Gold and Blush Card For Word Art Wednesday #288-289

Hi, everyone!
So, I'm suffering from what I think is writer's block today.  I literally sat staring at the screen for a good ten minutes trying to think of something to write, anything.... sadly, nothing!  So, I'll just hop right into sharing my card design for Word Art Wednesday

Misty D. Designs

I used paper from My Minds Eye C'est Chic collection.  It looks like more of a blush color in person.

I printed the verse onto vellum and cut it the exact size as the stripe on my base paper. The vellum strip is wrapped around the base paper then adhered on the backside with Scotch tape. I tore some strips of arrow paper, also from the same paper line and machine stitched it to the base paper.  I then gold embossed some little wooden hearts from The Paper Studio and adhered them to my card.  That's it!  Vellum can be a little tricky to work with.  I'm still fairly new at creating with it and I hope to learn more techniques.  It can be so pretty.
I just love the way the gold shines on this paper too...

I invite you to come join us at Word Art Wednesday and show us what you've got!  The word art is always free to use, but not required to play.

Nautical Card for Word Art Wednesday

Welcome back!  It's officially my first week of summer break and what better way to start it off then with a new Word Art Wednesday card.  Woohoo!  I just love summer,  the early mornings and late nights.  The birds, the flowers,  the free time to enjoy God's creation.    I'm truly a summertime girl at heart.  I must be excited about this time of year as my card creation reflects where my favorite place to be is.  Can you guess?

If you guessed the beach, then you would be right. 😊
But even with all that I love about summer and all there is to enjoy and be thankful for, I'm still left with a longing that nothing on this earth can satisfy.   An emptiness only Christ Himself can fill.  I'm reminded of a quote from the late C.S. Lewis. 
 "I have found a desire within myself that no experience in this world can satisfy; the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

We were made to "worship and enjoy God forever".   Praise God that He has promised to fill us up with what truly satisfies, HIMSELF.

The base paper for my card is from Hobby Lobby's brand of paper products called "The Paper Studio".  It's from their "mint to be fab" line. 
Then I added stickers from my stash.  I kept it pretty simple this week.

My Simple Card for Word Art Wednesday #284-285

Hi, Friends!
Welcome back.   Yes, once again I'm jumping in late for Word Art Wednesday.   I really don't know if I will ever get better at this blogging thing.  I have so many cards to share you with you all, but it just seems like I never get around to the blogging part of things.  At least being part of the Word Art Wednesday design team keeps me consistent at something.  
Here is my design for this challenge:

Isn't this week's word art just beautiful??!!  Karen really made my heart happy with this one!

My design is fairly simple, as I wanted the Word Art to be the star of the show.   I just printed the Word Art onto my card base, then I stamped around it. (I used the same stamp technique that I used here, and I think it turned out much better.)   I colored my stamped images using Ranger distress inks and a water pen.  I added some Martha Stewart fine glitter to the butterfly and flower.  Lastly, I embellished with a strip of washi tape across the top, a paper flower, and an enamel heart from MME.

Please stop by the Word Art Wednesday blog to join our challenge and be encouraged by sharing of God's word.  
Thank you for stopping by today, 
Blessings, 
I'm playing along in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  "Furry Friends"
( I thought it was still the "bit of Sparkle" theme when I entered.  Oops.  Butterflies are sometimes furry.  I tried to delete my entry, but it wouldn't let me. )
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: "little critters" 
The butterfly is a little critter.

He Will Never Leave Me! Word Art Wednesday #282-283

Hello, Y'all! 
I hope this post finds you all doing well and staying sane.   I know I'm going just a little bit crazy over here.   Things have been so busy that I feel like I'm treading water.  Thankfully, I belong to the God who can walk on water and the winds and waves obey His voice.  Honestly, what more do I need?  
And then, there are His promises.  I personally cling to the promise He has made to never leave me.  That brings me to our Word Art Wednesday verse and my card design:

Misty D. Designs


Isn't this such a precious promise?   God's promises are true.  He can never break them, He does not grow weary.  We can rest and trust in Him!
Oh, how I thrive on this truth.  When my life is like a crazy whirlwind and I don't know what I'm doing from one moment to the next, I can always trust in what God has said in His word.  That is my constant hope.

I used MME the sweetest thing/tangerine papers for my card.  I love this paper line and have actually almost exhausted my supply.  eek!
I fussy cut some flowers from the same papers and adhered them using foam dimensional tape.  I added a strip of lace and a couple of enamel dots for texture.
