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)

Birds of a Feather

Good morning stamping friends!  How did you like the July release by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps?   If you haven't had a chance to see the new stamp sets yet, head on over to the store and take a look.  You will not be disappointed!  You can count on seeing many samples using these sets in the upcoming weeks right here on my Sweet Stop blog post.  In fact,  I've used one of the new sets for my Sweet Stop sample today.  I enjoyed working with SSS167 this week and I know you will, too!  Lets get started!

Getting Sentimental Challenge: Timeless Tuesday #177

Creative Nugget:  The sentiment is from the new "Words of Jesus" clear stamp set.  The scripture verse was stamped on a circle nestie and mounted on True Black. The patterned paper panels are from the Country Garden Collection by Bo Bunny and each was also mounted on True Black.  The panels were stitched to a Pure Luxury card front.  The Bird Builder punch by SU! was used as an accent, keeping the sentiment the main focus of the card.  Baker's Twine and pearls finish the card.   Nice 'n Easy!

The focus of the Christmas version is another one of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' birds...this one is the Cardinal Digi!

I hope I've inspired you to play along at The Sweet Stop!  Here's SSS167 and the links to the other Sugar Babies' Blogs.  Check out their fabulous samples for more inspiration!
