Expect Miracles

Hope you are having a wonderful morning. The sun is shining which is a blessing.
This is another sample I made for my local craft shop. I used two of the Crafter's Companion embossing folders and two Sizzix dies. The stamp is from Club Scrap. 
Have a great day.

As water reflects the face,
so one's life reflects the heart.

Easter card

Hope you are having a good Lent. I am doing the Do Lent generously: 40 Acts. It has been really wonderful to do something positive for Lent to get me closer to God and people. 
This is an Easter card I made as a request. The main image was stamped and embossed twice and the flowers and banner cut out and decoupaged. The image was coloured with watercolours. I used one of my new embossing folder for grey strip and added gilding wax to it.

In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.

New embossing folders

Got myself a few of the new crafter's companion embossing folders and I  really like them. Have been working on some samples for my local craft shop and this one of the things I created. The photo is my Skipper and I think she looks beautiful in pink. The flower was made by cutting the large tattered floral and leaves die and stamped with selection of crafter's companion stamps and them embossed with two different folders. Have a great day and thanks for the visit.

Apply your heart to instruction
and your ears to words of knowledge.

Dragon card

When I first saw these stamps by Sheena Douglass I just had to have them and my DH bought them
for Valentines. The background was done with Bursho crystals (made this about two years ago) and edged with distress inks. Don't know about you but this happens a lot, I make backgrounds and they stay on my desk for years until the right project comes along. The images were stamped and coloured with water colours and cut out. It does look better in real life. 
Have a great day and thank you for visiting.

Cat nap card

Bought this stamp a few years ago and only used a couple of times, so I dusted it off today. The stamp is from Stamps Happen Inc. and called Cat Nap and was stamped and embossed. It was coloured with watercolours and then put onto an embossed mat ( using my new crafter's companion hessian folder). The background paper has been in my stash for over 7 years. The sentiment stamp is from crafter's companion. Have a great day and thanks for the visit.

My Valentines card for DH

Hope everyone had a lovely Valentines day.  This is the card I made for my DH. The owl is a Marianne die, the leaves are LeCreat dies and the sentiment was cut out with a Heartfelt creations die. The background was made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and edged with Pebeo gilding wax. 
Have a great Sunday.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness had not overcome it.

Hope you are having a good day. Yesterday I decided to give my tissue box a make-over. I used some background paper I created with liquid watercolours and watercolour paper on top of black gesso base. The flowers (Sheena Douglas stamps) were stamped, embossed and coloured with watercolours. They were then shaped and painted with studio multi-medium (gloss). Both the background paper and flowers were made some time ago and I knew that one day I would find the perfect project from them. Hope you have a lovely day.

Birthday card

It's my mother's birthday later this month so I made her a card. This  image is a free digital stamp from Beccy at Beccy's Place, which was printed onto textured card. Once printed it was coloured with alcohol markers and some stickles glitter glue was added to the flowers. I used one of my new Memory Box dies (Stitched rectangle layers) to cut it. The background stamp is from La Blanche and the sentiment is from Stampendous. Thank you for visiting.

Good luck

We finally have a bit of snow! Made this card yesterday. The background was made using glimmer spray (applied with a brush) then over stamped with Artistic Stamper background stamp. The flowers and leaves (Dienamic dies) were die cut and coloured using Memento inks. The good luck is from a set of sentiment dies by X-cut (cuts really well). 
I don't know about you, but with all the things going on in the world at the moment, I  take comfort from the words of the Psalm below. Have a great day and be filled with peace.

The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Psalm 29:11
