Bohemian Card For Word Art Wednesday #296-297

Hi, Y'all!
I'm so excited to share my Word Art Wednesday card design with you!  I'm just really excited about this one.  You see, it isn't often that I buy new paper.  I've got plenty in my stash and even though most of the paper lines I own are at least 5 years old, I just can't justify spending the money on new paper.   However, when I saw The Paper Studio's new Bohemian Vibes paper line, I was smitten.  So, without further adieu, I'll just show you the first card I've made using this gorgeous paper line.

Isn't it pretty?!  Get used to seeing lots from this paper line in the coming months, because I can't seem to get enough of it.   After last weeks card mishap, it felt good to get back into my crafty groove. :)

Even the Word Art seemed to match the bohemian feel of this paper line.  And how much I love this verse, wow!  Just let it sink in, mull it over in your mind and tell me if it doesn't transform your thinking in some way.    God's word is amazing because God is amazing!

My Colorful, Crazy Card for Word Art Wednesday #294-295

Hi, Y'all!
I'm not sure what got into me today, but I must have been in a mood.  My card design for Word Art Wednesday is not my usual style.  You know, soft, pale colors, pinks, and blue hues.... I think I went a little crazy with the colors and the glue. 

Misty D. Designs

I even took the pics differently.   I was really feeling it this morning, but hmmm, not so much now.  It just kind of looks like my craft room threw up onto my card base. bleh.   Oh-well, sometimes that's just how it goes in the craft room.  I feel like I should share some sort of metaphor for life here, but na...

I'm so glad that God is not moody and inconsistent like me.  I could never place my trust in a God who is like that.  
My God is Faithful, consistent, not ruled by moods or changing seasons.  His plans will be accomplished and His ways are perfect.  The best part is, I belong to this God!  This God sees me and hears me,  all because of what Jesus did on the cross for me and for anyone who desires to follow after Him. 
AWESOME!

My Scraplifted Card for Word Art Wednesday #292-293

Hi Everyone!
I'm excited to share my latest Word Art Wednesday design with you all today, because it's a little different from my usual.  I was really stuggling this week with my creative mojo, I just couldn't seem to come up with anything.   So, what do I do when I'm low on the creative juices and need ideas?  I scraplift!  (at least that's what I think it's called)  I have my favorite designers whom I borrow ideas from.  My designs never turn out just like theirs, but that's the point.  


Misty D. Designs

For my card design this week, I scrapliftted from the talent Michelle Wooderson.  You can see the original design on her blog "Mish Mash"  She is one of my favorite designers.  I just love her relaxed yet clean style.  I often browse her blog for inspiration when I'm plumb out of ideas. 

Misty D. Designs

Michelle used modeling paste on her card,  I didn't have that so I used Gesso mixed with white acrylic paint.  I love the texture this created by just spreading it onto my paper.   I think the white color is a perfect pairing under my verse which speaks of our sins not being remembered.  It just makes me think of my sins being blotted out.  
And, Yes, once again I'm  using paper and embellishment from My Minds Eye.  I'd venture say that at least 80% of my craft room supplies are My Minds Eye.  The paper is from the Vintage Charm 12x12 pack and the enamel heart and dots are also from My Minds Eye.  
I just can't seem to get enough of their product.  :)

Now we want to see what you've created, even if you borrowed some ideas. 😉 So, please stop by the Word Art Wednesday blog to play along.  The word art is always free to use, but not required to join.  
Thank you for stopping by today, and have a wonderfully creative week.

Texture and Stars Card for Word Art Wednesday #290-291

Hi! 
I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day!  I know that I did!  Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays.   I love celebrating the birth of our nation and all that comes along with that.  We truly are blessed!  
That leads me to this week's Word Art Wednesday Card.  I used classic Americana elements to design my card, although it's not your typical patriotic colors.  

Misty D. Designs

I guess I kinda went for that vintage American look, oh, and stars upon stars. 🌟
I used a very old paper line from My Minds Eye.  I'm not sure if it's even available for purchase anymore, but it's called "Blink of an Eye".   I've kinda been hoarding this paper, it has an all-American, vintage summertime feel to it.  I embellished using some bronze star stickers from Jolee's that I purchased at Micheal's.  I added a strip of gold washi tape across the bottom and cut a piece of burlap doily to finish it off.

Misty D. Designs

I think you can see the bronze and gold a little more in this picture.   I also glued a wood veneer star to one of the bronze stars, just to add a little more texture.
