Good evening y'all! I wanted to finish 2013 on a high and positive note. I have another small project to share with you this evening. One of my friends from a Secret Santa Swap gave me a beautiful Christian Stamp set for one of my gifts. I really love the set of stamps. Well, I wanted to be able to layer a stamp with a shape of the stamp.
So, what I done to remedy that was peeled all the stamps off the mylar film that has the black images of the stamps on it. I placed it on my scanner with a sheet of white cardstock on top of it so the images would pop when scanned. Then I brought the scanned images up in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition and I just done a trace of the images and then I done an offset of 0.175 with each image. Now, I can just cut the shapes and stamp them, water color them and pop them on a card front. Another thing I done was to take the original offset of 0.175 and done another offset of it at 0.175 again and that gave me a layered effect and I really like that. Here are some pics.
I pray for each of you to have a safe and Happy New Year. I hope that 2014 is the best year ever for all of us! I pray that if you haven't asked God to be the driving force in your life, then 2014 is your year to do just that. It's not easy living your life based on the principals and precepts of God, but it is rewarding. The sinful world does not like it when someone makes life choices based on who God is to them. We all make choices, every day, whether we realize it or not.
Joshua 24:15 English Standard Version (ESV)
15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. "But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua chose well and he set a great example for the people of his generation and for the people of this generation. We have to choose whom we will serve. Not making a choice IS making a choice! Choose wisely.
God bless you as we close up 2013! God bless you more as we usher in 2014!!! Thank you for hanging out with me this year and I look forward to hanging out with y'all next year!
Blessings, Love and Hugs, y'all, Patty
