Born on This Day

Hello, Everyone!  
I am so glad you are here and I hope you are joining us for the Sweet n' Sassy blog hop.  There are so many beautiful cards to see; you are sure to be inspired. Today's set has to be my favorite of the release.  
Welcome to day 4 of our September feature Blog Hops!  
Today we're featuring Korin's precious new Born This Day stamp set and coordinating dies.

I decided I wanted an outside scene, so I cut the window frame off of the image.  I colored the image with copics and fussy cut it out (but you won't have to do that as there is now a die available to do the work for you!). I sponged a piece of paper with Night of Navy ink on top and a small section of Crumb Cake ink on the bottom for the ground.  I embossed the star with silver ep and added a few dots of Versamark and embossed them as well to add stars to my night sky.  I painted a piece of white cs with DecorArt Splendid Gold ink and punched out a circle from it to make a halo to put behind Baby Jesus' head. 
Here are the deets on this precious set-

  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 13 sentiments and scripture verses
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The manger image measures approximately 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set - $15
  • Die set - $8.25
  • Bundle ($23.25 value) - $21
