Mini Slimline Fun

 Hi friends! today I'm popping in with not just one, but three cards. I combined products from the last couple monthly boxes from Not 2 Shabby. I've really been loving these boxes, although sometimes the next box is here by the time I can get around to stamping with them.

I wanted to use the adorable bear set from the August Box of the Month, so colored up the bear images with Copic markers, then added some accents with a white gel pen.  I cut the images out with my scan 'n cut, then set aside.  Next I pulled out the Pumpkin Marshmallow Slimline Paper Pad from the same box. This pad is pink and brown, but I knew the woodgrain and brown gingham would make for some fun autumn cards. Next I stamped the leaves and sentiment from the Pumpkin Spice Season set, then layered everything together.  

Next up, I used a few of the paper scraps from my previous card to create a layout for this sweet little pumpkin bearing bear. I paired this with the pumpkin and sunflower image and hello friend sentiment from the Bloom and Grow set from the August Box. My background has some splattering on it, then a few rhinestones to finish things off.

My final card for this batch just needed a bit of coffee flair to it.  The mug image is from the previously released Happy Fall set, and I tucked in a leftover leaf from the Pumpkin Spice Season set, and finished with a sentiment from the same set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day. 

White Christmas Love and an IG Hop

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! With summer fading, lots of shops already have their Christmas stamps out. Today, the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team is hosting an Instagram Hop to showcase the Autumn and Christmas releases they've had this month. Be sure to hop over to the SNSS Instagram page and hop along for lots of  inspiration and a chance to win!

My card today started with my Endless Love set, which now has coordinating dies! I colored the floral image With Copic markers then die cut.  The title sentiment from the set is embossed onto white with gold embossing powder.  Next I pulled out the Decorative Frames stamp set and coordinating dies, and embossed the frame, then die cut.

The holly branch is from the gorgeous new Holly Christmas stamp set that just released. I colored it with Copics as well, and then cut with coordinating dies. I wanted those fun images to take center stage, so decided on a white background, dry embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  I then added a thin gold mat and layered all my pieces together to finish off the card.

Well, that's all from me today. I hope you have a fabulously creative day! And if you're in the mood to shop, all of the new release Christmas products are 10% off through September 24, no code needed.
