Patterned Paper and Chinese Lanterns

Okay this is my last post for today. (and again, sorry about all the posting) But I've got one last card to share with you, and it's using patterned paper. Yes, I, Bethany Marie Stellpflug, used patterned paper on a card. Not something I do too often, but this card seemed like a good chance to use it! Allons-y!




I stamped and cut out the lanterns from patterned paper, stamped the lines and lanterns on the card, then adhered all the patterned paper lanterns on top. :) 


And of course, finished it off with a sentiment. ;) 


Oi! Well that's all for me today! 
I just got a bunch of books from the library. (on skiing, Doctor Who, I got Mockingjay again, and other things) so I'm going to curl up on the couch, put some Netflix on, and look at them after I grab a bite to eat! 

Have a lovely rest of your weekend! 

Jesus saves!

Let It Snow! Wait, what?

Hehehe you read that right. I made a "Let it Snow" card. And I want it to snow. I'd love it if it just started snowing right this second. :) I could go on and on about how I want snow and the reasons why, but I better just post the card. Hehe. 


This was a fun one hehe. Actually, they pretty much all are. But still. ;) 


I embossed the trees in clear on the card base, then inked the card with an assortment of blue inks, for a winter-y night kinda feel. :) 


I misted the card with some water and stamped some "snow" in white chalk ink. Then I used my ink blender to blend over the card a little bit, make everything a little smoother and such. 


And I added a sentiment in black. 

Be back in a few minutes! 

Jesus saves!

The Sky's the Limit! And Happy Saturday!

So the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration Team is having a design team call. And with my love of Lawn Fawn and Lawnscaping, I just had to enter! So I made three cards for it, which means three posts today! (Hehe, sorry about that) but anyhoo, I'll show ya the first card: 



I did something a bit different here. Instead of making the hot air balloons all nice and colored, like I would usually do, I kinda did the reverse and did a bright, colored background and left the balloons white! :D 



I painted the background using some watercolors. If you know me, you know how much I <3 my watercolors. :) 



I'll be back!

Jesus saves!

You Mean the World to Me

Bonjour my lovely followers! :D Sorry I haven't posted in a bit. But I am here now with a card! Yay! Take a look! 


I did some multi-colored inking and stamped the "road" multiple times that way, creating a lovely rainbow pattern. :)


I also stamped the eiffel tower and a sentiment. All one layer. My fave. :) 


Loving how this turned out! :D Anyway, how has your weekend been so far? I've made a few cards and did a watercolor painting of the Tardis from Doctor Who. Hehe I've recently  started watching that show and I love it so much! 

Jesus saves!

Hand-Lettered Hooray!

I made this card quite a ways back. Like maybe June or July. Somehow I never took photos of it until last month, even though I love it! Have a look: 


I stenciled the backround, trimmed it and adhered it to the card. Then I used some high-flow black acrylic to hand paint the "Hooray!" and splatter the card with some of it. I love the finish of the acrylic. Nice and shiny. :)


'Tis all for me tonight! I'm hoping to get some creative time in tomorrow. :) 

Jesus saves!
