Fun With Frosted

Bible Bookmarks
Combining the Frosted paper pack with the Look to the Light stamp set 
gives us a gentle reminder of the power of God's Word. 
These are some of my favorite bible verses.
When those hard times come this verse reminds us that 
only the strength of god will keep us safe.
Casting our burdens on the Lord will give us great peace.
God's word show us the way when all seems dark. 
True peace and rest in the times of hardship can only come from the Lord.
Christ gives us our strength to live life fully blessed in His strength.
When the world beats us down we only have to look up to 
Him to have His peace and joy.I hope you enjoy these bible 
verses and live them in your daily life.
May peace and joy fill your life as you trust Him and His Word.

Shadows And Shades

With an "Ombre" Challenge at Heart 2 Heart
What's an "ombre"? It's when colors or tones that shade into each other —
used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.
For this technique I used the puddle pad technique with re-inkers to 
get my colors to shade into each other.
I was inspired today by Aaron Brown where she used the new Rediscover 
download from CTMH for August to make a notepad cover. I wanted to give it a try.
When you print these out the colors may vary depending on your printer. For
my printer I used Buttercup, Juniper, and Ruby for my notepad cover.
Inside the cover I attached the note papers(10 sheets) to the cover with a 
paper clip. That way refilling when the paper is gone is easy
For this cover I used Twilight and Buttercup
Inside this cover, the note paper(10 sheets) is attached with a spiral clip.
Puddle Pad technique to get the "ombre" look: Fold two sheets of baby wipes 
into a square. Place the baby wipe pad on a block and ink with re-inker. 
I used buttercup and twilight.The yellow and blue made green in the middle.
 The Ruby and Buttercup re-inkers madeorange in the middle. 
Get your "ombre" on and share at Heart 2 Heart.
