I finally got to play with my scraps and create a background using THIS Splitcoaststampers tutorial. I tweaked the design a bit but it was really fun and what a great way to use up scraps! I colored up Little Miss Muffets’ Jr Hatter Millie, (colored up to coordinate with my scraps) –  I made a fun CAS card but I would love to see what you do with this technique!

Recipe:

  • Images: Jr Hatter Millie digi stamp available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps
  • Paper: White cardstock (PTI) Navy card (Bazzill), scraps
  • Ink Image: Copics,
  • Ink Sentiment: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear embossing powder
  • Other: basic and polka dot backdrop dies (AJVD) oval and scallop oval dies (Spellbinders)

SNSS – What a Friend I have in Jesus!

I am in love with Sweet N Sassy Stamp’s new Hymn Blocks Stamps. I have just been singing these songs as I made my cards and having a wonderful time.

I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set that I wanted to create a set of cards (I mean how do I chose just one for a card?) For fun, I decided to challenge myself to create 6 different card fronts using basically the same supplies.

With three distress inks (Salty Ocean, Abandoned Coral, and Mustard Seed – used separately and together to create a rainbow effect) as well as some additional tools, I came up with the following:

First, I watered down the colors and with a paint brushed, I splattered them onto my card panel. I inked the hymn block with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it.Second, I used an acrylic block and inked the colors (making sure to over lap yellow with the other two to create green and orange). I spritzed some water onto it the block and “stamped” the color onto my card panel. Again,  I inked the hymn block with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it.For my third card, I stamped some butterflies and flowers from Floral Greetings with Versamark. After drying it, I blended the colors onto the panel, spritz a little water onto it to soften to look and  inked the hymn  block with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it. You can’t really see the flowers and butterflies in the picture but in real life, they offer a little movement for the card.Next, I repeated the process from above but I embossed the flowers and butterflies so that they would stand out and I inked the colors up a little heavier. For this one, I inked the Hymnal Block with white and popped it up on a panel.The next card uses the ever fun “smooshing” technique using the same 3 colors and overlaps and acetate. I inked the hymn block with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it.Last (but not least), I used a music notes stencil (from Tando Creative) and blended my inks over it. Before I removed the stencil, I spritz a little water onto it then I inked the hymn block with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it.Oh my gosh – this was soooo much fun! Challenge yourself and see what you come up with 🙂

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

LMMS – Sprinkles!

Today I have some sweetness to share! Using Little Miss Muffets’ Jr Hatter Sweetie, I made a fun CAS card. 

I recently saw a clever technique using an embossing folder that I HAD to try. First, I blended on a little distress ink, then I stenciled on a few spots of pinks. NOW for the technique… Basically, I put the inked panel in the embossing folder and with a small hammer, I tapped in random spots to emboss some but not all of the panel. It was pretty fun – try it out and see what you think!!

Recipe:

  • Images: Jr Hatter Sweetie digi stamp available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps
  • Paper: White cardstock (PTI) Brown card (Bazzill)
  • Ink: Copics,
  • Background and Sentiment: Distress Ink – Walnut Stain and Picked Raspberry
  • Other: basic and polka dot backdrop dies (AJVD) Fishtail dies (MFT)

I used Polka Dot Pals Wikoli and Wendi digi stamps available at Little Miss Muffet – Just in time for Challenge #166 “Anything Goes!” I really had fun coloring. More and more lately, I have just sat down with my markers and didn’t worry about the layout design for the card and it was so therapeutic. Try it and see!

Happy Birthday Princess!

Today I have a very quick and sweet birthday card for a sweet little princess using Child of the King and Stand Tall Stamp Sets.
I used Canson watercolor paper for the base and did some ink smooshing with Distress Inks (Victoria Velvet and Seedless Preserves.) I inked the image and sentiment in Versa Fine Onyx Black and WOW clear embossing powder then colored the image with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, and rounded corners finished my card off.

It makes me smile!!

SNSS – Inktense

Today I got out my Inktense pencils and my SSS Grid stencil and created a background for a bigger sentiment. I used a sentiment from the new Sweet N Sassy Stamps – Kindness Matters set.

The background was a little bight so I went over it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Another thank you card for my stash – Awesome!

Have a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS – Simple Thank You!

I am still playing around with the new Sweet N Sassy Stamps – Kindness Matters and Fantastic Flowers sets. I went pretty simple using the twig of leaves and water color (with Distress Inks). I colored it up twice, then created a 3D effect then added the “Thank you!” from the sentiment set and that is all there is to this one. It really makes me happy.

Now I have a thank you card for my stash which is something I don’t really think about too often so yay!!

I hope you had a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS Kindness Matters!

Sweet N Sassy Stamps has some great new stamps sets this month and today’s card uses a couple of them – Kindness Matters and  Fantastic Flowers. The sentiments in the Kindness Matters set are fantastic! They can be used on a variety of cards and the Flowers really are Fantastic – they are pretty big, but they are great and there are several to choose from including leaves

I played around with emboss resist and some new Simon Says Stamps Ink. They are pretty fun to work with. They blend well and the colors are beautiful. (Colors – Hollyhocks, Teeny Bikini, Sunkist, Melon)

SNSS TY for your Kindness copy

I hope you had a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!
