I used this oh so adorable His Little Ones: Patriotic Girl With Heart from our generous sponsor Inspired Stamps. Each and every His Little Ones stamp from Inspired Stamps is precious! Go check them out.

I combined the Romans 10:17 scripture stamp with the Flower Buds stamp set, both from Inspired Stamps, for my next card. I masked and stamped repeatedly two of the roses from the Flower Buds set to create a floral background. I then stamped two of the larger buds on some scraps, colored them, then cut and layered to create a dimensional flower. I sprayed the red flower with pearl mist for some shimmer. I love this scripture and think the beauty of the rose is a perfect match for it.


  1. Two great cards Mary Jo. That little girl is such a cute image.

  6. Wow - both cards are stunning. but the masking is really very effective. can't believe the work that must have gone into it to make it perfect! Worth it!
