Llama Love x 2

I have two cute  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps cards for you today using this adorable Lama Love set by KorinSutherland. This set is just to cute for words!
For this first card I stamped and embossed the images, I had to do a little masking but not a lot.  I stamped and embossed the hats and fussy cut them.  The papers are from Echo Park.
For this card I wanted to use up some cute scraps that I had (I just hate throwing away cute paper don't you!).  All the paper is from Pink Pasilee.   Make sure you check out the whole release this month so many awesome sets!  Remember you can get this month's stamp of the month set- Give Thanks (shown below) when you spend $75 after any discounts and before shipping.

No Prob-Llama!

Ha, Ha... I love this new stamp set called Llama Love from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I went in JoAnn Fabrics yesterday to get a couple sheets of paper for a project I needed to get in the mail.  Well.... I found this adorable pad of designer paper called NoProb-Llama and I just had to have it.  Lucky for me the pads are buy one get one free this week and, and I had a coupon for 20% off your order (my first senior discount- ACK!). At least the girl at the checkout questioned my age so I felt better!   I colored with watercolors and well the paper is from DCWV.  Remember if you spend $75 you get the stamp of the month for free and this month's is a beautiful set for fall- see picture below.

Christmas Wishes

I know, it's early but is it ever really to early to be thinking about Christmas Cards?  I made a quick and easy card today using Peace of God from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, this is not a Christmas set but thought this cute Tit-mouse would look adorable on a Christmas Card.  I used one of the sentiments from We Three Kings.  I colored with copics, added stickles to the berries for some sparkle and the paper is from MFT.

So Blessed...




Hello Sweet friends,  today I am showcasing a card made using Go God's Way, I just love this set but I especially love the bike.  I stamped the bike onto designer paper and loved how it looked so I decided it didn't need to be colored.  The sentiment is from Thoughtful Words that has so many wonderful combinations.  Make sure you check out this month's stamp of the month-Texture Tiles 3  which is free with $75 purchase and also check out the Deals and Discount section- so many great bargains.  I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!

Love you for always~!

I know what you are thinking.... WHY is she doing a Valentine's Day card in July?  Well, it looks like one but it does not have to be one!  I am using the stamp set called Happy Together from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I LOVE Silhouette Stamps because they make for quick and easy cards.  The paper is from my scrap basket.  This is an older stamp set but make sure you check out this month's new releases at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, it is AMAZING!
