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)

God's Will

Hello everyone and welcome to DAY 3 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Release Blog Hops!  I hope you've been enjoying all of the wonderful samples so far.  Today you will see God's word illustrated beautifully as you browse the Design Team Blogs.  
Today's feature is:
  • Includes 6 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6"x4"
  • Largest verse measures approximately 2" x 2.5"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set price is $15
Here is my sample for God's Will:
Creative Nugget:  A piece of My Mind's Eye designer paper was attached to a True Black card base to form the front of the card. The sun was masked on a piece of Mixed Media paper and distress reinkers were used to create a watercolor wash for the background.  A little bit of watered down acrylic paint was streaked across the front of this panel.  The Isaiah scripture was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink as well as images from the Landscape Silhouettes, Nature Silhouettes, and Serene Silhouettes stamp sets.  The Fence Die was cut from the same DP used for the card front and mounted to the card with foam tape. Pearls were added to finish the card.  The card was kept fairly simple so God's word could be the main focus.

And here's another one:
Creative Nugget:  The Leafy Flourish Background was white embossed on Vintage Cream card stock, then sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  The Friendship Script Background was over stamped using the same ink.  The verse from the God's Will stamp set was stamped in Potting Soil Archival ink on a Bookmarks & More Die.  Several Scallop Borders were cut from Kraft, Vintage Cream, and Vellum and layered across the top.  Stitching, mulberry roses, a button, and ribbon finish the card.

Love the beautiful background of the peaceful farmhouse scene. Great job. The second card is gorgeous. Love the flower clusters and soft color scheme of the card. The scallops look great and the stitching is wonderful.

Love that image for your first card, I think it is perfect to go with the verse. The second is just Beautiful, love the cream and such pretty flower arranging!

Your second card is soft elegance, and I love the stitching detail. But that first card really grabbed my attention, with the bright colors & bold imagery. Great job! Tfs!
