July Release Sweet Peek Day 5

Today is the 5th day of Sweet peeks leading up to Friday's release. The set being featured today is Reading Bethany. This little bunny is so cute.

I colored Bethany with copics and added some stickles to the bow, butterfly, and flower. The bright cheerful papers are from Echo Park's Summer Days and Splash collections. I used the Sweet Stop sketch for this week as my layout. I am planning on sending this card to my friend Kim who loves to read thanking her for letting my family come and stay with them this past week. I hope she likes it.

Be sure to stop by the Sweet N Sassy blog to see the rest of the wonderful creations that the DT has to share.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

July Release Sweet Peek Day 2

Sweet N Sassy stamps is excited to be releasing 6 fabulous new stamp sets on July 1st. For 6 days prior to the release there will be Sweet Peeks of one new set each day. Today is the second day of Sweet Peeks and we are featuring the cool new Seeing Spots set. What a fun set perfect for creating backgrounds or CAS cards. I am telling you with the insanely busy schedule my family has I am really migrating toward creating simple but stylish cards.

Today's card is a perfect example- very quick and easy to create but not lacking on style. I hope you think so too. Take a peek.

I used some of Echo Park's awesome designer paper in the Dots N Stripes collection. In the center of the polka dots I stamped either "I Love You" or the heart circle in the center of it. So, what a quick and easy card, all I did was dress up the patterned paper to make it my own.

You're a Star!

Well, I have certainly been neglecting my blog here for sure. Almost 2 weeks since my last post, oh brother! I imagine that many of you too have been busy with the last couple weeks of school and the wind down of childrens' activities.

The card I am sharing with you today, I made for a boy whose party my daughters were invited to a couple weeks ago. It started out as a Father's day card but then I realized we needed a card for the party and I added the sentiment which I thought was fitting for a 7 yr old boy.

I colored my Cocoa's Baseball Hat digi with copics, cut it out and adhered with foam tape. I have to admit that I originally had no plans of cutting out the image but unfortunately I oversaturated my paper while coloring and the red bled quite badly over the lines. Red is a tough color to push back with the blender pen and I did try but it was too much to correct so out came the scissors lol. The edges were stitched and buttons and star dies were used as embellishments. I also used some red and white Baker's twine which is now available in many colors from Sweet N Sassy stamps- woohoo!
