choose joy

Good morning!  I have a card today with stamps from the Sweet ‘n Sassy July Release. Here I used Go God’s Way and Life in Jesus. I also used Serene Silhouettes: Trees to create a little scene with the bike.

The grassy background was masked/sponged and the rest was just stamped and colored. Very easy! The July sets are fun to create with!

Have a great day!

go with grace

Have you seen the new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps July Release? Here are 2 cards using the new set called Go God’s Way (there’s also a matching printable!). I also used an older set, Go With. I think they pair great together!

I kept the first card CAS and I love how it came together in simplicity.

A sweet friend of mine has a pink “bug” and a heart that follows the Lord so I made my second card in her honor. :)

free indeed

Hello! There’s only 2 more days left in June and we are creeping up on the 4th of July holiday so today I am sharing two cards I made earlier this month with a patriotic theme. I used the Free Indeed stamp set from the  Sweet ‘n Sassy June Release. I also used Brotherly Love and Scripty Thoughts on the second card.

After I previously made a card with a camo hat on one of the guys, I decided to make another with a serviceman.

Have a safe 4th!


great guys

Good morning! I am sharing some cards today using a Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp set, Brotherly Love, from the June Release. I also used Girl Power and Bitty Minnie Alpha. I paired the guys and girls on my first card to make a wedding card.

There are a few different hats for the guys in the Brotherly Love set. I turned one into a camo hat on my second card since we have lots of hunters in our family.

These sets are very versatile and although they were designed for bible journaling, you can see they are great for cards too.

Have a great day!

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing my last “official” card for Art Impressions. As of the end of May I took a break and stepped down from the Ai team. You’ll see me posting some cards from time to time, though…I still love Ai!

The current Ai Challenge is “Odd Animals” and we are featuring the NEW Funny Farm Release! This is such a fun line. Here I used 5002- Sloth-some Set.

Good morning! I am sharing some cards today using new Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the June Release. Here I used Be A Flamingo and Scripty Thoughts (from the May release).  This flamingo is so cute…a great set for card making and bible journaling. I couldn’t stop at just one card and I can’t wait to stamp it in my bible!

happy camper

Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Door Openings” and we are featuring the NEW Mini TryFolds Release! Here I used 4969- Happy Camper MTF. This is such a cute camper and I decided to color it in fun, girly colors.

The back of the camper is die cut for a window to open!

Again, I made a card inside of the card to place the Tryfold images. My base (blue) is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2, scored @ 2 1/4. The insert (pink) is 5 1/4 x 8, scored @ 4.

The seating area is also die cut to see the images inside.

free hugs

Hello! Just sharing some free (prickly) hugs today. If you haven’t checked out the Sweet ‘n Sassy May Release yet, be sure you do. These sets were very popular and sold out more than once. Here I used Refresh My Soul and Bitty Minnie Alpha.

I did a variation of the Eclipse style card. The letters were die cut and removed. Then I sponged some yellow ink on the negative piece and stamped some cacti onto the letters, which were later raised with foam tape.

Have a great day!
