April Sneak Peeks and Paper Piercing Tutorial!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you a couple of cards I created with some brand new stamps from Our Daily Bread designs (available April 1st!). I made these while I was filming a Paper Piercing / Faux Stitching Tutorial over at the Our Daily Bread designs blog.....check out the tutorial HERE.

I LOVE this new stamp, the Prayer of St. Francis! It has been a favorite of mine for many years....I will store this stamp on the shelf next to the Mother Teresa sets by Our Daily Bread designs......oh, in case you're a Mother Teresa fan, those sets are 'Mother Teresa', 'Let Us Begin', and there is a quote from her on one of the March releases, 'Spread Light'!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Prayer of St. Francis' (will be available April 1st);
Cardstock: Stampin Up Pear Pizazz and Very Vanilla;
Designer Paper: Prima 'Romantique';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black and Stampin Up Pear Pizazz;
Accessories: Spellbinders Grand Calibur (LOVE!), Grand Labels One Dies, Cheery Lynn Designs 'Fanciful Flourish', Prima Flower, Foam Tape, Paper Piercer;
Size: Approx 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

To find out how to make shaped cards with your Spellbinder dies and Grand Calibur, check out a tutorial HERE!

Another card I made for the Paper Piercing tutorial features the new 'Cat Sympathy' set....isn't this Kitty adorable?! Pets are part of our families and it sure is tough when we have to say goodbye. I could have used this (and the 'Dog Sympathy' set) many times already, unfortunately.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Cat Sympathy' (will be available April 1st);
Cardstock: Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: My Mind's Eye 'Lost and Found - Rosy';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up Markers;

Size: 6 x 4-3/4.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend!!!
