Over the years, I have picked up some beautiful old religious reliquaries. The details inside these special shrines are beautiful. Often times I wonder how they came to be and what was going through the minds of the artists of these relics.
When the new Four Portals stamps were released, I knew right away what I wanted to create. To somehow replicate the beauty of the miniature shrines and solder them into a small box that would fit into the stamped clay shrine. An old relic reinvented in a new way.
Using the Sacre Coeur art stamp as the centerpiece, the beauty started to evolve. With vintage papers as the background, some vintage glass glitter, some metal bullion and faceted beads, the reliquary started to take shape.
I love how we are able to create a very vintage looking piece from the vast assortment of Sandr Evertson's Art Stamps.

These beautiful and timeless frames accent any art stamping project seamlessly and are designed to intertwine with "MUSE" Art Stamps as well as the Relics & Artifacts® resin craft blanks.
Incredibly detailed and made of the finest red rubber on the market, "Four Portals" will add an infinite number of creative possibilities perfect for any style, motif, or skill level.
As a special gift and our way to say thank you, if you purchase all four of the "Four Portals" stamps, you will receive "Alma" as a free give. Please note that "Alma" is only available as a cling stamp.
Pictured above framed with "Ethereal", this stamp is accented with a thorn necklace and hummingbird pendant.
And please don't forget to grab your "Muse" Art Stamps. The beauty of these collections is how effortlessly they blend, meld, and mesh together to create one of a kind masterpieces for yourself or to gift to loved ones.

Experiments fascinate me. The thrill of going into uncharted territory and not knowing the outcome may frighten a lot of people but to me it's a "dive right in" kind of thing. One thing does take me out of my comfort zone and that little thing is called Patience.Read More
