November Release Hop-Sweet N Sassy Stamps


Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps November Release Hop! We're celebrating 13 years of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month! Hop along with us as we celebrate and share our projects from the fabulous November release with you! Don't forget to leave a little comment love for the designers linked below for a chance to be entered into our giveaway drawing for a $25 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, November 25.


The November release has been super fun to play around with!  I had been missing the long retired set, Birthday Bash for quite some time (who remembers that one??).  The new Make a Wish and Bold Birthdays are the perfect remix and blend of new for lots of great celebration creations!!


I used a variety of ink pads to create this fun background.  The rainbow sentiment was easy to make using the same ink pads and my MISTI stamp positioning tool.  I could not stamp with out that thing!


Those two desserts are super fun to color--and, they make me hungry!  I stamped each on water color paper and used distress inks to watercolor.

Don't forget to leave some love--you could be the winner of a $25 gift card--how cool is that?

You're off to see what Karen is sharing--enjoy the rest of the hop!

Birthday Bash

 


Hello Sweet Friends!!  We are celebrating 13 years at Sweet N Sassy Stamps with a birthday bash!!  C'mon and join us!  I made this fun card with the Make a Wish set, seen above!


The Stamp of the Month is equally fabulous!!


I've combined it with the sunflower from Like a Sunflower for a sweet, fall themed card.

October Recap--Sweet N Sassy Stamps


 Hello!!!  I'm irritated with myself as I've become a very irresponsible blogger!!  I'm out here loving life and finding that I'd much rather make and send cards than talk about them.  I have been using my instagram also (stampymom5) as it seems like a much easier/quicker platform to share in.  BUT, I'm going to use one post to get caught up with my Sweet N Sassy Stamps shares and attempt to be much better in the coming months, in using my blog.

The first two cards in this post feature the Welcome Home set, along with sentiments from Christmas Wordfetti and Friendship is a Blessing.  I've also used Christmas Text Background.

These cute little gnomes are sure to steal your heart:

                                        

Sets used:  Winter Gnomes, Snow Much Fun and All About You

I also managed some bible journaling in October featuring I Am, Name Above All Names, Note This and The Good News.

I'll see you again soon! (fingers crossed)  Jane

September Release Hop: SNSS

 

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps September Release Hop! There's another fabulous release in the SNSS shop that we've been stamping with and we're so excited to share our projects with you! Hop along and leave a little comment love for the designers linked below and you might just be a lucky winner! One lucky comment from all the comments along the hop will win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, September 30.


My first project is a slimline card featuring Scene Silhouettes:  Jesus Is Born along with Christmas Wordfetti.  
Distress oxide inks are perfect for creating the night sky.  A few sprinkles of water creates interest and texture.

The new Christmas Gnomes set is super adorable!  The images are fun to color and combine perfectly with the September Stamp of the Month, Holiday Greetings.

Like I said, so much fun to color!!  This slimline card also features Christmas Text in the background windows, showing off those cute little Gnomes.


You are off to your next stop, Karen's blog.  I hope you are feeling inspired and ready to get inky!!

Battles


Hey, Friends!!  I wanted to pop on the blog today because I realize, I just haven't been. Some things have fallen away for me in this last season; unfortunately blogging has been one of them. Instagram has become a quicker platform for me to share my art when I'm lacking words.  And, this most recent season of all things different and covid has often left me without words.  If you want to follow me on Instagram, I sure would love to meet you there. You can find me @stampymom5

I spent some time in 2 Timothy when I created this bible journal page.  Truthfully, I didn't love it and wasn't planning to share it.  The ink is messy and dirty looking--off balance and not what I wanted.  It doesn't line up and certainly wasn't at all what I had in mind.  Kinda just like life. Right?  So, I decided to share it anyway because, art reflects life and likely no more so than in this offering and a time such as this.  

In a world full of division and strife; in the healing and the hurting, I pray you will be encouraged by Paul's words:

Soldier of Christ--be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus!

Share in suffering, aiming to please the One who has enlisted you!

The Lord will give you understanding in everything.  Seek Him.  Paul provides much encouragement and direction for us with his words which are just as relevant today as they were when he wrote them.    I hope that you will spend some time with Paul soaking it in.

Stamps sets from Sweet N Sassy Stamps that I used include:  Grace Upon GraceThe  Lord's Battle  and Texture Tiles 1

Thanks for stopping; may you see the faithfulness of our Lord today and for all the tomorrows, Jane

My first card features the Like a Sunflower set.  All three sunflower images were stamped and trimmed from water color paper.  I used several different distress inks to color each flower and added them to the slimline card design.  I added a few sentiments from Faith Wordfetti to finish the card off.


My second card is made with the Stamp of the Month, Coffee Talk set.  It's so cute--it just makes me giggle!

  

My final card uses the new GG: Christian Love digi and a sentiment from Be Encouraged.


You are off to Karen's blog!  Enjoy!!
