Once all mediums were dried well in few minutes, I trimmed it down using the rectangles lines as the guide. I added the vellum insert page on the Bible using ScorTape 1/8″ double-sided tape.

I hope you find this tutorial easy to follow and inspire you to keep journaling God’s words in creative way to express your love to Him.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today. May you have a blessed day!
