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)

The Future

Hello again, sweet friends!  Didn't you just love the samples on yesterday's Blog Hop!  Get ready for more of the same today!


Welcome to Day 2 
of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps January Feature Blog Hops!


Today's feature is:
•Clear stamp set includes 10 sentiments
•Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
•Largest sentiment measures approximately 2" x 2"
•Designed by Korin Sutherland
•Stamp set - $15



Here is my sample using The Future AND 


Creative Nugget:  All of the panels on this card were made by coloring different colors of Gelatos right on the Leafy Flourish Background stamp.  Then the stamp was lightly spritzed with water and stamped onto Mixed Media paper.  Each panel was cut so that the design of the stamp would match up on each layer.  Each layer was then stitched to True Black card stock.  The sentiment from The Future was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink and cut with one of the Bookmarks & More Dies.  The little scalloped border is also from the same set of dies. Pearls were colored with Copics to match and scattered on the card.  A gingham bow finished off the card.

I love how the layer stamping is lined up with the background. The black card stock backing looks terrific. The bow, pearls and black edging make it extra special. Well done.
