Sweet n' Sassy's "Christmas Joy"

Day 2 of my daily post with Christmas card inspiration using some of my favorite stamp images. This one is designed using "Christmas Joy" by Sweet n' Sassy.  This one would be pretty quick and easy to put together.  I cut the doily from tissue paper using "Nautical Wheeler Doily" by Cheery Lynn Designs.  This may become one of my all- time most used dies.  LOVE doily's.  I colored the the bird using R29, R46, and R89.  I used E23, E25, and E19 for the branch / pine cone.  I added a little Stickles to the branch and pine cone to create a little snow.

I love sending cards.  I can't make any promised because I'm not sure how many cards I will get done on my trip ... but if I don't already have your address and you would like to receive a Christmas card from me :
Email me your address and birthday to

I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas card.
Thanks for stopping by!
hugs, Melisa

Sweet n' Sassy "Bookmarks and Bits"

Guess what ???  My daughter is coming to visit!!!   I'm so excited.  She and her boyfriend, David are flying in from Colorado and visiting for a week.  So today I'm sharing the bookmarks I made for her 5th grade class.  As soon as I seen Sweet n' Sassy's "Bookmarks and Bits" I had to have it.  Aren't these images so cute!!

I do need to give some credit though.  I only designed 3 of them.  The cute one with the paper air planes was designed by Bridget @ "Bridget's Paper Blessings" HERE.

Have a great day!
hugs, Melisa

Sweet 'n Sassy "Flowers in Bloom"

Hello stampers.  Today I'm sharing a card created using Sweet 'n Sassy "Flowers in Bloom".  Love those flowers!  And I love that sentiment.  I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.

I'm excited because tomorrow is the day I meet with my painting group.  I'm working on an oil painting.  Still haven't actually done a canvas yet.  I just feel like I want to get better at it before I actually do a canvas.  So I'm still practicing.  I have to say learning to oil    paint is one of the hardest crafty activities I've ever tried.  I haven't really worked on it the last year like I had intended when I started this journey.  But last month I started going back to my wednesday group and that's keeping me on track with at least working on something once a week.  Maybe I will have the courage to share with you some day.

I have been working on some Faith art this week which was inspired by taking Stephanie Ackerman's Class.          We are supposed to create 1 a week.  I will share mine 4 at a time, once monthly.  2 down, 2 to go!  I also have a card set to share that shows creative ways to use paint on your cards.  So be looking for that one as well.

Have a blessed day!!
hugs, Melisa

Sweet 'n Sassy Cards

Yellow has never been one of my favorite colors, but as soon as I seen this paper pad at Hobby Lobby last week I had to have it.  It's by Authentique.   "Everyday Miracles" is a wonderful encouragment stamp set.  And you know I love those butterflies!

This card was featured as a top 3 at Sentimental Sundays!!

Have you seen the August new releases over at Sweet n' Sassy??  I'm in LOVE with the Autumn Collage!!

So I grabbed a couple of my Sweet n' Sassy stamp sets and these are the results!  These are pretty clean and simple.  The coloring took the most time.

I love the "Praising the Lord" set because of the wonderful sentiments in it.  This week I am praising the Lord for a new job opportunity and for my sweet husband who I love so much!  How is God blessing you in your life??

Sweet 'n Sassy "Owl Be There"

Hello Paper Crafters!  I'm back today with another card created using "Owl Be There" by Sweet N Sassy.   Lots of paper piecing on this one, but it really doesn't take long.  I bought some PanPastels a while back and  wanted to try them so I used them to create the sky.  Basically you use a spongy pad, kinda like a make-up pad and rub them on.  They are ok, but not sure I would buy more.   I could brush blue water color paint on for a lot cheaper.  The rest was paper pieced.  I used my brown NeoColor II watercolor crayon around edges, on tree, and around all other pieces. 

thanks for stopping by!
Owl be back next tuesday with my next Sweet n Sassy project!

Sweet 'n Sassy's "Owl Be There"

Good Morning Paper Crafters. Today I'm sharing the other 2 cards I created using "Owl Be There" by Sweet 'n Sassy.   Such a cute little friendship set.  I was inspired to create these when I saw a Color Throwdown challenge posted last week, to use the colors from the Mabel paper pad by My Mind's Eye.  If you are like me you have a pile of those little 6 x 6 paper pads laying around. The small paper pads are perfect for paper piecing stamped images because the patterns are so small. So think of all the options for creating your own little set of cards using this set and your paper pads.  

Soooooo many possibilites with this image!  Wouldn't the image be cute with a little bow on the head for a girl, oh and what about a party hat??? That would make a great birthday card! You could have him sitting on top of a birthday gift. I'm trying to think of other things we could tuck under his wing .... what about a book and a graduates hat on his head .... or a balloon.

Another great idea would be to put two of them standing side by side with their wings touching so they look like they are holding hands. There just may be enough room between the wings to have him holding a banner. We can have a lot of fun with this little guy!

I'd love to know what idea's you have. If you would like to share an idea or a card you created using this little guy just leave me a comment with a link to your card.

Hope you're day is a hoot!
hugs, Melisa

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April New Release Celebration!  I"m so excited to be the guest designer this month for Sweet N Sassy and I had so much fun playing with 2 of the new release sets!!  Today I"m sharing an altered acrylic frame using "Bee Happy Rhubarb".  The images from the set that I used are Rhubarb, the sentiment and the little bee's.  The flowers, sun and border were hand drawn.  And the little cutie in the photo is my son 22 years ago.  Boy how time flies.  If I could just kiss those little chubby cheeks one more time ....  I know there will many more inspirational projects during the hop, so take a minute to hop around and then join in the party over at SCS.

Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday card

Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing one of Sweet 'n Sassy's digital images Chocoholic.   I needed another birthday card, so I had to create my own sentiment in a word document.  Looking at this makes me hungry, teehee.  It's been soooo long since I've had chocolate, but I've lost 20lbs!!  So it has been worth the to resist.

Thanks for stopping by!
