Good Sunday Morning! I get to play hostess this week’s Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge and our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop. The verse on my wall hanging is the Scripture I chose to share for my devotional; “He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge.” This is a verse I learned many years ago and I just find it very comforting to know that God is always there through anything we’re going through… He’s our safe shelter from the storms of life… He covers us with His wings and is our refuge. If you care to read more of my devo, please hop over to the SSiC blog. We love having you all visit and share with us through comments what spoke to you this week or even if our DT inspired you!! Swing on by *Ü*
My challenge for you this week is “THINGS with WINGS”
For my card I made this Enchanted Sparrow Paperscape from an SVG set over at svgCuts.com and printed the Scripture with my computer.
In case you’re interested in how I made the flowers, read on. If not, skip on down to leave me a comment (ha) and then pop over to our challenge blog to be blessed *Ü*
I cut out 8 sets, but only used 7. Just kinda eye it and see what looks good to you. The stamens were cut out of shimmery white paper—some I colored the tips in yellow and some I left white. Then I took the rolly ball thingy that you dry emboss with (opposite end of my paper piercer) and with my flowers on the backside of a computer mouse pad, I gently rolled circles into each petal and then in the center of the flower which causes it to curl up … Neat trick huh? (it was in the instructional video *wink*)
Then I took those comb-looking things (stamens) and rolled them around the end of my paper piercer (the tiny end) and added a dab of glue to the end. Then either add a dab more glue or use a glue dot to the underside and plant it in the middle of the flower. Then use your finger to spread out the wiggly thingies to look like a flower! I tried the yellow-tipped first but it blended in too much from a distance, so I used the pure white stamens for my project.
