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)

Hello friends!  It's my turn to share on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and thought I'd share here as well.  First is a little "Hello" made with the Keep in Touch stamp set for the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday as well as the Mojo Monday Sketch.

Creative Nugget:  White, black, and pink sponging, stamping, and card stock were used with the Keep in Touch stamp set to create this card.  Typewriter Text was used on the background and the Classy Script Alpha was used to stamp "hello."  Alphabet sets are ideal for creating the perfect sentiment for your card and SNSS has so many fabulous alphabet sets from which to choose!  There's just a little bit of the Flower Pattern Background at the bottom of the narrow vertical panel.   A few gems were colored with Copic Markers and added to the card.

Can you believe that it's time to earnestly begin working on Christmas cards?  My second card uses one of Krita Hamrick's new stamp sets, Receive the Savior.

Creative Nugget:  A Brown Tombow Marker was used to color the outline image from the Receive the Savior stamp set which was stamped on a piece of Mixed Media paper.  A water color brush was used to pull the brown ink into the image.  Other Tombow colors were scribbled onto an acrylic block, picked up with the brush, and painted onto the image as well.  The background panel was created with the same Tombow markers applied to an acrylic block, spritzed with water, and smeared onto another piece of mixed media paper.  I even found some non-traditional Christmas papers in my stash that were a perfect match for a few of the layers!

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

My thoughts and prayers are for the people along the coast, especially in Florida.
Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
