Color By Faith Bible Journaling | Matthew 13:45-46

Joy Clair Stamps

Hello everyone… Today I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all from Gospel of Matthew chapter 13, verse 45-46. I love the truth that we can find from this passage.

the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!”

The Lord came to search for us and to find us. He left his own kingdom, came down to live among us and to die for us becuase He loves us so much and we are His “precious pearls.” Isn’t that one amazing truth?

I am sharing the project process at Joy Clair Blog today that I created using the new Color By Faith – Bible Journaling Stamp Sets: Pearl of Great Price Stamp Set and  Light Bulb Moment Stamp Set, Gelatos, VersaFine Clair Ink Pads, Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils, Deco Foil Transfer Gel, Deco Foil Sheet, and Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!

Leafy Wreath Thank You CAS Card

Hello everyone… Today I have a leafy wreath thank you card to share with you all.

This leafy wreath CAS card is not bulky though it has some layers of leaves. To create the wreath, I use the Trendy Leaves 2 Stamp Set and the Trendy Leaves 2 Coordinating Dies.

I created a watercolored paper with distress oxide ink pads and water using smooshing technique. And then after I dried it, I stamped the leaves with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink Pad. And then I cut them with the coordinating dies. I arranged those leaves and glued them with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set with Distress Ink Pad. Then I trimmed it into sentiment banner and added it on top of the wreath with adhesive glue.

I added some splatter paints using the Distress Ink and waterbrush.

My card today is inspired by the CUTplorations Challenge inspiration picture for this month:

Today, I am joining STAMPlorations design team and have created two tags to share with you all.

I use the Stitched Tags Nesting Dies – CUTplorations for the both tag bases. On the first tag above, I cut out a glitter silver cardstock with the tag nesting dies.

I use the Joyful Christmas – Typografia Christmas Stamp that I stamped on a watercolored paper with Rockin’ Red Catherine Pooler Ink Pad. After that, I sketch a Christmas Tree shape outline with pencil, and I cut it with scissors. I added some shadow around the tree with Grass Skirt Catherine Pooler Ink Pad using sponge dauber. I added the tree on the tag with dries clear I adhesive glue.

I created a watercolored paper with the Rockin’ Red Ink Pad, and then I made the mini bow using the We R Memory Keeper 3D Bow Maker. I added it on the tag with same adhesive glue.

I tied up the green/white baker’s twine on the tag.

On the second tag, I cut out the tag base with the tag nesting die out of the heavyweight white cardstock. And then, I use the Holly Background – ARTplorations Stencil and Distress Crayons (Festive Berries and Peeled Paint) to create that background. I added the crayon on the stencil and then using baby wipe to blend it in. After that, I added some splatters on it using the Distress Crayon Metallic Antique Bronze and watercolor brush. I dried it with craft heater.

I stamped the Blessed Christmas – Typografia Christmas on a heavyweight white cardstock with Memento Rhubarb Stalk In Pad and then I cut it out with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.  I added it on the tag with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I added the ribbon and mini wood clip on the tag.

DIY Mini Hoop Ornament | Dreaming of Christmas

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… One of my favorites Christmas projects to make is ornament. And today, I have a mini hoop ornament to share with you all.

I made these mini hoop ornaments couple of years ago with stamps and diecuts for my kid’s teacher gifts. But this mini hoop ornament, I created using the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp, one of the new digital stamps and the Holiday Tradition Digital Papers from Graciellie Design.

I love using the Silhouette Print-and-Cut feature when working with digital stamps. It enables me to print the image and then cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.

First, I open the poinsettia cone bouquet image from the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp with my Silhouette Studio Designer software, resized it to fit on the mini hoop, and then I created the cutting line with Trace Tool.

Before I printed it, I turned on the Print-n-Cut feature on the Silhouette.

I printed them on a Mixed Media paper with Canon inkjek printer.

After the printing, I put it on Silhouette Cutting Mat and cut it with Silhouette Cameo.

I dried the image with craft heater just to make sure the ink is really dry before the coloring.

I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens. These brush pens blend really well even without water.

I printed the musical pattern from the Holiday Tradition Digital Papers from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock.

I use the mini hoop to trace the circle on the printed paper and then I cut it with scissors.

I added it on the hoop with permanent dries-clear glue and I added couple clear stamping blocks to hold it down until the glue completely dry.

I scribble some of the Tim Holtz Gold Distress Crayon at all the side of the hoop and use my finger to blend it creating that gold shadow on the paper.

I added the poinsettia cone bouquet on the hoop with the permanent dries-clear glue and let it dried.

And then I printed the sentiment from the Dreaming of Christmas Digital Stamp on a white cardstock, added it on the hoop with the same permanent glue, and then trimmed off the extra paper.

I added some of the Tim Holtz Gold Distress Crayon on the sentiment edges and then blended it with finger.

I added some of the natural burlap twine on the hoop screw and it is done. I hope you all like this project. I will make more with other digital stamps for gifts.

Gracie has a huge sale going on at her Etsy store right now. You can get the digital stamp set I use today also on this Christmas Bundle Sale that you can save 50% Off on those 4 sets!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a fabulous day!!!
