He is risen!

Good Morning, friends ♥

One of the things I love so much about this craft (hobby!)
 is creating with stamps of faith!
My faith is something that I keep close to my heart ~
and in trying times, let it encourage and guide me.

And The Project Bin has just a perfect stamp set for creating cards of faith!
Spring Zen is a brand new stamp set that is perfect for spring,
Easter and the bold and powerful message of Christ!
One of my favorite scriptures has always been Matthew 28:6
"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said"

So in creating my card today, I knew I wanted a cross on a hill with a sunset.  
I got out my watercolor pans and watercolor paper and 
made bold brushstrokes across the paper with vibrant colors.
Then I stamped out the zentangle cross onto another
watercolor piece and fussy cut that out with scissors.
To give it a bit more of an edgy look, I die cut the panel
to give the card more dimension with a seperated-die idea.
Not sure if it's a technique, but it just came to me when I was 
about to glue the panel down!
The sentiment is the perfect addition and really finishes off the card,
as well as on the inside.

This style of card is perfect for your pastor, church staff, and more!

You can find this fabulous stamp set here in the shop ~
perfect time to get a head start on your Easter cards!

And remember! If you click on any photo, it will take you to a gallery
with wonderful samples made with the stamps - tons of inspiration!

Thanks so much for your visit!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
