NEW STAMPS in the Etsy Shop NOW! Winners announced here...

Hello friends!
So much to share today!!  
First up, THIS SUNDAY I am starting a 31 Days of March: Beginning Bible Art Journaling and I hope you will join us over on the GodblessyourART blog !!  Nothing to buy or sign up for and my goal is to keep it so you can use what you currently have on hand to get started in this very fun and thoughtful way of going to Scripture! 

Today we have lots of stamps brand new to the etsy shop in stock and ready for you to purchase!
First up is one of our 2"x2" Single Scripture Stamps ($3.99) that is currently back in stock (it is one of our best sellers and a favorite verse of mine!):
I created this canvas panel using this stamp a while back:

 Next up is a BRAND NEW 2"x2" Single Scripture Stamp ($3.99) to Inspired Stamps:

There are 2 His Little Ones stamps ($4.49 each) that we are just now putting into the etsy shop:
 The first is His Little Ones: Boy Praying and the second I colored above next to him is His Little Ones: Girl Praying.  Here they each are on some card boxes I created a while back (the stitching and verse are from our BIND AND STITCH  stamp set, also in the store):

We have a BRAND NEW His Little Ones: Praying Girl 2 ($4.49) that is in the etsy shop now too:
I colored her in a few different color schemes so you could see her differently!

What fun!!  I'm so excited about all we have going on and hope you are too!

Remember we ALWAYS have New Stamps released on FRIDAYS
                       ALWAYS Free Shipping on US bound orders $25 and up (coupon code: 25freeshipping)
                       ALWAYS get your orders out as fast as possible (I try for same day or next day!)


So now let's talk about WINNERS of the Contest:  What Stamps would YOU like to see us make?
Thanks to everyone who gave ideas!!  A few we already have in the shop...and some were great ideas, but difficult to make using a hymn background. So....Here is what I chose:
                      *LINDA H gave a gardening idea....LOVE having a Hymn Girl: Gardening  set!
                      *SUE D gave a boat/lighthouse idea...LOVE this idea too and see so many ways to use this!
                      *SHANTA gave the Hymn family idea...which is perfect to go along with my new Mother's
                                                                 Day and Father's Day focused stamps I'm currently working on!

LINDA H, SUE D, and SHANTA---email me at THIS WEEK with your mailing address and as soon as I get these made, I will mail 2 of your idea out to you!!

Have a great week and I hope to see you over at the GodblessyourART blog on Sunday when we kick off our Beginning Bible Art Journaling month!!

New STAMPS in the etsy shop!! + Giveaway!!

Hello friends!
It NEW STAMP FRIDAY (as every Friday is in our etsy shop!) and we have 2 brand new stamps to share with you today.  First up is the one you see above we call BIBLE ART JOURNALING: BIBLE STUDY PHRASES.  I use these in my Bible and in Notes/Journals to help guide me with my study.  Here is a sample of it in my Art Journaling Bible over a passage in Luke 17 I studied in an inductive Bible Study I'm taking:
These stamps have really filled a need and draws attention to important things as I study what God is saying in the text, what the meaning is, and what type of application I am to take from that (be it something I learn about God, man, or a warning/instruction as in this case). 

We also have another 2x2" Single Scripture Stamp set now available in the online store:  COLOSSIANS 2:9:

Head over to the post that tells how YOU can share an idea for a stamp set and if we create one using your idea, get it for FREE (one for you and one to give a friend of yours!).  Click HERE to see the contest post and leave a comment!

GIVEAWAY: Win a Stamp that YOU have the idea for!!

Hello friends!
I am in the process of designing some new HYMN LINE stamps!!  This includes the HYMN LINE GIRLS (like our Hymn Girls: Caring Friend above) and the HYMN LINE SHAPES ( leaves, churches, mushrooms, flowers, etc). 

One of the fun things I like to do is to give YOU our fellow-stampers the opportunity from time to time to participate in the creation process!  And this week is one of those weeks!

Here is how this Giveaway works:
1. Go to our etsy shop at and look up all the CURRENT HYMN LINE stamps we have.
2. Then come back to this post (or any post this week) and leave us ONE idea  (only 1 idea per day, per household will be considered) on what YOU'D like to see us make into one of our HYMN LINE stamps.  For example, a HYMN GIRL with a puppy might be one you'd like to see that we don't have.  You'd leave that as your comment to this post.
3.  For another opportunity to leave your idea, visit our Facebook page and leave a comment under the FB post requesting ideas! (One idea per FB post, per day, per household please!). **Open to US and NON-US mailing addresses---everyone's invited to participate!**

IF we choose YOUR idea (we have a number of stamp designs already in the works, so we will choose one we do not have planned already or have in the store currently), we will create a stamp using your idea and send you 2 stamps absolutely free of charge once we get them in!  That will give you a free stamp and one to share with a friend!

**Let your friends know about our giveaway and tell them to let us know YOU sent them in their comment. If we choose their idea, we'll send you a free stamp too as a thank you for sharing us with your friend!  We will choose at least 1 idea (potentially more than 1!)**

**YOU HAVE UNTIL MIDNIGHT FEBRUARY 25TH  to get your comments here or on our facebook page in order for your suggestion to be considered**  Winners will be announced here on the blog on February 26th's New Stamp Release post so make sure you check back to see if you win!**

I'm excited to see what ideas you come up with!
