So Blessed...




Hello Sweet friends,  today I am showcasing a card made using Go God's Way, I just love this set but I especially love the bike.  I stamped the bike onto designer paper and loved how it looked so I decided it didn't need to be colored.  The sentiment is from Thoughtful Words that has so many wonderful combinations.  Make sure you check out this month's stamp of the month-Texture Tiles 3  which is free with $75 purchase and also check out the Deals and Discount section- so many great bargains.  I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!

For my next card, I got my watercolor paints out, I don't know there is just something about painting that is so relaxing for me!  I did some distressing after the paint dried, the little dots and writing are using Texture Tile 1 set which is fast becoming a favorite of mine.  Don't miss out on our early bird  bundle discounted through the 9th, all 4 sets for $57 and if you spend $75 you get our Texture Tiles 3 free.

I Am Free




A simple card for you today using a new set called Free Indeed, one of this month's new release sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.   The whole time I was making this card this song How Can It Be by Lauren Dingle playing in my mind.  Have you heard it? If not you can listen to it HERE.  This set is great for card making and journaling in your bible. I stamped with distress inks and the paper is from The Paper Studios.



This second card uses Free Indeed along with Texture Tiles 2 which is this month's set of the month.  If you place a $75 order you can get the set of the month free.  I used Distress Oxide inks to make the background papers.

Happy Stamping!
