butterflies x4

Good morning! I have FOUR cards to share using the Sweet ‘n Sassy February Stamp of the Month: Made New. These butterflies are so pretty and very versatile. Last week I shared two other cards with them…they’re so fun to use! For my cards today I also used these SNSS stamp sets: Forever & Always, Typewriter Blocks Alpha, Nature Silhouettes, and Long Stem Silhouettes.

I stamped them in lots of colors for my background on the first card, then the black one was popped up with dimensionals.

I colored a rainbow of butterflies on my second card…

For the third card I die cut the top corner and sponged some inks on the layer behind it. Flowers were stamped with the same colors and the butterfly was colored to match.

This last card started out a disaster as I had one mistake after another. I was too stubborn to toss it after all the effort put into it so I kept going. LOL! In the end, I liked it after all. 🙂

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!

The first one uses What A Savior.

The second one uses a retired stamp, His Banner.

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!

hello cupcake!

Last week I received the new Stampin’ Up! Hello Cupcake set (free during SAB) and I was happy last night to find time to make a few cards. I liked this set at first sight but after using it, I LOVE this set! Love the whimsical style so much that I made three cards.

Here’s the first. I added half of a lace doily and some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.

I added the same ribbon to my second card. I was inspired by Bonnie O’Neill to cut half of the front off and use it for the layered panel. I cut the front at 2 3/4″.

The frosting is popped up.

For my third card, I wanted to mask the middle cupcake and add two more. The middle frosting and sentiment are popped up.

heart candy

Good morning! I have a few Valentine cards to share today using the new Sweet ‘n Sassy Heart Candy stamp set. This set is so fun to use and brings back memories of those little boxes of candy! I also used In Stitches Alpha, So Sweet Cocoa, and Punny Love.

My first card is a pop-up box card which folds flat for placing in an envelope.

I added several of the stamped candies plus a few die cut hearts inside.

The word LOVE was stamped with the In Stitches Alpha and added to the back.

My second card is very CAS. I simply stamped the candies and hearts, then drew arms and legs with a black pen.

For my third card, I stamped the hearts and drew lines to “hang” them for decorations. Cocoa Mouse with his valentine cupcake is enjoying the party!

Have a great day!

a few thank you’s

Good morning! I mentioned before that we (our local stampers) had a shoebox event in the beginning of November. We all get together to swap and make each other’s projects….such a fun day! We had several companies that were generous and sent products for door prizes so I wanted to make special thank you cards for each of them. I already shared the card I made for Art Impressions. Here’s the rest of them…

The first one was for Unity Stamp Company, using Lil’ Smartie Pants. Love that bird! I put Crystal Effects on his glasses. I also used the Stitched Arch Stax dies by MFT. The paper is Pebbles- Garden Party.

The next one was for Gina K. , using her fabulous Wreath Builder set. So fun to create with! Her stencil works great the MISTI!

Here’s one for MFT with a retired image that I still love…Because You’re Special from the Pure Innocence line. I also used their Stitched Rectangle Frames and Blueprints 20 dies.

This card was for Paper Smooches. I love the snowy guy from Warm Hearts! It’s fun and easy to create CAS cards with Paper Smooches!

This cutie is called Bunny Balloon (which also may be retired) and was for Whimsy Stamps. I also used MFT’s Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and Taylored Expressions’ grateful die.

Many thanks again to these great sponsors! It truly helped make our event a success!

frog yoga

Hello! Here’s a card I made for a dear friend who loves yoga. And I didn’t realize that she likes frogs too…win! Good thing there’s more frogs and cute sentiments in this set! I used the Stampendous Frog Yoga and the Sizzix Tropicool Slider Card dies to make this interactive card. The happy birthday words are Altenew’s Label Love.

When the top is pulled, the sentiment is revealed…

What a fun set! Have a great day!
