Black Friday Sale & December S.P. Club

Hello friends!!  I trust you had a most enjoyable Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones and lots of delicious food!  Isn't God GOOD? :)  He blesses us daily with more than we deserve.  I am so thankful for His love and care.

We've got two exciting things to share with you today, so I best get on with it!

First up, we are thrilled to share our Black Friday specials with you! Sales end Monday, December 1st.

http://www.sweetnsassystamps.com/black-friday-sale/

Next...for our December Sweet Perks Club we will only have ONE bundle to offer AND we only have 28 bundles available.  This will not be the new norm for our club, but we had to do things a bit differently this month.  If you love this month's bundle, you will want to snatch it up right away.  Once we sell 28 bundles, we'll pull it from the site.  We will reorder more stamp sets and coordinating dies, but we aren't sure how soon they will be in stock.

For full details about our Sweet Perks Club, please CLICK HERE.

Our December Sweet Perks Club bundle includes our Valentine Critters set (released this past January) and a new coordinating set of dies.

Merry Christmas

Hello friends! Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends who are celebrating this holiday today!!  I love Thanksgiving, in Peru, we don't celebrate it and since I move to the States I have adopted this celebration, just love it!!

Ok, today, I have for you a very simple and pretty Christmas card! I used Christmas Silhouettes stamp set, I stamped the berries on a piece of white cardstock in Versamark ink, then added White Embossing powder and heat set. I used Light blue and black gelatos to create the embossing resist.
Then, stamped and die-cut the Christmas tree in Golden Glitz Delicata. The sentiment was stamped in a piece of Kraft Cardstock.
Added the panels to card base and tie on red twine. Finally I added Ruby Liquid Pearls to the berries.

Also sharing that this is my last post as a Design Team member for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I've decided to step down and take care of my health and family. I want to thank Korin for the opportunity to design for her and her business. Wishing her the best in all the upcoming things.


Many blessings to you all!

Just for You Friend


Hello, it's Bridget here with one of my Christmas card creations
using the sweet set Snowman Soup - it has such fun images
and sentiments.  I've been experimenting with
watercoloring images, using copics to add some darker shading.
The snowflakes are die-cut using Small Snowflake Dies - I punched
a few holes in them with my small punches just for fun, then
added some gems at the center.
Seems I always have to leave a little white space on a
card, even when using dp, and this layout
allows for that while combining patterns too.
As we head towards December, I hope you're having fun
with your holiday card making -
if you're looking for something wonderful to work with, check out
ALL of the beautiful Christmas stamps at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Birthday Blessings

Good Morning, Good Morning!

How are you friends?  Jacquie here, to share a QUICK birthday card with you.  The card I am sharing today, is created with scraps I had in my little scrap bin!  I LOVE being able to utilize my "left overs"!  I also used the SNSS Birthday Word Die and the SNSS Companion Words clear stamp set!  I cut a brown rectangle and then cut my shimmery paper out in a fishtail like banner!   I stamped the blessings sentiment in TH Twig Distress Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I just added some sequins and rhinestones! Voila!!  A QUICK birthday card for a guy!  I LOVE how versatile this die and stamp set are!











Thanks for stopping by and sharing with me today!  Have a WONDERFUL day!

Blessings Wreath ~

Good morning Sweet'nSassy friends and fans! Mary here, sharing a very simple card combining different dies and actually coloured a wreath! That is a huge plus for me. My life has been overrun with life.

My card features the recently released Hillside Edges Die (can we say, oh so cute!!!) combined with Seasonal Wreaths and matching dies. While I didn't think these two went together, I talked myself into thinking that they looked like the Dickens village that people place on mantels or tree skirts. So, why not?

SNSS is having a Black Friday Sale!!!! Who doesn't love a great sale? Be sure to check out the online store first thing Friday!
Materials Used:
Stamps: Seasonal Wreaths
Inks: Tombow markers, Versafine ink, QQ powder puff inks

Blessings...

Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you a project. 

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and before I fully immerse myself in Christmas cards, I figured I could squeeze in a  Fall card. It could work for other occasions too... and it's not gender specific. 

I like mixing and matching stamp sets, but this time, I only used one stamp set and one die! I reached for the new Bare Tree Die set and die cut a tree as my focal point. 


The background was sponged using a stencil, sponge dauber and ink pad. I also splashed some water on it, and spritzed it with brown ink (using a Spritzer Tool). 


The greeting (Companion Words clear stamp set) was heat embossed with silver embossing powder on vellum. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Monika

A Woman That Feareth...

Hi all!  It's Kim (Schofield) and I'm so excited to be back with the Sweet 'n Sassy design team!  Today is my first time back sharing a project on the blog - yeah!  Check out all the details below...

While today's project is a traditional card size (5.5"x4.25"), I mounted the design on heavy chipboard and am thinking of it as a tiny canvas, being held by an easel.  The verse is a good one to keep out on my desk...remind me of what's really important. :-)

To start, I stamped and embossed the large background design from the Leafy Flourish set on a piece of vintage book paper.  I used Wendy Vecchi's Archival Ink and embossing powder (Watering Can) on the flourish design.  That combo left me with just spots of embossed areas vs. the entire piece being shiny.  The ink very quickly soaked into the paper, which meant that the powder only stuck to a few areas...love the worn, vintage look!

After my "canvas" base was cut, I layered with black and cream cardstock.  I also ages all of my edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

Next, I die cut a circle and used the Delightfully Delicate Background stamp to add a design to the circle, before stamping the verse.  (I also added a tiny piece of polka dot paper and faux stitched the two pieces of paper together.)

Once my verse circle was finished, I got to work on those beautiful poppies from the Precious Poppies set.   I used black Archival Ink to stamp the image on heavy watercolor paper and colored the images using Prismacolor Watercolor pencils (LOVE them!)

The last step was to cut out the flowers and attach them to my card.  I attached the first flower flat and then used foam tape to attach the other flowers.

I hope you enjoyed today's card!  Now run out and grab yourself some of these beautiful stamps!!
