Spotlight on Helping Hands

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  This is Cathy again with another project for you here on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog!  My project for today uses the newly released Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp set, "Helping Hands."  Korin has done it again...the sweet image in this set is perfect for coloring using your favorite medium and includes five wonderful sentiments.

Isn't this set just adorable!

I've been noticing so many beautiful cards lately with white embossing on colored card stock, so I decided to use this technique to make note cards with all the wonderful sentiments included in this set.  The image was  embossed with white detail embossing powder on four different colors of card stock, matching my Basic Grey DP.  The image was then stamped again on white card stock with Tuxedo Black ink.  The bird and the mouse in the image were punched out with various sizes of circle punches, colored with Copic Markers, mounted on coordinating pieces of card stock, and popped up on the white embossed image, spotlighting just the cute little helpers on each card. I then made a little card purse that holds all four cards along with matching envelopes.

The directions for this card purse can be found here on this thread at  Splitcoaststampers.  Jodi Collins has pictorial instructions and Beate has a wonderful video with step by step, easy to follow instructions.  All four cards in this set can be seen below.  Thanks for visiting with us today!  I hope you've been inspired by today's project.  Check out this stamp set and the new Rhubarb images at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Until next Tuesday...
