STAMPlorations mixed media STENCIL SUNDAY God's faithfulness tag.


It is the last STENCIL SUNDAY
Come check out what all the other ladies on the design team have created. There are some really pretty projects this month. There is still time for you to join in on the Mixed media challenge.  You can still link up a non card project that uses at least one stencil.

My double tag was made to remind myself of God's faithfulness and provision.

ARTplorations: Plaid Maker Stencil
CUTplorations: Tags#1 nesting dies
I used the plaid maker stencil with distressed ink pads that I just rubbed over the stencil. I then used the dies to cut the two tags out. I stamped Great is thy Faithfulness on the smaller one. I only used the bottom portion of the stamp. I ran the bigger tag through my cuttlebug using a script embossing folder. I then took gold metallic rub and went over the raised areas. The bird was stamped and fussy cut out. I added the metallic rub to the bird. His eye is a teal glass bead. I added sequins. The really fun element is the used tea bags between the two tags. I think they add interest, texture and make it so the top tag doesn't get lost in the background of the larger tag.
Matthew 6:25-33New International Version (NIV)

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.


  1. So cool. I like the plaid made with that stencil.

  2. What a beautiful set of tags MariLynn - love the way you are using the used teabags!! (better than drying them and sending them to missionaries!!)
    May your Christmas be blessed with love
