Glory to God in the Highest!

Taken from Luke 2:14, this verse and the image stamped were both from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps. The verse is from their Christmas Scripture set and the image is from Jesus is Born set.

I actually experimented on this as I was thinking of other colours to go with silver. So I decided to use SU! Night of Navy which I think looked well with my Bazzill Bling in silver. The image was stamped with Versacolor Silver and heat embossed with clear ep while the sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy ink.

The image panel was cut using my Spellbinders Mega Curve Rectangles which I recently purchased from Bizzy Becs. Then while still inside the die, I then sponged some Bashful Blue ink and Night of Navy for more depth.

Here's a close-up shot:

Thanks so much for looking! Got this card done yesterday morning and this will go to my personal Christmas cards to be given to family and friends. I've been busy finishing Christmas cards orders and I haven't even filled up my personal stash yet!! So now, my aim is to slowly build up my Christmas cards...I'll get there by the grace of God. :)

My family and I weren't able to go to our Friday Bible study last night as I wasn't really feeling well. It's that time of the month and I was feeling so differently that I couldn't barely stand up because of the lower abdomen pain. I wasn't able to do anything from afternoon 'til night but lie down and praying that the pain would go away. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling a bit better..thank God!

This is all for now. I will be finishing card orders to be delivered tomorrow so I have to sit and stamp now otherwise I wouldn't get anything done. :)

God bless us all and happy Saturday!

WT242 Purple Pretties!!

This week's Ways to Use It Challenge set by Julia is Purple Pretties -- that is to use purple in your card! Would you believe that I was on the finishing stage of this Christmas card when Julia posted the challenge over SCS?? YAY! It's a jackpot! My card fits the challenge so right!! Purple!

The sentiment is from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps' Jesus is Born set. I stamped it using Versacolor Violet, heat-embossed with clear ep then cut with Spellbinders Labels 4. I sponged around it with Versacolor Hyacinth while it's still inside the die, embossed it with Birds and Swirls embossing folder then spritzed a bit of Glimmer Mist Pearl. I also used a purple sheer/organdy ribbon on this card. To make it more Christmasy, I again used my Create a Flake 1 to make these cute snowflakes. ;) I sponged Hyacinth ink to my snowflakes then generously glued some MS Crystal Fine glitter. I then finished it off with some purple rhinestones by Kaisercraft. The lovely dp is also from Kaisecraft Lilac Avenue Collection - Sweet Pea.

Thanks for the visit and hope you'll all have a blessed day!

Happy stamping!

All That Sparkles!

Good morning! Today's card is one of the two that I've done yesterday and this is a Christmas card with non-traditional colours and is sparkling! LOL!

This card is also my entry (my very first!) to Simon Says Stamp Weekly Challenge. I uploaded this to SCS and the kind Steph (of Simon Says) mentioned to me that their current challenge is about getting sparkly and that my card qualifies for it. Wow! It's so exciting as I posted my card the same day they posted their challenge so...yeah, I guess I'm in. :) I haven't been to their blog and it's also my first time to visit it and I bet I will be visiting it often and try to join their weekly challenges..hopefully. :)

Oh! Here's my card btw,

Look at those colours! I mean, nothing beats green and red for Christmas but it's good to know that other colours can look Christmasy, too! The dp that I used is from My Mind's Eye "Snowflake Stripes" (Colourful Christmas collection). I coloured Tilda using the colours from it using a combination of Copics and Prisma pencils. (NOTE! Always use Copic first then Prisma pencils when colouring).

Here's a close up shot of my sparkly Tilda and snowflake (which I made using Create a Flake 1 by Spellbinders).

Okay, I'll see you again later as it's my DS2's turn to use the computer. Thanks for the visit!
Have a blessed day!

Luke 2:10 Christmas Card

I have finished two cards last night and these are part of the Christmas orders that I'm currently doing. The first one is just a very simple card with a simple lay out but with a powerful verse which was taken from Luke 2:10. The verse was from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps Scripture Collection which was stamped with Versamagic Sage and heat embossed with clear ep. I then cut it with cicle Nestabilities then sponged around it with Versafine Narcissus and SU! So Saffron while still inside the die. I then matted it with a bit bigger circle which I cut using my Fiskars circle cutter with a circle template. The rest of the mats were cut using Circle Scalloped Nestabilities. I finished off the card with a Cuttlebug Vintage corner die cut on the upper left side and a Poinsettia flower (from Prima Festive Christmas) with a pearl on the center. I also spritzed a bit of Glimmer Mist Pearl to the verse panel for an effect (which unfortunately couldn't be seen here).
I will be posting my 2nd card later as my craft table is soo messy at the moment and is needing some cleaning and a bit of organising before I can sit and stamp.
Thanks for visiting and I'll see y'all on my next post.
