September Release Hop: SNSS


Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps September Release Hop! There's another fabulous release in the SNSS shop that we've been stamping with and we're so excited to share our projects with you! Hop along and leave a little comment love for the designers linked below and you might just be a lucky winner! One lucky comment from all the comments along the hop will win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, September 30.

My first project is a slimline card featuring Scene Silhouettes:  Jesus Is Born along with Christmas Wordfetti.  
Distress oxide inks are perfect for creating the night sky.  A few sprinkles of water creates interest and texture.

The new Christmas Gnomes set is super adorable!  The images are fun to color and combine perfectly with the September Stamp of the Month, Holiday Greetings.

Like I said, so much fun to color!!  This slimline card also features Christmas Text in the background windows, showing off those cute little Gnomes.

You are off to your next stop, Karen's blog.  I hope you are feeling inspired and ready to get inky!!
TTFN, Jane

Hey, Friends!!  I wanted to pop on the blog today because I realize, I just haven't been. Some things have fallen away for me in this last season; unfortunately blogging has been one of them. Instagram has become a quicker platform for me to share my art when I'm lacking words.  And, this most recent season of all things different and covid has often left me without words.  If you want to follow me on Instagram, I sure would love to meet you there. You can find me @stampymom5

I spent some time in 2 Timothy when I created this bible journal page.  Truthfully, I didn't love it and wasn't planning to share it.  The ink is messy and dirty looking--off balance and not what I wanted.  It doesn't line up and certainly wasn't at all what I had in mind.  Kinda just like life. Right?  So, I decided to share it anyway because, art reflects life and likely no more so than in this offering and a time such as this.  

In a world full of division and strife; in the healing and the hurting, I pray you will be encouraged by Paul's words:

Soldier of Christ--be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus!

Share in suffering, aiming to please the One who has enlisted you!

The Lord will give you understanding in everything.  Seek Him.  Paul provides much encouragement and direction for us with his words which are just as relevant today as they were when he wrote them.    I hope that you will spend some time with Paul soaking it in.

Stamps sets from Sweet N Sassy Stamps that I used include:  Grace Upon GraceThe  Lord's Battle  and Texture Tiles 1

Thanks for stopping; may you see the faithfulness of our Lord today and for all the tomorrows, Jane
