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)

Majestic Monarchs

Welcome back to Day 4 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July Release Features.  If you like butterflies, you'll find yourself reaching for this beautiful set time and time again!
Today's feature is:
Majestic Monarchs
  • Stamp set includes 6 images and 3 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The largest butterfly image measures approximately 2 1/2 " x 1 3/4"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $15
Here are several cards made with THIS beautiful set:

Creative Nugget:  These are not my typical colors and were inspired by the Color Challenge today on Splitcoaststampers.  I wasn't sure I was going to like them, but I was pleasantly surprised!  The flight of butterflies were stamped on Vintage Cream and colored with Copic Markers.  The large butterfly was stamped again on vellum, embossed, colored on the back, cut out, and popped onto the panel.  Two hand cut fishtail banners, one in Winter Wisteria, and the other in Basic Grey DP were stitched to the same panel.  The Hawthorne quote was stamped on a Decorative Plaque Die and a Decorative Frame Topper was added to the top and bottom with Winter Wisteria ink.  The plaque was popped on the card and the left end trimmed even with the panel. All panels were sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base which was also sponged. A few pearls were added to finish the card.

These cards were in a previous post, but you might have missed them and I thought you would enjoy seeing them again.

and
Love these butterflies with the doilies!
