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)

SNSS July 2019 Release Blog Hop


Hello friends and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July 2019 Release Blog Hop!  We are so excited about the release this month...get ready to blast off to see samples that are just out of this world!



The participating blogs are linked below...just follow along and get ready to be inspired by the samples created just for you by the Creative Team.  Be sure to leave a little love behind to be eligible for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.

Cathy McCauley (You are here!)

For my first sample, I use the adorable new stamp set, Over the Moon, designed by Jennifer Nilsson.

Creative Nugget:  A galaxy background was created with Oxide Inks on mixed media paper.  The star was cut from a white panel with my Scan 'N Cut and a Stitched Rectangle frame was then embossed on the panel.  A few stars and a sentiment from the Over the Moon stamp set were silver embossed.  A pair of astronauts were colored with Copic Markers, joined together with silver metallic thread and popped onto the card.  A few gemstones were added to finish the card.

The newly designed By the Sea stamp set was used to create my second sample.


Creative Nugget:  The Adirondack chair image from the By the Sea was white embossed on a Kraft panel and the umbrella paper pieced with paper from my stash.  A frame was cut from white card stock and the sentiment embossed.  The shells were colored with Copic markers and added to finish the card.

Ceal is next on the blog list so hop on over to her blog for more fabulous inspiration!

Thank so much for stopping by...enjoy the rest of the hop!

Hugs,
Cathymac

So cute! I have been thinking about the space set for my Son, because he’d love an astronaut boy that looks like him when colored.
