I made this Bible journaling cascade bookmark using some old Stampin' up designer paper. I love the nautical theme. This was a really fun project to make. Being two sided made it really easy to use. I didn't have to stamp or anything. All I had to do was cut the papers, score them and glue them to the bookmark. This project has a belly band that holds the little flaps down. I die cut 3 circles and fussy cut out the little octopus.

My mother in law needed me to make a wedding card for two friends of hers who are getting a second chance at love. I went on Pinterest and it took me to THIS BLOG. I knew right away that I wanted to make a card inspired by Karen, who herself said that her card was inspired by others who made simlar cards. . I used different supplies to get to a similar look. What you can't tell from the photo is the bride puzzle piece is covered with sparkles. I used my nuvo Glamour Glitter Pen to go over the surface. What is also hard to see from the photo is that the white square base is embossed. I made this card into an easel card. I used a white gel pen to write congratulations and the name of the bride and the groom.
My card differs from the inspiration card in that I didn't add buttons on the groom puzzle piece, but I did put a bow tie. a cut piece of black cardstock. Sometimes you just has to CASE. Copy and Share everything another artist's card. My mother always said "imitation is a sincere form of flattery." She is right.

Using a red water color paint, I painted 4 stripes leaving 3 white in between. They are about 1/4 inch wide.
I then skipped about 1/4 inch then did three more red lines. I then used some little tree stamps and stamped them at the bottom. Making sure that some of the trees covered the bottom of the "flag"
I then used some blue water color paint to paint the left hand corner.
I then took black paint and painted over the trees and the bottom to make the trees look like silhouettes.
I made it mixed media by splattering white acrylic paint for the stars and I took red colored pencils and doodled on the red lines.
I finished it off by doodling with a white gel pen.
I was inspired by post on Pinterest HERE.
