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)

Looking Back at the Divinity Designs January 2019 Release

Good morning, friends!  Today we are taking another look at the Divinity Designs January 2019 Release.  Some of the new product were used to make a half-shutter card and a couple of favors perfect to give as little gifts.

My first sample use the new Apple Branch stamp set, the Half-Shutter Card with Layers Dies and the Circles Stencil.

Creative Nugget:  Different shades of red Oxide inks were sponged through the Circles Stencil on mixed media paper.  The stencil was then cleaned off and shifted over to the right and down a little before adding Fossilized Amber ink.  These panels were then used for the layers on the card base.  Copic Markers were used to color the Apple Branch.  Papers from the Christmas Collection 2017 were used on the Belly Band and for some of the layers.  Pierced Rectangle Dies and Lavish Layers Dies were used to cut some of the layers. 

The same dies were used to cut the layers for the sentiments on the inside of the card.

I had fun matching the colors, papers and stenciled panels for my card!

The new Festive Favor Dies were used to create a couple of little gifts for some special friends.

Creative Nugget:  Mixed media panels created with the Circle Stencil and Oxide inks were cut down and sized using Pierced Rectangle Dies.  The stencil was then used to emboss the layer on the flap.  The flowers and leaves were cut from scraps and pearls colored with a Copic Marker were added to the centers of the flowers.   The sentiments from the Festive Favor Tag Sentiments Stamp Set were stamped on the little tags and tied onto the favor with twine.

Creative Nugget:  My second Festive Favor was made much the same way except paper from the Christmas Collection 2017 Paper Pad was used and a frame around the opening was cut with a Filigree Circle Die and a Circle Die.  The Circle Stencil was again used to emboss the flap.

I love all the little dies included with the Festive Favor Dies that can be used to decorate these fun little favors perfect for gifts throughout the year.
