Faith. Hope. Love.

Good morning!

My card today uses several Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps together to make a 'shabby chic'  love themed card.  I love the sunflowers from the Prim Blessings stamp set and paired them with the Delightfully Delicate Background as well some dots from the Lots of Spots stamp set.

First, I stamped the sunflower images in Versamark ink and white embossed them.  Then, using Distress Markers, I watercolored them in and let it dry.  Then, using some light inks, I stamped the backgrounds , not worrying if they got on the sunflowers since I used such light inks.

Such a fun card - but one that I had a hard time getting the correct colors to show through on the camera for you... sorry about that!

Have an enjoyable day filled with faith, hope and love!

Let us Adore Him.

Good morning!

Sweet'n Sassy Stamps recently celebrated Christmas in July with releasing several new stamp sets. There is a challenge currently going on for one more day in honor of the new release - check it out here!

My card today uses the new Jesus is Born for the sentiment and the adorable sheep from Prim Blessings.  The background is the Music Background

Although the thought of Christmas gives me the willies, it's great to start adding cards to my Christmas card stash! lol!  I adore summer and don't even want to think about the cold winter season yet... so part of me apologizes for the Christmas card here in the middle of July! lol!

Have a great day!

Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge

Good morning!

It's time for the new Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge!  

Just check out these fabulous colors Jen put together for us:


I pulled out patterned papers in the challenge color and layered them together, added a bit of stitching and a doily for the card base.  The coral colors were a perfect fit for the new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set and coordinating dies.

I used coordinating aqua and lime markers to ink up my favorite sentiment from the set and stamped it in such a way that the flamingos could face each other - like one friend talking to another, reassuring each other of their love.

I decided not to add any other embellishments because I wanted the lovely Reverse Confetti stamps and dies to speak for themselves!  This is my favorite way to stamp - lots of patterned papers and adorable stamps, with a doily and some stitching thrown in!  Ha!

To see the other designers' projects with today's Color Challenge, please hop over to the Reverse Confetti Company blog for all the photos, links, and details!

Have a great day!
