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)

Cocoa's Heart

Hello friends!  It's the beginning of a new week and time for the third mini hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps January Release. Today we are featuring everyone's favorite little mice, Cocoa and Cookie in a new clear stamp set called Cocoa's Heart.

This darling set can be used for Valentine's Day or any time you want to send a little love.

  • Set includes two images and four sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 4"
  • Images measure approximately 2" x 2.25" and 2" x 3"
  • Illustrated by Korin Sutherland

Here's my sample for Cocoa's Heart

Creative Nugget:  The Heart Scallop Border Die and the FabScraps DP were stitched to a Kraft card front embossed with a Sizzix heart folder. Cocoa was colored twice with Copic markers...then just the head was cut out and popped on top of the other stamped image for some dimension.  The whole heart was then cut out and popped onto the Asian Accent doily.  The sentiment banner was hand cut and attached to the card.  A twill bow, some button twine and a button finish the card.

This next card was already shared on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog, but hasn't been posted here yet, so I thought I would share it as well.  

Check out some more wonderful samples made by the other Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas.  See the link tool below!

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along the way because one lucky commenter will win this adorable stamp set!

Both are fabulous Cathy. Such sweet images, awesome coloring... the paper-pieced heart lock looks perfect. The stitching and distressing look great. The little heart charm is perfect!
