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)

Welcome to the SNSS October Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps October 2015 Release and Blog Hop!  SNSS has added four new stamp sets and five new products from the October Sweet Perks Club to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store that are perfect for card making, Bible art journaling, and so much more.  Just wait until you see all the gorgeous projects prepared just for you by the talented Design Divas.

My first sample used the gorgeous new Winter Blessings stamp set.
Creative Nugget:  The large Background image was white embossed on a piece of mixed media paper before applying the distress inks using the wrinkle-free distress technique.  The same colors were used to create another piece without the embossing. The center of the embossed panel was cut out and the frame mounted to a piece of blue card stock.  The smaller snowflake images were stamped on the other panel without the embossing using the same colors of distress ink.  This panel was stitched inside the frame.  The sentiment strip was added along with some dyed seam binding.

This background is perfect for creating wintery scenes or just add a wintery blessing and send your card on its way.
My second sample is actually a Bible Journal Page.

Creative Nugget: The Bible page was prepped with two coats of clear gesso before watered down distress inks were dabbed onto the page with a piece of acetate.  Images and words from the new Name Above All Names and Message of Hope stamp sets were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  A wet paint brush was used to remove the distress inks from the everlasting cross and dove images so they could be colored.  Prismacolor Pencils were used to color the dove and the cross was watercolored with distress inks.  Wink of Stella and a white paint pen were used to add accents.

Not only is this darling stamp set perfect for Bible journaling, but think of the fabulous Christmas cards that can be made with the wonderful images!
The words in this versatile stamp set can be combined to create many different Bible verses that can be used in your Journaling Bibles.  Many of the Sweet 'n Sassy stamp sets you already have can be used to illustrate the verse.

Okay, now that you've seen some of the new products, click on the links below for the October 2015 Release Blog Hop so you can see the rest of the release and feast your eyes on what the talented team did with it!  Don't forget to leave a little love on each blog as you hop along.
