and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

My first sample was made with the new Winter Chickadee stamp set.


Creative Nugget: A sentiment from the Winter Chickadee set was white embossed on a piece of Kraft card stock cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die.  This panel was splattered with white acrylic paint.  Two panels of paper from the Christmas 2017 Collection were also cut with the Pierced Rectangle Dies and mounted to the Kraft layer.  The Winter Chickadee was colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Pierced Circle Die, and matted with paper cut with a Circle Die. The Pinecones Dies and Pine Branches Dies were used to cut a pine spray which was tied to the card with jute twine.  Frosting Powder was added to give a little sparkle to the snow on the branch.

My second sample uses the Snowman Family stamp set and the Snow Globe Die.

Creative Nugget:  Paper from the Christmas 2017 Collection was cut with a  Pierced Rectangle Die and a Pierced Circle Die.  The Snow Globe was also cut from paper from the Christmas 2017 Collection.  Two snow drifts were cut with the Curvy Slopes Dies. One drift was adhered to the front of the card.  The Snow Globe was added next, and finally the second drift was added.  A piece of acetate was glued to the back of the front panel.  The Snowman Family was stamped to another piece of card stock and colored with Copic Markers.  A double layer of foam tape holds the two layers together with sequins and seed beads sandwiched between.  The Trees and Deer Dies were used to cut two pine trees which were sponged and covered with Frosting Powder before adding them to the front of the card.  The sentiment from the Snowman Family stamp set was stamped on an oval cut with a Pierced Oval Die and mounted to an Oval die cut. to finish the card.
