With the new Idea Book & Catalogue we gained lots of lovely new stamp sets and one that grabbed me as soon as I saw it was Thoughts and Prayers. I’ve been hounding Stampin’ Up! in Australia to get more of the inspirational sets into our catalogue that the girls in USA & Canada have had for years and finally its happened – we now have a few inspirational and christian stamp sets and I think thats great!urbanprayers

Recently I’ve had a few friends who have lost a parent to illness or from a tragic accident and I’ve had a few others going through a hard time with their health so I wanted to send them a card to let them know that I was thinking of them and praying for them

This is a card I created the other day for this very reason. Its a simple and elegant card (well I think it is) which also happens to be a very quick card too which is sometimes what you need for friends or family during trials of any kind.


Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden Designer Series Paper.
Inks: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive

So as you can see – not only is it a simple card and easy to do but you dont need much to make it either! Gotta love the Stampin Up DSP as they’ve chosen the colours for you already and it all matches and coordinates with our cardstock and inks!

  1. Lovely card. This set of stamps is great and suitable for many occasions. It is not often that Christian sentiments are so simply presented. Well done

  2. Hi Leonie!
    Haven’t been doing much blog hopping while my computer has been on the blink!!! But … finally thought I would just pop over to see what you have been doing! This is simply stunning! I love this set … and it was definitely on my wish list … but am rethinking since I found out it was double mounted!!! Where do you put the stickers??? But … it is still so very pretty! Thanks for sharing!
    Stampin’ Hugs, Andrea

  3. Lovely card. I’m glad SU! included this set for you; it is a lovely set and just wonderful, especially for the reasons you stated. TFS!
