A Mother's Love

{jane bosi}  Happy Friday, Sweet Friends!!  It's a very special Friday in my world since today is my momma's birthday!  That makes it the perfect day to share a series of cards that celebrate A Mother's Love; and feature the new Sweet and Sassy Stamp set by the same name!  I love this set, the sentiments and silhouette images.  All so sweet!

I created a series of backgrounds using  my Gelliarts gelli plate.  Friends, this a seriously addicting tool!  It's so much fun to combine colors, textures and whatever else you can think of.  Each pressing is unique.  It's kind of like opening a gift each time; you never know what you are going to get!

This final card also features a resist panel and the Whimsy Bouquet set. I added extra color to the panel using distress oxide inks.  A few sparkly blings and......done!  Sweet and simple!

Have a great day!  Jane

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Sweet Friends!

Julie here, and today I am sharing a card designed with the new  A Mother’s Love Clear Stamp Set from the SNSS April Release and the previously released stamp set, Grunge Elements 2.

With Mother’s Day only a few weeks away, A Mother’s Love Clear Stamp Set is perfect for quick and easy cards as well as more layered cards not to mention, new Mother cards or overall general encouragement.

This is an easy card to create- ink the images from A Mother’s Love  using archival black ink, emboss with clear embossing powder and add the heart image from Grunge Elements 2 with violet distress oxide ink.  Layer the panels, add the crystal drops and satin bow along with a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

Also, don't forget that you can receive the Rose Banner Clear Stamp set as the April Stamp of the Month free with a $75 (US$) net after all discounts.  


Thanks again for taking the time to visit! I hope all of you have a wonderful week, sweet friends!

Rose Banner x3

Hello! I am sharing a couple cards today using a new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp set from the April Release. This is the April Stamp of the Month set, called Rose Banner, and it's free with your $75 purchase through 4/30/18!
For my first card, I stamped the top of the roses twice onto a strip of white cardstock, cut around the top of the roses, and layered them over an embossed panel. The roses were colored with Copics.

For my second card, I first scored a piece of tan cardstock diagonally every inch in both directions. Then I masked and sponged the squares to make a tiled or quilted look. Then I placed the rose stamp in my MISTI tool and inked it with Distress Chipped Sapphire. I had a few missed spots and an idea hit. lol.  Instead of re-inking and stamping with the same color, I inked it with Distress Peacock Feathers. This gave a nice two-toned image!

My third card is a CAS one...again using my MISTI. Here I stamped it twice with 2 colors. The second time was stamped on a diecut panel and layered over the first one.

Have a great day!

A Mother's Love and Rose Banner

Hi friends, It's been awhile since I posted and it's good to be back! Today I have a couple cards I am sharing with you the first using a new release set called A Mother's Love, just in time for all your Mother's Day cards.  I love Silhouette Stamps because they make for quick and easy card.  I stamped the image with Versafine ink and then used embossing powder.  The paper is from DCWV.
 My second card is using Rose Banner which is free if you spend $75 during the month of April.  I've stamped with Versamark ink and used White embossing powder, then I used 3 different colors of Distress Oxide ink to make the background and then stamped the sentiment in black ink and used clear embossing powder.   Make sure you stop by the store or scroll on the blog to see the other new release sets this month!

Don't Worry

Hello everyone! Today I want to share another card with the beautiful rose banner flower.

The rose is pretty big and I love that it's already beautiful if you only use a part of the flower. I stamped the flower on marker paper and colored it with alcohol markers. I masked the bottom part of the stamp so I could add the pattern on the bottom on the same paper. I used a stencil and some inks to create the pattern. I covered the line between the rose and the pattern with a pink ribbon.
I stamped the message 'don't worry' on a piece of black paper with a white ink. After that I cut it out and adhered it onto my card. I used a black and white background paper and added a couple of sequins to finish the card.
I used the stamp set of the month 'Rose Banner'. You can earn this set for free with a $75 order through the month of April. For the message I used the set 'just say Jesus'.

Spring is in BLOOM!

What a beautiful day we had here in Georgia today. Spring is in FULL BLOOM! :) So I grabbed The Flowers and Bloom Clear Stamp Set and Holy Spirit Clear Stamp Single from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The latter is a new stamp this month.

I created two cards using different card stock and different inks for two fantastically different but beautiful cards.

First a new favorite go to - color pencils on Kraft. I used Polychromos and a Recollections brand Kraft. I embossed the sentiment then added some dew drops to finish it off.

The second card used watercolor paper (Canson XL) and Zig Real Color Brush Pens and distress ink (salty ocean). I inked up the blue ink onto my acrylic block and misted it and pressed it onto the paper. I inked the image with archival ink onto of the blue then colored it (even over the blue) with my markers - the blue just helped add to the shading.

I hope you are getting some Spring where you live and I hope these cards inspire to to create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Rose Banner

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers!
It's Ceal, here today to share with you a card featuring our Stamp of the Month, Rose Banner. You can earn this set free with a $75 order through the month of April. 

To create my this card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down with a scalloped stitched die. I stamped the rose image with Ink on 3 Blackout detail ink and colored it with Copic markers. Using the Mini Misti I added the greeting on the banner to finish the card.

Fun with Rose Banner

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Friends!  I hope you have been enjoying the new April Release!  I've been having fun with the new Stamp of the Month for April 2018.  Not only is this beautiful stamp set designed by Nina Brackett fun to use, but you can get it for free with a $75 purchase...however, only until the end of April 30th. 

I have a set of four cards using the Rose Banner and Texture Tiles 1 stamp sets to share with you today.

A background was made using different colors of Oxide inks on mixed media paper.  Texture was added using the Texture Tiles and coordinated ink colors.  The rose image was placed in my Misti tool and stamped with archival ink.  The rose and leaves were then painted with white gesso.  The panel was put back into the Misti and stamped again with archival ink.  A light wash of color was then added to portions of the flower and the leaves using watered down Oxide inks.

Different sentiments from the Rose Banner set were stamped on each card.

Thank you so much for stopping by...have a blessed day!

Shine On

{jane bosi}  Happy Saturday!  Today, I'm sharing a 6 x 6 canvas I created featuring some older and some newer goodies!

I started this canvas with a base layer of hymns and prayer--Timeless Hymns makes it easy to sing praises over my work!  After adding some color, I added the focal image from the Garden of Grace Printable Bundle--such a fantastic idea!!  The digital images can be sized for any project and worked perfectly for this larger canvas.

Next, I added some gold texture paste with a stencil and paper pieced a designer paper shirt for the Shine On Girl.   The Shine On sentiment is from the brand new-swoon worthy Be Unique set.  Finally, some paper flowers and sequins to add some bling.  I love her in real life......

Shine on, Jane
