SNSS August Release Mini Hop Day 4

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Mini Blog Hops
showcasing the August Release sets - today we're highlighting Dina Kowal's
beautiful companion set to His Child - it's called

God Is

I sponged a pre-made tag with Stampin Up's Lucky Limeade, Yoyo Yellow, and Cool Caribbean and framed it with black using the Perfect Layers Tool for cutting.  The ric rac borders in black
 were cut using the newly release Bookmark and More Dies.
I love having a ric rac border die!
What a sweet sentiment of truth to remind us that the very existence of God in
all His love and mercy is enough to answer our deepest fears.

On my second card the circle is sponged with Stampin Up's Cool Caribbean and Lavender Lace.
The little fence is cut using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Fence and Grass Die Set, and
 I used a Woodware punch for the tiny butterflies.
All dp on both cards is from Stampin Up, and the silhouette and
sentiment stamping was done in Versafine Black Onyx ink.

Now take a look at the whole set with all the details below:

Stamp set includse 3 images and 5 sentiments.
Set measures approximately 4" x 6".
the drummer boy image measures approximately 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".
Designed by Dina Kowal.
Priced at $15.

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

Both cards are wonderful! And I agree, I really like having this new smaller size ric rac die. It looks great above and below that turquoise dp panel too.

I love the little fence die as an anchor on your second card, along with the little butterflies. The colors you've used remind me of how much fun it was to get that last swing in before being called into the house for the night. Summer nights were magical and you've created that feeling in this card. Thank you as well for the wonderful reminder of God's love and mercy.
