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)

Pick Me Up

Welcome back to DAY 4 and the last day of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Release Blog Hops.  Today's hop is dedicated to all of you coffee drinkers out there, but even if you are like me, and not a coffee drinker, you will love this adorable set with matching dies and the samples we have made for you to enjoy!
Today's features are:
  • Stamp set measures 4"x4"
  • Coffee mug image measures approximately 1.5" x 1.5"
  • Illustrated by Korin Sutherland
  • Coordinates with Pick Me Up Dies
  • Stamp set price is $11
  • Die set price is $7.50  (Bundle is $16)

Here is my card for Pick Me Up:

Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made with several of the splatters from the Grunge Elements stamp set in Angel Pink, New Sprout, and Versafine Onyx Black ink.  A Tim Holtz Faded Dot stencil was used to apply the Texture Paste over the splatters.  A piece of KaiserCraft designer paper and a Borders and Background Die were also added to the True Black card base. Several of the images from the new Pick Me Up set were stamped, die cut, and added to a Classic Circle Nestie that was sponged with Angel Pink ink.  A button was attached to one of the Heart Dies and added along with some rhinestone stickers and a sentiment banner.  A Wink of Stella markers was used to add some shimmer to finish the card.

This card will also be entered into the Seize the Sketch #15 Challenge

Very pretty! Love the grungy feel to it. I tried to get the grunge set, but it was out of stock. It will definitely stay near the top of my "list". Love how you used it.

Love your card! The textures are really impressive. I have that same TH stencil, but have only used it once (and I don't think very successfully), not really knowing what all to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!
