Friendship is a Blessing!


Today I have a set of Thinking of you cards using a couple stamp sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The first set is Flower Garden, as soon as I saw this set I thought it would be great for quick and east note cards (more to come).  The set I decided to pair Flower Garden with is Friendship is a Blessing, a match made in heaven!  I colored with watercolors and used a decorative die to cut out the main panel.

Cheerful Love



Happy Friday everyone, I have a sweet little snowman for you today.  I just love this sweet set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Cheerful Snowmen and I know we are past Christmas and all but I thought he would make a great Valentine's Day card!  I did some watercoloring with my Arteza brush pens and the paper is from my scrap bin.  The sentiments are from Love Wordfetti also from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Stop over to the shop and check out the New January Release --> HERE!

If the Lord is with us ....






We have no cause for fear.... Amen for that!  I love this new to me stamp set from Sweet and Sassy Stamps- Blooming Anemones, I colored with Watercolor markers and a paint brush with water.  I did the smooshing technique on the white background along with the Chicken Wire stencil.  On the tan background I used the Script Stencil.  I added some clear gems and some stitching just for something extra.  Make sure you check out the January Release at Sweet and Sassy Stamps, you can find it HERE!

Simple Hearts

Playing with some older Sweet and Sassy Stamps Today, Forever & Always, I stamped with Distress Ink.  The sentiment is Script Sentiments which is brand new from Sweet and Sassy Stamps and I used an embossing folder for the large panel- gosh have not used one of these in forever!  I just wanted a clean and simple card.

Happy 2022!!!!


 

Happy New Year friends, I hope 2022 is a good year for you!!  I am so excited to start out the new year as Guest Designer for Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  For my first post I am using this wonderful flower set called Blooming Anemones, I absolutely love this set.  I colored with copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.  I also used the Sentimental Wordfetti set and the Friend die which I cut twice and offset.  I added a few sequins for a little something extra.  It is so much fun creating on a regular basis again, last year was so hit and miss!!  I will have a bunch more post this month and next using Sweet and Sassy Stamps so keep coming back!   Blessings to you and yours in 2022! You can also find me on IG, 22stephanieserrano  I would love to add some followers *wink wink

Enjoy The Ride!

Playing along in the current challenge over at Art Impressions.  Planes, Trains and Automobiles.  This is the only AI stamp I have that has wheels and is a mode of transportation but hey, it works!  I colored her face with copic markers and the rest is colored with watercolor brush pens from Arteza and a paint brush with water.  The designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  I almost forgot the little flowers are made with a die from MFTStamps.

Hello-Flowers in Bloom


 Hello friends, Happy New Year!  Can you even believe it has been almost a year since I posted?  2020 was a LONG year for us all- I am just glad I had the energy to get in my craft room and craft today.  I am using Flowers in Bloom from MFTStamps, which is new to me.  I colored with copics and used some scrap papers that I had laying around.  Hopefully it won't be forever until I post another card.

Growing Up!

Oh my goodness friends, I finally made back into my crafty space (if you can call it that) to play today- I forced myself!!  Playing with the current MFTStamps sketch challenge.  I colored with copic markers and the paper is from MFTstamps.  I popped the cloud and the balloon up with foam tape.  I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in these crazy times!

Be Still.....


Hope you are not sick of this tulip stamp from Penny Black Stamps, I know I have been using this a LOT in the last couple of weeks but I just love it and find it so relaxing to watercolor.  I colored right on the stamp with markers, first with yellow, then orange and finally red; spritzed with water and stamped after each color.   The sentiment is from Verve stamps and just felt this was a fitting scripture for the times.

First Waltz

T.G.I.F from GA!  Thank the Good Lord we finally have a sunny day!  It is a wicked windy day but at least the sun is shinning!  I had this tulip stamp called First Waltz by PB Stamps sitting on my desk from the other day so I decided to  ink it up again.  Tulips are one of my favorite flowers because they are usually one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring!  I used my Tombow markers and colored right on the stamp, spritz with water and stamped, then I colored again but didn't spritz and stamped again.  I used Orange and Pink on the flower and 2 different shades of green on the stem.
