Hi friends! It's time for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps May Inspiration Hop over on Instagram. Click on over to my IG feed to hop along for a chance to win a $25 gift code to the SNSS shop.

I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for background stamps. 😍And boy, is this month's NEW Shiplap Background fabulous! It's a 6x6" set, perfect for covering an entire card front, and the detail in the wood grain is fabulous.  

For this card I stamped the background in weathered wood distress oxide, and the results made me gasp! It was that easy!  All the things need to be shiplapped now.  LOL!

The new Mixed Up Stencil has a mish mash of encouraging words, but I decided to mask off all but the word CREATE. Once everything was masked off I used mini blending brushes to blend a rainbow with kitsch flamingo, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, salvaged patina, and shaded lilac distress oxide.  Then before I pulled up the stencil, I wiped it clean and added a layer of Stickles Moon Dust Glitter Gel for a whole lot of sparkle. The paintbrush is from the previously released In His Image set (still a fave of mine). I colored it with Copic markers then fussy cut and glued below the sentiment.  I finished by adding the sentiment panel on dimensional foam, as well as matting the layers with black cardstock

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your day is super creative!

Diamond Tile Hello

 Hi friends! I've been a bit under the weather this week, but am starting to feel better, so I took a little time to photograph some of the cards I've been making.  I'm not sure why that's the part of the blogging process that always holds me up, but it is what it is.  LOL.  Anyway today's card features the Diamond Tile Stencil, God is Faithful Bundle, and Script Sentiments from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

My process started with the background, first lightly blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink onto a white card stock panel, fading to white on the one side.  I then placed the Diamond Tile Stencil over it and stenciled with the same color ink  lightening up the pressure as I moved across the panel to continue the fade.

The beautiful floral image from God is Faithful is colored with Copic markers in pinks and purples, then cut with the coordinating dies.  I also cut the floral shape from plain cardstock a couple of times and layered them together to give some dimension.

The sentiment panel is stamped with the hello from Script Sentiments, then I added a couple sprigs from the God is Faithful set on eighter side for embellishment.  I finished with some black matting to make things pop and a few small rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative day!
