Growing In Unity :: Day 1 - Your Light Shines Card


Welcome to the 1st day of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

Stay tuned each day this week as I show you something I've created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company...and be sure to comment on each of my Growing In Unity posts this week because Unity Stamp Company is allowing me to give away some free stamps!

If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!

It's no secret that I love all things to do with mason jars (except canning...I haven't done that before...ha!). As soon as I saw this cute stamp (Your Light Shines by Joslyn Nielson) I knew I wanted to stamp with it.
(And...bonus...the sentiment stamp happens to have the words to a song I love - Hillsong's "From The Inside Out".)
I created this simple card sketch to go along with the stamp and sentiment and just added a hint of coloring on the stars. I love how it turned out, and with this design it is easy to create 3 cards at the same time...so I have extras!

Hi Tifany. I really love your card. I too love mason jars (I DO can, pickle & preserve) but I love them for everything, even on cards! LOL
I really must mix more of my patterned papers. Yours is so sweet! TFS!

That's a lovely card -- I am drawn to simplicity myself, and this is just perfect. And I never realized that the quote was from one of my favorite songs! Silly me.
