Crafters of Faith January Blog Hop

Good morning!  We went from winter last week (even snow!) to spring like weather - we're supposed to have temps in the 70's today.  I can remember being able to store my spring and summer clothes during the winter, but not anymore.

Today I have a card for our monthly blog hop.  I belong to the Crafters of Faith blogging group on Splitcoaststampers.  The challenge is hosted by Sharon this month and she has asked us to use both old and new stash and tell what's old and new.  We were also challenged to use a new technique.  Here's my creation:




I used Flourishes Lenten Rose stamp for my image and colored with my Copic markers.  I used a new embossing folder (new to me), Cuttlebug's Julie's Garden.  My SU border punch is old, as well as my ribbon and SU card stock.  My hearts were cut with a Creative Memories punch which I still consider "new".  My new technique is Triple Stamping by Joan Ervin and is listed under tutorials at Splitcoaststampers.

This was fun trying out something new!  Please take a moment and visit my blogging sister's blogs, you make get inspired to try a new technique!  They are listed on my sidebar.

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate your support and love reading all your comments!
