Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day


It's release day again at Sweet 'n Sassy and I'm so excited to share this month's stamps and cards with you!  We have a great release, blog hop, and party planned for you that is full of fun, prizes, and lots of creativity!  Make sure to join us at 8:00 pm for our release party on our Splitcoast Forum.  We always have a wonderful time and we'll be posting lots of challenges and all of the new stamp sets!

My cards feature the new sets Timeless Classics (seen above) and Wedding Cake (seen below).  For my Father's Day card (and PS - I am simply crazy about the fonts included in this set!) I used wonderful vintage paper from Graphic 45 in the background and then created my own patterned paper by stamping the gear image multiple times on white cardstock using VersaMark ink.  I then embossed with clear embossing powder and added color with Distress Inks.  The embossed area resists the ink to showcase the stamped images.  The truck was colored with Copics, keeping the colors simple so stay with that vintage feel.  I then added a few stars from the Star Die Set.

For my wedding cake card I used some new stunning paper from Teresa Collins.  I just picked this up last week and couldn't wait to use it!  I like the blue and yellow color combo for a wedding...so summery!  I simply stamped the lovely cake image on white cardstock and colored with Copics.  The sentiment is stamped on a paper ribbon and I added a big 'ol frame of pearls to showcase that pretty dragonfly paper and image.  I also added a little sparkle to each of the flowers with Stickles.

I hope you've enjoyed today's cards and now you can check out the rest of the design team's beautiful artwork!  Don't forget to stop by the release party tonight and if you leave a comment on each of the blogs on our hop, you'll be entered into a drawing to win the ENTIRE release!  Yippee!!

I'm so glad to see your idea using the vintage truck image. I like your gear embossing resist background. Making the truck red reallys set it off. That's the set I really want to get for my hubby.
