A Card and A Winner!
This card was done for yesterday's color challenge on SCS. We were to use sage shadow, rose red and apricot. Now that is a color combo!
I really enjoyed the papertrey release party the other night... more details on that further down. I had papertrey in my head so I pulled out a few sets and combined them. This is Green Thumb, Beautiful blooms and the cake set combined. I first stamped my leaves in the sage color and used clear embossing powder and set them. I then stamped my red flowers and the frame for my sentiment and embossed them with clear. I then brayered over the entire thing with apricot chalk ink, making sure to have my darkest color to the edges and have the sentiment area the lightest (to draw your eye). Topped off with some ribbon from the discount bin at Michael's and the sentiment stamped in black chalk ink (colorbox) and I was done! I think it has a neat mod look.
OK, now the cool thing about the papertrey party. There was a lot of chit chat, but I seemed to be swept up in the conversation regarding Beth Moore. Now, I had never heard of her, but the girls on SCS were RAVING about her bible studies and video series. I was really interested and asked my hubby if he had heard of her that evening and he just shook his head no. Wouldn't you know it, as I was making coffee for the women's bible study group (that is my role, I am the coffee lady), I took a look at the books on the table for the classes being offered this term and wouldn't you know it......A Beth Moore study book was staring me in the face. I just knew in my heart it was meant for me. This is the first Beth Moore study our church has offered.
To make a long wonderful story short, I left my first class yesterday feeling very loved and pursued by God. I am looking forward to digging into this study. So thankyou to the SCS girls that mentioned Beth Moore! I believe your comments were meant for me! You can find Beth Moore studies and such HERE. Love it when my worlds collide (my stamping and my Jesus).
Ok, last thing, the blog candy! Thanks for all your kind comments, looks like the majority of you want to see more coloring tutorials, so I will get working on that!
The winner of the candy is:
Chris scrappin and stampin in texas!
Hi Sherrie! Congrats on your hits! I love your blog. I love any tutorials. Sometimes it is better to see if it is a lengthy tutorial. SC does help a lot, but if it involves lots of folding..a video is nic. But I LOVE any tutorials. Getting one of your cards would be tops though!! Love your work. Chris
So drop me an e-mail Chris with your addy and I'll get this prize out to you!
Have a wonderful day everyone,
