Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Embedded & Embossed Flowers

Wow, now 3 posts in one day! LOL!

This is another card I just finished yesterday using a technique that I found on Split Coast Stampers called embedded embossing. I found this in the Challenges Forum under F4A59 from 4/8/11...took me a while to get to this one!

Basically, to do the technique you glue die cuts, punch outs, etc. to paper and then emboss it. My colors are a little blah, it would be nicer with colors that are more vivid for a contrast. Also the paper flowers once flatten out kind of loose their shape, but it was still a fun technique to do.

The frames and leaves were actually leftovers from other projects I did and saved in my organized stash!

Supplies I used:

Paper: old olive (SU), vintage rose 8x8 scrapbook kit (Colobok), palo verde (Bazzills)
Misc: felt bird sticker (Puffies - KIMemories), glitter paint writer, paper flowers, 1/4" punch, branch with leaves die (Sizzix), pearl stickers, large labels die (Spellb.), stylus, square lattice embossing folder (SU)

I actually didn't do any stamping on this one! Thanks for looking!
