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!

SNSS – Thank You For Loving Me!

Another rainy day – Ughh!! One good thing comes from a rainy day though…time to play with my stamps and stuff!

My card uses a couple of pieces from Sweet N Sassy Stamp Sets – The Good News (the 3 crosses) and the sentiment comes from Precious Poppies. This set has some beautiful poppies but even better are the many awesome sentiments that come with it.

I played along with the Featured Stamper Challenge at SplitcoastStamper again this week and it was a messy, fun, incredible time. Nathalie’s gallery is unbelivable! She has serious talent. Though I had a hard time choosing a card to case, I chose THIS one because she had a tutorial for it that I just HAD to try. Let me tell you now… She make it look a lot easier than it is! I hope she likes this attempt and I hope she has a great weekend as the featured stamper!

Nathalie’s tutorial uses alcohol inks on Yupo and she uses Ranger Alcohol inks on her card. Since I didn’t have the colors she mentioned, I found Copic refills that I thought were similar (B95, YG63, W5, B00). I used black Stazon to ink up my images. The alcohol inks just seemed to fall in all the right places to make this so beautiful.

Thanks for the inspiration Nathalie!

SNSS – Corner Bookmark

Today I played with the Sweet N Sassy Creative Worship: Exclamations Clear Stamp Set some more and though I didn’t create a Bible Journal page today, I did play in my Bible… I thought it would be fun to use the arrow image to create a corner bookmark. I wanted to be able to mark a potential journal page. It points right at what I want…I really like it and it was really simple!

Here is a close up:

I used Strathmore Bristol Paper and Polychromos colored pencils. I used the MFT Inside Out Stitched Round Rectangle Die (I ran it through twice and then ran each piece through again to make it a bit shorter than it actually is.) A 1/8th strip of scor tape on two sides and that is all there is to it.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are inspired!

Have a great day!

Creative Worship: Exclamations Clear Stamp Set.

SNSS – Lord Fill Me Up!

Today I have been playing with a new stamp set  – this month’s release at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. Creative Worship: Exclamations Clear Stamp Set.

It is perfect for Bible Journaling but I was in the mood to make a card. I am actually thinking I want to make a CAS set, but I started with the coffee cup and went not so CAS with it 🙂

I love this designer paper. It is in my stash and I don’t use it often but every time I do, I love the results. For today’s card I used Strathmore Bristol Paper and Polychromos colored pencils. For my set, I am thinking Copics as they are so much quicker for me 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are inspired!

Have a great day!
