Art Recipe: Quick bible journal spread using Catherine Pooler stamps

Art Recipe: Quick bible journal spread using Catherine Pooler stamps

Hi everyone. You might have seen that the name of my blog changed a bit. I wanted to combine the projects I share for my store The Maker Deli with all my other projects and have just one website for all the fun. Speaking of fun, I received some new stamps from Catherine Pooler for the store and finally, I had some time to play with one set of them. It had a great bible verse, so I finally decided to start journaling in my bible. To prepare the journaling part of the page, I used Golden Absorbent Ground. Just…

Mono printing with Nuvo Aqua Flow pens

Mono printing with Nuvo Aqua Flow pens

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! Let’s start it with some fun and that includes mono printing for me. I was curious about the Nuvo Aqua Flow pens and if you could do more with them, besides coloring images. So I grabbed my petite Gel Press and started coloring that. Here is a quick video showing all the details. What do you think? So many options and it’s so easy. That technique is also great for creating a bunch of blank cards and then add a sentiment later on, once you need a card. Supplies Used Some of my links…

Sweet cocoa with Emerald Creek aroma embossing powder

Emerald Creek Sweet Coffee

Hi everyone and welcome to a new project for Emerald Creek. This time I decided to create something using the Aroma embossing powder. They are called Aroma because they smell like whatever the name is, for example the Chocolate Dream that I’m using smells like Swiss hot chocolate, yummy. So, I had to pair it with the new Unwind stamp set from Pam Bray to create a sweet cocoa card. During the video I’m showing you how to create a fall colored background using water color powders and how to color an image using embossing powder. Both super fun and…
