Let's Get Sentimental

Hello sweet friends!  There are many reasons to love Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...one of those reasons is the sentiments.  Many of the stamp sets are just chock full of wonderful sentiments and scripture verses.  After watching a recent video featuring Jennifer McGuire, I decided to play around with the sentiments from several stamp sets.  The sentiments were arranged on my Misti Tool so I was able to create LOTS of backgrounds from which to create cards.  Here are a few of them...

The sentiments were stamped in green ink on a white piece of Neenah card stock and white embossed on some green card stock.  A Pretty Potted Floral was fussy cut and popped on top of one of the highlighted sentiments.

Here the same sentiments were white embossed on pink card stock and one of the flowers from the Floral Greetings stamp set was randomly stamped in pink on white card stock.  The butterflies were colored with Copics, fussy cut and added to the card.  One of the sentiments was over-stamped in gray ink.

Finally, on this card, the sentiments were stamped in pink ink on a white panel and the edges sponged.  A triangular water colored panel was stitched to the sentiments.  The beautiful peony from the newly released Peaceful Peonies stamp set was colored with Copic Markers and a white embossed sentiment from the same set was added along with a few silver pearls and a metallic thread bow.

I still have many more backgrounds to play with...what a time saver!
The sentiment stamp sets used to create these cards were God Is Bigger, Truth Quotes 1, and Keep in Touch, Too.  Take a look at the pretty floral sets used: 

Be sure to check out these sets and more at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you were inspired to give this technique a try.
