Plus Is Positive and Negative Is Negative!

Can you name that Pixar movie?

Today's cards show the difference between positive and negative.


The positive card was made by stamping the background stamp twice on scrap paper, once in Soft Lilac Hero Arts ink and once in Grape Jelly Memento ink. I cut the cross out of the Grape Jelly scrap and layered it on top of the Soft Lilac scrap. That way, all the words are there, if dimensionally offset.

I actually prefer the negative version, however, which was entirely an accident. I envisioned the first card quite clearly in my head, and then made it. Then, I saw the scraps of the Grape Jelly layer lying on my desk and thought, "Why not?"

And so it happened.

I love how you can still read the words and know what they are, even with the missing cross. His body isn't with us, but He sure is.

Can I get an Amen?!?

  1. Love these....actually, I love the negative one the best too!

  2. You certainly can, Susan - AMEN! These are so clever and artfully designed. Love this stamp and the ways in which you used it.

  3. the creative process and our subconscious works in such mysterious ways..........absolutely love "His body isn't with us, but He sure is" ......AMEN!!

  4. Amen Susan. I love that so many of us crafting buddies and bloggy pals have an active faith too. Fabulous cards by the way, even without the wonderful words, I like the idea of making a large background stamp the focus of the card.

  5. Amen! Love both cards, and girl, you are SO clever!

  6. yes, amen! love the negative one

  7. Amen! I like the negative one better too!

  8. Amen! I like them both! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us!

  9. I'm not generally a fan of things that are negative, but die cuts are the exception to the rule. I love negative die cuts!!!

  10. Amen! Both positive and negative are wonderful! Nice work!!
