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)

Deck the Halls

Hello friends!  I know it is only September, but it is not too early to begin working on cards for Christmas.  The new Deck the Halls stamp set designed by Rebecca Rios just released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is a wonderful set for creating your holiday cards.  I'm sharing these cards over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog as well.

Creative Nugget:  My first sample was made by creating a wreath with the holly leaves included in the Deck the Halls set.  Some of the leaves were cut out and popped onto the wreath for dimension.  The berries were stamped and covered with Glossy Accents.  The Christmas ball was colored with Copic Markers and hung from the wreath with metallic thread.  A bow was added, a sentiment embossed and a strip of patterned paper added to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  On my second card, the popcorn and cranberry garland was stamped repeatedly across the card and colored with Copic Markers.  The cranberries were covered with Glossy Accents.  The Christmas balls were hung with metallic thread and the sentiment embossed on a stitched circle die cut.  Behind  the popcorn panel is a strip of red card stock on which the script from Texture Tiles 1 was white embossed.

These 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...thinking and praying for those in the path of Dorian!

Hugs,
Cathy
