And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Jesus Paid It All

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend.  I cannot wrap my mind around all that Jesus did for me when he died on the cross, but his love for all of us caused him to pay the ultimate sacrifice, to lay down his life for us.  While we hated and despised him, and while we were yet sinners, he died for us.  (Romans 5:8)  My hope lies in the fact that he is no longer in the tomb…Sunday is coming!

Creative Nugget:  The design for my Easter card is from the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.  The Typewriter Text Background was clear embossed on the background and the Smackin' Acetate Technique with Tombow markers was used to add the pink, yellow, and purple colors to all three layers.  The text was lightly stamped on the middle panels using Hickory Smoke Distress ink. Deep Purple Archival ink was used to stamp the Jesus Paid It All image of Calvary.  A Basic Grey panel and dyed silk ribbon were added to finish the card.

The stamp sets used for this card can be found at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps also just released their newest Creative Worship Bible Journaling Note This Kit yesterday.  I had a lot of fun using the new Note This stamp set designed by Rebecca Rios!

Creative Nugget:  Acrylic blocks were painted with heavy body acrylic paints, spritzed with water, and applied to the page which had been prepped with two light coats of Gel Mat Medium.  (If you try this, be sure to clean the paint off the blocks right away.)  Elements from the stamp set were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored with a White Sharpie Paint Pen.  Other sets used for this page are the All of Me Alpha, Squiggle Banners, Decorative Banners, and Words of Life: Common Words 1.  I also tried a little hand lettering for the words in the banners.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me."  (John 14:6 NKJV) 

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #105 - Use Ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by…have a blessed day!
