Genuine Love


Hello friends, playing with a new stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps today called Genuine Love.  I was not sure where I was going when I started this card but love how it turned out.  I used watercolor markers and watercolor paper.  The designer paper is from my scrap bin and I added some pearls to fancy it up a little bit.  I think this card would be great for an engagement, a bridal shower, or even a wedding. Remember at SNSS if you spend $75 you will receive the stamp of the month FREE and also there is FREE shipping on a $75 order.

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps After Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the After Party Blog Hop.  The March release has so many AMAZING stamp sets, the design team is so excited to share some inspiration with you. 
 For my first card I am using Scripture Crosses, this stamp set is perfect if you want a quick and easy card! I stamped the cross in Distress Ink and added some flowers in coordinating colors.  The paper is from DCWV. I sewed all my panels with the sewing machine.
 My next cards are using the stamp set of the month called Doodle Florals which is FREE with a $75 purchase.   I am in love with this set!!  I stamped my flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then hand drew the stems and stamped the leaves.  I colored with copic markers and then added the sentiments which are from Thoughtful Words. I wanted to draw in doodles but was afraid I would mess things up so I decided to put black thread in the machine and did my doodles that way.  My background paper is from DCWV.
This is the last stop on the hop so thanks for hopping with us. If for some reason this is your first stop make sure you head back to the start and leave some love for our DT members.   One person will be randomly chosen to  win a $10 voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Shop! We will announce the winner next week.

Easter Blessings

Hello friends, I have an Easter card for you today using one of the new release stamp sets called Victory in Jesus. I just love this stamp set, so perfect for Easter!  I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers and did a little distressing around the edges so the main panel didn't look so white against the background paper.   I used a couple different die cuts to make the mat.  The designer paper is from DCWV.  I added some pearls just to dress it up a little and the sentiment is from the same stamp set.   Make sure you stop over at the SNSS store and check out the whole release, it is AMAZING!  If you spend $75 you get the stamp of the month -Doodle Florals, Free!  SNSS also offers free shipping with a $75 order.
Be Blessed,
~Stephanie

Hello- Doodle Florals

Happy Friday Morning friends,  I have a sweet little card using Doodle Florals which is this months stamp of the month from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  That means if you spend $75 you get this set free.  This set is amazing and very versatile.  I recently got a gel plate so this is my first crack at this technique.  I used a brayer to apply my acrylic paints to the plate, first I used blue and then I added a stencil with little dots and then put a layer of white on top.   I have so much to learn but for my first try I was happy.   I then stamped my flowers  and colored them with Prismacolor pencils.  The background paper is from The Paper Studios.   This is a very different look for me but sometimes, Different is GOOD! You can get 10% off if you order the whole release by the 9th!  Make sure you keep a lookout, we are going to have a New Release Hop next week that you won't want to miss.

2 cards to share...

I have 2 cards to share with you today using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
This first card uses Girl Power 2 which is back in stock along with a few older sets, Be Encouraged,
Choose Faith and Truth Quotes.  I wanted a fun, cheerful card to give to our neighbor who is fighting Ewing's Sarcoma and I think these stamp sets all worked well together.  I colored her with copics and paper pieced her shirt, the papers come from Pink & Main.
I made a bridal shower card which could also be used as a wedding card or engagement card using the heart from Forever & Always and the word love from His Love.  This paper is from DCWV.  I stamped the heart with pink ink and heat embossed it and did some fussy cutting and added it to an embossed circle.  Wow, those two cards used a lot of stamp sets!  Don't forget that if you spend $75 you will receive the stamp of the month for free!
