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)

Sweet Feet

Hello, dear friends...Hope you are having a wonderful week! I have a few Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps projects to share with you today beginning with some sweet feet.

Creative Nugget:  Since today is Hobbit Day, Toni challenged us to use feet or toes on a card for the Ways To Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  The little feet from the Little One stamp set came to mind.  The thing that makes these feet so sweet is the little bit of baby powder mixed in with the white embossing powder.  Tombow Markers were scribbled on an acrylic block, spritzed with water, and smeared and splattered onto the card over the embossing, around the edges of each frame, and on the ribbon.  The split sentiment was done by coloring the different parts of the stamp with a black Tombow Marker.  The design for this card is from last week's CAS(E) this Sketch.

Next up is a Christmas card made using a new stamp set designed by Diane Zechman, Poinsettias & Candles.  

Creative Nugget:  The design for this card came from this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  All images were colored with Copic Markers.  The poinsettias were fussy cut and the small was one popped onto the larger one for added dimension. Stitching and twine add a finishing touch to the card.

Finally, it was my turn to post on the Creative Worship Blog today, so I thought I would share my Bible Journaling page here as well.  My Creator, designed by Krista Hamerick, was used to create this page and is now back in stock at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store

Creative Nugget:  After downloading a clip art globe and printing it out, I scribbled pencil on the back of the paper, placed the paper pencil side down on my Bible page, and traced the globe.  This left enough of an outline that I could see to trace.  The rest of the page was stamped using My Creator and Outline Alpha.  Because I wanted Jesus to face the opposite direction, I stamped Him on a piece of acetate, turned the acetate ink side down, and pressed the image onto the page.  I was then able to trace Him as well. The page was then water colored with Peerless water colors and a few sequins added.  How awesome that the creator of the universe knows and cares for us!

"O Lord, you have searched me and known me
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it."
(Psalm 139:1-3; 6)
That's all for today!
These projects will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you were inspired!
