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)

Featuring Bloom & Grow

Hello friends!  Today Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is featuring the stamp set Bloom & Grow.  Here is a card sample made with this lovely set:

Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made by laying down Evergreen Bough, Shaded Lilac, and Dusty Concord distress inks on a craft mat then spritzing the inks with a generous amount of water.  A piece of Mixed Media paper was smooshed onto the inks and dried with a heat tool.  This panel was then embossed with a honeycomb pattern, split and popped onto the card base.  One of the sentiments from the Bloom & Grow stamp set was stamped between the diagonal split.  The flowers were also stamped using the same distress inks.  Each flower was fussy cut, sculpted using a stylus, and layered onto the top panel.  A second sentiment from the set was stamped between the flowers.  Gem stones were used in the middle of each flower and Baker's Twine was added to finish the card.

Be sure to check out the details on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and see more beautiful samples made with this pretty floral stamp set.  The border on the sample above was made with one of the Bookmarks & More Dies.


This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday #187 - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiment Challenge #133 - BINGO plus a Sentiment: Flowers, Stamp, Embossing
Top Tip Tuesday - Cut It Out

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Take time to stop and smell the flowers!

Hugs,
