Welcome to the Neighborhood

Playing with my Love your Neighbor stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  We live in a new development so I love having Welcome cards made for when someone new moves in.  I colored the little house with copics and the paper was in my scrap bin!  Don't forget when you place a $75 order this month you get Scripty Thoughts free (pictured below).

So Prickly

Lol, I love this image sentiment from the new set Refresh My Soul from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps.  I colored with copics and the papers are from my scrap bin. I added some googlie eye for a touch of whimsy but not sure if I like them.    You know you know someone you could give this card to, lets face it we all get prickly now and again!  Don't forget if you spend $75 this month the free stamp set is Scripty Thought (pictured below).

Feeling so Loved!

Hello friends, I am playing with one of this month's new release sets at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Did you happen to see Sheri Gilson's wreath cards today?  She inspired me to get out my Itty Bitty Blossoms stamp set an play, I so struggle with the whole wreath making scene and hers are perfect.  I asked her if I could case one of her cards and I tried twice and well, the results were not great so I tried to keep it simple and it worked out ok.  I stamped and embossed each element, colored with copics and the paper is from Jen Hadfield, which is new to me, I found it at JoAnn Fabrics yesterday all there paper pads were 50% off.  The sentiment is from the set called Thoughtful Words also from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, I love this sentiment because on the inside you can add many things like "On your Anniversary", "On your Birthday", "And hope you Feel Better Soon".  Don't forget that our stamp of the month is Scripty Thoughts (shown below) free with $75 order.  Make sure you click on Sheri's name to see her beautiful cards.

Playing with the Love Your Neighbor stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this afternoon.  Was going for a simple card with no coloring.  Not sure what I think about it, it is different for me.  I also used Texture Tiles 1 on the tag.

2 for 1 Refresh My Soul

I have 2 cards for you today using a new release from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. For my first card I wanted to make a masculine Birthday card so I colored up this cactus with Copics and used Teeny Alpha and Chunky Alpha to make the words. I added a little heart to the cactus and the paper is from DCWV.  You could finish it off with several sentiments on the inside I am going to use it as a birthday card and the inside reads: "for someone your age" 😁

For my next card I colored up the same cactus, I used one of the sentiments from the set and made the "xoxo" with Teeny Alpha.  I colored with Copics and the paper is from Simple Stories.  Remember we have a free with $75 purchase and this month is is an awesome set called Scripty Thoughts pictured below.

Happy May everyone (can you believe it)!? It's new release time at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and all I can say is WOW! So many awesome sets this month!  I am playing with Refresh My Soul which is awesome for card making and Bible Journaling.  Cactus are near and dear my heart since I am in AZ.
I computer generated my sentiment and then stamped the cactus, colored with copics, added the little heart die cut and did some sewing and added to my card base. You can pre-order your stamps now so head on over to the store and get yours.

Rock Star

Oldie but goodie day at Catch The Bug.  What this means is we pick an older image from The Bug-A-Boo Stamps Store and play with it.  Why?  Well, maybe because some people have never seen it!  I am using Rock Star boy, I love this image, perfect for that younger boy in your life.  I colored with copics and the paper is from Echo Park. The inside says "Hope Your Birthday Rocks"
