You're In My Prayers


I have a thing for small country chapels, so Impression Obsession's Church cling stamp really speaks to me. Inspired by the muted tones of the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue paper pack, I stamped the image in a lighter color and opted to sponge on some light blue ink in lieu of more full-blown coloring. I like the soft look! The beautiful die-cut frame is the largest die from the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabilities.





The sentiment, "You're in my Prayers," is from JustRite's new Just Because Mini Sentiments set. I can see getting lots and lots of mileage from the sentiments in this set! I stamped the sentiment in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then die-cut it with JustRite's Nested Frames Custom Dies by Spellbinders.




Let's talk about Kaisercraft's Paper Blooms -- love them! Why? They're available in 17 luscious colors, each pack has ten blooms of varying shapes and sizes, the packs (all but white) have some slight color variations among them, and they're reasonably priced. I also like that they're a more modest size and style - wonderful as accents without overpowering whatever else you've got going on with your card or project.

Other card details include: Maya Road trinket pins, lace trim, crinkled seam binding, Kaisercraft  adhesive pearls, and a layer of vellum to add to the soft feel. I also spritzed the whole card front with some Sparkle Psst Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko.

Before I go, a word of thanks for the prayers and support last week when I posted about a loss within my extended family. Hugs and love to all!

Amy, your sympathy card makes my toes curl! It's that eye-fetching. Question: does the JustRite Just Because Mini Sentiment set of stamps come with a base? Or are they clear acrylic or cling type stamps? I'd like to know if I need to purchase a stamping block in order to use this set. Thanks so much.

This is a beautiful card Amy. I really like your choice of softer color too. Stamping in a lighter "one" color was a perfect choice. This speaks to me as well. Of course ... it's also the style that drew me to your work from the beginning. Hope you're having a great start to the summer.

Hugs,
Susie~
