I hope you love this release as much as I do! Today I'm featuring the Jeremiah 33:3 Plain Jane, the Flared Cross Plain Jane, and the fabulous Cross Die Set. I stamped the Flared Cross PJ in Stampin' Up's Purely Pomegranate ink onto Papertrey Rustic White card stock, die-cut it using the coordinating cross from the Cross Die Set, and gave it a frame using Verve's Curvy Bookplate Die and a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die. I am going to love having dies to match the Flared Cross and Curvy Cross images! The Jeremiah 33:3 Plain Jane is stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink onto a pink gingham pattern from My Mind's Eye's Blush Lost & Found Two 6x6 paper pad. I used My Favorite Things dies for the rolled flower and the scallop border. Stitching, twine, and a small button and ribbon accent finish things off.



Enjoy the hop!
