Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps + My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome!

Today Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps is joining forces with My Sweet Petunia for an awesome blog hop and giveaway!  There's a chance to win a $50 gift code to each shop, so we hope you'll join the fun and hop along with us! To be eligible for the drawing, leave a little shout out in the comments at each stop along the hop.


For my project today I'm using the Mini Misti along with the NEW Back to School and School Days Alpha stamp sets.


First thing I like to do is load up my Mini Misti with the stamps I plan to use.  If you've never used one...this is a MUST HAVE tool and I will show you why.


I don't know about you but I was wasting a lot of paper when stamping with blocks and not getting a perfect inking.  I love having the ability to re-stamp an image.  I actually stamped the second one a total of three times as I wanted a crisp dark black image to color. You can also color your images and put it back in your Misti for a final stamp if you don't move any of the stamps on the door and line it back up.  I find this helpful when using color pencils as sometimes it will dull the inking.

 Next I colored the images with copic markers and decided to create some fun Lunch Box Notes that you can tuck into your kids lunch boxes & backpacks to let them know that you are thinking of them.  They measure 3.75 Square.

To create the chalkboard background I stamped the "Aa" with embossing/watermark ink and heat embossed with detail white embossing powder.  I then took a white pigment ink pad and a swiffer cloth and applied the ink to the black card stock until I got the desired look.  I then took the images I colored and fussy cut them out.  I created the three cards below. These could also be made into a card set for a teacher gift.

Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps | August 2019 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Welcome to the Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps August 2019 Release Blog Hop!  If you haven't shopped or seen the release yet you can find it in the shop HERE.

We are so excited about the NEW stamps available in the shop this month and can't wait to share the projects we've been working on with you!


With the school year right around the corner I thought that it would be fun to create something other than a card.  I love creating altered treat holders that I can full with yummy treats or a gift card to the local coffee shop or sandwich shop.  Teachers deserve a little spoiling and know how much we appreciate them!

Both of my projects feature the NEW Back to School stamp set.  I found these fun sacks that are perfect to dress up.  The first one I created for the bus driver and used the new School Days Alpha to personalize it by adding their name. 


The second one I was thinking would be perfect for showing appreciation any time during the year for a teacher.  For this one I added a tag to personalize it and tied it on with twine.
