1 million views! Card making, Magenta Stamps, Alcohol Marker Painting, Sharing my Faith
Hello Everyone, thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to stop over to my blog. I continue to be surprised by the number of visits I have had. I have been blogging for over 10 years now, and my "stats tell me that there have been over 1 million visits to 1200+ posts. That to me is astounding. Honestly I'm not that interesting and I know my "stamping" is a little old school, and even older my main subject, my true love, the Word of God. If you are reading this, you most likely know It is the one thing in this world that will stand forever as the truth. Making sure our life is lived according to its plan is the only thing that matters - we too are eternal beings, and what we do now or I should say give now, determines how our personal "rest of the story" plays out.
I love card making to share the Word, and I love helping you in your crafty world to do the same.
Today I have a wonderful verse made with a delightful vintage Magenta Stamp. This is considered a bookmark stamp and I have made a lot of bookmarks with it! It heat embosses beautifully!
I originally made the card for a challenge at Christian Card Makers that I hosted using one of your oldest stamps. This one was from I think 1992. Magenta Company is my long-standing favorite stamp maker. They are a family-owned business that began back in the 1980s. I've worked on their design team and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Magenta has stood the test of time and weathered the storms that most companies from their start era have sadly not.
A newer stamp company that I also really love is located a mere 35 minutes from my home in NY- Altenew. They are pretty awesome at innovating new techniques and of course, flower designs - never too many beautiful flowers!
Beeswax Rubber Stamps, is a Husband - Wife owned business out of California that is fun and funky, like Magenta, it offers its stamps in 3 forms - naked rubber, cling mount, and wood mount.
