when I rise

Hello! Today I am sharing a card using the Sweet ‘n Sassy stamp In The Morning from the February release.

I was thinking about what kind of background I wanted for the sentiment stamp when I remembered that I have some sample pieces I never used of various techniques that were made at least 10 years ago! lol. I know this because I made them sometime before a dear friend took ill. We both enjoyed trying new ideas. This is a simple, oldie but goodie…Smackin’ Acetate. I don’t remember if I used inkpads or markers but it worked well with this stamp. I just layered it, then added some washi and a flower with a button.

Have a great day!

Hello! Today I am sharing a project using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps. In The Morning is from the February release. I also used Fill Me Up and the Tea & Bible Journaling Digital Set. (There’s also a coffee set if you prefer that!)

My friend, Mary Ann, made this frame a few years ago which hangs above my desk on a cork board. It has held round coasters that are decorated and changed out monthly (they are magnetic). It will also hold the square coasters in my stash (yay!) and I am planning to make a few extra to swap out occasionally. It is such a great idea! I’ve enjoyed mine.

I sponged the background with some dye-based inks and then stamped images with Versafine Black. “& Tea” was printed from a digital file, cut out, and sponged. The teacup was paper pieced. Some rhinestones and Wink of Stella were added for sparkle.

I can never show the sparkle well! It’s on the sun too.

Hello! I am sharing a few cards today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the February release. Here I used the What A Savior stamp set.

For the first card, I smooshed some Memento Teal Zeal and New Sprout inks onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water. Then I laid my white cardstock down to pull the color. When dry, I stamped the words with Tuxedo Black and the flowers with Teal Zeal. I stamped an additional flower with Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, then popped it up with foam tape. Two gemstones were added above & below the words.

On my second card, I repeatedly stamped the flowers in black for a background, then colored just one in a very light turquoise. The word Jesus was outlined with a marker and the other three words were stamped onto colored cardstock, cut out, and adhered. If you look closely, there’s a hint of fine gold thread under the word panel.

Have a great day!

Hello! I am sharing a set of cards today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the January release. Here I used Thoughtful Words and Whimsy Bouquet.

After stamping, I didn’t know what color I wanted to make the flowers so I decided to make all three different! When I had my panels colored, they seemed like they needed a little something extra…and then I remembered how much just a few simple scored lines can make an effect. I added a few enamel dots and finished them off with a bit of Stickles and Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

These flowers are so fun and versatile…I love the whimsical feel of them! They were perfect for decorating the heart on this valentine card.  The flowers were colored with Copics and I added a few drops of Stickles (which are hard to see) to give this a bit of sparkle.

Have a great day!

wetlands

Hello! I am sharing another card today using Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the NEW January release. Here I used Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass, Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands, and Thoughtful Words.

I die cut a circle, then masked it to sponge on the inks. A small circle punch was used to mask the sun. The images were stamped in black after sponging. Then I stamped the grasses “tone on tone” on the card front for the background.

Have a great day!

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!

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.

fox birthday diane zechman

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!
