Tone on Tone Stamping & Coloring - Stunning Mason Jar Bouquet Stamps

Today I'm sharing my first card using one of Sweet 'n Sassy's new stamp set Mason Jar Bouquet! This set is so pretty, so versatile and is perfect for coloring.




I stamped the flowers in hot pink dye ink and colored them in the same color, to create a tone on tone effect. I have been using watercolor markers to color a lot lately and I've also been drawn to bright, summer colors. I watercolored this flowers in hot pink using very little water and added a fresh green on the leaves. I decided they would look great with a few green leaf die cuts. I used foam squares to give them dimension.

The sentiments in this set are so beautiful, a very nice font and size. I was able to stamp this Mother's Day greeting  in black, on one side of the die cut panel matching the rest of the card design.


The images are so striking and pretty I really didn't need to do much for my card base. I just die cut a large intricate panel, cut it in half and layered the pieces creating a lace border like design. Details such as the black and silver Reversible Satin Ribbon and pearls tie the card together.

I hope you enjoyed today's post! Make sure to stop by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps today to check out this and other new clear stamp sets available now. Until next time.

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
