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.

under His wings

Good morning!

Just popping in with a card or two using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.  Here I used His Wings to create a CAS card.

I started by sponging some green & blue ink over a stencil for the background. The feathers were colored with Copics and popped with dimensionals.

I actually made this second card first but realized the set was out of stock/retired. I wasn’t going to share it but since I already took a photo, I thought many of you might have it and would like to see a way to use it other than bible journaling. So here is a similar card with the retired set, Songs of Praise.

Christmas topiary

Good morning!

It may be Halloween, but I am popping in with a CAS Christmas card using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.  Here I used Christmas Topiaries.

christmas topiaries diane zechman

I started by sponging a light turquoise ink over the Tim Holtz Nordic stencil. Then I realized that if I turn the stencil 90° and sponge again, it looks kinda like a flower! After I edited my pic, though, I see white Xs…lol.  Focus on the blue! 😉

The topiary was cut out and popped with dimensionals.

Have a great day!

6×6 pumpkin gingerbread

Good morning!

Just popping in with a 6×6 recipe card using some Sweet ‘n Sassy images.  Here I used the Rhubarb’s Gingerbread Man digital image plus some snowflakes from my Snowy Hello stamp set.

This is one of our favorite breads and I occasionally make it all winter…not just for the holiday!  I ran out of space on the front so I added the directions on the back.

dashing penguin

Good morning!

Today I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using my Holiday Hugs stamp set.  I was inspired by a Partial Die Cutting technique by Jennifer McGuire.  I didn’t use any dies here, but trimmed around the bottom of the penguin image with scissors after cutting the sides with a paper trimmer.

I layered a colored panel inside, as Jennifer did, with the sentiments.

Give this technique a try…it’s quite easy and fun! Have a great day!

autumn thanks

Good morning!

Today I am sharing these cards on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the So Grateful, Autumn Leaves, and Skeleton Leaf Background stamp sets.  They are 4 1/4″ square, perfect for a little note of thanks.

autumn thanks diane zechman

I inked the leaf background image with 2 colors before stamping, a yellow and a peach.  Then I swiped the same inkpads over a scrap of white cardstock to stamp the Autumn Leaves on.  Although they look black, the leaves and sentiment are a dark brown.  The cards were simply finished with a few orange sequins.

floral anniversary

Good morning!

Just popping in with an anniversary card using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps.  Here I used Floral Greetings.

The edge of the watercolor paper panel was wet with water and torn away.  Then I colored with Inktense pencils and blended with water and a brush. Some wink of Stella was added to the flower centers and butterflies. The sentiment strip is popped on foam tape.

peace on earth

Good morning!

Today I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Peace on Earth and Christmas Botanicals stamp sets.  I think they coordinate together nicely.

peach on earth diane zechman

My plan was to stamp the dove to show through the oval cutout (as in the photo) but to emboss the words in white on the blackberry panel.  I just couldn’t envision how to complete it and I really wanted to also emboss the panel with this pretty embossing folder, so I decided to skip the embossed words and add a sentiment strip instead.  The flower and leaves were popped with foam tape and I added some pearls to finish.

Have a great day!
