Idon't know about you but sometimes I loose my mojo when I go to create a card and often turn to sketches for inspiration. My lovely teammate, Julee Tilman, creates the MOJOSKETCH and I thought that I would play along and share how I was inspired. This sketch was perfect to use up those paper scraps you have and to spotlight a sentiment like "Happy Mother's Day". If you would like to play along you can find her post HERE.

Hello friends, Stephanie
here with a card made with our new Stamp For A Cause set called Surrounded in Prayer
. This heartfelt stamp set was created in honor of our Creative Team member Jane Bosi and her recent battle with breast cancer for the purpose of raising funds for a cause that is dear to her heart. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Aspirus to raise funds for their Family House project which will support families while their loved ones undergo treatment. $10 from each stamp sold will be donated to the Aspirus Family House project. I colored my image with Copic Markers and the paper is from BoBunny. You still have a few days left to get the stamp of the month called Happy Day for FREE with a $75 order and as always, you will get free shipping with a $75 order.
I wanted something bright and cheerful. I started out with heat embossing the flower image with white embossing powder on water color card stock. Next, using Jane Davenport Mermaid water color brush, I loosely (and very messily) colored the flower in then spritzed it with water and let it dry overnight... you get such an organic and cool look this way... it's different every time as you can't really (easily) control the flow of the color... after the image dried, I fussy cut it...
The background was stamped with Texture Tiles 2 clear stamp set
... I just repeatedly stamped the image to cover the area... it is a very forgiving image so you don't have to be super careful with it...
I stamped the greeting on a die cut tag (retired SNSS die) and adhered the tag to the stem... then adhered a baker's twine bow to the tag. To further embellish my card, I added black Nuvo drops.
I hope I have inspired you to craft today!
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a blessed Easter celebration! HE LIVES!
Hello sweet friends! Cathy here with two cards to share using some of the stamp sets from the SNSS April Release. I was reminded of the Joseph's Coat Technique after watching a video on Jennifer McGuire's Blog and decided to try out some of her tips on my cards.

A rainbow blend of Oxide Inks were applied to a mixed media panel. The flowers from the Happy Day stamp set were clear embossed randomly over the panel. A Versafine Onyx Black stamp pad was swiped over the entire card. A paper towel was used to wipe off the black ink from the embossing and heat applied to bring back the shine on the embossing. The Surrounded in Prayer image was colored with Copic Markers and the extra flower and butterfly were watercolored using the same Oxide Ink colors. The background for this card was made exactly the same way except instead of applying black ink over the embossing, white ink was used. The sentiment from the Happy Day stamp set was black embossed on vellum and extra flowers added to finish the card. The stamp sets used for this card are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store. Happy Day is the Stamp of the Month and will automatically be added to your $75 order before tax and shipping. If you haven't had a chance to check out the April Release Blog Hop, there's still time to enter your comments to be eligible for the PRIZE. Just click on the link for more details!
I hope you will be inspired to give this fun technique a try!
