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)

Seasons Change

Hello, dear friends!  It's been very hot and humid here, so staying inside where it's air conditioned and stamping is a great way to pass the time!  The cooler temperatures of fall are on the way.  I think that Autumn may just be my favorite season…but, don't hold me to that come spring!

Creative Nugget:  My fall card was created with new stamps and dies by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Seasons Change image was colored with Copic Markers and the papers from the Blooming Garden Paper Collection were cut with the Flourished Star Pattern Die and Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The new Wheelbarrow Die was used to perfectly cut the image and the Grass Hill Die was used to ground the wheelbarrow.  Mixed Media paper was used to make a small panel for the embossed sentiment.  A Tombow marker was scribbled onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water, and smooshed onto the card several times, drying between layers to build up the color.  The Honeycomb Mini stamp was colored with a darker Tombow marker, dabbed with a baby wipe to remove some of the ink, spritzed with water, and stamped onto the panel…almost a perfect match!  The panel was then cut with a Pierced Square Die.  A little stitching, twine, and a few enamel dots were added to finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Splitcoaststampers - WT600
Crafty Girls Creations - Challenge 25
A Gem of a Challenge #177 - Ribbon, Lace, or Twine

Thanks so much for stopping by…have a blessed day!
