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)

Colorful Cocoa


Hello sweet friends…Welcome to Day 4 and the last of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps December Feature Blog Hops! Everyone's favorite mouse, Cocoa, is back making a colorful splash at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

Today's feature is:
  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 5 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 4"
  • The paint can image measures approximately 2.5" x 2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $11

Here is my sample for Colorful Cocoa:
Creative Nugget:  Three colorful panels were stitched to True Black card stock and mounted on a Solar Crest card base. Brushstrokes of color from the Grunge Elements stamp set were made with a rainbow of distress inks for the panel on the left. Scraps of DP were used for the other two panels.  It's difficult to see, but the Typewriter Text Background was stamped on the right panel.  Cocoa was colored with Copic Markers and cut with a Spellbinders Rectangle Nestie.  A couple of banners, a button, and pearls finish the card.  The design of the card is from this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

How fun!!! Love all the bright colors. Such an adorable image and I really like the "brush strokes". And the black accents really make it all pop.
