Playing with my cute, cute set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Puppy Love.  I wanted a masculine card, always have trouble with them but I think this works.  I stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The paper is from Jen Hadfield, I found it at JoAnn's.

Be A Flamingo

Hi everyone, I am so excited to share  2 cards for you using one of the  New Release sets from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps,  I so LOVE this set called Be A Flamingo - OMGosh so cute and versatile.  I used Memento Ink to stamp with and the paper is from DCWV.
On this next card I am using Be A Flamingo again along with Party Pals, Scripty Thoughts and I used one of the stamps from Texture Tiles 2 (which is the stamp of the month for June, Free with $75 purchase) to make the ground under the flamingo.  I intended it to look like a dock but hubby says it doesn't!   I colored with Copics and the paper is Fandango by Craft Smith, I found it at Hobby Lobby.

4th of July

I know, summer has not officially started and we are thinking about the 4th of July already.   This is how us crafty people think!   For my card today I am using a couple of the new release sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and an older digital image.   The first set is called Free Indeed and it is awesome for patriotic card and for Bible stamping, and the second it called Texture Tiles 2 and it is the stamp of the month which means it is free with a $75 purchase! The digital image is called Puppy Love.    I stamped the fireworks with Versafine and then used glitter embossing powder on them, then I used distress inks to make the sky and the red for the brick and then stamped the brick texture tile over the red. I colored the puppy with copic and fussy cut him out.

For today's card I am using Sketchy Floral Teapot, colored with copics and the paper is from DCWV.  Play along with us for your chance at 4,7, or 10 digi images from Bug A Boo Stamps.  Remember since summer is here our sketches are last the whole month so you have that much longer to play along.

A little of This and That

Was in a weird mood this afternoon so I pulled out a bunch of stamps and made a card.  I used the Baby Wipe watercolor technique for the background and then randomly inked 2 of the background stamps from the up and coming stamp of the month set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Texture Tiles 2 added a few hearts from the Grunge Elements 2 set and then I used markers on the flowers from Long Stem Silhouettes, spritzed them with water and stamped them.To complete the card I put it on a random piece of newsprint paper. All Stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

So Prickly

Lol, I love this image sentiment from the new set Refresh My Soul from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.  I colored with copics and the papers are from my scrap bin. I added some googlie eye for a touch of whimsy but not sure if I like them.    You know you know someone you could give this card to, lets face it we all get prickly now and again!  Don't forget if you spend $75 this month the free stamp set is Scripty Thought (pictured below).

Feeling so Loved!

Hello friends, I am playing with one of this month's new release sets at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Did you happen to see Sheri Gilson's wreath cards today?  She inspired me to get out my Itty Bitty Blossoms stamp set an play, I so struggle with the whole wreath making scene and hers are perfect.  I asked her if I could case one of her cards and I tried twice and well, the results were not great so I tried to keep it simple and it worked out ok.  I stamped and embossed each element, colored with copics and the paper is from Jen Hadfield, which is new to me, I found it at JoAnn Fabrics yesterday all there paper pads were 50% off.  The sentiment is from the set called Thoughtful Words also from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, I love this sentiment because on the inside you can add many things like "On your Anniversary", "On your Birthday", "And hope you Feel Better Soon".  Don't forget that our stamp of the month is Scripty Thoughts (shown below) free with $75 order.  Make sure you click on Sheri's name to see her beautiful cards.

Welcome

Playing with the Love Your Neighbor stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this afternoon.  Was going for a simple card with no coloring.  Not sure what I think about it, it is different for me.  I also used Texture Tiles 1 on the tag.
