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)

Prim Blessings

Welcome to Day 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Feature Blog Hops for the month of August!  If you love adorable primitive images, you will enjoy today's hop.  This versatile set by Diane Zechman is full of prim possibilities!
Today's feature is:
  • Stamp set 7 includes images and 5 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The large sunflower image measures approximately 2 1/4" 
  • Designed by Diane Zechman
  • Stamp set is priced at $15

Here is my sample using Prim Blessings:
Creative Nugget:  The large and small sunflowers were masked and stamped along the bottom edge of a Vintage Cream panel. Some fussy cutting was done along the bottom and the panel attached to a piece of Bo Bunny DP from the Apple Cider Collection.  The sunflowers were colored with Copic Markes and a second large sunflower was colored, cut out, and popped up for dimension.  The Helen Keller sentiment was added to the top of the panel along with two little fishtail banners and pearls.  This was attached to a Dark Chocolate matt and mounted on a Vintage Cream card base to finish the card.  Nothing like a field of sunflowers to brighten someone's day!
