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)

Magic of Christmas

Welcome to day 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Feature Blog hops for the month of September!  The stamp set being featured today is sweet and full of whimsy!
Today's feature is:
  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 4 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 3"
  • The tree image measures approximately 2" x 2 1/4
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set - $9


Here is my sample made with Magic of Christmas:

Creative Nugget: Basic Grey patterned papers were sponged with Aged Mahogany Distress ink, stitched to Pool Party card stock, and mounted to a Solar Crest card base.  The sentiment was stamped in Bravo Burgundy ink on a Bookmarks & More Die which was trimmed to fit the top of the card. A Doily Border Die was cut from DP and attached to the card.  The tree image was stamped in VersaMark ink and white embossed.  The image was cut with a Rectangle Nestie and Pine Needles Distress ink was sponged over the tree image while still in the die.  This panel was stitched to Riding Hood Red card stock and a few gems added for a bit of bling.  A seam binding bow was added to finish the card.

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

Oh, you combined some lovely dp's once again, and your sponging sets off the tree beautifully - nice, deep colour! I wanted to emboss it in white too, but my embossing pad was going dry and my powder went all yellow - time for new stuff!
