A New Stamp....

that just happens to be a favorite Bible verse. I used the color combo for the current Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge #26 ( I really want to win the Lawn Fawn "Frosties" set). The verse stamp is from Stampendous, I found it at Stamp Fever on Saturday. I paired it with a favorite Hero Arts cling stamp- Garden Bouquet.....
.....which is stamped on PTI Smokey Shadow cs with VersaMark ink and clear embossed. Then I over-stamped it with VersaMark several times to add some texture and pattern to the background. The verse is stamped on white cs with Memento Tuxedo Black and the Garden Bouquet is over-stamped with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I used Hero Hues Layering paper in Cerulean to make the card base, the punched border and to mat the sentiment. I used an EK Success Swirl border punch. TFL!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ~ "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."

blessings,
nancy
