These cards use images from the Blessed Are plate from the Stampsmith. These stamps make wonderful cards for people of faith. I like to keep them quite simple so that the main image is the focus. I hope you enjoy them.
More details can be found at my blog.

I am addicted to making these easel cards at the moment. I like how you can have two parts of a quote on it, and see it all when displayed. This image is taken from the "isn't she lovely" plate.
The quote says " don't see yourself as 40, just 18 with 22 years experience"

The white card was covered with red and green patterned paper and card stock. The scallop and circle were gold embossed and used as the halos of the angels. Gold embossed wings and "heavenly" stars were added, and the words were created by computer.

On Saturday, I attended the Greater NY Art Stamp and Scrapbooking Show hosted by The Stampsmith and The Stamping Ground, here on Long Island. The vendors were great, as always, demonstrating lots of new techniques, and it was packed. I added many new stamps and supplies to my ever growing collection. There were loads of classes available, and I got to chat with Estelle at the Stampsmith booth. I highly recommend going next year if you live reasonably close, or stay right at the hotel and make a weekend of it. It's well worth the effort!

As Joanne has mentioned, the current Gingersnaps Creations challenge is Bling and nothing says that as well as the image from the Stampsmith by the same name. She is tastefully, heavily adorned with all the best bling.

The Gingersnap Creations challenge today was for chestnut movie stars. Johnny Depp is today's pirate prince, but Errol Flynn was the original swashbuckler. This stamp is from Estelle's At the Movies stamp sheet. What a smile he had, to capture the hearts of the ladies in the movie audiences!
Details of the card construction can be found at my blog.
This month The Stampsmith are teaming up with Gingersnap Creations to bring you a series of challenges where you can win Stampsmith products.
I have the enormous honour of being on both The Stampsmith and Gingersnap Design teams, so here is the piece that I made for the first of these challenges with the theme "movie stars" using an image from the Stampsmith's "kiss me you fool" plate.
