Hello, friends! Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps August 2015 Release Blog Hop!

My first sample uses the new Little One stamp set. This darling baby set is a much needed addition to the
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps line. The vintage looking silhouettes and beautiful sentiments in the set can be used to create sweet baby gifts and cards.
Creative Nugget: The Floral Pattern Background was white embossed on Neenah card stock and sponged with Distress Inks. This panel was cut diagonally and stitch to the embossed Dotted Swiss layer. The sweet footprints from the Little One stamp set were also white embossed and sponged with the same colors as above. The sentiment was white embossed on pink card stock and hand cut into a banner. A Scallop Border was embossed with Swiss Dots and attached to the banner. Dyed ribbon and some rhinestones were added to finish the card.
My next sample was made with Karla's new stamp set, Worship the Lord. Not only can this fabulous stamp set be used to create cards, but bookmarks and Bible Journal entries as well.
Creative Nugget: Every image in the Worship the Lord stamp set was used to create the Bible verse from Luke 4:8 in the margin of my Journaling Bible. StazOn Jet Black ink was used to stamp the images. This ink did not bleed through the page, although you can see a shadow of the images on the back of the page. The images were then colored with Prismacolor Pencils. A white Sharpie Paint Pen was used for the highlights. Please share your experiences with Bible Journaling in your comments. I look forward to learning what mediums work for you!
