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)

Inspirational Word Art 2

Hello friends…happy Friday!  Today Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is featuring a brand new stamp set just added to the store…Inspirational Word Art 2.  If you liked Inspirational Word Art 1 you will love this set as well.   I have two very different cards to share that were made with this new set.

Creative Nugget:  The background was created by sponging VersaMark ink through a star stencil and embossing the stars with white embossing powder.   Color Burst pigment powders were sprinkled on and spritzed with water to create a night sky.  The left over Color Burst left on my craft mat was spritzed again and mopped up with more pieces of mixed media paper so none of the pigments went to waste.  One of these pieces was used for the sentiment panel.  The Stars Dies were used to cut a few extra stars and silk ribbon was added to finish the card.

My next card uses a different sentiment from the Inspirational Word Art 2 stamp set.
Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made after watching the Carved Wood Tutorial on Stamp TV.  Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, and Craft White inks and a KaiserCraft embossing folder were used.  The sentiment was embossed and cut with a pierced circle die.  A few Leaf Silhouettes were stamped, cut with the matching Leaf Silhouettes Dies, and added to the card along with some jute twine.  This card could be used for many different occasions, but I'm planning on using it for a good friend's birthday.

These products from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store were used:

These card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Praying for those in Florida and along the East Coast…stay safe!

Two lovely cards, quite different in appearance but I think the second is my favourite, with it's rich ornate colours, it is quite stunning. Thank you for playing along with the Crafty Boots Autumn Challenge.
