Faith Cards

Today I'm sharing a couple quick and easy cards I created with Graciellie Design's new Mini Faith Bundle digital stamp kit.

I kept these two cards very clean and simple so as to showcase the verses. I also wanted to give you some ideas on how to use digital stamps when (like me) you're  not a professional at coloring!

Supplies and Tools:
Mini Faith Bundle Digital Stamp Set (Graciellie Designs)
Botanical 3D Embossing Folder (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
Prismacolor Pencils
Tiny Pearls

Bear Hugs

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's a Designer's Choice challenge over on The House that Stamps Built.  Today Cheri has picked a the fun theme of "Bear Hugs" to inspire us! Repeat Impressions has quite a few bear themed stamps to pick from --- the one I'm showcasing today is called "Belle."

To create my card I:
  • stamped 701-K, Belle in Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento) and colored her in with Prismacolor Pencils
  • using the Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders) I cut her out and inked around the circle with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • I matted my sweet bear on a brown scallop circle (Spellbinders nestabilities) and popped it up over my background with foam mounting tape
  • the background is two pieces of designer paper from my stash and a piece of paper lace punched with the Embroidery Deep Edge Punch from Martha Stewart
  • I inked the top edge with Ground Espresso Distress Ink (Ranger) added a die cut sentiment from Spellbinders Sentiments Five set

Merry & Bright

I recently won the Layered Lights stamp set from Stamplorations and couldn't wait to try it out!

To create my card I:
  • stamped the sentiment and wire from Layered Lights in Tuxedo Black ink (Memento) onto a white card front
  • added sponging and splatters in these Distress Ink colors: Salty Ocean/Picked Raspberry/Mowed Lawn/Mustard Seed
  • stamped the lights from Layered Lights on white card stock using Going Gray ink (Stampin' Up)
  • fussy cut my lights and added Silver Stickles to the tops
  • stamped the Plaid Background Stamp (Impression Obsession) in Distress Embossing Ink on colored card stock and added White Embossing Powder
  • stamped Layered Lights on each plaid background, fussy cut the bulb part, glued it to my white lights, sponged around the edges using the above colors of distress ink
  • popped up my lights using foam mounting tape
