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)

Scrap Box Creations

Hello friends!  I have several cards to share with you that I am posting on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog today.  If you are like me, you probably have a scrap box full of designer paper scraps…why is it so hard to throw those little scraps away?  My scrap box is overflowing, so I decided to dig in and use up some of those scraps for my cards.

Creative Nugget:  Paper scraps were stitched together to make the sun rays behind the farm scene.  Two of the images from Landscape Silhouettes were merged to make the scene.  Some Color Burst powders were used to make the sunny colors behind the scene.  The sentiment from the For My Father stamp set was cut with one of the Decorative Plaques Dies.

Creative Nugget:  For my second card, 3/4" strips were cut from DP scraps to make the herringbone pattern on the background. The panel was then embossed to give it a quilted look.  Sew Happy Cocoa is back in stock at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Store and I couldn't resist using him for my Sew Thoughtful card.  The sentiment was stamped and cut with one of the Mini Tag Dies.

All of the stamp sets and dies used on these creations are currently available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store and ready for shipment.

Take some time to check them out along with all of the other favorites that are now back in stock.
Today is the last day to receive a free gift with your $25 purchase before shipping and discounts!

Inspirational Nugget:  These cards serve as a reminder that God can take all of the pieces of our lives…put them together in just right way and make something beautiful!  Nothing is wasted!

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."
Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
