It's so exciting isn't it! an Anniversary Celebration and NEW stamps!!! woohoo! For my cards today I used Ironworks Borders (LOOVE them!) and Scripture Collection 4. All the stamps being released today are just amazing amazing!
For my first set of cards I did a simple design using this beautiful shimmer cardstock from Couture Cardstock. I thought it matched the Copper embossing powder from American Crafts perfectly. The background was embossed using my cuttlebug and one of my favorite embossing folders...it is sooo beautiful on the shimmer cardstock!
My next card is basically the same as the ones above, I just used a beautiful yellow and made it the standard A2 size. wouldn't that brighten someones day!
And while I'm feeling springy, I thought I'd share another colorful creation. This card uses the super fabulous "Flutter" paper by Making Memories. What do you think of this card? Is it too bright to be reverent? maybe maybe not....after all when you think about it- knowing that Jesus Christ is unchanging is something that should cheer our hearts and make us feel like singing! so that's is what is behind the feeling in this card.

I can't decide which card design I like best... I have to say that the verse you chose for your spring design is PERFECT. Spring is about watching the world change... what a great time to remind someone that God never changes.

Beautiful cards! The first ones in the dark color look like the verse is sitting on a square of embossed chocolate candy! Yum! Love the spring-y cards too.
Oh Natalie!! These are all so beautiful, yet different!! I love each and every one of them!! WOW
Wow! You were really in a card making mood! These cards are wonderful! And, I think, and this is of course only my opinion, I believe that the Lord knows the intentions of our hearts about the card we are making, and doesn't mind certain colors, or styles, as long as they are not hurting anyone. What was your intention? To show His word through a bright eye-catching format, or some other rude reason, that I can't even imagine! I love that wild card! I also love the others, too.
He IS Able,
All your cards are gorgeous! The yellow is my favorite but they are all wonderful!
Lovely, lovely cards. Very nice colors.
irreverant?, not at all. i think it screams the easter message.
I really liked all of your cards, but probably liked the ones with copper embossing the best! Each card really showcased the wonderful scripture verses. What a good job you did on all of them!
Wow, I loved all three of your cards. they are gorgeous
I like all of yuor cards especially the last one.

All four of these are awesome, I love all the texture in each one! I especially love the colors in the last one, it definitely says spring!
I think your colorful card really captures that we have reason to celebrate - not irreverent at all! I like them all but the colorful card is my favorite!
All just gorgoues, Natalie! Thanks so much for being part of ODBD! I appreciate all your friendship and talent!
