Journey Blog Hoppers- Faith Journey

Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop!  This month's theme is Faith Journey.  I'm so happy you're hop pin' along!  If you arrived from Ruth Cooper's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too!  Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

Now, let's get to my projects.  First let me share the card I created.  I started with a Whip Cream Cardstock base.  I then cut a piece of Beach Ball, Beach Breeze and Catalina Splash Cardstock for the layers.  I then cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.  I stuck the Bible Print stickers to the piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
I then took the Party Pop PanPastels in blues and created the background, right over the stickers.  I then took the white PanPastel from the same set and created the highlighted area over the fish.
Next, I stamped the sentiment from Trust the Lord stamp set with Catalina Splash ink on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock that I matted with a piece of Catalina Splash Cardstock.
I then wrapped a piece of Catalina Splash Satin Ribbon around the one corner of the card and popped this layer up with foam squares.

I then wanted to use the same technique on my bible page.  Using the Bible Print sticker of the candle, I placed it on the bible page.  I then colored the candlestick with the Gold Pencil from the Color Burst pencils.  I used a Citrus Cooler, Lemon Drop and Pineapple Smoothie pencil to shade in the flame.
I then used the Mother Nature PanPastels green colors and the Rich SorbetsPanPastel brown color to create the path on the page.
To finish the page, I added some Gold Pan Pastels over the top of the candlestick to add some more sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are inspired by my creations.  Please don't forget to click the Next button to continue on the hop with Becky Lemire's blog.

This month we are excited to have two Awesome Guest Hoppers that you should definitely check out.
So, I can't wait to share with you what I created.  First the card.
I started with a piece of Buttercream Cardtstock and a layer of Green Olive Cardstock.  I embossed the Green Olive with the Embossing Folder Say It!  I then distressed the edges and the top raised areas with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
Then, I stamped each of the leaves from the Autumn Days stamp set with Dark Roast ink on Cranberry Bliss, Summer Days and Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I also stamped with Dark Roast ink, the sentiment from the Grateful Heart ATS on ButtercreamCardstock.  I then detail cut all these pieces out.
Using my Crease tool, I bent the leaves in the middle and curled the edges to bring them to life.  I then distressed them with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
To finish the card, I wrapped Natural Journey Twine around the card and tied a Wooden Accent button on.
Now on to the project. 
I first took a Styrofoam wreath and wrapped it with tan felt.  I then wrapped a piece of light brown burlap around the wreath.  I used the same materials that I used above to create this fall inspired wreath.  I then used some raffia to create the bow and the hanger.
Here is a little close up on the leaves.
And even closer look at the sentiment.   I used the Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst pencils to color in the "berries" on the sentiment.

No words can Expresso...

It's the last day of the hop and I have my favorite card of all today!  I just love this sentiment.
The base of the card is Buttercream Cardstock.  I then cut a layer of Hazelnut Blend and another layer of Buttercream Cardstock.  I adhered the Hazelnut Blend piece to the card.  I then made my own background paper using the coffee cup from Hey Sugar stamp set by stamping with Hazelnut Blend ink on the Buttercream Cardstock.  Before adhering this piece to the card, I ripped the one corner off and distressed the edges with Hazelnut Blend ink.  I added a little bit of Rich Sorbet PanPastel to the cups.
I then took a strip of Thanksgiving Prints and ripped on the end, distressed the edges with Hazelnut Blend ink and adhered it to the card.  
I tied a Journey Natural Twine bow around the side of the card.  I then took Dark Roast silk and splattered it over the card.
To finish the card I stamped my sentiment from Hey Sugar on Buttercream Cardstock with Hazelnut Blend ink.  I also distressed the edges with Hazelnut Blend ink.

Today I have another card for the Blog Hop, but this one puts a smile on my face.  Check out the sentiment?  Love it!
The base of the card is Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I then cut a layer of Thanksgiving Prints and adhered it to the base.  I then cut a strip of another piece of Thanksgiving prints and adhered this to the middle of the card.  I then wrapped a piece of Journey Natural Twine around the whole card and tied a knot.  I then threaded the twine through a Wooden Accent Button and tied another knot.
Next, I die cut two Journey Circles from Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Hey Sugar on one with Cocoa Powder ink.  The other one, I cut in half.  I distressed all of the edged with  Cocoa Powder ink.
To finish the card, I adhered the two half circles to the card and used foam squares to adhere the sentiment circle.  I then used Dark Roast silk and splattered the whole card.  Enjoy!

I like Big cups....

Today's card is a little mixed media, but I love the results!
The base of the card is Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I then cut a layer of Cocoa Powder Cardstock.  On this piece, I used the Rings Stack Stencil and Journey Modeling Paste to create the background.  When it was fully dry (I usually let pieces dry over night), I took Rich Sorbet PanPastels and colored the modeling paste.  I tied a Oatmeal Cookie Satin Ribbon bow around the piece and adhered it to the card base.
Next, I die cut a Journey Circle from Buttercream Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hey Sugar set with Cocoa Powder Ink.
To finish the card, I added a few Spring Accent Dots.  Enjoy!

Can You Case It? #139

A rainbow of colors is the theme today at the Can You Case It? Challenge Blog.
Here is the card I created using PanPastels.
I started the card by cutting a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock at 5 3/8 X 4 1/8.  I then took my different PanPastels from Rich Sorbet and Party Pop collections to create the rainbow across the Whip Cream Cardstock piece.
I then adhered this piece to the card base made from River Stone Cardstock.  I then die cut the largest heart from the Decorative Hearts die set from River Stone cardstock. I adhered the card to the card base with glue and wrapped and tied the side of the heart with Whip Cream Thread.
I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Beautiful Wings with River Stone ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I adhered this piece to the card using foam squares.  I then added a few rhinestones.  Enjoy!
