I had so much fun playing along with the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge (congratulations Helen!). I chose THIS CARD to CASE. This card used the block technique and I thought it went perfectly with the new mini sets at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I used Distress Inks to create my multi-colored blocks. I had to make a set because it was soooo much fun!

WOW! What a Birthday month this has been at Sweet N Sassy Stamps – amiright? There is so much going on from flash sales to free printables and a free stamp with purchase… Check out the details HERE
Today I went through my stash of backgrounds – you know the ones. You see a fun techniques so you try it but then never do anything with it? PLEASE tell me I am not the only one who does this?? Anyway…I decided to make a set of cards with them. I came up with a layout so they would be similar since the backgrounds would make them so different. I used Sweet N Sassy’s Choose Faith Clear Stamp Set for my focal point/sentiments.
I love some of them and I like some of them but overall I am happy with all of them!
Here they are up close…
Grace (I used distress inks and Wink of Stella on Glossy Card stock TECHNIQUE from SCS then pounced the Grace stamp on it with versamark for this background).
Joy (I used Neocolor II water color crayons and a water brush on Bristol paper in this background).OK, now I challenge you to pull out you background pieces and just have fun!! I hope you are inspired!
THanks for stopping by!
For today’s cards. I created some winter backgrounds with Alcohol ink on Yupo paper.
For my first card, I used some SNSS clear sets – For the Birds; Sentiment – Christmas Pine. I Splattered metallic white water color paint for a snowy look and then with the metallic water color, I created a snow bank for my winter bird to sit on. Pretty simple but sweet! This card is for challenges at Splitcoast Stampers Falliday Festival FF17LMcAreeFor my second card I used some digis from Sweet N Sassy – Cup of Cocoa and Snowman Soup. This card is also for challenges at Splitcoast Stampers Falliday Festival FF17CAKath
I hope you are inspired.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great one!
For today’s card, I played along with another Falliday Challenge at SplitcoastStampers FF17hbrown Fall Splendor.
Using the Leaf Skeleton BG and smooshing technique, I created the colors of fall for this fun challenge. I embossed the sentiment from Autumn Leaves Clear Stamp Set with copper embossing powder on vellum.
I finally got all my reports done and got a chance to play in ink this weekend and in doing so, I finally got a chance to play along with some of the Falliday Fest Challenges at Splitcoast Stampers. The Challenge today FF17diniA was to pick a SCS tutorial that starts with the first letter of my first name…My first name is Joshualyn so I chose Joseph’s Coat.
I used the Falling Leaves Clear Stamp Set and the Autumn Collage Set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I created background with distress ink (Spice Marmalade, Candy Apple Red, and Mustard Seed) then embossed the leaves and covered it all with vintage photo. I embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder.
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!
You still have a little time to join in on Challenge #167 – Anything Goes! There are prizes… For our prizes, one lucky winner will be awarded a $10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop. We like to select a couple other projects to highlight as well. Good Luck!

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!
This weekend was wet around here so it has been a weekend of Distress inks – so inky, messy, and A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I made a couple of CAS cards with Sweet N Sassy Stamps Master of the Sea Set.
My second card uses the Master of the Sea set as well but I played with my Distress Oxides (Broken China) and played along with the Featured Stamper Challenge at SplitcoastStamper. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case for my card. I hope she has a great weekend as the featured stamper!
That is all for now – Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
For my card today, I created a sympathy card. This isn’t always a fun card to make but it is nice to have when you need one. Today I used another of the new February images from Sweet N Sassy Stamps Floral Greetings,
These images are so beautiful and the sentiments are so perfect for a variety of occasions that I decided to go with one of my favorite layouts from Splitcoast Stampers – Faux Blocking – It lets you have fun just with the coloring and the results are awesome!!I hope you were inspired today!
