Matthew 11:28

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a different project than I normally make with my Ai images. I started bible journaling a year ago and I’ve had Ai’s Madge (1549) in mind all year to use for the Matthew 11:28 verse…“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11 28 close diane zechman

Madge is perfect for this verse…she illustrates how we all, at times, feel.  We simply need to put our trust in Him.  He gives what no one else can give- rest from our daily problems and the burden of our sins.

I stamped Madge with Stazon Black ink (no page prep done) and colored her with Prismacolor pencils, blending them with Gamsol. She was stamped again onto patterned paper and I cut out her shirt to paper piece it. I also used a small scrap of the same paper to make a little “tab” at the top of the page.

Here’s my full page… I also used used the following Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets.

All Your Heart, Decorative Banners, Words of Life- Common Words 1, Words of Life- Collection 1, Perfect Faith, Message of Hope.

I hope you liked this different Ai project today and it inspires you to try some bible journaling too!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

wear it in style

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the 4373- Birthday Hat Set.

This lady is another Ai image that is fun to paper piece…her dress is perfect for it and so easy to do!  I decided to put her in a black & white dress and let the cake and her accessories be pops of color.

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Peaceful Peonies stamp set from this month’s release.  I also used some butterflies from Floral Greetings.

The flower was stamped onto the background and then stamped again onto white cardstock, colored with Copics, and layered over the tag.  The butterfly has only one wing attached so it flutters off the card a bit.  I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly and flower center.

Have a great day!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

Are you keeping warm? I am staying inside so far…doing some laundry and a little bible journaling on this cold, windy weekend.  A music video that was shown in the beginning of a recent worship service was the inspiration for today’s page.  This page was done with the song “Magnify” by We Are Messengers in mind on Psalm 119:18.

Psalm 119 18 diane zechman

I traced the detective from a Googled image and colored him with Inktense pencils.  The background was sponged with Distress inks and the words were printed with some detective-y fonts I found- Fingerprints Inside and Earwig Factory.

I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Worthy King, Sing Loud, and Music To My Ears stamp sets.

Have a great weekend!

Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Let’s Watercolor” and we are featuring the fabulous new Art Impressions Watercolor Minis, Flowers, Foliage, and sentiments!  I’m so glad Bonnie added the sentiments to the line and the new Mini WC sets are so cute!

I don’t have the markers that Bonnie uses, but any water-based markers should work fine. I’ve been using my SU! markers since that is what I have in my supply. Here’s the colors that were used on my card.

hoppy Easter

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the 4754 – Hoppy Easter Set.  It has a few bunnies with eggs but it also has this cute little chick.

You may have noticed that my challenge card today has the same patterned paper. I found this piece of 12×12 paper that was cut into squares for a project a few years ago. I guess I thought the leftover pieces were too pretty to toss and left them in a box of unfinished cards.  The colors and fun floral pattern were perfect for my spring cards today.

I brushed some clear Wink of Stella onto the eggs for some sparkle and the chick’s arms & eggs were popped up!

I also have a sketch if you’d like to try this one.  :)

Good morning!  There’s some new stamps for March on the Sweet ‘n Sassy website.  If you haven’t seen them yet, go check them out.  I used a cute new set in the Creative Worship line today called Sing Loud.

I had a few scraps of patterned paper (left from a few projects that you’ll see on my blog later this week) and placed them together for a fun background.  The small banner and bird are popped with foam dimensionals.

Have a great day!

hello bunny

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with another card using the new Ai Easter set, 4886-Easter Blessings. I love the sweet images in this set and this time I chose the cute bunny relaxing in the flower for my card today.  I wanted this to be a general “hello” card rather than an Easter one so I used the sentiment from 4759- Hello Friend MTF.

hello bunny diane zechman

I decided to go with another CAS card with some vertical panels, using up a few patterned paper scraps.  It feels good to make use of them!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!
