Stamping Easy

Good morning! I woke up at 5:00 am with an idea in my head that wouldn't go away, so here I am posting the idea come alive at 7:30.
I am still not tired of playing with my "Light of the World" set from
Our Daily Bread Designs.

I keep telling Kelley how much I LOVE this set. I am NOT kidding. And wait until you see what else she has in store for you and I. Her concept of an image along with a handful of scriptures to go along with it is BRILLIANT! And I know there is a niche for it.
When I was at Target the other day, I found these plain red "Hot Hues" notecards and envelopes on clearance. [Well..... it was plain red anyway.] I used my Paper Studio border punch along the bottom and then my Fiskars "Cloud" scissors to make the scalloped edge. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the "Swiss Dots" embossing folder {my first time sing this folder, but certainly NOT my last.... I LOVE it!}. For the verse, I simply stamped off with Rose Red (not a perfect match, but close) using the SU Musical Score background and then the verse with Palette Black Noir ink, punched it out with an oval punch and then mounted it onto a black scalloped oval punch. The Hobby Lobby sheer dotted ribbon adds the finishing touch.
{I took a picture of the scrap piece of paper I used to punch out my black scalloped oval.... just to show you how seriously I use my scraps! This is a leftover piece of black cardstock from a Set Sampler Header back when I was a Stampin Up demonstrator! Yes, there is a hole in the middle of the punched out piece, but I covered it and nobody will ever see it. If I didn't use my scraps like I do.... quite simply, I would NOT be able to afford this craft.}

I know I teased you earlier in the week...and I will be back later today with that blog candy I promised you!
Have a Fun day!
