I am a designer for STAMPlorations.

My project for the hop is not just one happy card, 
I made several Artist Trading Cards, (ATC) 
and I also made an ATC holder.
I use the ATCs to journal bible verses on.


  To hold the box shut I made a belly band. 
 On the belly band and inside the box I used:

preview-DAI-Anchored






On inside of box I journaled Hebrews 16:9





If you would like to make an ATC holder 
you can check out this tutorial 
 by the late Melissa Lane. 



These 4 ATC were done with watercolors. 






Not only is STAMPlorations offering a $25 gift code on the STAMPlorations Blog, but they are also allowing each designer to give away a $10 gift code.So to win my gift code, in the comments, let me know what is your favorite bible verse, if you don't have a favorite bible verse, leave a happy sentiment that makes you smile.

  3. This is a gorgous box! I love the little ATC cards. Thanks for participating in the hop! How fun! I can't really tell you which is my favorite scripture because I think they change day to day. BUT I have been through some tough things the last couple of years and the scripture that has lowered my heart rate and placed me in the best mindset is Psalm 23. The Lord is my shepherd.... Hugs and healthy prayers your way!

  21. Favorite Bible verse...so difficult to choose just one, but Jeremiah 29:11has given me comfort recently.
    ”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love that you used a bible verse. Great project.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Loving this project MariLynn, and the fact that you have put so much time and love into it. The ATC's are so pretty, and that is a fabulous holder. One of my favourite verses is Philippians 1:6 - I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
    Stay safe
    Blessings

  59. What a great project!! The little box is adorable and the ATCs are perfect for keeping some favorite verses right at hand. Two of my favorite verses are: Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." and "2 Chronicles 20:12b "we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you." It's very fitting for this time in our lives. We don't know what to do, but we have to keep our eyes fixed on God, because He is not taken by surprise by this virus and He does know what to do!
