A Note of Thanks

Today's post is based on a template from Die Cuttin' Divas; you can find their link farther down in this post.

The die cut is from Spellbinders Lacy Ovals; the sentiment and flower stamps are retired SU stamps. The embossing folder is a Paper Studio Curls EF. Pearls in the upper right hand corner and a hand tied double-looped gingham bow add embellishments.


If you have any two part stamps from SU or any other brand, if they have a rubber backing, it can be hard to figure out exactly how to position the second stamp. The floral stamp below has the colored part and also the black outline part. If any of you have a MISTI or comparable stamping tool (I think mine is from Hampton Arts), you can stamp the colored part first. Then cut out a piece of acrylic from packaging that you don't need any more. Place the second stamp (outline stamp used with black ink) approximately where you think it should go, and put the acrylic piece down over the colored stamp part, and stamp with black ink on the acrylic piece. If the stamp is where you like it, go ahead and stamp the outline on the colored piece. If it is not, adjust the colored piece so that it lines up well with the acrylic piece you have just stamped; then remove the acrylic piece and make your final stamp.

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
