A New Challenge with a Sweet 'n Sassy Snowman

 Hope you are having a good weekend!  Today I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog with this card.  It was inspired by the newest challenge at 'The Challenge'.  Love this inspiration photo!

Here is the inspiration photo~

Are you a sucker for snowmen???  I know I am!  This brand new one from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, designed by Diane Zechman- Holiday Hugs- is just adorable and sweet.  The sentiment is from another new Christmas set, Christmas Pine.

Inspiration from The Challenge

Hello and Welcome back to another challenge from The Challenge!
This week it is all about an inspiration photo.  I was inspired by the colors of the flowers.

I was pretty stumped at first, not because I do not have a pineapple stamp or because the photo is not inspiring, but because of a continued lack of MOJO.  Here is the inspiration photo~

I used the awesome Scribble Flowers Stamp Set for my card.  They are diecut out with the matching dies.  I stenciled a background, sponging orange inks. 
So put on your thinking caps, it is time to be inspired by this pineapple vase!  Check out all of the inspiration from the rest of the team, and then link up your creation HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

A Penguin Selfie

Hello, Hello and Welcome back for more Christmas inspiration from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

Today we are featuring the cutest set from Diane Zechman, Holiday Hugs~

Seeeeee!???!  Isn't he cute???

I have been wanting to try the "Selfie" tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers and this was the perfect image to do it.
To make my scene, I drew in some snowy hills, added a tree from the Forest Silhouettes Stamp Set, and a pine branch, using the new, Christmas Pine Stamp Set.  I sponged in a sky and colored the penguin with Copics.  Dazzling Details and glitter were added to the pine boughs and tree for icy sparkle.

Anything Goes Christmas

Hi Everyone!

Hope your week is going well.  We have a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and this week it is everyone's favorite, Anything Goes~

Christmas and CAS were my go-tos this week.  I sponged a background  and then heat embossed the pine branch from the new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Set, Christmas Pine, in gold ep.  I spritzed the background with water and then spritzed with watered down white acrylic paint.  Added the sentiment and then more watered down paint.  The sentiment is from Vintage Ornaments.
Hope to see you in the gallery! You can check out the rest of the design team inspiration, then link up your creation HERE!

Colors, Cupcakes and The Challenge

Hello and Welcome back to another challenge at 'The Challenge'!

This week is all about colors and the ones Lesley selected are wonderful!

Here are those amazing colors!

This Unity image is colored with Copics.  Nothing fancy here as I am still waiting for my MOJO to return from where ever it has gone.  Until then, I am relying on inspiration from other places.  Today's card was inspired by the MOJO Monday sketch this week~

I am also linking up to Seize the Birthday~ 'Anything Goes',
and 'Just Us Girls'- 'Use Sequins'.  Seems I can not NOT use sequins these days, LOL!

Have a blessed weekend!

Sweet 'n Sassy Country Pine

Hello, and Happy Friday!

We continue to feature the new Christmas release over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  This week's stamp set was right up my alley.  I love trees, leaves, etc so the Christmas Pine was a 'must have'.

The sentiment is from the new, Christmas Borders set; it is stamped in red and embossed in clear ep. I thought a bit of holly and mistletoe would be perfect for a little variety in my spray so I used one of the border stamps in the Christmas Borders set for that as well.  The kraft background was done with the second sentiment in the Christmas Borders set.  The pine boughs and pine cones are done with the new Christmas Pine set.   I used the smaller of the two pine boughs and the smallest of the 3 pine cones.
I am linking  this card up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- 'use stamps',
and Just Add Ink- Just Add 'P' (Pine cones and Pine branches).

Thanks so much for stopping by- have a wonderful weekend!

The Reason for the Season

Hello All!  I hope your Labor Day Weekend was a relaxing one!

Today I am sharing a card that is up on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog today.  It features one of the new stamp sets from this month's Christmas Release, Receive the Savior.  This set is simply beautiful~

I colored the image with Copics- the E40s- and kept the card simple to showcase the image.  The sentiment is from the Born This Day Stamp Set
