Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Capture the Moment

Can this stamp set be on my list of most favorite sets ever!? Oh my, the tiny selfie frame is darling! So many possibilities!

Guess what, friends? It's Sweet 'n Sassy release day! Today we're releasing the darling new Capture the Moment set, which features camera images, the selfie frame, and a whole bunch of sweet sentiments. See the entire set below:
Since any good photo should contain a picture of something or someone, I had to include some furry (and feathery) friends from the Valentine Critters and Get Well Critters stamp sets.

I stamped the frame three times, cut it out and attached a background by coloring a piece of card stock with Distress Ink. The critters were stamped, colored with Copics, and cut out. Then all of the pieces were assembled into tiny photos. I used the little tape image (can't even stand it...too cute!) to create name labels.

Once my critters were finished I got to work on the background, which I created by stamping all of the sentiments multiple times in VersaMark and embossing with white embossing powder. A little water coloring made all of the white embossed images pop right off the page!

I assembled the card by attaching the water colored piece on to a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card base and attaching the photos with foam tape. The little flashbulb bursts were also fussy cut and attached to the photos. I added a tiny bit of shimmer with a Wink of Stella glitter pen, which is tough to see in the photo.

That's it for me today, folks! Head over to Sweet 'n Sassy and grab yourself one of these sets...who can live without it! 

Happy Crafting!

Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - How Tweet

Hi all! Time for a brand new stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy! This week's featured set is How Tweet...and seriously, how 'tweet' is this little bird image?! Love him! 

My card is a super quick and easy card and features a fun sentiment idea that I lifted from Jennifer McQuire (you can see her video here). While my card differs from hers, I loved the way that she repeatably stamped the sentiment to create a background. 

I used a variety of blue Distress Inks for the sentiment and just eyeballed the placement. My birdie and clouds were stamped on scrap cardstock, and colored with Copic markers. I used foam tape to pop them up on the card and create dimension. The tiny hearts were stamped directly onto the cardstock, and also colored with Copics. I then added a bit of shimmer and glossy accents to the hearts and bird's cheeks to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project! You could use them same sentiment idea to create so many wonderful backgrounds..give it a try!

Also, be sure to stop by the Sweet 'n Sassy store to grab this brand new set!

Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Inspirational Word Art 2

Hi all! Welcome to the first October stamp set release from Sweet 'n Sassy! Today we're announcing the released of the Inspirational Word Art set, a set filled with six sentiments, all designed to offer encouragement.

I tried a fun technique on today's card...I first stamped four different background stamps onto white card stock and then cut each of the four designs into a variety of strips.
Once the strips were cut, I added adhesive to another piece of white card stock and added the strips, alternating the designs. The finished piece was layered onto a piece of blue card stock, and then my sentiment was added. I also adhered a few silver stars on the sentiment banner.

A quick and easy card, and I'm left with a lot more strips to make more backgrounds! This was a really fun technique and a great way to get more use out of your background stamps.

A list of the products that I used is below. Be sure to check out the rest of the Sweet 'n Sassy design team projects today, featuring the Inspirational Word Art stamp set!

Happy Crafting!
