Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse - new stamp!!

A couple months ago Sue from Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co. emailed me and asked if I'd be interested in designing a lighthouse stamp for her. She wanted something unique and different, and sent me a photo of the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse. The design below is what I came up with, by playing with the photo digitally and adding some lines for clarification. Cool, huh? I love lighthouses, and this one is certainly unique in its structure and position over the water. Well, Sue is ready to release this lighthouse stamp to the public, and she's created a whole bunch of really cool lighthouse-y verse and inspirational stamps to go along with it! I've had a little bit of time to play with mine, and you can see my cards below. Still have some ideas to come......

This didn't photograph so well...the lighthouse is stamped on vellum that has a bit of a metallic sheen on it, and it glared a bit. The sentiment says, "Jesus is our Safe Harbor". know when eyelets were "in" I bought a billion in every color and then hoarded them, afraid to run out...well, girls - I am using them now!

I used vellum on this card too.....First I colored the lighthouse image with pencils, then stamped the vellum layer, added a base layer, and sewed the 3 panels together. The verse says, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?" Awesome, awesome truth.

If you've never checked out Heart & Soul and you're on the lookout for great sentiments, you should browse around the online catalog. There's definitely something there you need! And remember that unmounted stamps are just $1.50 a piece. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a beautiful lighthouse. I love the cards you made with it!

  2. I love lighthouses, and this one is no exception - what wonderful detail. The verse that goes with that one is even better. You did a great job with it. I so enjoy reading your blog, watching you design, and keeping up with your life. You are being prayed for here in mid-Michigan. God bless you. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan
