Refuge and Strength

My mom came to visit for Thanksgiving and I asked her to bring a few of her stamp sets so I could help her make Christmas ofthe sets she brought was Refuge and Strength which has been on my wishlist for a long time but never seems to make my order. I took the opportunity while she was here to make these cards with it (forgive the photography, she loved the cards and took them with her and I barely had time to snap some quick pics on the dining table before she stuck them in her purse!!)

This first card was made my stamping my verse and cross in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla Cardstock. both were matted on Soft Suede cardstock and adheres to textured Very Vanilla cardstock on a Kraft Card base. (Stampin' Dimensionals help Pop the verse above the cross layer.) A quick Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon finished off the card.

This second card started with a scrap of Sage Shadow paper I had...I stamped my cross image in Versamark for a watermark effect. After it dried I stamped the sentiment over top it in Jet Black Stazon. This was matter on Basic Black cardstock. My cardbase was Whipser white, layered with Basic Black and more Whisper White. A Sage Shadow Grosgrain ribbon adds the perfect touch!

I really love how these cards turned out, its always fun to play with new stamp sets! I'd just love your feedback as well!

Really pretty the simplicity, it just made the verses and images stand out even more. Jan
