I have a couple of cards using this set! I love it very much and you will see more creations from me using this set.My cards are very Clean and Simple, but I love the little extra details I added :)

His Mercies are new Every Morning

Instructions:
  • Make card base from Coffee Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from White Cardstock (5" x 3.75").
  • Start adding a piece of paper to cover the part you don't want to sponge. TIP: I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape, super easy to remove.
  • Start sponging your background with the lightest color and move to the next until you get the BG you want. Colors I used: Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Wild Honey.
  • Stamp silhouette image in Jet Black Archival.
  • Stamp sentiment in Jet Black Archival. Sentiment is from "Be Encouraged"
  • Die cut a couple of clouds from Vellum, Add them to card with glue dots. TIP: To cover the glue dot I used gold sequins.
  • Add Seam Binding Ribbon: TIP: I dyed my own white ribbon with the inks I used to coordinate with my card :)


=======================================================

Faith is: This is a very Clean and Simple card, I made it in 5 minutes :)

Instructions:
  • Make card base from Light Blue Metallic Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from Dark Blue Metallic Cardstock. (4 5/8" x 3 3/8")
  • Cut a panel from White Cardstock.(4 3/8" x  3 1/8), spray Taxi Color mist (Mister Huey's) to create a Background, let it dry (it dries pretty fast).
