miss you

Hello! I am sharing another card today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the NEW January release. Here I used Through The Trees and Thoughtful Words.

The trees were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and outlined with a light blue Copic marker. I tore the left edge and layered it over a punched scallop border. Then I added some ribbon with a few folds in it, securing it with Scor-Tape and a gold brad.

Have a great day!

stop drop and pray

Hello! I am sharing a card today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the NEW January release. Here I used Stop Drop Pray and Whimsy Bouquet. They are both from the Creative Worship line but I wanted to show how they can be used in card-making as well.

This is CAS… I just stamped, colored with Copics, and popped my panel up on a sheet of white craft foam. A few drops of Stickles were added to the little dots.

Have a great day!

birthday fox

Hello! Can you believe 2017 has almost come to a close? I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and many blessings come your way in 2018!

I am sharing a quick card today using a few of the December Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp sets called Scene Silhouettes: Woodland , Scene Silhouettes: Trees, and Thoughtful Words.

I used a stamp positioning tool (the MISTI) to make this a super easy card to create. The trees were stamped onto both white cardstock and blue patterned paper. Then the top of the white piece was cut away to create a snowy hill. The fox and bird were then stamped to finish the scene.

Have a great day!

forgiven

forgiven diane zechman

Forgiveness. Something I really struggle with. Maybe you do too? But we need to remember to forgive, because God always forgives us. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9.

Have a great day!

I sponged the background, masking the water first. Then I masked the sun with a punched circle. So easy but it always looks pretty!

a hunter’s birthday

Hello! I am just taking a break from holiday cards to pop in with a masculine birthday card using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.  (Can you believe it’s December already?) Here I used Tender Thoughts and Birthday Greetings.

I sponged the background first and snuck in a little purple and peachy pink to make a night-time sky. Then I stamped the trees and just had to add the cute squirrel!

I hope you are having a great Friday!

Christmas pine

Good morning!

Just popping in with a CAS Christmas card using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.  Here I used Christmas Pine.

This really was pretty quick & easy to create…in fact, I made 4 in a short time for my holiday cards. I stamped the pinecone first and masked it before stamping the branches. The background was lightly sponged over a stencil and the brown “splatters” were from an old stamp. Instead of coloring the pinecone, I simply sponged on a bit of brown and added a little Stickles for some sparkle.

more wood slice ornaments

Good morning!

Today I am sharing some more wood slice ornaments on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog. This time I used my Holiday Hugs and Poinsettias & Candles stamp sets along with We Three Kings.

The ornaments were stamped with Archival ink and watercolored with Inktense pencils. The first two are from Poinsettias & Candles and We Three Kings.  I added some Wink of Stella to the star, base, and flames on the first one and a tiny rhinestone to the star on the wise men one.
