God's Work Done in God's Way
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! Today, we are celebrating the November 2016 Release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps in time for the SNSS 9th Birthday Celebration!!
To celebrate, Korin at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has a lot of specials lined up this month and a live FB posting at 12 pm EST on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps FB page for even more birthday festivities!! We hope you can join in on the fun!
My card uses the brand new, SNSS Faith Quote Blocks Clear Stamp Set (designed by NinaB Designs) along with the previously released Decorative Frames Clear Stamp Set (designed by Korin Sutherland).
To create this card:
Ink the frame from SNSS Decorative Frames Clear Stamp Set with embossing ink, stamp onto a piece of black cardstock, position the sentiment from SNSS Faith Quote in the center, stamp with embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, apply a bit of white craft ink (to mimic chalk- I used my finger) and fussy-cut the frame.
Emboss a piece of white cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of black cardstock, add the crochet lace and gingham ribbon before mounting the entire panel onto the white card base.
Mount the SNSS Faith Quote Blocks panel with dimensional foam and add the rolled flowers and leaves.
Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the roses to finish off the card.
I am going to link this card to the Word Art Wednesday #244-#245 “Anything Goes” Challenge as well as the Stampin’ Royalty SR352 “All That Glitters” Challenge (there is glitter on the roses- a bit difficult to see in the photo but very “sparkly” IRL).
If you have not had a chance to stop by the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps site yet or visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
