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)

Thrill of Hope

Hello friends!   Today I am sharing two cards for several challenges made with a new favorite stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...Thrill of Hope.

Creative Nugget:  Distress Oxide Inks were applied directly to a large acrylic block, spritzed with water and smeared onto a piece of mixed media paper to create the background for the trees. The same inks were used to sponge the sky and snow drifts on the card base.  The tree border from the Thrill of Hope stamp set was stamped in purple along the bottom of the card and the deer, cut with a Scan 'N Cut, was popped onto the card.  The sentiment was white embossed to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  The Buffalo plaid from the Texture Tiles 4 stamp set was stamped in red on Kraft card stock to make the border along the left side of the card.  The tree border was stamped in Frayed Burlap ink at the bottom of another panel of Kraft card stock.  The large trees and sentiment were white embossed and snowflakes stamped in white and Frayed Burlap inks were added to the sky along with white paint splatters.  Tiny gems were white embossed and added to the snowflakes for added dimension to finish the card. 

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
