January Blog Hop Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Welcome to the Sweet n' Sassy Stamps January Release Hop! There's another fabulous release in the SNSS shop that we've been stamping with and we're so excited to share our projects with you!

Both my cards today feature the adorable new Lots of Love and awesome Texture Tiles 5  sets. You will love the sweet images and fun fonts in Lots of Love! It is great for making a variety of cards. You will love the many uses for the Texture Tiles 5 set! It is great for cards, mixed media and Bible journaling.

I created the circle of hearts in the center of each card by using a die to cut a circle out of a scrap piece of cardstock. I centered the circle template over my white and pink pieces of cardstock and stamped the hearts in red until it was filled. Both cat images were colored with Polychromos colored pencils using Gamsol and a stump to smooth them out.

For my first card, I die cut out my center piece then I masked off the edges and sponged with red. I stamped the words in VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. I used some washi tape from my stash to ground my image and adhered the cute cat with pop dots.


For my second card, I die cut along each side of my pink cardstock. I found some pattern paper in my stash to coordinate with my theme and attached to my base along with my center panel. I couldn't find any washi tape in my stash to match with my pattern paper so I settled on a gray strip of cardstock. I stamped the words with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and attached the cat with pop dots.





Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is the amazing Lee Ann Barrett!
