Well, I decided that after we got home from our day trip last night at 11pm, that I wouldn't stamp. I couldn't stay awake. Gee, must of been tired. So, I decided to make the card in the morning. Anyhow, we didn't find what we were looking for in Texas but I did meet a pen pal from SCS, so that was nice.
Today the Featured Stamper is Twinshappy. She has a wonderful gallery and it was hard to pick a card, but I chose this one. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=60960 to case. I started out with barely banana c/s and ran it through my cb Script folder on one half. I used a sponge dauber with tea dye ink to the edges on lightly on the c/s. I added a piece of purple sheer ribbon down the front and attached to the back. Then I mounted the Chocolate Chip to the Almost Amethyst c/s. I stamped the cross onto banana c/s with black ink. I used my primascolor pencils, mineral spirits, and blending stumps to color the image. I then took my gold gel pen and used it on the wreath. I distressed the edges, sponged with tea dye ink around the edges, and a little around the cross area. I used the piercing tool to add detail. I added cracked dp to a part of the b/g. The cross is mounted and attached using pop dot blocks. I wanted to use a heart symbol in the card because our name of our church is Crosspointe Church...A Church with a Heart. So, I decided to use my Sizzix die cut heart and stamped He Has Risen. Sponged too. It is held on with a pop dot block too. I felt like it needed something else, so I added a charm cross to the cording. The inside of the card reads: The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.Philippians 4:23. It is by Stampabilities. I really enjoyed making this card and hope you enjoy viewing it. I'm still deciding on religious cards to make my Pastor because I really love all the Old Bread Designs, so I will have to check about those. TFL! Have a wonderful Sunday.
What do you think?
