CAS Mother’s Day card

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the beautiful Mason Jar Bouquet stamp set from this month’s release.

Sometimes a clean & simple card is just as pretty as one with many layers and embellishments and I really liked how the colors and design of this one turned out.  I inked just the center of the Floral Pattern Background stamp with a small Memento dew drop pad and left the edges un-inked. The flower was cut out and popped up with foam dimensionals.  Some Stickles in the flower center and a few sequins finished it off.

Have a great day!

celebrate big

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Fly High stamp set from this month’s release.

I decided to make a tall card with the balloons flying up and then I thought I’d add the elephant hanging off the bottom. The balloons were paper pieced and I added Crystal Effects to make them shiny.

This card measures 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 (start with 7 x 6 1/4) and fits into a regular No. 8 envelope.  Most of us have those lying around to pay an occasional bill so why not use them to make a different size card?

Have a great day!

painted flowers

Good morning!  Today I have a card that was “just for fun” using Altenew’s Painted Flowers set that I picked up at The Craft Shack.  I’ve loved this set since it was first released. It is so pretty with it’s painted look!  The sentiment is an older wood block from Penny Black.

Each flower was stamped in 2 colors plus the black outline (3 layers) so making a set of 4 cards took a bit of time but was well worth it. The Misti tool makes it so easy!

Have a great Wednesday!

an anniversary card

Good afternoon!

Just popping in to share a card I recently made for an anniversary. The pretty flowers from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Floral Greetings set are perfect for the occasion!

I stamped one of the flowers a few times for the background and kept it black & white. Then I stamped, colored, and cut out a single flower from the cluster and popped it up with dimensionals. The center of the flower has some clear Wink of Stella and I added a few tiny drops of Pale Gold Nuvo Drops around it.

Have a great day!

fill ‘er up

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Ai Hobby Lobby Set- AiCS32 Hot Java Mama.  If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, it is also available on the Ai website!

fill er up diane zechman

I am not a coffee drinker but I do like to make coffee themed cards.  I just love that “fill ‘er up” sentiment and it fit perfectly on my cardstock tab!  I stamped her onto a wonky panel because a lot of us feel a bit like that in the morning, right?  I paper pieced her a heart patterned nightgown and gave her a blue robe (haven’t we all had a blue robe at some point in life?).

Grab some caffeine, wake up, enjoy your day, and… happy stamping!

Good morning! Just sharing a quick, CAS card as a little reminder to shine today!  I used the Sweet ‘n Sassy Worthy King Clear Stamp Set from the Creative Worship line.

Can you spot the jewel image? With just a few added lines, I turned it into a pencil! ha!

Have a great day and enjoy the remainder of the weekend!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

hello bunny

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with another card using the new Ai Easter set, 4886-Easter Blessings. I love the sweet images in this set and this time I chose the cute bunny relaxing in the flower for my card today.  I wanted this to be a general “hello” card rather than an Easter one so I used the sentiment from 4759- Hello Friend MTF.

I decided to go with another CAS card with some vertical panels, using up a few patterned paper scraps.  It feels good to make use of them!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Good morning!

Today I am sharing a CAS card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the new Pretty Potted Florals and Floral Greetings (for my sentiment) stamp sets from this month’s release.

I kept this clean and simple and used up some scraps of paper.  I pulled the colors from the paper to color with Copics.  The flower petals and pot were stamped again, colored, and popped with foam dimensionals.

Easter blessings

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using a new Art Impressions Easter set (which is so darn cute), 4886-Easter Blessings.  This set has 4 sweet bunny images to choose from plus a few extras. I picked one of the smaller images to fit the style of card I was creating.

A good friend of mine recently made one of these Recessed Panel Cards with our local stamping group and I thought it would be perfect to make with this set. I made 2 very similar versions with a change of patterned paper and placement of the sentiment.

The left and right white panels are popped up with foam tape so that the patterned paper panel is “recessed”. This is a fun, easy way to create interest in your card front.
