~Grace is Enough~

Are you ready for new stamps and dies??!!  We have two sentiment stamp sets (Mercy and Grace), with just gorgeous scripture AND a new die set of crosses.

We’re just a month out from Easter and these sets are so perfect for Easter (but also sympathy, thinking of you, etc).

I chose to work with “GRACE” first.  Grace is a concept that I struggled with as a new Christian (many moons ago).  Grace is a gift.  I could not comprehend how I had earned such a gift.  My pastor drilled it into me that no one is worthy, that’s why it’s a GIFT!  He drilled the GRACE cipher : God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.

It’s not easy to see by the photo, but the crosses emboss quite well.  I ran it through my die cut machine twice with an extra shim.

I added stickles to the flowers to give them more interest.  They sparkle way more than the photos show.

I don’t normally add an inside sentiment, but this one was too perfect to pass up!
