Today I have two projects using a new set from Sweet N Sassy called Let us Rejoice. One is pretty clean and simple and the other is a journal page. This set is absolutely precious! I had a great time playing with them!

First I have clean and simple card that was all about the coloring. I really love to use pencils on kraft. There is just something so perfect in the combo. I stamped up my image on a 4.25 (square) card from Neenah Dessert Storm and colored it with Polychromos pencils. I didn’t want to have to mask so I colored the baby Jesus separately and fussy cut it and adhered it to make sure it blended with Mary and Joseph. I blended out a little night sky and added one of the sentiments from the set (there are a few wonderful choices!) I rounded the corners and added twine (I dyed it to match the sky using Copic markers) and a star button – it was a little on the bright yellow side so I colored over it with a Copic color that matched the yellow gold on Joseph’s robes.

For my second project, I have an art journal page and I really love it. This is in my disc bound 6×6 journal. I used Distress Oxides for the background . I spritzed a little water for some “stars” and added some washi tape for the “straw” – the washi part is my least favorite part, but I played with it over and over and decided it was a mixed media piece and I could just build on it. I am ok with the final result :). I colored my images from Let us Rejoice with Copics, fussy cut them and adhered them to my page. I grabbed the star die from the Born this Day Set (love this one for it’s sweet image and great sentiments for inside and outside of the card.) I cut the verse from Let us rejoice into strips and cut off the word joy to replace it with a Joy die-cut from the Peace and Joy Word Dies set. After I got to hear, I felt like I needed someone to rejoice at the star so I added the Scene Silhouettes: Jesus is Born wise men into the background and that was the missing piece for me… some white pen doodles finish this off and it makes me smile out loud!

I love them both and I think it really shows how versatile this set is!!

Thanks for stopping by!
