You're in My Prayers

I was able to ink up one of my newest sets the other day - Altenew's Beautiful Day set that I have been eyeing for months and months now.

It's one of those floral building sets, which I'm generally not great at using, but the great thing about this set is that it's very forgiving because you can choose not to use the solid layer which means you don't have to line things up perfectly and lining up things perfectly is my downfall.

Anyway, for this card I used just the leaf images.  There are three - the outline image, the solid, and then the detail stamp.  I used just the outline and detail layers.  

I stamped the panel and then cut about an inch out of it.  The stamped pieces were adhered directly to the card base.

For the sentiment I used another of my new sets, Hero Arts' Prayers Stamp and Cut set.  Prayers was die cut three times, adhered together and then to the base, and the secondary sentiment was stamped with Versafine.

That's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!  It's been quiet here, but I've got some fun things in store for you on Saturday (World Cardmaking Day) and Neat & Tangled's October release landed in my mailbox over the weekend


  1. Love this! So soft and pretty - perfectly compliment each other!

  2. Gorgeous and love the design! I'm not that great with layering stamps either, and love how you just use the outline and detail to create this beautiful card! TFS

  3. This is a really beautiful card, Miriiam. I love the seaparation into two parts with the prayers diecut between! I thought you might have used glossy accents as the word has a sort of shine to it.

  4. Beautiful card! I just got that Altenew set the other day, a very generous friend sent it to me along with a couple other stamp sets. Isn't it just gorgeous! I absolutely love it :)

  5. Love the bold, white panel housing part of your sentiment, and the leafy background is so simply stated. Yum! I have this stamp set/die combo and don't use it enough. Thanks for the inspiration!
