His Child Sneak Peek

Hello, everyone!  Cathy here with a sneak peek of a new stamp set designed by Dina Kowal being released this Friday by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  The CAS Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers this past Monday was to use the chalkboard technique on our card or project, and since I have never used this technique before, thought I would give it a try!

The darling image and sentiment from the His Child stamp set, along with a few small poppies from the Poppies and Greetings set were stamped on a piece of True Black card stock with Fresh Snow Hybrid Ink.  The frame and faux stitches were doodled around the border using a white Prismacolor pencil.  My finger was used to smudge on more Fresh Snow ink to make this panel look more like a well used chalkboard.  Pearls were added to the centers of the poppies. This panel was mounted on a piece of Sweet Blush card stock and a pink ribbon and bow from my stash were added.  A strip of Webster's Pages DP was mounted to a Solar Crest card base before the chalkboard panel was popped on to finish the card.  These sets were perfect for this technique!

I love this reminder that we are His!  The quote by Debbie Alsdorf is even more relevant at this time of year, having just celebrated Easter where Jesus demonstrated the love He has for each of His children!

To see this entire stamp set and the other sets being released this month, please be sure to join us Friday here on the SNSS Blog and on the SNSS Member Forum over at Splitcoaststampers for a fun day filled with challenges and prizes!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to stop back again tomorrow for another sneak peek!

So pretty Cathy. The silhouette and flower images look beautiful on the black piece. The touch of pink is perfect.
