Color By Faith Blog Hop

I am participating in another exciting blog hop with Joy Clair! This hop is all about the Color By Faith stamp line. I must confess that I am still new to Bible art. These stamps are fabulous and have really helped me learn this new form of art. Over the last few months I have created several pages.

Unashamed

The first page I created with the Color by Faith line was this one:

I shared this a couple of months ago for another hop.

The next page is my favorite so far! The stacked teacups makes me smile 🙂

This also is the first Bible art page I did on YouTube LIVE!

The last one I am sharing with you is based off of the lyrics of my favorite song –Reckless Love. The little sheep is just darling! Here is how this one came together:

Save Us Now!

Below is a recent post for the Joy Clair blog I wrote. The saying that stuck out to me was “Save Us Now”. I recently have been praying for things and God has been telling me no. I fire back to the Almighty the reason I have trust issues with Him is because He tells me no. He then will remind me that He is not a genie in a bottle. I can’t just rub him, make a wish and BOOM I get it. He is the sovereign God that knows everything and all things work for good. My prayer has shifted from asking what I want to just “Save me now!” I knew that when I read this passage in Matthew 21 and saw that sentiment it was from Him. I stamped it over and over again as I cried out in my spirit to Him. Sure enough, the next day I thanked God for something he said no to me about. Had he said yes it would have been a disaster.

One of the things I have set out to do this year is get into Bible Journaling. God gave me a passion for art and a creative mind. It only makes sense that He would speak to me through it. Once a week I sit down for a few hours and create in my Bible. I always turn on praise and worship songs when I do it and just let my spirit go. My pages are not where I want them to be from an artistic point of view, but that’s okay. It is not so much about creating beautiful art as much as it communicating with my maker. Here is a recent page I created:

I really was drawn to the palm leaves and liked how it represented Jesus coming into town. I wanted to create a set of cards to mail out to remind my loved ones of the real reason for Easter.

Cards

The cards are rather simple with a few special touches. The kraft card stock is a nice compliment to the green palm leaves and Rinea Foiled paper. I did quite a bit of embossing on these cards to amp up the simplicity of them. 

Bible art stamps are not only great for your Bible, but for cards and other projects. A lot of times people really need positive encouragements and reminders that they are loved. There is not better way to show this than through a card made with God’s love.
