Texture Tiles 6

Good morning! Today I am sharing two cards using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Texture Tiles 6 and the fun, new Summer Vibes Stamp & Die Bundle (also available separately).

For my first card, I also used the Paint Splatters Stencil on the background with one of the Texture Tiles. The card front was scored at 1 1/4″ from the fold on the left and that section was glued together. I found some old fibers and trim in my stash to tie on. The flip flops were die cut and popped with foam tape.

I stamped a colorful background on my second card with another Texture Tile and then simply stamped the images on top in black ink.

Have a great day…stay cool!

Christmas in July sale!

Hello! There’s a Christmas in July SALE going on in the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps shop! There’s 25% off all Christmas and Winter stamp sets and digital images until tomorrow, July 26. I have a few cards to share using some of my favorite Christmas sets… Christmas Pine and Old-Fashioned Christmas. First, I used a bit of masking and ink blending to create a CAS card.

Next, I used the pine images for a simple swag with a tag and a bit of gold washi tape strip.

For my last card, I stamped a few branches around the edges. Then I stamped the main image in red and embossed it to give it a little texture. I had an idea to punch some gold circles with a regular hole punch and add them to the card for a some-what bokah feel. Then I added a gold punched bow.

Have a great day!

thank you

Good morning! Today I am sharing two cards using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Stamp of the Month, Thank You. I also used the fun, new Summer Vibes Stamp & Die Bundle (also available separately).

For my first card, I cut part of the card front off diagonally, then added a strip of black to the edge. The patterned paper was added to the inside. I stamped the pineapple, inking it with various colors, and then masked it to add the splatters with the Paint Splatters Stencil. The cherries were stamped, die cut, and popped up with foam tape.

For my second card, I cut various colored strips of cardstock which are 1″ x 3″ and 1 1/4″ x 3″. Then I stamped several of the “thank you” words on each and layered them all onto a black strip and trimmed the sides. A popped up, die cut flower finished the card.

Have a great day…stay cool and dry!

shelter and hugs

Hello! Have you checked out the new SNSS release for July? Today I have some cards with the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps God of Comfort stamp set. It is in the Creative Worship line but can be used for bible journaling, card making, and many other creative ways. Here I made two cards and paired the images with some patterned papers that seemed to coordinate.

On my second card, I planned to just use the partial die cut circle with the image but then decided to “fill the rest in” with a piece die cut in black.

Have a great day and stay cool. It’s another hot one!

summer vibes

Good morning! I can’t believe that it’s July already, although it has been a scorcher here the past few days! The beginning of a new month means there’s a great new release at SNSS! Today I am sharing a few cards using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Summer Vibes Stamp & Die Bundle (also available separately). For my first card, I also used Fern Background and Scribble Flowers with matching Dies (also in a bundle). I started by stamping the ferns around the outside edges. Then I stamped a few images in the center and cut/layered a few images on top.

For my second card, I heat embossed the flower on the top & left of the card front with black embossing powder. Then I layered some additional flowers and the sentiment which were embossed with gold. A piece of gold washi tape was added to the bottom.

Have a great day!

bees, trees, & the sea

Hello! I have a few cards to share today using various Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps sets. First up, I made two CAS cards with the Sweet As Honey set. I simply masked the card bases, sponged yellow ink, and stamped the images. They were finished with a few scattered rhinestones.

Next I made a Father’s Day card and a birthday card with the Tender Thoughts stamp set. I also used For My Father and Birthday Wordfetti. I die cut the stamped backgrounds with the Dad Word Die and Birthday Word Die, then popped them up back in place with foam tape (the Eclipse Technique).

For the last cards, I blended some backgrounds with Oxide inks and offset my finished panels. I used The Sea and Bold Birthdays to create these two masculine cards.

Have a great week!

 

 

oh baby

Good morning! I’m back with a few cards for this month’s Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps release. I have several cards today using the Oh Baby Stamp & Die Bundle (also sold separately) and the stamp of the month, Grunge Stripe Background. I also used the Starry Night Stencil and Stars Dies.

For my first card, I started with the Grunge Stripe Background and then turned it 90° and stamped it again to create a plaid. I used the Starry Night Stencil and Stars Dies to coordinate with the stars in the stamp set.

This next card is super fun! I made a bunch for some friends’ birthdays with a butterfly on the front and they loved them. I thought this sweet baby carriage would be super cute too! I found the directions for this fun fold card here.

To open this gate-fold style card, the sides are bent back and the carriage is attached to the center fold. So fun!

For my last card, I was playing around with stamping the onesie image onto several different scraps of patterned paper from the same pad. I had enough stamped and cut to make three baby girl mini slim cards with this simple layout!

Have a great day!

botanical branches

Good morning! Have you seen this month’s Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps release? I have two cards today using the new Botanical Branches stamp set. On the first card I also used the stamp of the month, Grunge Stripe Background. I started by stamping some vertical yellow stripes and then stamped the images in black over top. I wanted to color the berries in with my white pen but it wasn’t working as planned. I stamped the branch again onto white cardstock, cut them out, and adhered them over top.

For my second card, I fussy cut the branches and tied them with a bit of linen thread. I also used the Bitty Hearts Stencil on the background and a thin cardstock circle leftover from a previous project.

Have a great day!

snail village

Good morning! It’s the beginning of June already, which means there’s a great new release at SNSS! Today I am sharing a few cards using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Snail Village Stamp & Die Bundle (also available separately), Botanical Branches, Grunge Stripe Background (the Stamp of the Month!), and the Bitty Hearts Stencil.

I made a soft background for the snail with the new Botanical Branches on my first card. Then I added some colorful, whimsical stripes to go with the “cheerful shello” sentiment. The sentiment was popped with foam tape.

My next two cards are pretty CAS. I used a single stripe from the Grunge Stripe Background here to create a road or path. The snail and balloon are popped up.

I stenciled and sponged the background on the right side of my last card. The mushroom house was cut & layered over top. This is such a cute set!

Have a great day!
