For this post, I'm sharing an almost one layer card I created pairing some previous releases with the new He is Risen and  All in All sets. I started with bristol cardstock, then stamped the crown of thorns from He is Risen in distress ink and used a waterbrush to color it in, using just the stamped ink.

Next I stamped the three sentiment stamps from All in All to read Jesus paid it all. I pulled out some tumbled glass and broken china distress inks and blended all around for the background. Then I stamped tiny portions of the music background from Texture Tiles 1 in pecock feathers all around. I loved how things turned out, b ut felt I needed something in the corner. I decided on one of the hearts from the Filigree Hearts set. I was a little too chicken to commit to stamping it on this background I loved so much, so stamped it separately, then sponged with the same inks and cut out to pop up on the card.

I finished off with a few splatters of frayed burlap ink and some sponging around the edges.

Korin also has a couple of cards to share with you today featuring her Victory in Jesus set.
Have a look...

The next stop on the hop is my blog, Poetic Artistry, where I'm sharing another card and a process video. Before you go, here's a little look-see at the sets included in the NEW release...

First up... the February stamp of the month, Made New, is now available to purchase! This is a gorgeous collection of butterflies and sentiments themed around becoming made new in Christ.
Made New 4 x 6 set
 Next up is the March Stamp of the Month, Doodle Florals. This set is a lovely grouping of beautiful spring blooms and greenery. Perfect for backgrounds or for focal points, this set is only available during the month of March as a FREE gift with a $75 or more purchase.

Doodle Florals - 4 x 6 set (March Stamp of the Month)
Victory in Jesus is a timeless Easter set, with beautiful cross and Bible imagery. Use the Bible image as is, or mask off the words to place your own message inside. This set puts the true reason for Easter celebrations front and center.

Scripture Crosses includes two beautiful word art scripture crosses and some lovely flourish images. This set make elegant clean & simple Easter cards a breeze to put together.

He is Risen is a beautifully designed set in our Creative Worship collection. Classic Easter imagery combined with hand lettered sentiments lend itself easily to both cardmaking and bible journaling. The crown of thorns can be rotated and stamped again to complete the crown.

 All in All is another gorgeous hand lettered set in the Creative Worship line. Paired with the Easter imagery in other sets, this set makes some powerful and meaningful cards. And as the Creative Worship team has shared, absolutely gorgeous journaling pages.

All in All - 4 x 6 set

The final set in the March release is the fabulous Genuine Love set. This may be a small set, but it packs a BIG punch! The grungy solid images in this set are so much fun with layered stamping or faux watercolor techniques. Our team has been just wowing the Instagram world with the pairing of these beautiful images with the crown of thorns from He is Risen.

Genuine Love - 4 x 4 set

Love the new stamp sets! It's so hard to pick a favorite... I would choose Genuine Love at the moment ;)

Sheri Gilson said...

Fabulous release! Would have to say Genuine Love is my favorite this moth!

Stella said...

I like them all, but my favorites are probably He is Risen and All in All. I think they would be great in my Bible journaling!

Jill Norris said...

I can’t choose! I love them all. I think the “Genuine Love” set is so versatile but “All in All” and “He is Risen” would be great sets for my Bible journaling.

What a great release. I'm going to love seeing what your ladies have come up with...

Lyn said...

These are great cards! I am so overwhelmed by the possibilities in this release!

Esther Asbury said...

Three beautiful cards! Love the bits of music stamped on the first one - the text background on the second, and the bright/happy color scheme of the third!

Beautiful cards and fabulous new sets. My favorite set is Genuine Love with He Is Risen coming in at a close second. All the sets are so perfect for Bible Journaling.

Julee (Vervegirl) said...

Korin, I love your gorgeous cards! You've been a cardmaking machine lately! {grin} I'd say my current favorite from this release is the He is Risen set. Love how powerful the imagery and sentiments are.

TexaCana said...

Oh the possibilities!

Karen Decknick said...

Gorgeous cards! Made New and Scripture Crosses( I hope you come out with more of them) are my favorites! I do love the sweet Genuine Love set. I will be placing my very first order soon and choosing what to buy is so hard.

Kentucky Daisy said...

You are right; choosing a favorite is very difficult indeed. Just your examples here show that wonderful cards can be made with all the new sets. I will say that He is Risen and the Scripture Crosses are my favorites, though. They have truly unique elements that you don't usually see. I especially like the Empty Tomb!!! What a special symbol of the Resurrection!!! 💜💜💜

Cindy Holmes said...

Wonderful new stamp sets! I really love them all! But if I have to choose just one then I guess I would choose "Made New"

Parker said...

With Easter here soon, my favorite for that holiday will be He Is Risen. Thank you for such a great selection.

Christine said...

What a fabulous release! It is so hard to pick a favorite...I think mine is All in All...I adore Julee's card with this set!
