My mom saw a sample card at Stamping Day & Night, a stamp store in northern Indiana, that she really loved. It was made with an edge punch and a Great Impressions flower stamp, using white cs & a strip of dp or colored cs. It was a very simple layout with a short sentiment added to the front, but was embellished with paper flowers. The sample was stunning in it's simplicity.
I decided - like any good stamper does - to CASE the idea! How wonderful it was to discover that my Plain Jane verse stamps by Verve fit just right into the space between the punched edge and the stamped image!! I was sooooo excited! I've made several cards, using a variety of edge punches and a variety of colors. As you can see, it works on the long or short edge of the card.
I'm always concerned with blessing the recipient of my cards....I want to share the love of Jesus. But I have to tell you that every time I use these stamps, the Lord uses it to bless me. We all need those encouraging words to help us re-focus on Truth.
The two verses you can't see in my last picture are Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord. and Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, rejoice!
Wonderful Wednesday wishes, Laurie
