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)

Delightful Doilies With a Spin

Hello friends and stampers!  I hope you've had a wonderful, COOL week!  It's been sweltering here, so not many walks were taken.  Kody will be ready for a good long run when the weather cools off a bit!  

Since it's the third Saturday of the month, there's a SPIN on the new sketch at The Sweet Stop!  Use DOILIES on your stamped creation for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store.  What a timely spin since
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps just released a new clear stamp set called Delightful Doilies and what a beautiful set it is, so that's what I used for this week's sample.

Creative Nugget:  This card was a mixed media experiment.  Three doilies were stamped in VersaMark ink and clear embossed on mixed media paper.  Water was sprayed on the panel before spraying on Dirty Martini, London Blue, and After Midnight Dylusions.  This was then wiped with a paper towel and heat dried. The other two doilies were white embossed on Blueberry Sky and Winter Wisteria card stocks.  The same Dylusions colors were sprayed on a craft mat and then spritzed with water.  The doilies were dabbed in the ink, fussy cut, and popped on the doily background.  This panel was matted in True Black and popped onto a Solar Crest card base after adding a lace border.  The Mini Tag Die was stamped with a sentiment from the Special Friends stamp set and tied onto the lace along with a seam binding bow.  A few pearls and a button tied with floss were added to finish the card.  I'm sure if I tried this again, the results would be quite different which is what makes mixed media so much fun!

Take a look at all the amazing samples made by the Sugar Babies this week.  Then take out your doilies and play along with SSS220 at The Sweet Stop for a chance to win the prize.
