Sweet n Sassy Stamps Turns 13 and November Blog Hop!

 Hello Everyone!  

A huuuuge CONGRATULATIONS to Korin and Sweet n Sassy Stamps as the company turns 13 this year!  We have been celebrating all month long.  How fitting is it that the November release have lots of fabulous birthday stamp sets!  Hop along with us for lots of inspiration and leave comments along the way for your chance to win a $25 gift voucher to the Sweet n Sassy Stamps Store.  Winner will be announced November 25th on the snss blog.  

I started out with the fabulous Make a Wish Stamp Set

I love the timeless birthday images in the set and they are perfect for both women and men.  Makes those difficult to make masculine cards a little bit easier.  Here I stamped the icing in Inkon3 Fade Out No Line Coloring Ink, masked it off and then stamped the cupcake/wrapper in Fade Out Ink. The cupcake was then colored with Copics.  the cherry from the Summer Fruits Stamp Set was also stamped in Fade Out Ink and colored with Copics.  Everything was fussy cut out.  I trimmed the bottom of the cherry off and glued it to the top of the cupcake, giving it the appearance if being set into the icing.  I made it nice and shiny with Glossy Accents.  

The Happy BDay sentiment from the Make a Wish Stamp Set was stamped in Versamark ink on kraft cs;  I die cut a tag from the cs with the IO Stitched Tag Die.  

I created a mixed media background using red watercolors, a stencil and clear embossing paste.  I die cut a large circle out of this and used it for a background and to ground my tag.  Lastly, I added a 'tag' to my 'tag', lol.  I used the Celebrate sentiment from the Lots of Love Stamp Set, stamped it in black and cut out a rectangle.  I gave my 'tag' a finished edge by using a Border Stitching Die.  

Next up, I made a card that works  nicely for men!  

I stamped the slice of cake in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copics.  Next, I stamped the small candle, masked it off and stamped it again, repeating this until I had a cluster of candles.  I fussy cut the candles out, trimmed the bottom off and adhered them to the slice of cake, giving the appearance of them being stuck in the cake.  I have had this background in my stash for ages- the numbers and colors were absolutely perfect for the image.  I grounded the slice of cake with a black circle, then stamped the sentiment, which is from the fabulous Humorous Birthday Innies Stamp Set.  A few black and white sequins finish off the card.  

My last card uses the oh so fun A Little Snarky Stamp Set.  

Again, I pulled a stenciled background that I have had in my stash to make this card.  She was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I popped her up on dimensional tape and added a snarky sentiment.  3 sequins add a bit of shine.  
That's it for me!  Check out all of the other inspiration from the rest of the team.  Enjoy!

  4. Love the way you colored the images for your cards! Awesome creations! Pretty backgrounds too!

  5. Love your cards. I like making cards ahead of time (like months and months) and enjoy having non -gendered cards as go-to's in my box. The cupcake is perfect for that.

  6. So beautiful & fun! Love the whimsical feel :)

  7. Lee Ann, I don't know how you did it, but you made that cupcake look 3D & so real. I really like the Kraft tag with the tone on tone Happy Birthday stamped on it. Your colour choice for backgrounds in your other two cards is so pretty & I like the stencilled design in the one as well. Your colouring & shading is top notch.

  8. I love your stenciled backgrounds! Gorgeous!

  9. These are great cards. The first one especially.

  10. LOVE your cards, LeAnne. Great coloring using depth and detail. I'm impressed (cuz I stink at it, quite frankly). Thanks for the wonderful inspiration using this awesome new release from Sweet 'n Sassy. I'm inspired!

  11. The heart-shaped Cherry. Love love love these cards. Your coloring and shading are fantastic. <3
