sending hugs

Good morning! I am sharing some cards today using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets from the May Release. Here I used Girl Power, Itty Bitty Blossoms, and the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts (free with your $75 order). It is a great release and Girl Power keeps selling be sure to grab yours!

The girls were designed for Bible Journaling but they work nicely for card making too. I wanted to put one in a window so I die cut a pretty one and stamped some Itty Bitty Blossoms above.

I also die cut an opening on my second card for another girl. Then I highlighted some words with a circle punch and banner die. Her clothing was paper pieced.

Have a great day!

Itty Bitty Blossoms

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers!
It's Ceal, here to share a card with you today using one new releases. wasn't the May release aMAYzing? So many fabulous stamps.

 I used three different sets on my card, a couple new releases and then an older one. 
To create my card I started with a top folding white cad base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I embossed the lower half of the pane and for the upper part I used some post it note tape to mask off a section and then randomly stamped some flowers from the Itty Bitty Blossoms set. The sentiment "praying" is from another new release Scripty Thoughts, which also happens to be the Stamp of the Month so you can earn it free with a $75 order The sentiment "today & Everyday" is from the Thoughtful Words set.

Girl Power

Hello Sweet Friends!  Can I just tell you how much fun the new Girl Power Stamp Set from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps May Release is to use?!  You will seriously want to start putting these girls on every card you create.  The possibilities for dressing them up are endless!  I have two cards to share with you today using this fun new set.  This first one is my favorite!

I started by creating a galaxy sky with Distress Oxide Inks.  A circle was cut from the panel for the world from the Send Me stamp set.  The sentiment from Timeless Hymns was white embossed and then the fun began!   Five of the girls from the Girl Power set were stamped and dressed using many of the little accessories included in the stamp set.  I had so much fun practicing different skin and hair colors using Copic Markers.  ***LOVE***

The second card was created for a birthday because you can never have too many birthday cards in your stash!

The card base and panels were made with papers from Dare to B Artsy and the main panel was embossed with a burlap texture plate.  The wavy-haired girl from the Girl Power set was colored with Copic Markers except for her top which was paper pieced.  Her glasses were gold embossed, fussy cut and popped up...Glossy Accents was added to the glass lenses.  A flower from the new Itty Bitty Blossoms stamp set was fussy cut and added to her top.  The sentiment is from the Scripty Thoughts stamp set which is FREE this month with a $75 purchase.  

Thanks so much for stopping by..have a wonderfully blessed day!

Get Well Wishes

Hello Sweet Friends!  It's Sheri here today with a couple cards featuring the NEW Itty Bitty Blossoms and Scripty Thoughts stamp sets.  I had so much fun creating these wreaths with all the different elements in the set.  I then used copic markers to color the images and added a sentiment.  This type of card would be perfect for mass producing and waiting to add a sentiment until you need the card.

 Dont's forget that the Scripty Thoughts stamp set is the May 2018 Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 order (after all discounts and before shipping & tax) through 5/31/18

Happy Stamping!

cacti greetings

Good morning! Today I am sharing two cards using some new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets from the May Release. Here I used Refresh My Soul and the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts (free with your $75 order).
On my first card, I punched a 2" circle in the white layer. Then I used 3 small images stamped repeatedly to frame the opening. The cactus was added and the whole layer was popped up.

I stamped the large cactus repeatedly on the background of my second card. Then I punched three circles to add the cute cacti. Both cards have a few dots of Stickles to add a touch of sparkle. These images are versatile for many occasions.

Have a great day!

Refresh My Soul

{jane bosi}   Happy Tuesday, Sweet Friends!!  Today, I have a few projects to share.  Both feature Refresh My Soul--I just cannot get enough of this set!!  It's so much fun to color and layer!  The card above also features the Stamp of The Month, Scripty Thoughts

Using water color paper, I first stamped and masked off a variety of the cacti and succulent images.  These are so much fun!!  I water colored with distress inks and an aqua brush.  I floated in more color with a generous amount of water a paint brush. 

My second project is one of my favorites this month!  I started with a 3 x 3 canvas, a stencil and some embossing paste.  Before the paste dried, I spritzed a variety of Dylusions ink sprays on the surface.  While that was drying completely, I stamped, embossed and cut out a variety of the images from Refresh My Soul.  I layered all of the images, leaving them uncolored.  With the colorful background, the images really didn't need more color.  For a little extra bling, I added some glitter glue and some sequins.  I love how it turned out.  And, I have the perfect person that I want to give it to!
Enjoy!! Be Awesome!  Jane

Let's Do This!

Hi Sweet Friends!

Juliehere and I am sharing another mixed media card using the May release stamp sets, Refresh My Soul and Let’s Do This. 

I love the fun images and sentiments in Refresh My Soul as well as the wonderful worship words in the Let’s Do This- perfect for cards, Bible Art Journaling, scrapbooking as well as gifts or home décor.

To create this card, I layered a die-cut a piece of white cardstock onto black cardstock and added the layered strip of designer paper before mounting the card front onto the white card base.

I stamped the various words from Let’s Do This with embossing ink onto a die cut tag, heat embossed the images with white embossing powder and added the gingham ribbon bow before mounting onto the card front with dimensional foam.

The cacti images from Refresh My Soul were stamped with archival black ink onto white cardstock, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and once the images cooled, watercolored with water-based markers. The images were fussy-cut and mounted onto the card front with dimensional foam.

To finish off the card, I used a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the images and a few rhinestones for a bit of shine.

I hope I have inspired you today and don't forget, you can receive the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts free with a net $75 US$ order (after all discounts and before shipping) plus any net $75 US receives free shipping! 

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope all of you have a blessed week!

Itty Bitty Blossoms

Happy Mother's Day, friends!
Today I am sharing a couple cards using some new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets from the May Release. I used Itty Bitty Blossoms and the May Stamp of the Month, Scripty Thoughts (free with your $75 order). But before I get to the cards, be sure to check out the Mother's Day sale!

For my first card, I stamped the blossoms onto a kraft colored cardstock with black ink and spotlighted a few by coloring them with colored pencils. I also spotlighted the word "love" with a punched circle. The word "live" is actually the word "love" in which I didn't ink the "o", then I stamped the "I" in it's place.

My second card is a bit "out of the box". I used one of the leaves in the set to create heart-shaped flowers for my Bleeding Heart image. The background was sponged with a stencil.

The last card I am sharing today has a die cut background. The flowers and leaves were all stamped onto colored cardstock scraps and fussy cut. A simple "thanks" is all that is needed to finish it off!

I love the versatility of these two sets and they pair together so nicely.
Have a great Mother's day!

Refresh My Soul

Hello friends, Stephanie here today with 2 card for you using the new Refresh My Soul Set which I am just so in love with!

For my first card I wanted to make a masculine Birthday card so I colored up this cactus with Copics and used Teeny Alpha and Chunky Alpha to make the words. I added a little heart to the cactus and the paper is from DCWV.  You could finish it off with several sentiments on the inside I am going to use it as a birthday card and the inside reads: "for someone your age" 😁

For my next card I colored up the same cactus, I used one of the sentiments from the set and made the "xoxo" with Teeny Alpha.  I colored with Copics and the paper is from Simple Stories.  Remember we have a free with $75 purchase and this month is is an awesome set called Scripty Thoughts pictured below.

Praying for you

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card I made with the Itty Bitty Blossoms stamp set. I love these little flowers! Maybe you already know it but... I'm a huge fan of flower stamps and I can never get enough of them. So I'm really happy with all these tiny flowers. My first thought was to make a wreath with them, but I decided to share something different with you.

I stamped a bunch of the flowers on marker paper and started coloring. I just colored a couple of flowers and cut them out. After that I masked a part of my card where I wanted to stamp a background with the flowers. I just stamped a couple of the flowers randomly inside the masked area. When I removed my mask I drew a border around the stamped images with a black fineliner. I wanted to keep the card simple so I didn't color these flowers. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set of this month (Scripty Thoughts) and added a little bit of Wink of Stella on top of the sentiment. Just to give it a little bit of sparkle. Then it was time to add the colored flowers. I made a border on the left side with the colored flowers. I added some foam tape behind a couple of the flowers and added a couple of the leaves behind them. I added a couple of sequins to finish the card.

I hope you're inspired to make something with these itty bitty flowers too!
