The Joy of the LORD

 Nehemiah 8:10 tells us that, "The joy of the LORD
is your strength."
Because this is one of my favorite scriptures
I decided to use an Our Daily Bread stamp 
as the basic template and make my own in PSP X.
If you don't do PSP or Photo Shop you can
definitely get some wonderful scripture stamps

The top scripture has been die cut with a
Spellbinders tag die. The one on the 
bottom card is simply cut using a click blade 
and a quilting ruler then layered over dark
purple card stock that was cut to a narrow
border using a Perfect Layers ruler.
The blue card has a background of pale blue 
polished stone (alcohol ink on glossy card stock)
that has the edges sponged in black ink.
The flower images are from Hero Arts and
have been stamped with VersaMark and
heat embossed with fine line black embossing powder.

The lavender and purple card has polished stone
used on the oval and the holes in the lacy scallops.
There background is a lavender card stock 
that has been textured using an embossing folder.
The oval and the scallop borders are from
Spellbinder dies.

I matched the lavender polished stone to the
holes in the scallops by simply cutting plain scallops
in the polished stone (no holes in this one) and
gluing the dark purple lacy scallop over.
