Beautiful Cross

I could not resist Nichole's most recent release. This is a beautiful religious set and she has used some of the most heartfelt verses from the Bible in it! This will be wonderful for encouragement, sympathy and inspirational cards. You can find this Papertrey set following THIS link.
I also adore her new line of paper. The bottom half of this card is her dp and the top half is the new spring moss color stamped and embossed in white, leaving space for my Bible verse stamped in black.

I did get a little creative with the cross. I used Papertrey's "out on a limb" set for the tiny flowers and the grass. I used my copic black liner pen (0.3) to create the vine that the flowers attach to. I also colored in my cross with my YG91 (putty) copic marker which is a fairly close color match to this spring moss. I did some careful stitching and topped off with some satin ribbon.

A side note....I bought an ATG gun for adhesive today, I don't know what took me so long! What a nice strong hold it has!

Happy Stamping!

ok, I messed with this new set ALL afternoon and I did not have as much luck with it as you apparently did! This is gorgeous. It makes me want to sell my set because for some reason, I can do nothing with it!

Fabulous!

Truly amazing. I love how you embellished the cross with the vine and flowers, simpy fabulous work. TFS.

I think the ATG gun is one of the best tools when it comes to sticking things together. Enjoy and TFS.
