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)

Vintage Seed Packet

Happy Sunday to you all and welcome to Day 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Release Features!  I hope you've been enjoying the March Release festivities thus far.  You are in for a real treat because today's hop is full of amazing eye candy!

Today's featured set is:
This lovely set is full of fabulous elements which will create some gorgeous cards and more!
  • Set includes 3 images and 7 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • Circle frame image measures approximately 3" x 3 1/4"
  • Designed by Dina Kowal
  • Set is priced at $15


Here is my sample using this gorgeous stamp set: 


Creative Nugget: The background was made by randomly stamping several of the images and sentiments in different colors. A scalloped border and some lace was attached to the background which was stitched to True Black card stock, attached to a Vintage Cream panel, and mounted on a Kraft card base.  The flower image was stamped on a Crocheted Circle die in Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  A second flower was colored and some of the petals cut out and popped on the first flower for dimension.  This was mounted on a Cameo Coral Tag Die, and then onto a Lacy Circle Nestie and popped onto the card.  A seam binding bow was tied onto the flower tag to finish the card.

Check out more fabulous samples made by our talented Design Team in the thumbnails below.
