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)

Get Well Chickie

Hello friends!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  Anyone feeling under the weather?  This card is for you!

Creative Nugget:  Almost all of the sentiments from the Get Well Critters stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps were arranged on my Misti Tool and white embossed on a panel of mixed media paper.  Distress inks were applied to a craft mat, spritzed with water and the panel of paper was dabbed onto the colors.  A little more sponging and some more spritzing were used to finish the background.  The panel was cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die and a turquoise border added.  The sentiment panel was adhered to Neenah card stock on which the band-aids had been randomly stamped in different colors.  The little hearts were watercolored and painted with Wink of Stella..  The chick was colored with Copics, cut with a Circle Die and mounted to a Pierced Circle. One of the sentiments from the background was white embossed on a turquoise banner and a heated bow added to finish the card.

My second card used the Mojo Sketch for this week and the Good News stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  The stamp set released this month was perfect for getting an Easter card finished.

Creative Nugget:  Distress Oxide inks were smeared on the back of a sunburst stencil, spritzed with water and pressed onto pieces of mixed media paper.  One piece was then embossed with a sunburst embossing folder and used for the background.  Sponging was added around the border of a Neenah card stock panel and was stitched to the background.  The second Oxide ink panel was cut down for the top panel.  The cross and crown from the Good News set were stamped, fussy cut and popped onto the panel between the stamped sentiment.  An Easter greeting from the He Lives stamp set was stamped on a die cut banner.  The big seam binding bow ties everything together.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a feel good day!

What an absolutely charming pair of cards! Each one is totally unique and original. I love how the first card is a Get Well theme. I don't feel like I ever have enough cute Get Well cards, and this one really takes the cake! And on the second card, I really like the color blending and layering that you did. Both of these are lovely cards and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
