Flashback Friday Favorite ...Light of the World

We are starting a brand new weekly post called Flashback Friday Favorites (FFF) where we'll revisit a classic set.  We know many of you, as well as us, get excited about brand new releases, but we wanted to show you what had been made with the previously released sets that new customers may not realize are available.  We love the classic sets just as much as the new ones!


Our first FFF spotlight set is Light of the World:Lighthouseimage-525x499 


Can you guess who made this beauty of a card?  The one and only ODBD owner, Kelley Holland!  Yes, she is a talented stamper, too!  Her passion for stamping and her desire to spread the word of God has evolved into Our Daily Bread designs - a company devoted to His word.

This fabulous blue window card was made by the equally fabulous Amy Sheffer!  The card's construction and understated elegance made the scripture the main focal point and we just loved it!  But then again, there isn't a card from Amy that we don't love!

This gorgeous card is by the ever-talented Dina Kowal (who also lends a hand in designing a few ODBD stamps).  Just look at how she made the water and clouds...breathtaking!  Did you notice the gem at the top that was used as the light?

Look what Angie Zublionis created!  She stamped the lighthouse on vellum with brown ink and it worked perfectly with the sea shells!!  Although we love seeing cards, it is always a wonderful thing to see projects like this!

We hope you've enjoyed a little trip down Memory Lane with this set.  It will make a wonderful addition to your stamp collection if you don't already have it.

WOW! I own this set and have used it lots of times, and as I am partial to lighthouses, enjoy my "playing" every time. These samples posted have given me new ideas for layouts to try.
Thanks for the flashback. I look forward to more.....

Those are all lovely cards. Thanks for the flashback Lorelie! We often forget about our old favorites when we get new one.

All of the cards and the jar with the shells inside are all beautuiful. That set is still on my list of stamps to buy. I am very partial to lighthouses. Thank you for reminding me that I need to buy it.

Awesome, Lore! I've been thinking about that lately...the new releases are so awesome and we spend so much energy promoting them that we don't get time to go back and remind everyone how awesome all the other older sets still are. Love this, and you chose a great variety of cards to showcase the set. Cool cool!
