Stop, Drop and Pray! Also available immediately in digital form.
Same stamp, two completely different looks. The second card also features an embossed background I created using Scribble Flowers. I used distress inks and some daubers to color the heat embossed images.

The pink balloon is a shaker...yes, I need some practice in the sewing department, but I think it was pretty good first attempt. It always makes me happy when I can bring out my little Janome' machine--even happier when I actually manage a reasonable stitch!
My Favorite Things. Check it out!
Have a great day--Jane

I wanted to get some of the new releases from Sweet 'N Sassy stamps inky so, I made this card for my parents to let them know how much I value them and our time together. The sentiment, from Thoughtful Words, continues to the inside and reads (in full) "No words can describe how thankful I am for you."
The central image comes from the Through The Trees set. You can pre-order this set right now! I started by stamping the birch tree image on water color paper and then adding some sky and grass water colors. I framed the tree image with cardstock that I cut an oval out of and then added some stenciling. I sponged some and then added a bit more with a paint brush--it got kind of splotchy, which I think looks cool.
After stamping the sentiment, I added a bird (a heron, I think--of the great blue variety?) from the January Stamp of the month set, Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands. It's kind of an earthy card--I think my folks will love it!
Have yourself an inky kind of day :) TTFN, Jane

Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps recently released Scene Silhouettes: Trees (and a few other wonderful sets) that has me a little outside of my comfort zone. Today, I'm sharing round one. I've stuck mostly to the barren tree and evergreen--consistent with the season. It's -12 here today so, the full trees of spring & summer are just going to have to wait....but, here's the full set and then, some inspiration:
These two cards also feature the new Thoughtful Words set. See below for a look at the whole set.
The "happy birthday" sentiment is found in the Keep In Touch, Too.
Enjoy the New Year, be crafty!
