and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

My first sample was made using the Armor of God stamp set.


Creative Nugget:  One of the metallic papers from the Winter Collection was a perfect  background for the Armor of God card.  Frames were cut from silver card stock using the Majestic Medallions Dies, the Rectangle Dies, the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Pierced Ovals Dies.  The Armor of God image was colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and popped onto the left side of the card with mounting tape.  The silver embossed sentiments was cut with one of the Ovals Dies to finish the card.

My second card was made with the new Sending My Love Stamp & Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:   The stitched layers on the card were made using papers from the new Birthday Brights Paper Collection, Smokey Shadow and Neenah Solar Crest card stock.  Copic Markers were again used to color the Wishing Well.  A few clouds were sponged using one of the die cuts from the Clouds & Raindrops die set as a mask.  The Sending word die included in the Sending My Love Stamp & Duo set was cut once from the patterned paper and twice from white card stock as well as from the front of the Wishing Well panel.  These were all layered and pieced back into the cut made on the front of the card.  The sentiment was white embossed on a piece cut using the Log Cabin Quilt Die…**love using these pieces for small sentiments!  A Bitty Border was cut from the patterned paper to frame the sentiment, and a few butterflies cut using the new Bitty Butterflies Dies were added.  A white grid ribbon bow and some rhinestones were added to finish the card.

Here are the fabulous new products being released by

Birdmer said...

Hi Cathy - I really love your idea of fussy cutting the suit of armor out and making it 'pop'. Also, using the metallic background paper is a wonderful effect - really gives it 'oomph' with the lattice-like design! Thanks for all your awesome ideas! Robin M.

Beck McDaniel said...

I really like the wishing well. Very nice!

I love, love, love your armor of God creation, I.m always telling my Sunday school class and Bible study class to put on armor every day, how could I not buy this set?

Linda Carson said...

Wow! Your Armor card is amazing! The wishing well is gorgeous! Love your eye for details!

Donna said...

I have always loved the Wishing well set, it reminds me of my grandpa, he built a small wishing well in his backyard and always put change in it so when the grandkids and great grandkids came over, they had something to look forward to pulling up.
I have a new love now, the Armour set if very neat. I love the card made with it

Sparkly Engineer said...

Everything after the first card was icing on the cake. I absolutely love how you used the metallic background. I cannot wait to get this stamp. We are using this as our bible study during the summer

TLady said...

WHAT A WONDERFUL JOB you've done Cathy! My daughter appreciates the fact that PRAYER was included in the Armour of God, with the sentiment you've used on your card! It is included in the Scripture passage & most leave it out as a weapon. ;) I LOVE the foiled paper you've used too. It is PERFECT! Your second card is FABULOUS ALSO! ;)

Wow, Cathy, your first card is amazing with the armored man! I love the metallic papers you've used, along with the silver card stock. It looks like he really is dimensional and was die cut! Just pops off the card. And what a great sentiment - so very true! Your second card is so sweet, and I love the plaid and this sweet wishing well! Beautifully done, sweet friend! Hugs and love!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Fantastic cards Cathy. The metallic papers look perfect with the Armor of God image. Perfect coloring too. The wishing well is so pretty...love the checkered paper. I went to a stamp show couple of weeks ago and was trying to figure out which cards would be yours at the ODB booth. :) I picked up the cathedral window stamp/die set. :)
