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)

Long Stem Silhouettes

Hello friends...happy Sunday!  Welcome to day two of 
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps January Release Features!  If you love silhouette stamps, you will love today's feature stamp set.


Introducing...Long Stem Silhouettes 


This lovely stamp set is perfect for creating beautiful and classy cards with ease as you will see as you make your way through the participating blogs in today's mini hop.  The sentiments included in the set make it very versatile.  I've already found myself reaching for it over and over again!
  • Set includes 3 images and 6 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 4"
  • Images measure approximately 3.75" high x less than 1.5" wide
  • Illustrated by Korin Sutherland
Here's my sample using Long Stem Silhouettes


Creative Nugget:  One of the quick and easy ways to use silhouette stamps is to stamp directly on designer paper. When you start with gorgeous papers like these from the Ladies' Diary Collection by Graphics 45, you're bound to end up with a beautiful card.  A few layers, a pearl pen, some stitching and lace, a little twine and a button are all you need to create a card with a vintage feel.  The design for this card came from this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

Check out some more fabulous samples made by other members of the talented SNSS Design Team.  See the linky tool below!

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

The deadline to comment for a chance to win is midnight, Wednesday, January 9th.  The list of winners will be announced on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog on Thursday, January 10th.

Join me again tomorrow for another featured stamp set and mini blog hop.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Cathymac

This card is gorgeous! If I had this set, that is exactly what I would do first, stamp on patterned paper.

Your flowers are so pretty with the pearl accents. I never think to stamp anything more than a sentiment on designer paper (unless I'm planning to paper piece), so thank you for the inspiration.
