Hi readers! Happy Thursday! We’re always happy to welcome back guest designer Kelly Rasmussen to the blog! She made this gorgeous card in my favorite colors, and I didn’t even ask her to! ;) Read on and enjoy!


Hi everyone! I’m so happy to be back as a guest on the blog to share a card using the exclusive Prayers stamp set that was designed by Hero Arts for Simon Says Stamp. This was a STAMPtember® exclusive set that they are bringing back — yay! (COMING SOON!)

I started out by stamping the solid feather image from the Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day set four times across a white panel. To create the painted look, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the stamp, then spritzed it with water and stamped it. I held the stamp on the cardstock for about five seconds to give the water a chance to soak into the paper. And the end result is a beautiful hand painted look!

Next I die cut the word “prayers” once from My Favorite Things Steel Grey cardstock and twice from white cardstock. Then I adhered them together to create the dimensional sentiment. I also white heat embossed one of the coordinating messages on that same grey cardstock to finish off the message. Once the sentiment was adhered over the feathers I popped up the panel on an Audrey Blue card base.

I hope you enjoyed the card and wish you all a Happy New Year!



Thanks for reading today, and thanks so much to Kelly for being our guest!
