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)

Sweet Kiwi

Smile friends!  It's Sunday, the beginning of a new week, AND Day 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps new release features!
Today's feature is:
Sweet Kiwi


This cutie-patootie koala is sure to make anyone smile. Create adorable summer picnic invitations or just brighten someone's day with a sweet summer greeting!
  • Stamp set includes 1 image and 9 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 4"
  • The koala image measures approximately 2 3/8" x 2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $11


This adorable image is perfect for a shaped card!


Creative Nugget:  The base of the card was made with Solar Crest card stock cut into a half circle on the fold with my Creative Memories cutting system.  Concentric circles were cut out of Garden Green, Green Galore, and lilybeedesign DP and cut in half to match the base.  These layers were then stitched together. Kiwi was stamped on Solar Crest, colored with Copic Markers, and cut with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die.  After applying the bow and sentiment the card was off balance and tilted to the right, so the Fence and Grass Die Set was used to balance the card.  A few punched flowers, pearls, and seeds cut with the Clouds and Raindrops Dies to finish the card.  Doesn't this card just make you want to SMILE! :)
