Happy Place

Hello friends!  Here it is August already!  Where is the summer going?  Cathy here with two mixed media cards to share.  As you may have heard by now, the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store has relocated to Georgia, so this first card is in honor of SNSS's happy new home!   

Different colors of Distress Oxide inks were watered down on a craft mat, picked up on the edge of an old credit card, and swiped onto Bristol card stock.  Acrylic paint was used to add black and white lines with the edge of a credit card and white splatters.  The Typewriter Text Background was inked up with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and lightly stamped randomly over the background.  The flowers from the Happy Place stamp set were embossed on another panel and watercolored using the same colors on the background.  The sentiment was white embossed on a black strip.  

I just love daisies...they are such happy flowers, so I reached for another daisy from the Scribble Flowers stamp set for my second card.

The coordinating Scribble Flower Die (currently out of stock) was used to cut the daisy from mixed media paper.  The daisy was then stamped again on another panel through the opening and both flowers were colored with Copic Markers.  Distress Oxide inks were sponged around the opening and a sentiment from Happy Place was stamped.  Texture Paste was spread through a honeycomb stencil around the opening and the sentiment before popping up the second flower and those adorable bees.  A bow and some tiny bling were added to finish the card.

Just a reminder for those who have recently placed orders from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store, shipping will resume this Friday, August 4th, so be on the lookout for your happy mail!
Thank you for your patience while we moved!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a happy day!
