delightful daisies

Hello! Here’s a card I made with a Sweet ‘n Sassy set that was released in April, Delightful Daisies. Blue daisies? Why not?

Several colors of blue were used on the flower and I purposely used the edge of a darker blue inkpad to create some texture on the petals. The center of the flower was used to make polka dots!

Don’t forget there’s only a week left to get the June Stamp of the Month: Happy Irises for free!

Have a great day!

count it all joy

Good morning! There’s a fun release this month at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! Today I’m sharing two projects with the new Life & Lemons stamp set. I also used a few images from Mer-mazing. AND…. for a limited time, when you order Life & Lemons, you will also receive the Squeeze the Day printable for FREE! It will be emailed to you separately once your order is completed.

For my first card, I cut away half of the card front. The lemon slice was stamped in various colors for lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit.

The jar and part of the sentiment are actually on the inside.

Next I stamped some images from both of the lemon and mermaid sets on the background. I tried to keep them on the lighter side so the words would show better.

The jar and flower were popped with foam dimensionals.

I “squeezed” in another card quick with the FREE printable! 🙂 I put the images together in Photoshop but you could resize them in a Word document, print them out, cut and layer.

Have a great day!

Ai on HSN

Hello! Long post today with lots of pics. I’m just popping in today to share some cards I made for Art Impressions’ big debut airing on HSN! Tune in now…or if you haven’t seen the show this morning, check out the website for the great bundles that are being offered!

I made 2 cards for each of the Circlet TryFolds in the bundle, the Cabin and the Lighthouse. First, I made an Acetate Tent Card with the Lighthouse set.

From the front, you can see through the image on the acetate panel to the images on the inside.

Here’s a photo with a side view to show how the card was put together. The acetate is adhered to the top and bottom flaps which were first die cut with some cloud borders. I started with 4 1/4″ x 10 1/4″ and scored @ 1 3/4, 7 1/4, 8 1/4 and 9 1/4. The circle images were adhered before the top of the acetate was attached. Note: I die cut and punched the circle sentiment from the back image and brought it to the front of the card!

The sentiment circle was popped up with diecut foam sheet.

I am a bit hooked on this style of card right now…so cute!

My second Lighthouse card was done in a traditional trifold style. I started with 4 3/4 x 11 and scored each end @ 3 5/8″. I love the dark pink and navy color combo!

The first fold opened…

…and the second fold opened, which reveals the image inside that you could peek through and see from the front.

The first Cabin card I made was similar to this Lighthouse card I made last year.

My blue card base is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2. The 6 1/2″ side is scored at 2 1/4. My white card insert is 5 1/4 x 8, scored @ 4″. The patterned paper layers are 2 x 5 1/4 (front), 3/4 x 5 1/4 (middle), and 3 3/4 x 5 (inside back).

This is another fun card design to use with the Tryfolds!

For my last card, I wanted to show how you can use the images to make a simple card without the trifold designs. Here I used just the inside image with the deer and layered it onto the card front.

Now go check out Bonnie and Kate in their HSN debut!

Have a great Tuesday and… happy stamping!

Mer-mazing card and gift bag

Good morning! If you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a FUN new release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! Today I’m sharing two projects with the adorable Mer-mazing stamp set by SNSS’s newest illustrator, Jenn Nilsson.

First, I made an acetate tent card with the sweet mermaid and sea gull. I started with a 4 1/4 x 10 1/4 piece of cardstock and scored it @ 1 3/4, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, and 9 1/4. Mountain fold all scored lines except the 8 1/4 score which is Valley folded. I die cut some waves on the top & bottom sections of the front and then a piece of clear acetate was attached to them.

I added some blingy stickers to the acetate for bubbles, the center of the flower in her hair, and even placed one for a belly button. lol.

I love to decorate gift bags but don’t do it often enough! So I thought the little mermaid would be a cute way to dress up this plain chevron bag.

I gave her some fun hair color this time and popped her up on some banner die cuts. (I even made a small dent in the eyelets still in my stash!)

Have a great day!

sweet of you

Hello! Here’s a card I made with an older Sweet ‘n Sassy set, Sweet as Honey. Like many SNSS sets, this one is great for both card making and bible journaling. It’s a pretty simple one…I stamped the words and honeycomb onto the background paper. Then I layered some more papers on and stamped/popped up the bee.

Don’t forget there’s only a few days left to get the May Stamp of the Month: Peony Cluster for free!

Have a great evening!

peony with love

Hello! Today I am sharing another card using some new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from this month’s release. Here I used the May Stamp of the Month: Peony Cluster…such a pretty set!

I stamped the flowers tone on tone with some pink ink and paper for the background. Then I stamped the flowers again with black on white cardstock for a striking border layer. Then one flower in the image was colored and cut from a third stamping to add as a focal image. I also cut the card base a bit narrower to a 4″ width to allow the leaves to hang off the edge on the left. This way, it will still fit an A2 envelope!

Head to the Sweet ‘n Sassy store to find all sorts of great images and if you spend $75, you’ll get this beautiful set for FREE! 🙂

Have a great day!

paw-some pals

Good morning! Today I am sharing two cards using some new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from this month’s release. Here I used Paw-some Pals. There’s seven cats and dogs in this set to choose from! I picked three for my first card and stacked them up!

For my second card I thought it would be fun to paper piece them. I don’t think I can pick a favorite. lol. I added the bow to one for a bow tie and added the bone to the sentiment.

Have a great day!

SNSS May Release Hop

Hello friends! I’m glad you are joining us for the Sweet ‘n Sassy May Release Hop! We’re excited about the new stamps available in the shop this month and want to share the projects we’ve been working on with you! Hop along to the blogs linked below for all sorts of papercrafting inspiration! Plus, there’s a GIVEAWAY! Leave a little comment love on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps shop.

I made two cards to share using the new sets Freedom in Christ and Paw-some Pals. I also used two previous sets with awesome sentiments, Scripty Thoughts and Be Encouraged 2. My first card combines the two new sets. Is it coincidence that there’s a cat and a birdcage in the same release? I think not. lol.

I used a paint chip to stamp the birdcage on for my second card and paired it with an encouraging sentiment.

Now go check out Jane’s blog!
