Pretty Potted Florals Set

I am so in love with this set called Pretty Potted Florals that I decided to make a set with it. I colored all the flowers with copic markers and added some stickles to them for a little shimmer.  I tried to stay in the pink family as far as color goes and the papers are from all different companies.  I made a little tag to put on the front of the box.   This set is just so versatile and I think it is perfect for a little set! Make sure you check out the 50% off discontinued items sale going on now.  You can see the items on  HERE.

Bright Future


Happy Sunday

It's Ceal, here to share with you today a card using one of our new releases along with an older favorite. 

For my card I started with a black top folding card base and a white stitched panel. I made the background by randomly stamping the diamond from the new set Worthy King to cover the panel and colored them in with Copic markers. 
I made a focal point with one of the quotes from the set Faith Quote Blocks.
I embossed the greeting in white embossing powder and then colored the word "bright" and the heart with comic markers.




Worthy King is in the Creative Worship line, I wanted to show it can be used for a card as well.

Birthday Dog Roses with new stamps from Floral Greetings

It's Gracie Chávez and today I'm here to share a new card using the new stamp set Floral Greetings. I had the absolute joy to put together this set for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps that includes two beautiful floral images and a collection of greetings for every occasion!

My card for today is very clean with a striking color palette. I wanted the flowers to stand out more than anything else. I colored them -guiding myself by dog roses pictures- in two tones of pink and decoupaged them to add more dimension.





To create the decoupage effect I stamped the dogrose branch twice to the background and colored the images. I also stamped the flowers on another piece of white cardstock and colored them. I then fussy cut them and adhere them on top of the previously stamped background, offsetting the flowers a bit to make them look fuller.


I hope you enjoyed today's post! Make sure to take a minute and stop by the shop to take a closer look to this and other new stamps from our new release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Have a crafty, happy weekend!

Comfort...

{jane bosi}

Happy Friday!!  Today, I'm sharing a card that features two of Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps' new sets. 

I'm totally in love with the beautiful images in Krista Hamrick's illustrations.  This most recent set, Living Word, is so inspiring!  I combined the main image with Words of Life: Actions for this card of encouragement I'm sending to someone very special.

I can't wait to see what you are going to create with these wonderful goodies!  Be Awesome, Jane

Greetings! Kim here today to share a Bible journaling layout featuring the As the Deer stamp set. I am relatively new to Bible journaling and I confess that I love it! I purchased a Bible just for art journaling and its one that includes some pre-printed designs and Scripture verses that you can color or paint. I find this option can be a great source of inspiration. 

For today's layout, can I share that I love this set! It features so many sweet images that are perfect for creating scenes. This is a perfect set for creating cards as well...so many options!

On my pages I used gelatos for the background color and Prismacolor Water Color pencils for all of the coloring. And...I created a video to take you through my creative process. Enjoy!

With Sympathy

Hello Sweet Friends! It's Monika here today with a sympathy card. I love stamping and heat embossing on vellum, so when I saw the gorgeous flower images in the Floral Greetings clear stamp set, I new I had to make a card with vellum... it is a very easy technique, and looks fabulous.
If you can fussy cut the images and used them as 'embellishments' they even look better! Such a delicate look, don't you think?
 
 
I stamped (and heat embossed) the bigger flower again and after fussy cutting it, I adhered it on the base image with dimensional tape. I also stamped three butterflies... they look so wonderful fluttering around.
 
 
The background was made with Magenta Nuance light green pigment powder. I just sprinkled the powder on water color cardstock and spritzed it with water. To add a touch of shabby look to my card, I distressed the edges of the water color panel, and after assembling the card, I also added copper micro beads...

The sketch for my card came from CAS(E) this Sketch #208.
 
Thanks for stopping by,
Monika

so thankful

Good morning!
 
Today I am sharing a card using the new Floral Greetings stamp set in the Sweet 'n Sassy website.  I originally started making this as a black, white, and gray card but decided to give it a pop of raspberry color.  I'm glad I did!
 

I colored with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella to make the top butterfly and flower sparkle.  One butterfly was fussy cut and attached near the diecut corner.


Have a happy Saturday!  Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!
Diane

Valentine Teddy


Hi there Sweet 'n Sassy Friends! 
It's Ceal here to share a card using one of my favorite valentine sets, Valentine Critters
The images in this set are so adorable! 
To make my card I started with a white card base, a white panel cut down with a stitched die and a scrap of watercolor paper for the bear. I stamped the bear in waterproof ink and then colored it with Zig cleancolor pens. I cut him out with the coordinating Valentine Critters dies (discontinued). I added some washi tape to the front of the stitched panel and popped the teddy bear up using foam tape. To finish the card I added some sequins along with some tiny gold hearts.

Valentine Background Fun!

I have a fun background today (haha, I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately - YAY Me!!) - I have been wanting to do a background collage of images... so for this technique, I went with digis. The beauty of a digi is that you can change their size, in the case of this card, move them around on the paper as many times as you want before committing to the layout, and even flipping the image if you want. Pretty convenient for this type of project!
My digis include: Valentine Birdie Digital StampValentine Kitty, Valentine Bunny with Sentiment Digital StampValentine Teddy with Sentiment Digital Stamp and the sentiment is from the You & Me Clear Stamp Set (not a digi because white embossing and digis - not so much...)snss-valentines-copy
It turned out sweet right? Now it is your turn - create a simple card with an image filled background. This works with clear/rubber stamps too! I can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!
