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)

Hey Chick!

Happy Friday to all my peeps!  Today I'm sharing a couple of cards using some farm themed products released by Divinity Designs this month.

Creative Nugget: Oxide inks were applied to the back of the Arrows Stencil, spritzed with water and smooshed onto a piece of mixed media paper cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die to create a splash of color.  Some twine was wrapped around the card front and A Circle cut from the following card was popped over the twine.  Love the Chicken Wire Background Die and those adorable little peeps from the Farm Friends Stamp/Die Duo.  A sentiment from the Hogs & Kisses stamp set was embossed up in the corner and some sequins added to finish this CAS card.  There you have it...1 sentiment, 2 colors, 3 peeps, 4 layers, and 5 sequins!

My second card features all the same stamps and dies!

Creative Nugget:  The Chicken Wire Background was mounted to a piece of mixed media paper covered with a splash of Oxide inks to create the card front.  The little peeps were randomly stamped through the Chicken Wire and a Circle cut from the lower corner. This is the circle that was used for the card above...can't resist a chance to use all the leftovers!  A little frame was created using the Double Stitched Circle and Circle Dies to place around the circular aperture.  Two banners were cut with one of the Treat Tags Dies...the black one was adhered across the circle and a sentiment from the  Hogs & Kisses stamp set was embossed on the yellow one.  Another of the sentiments was embossed on the yellow circle and an extra little chick added to finish the card.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...enjoy your weekend!

Two great cards Cathy, the white space of the first one appeals particularly to the CAS-loving side of me! Thanks for joining us at Daring Cardmakers this week!
