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)

(Retail Value $28.00)

Two lucky winners who leave a comment on each blog on the hop, will be selected by random.  The deadline to hop and leave comments is 11:59 EST Saturday, October 22nd.  The winners will be announced on Sunday, October 23rd on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and The Twinery Blog. So grab a cuppa and relax as you hop through the fabulous list of bloggers to see projects that combine twine with Sweet 'n Sassy stamps!

If you've arrived here from the amazing Bridget Finlay...you're on the right track!  If not, you may want to head back to The Twinery Blog where the hop begins.



Creative Nugget:  My card sample features the most adorable turkey from the 
Sweet 'n Sassy clear stamp set, "Gobble, Gobble" and Caribbean, Lemondrop, Peapod, and Cappuccino twine from The Twinery.  After coloring the turkey with copic markers, twine was stitched to his tail feathers.  This was cut out with a label die from Papertrey Ink and sponged with Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, and Broken China Distress Inks.  Clouds were sponged on the background with Broken China.  The ground is a torn piece of DP from the Forever Fall Collection by Bo Bunny.  Faux stitching was added around the perimeter.  The fence was textured with a wood grain impression plate before being die cut with a fence die, both from Papertrey Ink.  The pennant was punched with a Stampin' Up! pennant punch, stitched together with twine, and stamped with several sentiments from the "Gobble, Gobble" stamp set.  This was all layered onto an Early Espresso panel and attached to a Vintage Cream card base.  A button and pearl accents finish the card.  I think you'll agree that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and The Twinery is a fabulous match!  

Thanks for stopping by today...enjoy the hop!  Don't forget to leave your comment before heading off to Katrina Hunt for another wonderful sample!

Hugs,
Cathymac
