Word Art Wednesday Psalms 147:4

I'm excited to share with the other ladies at Word Art Wednesday this month!
I'm filling in for one of their regular designers.  It's such a pleasure!
 
They have FREE scripture every week that you can use (it's not required-but why wouldn't you use something that's free?) 
 
Here's my card I designed for this weeks scripture Psalms 147:4.
 
 
I started with plain white cardstock.   I printed the scripture and cut it so it would be card front size.
I embossed the gold stars.  The stamp is an old Stampin up one I had in my stash.  Anytime I need stars-I pull it out!
The tree is another Stampin Up stamp-I wanted it to look like it was in the background-used crumb cake ink.
Then I got to work with my distress inks and a sponge. 

My card came in handy-there's a friend of mine going thru a very difficult illness.  She needed some encouragement.  How much more encouraging is it to know if God named and keeps up with the stars-how much more he loves and keeps up with us!

I hope you'll hop over and submit your creation!  They always have generous sponsors with great prizes!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!

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!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

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.
