He is strong

Hello friends!  For my card today I turned to the Celebrate Today stamp set, along with Grunge Elements, New Beginnings, and Be Encouraged.  I also used the Bookmarks & More dies and Butterfly dies.


Any monochromatic color plus black makes a striking card and I especially like the yellow/black combo.  There's a bit of green on the stems though!

Sentiment reads: When I am weak, HE IS STRONG.  So true.

Have a wonderful day!

Faith Is... Clean and Simple Spritzed Card

Good Morning!! Tami Mayberry here with you once again to share my final Clean and Simple card created using Sweet n Sassy Stamps.




For this card I once again used the Faith stamp set...because, if you haven't noticed, I'm all about getting LOTS of use from a stamp set. That's why I love, love, love the vast array of Sweet n Sassy sentiment stamp sets!!!


I began by spritzing my card front with an ink spray taking care to leave an open area for my sentiment.


Next, I rounded the corners and stamped my sentiment in the open area using black ink.


Finally, I added a few silver sequins for interest.

And there, once again, a card you can make in minutes!


Here is another look at the stamp set I used for this card.


A huge thanks to all of you for letting me share my Clean and Simple creations this month. It's been a blast playing with my Sweet n Sassy stamps, as always. Also, last but far from least, a huge thank you and hug to Korin and the whole Sweet n Sassy crew! <3

Mini Flower Blocks 1

Hello! It's Monika here today with a Spring card. 

We still have snow on the ground so I am ready for some pretty flowers and Spring colors.I decided to use one of the mini blocks from Mini Flower Blocks 1 clear stamp set


I stamped up 3 Daffodil images. After coloring the images with Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils, I cut one whole flower out, and the upper part of the second flower. Then I popped the pieces on the third, main image with dimensional tape.


The background was stamped with images from Vintage Postcard clear stamp set (out of stock). I also spritzed black ink over the background with my Spritzer Tool. The greeting is from Keep in Touch Too clear stamp set


I also added a sweet little butterfly, stamped and heat embossed on vellum. The image is from Majestic Monarchs clear stamp set. It was die-cut with the coordinating Monarchs Dies

Thank you for stopping by today,
Monika

You Are Treasured ~

Mary's Version of No-line colouring  

Good Morning Sweet'n Sassy Friends! Mary here to share with you my version of no-line stamping. Treasured was just featured on the Sweet Perks Club with a new matching Treasured die! So, I wanted to use this set for my technique. Let's get started!
Gather your materials - here I have my stamp of choice, a light memento ink and my copic markers.
Stamp your image of choice onto Copic compatible cardstock with a light coloured Memento ink. I used Desert Sand on Neenah Cardstock.
Colour your image with your copic markers, blending your colours accordingly.
Once, you are finished, die cut your image and finish your card to your liking.
Materials:
Stamps: Treasured
Inks: Memento Desert Sand, Versafine Vintage sepia, Copics
Paper: Neenah CS, SU CS and DSP
Accessories: SNSS dies, SU dies, Ribbon

Here is another sample I made using this same technique. This card features Praise the Lord set and matching bluebird die.
I so love the soft look this technique creates, why not grab your favourite SNSS image, your favourite medium and create a card? I look forward to seeing your creations! 

Have a wonderful Week!!

Feeling Better

{jane bosi}
Hello, Sweet Friends and welcome to Sunday Morning!!!  While this is posting, I will be busy praising the Lord during worship time at church---one of my most favorite times of the week!!

I'm sharing a get well card today....seems as though this winter has been brutal for so many people!  I've used my Get Well Critters Set a bunch of times since the release---it sure is a handy set to have!

I started with a great sketch I saw somewhere in cyber land and then added a few details!  The bottom of my green card stock is shaped using the Hillside Edges Die Set--just a little something different.  Next, I added some strips of designer paper from my scrap bucket and a few paper flowers.

I hope it's just enough to bring a smile to my not-feeling-well favorite person!
TTFN, Jane

All you need...is a cat...

Hi there, friends, and welcome to the weekend!  Today I'm sharing a card I created with one of our newly released stamp sets...Kitty Love!  I am such a fan of silhouette images and now we have a silhouette set with cats!  Yippee!

My card started with lots of layers...one dry embossed, one covered in wee little paw prints, and a bunch of others that are there simply to add color!

My main panel started out life as a piece of cream cardstock.  I used a blending tool and Distress Ink to cover a large portion of the cardstock in Scattered Straw ink.  I then put a large circle mask over the cardstock and added more Distress Ink colors...Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey.  I then used the Typewriter Text background stamp to add a little bit of stamping inside the sun.  (You could mask off the background so the text image won't get on the rest of the card, but using acrylic stamps means you can bend them to stamp only where you want the text.)  The cat was stamped on cardstock and cut out.  I also used Distress Embossing Powder in Black Soot to add some texture to the cat.  The Distress Powder just adds texture, without adding shine.

To finish the card, I used foam tape to attach the cat, stamped the sentiment, and added the heart.  (The string holding the heart was hand drawn)

Enjoy and  have a great weekend!
