Teacup Roses

Hello Sweet Friends!  It's Sheri here today sharing a card featuring the NEWLY released Teacup Roses stamp set.  Have you ever challenged yourself to create a second card using similar supplies when you love how a card turns out or before cleaning up?  Well I did that with this weeks card.  I fell in love with the colors in the pattern paper that I had found in my stash and thought the kraft was perfect for coffee/tea themed cards.  To change things up a bit I created a 5" Square card instead of my go to A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card size.  I also did a little paper piecing on the cup to tie end the pattern papers. 

Here's the original card I created.

As you will notice I also didn't use a sentiment on my retake...I did this on purpose.  This allows you to use the card for any occasion that it may fit or you may need.

Don't forget that the Texture Tiles 3 stamp set is the July 2018 Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 order (after all discounts and before shipping & tax) through 7/31/18


 Happy Stamping!

God Is For You....

{jane bosi} Words of truth and wisdom right here, folks--coming straight at you from me and Sweet 'N Sassy stamps.  In this big world full of stress and strain the only thing, in my fifty--YES, you read that correctly--years that I hold to be true without a doubt is that God is for you.  He's for me, too.  I get lost and stressed and overwhelmed and sometimes forget where to put my eyes, but He's always there.  Patient, waiting, there.  It works like that for you too--a week, a year, ten years....a life time of looking away, He is still there.  Waiting, wanting, loving. 

This super cute and colorful card features Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps new July release, Go God's Way.  I literally gasped out loud when I first saw this set designed by Diane Noble:

So much fun to be had with these great images!!  It also pairs great with the God is for You set--which I used for the sentiment.  Endless possibilities.

Have a great day being awesome!  Jane

So blessed....

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy friends, Stephanie here today with a card made using Go God's Way, I just love this set but I especially love the bike.  I stamped the bike onto designer paper and loved how it looked so I decided it didn't need to be colored.  The sentiment is from Thoughtful Words that has so many wonderful combinations.  Make sure you check out this month's stamp of the month-Texture Tiles 3  which is free with $75 purchase and also check out the Deals and Discount section- so many great bargains.  I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!

Teacups and Roses....

{jane bosi}  Hello, Sweet Friends!  Today I am sharing a few cards which feature the new Teacup Roses stamp set.  This is such a fun image to color and makes the sweetest cards of encouragement, thanks, birthday and so much more!

My first card also features a bible page.  I love to pick up aged bibles at thrift stores to use in my art.  They make great backgrounds as well as come in quite handy for mixed media canvas art.
For my second card, I used a piece of fabric for my color inspiration and background.  I even pulled out my sewing machine for this one!  This set is just so versatile!!  The color combos are endless; a must have set it you ask me!  I love it!

Have a great day being awesome!  Jane

go with faith, grace, boldness

Good morning!
Earlier this year I made a 4" coaster for the magnetic frame that hangs by my desk and I planned to make a few more to switch out once in a while. All the tiles I have for my frame are square or round coasters and this time I wanted to try a 4x4 canvas panel.
For my canvas, I used Go God’s Way and Life in Jesus from the new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps July Release. I also used Go With, Texture Tiles 1, and the Girl Power Printable.

The background was done with a spritz of water added to acrylic paints. Then the words and bike were stamped with Archival Black and some texture was stamped on the grass with Archival Chartreuse. I colored with Inktense pencils and water with a brush. Normally the Inktense pencils would be permanent after wetting them but they were still workable since they were applied over acrylics so I sprayed the canvas with Krylon Workable Fixatif. Next I adhered the printed girl and covered the whole piece with decoupage glue. Some paper flowers were added last. It was fun creating on the canvas surface...I'll be doing more of these for sure.
Here are 2 cards that I will also share using Go God’s Way and Go With. They pair so well together!
I kept the first card CAS and I love how it came together in simplicity.

A sweet friend of mine has a pink “bug” and a heart that follows the Lord so I made my second card in her honor.

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday!

I'm always struggling with male cards. It's hard to find stamps and images that are suitable for a man. But when I saw the car from the new 'Go Gods Way' set I knew it would be great for a male card. So this is the first card I made with the set.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and made a couple of mountains with a fineliner. I colored the image with watercolor markers and die cut the panel. I wanted to make a birthday card and I love the lettering from the 'Spring Blossoms' set so I decided to use it for this card. I adhered the panel with foam tape on a fun patterned paper and added everything on a kraft colored card.
I used the stamp sets Spring Blossoms and Go God's Way.

Go With God!

Are you enjoying the new printable/devotional combos from Sweet N Sassy as much as I am? This month the Go God's Way Printable Bundle with Devotional reminds us to go where God leads us and it is fabulous! While the set is fun for Bible Journaling, I LOVE the outlines because I LOVE coloring - it is so relaxing!

Today I created 2 scenes with the outline elements. The sentiment in the set is really powerful and it felt like a fit for my cards so I typed it up and used it for both of them.

The first card uses the sitting lady and the stack of suitcases.

 The second one used the bicycle - which I put on a sidewalk.

Both of these cards are clean and simple but I really love them! I hope this inspires you to create a scene of your own!

Choose Happy

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers!
It's Ceal here to share a couple cards with you using one of the newest releases,  Go God's Way which is a from our Creative Worship line. The first card I paired it up with the set So Happy because to me this bicycle just looks like it would make a someone choose to be happy and go for a bike ride. 

To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a Coastal Cabana panel cut down with a postage stamp die and a watercolor paper panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the bicycle image using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and watercolored it using Daniel Smith watercolors.

My second card also used the Go God's Way set but this time I had a little fun with it and paired it up with Thoughtful Words Set. I am going to a stamping retreat, Junkiefest in a couple weeks so I had a little fun by penciling in the signs and I am definitely counting the days, it's going to be so much fun seeing friends again and making new friends.

Go God's Way

Hello SWEET Friends! It's Monika here today. I have couple of cards using the new Creative Worship: Go God's Way clear stamp set.

 I turned my first card into a shaker card... I had this picture in my mind with a circle window opening, and that is a perfect set up for a shaker! You just need lots of dimensional foam tape (or fun foam), a window sheet, and lots of sequins and micro beads.

The camper and the 'bug' were stamped on water color paper and colored with Kuretake Gansai Tombi water colors. The circle background was sponged with yellow, orange and red distress inks. The landscape images (desert scene and grass) are from Landscape Silhouettes clear stamp set. The greeting is from another favorite sentiment set, Keep in Touch, Too. It's a must have!

My second card is a simple birthday card. The word images are from So Happy clear stamp set. I already had the sponged background laying around on my craft table, so I went with it. The butterflies are punched out of vellum.

Thank you for stopping by,

Rolling Along

Hello friends!  I hope you have been enjoying all of the beautiful samples the Creative Team has been posting using the new July Release.  I have two cards to share today using the new Go God's Way stamp set designed by Diane Noble.  This set is wonderful for Bible Journaling and card making.

A scene was sponged using Distress Inks and the bicycle from Go God's Way was stamped and colored with Copic Markers.  Flowers from Itty Bitty Blossoms were added and the center of the scene was cut with a rectangles die, matted with black card stock and popped back into the scene.  Clouds, a fence and a grass border were added to finish the card.  The sentiment is from the God is Bigger stamp set.

My second card features the camper and the car from the Go God's Way stamp set.

The background scene was again created with Distress Inks and one of the textures from the Texture Tiles 3 set.  The images from Go God's Way and Refresh My Soul were colored with Copic Markers, cut out and popped onto the card.  The sentiment was made from the Scripty Thoughts set and the Mini Grunge Type Alpha.

These new stamp sets are now available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.
Texture Tiles 3 is the Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 purchase until the end of the month.

This is the way we roll....thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
