When Words Fail

Hi friends! Kim here today to share a card I recently created using the brand new stamp sets Scribble Flowers and Music to My Ears. First, I need to share that Scribble Flowers may be my favorite set ever...so many design options available! OK, now I can chat about my card...

I stamped the Music to My Ears background stamp on 100 lb. Neenah Solar White Cardstock, and then added color using Distress Inks and a water brush. Setting that piece of cardstock aside to dry, I worked on the flowers, which were stamped on the Neenah paper and colored with Copic Markers.

I created the circle cut out in my card using Spellbinders dies. (The scalloped frame was created using a large Spellbinders scalloped die nested with a plain circle die). The sheet music image was placed behind the circle die cut, the frame was attached to the outer edge of the circle.

The flowers were fussy cut (although there's no need to...this set has a matching die set!) and attached to the card using foam tape. I also added that cute little bee and the sentiment, which is from the Music to My Ears set. I added a tiny bit of shimmer, using a Wink of Stellar glitter pen, and shine, using Glossy Accents, to finish my card.

Happy Crafting!

My Comforter

Hi Everybody!

Lee Ann here, sharing a peek at a brand new Creative Worship Stamp Set!

If there was ever a time for this stamp set, it is now.  In a world gone crazy there is comfort in knowing who we can lean on, who we can run to.  This image is a beautiful reminder that we can cast all of our cares and anxieties on Him because He cares for us.  As I wrote this blog post, I realized how relative this is for me right now as I am experiencing some medical issues. 


The image, from the new, My Comforter Stamp Set, is colored with Copics and then fussy cut out.  I paired it with a sentiment from The Future Stamp Set.





I hope I have inspired you to create and I hope that this stamp set is a reminder of who holds you in His hands.

Have a blessed week!

Lee Ann  :)

Best Fishes

Hello Sweet Friends! Julie here showcasing the brand new Birthday Pals Stamp/Die Bundle along with the previously released BareTree Die Set and Tall Grass Die from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.   

I love the new Birthday Pals ClearStamp Set- perfect for cards for kids of all ages!


To create this card, I stamped the balloon image as well as the first fish from the Birthday Pals Clear Stamp Set directly on white cardstock using archival black ink and the second fish onto acetate (then laid a piece of white cardstock onto the stamped acetate for the reverse image).

I die cut all of the images out with the coordinating Birthday Pals Dies (part of the Birthday Pals Stamp/Die bundle) and colored each of the fish with water-based markers adding the white dots on the fish and the reflection on the balloon with the Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Pen.

I cut a circle out of designer paper (I saved the die cut panel for another project), mounted the circle to a piece of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment (curving it a bit) with archival black ink and added the Tall Grass Die cut from green cardstock and the Bare Tree Die cut from pink cardstock (to mimic coral).

I mounted this background panel onto a tangerine card base, added the stamped/die cut fish and balloon with dimensional foam and a few sequins to finish off the card.

I am looking forward to playing with more of the Birthday Pals images- they are so much fun!!


Have a blessed week and thanks for visiting- hugs, sweet friends!

Music to My Ears!

Hi friends, Stephanie here with a pretty clean and simple card for you.  I am using stamps from the new Music to My Ears stamp set.  I stamped the background stamp for the top half of my background and the striped paper is from My Minds Eye.  I used one of the Doily Border dies to break up the background papers and made the flower by cutting 3 circles and spritzing with water and then I crinkled them up, then opened them up and added a brad to the middle.  Love this new stamp set, so many fun ways you can use all the stamps!

It's Release Day

Happy Friday, Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers!
Today is the day we are releasing Birthday Pals, we are so excited for this cute set that goes perfectly with our Scribble Flowers set that was released a couple weeks ago. Korin made a Fabulous card using both of these sets together you can see it in the shop 
Here are a couple cards I made using the set.


For the first card I used a yellow base to coordinate with the yellow fish from the Birthday Pals set and the birthday patterned paper. I also found this Bokeh paper that looks like the ocean to pop him up on. I used Copic markers to color the images. I don't have the dies but there are matching dies when you purchase the Bundle.


The second card uses the turtle for the same set Birthday Pals,  to make this one I used a white card base some patterned paper and colored him as well with Copic markers. It's hard to see in the picture but I also added some glossy accents to his toenails and shell.

Birthday Wishes with Winnie

Hello everyone! Today I want to show you a card that's made with the stamps from Summer Fun Winnie  (and a little word from Winnie's Warm Wishes).
I stamped Winnie and the little banner with a black ink on kraft cardstock. I colored her with colored pencils from Derwent (coloursoft). These pencils have a lot of pigment in them so they work pretty well on kraft papers. I used a stencil and white ink for the background.

Faith

I admit it...I'm a bit obsessed with shaker cards lately...I simply can't stop making them! They are so much fun! I've even gone out and bought a whole bunch of shaker filling...sequins, in lots of fun colors and shapes, and chunky glitter and mica chips. Swoon...

Today's card features three stamp sets, Truth Quotes, Landscape Silhouettes, and a bird from the Nature Silhouettes set.

I started by die cutting a card base using a stitched die. I then added clouds just by sponging Distress Ink around a hand cut cloud shape. Once that piece was finished and attached to my card base, I got to work on the shaker part of the card.

I created the sunset by again using Distress Ink, a blending tool, and a die cut circle. Put the yellow ink on the cardstock first, then use the circle to create a mask and add darker ink around the circle...instant sunset!

The bird was stamped directly onto the sunset paper, the lighthouse was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and then fussy cut. The sentiment is stamped directly on to the piece of acetate that is the front of the shaker portion of the card. I die cut the frame using two nested Spellbinder dies.

To create the shaker card I adhered the acetate piece to the frame, and then added the lighthouse. I build up "walls" around the frame using foam tape, filled the walled in area with mica flakes and glitter, and then used the foam tape to attach the sunset piece. That entire piece was then attached over the cloud card base. Here's a close up of the finished card...
Thanks so much for checking in today! Happy Crafting!!
