sweet as honey

Good morning!

Today I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Sweet as Honey stamp set from this month’s release.  There’s something about bee stamps that is hard to resist and this set has some wonderful text to go with it!

I sponged yellow ink, then used the images with 2 of the sentiments to create a collage background and popped up one bee on the side.

Have a great day!

How fun is this image of four friends sharing some crafty time? I so enjoy my time spent stamping with friends!  I added some sparkle with rhinestones, Stickles, and Clear Wink of Stella. The mat behind the image is black and I added Stickles over top to make the black sparkle.

you’re kidding!

Hello friends!  The current Ai Challenge is “Create a Background” and we are featuring the NEW Funny Farm line of stamps.  I was so excited to see this release…there are fun images of cows, goats, chickens, and dogs with plenty of punny sayings to go with them!  Here I used the AICS37 Old Goat Set.

My first background idea didn’t quite work out the way I envisioned, so I decided to stamp the goats twice in a gray ink to make them seem like they are, well, in the background. lol. I stamped and cut them again on a sticky note to create a mask for their legs and sponged some gray “ground”.

Then I stamped the goats again onto scrap cardstock with black ink and colored just one goat, cut him out by hand and popped him up over the gray image.  I diecut the cloud border with some plaid paper to give the card a more masculine look.

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the AICS37 Old Goat Set from the NEW Funny Farm line. These goats are a lot of fun and you can check out my other post today for a more masculine card using this same set!

I thought the sentiment box looked a bit plain down in the corner, so I added a portion of one goat to peek out from behind.  The goat on the top was mounted with a Mini Action Wobble!  I do believe these new Funny Farm images are going to get a lot of use!

Romans 8 and a thank you card

Good morning!

Today I am sharing two projects, a card and a bible journaling page, on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog using the Fantastic Flowers stamp set.  The card I made also uses Kindness Matters.

FF thank you diane zechman

This card is simple but very striking with the flower layered onto the white panel. I simply sponged 3 colors of ink onto white cardstock and stamped the flower on top in black. After I cut the flower out, I hated to throw away the leftover sponged piece, so I stamped the leaves, cut it down to the size I needed, and used it for my background.  I stamped the sentiment and added a few Nuvo drops to finish it off.

After my card was done, I loved the color combo and decided to re-create it in my bible. I chose Romans 8:37-39 to journal. The colors are a little more muted on the bible page but it still turned out fine. I masked the verse and purposely sponged the color lighter on the top left corner.

Romans 8 37-39 diane zechman

The same leaves and flower were stamped in black and highlighted a bit with a white pen. “Made for More” was stamped with the Love Ya Like A Sister Alpha. “Nothing can separate us…” was typed on my computer and cut out.

Have a great day!
