Hope you are having a great long weekend if you are in the US! I started this weekend with some Live fun on the Sweet N Sassy VIP FaceBook page. I shared some fun card ideas using Sweet N Sassy Alphas then I spent the rest of the weekend having fun with the cards I set up and/or inked up that night. These were so much fun! Before I took everything off my MISTI, I inked up more cards for future coloring haha!
Soooo. Here we go! This is pretty long so if you need to get a cup of tea or coffee, I can wait 🙂
First I shared a fun stacked word idea – we brainstormed words like Celebrate, Thank You, Merry (to be combined with Christmas), Happy (to be combined with Birthday), and Baby (to be combined with Welcome). I created cards with a few of these ideas.
The first three use IN STITCHES ALPHA. I inked up the words with Gina K Amalgam Ink.(I inked the background and colored the letters with Distress Inks)
(Colored the letters with Copics – added sentiment from SO THANKFUL)
(Colored the letters Colored Pencils)
(Colored the letters with Copics)
(Colored the letters with Copics – added gifts and sentiment from ALL WRAPPED UP)
This next one was a suggestion from Kay Chennault. It uses OUTLINE ALPHAS, BITTY MINNIE ALPHA, and gifts from ALL WRAPPED UP. All colored with Distress Oxides.Second, I created a fun, punny card used the whole SKINNY MINNIE ALPHA set and using BITTY MINNIE ALPHA to create the sentiment inside the card. I used a heart from FOREVER and ALWAYS
Third, I created a couple if tags with SHAKE IT OFF CAPS ALPHA. I used SENTIMENTAL WORDFETTI, and STAND TALL(discontinued) for the complimentary sentiments and the party hat came from BIRTHDAY PALS (discontinued).
A quick little mini cad – using CLASSY SCRIPT APLHA, FOREVER and ALWAYS, SENTIMENTAL WORDFETTI (Forever stamps need to be marked right?)FINALLY, I used some foam squares die cut with Spellbinders to create some color blocks with Distress Oxides. I used SKINNY CAPS ALPHA then I completed my sentiments using “you” from BE UNIQUE, and other sentiments from BITTY MINNIE ALPHA, and SENTIMENTAL WORDFETTI.
I have one more sample but it uses a new set so I think I will make that another post later on. This is plenty for now I think – what about you? Whew!!
Thanks for stopping by!
