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)

Red and White for Christmas

Hello friends!  With all the record snowfalls parts of our country are being blanketed with, I decided to whip up a few more Christmas cards using mostly white with a few red accents.   I've been very content be confined to my warm, cozy home during this blast of freezing weather while the car is in for repairs!  LOL!

Creative Nugget:  After using the new Bare Tree Die just released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to cut several trees, the trunks were woven through the branches to form the wreath for this Christmas card.  The chickadee image from the God's Purpose stamp set was colored with Copic Markers, cut with the God's Purpose Chickadee Die, and mounted over the opening in the wreath.  A bright red bow and a few sequins finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  This scene was made using the sketch from this week on Splitcoaststampers and the new Hillside Edges Dies by SNSS.  The sky was sponged and splattered with acrylic paint. The scene was framed in red and the Christmas sentiment was embossed in red on another one of the Hillside Edges.  The tree from the Forest Silhouettes Dies was added along with a little bird die cut from Real Red card stock.  A big red bow made from seam binding was added to finish the card.

Here are the supplies from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store used to create these wintery Christmas cards:

Thanks so much for stopping by…stay warm!
