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)

A CASE of Easter Blessings

Hello again, friends!  This is my second post of the day, so if you are looking for The Sweet Stop Sketch, please scroll down to the next post!  

Welcome to our first Mini Blog Hop for the new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February Release!  Today we are featuring the gorgeous new set, Easter Blessings!


This lovely set will help you create gorgeous Easter cards and projects.  The image is wonderful for coloring and for making monochromatic cards.
  • Set includes 1 image and 5 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 4"
  • Illustrated by Korin Sutherland
  • Set is priced at $11

Here is a sample made with this set.  My card is a CASE of a card made by Janette Olen and was submitted for the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers last Sunday.  Hope you like it!



Creative NuggetThe cross image was colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Lattice Rectangle die, and sponged with Broken China Distress Ink while still in the die.  Some panels of My Mind's Eye DP were added as well as some embossing, some stitching, rhinestones, and a bow.  I couldn't decide where to add the sentiment, so I'll be choosing one of the five sentiments included with this set to put on the inside.  


Check out more fabulous samples made by the talented SNSS Design Team in the thumbnails below!
