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)

Born This Day

Hello friends!  Welcome to Day 4 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Feature Blog Hops for the month of September!  I hope you've enjoyed the hops thus far.  Today we have a precious Christmas stamp set celebrating the birth of Jesus. The thirteen sentiments and scripture verses included in this set convey the real reason for the season.  Creating with this set is made even better with the coordinating die set!
Today's feature is:

  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 13 sentiments and scripture verses
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The manger image measures approximately 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set - $15
  • Die set - $8.25
  • Bundle ($23.25 value) - $21

Here is my sample using Born This Day:
Creative Nugget:  Vintage Cream card stock was used for all the layers on the card front.  Each layer was outlined with a gold 
Uni-ball pen...wouldn't you know, my gold leaf pen had dried out. The Canvas Impression Plate gave texture to the first layer.  A scalloped border, some gold pearls, and stitching was added to the vertical panel.  The frame was cut with SB Classic Square and A2 Matting Basics B dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and the adorable manger scene was colored with Copic Markers.  The gold pen was used to color in the star, and white fun flock gives the little lamb some wooly texture.

Check out some fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along your journey because we're giving away (6) $15 store credits (1 winner will be chosen from each of the 6 blog hops).  The deadline to comment for a chance to win is Friday, September 13th at midnight EST.  The list of winners will be announced on our website homepage by Monday, September 16th.

Thanks so much for joining us!  Enjoy the hop!

Hugs,
Cathymac
