Addicted to Stamps Challenge and My Fave Bird!

Hello All!
Happy Tuesday to you!  The challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps is to 'Make Your Mark'.

I must say, this was so doggoned fun to make!  Love him (or her) upside down!  This sweet bird is from one of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps newest stamp sets, How Tweet.  I simply stamped him upside down, drew in the wire, colored with Copics and then masked the bird to sponge in the sky.
The sentiment is from the set, LOL Cats.   The stitched edge was done using a stitched edge die from Lawn Fawn.  The image panel is popped up using a piece of craft foam; that is a Jennifer McGuire trick.  :)

I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch~

 I love CAS cards when they turn out how you envisioned them!

Hop over to the blog to check out the rest of the inspiration from the team, then join us and link up your creation!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas with The Challenge

Good Morning and Happy Saturday, Everyone! 

We have a new challenge today at The Challenge; this week it is Christmas inspiration~

Unfortunately, I could not get a good pic of this card to save my life.  It is much prettier irl.
Here is your inspiration photo

I used a NBUS Christmas tree from WPLus9; I bet I have had this stamp set for at least 3 years.  Not sure what I was waiting for!  The 'merry' die is SU.  The diecut is from red cardstock and coated in clear embossing powder.  For some reason it wanted to photograph very dark.

I added some PTI vellum, washi tape and SSS sequins to finish it off. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you check out all of the team's inspiration HERE and then link up your creation!

Have a blessed weekend!

New Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today I am featuring the newest stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Living Water.  It was designed for Bible journaling, but works great for cards as well!

With multiple different 'water images', 'cloud images' and sentiments, you really can't go wrong. 
This sentiment speaks to me; it is a wonderful reminder of the Grace that God offers us- something I so often forget. 
The background was made with distress inks, the sentiment heat embossed in white.  The sun is from the set Happy Happy.   And how about those clouds!?  Cute, no?! 
Finished the card off with a few of my favorite sequins from SSS. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

By the Sea with The Challenge

Hello All! 
Anyone glad it is the weekend???  I know I am!  And the best part about this weekend is that I have no plans!  I hope to get lots of things done, including catching up on crafting.  Last week I missed The Challenge as I just ran out of time and cardmaking MOJO. 

Here is your inspiration photo~

I used one of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Stamp Sets, Beauty by the Sea.  
The sentiment is from the Precious Poppies Stamp Set. A few paint 
spatters, a few sequins and a few seed beads finish it off!

I was inspired to try the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch~

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

A 'Tweet' New Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Set!

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today we are featuring one of the new Stamp Sets at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, How Tweet!

And it really is SWEET!

I am crazy over this adorable bird!  He is perfect to pair with the Scribble Flower Stamp Set, which I have done here.
This is quite the mixed media card.  I started with a panel I had sitting on my desk, which was made with Colorburst, clear embossing paste and gold embossing powder.
I was inspired by the sketch at Fusion Card Challenge, so die cut a circle from the panel.  To have my elements fit the sketch, I rotated the sketch 90 degrees. 

The tweet bird is colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  Did you notice the googlie eyes I added?   I had him sit on a 'branch'  from the Scribble Flowers set that is embossed in gold.

I am also linking up to The Mixed Media Card Challenge, which is 'Purple and Black'.

I challenged myself to NOT make a Halloween card in using these colors.  I am happy with how it turned out.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!

Chicks and Scoops

Hi everyone! 

Just a quick post tonight to share a card I made for FUN.  Trying to get the MOJO back and coloring seems to be doing the trick.  I joined The Card Concept and Sketch Saturday with this card~

I finally inked up this darling Stamping Bella image.  Clearly it was perfect for The Card Concept Challenge.

 I used the clean and layered style for this card and used this sketch~

Thanks for popping in!

Single Layer Card- Woot!

Happy Hump Day, Everyone!

I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as far as the lack of crafty MOJO goes.  This NBUS image from Unity was calling my name to be colored. 

I was inspired by the woodland colors at Sunday Stamps

And I am pretty stinkin' proud of myself as this is a single layer card.  I almost always make a mistake and have to cut the image out or add layers.
This card is going to my niece who is in her first year of college, enjoying the fall weather in South Dakota.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed rest of the week!

An Inspirational Photo

Hello Everyone!

It is time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps.  This week we have a spooky photo for you!

And your inspirational photo~

This was so much fun to make, and with the awesome SugarPea Designs Die, it was super easy too! 

Throwing a Little Color on My Comfort Zone

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Today's card was an experiment to break out of a crafting rut. It is also for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog.  It was time to get out of my comfort zone.

Some days I seem to be able to use water color mediums, and other days I do not.  I was determined to used the powdered water colors- Colorburst and Brushos- with a stencil.  The stenciled background was done on mixed media paper.  I love how this turned out.  I finally got the right mix of powder and water.
It was a perfect background for this awesome sentiment from the new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Inspirational Word Art 2 Stamp Set.  The bird silhouette from the His Wings Stamp Set was the perfect finishing touch for this card.  I added strips of paper for the banner portion of the Retrosketch, below, that I used.

Fusion- When I saw the inspiration photo, the chair backs immediately reminded me of stencils!  I loved the colors too!
Addicted to CAS= 'Watercolor'

CAS and Colored

Hi Everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I know it was World Card Making Day on Saturday, but my MOJO was still no where in sight, so I just colored some nbus Stamping Bella images, including this wonderful image of Edna.  I love Edna!

I was inspired by the colors at ColourQ this week~

The image is colored with Copics and the panel die cut out with a SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die.
Super CAS!!!
I am also linking up to Just Add Ink- "Just Add Wings",
And Casology- "Cute"
