Welcoming Esther/Farmhouse Faith – by Esther Asbury

Good Tuesday morning to all!

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Hebrews 11:1

I love this verse, for without faith, what do we have?


As most of you reading this know, Esther has been guest designing with us for the last several months and we have been enamored with her work. She loves to use a lot of pattern and color and her work is full of life with a vintage flair that is so appealing. (Today’s card above is a perfect example!)

Esther has been inspiring crafters online for 10 years plus being involved with a number of design teams and blog challenges and we are beyond happy to announce that she is now one of our permanent design team members here at Stamp Simply! YAY!!!  We are all super excited!!!

Welcome Esther Asbury!

Esther’s work can be found at her blog - Shoregirl’s Creations.

Thank you for joining our team, Esther! We all look forward to your continued work.


Getting back to Esther’s card for today, she blew us away with this one!

There’s a lot going on here, yet the color scheme of kraft, golden yellow and black lends a warm, mellow fall feel to this card.

Esther created the background by stamping the sunflower in versamark watermark ink on kraft card stock and then coloring with Prismacolor Pencils.

Another background with the leafy print was created for the focal image panel.

The stamped sentiment, die cut animals and die cut lace just POP in black!

A lovely card with a vintage, farmhouse flair sending a meaningful message from scripture.

It doesn’t get any better than this!

Thank you so much, Esther.
