First up for me today is Faith in Bloom, which is a new set illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line of stamps.  

Pin It

The flowers in this image are actually 2 stamps - the two flowers on the left are one stamp and then I added the flower on the right.  They are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  

Next up is another fabulous Word a la Carte illustrated by Taylor - Faith.

I'm using Taylor's TESC152 for the layout on this card.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo black on both Choice Snow White cardstock and a sheet of Miss Caroline Dolled Up patterned paper from My Mind's Eye so I could paper piece the letters.  Somehow I can't let a flower just be a flower, I have to add a button and bow to it too.

There is plenty more to see today!  Please stop by and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have whipped up for you.
Here is the Taylored Die I used today:



Thanks so much for stopping by!
