Taste and See: The Lord is Good!

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good. How blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8

These cards were made in honor of two sweet friends to celebrate their big news which was announced today!

Both are very gifted artists who use their talents to honor and glorify the Lord and help those of us in the crafting world, do the same. . .I am so thankful for the Lord's gift of sweet sisters in Christ, Laura Kirste Campbell and Nina Brackett.

I met both through Layers of Color stamps, a company owned by Laura and her family. Many of the beautiful stamp sets were designed by Laura and many others by Nina. Laura also designs die templates and embossing folders for Spellbinders and Nina has designed stamps for several companies, as well as having her own line of die templates through Spellbinders.

  1. Such incredible images and dies! Love how you've brought together so many delightful elements for each of these! Beautiful!

  2. So, so YOU ;0)!

  3. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set. I will have to check out their other stamp sets as well. This turned out SO cute, and I especially love the big bright bow with the center gem, and the added burlap. Just all comes together beautifully. Thank you, my friend, for sharing this in our challenge at Word Art Wednesday. May God richly bless your week!
