snow much fun

Good morning! Today I have two cards with some more cute snowmen stamps from this month’s release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! This set is called Snow Much Fun.  And if you haven’t checked out SNSS’s birthday sale yet, it’s not too late! This sale runs all month long. No code needed!

I die cut an oval shape from plain copy paper for my first card and used it as a stencil to sponge on a bit of blue. The I stamped the flakes and sentiment and popped the snowman up. There’s a little Stickles that doesn’t show in the photo.

I also popped up the second snowman…this time in front of a die cut window with patterned paper behind it. If you look closely, there’s some subtle red snowflakes stamped on the red cardstock base.

Have a great day!

For today’s hop I used the Folk Art Snowflakes stamp set to create two cards. For my first one I used non-traditional colors, a mustard-y yellow and dark gray. The colors are well suited for the folk art style. This set is so pretty!

Here I used the flakes with a traditional red Christmas color and kept it monochromatic.

Have a great day and thanks for hopping!

aloe there!

Good morning! Today I have 2 cards using the Succulents stamp set from this month’s release. I pulled some matching papers from my stash and used the aloe plant image for my first card. Gotta love a punny sentiment!

For my second card, I masked and stamped several images together.

After stamping, I embossed the panel with a finely textured embossing folder and added a few drops of Stickles.

Have a great day!

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!

fur-ever friends

Good morning! Today I’m sharing some cards with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Fur-ever Friends set. No matter the weather, these sweet critters are sure to get you in a mood for fall. Autumn is just a few days away!

I kept my cards pretty CAS to let these images pop.

The fox is one of my favorites but I love them all.

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!

merci

Hello! Today I’m sharing some cards with the Sweet ‘n Sassy Set Apart stamp set. Both of these cards were super easy to line the arrow stamp up where I wanted it by using my MISTI stamping tool!

On the first card I masked the word “merciful” to stamp “merci”. Masking is a great way to get more use of your stamps! The heart was covered with Stickles and really sparkles.

On my second card, I also used the Baseball Rhubarb digital image.

Enjoy these last few days of August! Where did summer go?

Have a great day!

The Shepherd’s Voice

Good morning! Today I have 2 cards to share using The Shepherd’s Voice stamp set from the new release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. This one was designed for the bible journaling line but can be used for card-making too. I also used the Sweet ‘n Sassy July Stamp of the Month, Sentimental Wordfetti. So many sentiments in there!

For my first card, I started with 5 1/2″ x 11″. It was scored @ 1 1/4, 4, and 6 3/4. The sentiment hangs off the front edge and the main image panel hangs off the center fold.

My second card is CAS. I “stamped” the background using the acrylic block technique. When dry, I simply stamped the images and sentiment over top.

Have a great day!

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!
