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)

Back to School

Hello friends!'s August already!  That means it's time for a new release by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps AND almost time for the kids to head back to school.  One of the new stamp sets designed by Jennifer Nilsson, Back to School, is perfect for tucking little notes into a child's lunchbox or sending the new teacher a note of appreciation. I'm sharing a couple of cards over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog today.

Creative Nugget:  The design of this card is from the current Mojo Monday Sketch.  Oxide inks were applied to an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped onto the upper corner of the card.  The corner was masked off and the Typewriter Text Background was stamped over the color.  The images were colored with Copic Markers, cut out and mounted to the card following the sketch.

Creative Nugget:  The background on this card was created the same way as the card above.  More images from the Back to School stamp set were colored, cut out and mounted to the card. A little Glossy Accents was added to the windows on the bus and schoolhouse to finish the card.

The following stamp sets from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store were used to create the cards above:

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

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

Cathymac your back to school card brought a big smile to my face. A little one or big one having this in their lunch bucket would be so surprised. So glad you could join us over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge. Best of luck and hope to see you again soon. DT~Jana Forrest
