Mixed Media Card with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

If you follow me on social media you know that lately I have been playing with some mixed media and making fun backgrounds. Today I am sharing card for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps using one of those backgrounds I came up with.


This fun and colorful background started out as a way to try out some Mixed Media Sheets and I instantly became addicted to the sheets and got all my mixed media supplies out. I really wanted to use this background for a card so I decided to stamp and color these flowers from my stamp set for SNSS Floral Greetings. I watercolored them with Zig markers and wasn't careful about it because I wanted the coloring to match the playful background.

I decided to add stamped words here and there to the background using new stamps from the set Words of Life: Actions using Mix'd Media Inx. A torned piece of fuscia cardstock brings together all the elements just as a piece of ribbon would. To finish the card I stamped and heat embossed in clear a sentiment from Floral Greetings on vellum.


This card has inks, ink sprays, acrylic and tempera paints, watercolor markers and even a touch of foil. There is really a bit of everything on it and I love how it turned out. It was lots of fun to make and I know I will be trying it out again!

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…
