Trust in the Lord...

...and lean not on your own understanding.  This has been a favorite scripture of mine since my little toe headed 3 year old came home with this as her memory verse from pre-school.  I was delighted that each time she recited it she would leeeeeeeean way over while standing on one leg! giggles! Precious 38 year old memory! and a lifetime of application.



My card was inspired by Anita Bowden's card at the Muse.  I loved her design and especially the background she created.



I decided to try a new technique I learned about on Lin's Craft Corner in this post.  Not long after seeing Gina K's video of the technique on Stamp TV I enjoyed seeing more beautiful cards created using this technique from  Verna on VA's Creative Clutter blog.  Please follow the links to see these two Blogland friend's great cards.



I created several different panels using three different embossing folders.  I colored each one a little bit different.



This one I colored to match the pretty color challenge at ColourQ.





I simply cut my square panel using my dies from Lil Inkers and attached it to my card.  Then I stamped my sentiment and added the die cuts! easy peasy.  I also used scraps from the colorful panel and added them to the inside of each card.  They were cut with  a border die also from Lil Inkers.

We are not enjoying our weather in the Black Hills this weekend.  It is currently "drizzling"  a fine mist of snow LOL  but sunny skies are predicted for later in the week and we need the precipitation so I will just snuggle in and enjoy soft lighting while I craft! : )

Thank you all so much for the help with my Wink of Stella question yesterday!  I think I will stick with this product - flaws and all - for a while longer because I just love the soft glitter it leaves.  : )

Have a great weekend!

LOVE your cards Patti! I learned songs to these scriptures when our daughters were growing up, so as soon as I start reading, my mind starts singing the songs! :D
Thank you!

Beautiful cards Patti! The backgrounds are fabulous! Is that the technique done using wax paper oIn your embossing folder? I was thinking I wanted to give that a try. So glad to you figured out your wink of Stella from your previous post. Stay warm and keep crafting.

Oooh these are gorgeous Patti ... off to check out that link to see how you did it.
Hope your grass comes peeping through the snow soon ;)

Lisa said...

Oh boy are these ever pretty!! Your backgrounds look great and I love that you added some of it to the inside!

Looks like you're well set up for a few more cards with these gorgeous backgrounds! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I absolutely love your card and that beautiful verse you chose to use on it. And, I can see you enjoyed making those backgrounds too. I know I sure did.

Anita in France said...

Oh wow, Patti ... these backgrounds are stunning ... such beautiful verses you used with them ... and I LOVE the crisp white die cuts ... they really pop! Anita :)

Jeanne said...

Beautiful work, Patti. Those backgrounds are gorgeous. Will be saving this post to check out the links you shared. We had a snowy weekend as well. Hope the promised near 80 degree day later in the week will make up for it. :)

Happy Dance said...

This is also one of my favorite verses; loved the story about your daughter! And what a trio of beautiful cards. This technique is a knock-out, and I might have to try it, though mine won't look as pretty as these do! Great take for the Muse too!! And I love the papers peeking from the inside too. Gorgeous! Happy Monday. Bev

OH, Patti, your cards are simply beautiful. I love the backgrounds you created for each one.
