Happy July 4th!! Today I'm excited to share two news bits...First, I've rejoined the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team! I've been with the team for years now, but stepped down after our CT move. Now that we're back home, and live has kind of slowed down (not really), I decided to pick up some stamps again. Second, Sweet 'n Sassy just released a brand new stamp set, Summer Fun Winnie. This sweet set, perfect for all your patriotic themed cards, features 25 images and sentiments. The set measured 6"x4" and retails for $15.95.
My card started with a kraft base and a whole lotta kraft stars! The stars were die cut using the Stars Die Set, which includes four different sized stars. I used a Xyron machine to turn the stars into stickers, which made adhering them to the card base super quick and easy.
The Winnie image was stamped on Strathmore Mixed Media paper and colored with Distress Markers and a water brush. (I scribble the marker color on a non-stick craft sheet and then use the water brush to pick up the color and apply to the image.) I added a few highlights to Winnie before cutting her out. The banner is a separate image and the word celebrate, also a separate image, was created to perfectly fit inside the banner...cool, huh? And the banner fits inside Winnie's hands!
The sentiment tag was also die cut from kraft cardstock, and I stamped the words Independence Day in Archival Ink. The tiny banner, stamped on the sentiment tag, is also in the new set. Lots of different design options with this new set!
Once everything was stamped, cut, and colored I mounted the pieces onto a piece of checkered designer paper and added a few rhinestones. The full stamp set is shown below. Hope you enjoyed today's card!
