SNSS Celebrating You ~

Good Morning! I want to share this fun and easy card I created using the fun SNSS Lots-a-Spots set! I created this very quickly by stamping these directly on designer paper. I created matching fishtail banners by hand and stamped the sentiment by curling it into an oval and finished it with an SU oval punch. I embellished the banners by wrapping them all with black bakers twine. 

Be sure to come back tomorrow for another Bloghop from Sweet'nSassy's  recent Spring release. It all begins at 8am here and on the company blog. If you participated in the challenge from the previous week, you will want to see if you won!!! Yes, there's prizes awarded each week.

Materials Used:
Stamps: LotsaSpots
Inks: Versafine black, SU Baja Breeze
Paper: Authentique, SU

SNSS Jesus Paid it All~

Good morning everyone! I would like to share three cards made with He Lives stamp set. All three cards are created by watercolouring the image and using the matching die to cut it out. For the first card, I created a mask using a straight edge of paper and moving it as I sponged my colour to create the rays. The mound of dirt is from the Calvary die that I cut three times. The verse from one of the beloved easter hymns is from the matching Jesus Paid it all stamp set.

My second card is stamped the same way, except  I created an early morning sunrise sponging various inks. The sentiment is from the He lives set.  

Finally, my third card is another glorious morning card depicting the cross of the Risen Christ and His crown of thorns. To create a faux stitched look, I used a rotary tracing wheel. Thanks Diane!
He lives, He Lives, Christ Jesus Lives today!

Materials used:
Stamps: He Lives, Jesus Paid it All
Paper: SU
Inks: Ranger Inks - Mustard Seed, Barn door, Fired brick, Brushed Corduroy, Versafine Black, Memento grape jelly, rosebud
Accessories: SNSS Rugged Cross die, Calvary die, tracing wheel
