'Tis So Sweet

Hello sweet friends!  Hope you had a wonderful week and are ready to enjoy the weekend!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today using stamps that are now back in stock at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.

This Hymn Block coordinate beautifully with the Sweet as Honey stamp set.  After sponging distress inks on a glossy card stock panel and stamping the honeycomb from the Sweet as Honey stamp set, a little sanding in both directions helped to create a faux linen look.  Some Long Stem Silhouettes were stamped in the corner and square aperture was cut from the panel with a square die.  A frame was created and this panel was popped over another faux linen piece on which words from the time-loved hymn, 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus, was stamped.  The Honey Bee was stamped, colored, fussy cut and popped onto the card.

Have you ever had a loss of Mojo.  I've found that inspiration can come from almost anywhere if you just look around.  This next card was inspired by my shower curtain!

The stripes along the right side were stenciled while the flower from Mason Jar Bouquet was stamped several times and fussy cut.  These were mounted to a black panel in a way that resembled my shower curtain.  They were then embossed with a canvas impression plate to create the texture of fabric.  The sentiment was white embossed on a black fussy cut banner....No Coloring and very easy to make!

These stamp sets from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store were used to create the cards above:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Take a look around...what can you find to inspire some creativity?
Happy stamping until next time!
