I Love Your Joyful Spirit

Here is Paper Smooches January 2017 challenge - COZY, below is the inspiration photo:

And here is Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes for challenge weeks #264-265, Below is this week's word art:

I made a card to attend the above two challenges. Here is the finished card:

I used Paper Smooches "Crystal Clear" stamp and die set to make this card. I dry embossed the vase dies on the kraft cardstock. Then, I cut two vases (left and right) from another piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped flower and leaves in white pigment ink and colored with color pencils. I also applied white pigment ink on the three vases and colored with color pencils. The blue vase was glued down into the dry embossed area and the green vase was attached with foam tape to create the dimension. I used the Q-tip to apply white ink through the stencil and white embossed the greeting (from "Spiritual Sampler" set) to finish the card. Below is another look of the card:

Cardstock: Neenah (kraft), MTF (white)
Stamps: Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Stampin' Up, Versamark
Dies: Paper Smooches
Others: stencil (Tim Holtz), prisma color pencils, white embossing powder, foam tapes

Thank you for visiting my blog.

  2. Wow, this is fantastic! Thank you for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Our current challenge is still ongoing and we would love to have you participate again. I would like to share this passage from the Bible coming from Hebrews 6:11-12 which says, "We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." Have a blessed week.
