SCRAPS from my bin!

Hello  friends, today I decided to use papers from my scrap bin.  I promised myself at the beginning of this year to use up all scraps and is just seems that my scrap bin keeps getting bigger and bigger.   I am using Fill Me Up for my card today, love this set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.   I did all paper piecing on this card, no coloring!  I think I will buy a $10 Starbucks card and give it to someone in line behind me next time I go. :)  I love this set, it is great for card making or bible journaling.

splattered

Hello friends, it seems like forever since I posted anything.  Hubby and I were away on vacation.  I am home for a few weeks before we leave again.  Today I decided to play with Long Stem Silhouettes from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, I colored the image with water color markers and spritzed with water and stamped onto water color paper.  The striped paper is from The Paper Studios.  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is back open for business after a brief closing so Korin and her family could get settled into their new home.  There are some great deals going on, you can check them all out HERE

You are AMAZING!

Hello, here with a card using one of the new release sets All About You and an older set called Floral Greetings.  I love both of these sets, All About you has lots of awesome sentiments and I love the flowers and sentiments in Floral Greetings.  This card came together quickly since there was no coloring involved, I stamped and embossed.   Please keep Korin and her family in your thoughts and prayers as they move to their new home this weekend.

Friendship

A little de-stressing today in the crafty room.   In the middle of some work being done in the house and I have had no doors on my kitchen cabinets for going on 3 weeks now as they are being re-done and all my drawers are empty.  I am not one for the open shelf look that is for sure!  Every time I need a utensil I have to go into the spare bedroom to get it- what a pain!    I snuck into my craft room and made a card to day those doors and drawers are next!  I love this sentiment and flower stamp  both from Penny Black.

Sweet As Honey!

Amen to that verse!  I am in love with this new set called Sweet As Honey now available in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store!  I stamped the honeycomb using distress inks and then sponged with more distress ink and then used a heart shaped die cut to cut it out.  I colored the bee with Copics and added some stickles to the wings for a little sparkle.  This set comes with 3 great scripture verses and a bunch of other sentiments, which makes it great for card making and even bible journaling!  Make sure you check out the other New Release HERE, some great new sets this month!

He Will

Decided to get the watercolors out today!  I just find water coloring so relaxing!  Today I am using Fantastic Flowers  from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, which is a new release and I have paired it with an older set, Be Encouraged.  this is one of my favorite quotes and sometimes it is a hard on to grasp.  We know he can but sometimes we wonder if he will, but...HE ALWAYS DOES!  I stamped onto watercolor paper and used watercolor markers and a paintbrush, distressed the edges and added some pearls!
