Autumn Splendor

Good morning! Today I have a sneak peek of the fun new release coming soon at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! This month’s release will be on October 7.

This stamp set is called Autumn Splendor and is perfect for your fall cards! I stamped the leaves on this watercolor paper and then spritzed with water.

Have a great day and on Monday check out all the new stamps in this month’s release!

Spring & Summer catch up

Good morning! The first day of Autumn was earlier this week but I still have some cards I made through Spring & Summer that I haven’t shared. So today is another catch up day!

My first two cards are made with the Spellbinders You’re My Type Card Kit. Love that typewriter die! The background paper here is Melissa Frances- Pink Lady.

The papers on my second one are from My Mind’s Eye- Hello Gorgeous and The Paper Studio- Be Jeweled and Bloom Boutique.

The Mother’s Day card was created with supplies from the SU! April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit. (I added a few extras)

Below I used some Melissa Frances Mixed Media Doodles paper and the Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves die. I also used the SU! Pansy Punch, Well Written Framelits, and Butterfly Duet punch, along with Martha Stewart frond & hydrangea punches.

Here’s a notecard with the SU! Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet punch. I used Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and Botanical Butterfly dsp. (The other color in the butterflies is Grapefruit Grove).

The teapot card used SU! Tea Together stamps and matching dies. The pretty die cut background is a Gina Marie Flourish Open Center BKGD die.

And my last card today also uses Gina Marie dies- Wedding Couple BKGD die and MR & MRS Word die.

And…I’m not finished catching up! Be back soon!

sing!

Good morning! Today I’m sharing some CAS cards with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Sing Loud, Scribble Flowers, and Birthday Greetings. I popped up the cloud on my first card and debated on the sentiment I would choose. I finally decided to simply let it say “sing”!

I kept my second card black & white with a pop of color in the flowers. I love this style! The large flower center has some Stickles.

Have a great day!

Deck the Halls

Hello! Just a quick post to share two Christmas cards using Sweet ‘n Sassy’s new Deck the Halls stamp set. This set is pretty versatile and I love that popcorn string! I stamped the holly inside the bulb on my first card…

For my second card I stamped the bulb onto three patterned papers with foil designs.

The shimmer….

Have a great day!

swap cards

Hello! A few weeks ago I attended a swap with friends. Here are the two cards I took…one was for a masculine swap and the other was my “shoebox” project that I prepared for everyone to make.

The first card was for the masculine swap I participated in. This was semi-cased from a card by Tina Wardell. The background was masked and sponged. After stamping the boat from the SU! Sailing Home set, I colored it in with a black Sharpie. I also used the High Tide set and the sentiment is from Wonderful Moments. The embossing folder is Darice- Nautical Theme.

For my shoebox project, I used a freebie stamp set from MFT- Jumping Giraffe. I knew I wanted to mount him on an Ai Mini Action Wobble to make him “jump”! I also used the Die-Namics Blueprints 20 and 31 die sets. Since the giraffe was a bit smaller than the action wobble, I first placed him on a orange circle cut with a Spellbinders Pinking Circles die.

Have a great day!

Warmth of Christmas

Hey… we’re already a few days into September! That means fall is just around the corner AND there’s a fun new release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! In the crafting industry, September is also quite often the month companies are gearing up for Christmas so you have plenty of time to get your holiday cards and projects done. So today I’m sharing 2 cards with the Warmth of Christmas stamp set from this month’s release. On my second card, I also used Puppy Love.

The black color of these silhouette images caught my eye on the stamp label and so I decided to make my cards with a striking red & black color combo. The wreath was stamped in green, though, to help it stand out.

The fireplace is such a great image and I thought the dog would make this card even more warm & homey. I grabbed a scrap of patterned paper for the buffalo plaid background but here’s a great set to make your own!

Have a great day and go check out all the new stamps in this month’s release!

you warm my heart

Oh my goodness…where has the summer gone? I can’t believe August is almost over and kids are back to school! Sweet ‘n Sassy is gearing up for their September release but before that comes, I have 2 cards to share with some previous sets I love… Cocoa’s Cups and Cheerful Hexies.

I used some scraps of patterned papers on both cards, paper piecing the cup on the first one…

..and making a few hexies on the second card. 3 hexagon patterns were stamped.

Have a great day!
