Happy Birthday Star Card

Make a fun, playful card for someone’s Happy Birthday. All you need are stars dies, cardstock in white and mirror silver, and an onion bag to add texture to the white cardstock. I’m using Neenah Solar White cardstock in 110lb for the cardbase and 80lb for the front panel and Scrapbook.com “Playful” cardstock paper pad for the stars. The mirror silver cardstock is from Craft Perfect by Tonic Studios. Use the star dies to cut out stars from colored cardstock, then layer the dies to cut out star frames. Next, use the onion bag and a die cutting machine with the embossing pad and plate to emboss the texture onto a piece of white cardstock measuring 5″ x 7″.

Layout the stars on the front panel in a way that is pleasing to your eye. I chose to use 3 stars two large and one small, along with a frame for the 2 larger stars. I offset the frames from the stars. Adhere those to your card panel. Then cut out the word Happy Birthday from mirror silver cardstock using the Scrapbook.com word dies and adhere them to your card panel. Trim the panel 1/8″ on all sides.

Then,, use some holographic border stickers to put a silver holographic border all the way around the cardbase. Finally, adhere the card panel to the cardbase. Viola, you’re done!

Cascading Flowers Card with Stickers from Dollar Tree

Simple, quick, and beautiful…just the way it should be to make a handmade card! That’s the way I’d describe the card for today. The flowers are 3_D Pop up stickers from the Dollar Tree.

As you can see from the image above, I deliberated between a sticker and a heat embossed word for the greeting. Which one do you like better?

This card was made using two colors of vellum: pink and frosted white. The pink was cut with a die from Avery Elle called, “Dotted Borders” which cuts a curved line. The curve isn’t visible once the card is complete, it simply gives us a guide for placing the flowers. I adhered the vellum with vellum adhesive from plus corporation.

Once the flowers were placed, I trimmed the white frosted vellum to size (about 5.5″ x 3″) and heat embossed the word “love” from a stamp set from the dollar tree. I show a word sticker as an option in the photos. Next, I put vellum adhesive only along the bottom edge of the frosted white vellum and put it on my card-base. I had to lift up a couple of the stickers and replace them but that was easy and didn’t cause a problem. Watch how the card was made in the video below:

Valentine’s Day or Special Occasion Card

Valentine’s Day is around the corner! Today’s card is perfect for the occasion or any special occasion! I made it using supplies from the December 2021 Card Kit of the Month from Spellbinders called, “Beauty Everywhere.”

I used two pieces of pattern paper from the kit along with the die cut shapes (the doily and the words and the sequins). The butterfly is a stamp from the kit that I stamped with versa mark ink and heat embossed with pink embossing powder. Now, I didn’t have an embossing powder that matched exactly the pink color already on the pattern paper, so I used a Zig Memory System waterproof marker in salmon to color over the embossed butterfly and wiped off the excess ink with my finger before the ink dried.

The bird and flowers were black and white, but I used a Zig clean color brush marker (watercolor marker) in light carmine and a paint brush with water to achieve the right color of pink for those images. I added some glittery shine to the breast of the bird with Scrapbook.com’s pops of color in glitter silver.

The pretty pink vertical border aligned with the black edge was die cut with the die and pink cardstock from the kit. (I just trimmed off part of the die cut, which you can see in the video below.

Cascading Butterflies Card

I’m making a beautiful card with some gorgeous butterfly stickers and pattern paper from the Spellbinder’s Card Kit of the Month for December 2021 called, “Beauty is Everywhere.” Now, I know it’s January, but I just got the kit due to shipping delays. I’ll be making several cards from this kit, so stay tuned.

It is actually a very simple card to make. I trimmed the blue pattern paper to 2.25″ x 5.5″. The orange pattern paper was trimmed on the left side to ensure the peacock was still visible after the butterflies where placed. The butterfly stickers come in the kit and all you have to do is choose which ones to use and how to lay them out on the card. I used a die that is in the shape of an S to cut the orange pattern paper and I aligned the butterflies along that edge, being careful to make sure I had room so they didn’t hang over the right edge. The ones at the top and bottom are purposefully placed so they hang over…I just cut the excess off. You can see this at the bottom of the image below.

The only thing left to do is stamp a greeting. The stamp comes in the kit along with others. I used a black ink to stamp it.

Love You Card

I have a sweet “Love You” card today. This card can serve as a Valentine’s Day Card, an anniversary card, or just to send someone you love a sweet card. I used several dies, two hues of cardstock, and pattern paper from the Simple Stories collection called, “My Valentine.”

The card base is an A2 size (4.25″ x 5.5″) and is made from Spellbinders Color Essentials cardstock in alabaster color. The green is 65 lb cardstock in a bright green. The fish tail banner is a frosted vellum I purchased from Paper Junkie on Amazon.com. I used several dies on this card. First, the pattern paper (name listed above) with the roses was cut with a postage stamp edged die from Hero Arts called Postage Stamp Infinity Dies. The vellum was cut with a banner die from Scrapbook.com called Nested Banners. The frame was cut with a die from Simon Says Stamp called Frames. The iridescent border on top of the vellum is from Love From Lizi in the UK.

The butterflies come from the same pattern paper as the roses, I just fussy cut them out. The LOVE YOU greeting also comes from the pattern paper. The gold hearts are peel-off stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs. You can see some of these items in the image below.

Valentine Tag Card

Using tags on cards creates a fun look and feel to handmade greeting cards. I like to make my own tags out of patterned paper (some people call it designer paper or printed paper, it’s just paper or cardstock that has a printed design on it) with tag dies like the ones below (affiliate link provided at no extra cost to you-I will receive a small portion of any purchase you make using the link):

Adding some embellishments on the card make it all the more attractive, which is what I did with the ribbon, stickers, and a marker to darken the greeting. Here is a look at the supplies I used.

These items are things I have had in my craft room for a while. I tend to use my supplies for what I need and then save it for later. That way, I always have something to use when the occasion arises. However, it also means that when I show it to you, some of the items may not be available. No worries! Use what you have. If you don’t have the exact pattern paper, use one with a similar theme and just create the same layout. Find coordinating embellishments, and viola, you’ll have your own creation.

The cardstock on this card is the Spellbinders Color Essentials cardstock in the colors: alabaster and pink sand. The panel behind the tag and the scalloped circle is pink vellum. The shiny, iridescent borders along the vellum’s edge is a peel-off border sticker from Love from Lizi in the UK. You’ll have to pay extra shipping and fees to get it, but it’s worth it in my opinion.

Psalm 19 Bible Journaling

Hello and Welcome! Today, I’m doing some bible journaling on Psalm 19. Read and study the bible online at https://www.blueletterbible.org/ Learn more about evidence for God at https://www.icr.org/

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

This is such a beautiful Psalm. It teaches us that no matter where we are on earth, or who we are, that we can all look up and see God’s glory in the heavens and in His creation. This means that His creation is evidence of His existence. We see it every day. Often, we wonder at it or are in awe of it’s beauty. This leads some to worship creation instead of the creator – such as those who worship mother nature in the new age philosophies or those that follow astrology. Instead, we should understand God’s awesome and infinite knowledge and power when we see creation. He loves us so very much. He created you for a reason. He has a purpose and plan for you.

Although we can see God’s handywork in creation, creation can’t testify to his salvation plan for you. His Word can…the Bible. Read it, all of it, without prejudice and you will learn of his love and mercy for you which he showed when Jesus came and died on the cross to take the punishment for your sins and was resurrected to show us that we can have eternal life too if we believe in Him and confess our sins and turn from them. Don’t wait. Jesus is coming back soon.
