SNSS Leaves and Forest Silhouettes ~

Good morning everyone! Who is ready for some leafy inspiration! Sweet'nSassy recently released some amazing new dies for current sets available in the store.
My first card is using the leaf silhouettes and newly released matching leaf silhouette dies! I layered these squares onto the leaf skeleton background that is perfect for quick colourful and textured coverage.

The second card is using the falling leaves stamp set with the Forest silhouette dies! I love the look of these images against the sponged background. For the "floor" I sprinkled some stampendous embossing fragments, tinsel and powders and melted them all together. I adhered the deer to the floor with the leaves falling gently. So serene. 

Have a wonderful Day!

Materials used: 
stamps: Falling leaves, Skeleton leaf BG, Leaf silhouettes
Paper: SU 
Inks: Versafine inks, SU inks, Ranger distress inks
Accessories: Stampendous powders, SU punch

We Remember ~

Today, America and the World remembers. Poignant in the memory of that morning 13 years ago, let us continue to lift up this Nation, the families who lost loved ones and the many heroes who still remember that day as if it were yesterday. 

Our flag flies at half-mast today in a Prayerful reminder.
God Bless America.

SNSS Kindness ~

 photo SNSSKindnessSept3.jpg 
Good morning Sweet'nSassy fans! My card uses Kindness set with matching dies. I loved the Stamp Etching tutorial featured on Splitcoaststampers and have wanted to give this a shot with some of these lovely flowers. What do you think? Why not give it a try? 

I "etched" the blooms using fine line marker after I die cut them. Next I snipped them further into the centres and shaped them using my flower molding mat and stylus tools. I layered some and left some as is. Each centre is filled by adhering sequins that I got from my CTMH friend and consultant Krista. The leaves are a sneak peek from the upcoming Sept. release. 

Materials used:
Stamps: Kindness
Paper: SU, Little Yellow Bicycle
Inks: Versafine black, SU fine tip marker
Accessories: Kindness Flower/Clover dies, Leaf silhouette dies, CTMH sequins, molding mat and tool kit.
