Prayers for Sara along with Techniques

I wanted to share several fun techniques with you today, stamping on sticky labels and crimped envelope pocket cards!

On Mondays I do a challenge with a goofy group of friends on SCS and our CCEE challenge for today was to use sticky labels...stamping on them or printing digital dp onto them. I hadn't done this in quite some time, I really like how it came out! I stamped D Morgan's lighthouse image on these small labels, colored with Prismacolor pencils and Copics, then carefully stuck them to Prism Kraft cardstock. Distress ink was sponged around the entire edge.

The seagull image from PSX is colored with Copics and also sponged.

To see what the rest of the girls did you can go to our blog.


The other technique is one that was just shared on SCS a few weeks ago and used for the technique challenge today, Crimped Envelope Pocket Cards. I used a business size envelope to fit the tag.

We have a friend whose daughter is in the hospital with serious pneumonia! I thought of this tag last night, figuring I'd do it today and stick it in a blah, plain envelope for her. How perfect the TLC today! Now Sara gets a pretty envelope along with her Guardian Angel tag!

Lots of masking and stamping! It's all colored with Copic markers then sponged with Distress ink. Highlights on the flower centers is gel pen.

Both the Guardian Angel Prayer and Sing to the Lord (bird and flowers) are from Our Daily Bread Designs. The verse on the envelope is from Stampabilities. SU's Itty Bitty backgrounds was lightly stamped around the edges.

I hope this brings some cheer and encouragement to Sara and her family. Keeping you in prayer kiddo!!

Thanks for stopping!
