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)

SNSS Celebrates Christmas in July

Hello friends...just a short post for you today as I'm away for the day.  I wanted to let you know about two new Christmas die sets being released today at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...just in time to get a jump start on making those Christmas cards!  Both of them have coordinating stamp sets to make your Christmas card stamping a snap!


Here are two samples I made using these sets and the matching dies:

Creative Nugget: This card was made with the Poinsettia clear stamp set and the Poinsettia die.  Several poinsettias were cut with the die, colored with Copic Markers, and some were cut apart to layer for texture.

Creative Nugget:  The Vintage Ornament was stamped hanging from the berry branch from the God's Purpose stamp set.  Four ornaments were cut with the matching die and everything was colored with Copic Markers.  The die cut ornaments were scored and folded in half and the halves attached to form a 3-D ornament. Wouldn't these 3-D ornaments look lovely attached to a Christmas tree with some pretty ribbon?  The newly released Doily Border Die was used to separate the panels of card stock and DP.  The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.

I hope you've enjoyed my samples!  For more fabulous Christmas inspiration using the new dies, visit the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog.  There you will find information about the hop, the PRIZES, and the linky list to continue the hop!

Thanks so much for stopping by...Enjoy the hop!

Hugs,
Cathymac
