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)

Season of Wonder

Hello friends!  This past weekend I had the pleasure of teaching a class and working the "Make and Take" table for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival in York, PA.  People were in awe of the beautiful card created by Korin Sutherland that we did for the "Make and Take."  Korin's card can be found HERE on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog.  When I saw that the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday was to use denim in some way…including using the color of denim…I immediately thought of Korin's card.  The card I have to share today is a CASE of her card.  I changed the stamp sets and used the design from Wednesday's Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers to modify my card.

Creative Nugget:  Light of Christmas was lightly stamped on the background with Tumbled Glass Distress ink, and the tree from the Christmas Silhouettes stamp set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  Modeling paste snow was added to this panel but was mostly covered by the top two layers.  The moon and snowdrifts on the backgrounds were masked and a combination of Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, and Seedless Preserves distress inks were sponged on the night sky and the drifts.  The tree was again stamped on both layers, while the houses from the Happy Home stamp set and a sentiment from Christmas Innies were stamped on the smaller panel.  (It was quite by accident that the tree image lined up on the two panels…love when things like that happen!)  The deer was stamped, cut with the matching Christmas Silhouettes Die, and popped onto the top of the card.  A white Sharpie paint pen and Wink of Stella were used to add shimmer and accents to the card.  Thanks for the inspiration, Korin, as I really like how this card turned out...

…and I hope you like it, too!
Enjoy your day and be blessed by the wonder and beauty that surrounds you.
