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)

SNSS Celebrates Christmas in July!

Hello friends, and welcome to 
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas in July Blog Hop & Sale   

It's time for me to seriously begin working on my Christmas cards for this year…how about you?  The Creative Design Team at SNSS has just the inspiration you need to put you in the Christmas spirit, so grab your favorite beverage and hop along with us.  Just click on the team thumbnails at the end of this post and you will be taken to each of the designers' blogs to see the details for each amazing creation…the links will be at the end of each blog so you will not get lost along the way.  While you are at each blog, leave some love behind because one lucky person will be randomly chosen from all the comments to win a FREE (in stock) Christmas stamp set of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!


For my sample, I chose to use the darling Season's Greetings stamp set!
Creative Nugget:  The Tree Background was stamped in brown ink on a Neenah Solar White panel then shifted slightly, stamped again with VersaMark ink and white embossed to look like snow. Distress inks were sponged around the edges and again across the bottom to create a few snow drifts.  A Darice embossing folder was used to create some snowy texture on the panel and white acrylic paint splatters added.  One of the Hillside Edges Dies were used to cut a hillside out of vellum on which the sentiment was embossed.  This was mounted to the bottom of the card and a Fence die cut added.  The images from the Season's Greetings stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, cut with the matching Season's Greeting Die Set, and popped onto the card. The two smaller birdhouses were tied to the tree branch with metallic thread. 


Here are the SNSS products used to make this card:
