Sweet 'n Sassy Friday Feature - Birthday Word Art

Hi folks! Each week in May Sweet 'n Sassy is featuring a stamp set and this week we're highlighting the Birthday Word Art stamp set, which features 13 birthday themed sentiments (including that cute number stamp you see on my card!). And rumor has it that the featured sets may just be on sale...be sure to hit the SNSS blog for all of the details.

To create today's card I used the Leafy Flourish background stamp and three coordinating Distress Inks to stamp the image onto my card base, creating an ombre effect. I then got busy die cutting...(you can find all product links below) my frame, circle, kite, and cloud. Since SNSS sells stamps that coordinate with their dies (or the other way around!), I was able to stamp the edge designs on to the frame and kite. (There's also an outline stamp for the cloud!) Then I colored my kite and assembled my card! (I also stamped the numbers on to a piece of plain cardstock to act as a band on my card base.)

Enjoy!

Life Book Lesson #13

A short and sweet post today...sharing the next Life Book lesson.  Last week's lesson was on creating a field journal, or creating a project based on something found in nature.  Since it's still freezing here in New England (will it ever get warm?), I decided to grab some shells that I had on a shelf at home and draw them, while dreaming of warmer days.  I kept this entire project pretty simple as I really liked the final look of the watercolors (oh, how I love working with watercolors!), and opted to just added a quote (from Ali Edwards).  This project did make me want to create an entire journal dedicated to watercoloring...maybe something to start this summer...
