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.

Thanks for hopping! Have a great day!

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…

Thanks for hopping with me! Have a great day!

genuine love

Good morning! Today I have 2 cards to share with a super cute set from this month’s Sweet ‘n Sassy release. Here I used Genuine Love… a must have!

On my first card I also used His Love and a butterfly from Made New (last month’s free set) which can now be purchased! To start, I cut a circle out of a post-it note and threw the circle away. I used the negative part to place around my stamped words as a guide. Then I stamped the wreath inside of my masked circle. I cut the blue flower from the heart image in His Love.

I made another “wreath” around the words on my other card too. This time I started with the arrow image, bending it on the clear block to make it curved.

Have a great day!

butterfly hellos

Hello! I have two CAS cards to share today using the Sweet ‘n Sassy February Stamp of the Month: Made New. I also used Happy Alpha and Scribble Flowers. This is a great butterfly set!

Before I get to the cards, I have a special code to share with you…

Now, here I diecut a triple window die in the front of my first card to showcase the butterflies and stamp a simple “hi”.

On my second card I stamped “hello” with the alpha set. I kept the elements CAS by stamping the butterfly and flowers with black ink onto colored cardstock.

Have a great day!

love you

Good morning! I think I have made more valentine cards this year than any other. But what’s not to love about valentine cards, right? Today I have two more to share using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.

On my first card I used the new Forever & Always set. I also used How Tweet. I drew the little thought bubbles with a black pen and kept it a CAS card in black & white so the colored heart would pop.

For the second card, I used the same Forever & Always set and also used Texture Tiles 1. The background hearts are more of a peachy-pink color. The flourish heart is so pretty! I popped it up with foam dots.

Have a great day!

crazy about snowmen

Good morning! In November Sweet ‘n Sassy released a stamp set with a combination of several previous snowman images called Crazy About Snowmen. Today I have two CAS cards using this fun set and I also used the cute Heart Candy stamp set.

There are a few pretty snowflakes in this set too!

Maybe you can’t buy the heart candy to eat this year but you sure can stamp them!

Have a great day!

filigree hearts

Hello! I have two more Valentine cards to share today using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps. Here I used the new Filigree Hearts. I also used the In Stitches Alpha and Llama Love.

I cut out the stamped alpha and combined it with the hearts on the first card.

And I paired a llama with a heart on the second one. Love those llamas!

Have a great day!
