You are AMAZING!

Hello, here with a card using one of the new release sets All About You and an older set called Floral Greetings.  I love both of these sets, All About you has lots of awesome sentiments and I love the flowers and sentiments in Floral Greetings.  This card came together quickly since there was no coloring involved, I stamped and embossed.   Please keep Korin and her family in your thoughts and prayers as they move to their new home this weekend.

YOU make me smile!

A quickie for you this morning using one of the newest stamp sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, it's call All About You and I just love this set!  Yes, it's all sentiments but you can do SO much with it!  I used Grunge Elements 2 to make the Bubbles in the background and then stamped and embossed the sentiment.  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will be closed from July 15th until August 4th as Korin and her family move and get settled into their new home, you can still visit the store to place your order!

Friendship

A little de-stressing today in the crafty room.   In the middle of some work being done in the house and I have had no doors on my kitchen cabinets for going on 3 weeks now as they are being re-done and all my drawers are empty.  I am not one for the open shelf look that is for sure!  Every time I need a utensil I have to go into the spare bedroom to get it- what a pain!    I snuck into my craft room and made a card to day those doors and drawers are next!  I love this sentiment and flower stamp  both from Penny Black.

Sweet As Honey!

Amen to that verse!  I am in love with this new set called Sweet As Honey now available in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store!  I stamped the honeycomb using distress inks and then sponged with more distress ink and then used a heart shaped die cut to cut it out.  I colored the bee with Copics and added some stickles to the wings for a little sparkle.  This set comes with 3 great scripture verses and a bunch of other sentiments, which makes it great for card making and even bible journaling!  Make sure you check out the other New Release HERE, some great new sets this month!

He Will

Decided to get the watercolors out today!  I just find water coloring so relaxing!  Today I am using Fantastic Flowers  from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, which is a new release and I have paired it with an older set, Be Encouraged.  this is one of my favorite quotes and sometimes it is a hard on to grasp.  We know he can but sometimes we wonder if he will, but...HE ALWAYS DOES!  I stamped onto watercolor paper and used watercolor markers and a paintbrush, distressed the edges and added some pearls!

Snail Mail

Hello friends, I have a new stamp to show you today from Unity Stamp Co.  Love this stamp set!  I made this card using paper from The Paper Studio and my stash.  The sketch is from Mojo Monday which is the last Mojo Monday! I have not done the Mojo Monday sketch in a long time due to time restraints but used to always go to it for inspiration when I first started stamping.  Julee, your sketches will be missed by so many but I am glad you will still be around at Verve which I also love.
