The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand.
What a wonderful promise. I am thankful to God that He upholds me with His hand.
Recipe: Stitched Exotics and Stitched stamp sets. Cardstock: So Saffron, Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke. Stampin' Pastels, Versamark pad, Artichoke ribbon, slot punch. I used the Poppin' Pastels technique.
For the month of June we had a sneak peek of the new stamp set Fresh Cuts and the Fresh Cuts Cards. I love both!
For the Spotlighting Technique I used shimmery white cardstock. I love this cardstock and it is my favorite. I stamped the image twice with black StazOn. I then punched out the piece I wanted to spotlight with the 1-1/4 inch circle punch. I colored with a blender pen and the pad lids. I had never done this technique before and I enjoyed it very much.
In the Stamp-a-ma-jig Technique I used the Fresh Cuts notecards. I use this a lot to make sure what I am stamping is straight or for a 2 step stamp that is a little difficult to line up. The colors and cardstock I used were Lavendar Lace and Sahara Sand. The flower punch works wonderful with this set. The stamp-a-ma-jig was used to line up the flower in the center and for you at the bottom of the card.
