Sweet Sentiment - May Release is Here!!

Howdy and Happy Saturday!  Today is Sweet Sentiment's May release and it's jam packed full of stamp and stencil fun!

The first stamp set I have used today is called "Gone Fishin'" and it's got all the fun fishin' images a girl (or guy) could ever want!  This stamp set features the company owners, Sandy and Jammie, out in the wildness in all kind of fish related fun!

I began this card using the amazing Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper, the brand new "Helm Mandala Stencil" and Copic Airbrush system.

I created this fun blue stencilled background and then popped on my little fisher-gal with some fun foam tape!  I used Copic Markers to color her in and some Polychromos Pencils to add in some of the finer details again.  I used Memento "Desert Sand" ink to stamp her for a no-line effect.  The frame is from Catherine Pooler Designs.

Next comes the stunning new blooms stamp set called "Sweet Sincerity".

This magnificent stamp set features some beautiful trio-petaled flowers and accompanying leaves and buds and a glorious large scale sentiment.

To start, I first masked off my cardstock panel of Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper, then I airbrushed on some yellow Copic and then a splattering of dark fuchsia Copic ink.

I stamped all the floral and greenery images in Moment "Desert Sand" ink for a no-line look as well!  I colored them all in using bright pink Copic Markers and popped them up using foam and glue dots.

I inked up part of the sentiment with Versamark ink and then embossed it with Copper embossing powders.  And voila... a card was born!

Don't forget to check out this nifty gadget...

This is the Sweet Sentiments Exclusive Color Blend Stand.   It holds up to 5 Copic Sketch markers for ease of coloring!  It comes in a variety of fun colors for you to choose from!

I hope you have a great rest of your weekend and I hope you're able to get crafty!

Be the Light in the Darkness

The Summer Nights collection over at Catherine Pooler is a collection your gunna love!  There's a little something in if for everyone!

Today I'm working some of the fun products from the Night in Flight Bundle and the Under the Stars Bundle. All of these products are also found a la carte in the CP Shop so you can pick and choose.

I choose to grab one of the cute bugs from the "Night in Flight" stamp set first.  I stamped it out in Dress Blues ink and then colored it up using my Copic Markers.

Then I grabbed the smallest circle die from the new "Round About Dies" and cut a hole in the cute polka dot paper from the "Under the Stars" patterned paper pack.  This round hole size is perfect for the fabulous "Halo Lights" from Pear Blossom Press (also sold in the CP Shop!).

I created a Dress Blues inked edge for my polka dot paper and I used Orange Twist ink to stamp my greeting inside the circle from the "Night in Flight" stamp set.

I mounted the Halo Light under the circle on my card base and used foam tape to attach the front panel of my card.

And voila... a light up card for someone special...

Don't forget... if you're a StampNation member, if you shop anytime during the month of May you can get a FREE 3x4 stamp set...

Have a great Tuesday!
