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)

Iris Inspiration

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a few cards over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog using some of the new products from the June Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release.  


My first card uses the Happy Irises set which is the Stamp of the Month.

Creative Nugget:  Distress Oxide inks were applied to an acrylic block, spritzed with water, stamped off once, spritzed again and stamped onto a mixed media panel.  Texture was added with one of the stamps from Texture Tiles 1.  The panel was framed with a Penny Black die cut and mounted to pink card stock.  The framed piece was layered onto a panel embossed with a TH embossing folder.  The iris from the Happy Irises stamp set was colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Scan 'N Cut and popped onto the card front with fun foam glued to the back for dimension.  The sentiment was white embossed on hand cut banners.  A few sequins were added to finish the card.  I love all colors but this pink and green combo has got to be a favorite!

Creative Nugget:  This card was made with the Mer-mazing and Llama Love stamp sets for a little girl from my church who just moved and will no longer be in our class.  We will miss her, but hopefully these cute little ocean critters will remind her how much Jesus loves her and we do too!  A Tailored Expressions Sunburst Die was cut from different papers and pieced back into the frame to create the top of the card.  Oxide inks were used to create the bottom of the card.  Shells from Mer-mazing were stamped on Kraft card stock for the center strip.  The sections of the card were divided with jute twine and some of the images were colored with Copic Markers and popped onto the card.  The little crab was watercolored with Zig Clean Color Markers, the sentiment from Llama Love was stamped and google eyes were added to finish the card.
