ODBD - SinglesWishingWords

Circles


If you do bible journaling or just want to stamp in your personal journal, these stamps were created for just that! You’ll see samples when you visit the rest of team. These stamps also work great for a card or bookmark!

YourHeartWM

For my card, I stamped Your Heart once in Memento Rich Cocoa for the base, then stamped again inking up the banners and heart in Memento Nautical Blue and Colorbox Chalk Warm Red, I then hand cut each and popped them up over the base.

I also used Double Stitched Rectangles, elongating the rectangle a bit and Beautiful Borders dies. This card fits a regular envelope 3 5/8 x 6 1/2.

YourHeart-sd

WishingWordsCirc-WM

My second sample uses the very versatile Wishing Words set and the Circles dies that coordinate with Double Stitched Circles.

I also used Shabby Rose Collection, Pretty Posies, Lovely Leaves, and Fancy Foliage. Flower centers are Ranger Liquid Pearls, ink is Ranger Jet Black and Colorbox Rouge.

Fabulous new Bible journalling stamps! Although I don't have (nor intend to buy one) a journalling Bible, I hope to use some of these stamps in my mixed media and card creations. I love how you coloured this one. Many blessings for a happy and successful new year.

Dear Dawn,
...first of all the Lords blessings for you in 2016, and His keeping all the way through.

I love your skilled execution of Proverbs 3:5,6 brilliant simplicity highlights, illumine the precious word.
The colours and extra accoutrements made it a great work, thank you. It blessed my heart today. I am not well enough to hop around but wanted to say thank you, for how it pointed my eyes to Him.

Was given this verse as many of us were in our early Christian walk.
This set is a wonderful release, thank you,

Both of your cards are so amazing! I loved the texture of your second card and the way you designed your first one using the Bible art journaling stamp with the ribbon on one side and the lacy die on the right. The most unique inspiring part was the way you cut out the words and pop dotted them. What a great idea!
