I also have a special note to add from Betsy. "While designing this set, I felt the Lord nudging me to do something special with it — to use His name to help bring joy and the Good News to others. In response to that, I have decided that I will be taking my portion of the sales of both the stamp set and the coordinating die, and also matching it with my own funds, I will use it to fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. If you're not familiar with Operation Christmas Child, you can read more about it HERE."
So by purchasing this set, not only are you giving yourself a gift to use over and over again in your paper creations, but you are giving a gift to a child in need this Christmas!

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!
I like to keep things pretty simple when it comes to holiday card designs since most likely I will be creating multiples. This card is a perfect example of that.
I started by stamping the dove from Christmas Faith in VersaMark and heat embossing it in white. I then sponged Aqua Mist ink over the top of it using a circular motion, working from the center out. I stamped right over the top of the dove with the new Shine set using Tropical Teal, and used my sponge to wipe off the stamping on top of the dove (the heat embossing resists ink).
Then I just added a little sentiment strip. This was stamped in True Black and accented with two small leaves from Christmas Faith as well, stamped in Simply Chartreuse.
Heather's new set can also be used for other types of cards, here I have paired up some of the images with Menorah Medley to create a Hanukkah card.
The doves were die-cut from white cardstock and sponged with Spring Rain. They frame a wreath stamped with some of the leaves from Christmas Faith using Olive Twist and Ripe Avocado. The Star of David is highlighting the center, added in Summer Sunrise.
I used a black pen to add a string to hang the Star of David, and stamped the sentiment in True Black.
One last project I have to share uses one of the many gorgeous sentiments from A Thrill of Hope. I just love this particular one and thought this image was fitting to go along with it.
I stamped the Stained Glass image in Fresh Snow and colored it in with Copic markers. I felt like the baby Jesus was not standing out enough, so I stamped the image again on a gold foil adhesive sheet and cut out that portion and applied it to the image. I also added some Glossy Accents to just the star to give it more emphasis.
Now that you have seen a few of my creations, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!
Amy says, "Faith-based holiday images and sentiments are always personal favorites for holiday crafting, and this month, there are so many to choose from. If you love word die-cuts and Scripture, Betsy's Inspired: Jesus is perfect. If you love mixed-font sentiments, you'll welcome Dawn's Thrill of Hope. And Heather's Christmas Faith has powerful, simple imagery and sentiments that are as well-suited for rustic and folk designs as for traditional elegance. Today's products are sure to speak to the hearts of both the giver and receiver."
