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)

Fall into Christmas

Hello friends!   Now that fall is officially here, I plan to enjoy the crisp mornings and falling leaves even though we are already seeing signs of Christmas!  Today I am sharing several cards from the SNSS August and September 2018 releases on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog.  First...my fall card:

Creative Nugget:  This jolly scarecrow from the Happy Scarecrow stamp set just make me so...HAPPY!  All of the images were colored with Copic Markers and were mounted to a watercolored panel made with Distress Oxide Inks.  The brown horizontal panel was also made with DOX inks and the Texture Tiles 2 stamp set. The sentiment was cut with a stitched circle die and some jute twine was added to complete the card.

Now...on to Christmas!

Creative Nugget:  The holly leaves from the Winter Birds set was stamped around the outside border of a panel and colored with Copic Markers.  The center of this panel was cut with a stitched rectangle die.  The sentiment was stamped, a Texture Tiles 3 image was lightly stamped in blue ink and texture was added with an impression plate.  The panel was mounted to black card stock and popped back onto the border.  The dove was colored, cut out and mounted to the center with foam tape and sequins were added to finish the card.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...take time to enjoy fall!

Hugs,
Cathy
