Angel Kitty

Happy New Year's Eve from the United States!  It's me Shari, in the snowy mountains of Northern Idaho, and I can't very well open my post today without saying HAPPY NEW YEAR to our international friends, too!!  It's already 2016 in other parts of the world and I'm feeling very honored to be here today at the Lost Coaster's Review to close out and start a new creative year with you!! 

   Now, if you can just bear with me as I share one more Christmasy holiday card before our clock strikes midnight here...
 
 
This is such a sweet kitty image, I LOVE it!!  This is Carmen's Veranda Angel Cat stamp and the stars are the limit with this darling image. 
 

I'm using kraft stock for my card base and background.  This is the Stars stencil from Dylusions and I'm using Picket Fence Distress Paint to create a starry background.  I'm also using DP because I want it to resist the next thing I'm going to do to it. 
 
 
 I heat set the stenciled stars then ran this background panel through Broken China Distress Stain, which I didn't take a picture of (sorry, I do that sometimes!), then I roughed up the edges of this panel with my paper distresser and ran through my sewing machine and added a messy, stitched border. 
 

Angel Cat was stamped a couple of times onto coffee stained mixed-media paper with Coffee & Jet Black Archival inks.  Before stamping the image with Coffee Archival, I wiped away the ink on the stars and colored with my Broken China Distress Marker. 

 
 I gave Angel Cat's bow a little sparkle with frosted film.  I stamped Angel Cat onto blue card stock, then put a small piece of frosted film over the bow, then fussy cut the bow out.
 
 
I added a few seasonal Chit Chat stickers and outlined with Hickory Smoke Distress Marker and my water brush. 
 
 
I adhered my layered fussy cut Angel Cat and a few mirrored stars onto the background with matte Decou-Page then attached the finished panel to the kraft card base, which I had also added a stitched border to. 
 
Thank you so much for joining me here today!!  Don't forget--You can still join in on our 2nd FB Challenge--
 
 
Cheers to a Happy & Healthy 2016!!

  1. Shari, This is adorable! I love the primitive style of the stamp and the way the stars have a similar style to them. This is so delightful.

  2. CAN YOU BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING? BY STEVE FINNELL

    There are many who claim that water baptism constitutes being sprinkled with water. Can you be buried under a sprinkling? Are immersion and sprinkling synonymous?

    Romans 6:3-4 Or. do you not know that as many as were immersed into Christ Jesus were immersed into his death? 4 We were, therefore, buried with him by immersion into death; that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, thus we also should walk in newness of life.(The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)

    CAN MEN BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING?

    Romans 6:4 We were buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.(New International Version)

    CAN MEN BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING?

    Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.(King James Version)

    CAN MEN BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING?

    Romans 6:4 Therefore, we were buried with Him through this baptism into death so that just as God the Father, in all His glory, resurrected the Anointed One, we too, might walk confidently out of the grave into a new life. (The Voice)

    CAN MEN BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING?


    He who has been buried with Christ in baptism [immersion, that is] has been forgiven of sin.--- Romans 6:3-7..........7 For he who has died has been freed from sin.(NKJV)

    CAN MEN BE BURIED UNDER A SPRINKLING?

    Yes, water baptism is essential in order to be saved.

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

    Not only has the church of Christ, [the body of Christ] been buried with Christ in baptism, but Christ sanctified, and cleansed His church with the washing of water. Ephesians 5:25-27.

    Yes, men have to believe in Jesus and be baptized in water to be saved.
