SNSS Messy Faith and Feathers ~

Good morning Sweet'nSassy family and friends! This morning I bring you samples of one of my favourite sets from Korin. Faith is an ensemble of inspirational quotes and scriptures. It comes with seven sentiments/scriptures. My first sample tells a bit of a story...I love creativity and trying new things so I took a "let's get  messy" class with my friend and SNSS sister Cathy. It involved a gelli plate and lots of paint. We got messy and I am using one of the prints I created that evening for my background. I LOVE that it worked perfectly for my card. The feathers are from the Nature's Silhouette 2 and the birds and feathers die.
My second sample uses the same combination of stamps with second generation stamping. Very simple with no embellishments.

The Birthday Celebration continues until the end of the month. This week November 20-26 Sweet and Sassy is celebrating by offering 25% off all dies. Use this code when ordering: BDAYDIES25
Materials Used:
Stamps: Faith, Nature's Silhouette 2
Paper: SU, Hampton Arts
Inks: Paint, SU, Versafine
Accessories: SNSS dies, jute, bead
