He lives ~ SC377, CC367

stamps: He Lives
Papers: MME, SU dsp, SU
Inks: Copics, Memento, Versafine
Accessories: SNS dies, Spellbinder dies, SU punch
 Love this Sweet ‘n Sassy set titled He Lives…It speaks clearly the message of why we have this hope within us. HE lives in us.

I created this card utilizing two challenges from this week over at Splitcoaststamper. The colours worked right into the image I wanted to use…I love when things work out like that! Check these challenges out over at SCS and join in the creative fun!

I coloured the cross using Copics and sponged all the layers with the colourbox chalk inks. The scalloped dies from SNS worked into the sketch as well.

Thanks for joining me today! Have a great day!

Krafty Everyday Miracles ~

stamps: everyday  miracles
papers: MME, SU Kraft
Inks: Memento, copics, versafine
accessories: stitching, ms punch, su punch,  pearls, seam binding ribbon
Over at Splitcoaststampers SNSS members forum, Cathy hosted a challenge to create a card using Kraft CS/ is my submission to that challenge. I must say, I always reach for the vanilla or white cs for my base but hardly ever with the Kraft. This challenge was enough to think beyond the usual.

This card uses the Everyday miracles set from includes four beautiful sentiments and another butterfly. I created this card on Kraft and layered my MME dp and stitched the layers. I stamped the butterfly on the CS and layered the copic coloured version atop that and curled the wings a little. The sentiment is punched with my wide oval from SU. The ribbon is my stash of seam binding that I found for a steal! yay me.

Thank you for stopping by!

 Love this Morning Glory set released earlier this year! I was inspired by last weeks Hump Day Challenge over at Splitcoast on the SNSS member forum to stitch our cards, needless to say, I didn't finish during the challenge week but here it is.

Rhubarb's Birthday Wish ~ Taylor's challenge

Rhubarb's Birthday Challenge ~ Use a Die Cut challenge
SNSSMAR12RP01 ~ DT Member Taylor's Challenge
The adorable Rhubarb is available for order! Released on March 1st, Rhubarb's Birthday Wish has three images and five sentiments all applicable for birthday, well wishes and hugs. You can order it at

My card uses the image bearing a serving of birthday cake. I coloured him using my copics and used the birthday embossing folder on the green panel. To tie it all together, I pulled out my twine that matched his party hat perfectly.

Thanks for joining me and if you were not at the Release Party, you can still catch up on the conversations and fun interaction with the DT and splitcoast stampers. We had a great time!

To Paris with Love ~ Release Party Challenges

To Paris with love ~ CASE A DT Challenge (Kim Singdahlson)
SNSSMAR12RP02 by DT member CathyMac
I love this new set! To Paris with Love, now available to order on the SweetnSassy website. This collage style stamp is styled so you could use it a variety of ways using techniques that bring colour, CAS cards, layer and give dimension, scrapbook your trip to Paris....ooolala.

To Paris with love ~ Vintage Lace and Distressing Challenge
SNSSMAR12RP03 by DT member Monika
This card uses To Paris with Love - again! Love the incredible detail that Korin designed on this stamp, the amazing background inscription, the cancellation stamp, the airmail sticker, roses and the eiffel tower. Very vintage looking. I kept the colours soft and kinda monotone with a bit of vintage lace peeking beneath the frame and added the fluffy, distressed looking rosette on the corner for added effect.

Hope these cards inspire you to create your own cards! Upload your cards to the member forum on Splitcoaststampers and be sure to use keywords SNSS or sweetnsassy so we don't miss what you create!
