Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps | Noel

 Hello Sweet Friends!

Today's card features Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps NEW Christmas Text Background stamp from the September 2020 Release.

I created a quick and easy background by embossing the stamp with white embossing powder on a piece of powder blue card stock. Then I took three shades of blue ink (Powder Blue, Blue Denim & In the Navy) and ink blended around the edges of the panel. I then added a couple punched snowflakes by Marvy that I've had for years (before dies...did I just give a clue that I've been stamping/cardmaking for over 20+ years...lol)

Card Measurements:
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
White Mat: 3 15/16" x 3 15/16"
Blue Panel: 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"

Now onto today's inspiration! We are featuring TWO brand new sets!

 The first set is called Timeless Poppies and is illustrated by Arjita Singh.

For my card I stamped and embossed the poppy in black on a piece of Red Hot card stock. I then took a combination of Red Velvet and Charcoal Brown and ink blended around the card panel. Make sure to not go to far in to leave the middle to glow. I then added a piece of ribbon and the sentiment on a tag shape for a final touch.

The second set is called Bloomin' Wild and is illustrated by Lisa Hetrick. This set also has a coordinating die set available.


For my card I created a CAS (clean and simple) layout. First I picked a few of the floral images from the set and embossed them in white and then added color by ink blending Sweet Corn and Jelly Bean Green. The sentiment is from the Zeenflowers stamp set from the NEW Festive Fall Card Kit. For a final touch I added a few Angel Aura Rhinestones.

Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")

Now onto today's inspiration! We are featuring TWO brand new sets!

The first set is called Innocent Orchid and is illustrated by Hannah Drapinski.
 

I created a CAS (clean and simple) card. I stamped the orchid using GKD Amalgam Obsidian ink and used copic markers to color it. I then added a sentiment from the set. For embellishment I added clear Wink of Stella and a few of the beautiful Angel Aurora Rhinestones.

Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
Black Onyx Mat: 4" x 5 1/4"
Layering White Panel: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

The second set is called Beautiful Bees and is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. This set also has a coordinating die set available. 


For my card I stamped one of the flowers and two of the smallest bees in the set with Amalgam Obsidian ink and then colored them with copic markers. For the card base I kept it simple with a few white panels and a strip of strip pattern paper from my scrap bin. The sentiment is embossed in white. All the images were cut out with the coordinating dies. This card has tons of dimension as all the panels along with the images are popped up with foam squares. For a final touch I added a little Wink of Stella and a few black pearls.
 
Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
White Panel: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
White Panel: 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
Striped Pattern Paper Strip: 1 3/4" x 4 7/8"
Sentiment Strip: 2 1/2" x 1"
