puddle jumpers

Good morning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today I have two cards using another new set from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps March release. This one is called Puddle Jumpers… it’s perfect for the Spring weather that finally arrived!

Product link: Puddle Jumpers

I cut the little girl out and placed her on a tag for my first card. She is also cute with the puddle underneath her, but my tag wasn’t tall enough for both. I did find some little raindrop gems to add to the card!

I did a little experimenting on my second card. There’s a really cute puddle image in the set but I wanted to see if the cloud would work as a puddle too (minus the splashes). I should have stamped it a bit lower, but I think it worked ok. How cuuute is the tiny paper boat? ♥

Have a great day!

more recent cards

Good morning! This is a very image heavy post today but I have quite a few cards to share. Thanks for sticking with me! I’ll try to keep the text short. 🙂

The first card uses the Art Impressions 5319- Birthday Set5317- MB Template Dies5318- MB Envelope Dies5323- MB Wall Accessories, and 5324- MB Cat Accessories. I made this one a few months ago and overlooked it in my files. These are so fun to create and fold up so tiny!

My second card was made in support of Ukraine and was given to someone who has family in shelter there. Praying for everyone in this horrible situation. I used SNSS Beautiful Bouquets Bundle, SNSS Script Background, Sunny Studio Frilly Frames- Lattice, and SU! Stitched So Sweetly dies.

A masculine birthday card using Sizzix Circuit embossing folder and MFT Block Happy Birthday die. The small sentiment is Sweet ‘n Sassy Birthday Wordfetti.

I made a set of CAS thank you cards for a friend who’s father passed away. SU! Punch Party, Trio of Tags Dies, and Evergreen Forest embossing folder.

The next two cards use SU! Forever Fern, The Paper Studio- Eucalyptus paper, MFT Stitched Basic Edges and Scalloped Stitched Basic Edges, and Sizzix Layered Ovals. Colors- Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, Certainly Celery, Blue Bayou, Soft Seafoam.

A special card for a birthday girl! MFT Friendly Unicorns & Dies, Color Blast Die, and Grassy Hills Die, Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders, Sweet ‘n Sassy Birthday Wordfetti and Puffy Clouds Stencil.

I made a cute gnome shadow box card with Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Dies, and MFT Hanging With My Gnomies.

Next is two cards with SU! Hand-Penned Petals and Hand-Penned Memories & More cards & envelopes. I also used the SU! Stitched So Sweetly Dies. On the first card I also used a sentiment from SU! Friendly Hello and SSS Stitched Circles Dies. On the second card I also used SU! Here’s A Card, SU! Brick & Mortar embossing folder, and Gina Marie Stitched Rectangles. It was semi-cased from Elizabeth Price (Seeing Inkspots).

Simple black & white versions of a card using word dies… Hero Arts- Hello There stamp & die set.

I went with blue and browns for my bee card… SU! Honeybee Home, SU! Hive embossing folder, and circle punches.

A few alternates from the SU! January 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit. The embossed hearts are from an old Cuttlebug Love Language embossing folder. These were scored to change them from a trifold card to a gatefold. I love shaped cards!

Altenew is known for their florals and the Simple Beauty set was used here to make some sympathy cards. The diecut edge is from MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges 2.

I am late getting a start on this year’s Christmas cards but I squeaked out a few with the TH Snarky Christmas Cat set.

Another masculine birthday card. These are harder for me! SU! Snowfront used here with some woodgrain paper.

And lastly, some diecut birthday cards using Sweet ‘n Sassy Sweet Treats Stamp & Die Bundle, Sizzix Happy Birthday Drop-Ins Card Dies, Lawn Fawn Double sided adhesive sheets, and a bunch of 1/2″ cardstock strips!

Thanks for scrolling this far and have a great day!

a sheet of sympathy

Hello! I recently made a few sympathy cards with a little spin off from the OSW (One Sheet Wonders). A lady (Connie Trubey) has been making a lot of variations of these and she inspired me to re-visit the OSWs and try it her way. I can’t wait to make more!

Product links: Forever LovedSpread Your Wings Stamp & Die Bundle, and Leaf Branch Stencil. Spread Your Wings is also available separately… Stamp set and Die Set. Forever Loved also has Dies and is available in a Bundle.

I stamped a full sheet, 8 1/2 x 11, of cardstock and then cut it into four A2 size panels, trimming slightly to allow for layers. This creates four cards in a quick and easy way.

Here’s how I stamped the sheet. I didn’t have good lighting for this photo before it was cut but you can see how it was done. I didn’t worry about getting anything perfect and just “winged” it.

Tip: I VERY LIGHTLY scored the sheet halfway in both directions as a little guide to get started. You will be cutting on these lines later so they won’t show in the final card.

Supplies for making the background…

Have a great day!

spread your wings

Hello, friends!  Today I have two cards for the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps March release. I could feel spring trying to come today and I don’t know about you, but I am ready for butterflies and flowers! This new butterfly set is called Spread Your Wings. I also used a new Leaf Branch Stencil and the previously released Script Background.

Product links: Spread Your Wings Stamp & Die Bundle, Leaf Branch Stencil, and Script Background. Spread Your Wings is also available separately… Stamp set and Die Set.

I love the blue & purple color combo in my first card. I brushed the stencil with the same shade of blue and stamped the script in a light gray. The measurements of the panels are: white- 2 x 3 3/4 and two 1 x 3 3/4, purple mats- 2 1/8 x 3 7/8, and two 1 1/8 x 3 7/8.

My second card is CAS. I decided to make a rainbow of butterflies and popped them all up with foam dimensionals. It still looked like it needed a bit of something so I threw on a few scattered rhinestones.

Have a great day!

more beautiful bouquets

Hello!  Today I have two more cards with the Beautiful Bouquets set from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps‘ February release. I also used the new Flower Bunch Background and some previous sets, Script Sentiments and Alleluia Lilies Dies.

Product links: Beautiful Bouquets Stamp SetBeautiful Bouquets DiesBeautiful Bouquets Bundle, Flower Bunch Background, Script Sentiments, Alleluia Lilies Dies.

The white and vellum diecut leaves tucked behind a layer on the first card are from the Alleluia Lilies Dies. The card was kept in blues except for the colored leaves.

I smooshed and spritzed some inks and picked up the color directly with the cardstock for the second card. When I stamped the flower background, I got a smudge of ink on the panel. Instead of throwing it all in the trash, I switched gears and changed my card design. A window was cut in the panel to eliminate the smudge, then I layered my flower image behind it.

Have a great day!

latte love

Hello! Do you have your valentines ready? It’s just around the corner and these two cards are fitting for both Valentine’s Day or any occasion for coffee lovers.

Product links: Latte Love, Latte Love Dies, Latte Love Bundle, Hugs & Kisses Stencil.

I don’t have the Latte Love Dies (yet!) so I fussy cut the cups. They are super quick and easy to color. The first card follows MojoSketch544.

Have a great day!

beautiful bouquets

Hello, friends!  Today I have two cards for the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps‘ February release. This new set is called Beautiful Bouquets and it sure lives up to it’s name! This is a large set which includes five Bouquet images and several pretty sentiments to cover many occasions.

Product links: Beautiful Bouquets Stamp Set, Beautiful Bouquets Dies, Beautiful Bouquets Bundle, Hugs & Kisses Stencil.

When I finished coloring the first image, I wanted this large Bouquet to really stand out. I kept the card CAS with white-on-white layers. The slash-stitched layer is popped with foam tape.

Have you read the children’s book, Elmer? I have to say that is what I thought of when I stamped the second vase. LOL! It’s a cute story. I stuck with only three colors, though, for my “patchwork” kettle vase. 🙂 Most of the first layered panel got covered but I used the new Hugs & Kisses Stencil for those X’s and O’s in the background!

Have a great day!

knit together

Hello. I have two last cards today for the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps‘ January release. I used the new set, Knit Together, to create some CAS cards. I also stamped a tiny heart from Count Your Rainbows on the first card. The knitting needles and yarn were stamped with two colors of ink that blended to get the color I wanted. This would be a perfect valentine for a knitter! XOXO

On my second card, I stamped the sentiment and heart of yarn together, using two ink cubes to mimic variegated yarn. The sentiment is from Cheerful Hexies.

Have a great day!

sparkle & shine

Good morning! I’m on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog today with two more cards for the January release. Today I used Sparkle & Shine, Sweater Weather, Warm Winter Friends, and my own set, Snowy Hello, which has returned and is now available with dies! Dies are also available separately if you previously purchased the set.

I created my own background for the first card and die cut some circles to make it a little whimsical. The sweater was paper pieced, and I stamped the words on the front.

I couldn’t just toss the partial circle that I cut from the background, so I added it to my second card, along with a few more circles. I love that the Snowy Hello set now has Dies!

To make the background, I first smooshed some Distress inks onto my work surface. Then the ink was spritzed with water and I laid the cardstock on top. Repeat several times and dry as needed. When finished and dry, I stamped the flakes over top.

Have a great day!

bundle up, buttercup!

Today I have two cards to share using the new Sweater Weather set from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps January release. On the first card I also used the new Knit Stencil.

Isn’t the sentiment cute? If you aren’t familiar with it, “Buttercup” is an old-fashioned endearment meaning “sweetheart” or “dear”. Today I think it might mean “cutie”. I stamped the sweater on the same “stitched” background paper that was placed on the bottom. The top of the card base was stenciled with the knit stencil.

One of the design team, Andrea Wood, used a head from Girl Power with the sweater image so I thought it would be fun to try one with the scarf. I kept her head lower when I masked it so her face would be partly covered. I also selectively colored only the scarf.

You can see in the photos below how I stamped on the post-it note and cut out the top of the scarf to do the masking. I stamped the scarf first, then the head.

Have a great day…bundle up and stay warm!
