SNSS April Release Mini Blog Hop Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April Release Mini Blog
Hops - today we're showcasing several sets, the first one is
His Child!

I loved making cards with this set, in fact I ended up making
about five the first time I used it - I'll share a couple of those with you today! 
For this one I masked and sponged a strip with post-it-notes
before spritzing with distress stains. 
I used the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
fence die from the Fence and Grass Die set to add a
little picket fence.  This wonderful sentiment
is accented with stamps from SNSS's Decorative Frame Toppers.
Supplies include:
 Ranger Distress Scattered Straw
Stampin Up Pool Party, Cool Caribbean
Ranger Broken China Distress Stain
MFT Color Box Licorice Black ink
Here's my second card:
For my second card I also masked and sponged a strip using post-it-notes,
before spritzing with water.  I find dabbing up the excess water
with a dry cloth helps "lift" the ink.
I used a post-it-note and a small circle cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities
Circles Small to mask a sun. 
The wild meadow grass is stamped using
to accent the wonderful sentiment.
Supplies include:
Stampin Up Lucky Limeade, Yoyo Yellow ink
MFT Color Box Licorice Black ink
Ranger Mini Mister

    Stamp set includes 3 images & 5 sentiments
    Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
    The first sentiment measures approximately 1 3/8" x 3"
    Designed by Dina Kowal
    Stamp set is priced at $15

    Mini Tags and Sentiments and Mini Tags Die Set

I can't tell you how useful these stamps and dies are going to
be - look at all those tags and sentiments!
I decided to string some of the small tags along for a "rainbow" effect and
then designed a matching sentiment to say exactly what I wanted to say. 
I popped up the word "blessed" using red ink for emphasis.
Check out all the details below and just imagine what YOU could do with it!

Stampin Up Yoyo Yellow, Lucky Limeade, Ballet Blue, Orchid Opulence, Real Red ink

Stunning! Your cards are stunning!!! Love the partial fence and the fabulous colors on the first one!!! Beautiful design on the 2nd. Fabulous sentiments!! Super cute mini tag card!!!!

Heather said...

These cards are all fabulous! Love the masking, inking and spritzing techniques you used on the first two. It creates a really fun look. And I really like the flourishes you added to the sentiments. I will have to keep that in mind, it really dresses the sentiment up. AND that tag card is genius!! Love the rainbow effect.

Both these cards are really beautiful. I must have the Fence and Grass die set. She looks like she is having a great time jumping without a care in the world. The 2nd card is just as outstanding. She looks like she is praising he Lord for such a great day. Wow, gets to my heart.
