I will not fear

Good morning!  Today I am sharing this card using one of the new bible journaling sets this month called Good Shepherd.

The image was totally paper pieced. I only used a little bit of Copic marker to highlight the lamb.  Here's a closer view...

Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

Just Keep Swimming

Well, I am having some fun making shaker cards! I know I am slow to jump on the bandwagon, but I am on! This is my second attempt, and again, I have some naughty sequins and beads that want to stick to some adhesive I forgot to "erase." But I will never tell where! Only the recipient will know!

This one was made with Happy Ocean Friends and the Tall Grass Die. I colored them with Copic markers and then glued them to the background paper. Remember to get rid of ANY remaining dried glue (note to self!). I like how the ric rac looks like waves. The multi-colored Prima flowers fit in with the color scheme exactly. I forgot all about a sentiment, and was really hoping that I could stamp it cleanly after the entire card was put together.

Last night my sister (who is visiting from Arizona) and I went to see Finding Dory (AWESOME!), so I knew just what sentiment I would choose.

This is going to my daughter, who is almost done with Cosmetology School!

Awesome Thoughts

Hello! It's Monika here today with an inspirational card, using Awesome Thoughts clear stamp set.
I wanted something bright and summery, hence the yellow/orange hues.
I stamped the flower cluster image from Winnie's Garden clear stamp set on the bottom part with orange ink, then sponged it with yellow ink.
The sun rays were sponged with a Tim Holtz stencil, then spritzed lightly with a Spritzer Tool and black marker.
To 'dress up' the card a little, I just added some vellum flowers and thread.
Thank you for stopping by,

How's It Growing?

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie, here to share a card that I designed using Winnie’sGarden, a clear stamp set designed by Wynne Gettelfinger from the current Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp release. 

Winnie's Garden is a 26 pc stamp set with eight line art images and eighteen sentiments- an encouraging stamp set for so many different occasions! 

This card was fairly easy to create- stamp the Winnie’s Garden girl with flowers image with archival black ink onto watercolor paper and color her with water-based markers.

Ink and stamp the sentiment in the same manner as above and repeat the “landscape” in the background, die-cut a few layers and create a bit of texture with embossing folders to finish off this fun card.

Thanks for visiting us today- I hope I have inspired you to create something fun :-)

Hugs and have a blessed week, sweet friends!

Rise & Shine

Happy Saturday Sweet 'n Sassy friends, its Ceal here to share a CAS card with you using the Fill Me Up set from our Creative Worship line. 
I made this card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers summer blog hop. I don't drink coffee but I love to participate in these quarterly hops and I love to use coffee related images. This set Fill Me Up, designed by Rebeca Rios is super cute and fun. I paper pieced the cup and made the background using a sunburst stencil to go with the sentiment. I pray that we all rise and shine for Jesus everyday!

The Good Shepherd

Hello everyone! Lucinde here. It's my first time sharing a card on this blog, but you might know me from my blogs at Creative Worship. Today I want to show you a card that's made with one of the Creative Worship stamps sets. Eventhough they're made for bible journaling, that doesn't mean you can't use them for cards! I think I might use some sets more often for cards than for journaling ;).

For this card I stamped a little scene with the stamps from 'Good Shepherd'. I love the little sheeps! I stamped the shepherd first and masked him to stamp the hills in the background. I colored the images with colored pencils and diecut the frame around the scene. After that all I had to do is adhering everything onto my card.
I hope I could inspire you to create today! And don't forget to take a look at the new stamp sets from this month, they're amazing!

Wishing You...

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy friends!  Cathy here with two very different cards to share with you today.  I have a great niece who is three so I like to keep fun cards on hand for special occasions.  There are so many cute stamp sets at the SNSS Store that are perfect for this, but for her next fun-filled birthday, I just had to use this adorable clown from the Circus Fun stamp set.

Fun papers by American Crafts provided the ideal background for the clown which was paper pieced and colored with Copic Markers.  The balloons were colored and given a coat of Glossy Accents to look translucent.  Banner Dies were used to create the banner across the top of the card which was mounted to twine and attached with foam tape. 

I also needed to wish friends at church the love, peace, and comfort of the Lord after the loss of their mother/MIL.   Precious Poppies and a technique learned at a recent Clear & Sheer Online Class were used for my sympathy card.  

 The poppies were white embossed on a piece of vellum dyed with Memento dye inks.  The vellum was attached to card stock that was embossed using the Anna Griffin Poppies folder and mounted to a card base.  The sympathy greeting from the Script Sentiments stamp set was gold embossed on a strip of white card stock and attached to the card.  A bow and gold pearls were added to finish the card.  A sentiment from Sympathy Innies was gold embossed on the inside.
(The Precious Poppies stamp set is currently out of stock but will be available soon.)
