Sweet'nSassy Spring Tulips ~

So blessed beyond measure! Happy Saturday Friends of Sweet'nSassy! featuring Spring Tulips which happens to be this weeks Friday Feature for only $7!!! That's incredible! Hurry if you are thinking of purchasing one, these features move fast. Now is the time to begin thinking about those spring cards, Easter is early this year! I took one of the sentiments from the Adoption set for a cause aptly named The gift of You to complete my card. There are numerous sentiments in this great set that are suitable for other occasions.

I created a 51/2 x 51/2" square card from Very Vanilla cardstock. I layered coordinating papers from MME's Mabel 6x6 paper pad. These are perfect warm colours for a cold day! I stamped the tulips using memento ink and coloured with Copics. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them onto the script paper from MME that I cut into a fish tail banner. I layered this onto the Italian Flourish doily. To embellish this, I cut into my brand new tulle ribbon that I scored from my friend Krista! I added a brad in the centre. I stamped the sentiment using versafine black and cut it out and placed it as I tag onto the tulips. Love how it turned out! 
Why not make a spring card today? 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a warm day :)

Heartfelt You are the Light ~

Happy Heartfelt Wednesday everyone!!! I cannot believe we are beyond the middle of January already! The temps are frigid this week so maybe a lantern from by gone days will bring some warmth. I remember lanterns similar to this growing up in Northwestern Ontario where we never heard of electricity. Growing up by candle light was a novelty and you were rich if you could afford these fancy lanterns. I love the nostalgia in images such as these. You can find more like it here.
The second card features the sentiment from another great precut set. Sometimes we need a simple card to say what our heart feels, this sentiment would be perfect for someone in transition or someone needing affirmation.

My cards and the rest of the Design Team's creations are featured on the Heartfelt Blog. You will find complete instructions on each card or layout. 

Thank you and have a blessed day! Stay warm :)

SNSS Cocoa's Heart ~

Good Morning! My card features the newly released Cocoa's Heart The January releases from Sweet'nSassy and the five day mini blog hops were fun and inspiring. I hope you were able to comment on the blogs to win some prizes!

My love for Cocoa goes back before I was on any of SNSS design teams. I fell in love with this sweet mouse at my LSS and the rest is history as the saying goes. I coloured this image using copics and cut him out by hand. I added some heart and scallop border dies to my design. This heart die matches the newly released Bottom of my heart set which creates some awesome "to die for" hearts. I stamped three rows of xoxo's amidst the music notes for some romantic flair.

Have a great day!!!

Materials used:
Stamps: Cocoa's Heart, Bottom of my Heart
Dies: Hearts, Scallop border die
Paper: EP, MME, SU
Inks: Versafine ink, Memento Ink, Copics
Accessories: Seam binding ribbon

SNSS Day 4 January Release ~

This release has been so much fun to work with I cannot decide if I have a favourite. Each set I work with becomes another favourite. 

My Card is 5.5x5.5 square. I chose a 1/4 square of a 12x12 designer paper from Creative Imaginations. This gorgeous paper framed my die cut hearts so beautifully. I cut the square down so I could layer it onto matching card stock before I adhered it onto my early espresso card base. The sentiment is stamped using Red Riding Hood ink and the hearts are stamped in 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping using Red Riding hood, Rose Red and Early Espresso Inks. I sponged the edges of the hearts using early espresso. I placed the varied hearts and used dimensionals  for added dimension. Bottom of my Heart is combined with it's matching heart dies.

Today's Feature Set Is...Bottom of  My Heart
  • Includes 9 images and 8 sentiments

SNSS Day 2 January Release ~

Good morning everyone! My first sample is using the Long stem Silhouettes. I stamped the flower in rich razzleberry and always artichoke inks and created a shadow by stamping the stems 2nd and 3rd generation. I added pearls to the centres of the blooms. I corner rounded the stamped image and layered the piece on to fancy tags die cut in half. I added the seam binding ribbon around the stamped long stems. Love the elegant feel to this card. 
My second card is using another of the long stemmed silhouettes and layered this one on to lace doily square. I sponged the edges with baja breeze ink and then added some sparkle on the blooms using stickles.
