And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Have a Beary Christmas

I want to thank all of you for joining us on the Fall Fun Blog Hop!  I had such a great time and am thrilled and honored to have acquired so many new friends!  Please be sure to scroll all the way down to the end of this post to see the winner of my Blog Candy!

I'm so glad you decided to stop by because it's time again for Sweet'n Sassy Stamps "Sweet Peeks," and as my title suggests, this release will put you in the Christmas spirit!  The nine new stamp sets being released on September 15th are just perfect for all your Christmas crafting!  A different set will be featured for the next eight days, so stop by the SNSS Blog to catch a glimpse of the goodies...all of the design divas have been busy creating fabulous samples to whet your appetite!  Today is Day 1 of the Sweet Peeks and I get to share this "Beary Christmas" set with you!


Isn't this polar bear the cutest thing!  This set includes one image and six sentiments for creating cards that are humorous and BEARY adorable.  The best thing about this set is that it is free with a $50 purchase of clear stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

Creative Nugget:  A white panel embossed with Swiss dots was attached to the black card base.  Cosmo Cricket DP was attached to another black panel and adhered to the Swiss dots layer.  The black nestie circle kind of reminds me of a cave.   A black gingham ribbon was then added.  Two torn layers were embossed with Swiss dots and covered with Dazzling Diamond Glitter.  The polar bear was so easy to color with copics since most of him stayed white.  The wreath on his "butt"  was stamped again and popped up for dimension.  A tag punch was used to create the sentiment.  What do you think?  Be sure to stop over at the SNSS Blog to see what the other talented ladies have done with this set.  Then join us on the 15th over at the SCS Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps forum for the release party!
