Shabby Chic Card for Word Art Wednesday #250-251

Yep, you all know it's that time again for another Word Art Wednesday!   Lately, that seems to be all I'm sharing.  Now, mind you, I'm not complaining about that.   I'm so thankful to be a part of the Word Art Wednesday design team.   I just know that with how busy I've been,  I wouldn't make time to craft at all if it weren't for my commitment to this team.  I tend to put everything else first, I tell myself that I'll get time to craft later.  Once later rolls around, I'm usually too tired.  
With that being said,  I'm so grateful to get the chance to make at least a few cards a month.  And what better way to spend my craft time then to create using beautifully designed Word Art.  I'm always so inspired to create and thankful to meditate on the meaning of God's word. 
I encourage all you card makers out there to come join in the challenge.  Our challenges are always "anything goes" and you're not required to use the Word Art to participate. 
Here is my card creation for this week's Word Art Wednesday:

Misty D. Designs

I just love this verse!  This is such a faith-affirming verse!  To know what my God has said will be done,  what He has decreed will happen,  and His word will never change.  God is not fickle about what He has said... therefore He is a God I can completely trust!  

Misty D. Designs

I went for the girly, vintage look with this card.   I guess not creating for awhile made me want to use a lot of my goodies. :)  
The flowers used here are from the Recollections line at Micheal's Craft Store and The Paper Studio line from Hobby Lobby.  The Pearls are from Prima Marketing.   

Misty D. Designs

I used papers both from My Minds Eye and DCWV.  
The lace trim is found in dollar bins at Micheal's Craft Store and I think that's where I got the resin flower as well. 
Lastly, I finished the card by adding Nuvo Crystal drops around the edge of the ornate frame. 
It was so nice to get back in my craft room, and I had so much fun making this card. 
Thank you for stopping by to take a look today, I hope you've learned a little about my God and have been inspired to go create for the King of Kings. 

Blessings,

Another Word Art Wednesday Card Using Vellum

Welcome!  It's time for Word Art Wednesday # 248-249!
You all know how much I love making pretty things for Word Art Wednesday.  It truly is one of the most rewarding design teams to be a part of.   Karen works so hard to keep this challenge blog going.  I don't know how she does it.  I can hardly find the time to keep this little blog going.   I'm really going to try to post more often.  I have so many ideas of things that I'd like to share with you all.  Hopefully soon, but until then, I'm going to keep enjoying Word Art Wednesday and I'm thankful for the fact that, at least for now, designing for Word Art Wednesday is what is getting me in my craft room! 
Here is the card I made for this week.

Misty D. Designs

I had a lot of fun with this card.  I used lots of textures on this card, between the burlap, vellum, lace and sequins, it's all there! 
Once again, my color palette was inspired by the fall colors right outside my window.  I just love this time of year. 

Misty D. Designs

I used the same Hiedi Swapp Vellum that I used on these two cards seen here.  I think vellum will be making a regular appearance around here, it's just so versatile.  I know I've only scratched the surface of what can be done with it.  I chose, this time, to use a border punch on the vellum, I then used dimensional foam tape to adhere the vellum to the card base.  (it's hiding under the flower stickers) . I also once again used my Nuvo Crystal drops only, this time, I used the color raspberry pink.  

Misty D. Designs

And once again, another precious verse from God's word.  Aren't they all precious?!  What an awesome thing to be reminded of, that even the mountains and the hills will not continue on as long as our God's promise of peace and mercy to His children.  That is just so encouraging to me as I sit and meditate on this verse!  
I'd love to have you join the challenge at Word Art Wednesday this week.  I enjoy seeing all of your creativity.  I don't always get a chance to comment on all the cards, but please know that I love to have you all play along.  
The Word Art is free to use, but you're not required to use it. 
Thank you for stopping by today and for your sweet words of encouragement.  I hope you've been inspired to go create for the King today!

Blessings,
I've joined the following challenges:

My Quick Card For Word Art Wednesday #246-247

Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  We're half way through the week.  This has been a very busy week for me as I've begun working at my daughter's school this week.  I'm not quite yet used to this new schedule and I'll admit I'm having trouble keeping up with everything.   This week's Word Art Wednesday literally snuck up on me.  I hurried home from work and put this card together just in time to snap a picture before I lost sunlight.  I didn't manage to get any detail photos this week.  So, just the one picture.  I'll admit, making a card like this, when the pressure is on stretches my creativity in a good way.   Here is my card for this week.

Misty D. Designs

I was inspired this week by the fall colors beginning to make an appearance.  I'm starting to get into that fall mood.  It's such a beautiful time of year.   It's such a blessing from God that He would see fit to give us the changing seasons.  This verse is a sweet reminder that no matter the season of life we're in our true hope and 'expectation' comes only from God.   
I hope you'll join us this week at Word Art Wednesday.  I just love seeing what creative beauty you all come up with .  The challenge is always anything goes, and you're not required to use the word art, but we love it when you do. :) 
Thank you for stopping by my little crafty space today.
Blessings,

Proverbs 24: 3-4 Cards for Word Art Wednesday

Hi,Y'all! 
It's time once again for Word Art Wednesday!  I can't believe how quickly this summer has flown by, I've barely had the time to keep up with this blog and my design team commitments.  I don't know about you, but I'm beginning to feel ready for a more normal routine again.  Hopefully, I'll post more once that happens.  Hopefully, (wink, wink). 
I've really missed having time to spend in my craft room just creating, and meditating on God's word.  It's getting to be so bad that I've begun to shun my housework just so I can spend some time playing with papers.  Shame on me, I know, but doing that allowed me to make 2 Word Art Wednesday Card designs.  So, it can't be all bad, right? :) 

Misty D. Designs

This is the first card I created.  I had some new products on my desk that I'd yet to play with and finally got the chance to use them on this card.  I printed the Word Art onto a piece of Heidi Swapp Vellum.  I've never used vellum before, I really enjoyed it and have so many more ideas for future use.  When I saw this weeks' Word Art selection, I already knew what paper I would use.  I've been holding onto this sweet paper from Simple Stories since the Let's Create Expo I attended back in April!  It fits the verse perfectly!

Here is a close up of another new product I've been playing with lately. These adorable, little wood veneer hearts from The Paper Studio.   You may have seen me use them on my last Word Art Wednesday card.  You'll probably continue to see them, I apologize, but I'm kinda hooked. :)

Misty D. Designs

This is the second card I made.  I still had all my goodies out on my desk and just couldn't resist making another.   I used the same paper ephemera from Simple Stories, a little washi tape, and a new product I just received from Scrapbook.Com, called Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Have you heard of them?  Maybe I'm the last to know about these, but I think this product will be making a regular appearance in my work from here on out.  I love the pretty, little almost enamel looking drops.  

Misty D. Designs

You can see the crystal drops a little better in this close up. The color I used is called Duck Egg Blue.  It's such a soft blue that the drops are almost white.   I went a little crazy adding the liquid drops all over my card. They're just too fun!   And, yes, more wood veneer hearts. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you've been encouraged and inspired to create for the King!  
I invite you to link up your creations over at Word Art Wednesday.  The Word Art is free to use, but not required.  I just love seeing what you all come up with . 

Blessings,
