Our Daily Bread Scriptures

Hi again, wow what a day. As well as being a stamper I manager a small co-operative cable tv system. Cable went out yesterday for some reason. I have had soooooooooo many calls. I wish I could tell them all to come and stamp and forget TV. LOL

It would be much better for them, don't you think? I like TV too but there is more to life than TV. Anyway enough belly aching.

I have never made a card with a cut out before so I thought I would give it a try. Turned out not to bad. Very simple but elegant.

I am not sure how others line things up so they come out in the cut out section perfectly, but I drew a light pencil mark around the oval cut out and then used the Stamp ma Jig to be sure I would stay in those lines. I also inked up the scripture and used the stamp ma jig to position it as well. I should mention that I checked where the verse would sit on the flower branch and saw that if I omitted one leaf branch it would fit correctly. Using the stamp ma jig is a great time/paper saver, as you can see were your images are going to go before you mess up your good card.


At my copic certification course I was given a couple of the Spicia Pens. They are really something. I first thought that they were just like the other glitter pens out there but no way, they are way cool. One of my pens is colorless, so what ever color you put it on it stays the same color. You can't see it in the picture but I put the pink one I have in the flower centers and the colorless one on the petals. It gives it a very pretty sparkle.

Thanks for dropping by.
