I recently took a sheet of 8.5×11 cardstock and stamped all over it to create my own patterned paper. Then I thought it would be fun to see how many cards I could make using my new patterned paper. Here’s the paper I made.
To make my patterned paper, I used Distress Oxide inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber, and Gathered Twigs on a light butter yellow colored cardstock. I used the Delightful Daisies Stamp set from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.
I used the Everyday Greetings from Sweet N Sassy Stamps for the sentiments.
Here are the cards I made.
To make the cards I cut the sheet of patterned paper up. I will show you what cuts I made below. I die cut 8 ovals for sentiments and I heat embossed the sentiments in white. I also cut 8 card panels out of kraft paper measuring 4×5.25 inches. I embossed all the kraft card panels with an embossing folder of large dots. I sponged a little white pigment ink on top of the embossed panels to bring out the definition. Once I cut up the patterned paper I cut a border panel for each piece of white cardstock. Each piece was a quarter of an inch bigger than the patterned piece. To help embellish the cards I heat embossed in white 8 of the daisies with the stem out of orange cardstock and fussy cut them out. Lastly I added ribbon and sequins.
Here is how I cut my patterned paper.
These cards were lots of fun to make! And now I have a set of 8 cards to give as a gift to someone!

I’m so excited, I am a guest designer for Sweet n Sassy Stamps for April 2020! I had the chance to play with 2 brand new stamp sets before their launch. So today I will show you one of the cards I made.
I think it came out so cute! I used the new Country Garden Stamp set, the existing Fur-ever Friends stamp set and the Tea for Two set, both illustrated by Jennifer Nilsson. Here are the sets.
To make the card I used water color paper and did a quick background using my Jane Davenport water color paints. I colored the all the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and popped them up on foam squares. I did fussy cut the cute bunny to layer behind the wheel barrow. I used printed paper from my stash and a scallop rectangle die from my stash. I added blue and pink sequins to finish.

HI Crafty Friends! I made 2 cards with a couple of what I call people builder stamp sets from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I will show you the guy card 1st since I think making cards for guys is the hardest!
For this card I used some red paper from my stash then layered a piece of kraft cardstock that I had stamped sentiments from the Love Wordfetti Stamp Set. Instead of using each sentiment on its own, I leave them all together and stamp them all at once. I can then use it as a background like I did here or cut them into sentiment strips to use on lots of cards. The “guy” is from the Brotherly Love Stamp Set. It has lots of choices to you can “build your person”. I choose the glasses and longer goatee so it would resemble my husband. I added in the main sentiment and hearts from the Forever and Always Stamp Set. I used a few different reds and a deep brown inks to stamp the hearts in. I also inked the edges of all the kraft cardstock. I think it’s so fun that you can combine lot of different features to make your person!
Now for the girl card. Have you ever heard of “Galentine’s”? I hadn’t till last year. But I think it’s a great idea to make cards for all the great girl friends in your life. So here is my Galentine’s Day card.
I used the Girl Power Stamp Set to build my girl. She actually kinda looks like me instead of one of my friends. There is also a Girl Power 2 Stamp Set, so there are tons of options for hair, accessories and clothes! This card has lots of pink and is soft and feminine. I love it! I used the flowers from the Happy Day Stamp set and stamped them in a soft pink and sage green inks from my stash. I also splattered some pinks and black inks in the background. The Happy and Day sentiment words are from the Happy Day Stamp Set also. To make the Galentines, I used the Mini Grunge Type Alpha, so I could spell out Galentine’s. The heart is from the Forever and Always Stamp Set. The ribbon and sequins are from my stash. Below are the stamp images.
