Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps June Blog Hop

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy friends, it's time to hop along with us.  We are so excited about the new release this month!  
My first card is using Hymn Word Art, I did some smooshing with distress oxides and then stamped my images with black onyx versafine ink.  The polka dot paper is from The Paper Studios.  I also used images from Long Stem Silhouettes and Made New.  
 This next card features Peony Cluster which I am just in love with, I know there are no blue peonies but.... that was the color calling my name.  I colored with Copic markers and the paper is from The Paper Studios.  The sentiment is from Thoughtful words.  
 Remember if you spend $75 you will receive the stamp of the month free along with free shipping. Mine is the last stop on the hop.  If you are starting here make sure you go back to the beginning and leave some love along the way for your chance at a $10 voucher from Sweet'n Sassy Stamps. Thanks for hopping with us and happy stamping!

Sorry.....

T.G.I.F.  that is for sure!  It's been a long week for me.  Today I am playing with this cute little crab from one our newest sets at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Mer-mazing.  I want to welcome our newest illustrator's Jenn Nilsson, her work is so amazing and adorable! I did some repeat stamping to make the background and then colored one of the images to stand out. I used Teeny Alpha for the sentiment- the inside says "I was so crabby".  The plaid paper is from The Paper Studios.  You have a couple days left to get the New Release bundle at a discount (until the 9th) and right now there is a discount code PABOUND, use that at checkout to get 15% off.  If you spend $75 after discounts you also get the Stamp of the MOnth free.

Wedding Season

Hello friends, I have a couple cards to share with you today.  Summertime will soon be here and that means lots of weddings.  I have 2 cards for you today using 2 of our new releases this month.  Happy Couple and Marriage Scripture make for easy wedding cards.  Both of these are from the New Release from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 
This first card I stamped my image and sentiment with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink, you could color in your image but I decided I liked it plain.  The paper is from DCWV and I added some half pearls and ribbon to dress it up a little bit.
This next card I stamped the same way and the designer paper is from DCWV, it is a little sparkly but it does not show up in the picture.  The die for the main panel is from Gina Marie.  There you have it, 2 quick and easy wedding cards.    Don't forget about our Stamp of the Month- Peony Clusters, it is free with a $75 order and it is GORGEOUS, you don't want to miss out on it that is for sure.  As always you get free shipping with a $75 order.   Happy Stamping!!!!!

Butterflies...

Today is a quick and easy card using this wonderful set called Made New by Sweet'n Sassy Stamps.  I stamped one of the largest butterflies onto designer paper and added some colorful panels behind it.  The designer paper all comes from the same pad of Authentique paper.  I decided to dress up the envelope with one of the smaller butterflies and I colored with copics..  Make sure you check out the new release this month and you still have a few days to get your stamp of the month Peony Cluster free with a $75 purchase and you just don't want to miss out on it, can you say GORGEOUS?!
