WAW#40 Psalms 33:1

When the Lord tells you to Rejoice-you need to REJOICE!  We have so much to be thankful for.  If we truly started writing down everything-we would be "mind boggled"!  Just being able to share God's love with others on our blogs is a blessing.  In other countries they can't mention God.  Our freedom of religion is truly something we shouldn't take for granted. 

If you like to use scripture or encouraging sentiments-our challenge is for YOU!  Word Art Wednesday is where you'll find our FREE WORD ART that my design team & I have used this week.

Our sponsor this week is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  It's always nice to win something.
 This week I did a technique I saw online. Using distress ink in 3 colors I sponged them on my white card stock.  Then I spritzed Stampin up smooch on top & while it was still wet, used a background stamp with circles (My Mind's Eye-Everyday Fun)several times to give the smooch more dimension.
The flowers started out white as well.  Distressed & layered two of them. On the top one I stamp the center using a new stamp set from Market Street Stamps "Life is Beautiful"

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
