Heart Candy

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers! 
It's Ceal, here to share a couple of samples using our new release, Heart Candy. This set is super cute and super fun to use. 

My First sample is a shaker card made to mimic a box of conversation hearts.
I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I stamped the box and then cut out the shaker. I filled a cellophane pocket with a heart sequin mix and then placed it in the shaker window. 

My second sample just uses the hearts themselves in fun colors and sayings just like conversation hearts.

Candy Heart.

 Hello! It's Monika here today with couple of extra SWEET cards. 

While I don't send out Valentine's Day cards, Heart Candy clear stamp set is perfect for other occasions... like birthdays!
I stamped 4 hearts on scrap paper, cut them out and used them as masks to make this cool and super SWEET background. The images were colored with Reese Brea shimmer paint.
The greeting is from Keep in Touch Too clear stamp set, a must have set with 20+ different greetings.

My second card is a mixed media style card. I am not sure what I was thinking as I was making it, but I like how it turned out! LOL! A little bit of distressing added a nice touch to this "cheer you up" card. Again, I used shimmer paint to add sparkle to my card. I got the silver glitter snowflake on clearance and it was the perfect backdrop to the pink heart... 

I hope I have inspired you to craft today!

Thank you for stopping by,

Llama Just Say...

Hello sweet friends...Happy Friday!  I have two cards to share with you today using the Llama Love and Filigree Hearts stamp sets.

I decided to use this very cute and versatile stamp set to add to my stash of birthday cards. The mountain image from the Llama Love set was stamped repeatedly across the card and masked before sponging the sky and foreground with Oxide inks.  A heart was cut from the center of the card using a Spellbinders Die.  The mountains and all of the images were colored with Copic Markers.  The llamas and cacti were cut out and popped onto the card.  A few little flowers were added to the cacti to finish the card.

Filigree Hearts is the January Stamp of the Month and is free with a $75 dollar purchase from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store until the end of the month.  Several of the heart images were white embossed on a mixed media panel.  Purple and Pink Oxide Inks were then sponged and spritzed with water to create this kind of 70's retro look background.  The panel was cut diagonally and the sentiment stamped using the Sunshine Girl Alpha was inserted.  The little VW Bug image from the Go God's Way perfectly fit the style of the card.  The words on the signpost were hand lettered.  A few bitty sparkles were added to finish the card.  This card will be given on Valentine's Day to a special little girl at my church who loves purple and pink!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a blessed weekend!

heart candy

Good morning! I have a few Valentine cards to share today using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Heart Candy stamp set. This set is so fun to use and brings back memories of those little boxes of candy! I also used In Stitches Alpha, So Sweet Cocoa, and Punny Love.
My first card is a pop-up box card which folds flat for placing in an envelope.

I added several of the stamped candies plus a few die cut hearts inside.

The word LOVE was stamped with the In Stitches Alpha and added to the back.

My second card is very CAS. I simply stamped the candies and hearts, then drew arms and legs with a black pen.

For my third card, I stamped the hearts and drew lines to "hang" them for decorations. Cocoa Mouse with his valentine cupcake is enjoying the party!

Have a great day!

Punny Valentines | Julee Tilman

Hi Sweet 'n Sassy friends! It's Julee Tilman, popping in with some inspiration using the new Punny Love stamp set. Isn't this set adorable?

When Korin showed us the artwork for this adorable set, I just knew I had to have it. My boys are totally crazy for waffles, ramen, and puns, so I started out with the I love you a waffle lot image. I colored the waffle with Copics and then picked some papers from my stash to match. Then I did a teeny bit of surgery on my stamp to detach the waffle from the sentiment. I stamped one waffle on the designer paper, then masked it and continued stamping down the column.  The punny image and sentiment are cut with a circle die to finish off this simple valentine.

Next I worked on a Valentine for my hubby. We have a long standing battle over what happens to the person who doesn't pull a new stick of butter from the freezer when they use up the butter in the fridge. So I thought the you're my butter half pun would be perfect for a card for him. I used some rounded rectangle dies to cut the image and designer paper to play on the shape of a butter stick. Classy and not too frilly, I think this will be a perfect manly valentine to give my sweetie.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have four more punny valentines using this set over on my blog today, so hop over there for more inspiration.

A little LOVE

Hello friends, Stephanie here today with a couple sweet Valentine's Day Cards.  Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays to make and send cards for.
This first card features Punny Love which has to be one of the cutest stamp sets ever!  I kept it pretty simple here just using 3 of the main stamps from the set and then the little hearts.  I colored with copics and there is no designer paper (shock) and no sewing (double shock).
This next set features our Stamp of the month set called Filigree Hearts. First I stamped some of the hearts onto mix media paper with versafine ink and heat embossed with white ink then  I did the smooshing technique with some distressed oxide inks and splattered with some water.  I mounted design onto black cardstock and sewed around the edges.  Remember this set is FREE with a $75 purchase!

Pizza & Bacon

Hello! Today I want to share a couple of Punny Love cards with you. I love that you can make quick cute cards with this set.
This card isn't so hard to make. I stamped the image on marker paper and colored it with a few red and cream colored markers. I used a die cut to make the tag and added a light grey distressed border to it. After that all I had to do was to pick a nice patterned paper for the background and a couple of items to add to the card.

For the second card I used the same idea. I colored the image with alcohol markers and used a green border on the tag this time. I added a few enamel dots and a ribbon to finish the card.
I used the stamp set Punny Love.
I hope you're inspired to create something today!

Punny Love

There is a new January release at Sweet N Sassy called Punny Love and it is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E and so choc full of potential for sweet projects from Valentines to inspiration cards!

I found some mini envelopes (4.125"x 2.75") and created little Valentines - I am working on a "class set". I used the little hearts from the set and with versamark, created tone on tone decoration for the envelopes.

While I was making minis, I made some fun little lunchbox cards. Don't you think kiddos will get a kick out of getting these in their lunch boxes!?

I also thought some of these sentiments could be used for encouragement for kids so I made a simple card using the "egg-stra special" image.

These are all quick and easy and so much fun you will want to stamp them all!

I hope you are inspired today! Thanks for stopping by!!

Heart Candy.....

{jane bosi}  I am completely loving this month's releases!!!  My first card features Punny Love.  This set is such fun, I can barely put it down!!  It's a simple one layer-ish card that would be easy to mass produce if that's your thing.  I colored the images with various distress inks and an aqua brush.  To make the hearts pop, I added a bit of dimensional glue to each one.

My second card features Heart Candy and has a vintage kind of feel to it. 

The minute this set was in my hand, it demanded a shaker box.  So, I pulled out a few old school techniques such as paper piecing and shaker box making.  Tried and true, good old techniques.  The scallop image running through the red panel is a retired Sweet N Sassy set called Borders and Backgrounds.  I love the candy heart sayings that are perfect for just about anyone!

That's all for now--go get inky!
TTFN, Jane
