potted florals

Good morning!
 
Today I am sharing a CAS card using the new Pretty Potted Florals and Floral Greetings (for my sentiment) stamp sets from this month's release.
 

I kept this clean and simple and used up some scraps of paper.  I pulled the colors from the paper to color with Copics.  The flower petals and pot were stamped again, colored, and popped with foam dimensionals.


Have a great Friday!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!
Diane

With Sympathy

You can't miss the new stamp sets this month. I believe we're all in love with the beautiful flower stamps that were added to the collection. They're beautiful and really versatile!

For this card I used the floral greetings stamp set. The images are so detailed and beautiful that you don't even have to color them (they're great for backgrounds too!). For this card I made a watercolor panel for the background. I just added a lot of water to my watercolor paper and dropped blue and purple paint on it. The water does the blending for you and you just have to wait until it's dry. I used the larger flower from the set and I stamped it on the background I made. I started with stamping the sentiment on the watercolor background too, but it didn't stand out that way so I decided to die-cut a piece of white paper and stamp the sentiment on it. I raised the die-cut piece a little bit with foam tape. I used dark blue card stock to match my watercolor paper and matted the watercolor piece with light pink patterned paper. This way the card didn't get too dark.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flower so it has a little sparkle (hard to see on the pictures, but this last one shows it best). I added a couple of clear sequins too to finish my card.

Floral Greetings

Hello SNSS friends!  The weather here has been unbelievably warm with temperatures reaching seventy degrees...in February.   It's is still too early for flowers, but that's okay since Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has released several new flower stamp sets to get us ready for Spring!
The flowers in the Floral Greetings stamp set designed by Gracie Chavez are perfect for embossing.

The color was sponged on Neenah card stock and the flowers white embossed.  A sentiment from the Truth Quotes 1 set is the focal point on this card which was inspired by the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge for today.

On this card the flowers were randomly embossed on the background and water colored.  The main floral image was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.

The stamp sets used to create these cards are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.



I am really enjoying working with this set and I know you will, too!
Have a blessed day!

Pretty Potted Florals Set

I am so in love with this set called Pretty Potted Florals that I decided to make a set with it. I colored all the flowers with copic markers and added some stickles to them for a little shimmer.  I tried to stay in the pink family as far as color goes and the papers are from all different companies.  I made a little tag to put on the front of the box.   This set is just so versatile and I think it is perfect for a little set! Make sure you check out the 50% off discontinued items sale going on now.  You can see the items on  HERE.

Bright Future


Happy Sunday

It's Ceal, here to share with you today a card using one of our new releases along with an older favorite. 

For my card I started with a black top folding card base and a white stitched panel. I made the background by randomly stamping the diamond from the new set Worthy King to cover the panel and colored them in with Copic markers. 
I made a focal point with one of the quotes from the set Faith Quote Blocks.
I embossed the greeting in white embossing powder and then colored the word "bright" and the heart with comic markers.




Worthy King is in the Creative Worship line, I wanted to show it can be used for a card as well.

Birthday Dog Roses with new stamps from Floral Greetings

It's Gracie Chávez and today I'm here to share a new card using the new stamp set Floral Greetings. I had the absolute joy to put together this set for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps that includes two beautiful floral images and a collection of greetings for every occasion!

My card for today is very clean with a striking color palette. I wanted the flowers to stand out more than anything else. I colored them -guiding myself by dog roses pictures- in two tones of pink and decoupaged them to add more dimension.





To create the decoupage effect I stamped the dogrose branch twice to the background and colored the images. I also stamped the flowers on another piece of white cardstock and colored them. I then fussy cut them and adhere them on top of the previously stamped background, offsetting the flowers a bit to make them look fuller.


I hope you enjoyed today's post! Make sure to take a minute and stop by the shop to take a closer look to this and other new stamps from our new release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Have a crafty, happy weekend!

Comfort...

{jane bosi}

Happy Friday!!  Today, I'm sharing a card that features two of Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps' new sets. 

I'm totally in love with the beautiful images in Krista Hamrick's illustrations.  This most recent set, Living Word, is so inspiring!  I combined the main image with Words of Life: Actions for this card of encouragement I'm sending to someone very special.

I can't wait to see what you are going to create with these wonderful goodies!  Be Awesome, Jane

Greetings! Kim here today to share a Bible journaling layout featuring the As the Deer stamp set. I am relatively new to Bible journaling and I confess that I love it! I purchased a Bible just for art journaling and its one that includes some pre-printed designs and Scripture verses that you can color or paint. I find this option can be a great source of inspiration. 

For today's layout, can I share that I love this set! It features so many sweet images that are perfect for creating scenes. This is a perfect set for creating cards as well...so many options!

On my pages I used gelatos for the background color and Prismacolor Water Color pencils for all of the coloring. And...I created a video to take you through my creative process. Enjoy!

With Sympathy

Hello Sweet Friends! It's Monika here today with a sympathy card. I love stamping and heat embossing on vellum, so when I saw the gorgeous flower images in the Floral Greetings clear stamp set, I new I had to make a card with vellum... it is a very easy technique, and looks fabulous.
If you can fussy cut the images and used them as 'embellishments' they even look better! Such a delicate look, don't you think?
 
 
I stamped (and heat embossed) the bigger flower again and after fussy cutting it, I adhered it on the base image with dimensional tape. I also stamped three butterflies... they look so wonderful fluttering around.
 
 
The background was made with Magenta Nuance light green pigment powder. I just sprinkled the powder on water color cardstock and spritzed it with water. To add a touch of shabby look to my card, I distressed the edges of the water color panel, and after assembling the card, I also added copper micro beads...

The sketch for my card came from CAS(E) this Sketch #208.
 
Thanks for stopping by,
Monika

so thankful

Good morning!
 
Today I am sharing a card using the new Floral Greetings stamp set in the Sweet 'n Sassy website.  I originally started making this as a black, white, and gray card but decided to give it a pop of raspberry color.  I'm glad I did!
 

I colored with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella to make the top butterfly and flower sparkle.  One butterfly was fussy cut and attached near the diecut corner.


Have a happy Saturday!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!
