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)

Christmas with Winter Birds

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing two cards on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog using the wonderful new Winter Birds stamp set designed by Krista Hamrick!

Creative Nugget:  The cardinal and the chickadee from the Winter Birds stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, cut out, and placed on the hanging ornaments which were made with an old retired ornaments die.  The ornaments were layered onto a textured background with some holly leaves in the corner.  The sentiment was white embossed on a black banner.  Some Glossy Accents on the berries and metallic thread bows finish off the card.

Creative Nugget:  The black color block frame was cut with a Tailored Expressions die and each section of the frame was filled with elements from the Winter Birds stamp set.  Black Nuvo drops were added for some extra texture.

These Christmas cards will be perfect for some of the "boys" in my family this Christmas!

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

My thoughts and prayers are for all those impacted by Hurricane Florence...stay safe!

Beautiful cards Cathy. Fantastic coloring! I used your bird as the reference when I colored my bird. :) Those ornaments look amazing with the sweet birds. Nice textured background! I also love the color block frame. Great way of showcasing the different images.

Love the color choices on the first card. The embossing adds a great touch of texture. The layout of the second really allows for some great design elements. Love the paper choices and the birds really pop.
