This month’s release has snow many wonderful stamps but the snowmen are my favorites – they are simply too cute for words! And they compliment each other so well! I am featuring the SNOW MUCH FUN Set.

I have created two projects for your inspiration today. They are similar in that they are both hillside snowy scenes. Using Landscape Silhouettes to create the treeline. Two of the snowman were “moving” downhill so they really begged to be put on mountains I think – what about you?

The first is more of an early evening/morning scene with purples and dark blues and the other is an afternoon scene with blues and greens.

For this one, my sentiment came from Sentimental Wordfetti.

For this one, my sentiment came from Christmas Wordfetti – also new this monthI used Strathmore Bristol paper and Distress Oxide Inks for both of my projects

NOW head over to see what Sheri has created for you!!

If if you get the opportunity to craft with some of these great stamps (or any other SNSS stamp) we would love to see what you create on our SNSS VIP Group Facebook Page; Or tag your creations with #snss or #sweetnsassystamps on Instagram.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Bugaboo – Friday Freebie – Autumn Sign

Hi Guys – today’s Friday Freebie at Bugaboo is a sweet Autumn sign.

I decided to use a piece of background paper I created with Brushos and Stencils. I added some texture stamps with archival ink (leaves and newsprint ) and then I colored my image with Copics to match the paper. Way easier than doing it the other way 🙂 I channeled Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker when I decided the image panel needed texture so it would blend with the background panel…I got out my alcohol and lightly moistened a paper towel and dabbed it onto the panel – super fun!

I added the word “Blessings” to make it more of a sentiment-image and it actually turned out awesome … I think I love it!

I hope you are inspired – Happy Fall Y’all!

I am going to enter this one into the following challenges:

Bugaboo – Have a Spooktacular Day!

Happy Halloween friends! I had so much fun coloring up this digi from Bugaboo called Have a Spooktacular Day!

After I colored the little guys (with Copics), I thought the background was empty so I went with a dotty sky look – trying to imply sky but not getting so dark you couldn’t see the sentiment. Then I found the watercolor background and bat sequins in my stash and thought they were meant to be 🙂

I hope you day and night is full of treats!

SNSS – Rhubard’s Fall

WooHoo!! The weather is finally a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change colors – I love it!

Today I have some beary adorable clean and simple fall cards! Both use Neenah Dessert Storm (kraft) and Polychromos pencils. This combo is one I love and find myself turning to more and more lately. The stamp set today is another Fall Remix: Rhubarb’s Harvest

The first card is a one layer card.

The second card uses the scraps left over from another card using Canson watercolor paper, Brushos, and a Falling Leaves Stencil.

These were fun! I hope you are inspired to test out color pencils on kraft.

Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS – Fall is in the Air!

Fall is finally here! The weather is finally a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change colors – I love it!

Today’s cards are perfectly fall and so much fun! We have a Remix – a  FALL Remix called – Autumn Splendor. I created some “falling leaves” layouts using two different papers and different mediums to see what the differences would produce – they both make me smile out loud and I can’t decide which one I prefer!

The first card is a one layer card using Neenah Dessert Storm (kraft). The leaves were colored with Polychromos pencils which are so wonderful on kraft. The colors just pop! I tried to create some dimension with shadows. It was a fun challenge and I am really happy with the results.

My second card uses Canson watercolor paper, Brushos, and a Falling Leaves Stencil for a background panel and then for the focal point, I colored up the leaves with Inktense pencils for a watercolor look.

These were fun! I hope you are inspired to test out different papers and mediums and see what happens!

Thanks for stopping by!

This month we have a lot of fall sets that work perfectly together. Like combined, they are one big set haha! I am featuring the Fall In Love With Jesus set this month.

I have created three projects for your inspiration today…

The first card is clean and simple and uses the small elements in the set to create a collection of stamps (these could have come straight from the post office don’t you think?) My sentiment came from Sentimental Wordfetti.My second project uses the bigger (small) leaf stem and the berries to create a loose watercolor wreath. I used a sentiment from the new Grateful Heart set which is this month’s stamp of the month – free to you with a $75 purchase. The sentiments are especially wonderful in this one!

My final project is a Bible Journal card for my Mini Bible.

  • I used Canson Water color paper and Distress Inks for all of my projects

Watercolor Splotches

Hi Friends! It is my turn for the Splitcoast Technique Lover’s Challenge. I found a fun little watercolor technique. It reminds my of the rorschach test – what do you see in the watercolor splotch haha! You may see birds, trees, flowers,etc… Whatever you see in the splotch, just grab your outline pen (I used a Copic Multiliner) and go with it!!

I used Distress Oxides today and my images are super muted. If you want a more vibrant image, you could use Distress Inks, or any other water base ink, or water colors. My sentiments are from the Sweet N Sassy Sentimental Wordfetti set – This is a go to fun simple sentiments!

I hope you are inspired to play along with the challenge! I can’t wait to see what you create with your splotches.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adore Him!

I am not sure about you guys but Christmas stuff is popping up everywhere around me – It is 93 degrees here in Georgia so it is a little hard to get into the Christmas spirit, but this new set from Sweet N Sassy surely has done it! It is called Adore Him. It is so precious. It has so many different elements in the Christmas Story that I have lots of ideas running through my mind.

Today’s images were colored with Polychromos pencils. They take a little while to build up the color, but the end result is great!

My first card uses Distress Oxides to create a night time sky.  I used Wood Backgrounds to create “wood pieces” for the “manger” and the colored the baby , fussy cut it, and popped it up on fun foam. I used the sentiment from an older set called Peace on Earth (retired) And that is all there is too this one – clean and simple but not really, right?

SNSS OCome copy

My second card uses The Three Wise Men. This one is very  clean and simple. I colored them, fussy cut them, and glued them onto a white card. I rounded the corners for a little added interest. For this one, I used a sentiment from We Three Kings – I love this sentiment!

SNSS Adore Him copy

These were so much fun! I hope you are inspired to get your Christmas cards started. It will actually be here before you know it!
