First up is the Stamp for a Cause set, Fear Not, available for pre-order today. This set is filled with encouraging scriptures that you can use to create cards to uplift others and help a family in need at the same. That's a win-win in my book!
This card features Fear Not, In This Together, and Bee Sweet. This card went together pretty quick because I used colored images from my stash and a favorite layout. The images were stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink onto Canson mixed media paper, colored with Arteza Real Brush Pens and hand trimmed out. I cut the layering pieces with a die from MFT. I was super excited to find some purple gingham and cardstock in my stash that coordinated with the coloring of my flowers.
My second card features the super adorable Winter Gnomes! The images are so cute and can be used all winter long. I stamped the image with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink on white cardstock, colored with Shuttle Art markers and fussy cut out. I dry embossed one panel with a snowflake folder and stamped snowflakes on the other with Soft Sky ink (SU!). Both panels were cut with dies from MFT and GMD. I assembled as seen adding strips of real red, handsome hunter and basic gray cardstock, stamped the sentiment with black ink and added some small silver sequins to finish it.
For my last card, I paired the new release set Welcome Home with Encouraging Thoughts. The team is having so much fun playing with this set! I created the background by ink blending cucumber crush, wild wasabi and soft sky ink (SU!) with a drifts & hills stencil (MFT) on white cardstock. I stamped the clouds, trees, and fences with bashful blue, wild wasabi, and chocolate chip (SU!) and the houses and roofs with distress oxide inks. I die cut the panel and attached to a layer of black and then to a more mustard base. I stamped the sentiment with black ink on a scrap of soft sky paper, die cut and affixed to the front.
