RCC78 - He Lives!

Hi there!! 

I used the Jesus Paid it All stamp set by Sweet n Sassy Stamps as well as the coordinating Calvary die. This is such a beautiful stamp set! I sponged a sky background and stamped the sentiment onto it. I cut out the crosses with the die and adhered them with foam tape. I used some pretty springtime papers from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection. I finished off my card with some pearls and ribbon.

With Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi there! 

Unfortunately, every now and then the occasion arises when you need a sympathy card. They're the kind of cards that I never have on hand since they're not exactly fun to make. 

I made this one today using Bridge of Hope by Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I decided to leave my image uncolored and stamped it on Kraft paper. The papers are from My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody. I didn't seem to know where to stop with this card and kept adding lots of details and embellishments...twine, pearls, flowers, and more! I also did a lot of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day! :)
