Romans 8:28

Good evening everyone! Hope everything's going well with you wherever you are at the moment. I wanna share with you today the card that I made yesterday wherein I used my new Brenda Walton Beyond Postmarks dp by K&Company!!!

Look how gorgeous the dp is:

It's very lovely, isn't it??!! Well, I got this paper from Windsor Cottage Botanicals at a very reasonable price! I was so excited that's why I decided to use it on this card.

I started with a Mellow Moss base, and I matted my Beyond Postmarks dp onto a Bravo Burgundy cs. Nope, I don't know how to use a sewing machine and I don't have one so I just did a faux stitching here. LOL! The stitches on the verse panel had to be criss-cross just like I did with the edges of the card but something wrong happened along the way that it ended up with an unknown kind of stitch! LOL!!

I stamped my ODBD Scripture Collection 1 verse onto Whisper White, cut with Labels Small then sponged with Versacolor Petal Pink and Misty Mauve. I finished off the card using Prima flowers, Kaiser flower (Dusty Pink) and Paper Rose which I think really complemented the yummy dp. :) This card goes to my favourites for sure! ;)

I will post my take on LSC236 later tonight when my migraine goes away. :( I have it since early this morning and it's very painful.

2nd Post for Today - ALTERED CADBURY CAN

Hello everyone! I'm here once again as I forgot to share with you an altered project I did a week ago. Yes, I altered a Cadbury Drinking Milk can. I was into organising my paper scraps when I found this Kaisercraft paper and decided to use it on this project.

I now used my Labels 4 die!! Yay!! I already have it!! I stamped my Darkroom Door (Melody Collection) sentiment onto Whisper White cs, then cut with Labels 4 die. I did some sponging on the edges using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink & then adhered the sentiment panel onto a Scalloped Oval die cut cs. Finished it off by stamping, cutting and adhering these two lovely butterflies from Darkroom Door (Wildflower Collection). Now I know that using a butterfly onto a project adds more beauty to it. No wonder I see a lot of cards using butterfly punches!! Hmmm.... =)

This is the before and after photo of my project:

You can use this as pens or markers holder/caddy or whatever you want to use it for. The possibilites are endless!! So, if you have cans or jars sitting there and just gathering dusts, it's time to get that creative juice flowing and convert those to lovely work of art. :)

Okay, as this is my 2nd post, try scrolling down so you can see my previous post for today.

Gotta eat lunch now!

Hugs to all!

SC244 When I Pray, You Answer Me

Yes. And that's our God...He hears and answers prayers. AND that's for SURE! :)

This card was done for the sketch challenge (SCS244) over SCS. The sketch is fairly simple but effective. I used both sides of my leftover Wild Raspberry dsp (K&Company) for this card. My Bible verse which is from ODBD Scripture Collection 2 was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, heat-embossed then die cut using Spellbinders Labels Small. I then sponged around the main panel while it's still inside the die then Cuttlebugged it using Floral Fantasy embossing folder.

I really like how it turned out. I guess this will be one of my favourites among the cards that I made (well, as of today, LOL!)

Thanks for the visit and hoping to hear any comments from you.

God bless us!

Bible Verse Cards

It's September!! Happy 1st day of Spring to everyone from Australia! Wow! Time really flies so fast..and before we know it, Christmas is already around the corner! Spring is one of my favourite times of the year, not only because of the blooming flowers but also because of its very lovely weather. Thank God for every seasons that He made. Everything's lovely!

Okay, let's get on with the cards that I made. I actually did 3 for the past 3 days and here they are:

The first two cards were actually made as Sympathy cards. My churchmate asked me to make one for her friend so I made two so she would be able to choose. I experimented on these actually. I didn't know what it's like to ran a heat-embossed image/sentiment to a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Well, it looked gorgeous! (as you can see, LOL!) I stamped the verses with Versamark and my ink colour of choice, heat-embossed with clear ep, die cut with Nestabilities then sponged around it while it's still inside the die and then ran it through the Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I did the same thing with the 3rd card:

I've been organising my paper stash last night when I saw this lovely dp from Imaginisce. And since I already have the Bible verse ready (stamped, sponged and die cut), I decided to make a card using this dp.

I tried to make it simple as I want the focus to be on the Bible verse not on anything else. I punched the corner using this SUPER bargain corner punch that I bought yesterday from Officeworks (they're in clearance). Yes, there are 3 corner punches/pack for only .99 cents!!!!! I've been seeing this corner punches before but they're a bit exy and they're not the Fiskars or EK Success type, no they're not. To give you an idea how they look like, I took a pic of the punches.

We went to Officeworks after I visited our LSS. I was looking for a binder for my stamps organization, I just bought an A4 2-ring binder as I'm still not decided really what sort of organization I'm going to use. We'll see how it goes.

Okay, time to do some house chores for now. Thanks for visiting and may you all have a blessed day!
