Victory in Jesus

Hi Friends! 

Today I have two projects for you using the new Victory in Jesus set.

I made a CAS card as well as a "everything but the kitchen sink" card.

My first project is a simple watercolor card.

Recipe :
  • Watercolor paper - Strathmore Coldpress
  • Image - Victory in Jesus
  • Ink - Stamped image with Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored it with Inktense watercolor pencils
  • My background paper is cut with a wonky rectangle die
My Second project is a more complex one. I found a mixed media background in my stash. I thought it would be fun to stamp on top of it and color over it with color pencils. It actually worked; however, it was a little busy. To "mute" it, I covered it with embossed vellum and added the sentiment on top.

Recipe:
  • Background - Acrylics Dylusions
  • Background stencils - Tim Holtz
  • Image - Victory in Jesus
  • Ink - Stamped image with Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored it with Polychromos pencils
  • Vellum embossed with Cuttlebug butterfly embossing folder
I hope you are inspired today. See how you can create a variety of projects with a single project and most of all, this should be fun so make it FUN!!

Thanks for stopping by!

scripture crosses


Good morning! Today I have 2 cards to share with a very popular set from this month’s Sweet ‘n Sassy release, Scripture Crosses. This set sold out quickly but you can pre-order now...more are coming! I used the same sentiment image on both cards with various flourishes. I also used flowers from the sweet new Genuine Love stamp set.
 
Here I stamped the cross onto patterned paper. Then I masked it and stamped some flowers "behind" it.
 

I went with different colors for my second card but stamped the cross on patterned paper once again. This time I added flowers to the corners of the main image and popped one up.


There's plenty of time to get your Easter cards done and these sets are perfect to use!
Have a great day!
Diane

Scripture Crosses | Might Have Peace

Hello Sweet Friends!  Sheri here today!  Today I have a card featuring the NEWLY released Scripture Crosses stamp set.

I created a semi CAS (clean and simple) card design.  As you might have noticed I love my layers!  I started by stamping one of the crosses in green dye ink and layering it with coordinating card stock on top of some plaid pattern paper that I found in my stash.  Embellished with some sheer ribbon and rhinestones.  All layers are popped up with foam dots.

Scripture Crosses


Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers! 
It's Ceal, here to share more cards with you featuring our new releases. These two cards use the Scripture Crosses set. This set flew off the shelves and is available for pre order. 


For my first sample (above) I started with a white top folding card base and another panel of white card stock.  I created the rainbow background by blending pink, blue, and yellow with a Life Changing Blending brush.  After I covered the piece of card stock, I stamped the Scripture cross using Versafine Clair ink.


For my second sample (below) I also started with a white top folding card base and a white panel of card stock and a panel of faux wood patterned paper.
I stamped the scripture cross using Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I used the Life Changing Blending Brushes to add the brown.

Genuine Love galore

 Hello! It's Monika here today showcasing Genuine Love clear stamp set. I love flowers, I love grungy... so this sweet stamp set is just perfect for me! 
  
My first card is a sweet feel better card, using most of the flowers from the set to make the border. It's really easy to make, as the images work well stamped over each other and clustered... I used Tim Holtz distress and distress oxide inks. 


The greeting is from Thoughtful Words clear stamp set. It's stamped with VersaMark Ink then it was heat embossed with white embossing powder.


If you know me, you know I LOVE shaker cards! Here is a tulle shaker card! 
Instead of acetate, I used a piece of tulle to hold the sequins inside of the circle. So, so pretty! It's more affordable then some of the fancy window sheets and it's pretty flat. The tulle allows the sequins to move around without having to use dimensional tape.


 The background was stamped with all the tiny images from the set... it's nice that you can use these images in different ways.
The greeting is from Keep in Touch Too clear stamp set.


...and lastly, my card from the March Release After Party Blog Hop (if you missed it, it's not too late to check it out!).


... I love adding little details to my cards... flower clusters and rhinestones! 


On this card, I used Texture Tiles 3 and Made New stamp sets along with Genuine Love.

I hope I have inspired you to craft today!

Thank you for stopping by,
Monika

You Will Rise

Hello friends!  Happy Friday!  Cathy here to share several projects using some of the new stamp sets  from the March release and some other wonderful products from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.


I've been having so much fun with Doodle Florals, the Stamp of the Month which is free with your $75 purchase.  A frame was embossed using a square die.  The outside border was masked and the Doodle Florals stamped inside the frame.  Then a smaller square die was used to cut out the center and only the blooms from this panel were watercolored with distress inks.  The panel was layered onto black card stock and popped back onto the card.  Butterflies from the Made New stamp set were used to create the layered butterfly.  A sentiment from God is Bigger was stamped under the embossed square and twine was tied around the card for a finishing touch.


My second project is a tag that was made with some of the ladies at a local women's shelter to remind them how much God loves them.  The tag was sponged with Memento inks.  


The John 16:33 cross from Scripture Crosses was stamped in white pigment ink.  A little texture from Texture Tiles 1 was randomly stamped around the border of the tag.


One of the women from the Love One Another Printable was added on a doily at the bottom of the tag.  Several Doodle Florals were colored with Copic Markers, cut out and scattered around the tag.  White acrylic paint splatters were added to finish the tag.


We can rise above because no matter what we face in this world, Jesus has overcome the word!

Thanks so much for stopping by...Happy stamping until next time!
Hugs,
Cathy

Both cards are sweet and simple--easy to replicate with just a few supplies.  I used distress inks, some sponging, stitching and a few sequins!  The card above also uses All About You--another versatile set that can be just the right thing for many occasions.

For this post, I'm sharing an almost one layer card I created pairing some previous releases with the new He is Risen and  All in All sets. I started with bristol cardstock, then stamped the crown of thorns from He is Risen in distress ink and used a waterbrush to color it in, using just the stamped ink.


Next I stamped the three sentiment stamps from All in All to read Jesus paid it all. I pulled out some tumbled glass and broken china distress inks and blended all around for the background. Then I stamped tiny portions of the music background from Texture Tiles 1 in pecock feathers all around. I loved how things turned out, b ut felt I needed something in the corner. I decided on one of the hearts from the Filigree Hearts set. I was a little too chicken to commit to stamping it on this background I loved so much, so stamped it separately, then sponged with the same inks and cut out to pop up on the card.


I finished off with a few splatters of frayed burlap ink and some sponging around the edges.

Korin also has a couple of cards to share with you today featuring her Victory in Jesus set.
Have a look...




The next stop on the hop is my blog, Poetic Artistry, where I'm sharing another card and a process video. Before you go, here's a little look-see at the sets included in the NEW release...
