forgiven

Hello! I am sharing another card today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the NEW December release. Here I used Scene Silhouettes: Woodland (the December 2017 Stamp of the Month), Scene Silhouettes: Trees, and Hello My Name Is.

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!

Have a great day!

Here I used a special set called Scene Silhouettes: Woodland which happens to be the December 2017 Stamp of the Month.

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.

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!
