Hello, Sweet Friends and Happy Monday! It's been a busy few weeks over in my little neck of the woods, graduating and celebrating my girl! Now that the party is over (thanks to all who came!), I'm taking a "me" day and trying to get caught up on other things I love....Like this beautiful new release from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps called Teacup Roses. This is such a fun image to color and makes the sweetest cards of encouragement, thanks, birthday and so much more!
My first card features a bible page in addition to the beautiful teacup image. I love to pick up aged bibles at thrift stores to use in my art. They make great backgrounds as well as come in quite handy for mixed media canvas art.

Happy Monday, Sweet Friends!! Everything about this card says summer and freedom! Dare to be different, my friends!!
I created the super colorful background using my Gelli Arts gelli plate, a bunch of different paints, some stencils and a few texturizing foam pieces. The focal images are from Sweet and Sassy Stamp's Be A Flamingo stamp set.
It's good advice for a Monday morning.....don't you think?

I'm really getting into scrap booking again--Sweet N Sassy Stamp's Brotherly Love makes it all sorts of simple! I recall, back in the heyday of my prime scrapping--I'd search forever for the exact piece of paper and the perfect embellishment. Now, I have it all right at my fingertips with just a few stamp sets and my hoarded stash of paper!
To complete the above 8 x 8 page, I used Brotherly Love, Shake It Off Lowercase Alphabet, Bitty Minnie Alpha, Mini Grunge Type Alpha and Scripty Thoughts (All from Sweet N Sassy Stamps--check it out!)
Super Dad. Now IS the time to grap that set for $5!! Be sure to check out all of the $5 sets--Don't miss out!

The above card features the new release, Free Indeed, from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps! I embossed the firework image on kraft card stock and then applied various distress inks to make the image pop. To complete the card, I added images from Love Your Neighbor. I stamped the images on water color paper and used the same inks to add color before trimming and adding to the card. You'll find "celebrate" in the sweet Rebecca Rios set, also from SNSS, called Fly High.
Free Indeed and is combined with images from Congrats Grad. To color this card, I used Brusho pigment powders for a vibrant pop of color. I finished the card by adding Distress Glaze which really polishes the colors and keeps them vibrant even after drying. Be sure to check things out over at Sweet N Sassy Stamps--it's customer appreciation week and that only means good things for you!!
I hope your summer is filled with fun times and some relaxation too!
Be Awesome, Jane

In a busy life, one of my greatest sources of relaxation and restoration is creating with goodies from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps. June's release is super fantastic--I cannot get enough of the Be A Flamingo stamp set.
Brusho inks. I love the way it turned out--Brusho's are finicky (or maybe its my skill level) but I love that in some ways. Life is often unexpected and you have to deal with what you've got--right? You just never quite know until you get there! I doubt I could recreate this background again, but--that's part of the fun of art--of each piece, every one is unique! Just like us!
Have a great day!! Make it Flamazing--Jane
