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)

My first project was made with the new Surrounded in Prayer and Cheerful Hexies stamp sets.

Creative Nugget:  The image from Surrounded in Prayer was colored with Copic Markers.  Distress Oxide Inks were smooshed onto a piece of mixed media paper to create a background. Streaks of white gesso were applied to the background with a credit card.  The Cheerful Hexies were then randomly stamped using the Oxide Inks.  A rectangle die was used to cut an aperture from the panel which was then popped up over the group of people.  A thin frame was also cut using rectangle dies. The sentiment was cut with a stitched rectangle die.  Sequins and an organdy bow were added to finish the card.

My second fun project also used the Cheerful Hexies stamp set.

Creative Nugget:  Texture paste was applied to a mixed media panel through a honeycomb stencil.  Distress Oxide Inks were smooshed onto a mixed media panel.  The outline hexie was stamped multiple times onto the panel.  The hexes were cut out and popped onto the background.  The Sunshine Girl Alpha was used to stamp the word "BEE" in one of the hexagons.  The cute little bees are from the Scribble Flowers stamp set.  "Happy" is from the Cheerful Hexies set and was white embossed on a hand-cut black banner.

Here are the new stamps sets used for these projects 
which are now available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store:
