When I saw this cute Life & Lemons stamp set, I had lots of fun ideas for it. Here’s two CAS cards I made which also use the Sweet & Simple Alpha, God is Bigger, and His Love stamp sets. Need a note of encouragement to send? Here you go…

I also stamped two of the lemons and turned one into a lime for my second card. Draw a simple face on them to give them character!

Have a great day and thanks for hopping!

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!

pawprints on your heart

Last month I needed some pet sympathy cards. I still think sympathy cards are the toughest…they need to be just right, you know? Here’s two CAS cards that I came up with.

I love that the Sweet ‘n Sassy Puppy Love and Kitty Love sets have several images to choose from. So many breeds and personalities to fit the need!

I started with a Park Lane Tree embossing folder. Then I sponged some blue sky, fading it out, and some green for grass. After stamping the dogs, I added some grass from the Through The Trees stamp set.

Thanks for looking!

oh happy day

Hello! Today I have two CAS cards to share using the Sweet ‘n Sassy Happy Day and Spring Blossoms stamp sets.

I used two strips of washi tape on my first card and layered my flowers overtop.

For the second card, I kept it monochromatic with kraft and black. Super simple!

Have a great day!

simple thanks

Hello! Here’s a CAS card when you need something simple, quick, or easily reproducible. I wanted to make a stack of thank you cards and these came together pretty quickly.

I already had the card bases embossed…I found a pile I did years ago with an old Cuttlebug embossing folder but never used. The flower is from Altenew’s Peony Bouquet and the words are from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s So Thankful set. There’s about 6 stampings on each flower but when set up on a MISTI, it goes pretty slick!

Thanks for popping in! Have a great day!

Marquee Caps Alpha

Hello friends! I’m glad you are joining us for the Sweet ‘n Sassy April Release Hop! We’re excited about the new stamps available in the shop this month and now can share some of the projects we’ve been working on with you!

I made two cards for the hop and I used the Marquee Caps Alpha, Cheerful Hexies, and Happy Day stamp sets. I love how this first CAS card turned out!

For my second card, I repeated the hexies with gray ink and then stamped a few with the solid image and black ink. It was punched out with a circle punch and placed in the corner.

Hop along to the blogs linked below for all sorts of paper crafting inspiration with the April stamps. 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. Winner will be announced on the SNSS blog, Tuesday, April 23.

bright & cheery

Good morning! Today I am playing catch up. I have several cards I didn’t get around to sharing from 2018. Some I will post later but here’s a quick share of a few with a bit of info on each.

My first card uses the beautiful Altenew Layered Rose die that was a free sample in a Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a while back. The thanks die is by Echo Park and the Wonky Stitched Ovals die is by Gina Marie. The colors of cardstock I used are black, SU! Coastal Cabana, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple, Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow.

My next card uses the SU! Bird Banter stamp set and the sentiment is from Altenew’s Label Love. The Paper Studio’s Poteeka Birds embossing folder goes great with this set and I love it in the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. A little black branch was added from the SU! Petals & More Thinlits.

This fun flamingo one is a CASE of a card by Amy Koenders using the SU! Fabulous Flamingo set…love it! It uses Flirty Flamingo ink and cardstock of course!

Here’s another card with the Flirty Flamingo ink and cardstock, along with some gold paper and a gold strip of washi tape. This could be for any occasion but it was a congratulations on an engagement card. Stamps are from the SU! July 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit- What a Gem.

The butterfly card was inspired by the talented Kittie Caracciolo. I used SU!’s Watercolor Wings stamp set and Bold Butterfly Framelits. The dies are Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Circles and Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles. I also used the Martha Stewart Frond and Hydrangea punches. The butterfly was stamped with Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Real Red inks.

My daughter was attending a wedding of some motorcycle enthusiasts and asked me to make her a card. This was a clip art image I found online and I just added a simple stamped sentiment.

And my last card is a CAS sympathy card…not a bright card this time but rather done in softer colors. I used a Park Lane Tree embossing folder and Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch. The sentiment is from SU! Love & Sympathy.

Thanks for popping in….have a great day!

hello hexies!

Good morning! Today I am sharing two cards I created using some new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from this month’s release. Here I used Cheerful Hexies and the April Stamp of the Month, Happy Day.

First I created a CAS card with the hexagons and stamped the solid images in pink and yellow. I stamped the flowers right over top but they seemed a bit too busy. The flowers were then stamped again onto scrap paper and I popped them up. This looks much better!

Next I pulled out some patterned papers and stamped one of the outline images on them with black ink. I also used the plaid patterned image to stamp a few. The butterfly from Happy Day was also stamped on a scrap of patterned paper and cut out. This is a great way to use up some of your scraps!

Have a great day!

you are lovely

Good morning! Today I am sharing a CAS card I created using the Sweet ‘n Sassy Genuine Love stamp set from this month’s release. This one will definitely be one of my all time favorites… it’s so versatile and pretty! My sentiment is from His Love.

I realized that I didn’t use any black ink here. I need to do that more often! I like the softness of the sentiment in a light gray. This card is very easy and was even easier with the use of a MISTI. I just stamped each flower and leaf, then turned the paper 180 degrees and stamped again.

Have a great day!

SNSS March blog hop

Hello friends! I’m glad you are joining us for the Sweet ‘n Sassy March 2019 Release After Party Blog Hop! This month SNSS has released a wonderful collection of spring and Easter themed sets. We love them ALL and wanted to share a little papercrafting inspiration with you. Please be sure to visit all of the blogs below for some fabulous eye candy and then leave a comment at every stop along the way for a chance to win. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a gift voucher to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps shop! What’s not to love about free stamps??? We’ll announce the winner next week, so let’s get hopping.

I created a CAS (clean & simple) card for the hop with a kraft colored card base…

First I used some post-it notes to mask off the right side of the card front. I used a fine black marker to draw a line along the edge. Next I chose some coordinating colors of ink that I thought might work ok to stamp onto the kraft colored base. I used the awesome heart and flowers from the SNSS Genuine Love set from this month’s release and stamped them on the lower right corner. Then I added my saying with stamps from SNSS’s His Love set. I finished with a few enamel dots.

This is a very easy, soft-colored card and it would have a different, striking look if you simply switched it up with white cardstock and bold colors!

Here’s the link list for the hop…
