Inspired Stamps- DT Thursday

 Hello Everyone!  Today the Inspired Stamps DT will be showing their scripture projects.  Inspired Stamps has a great variety of scripture verses to choose from in their online store.  You are sure to find some of your favorite verses to use in your art projects.

I made this card to encourage those who are going through a rough patch in life, when things don't seem to make sense.  These are the times that we rely on God and put our hope in Him.  I used the Thinking of You set and dp from My Minds Eye, girly girl collection.  I added a little glitter to my flowers in the corner after I colored them with my Copic markers.
I cut  three different sized banners and overlapped.  I found a great tip for cutting the tails somewhere in the blog-o-sphere.  (The amount of info is great, but I can't remember where I find tips sometimes because I have visited so many sites, sorry:)).  If you have different sized square punches, cut your strips to those sizes and then insert the strip into the punch to cut out the triangle piece.  The tails will be even on both sides of the strip.  I know some of you are successful using your scissors and eyeballing it, but sometimes mine come out lopsided, so this tip is great for me.  I do have many different sized square punches in my toolkit.
I hope you put your hope in the Lord today and have a great day.  Be sure to check out the wonderful designs by the other DT members and to check out the Inspired Stamps blog to see all the projects, including the 52 Weeks of Gratitude projects.
