Sweet 'n Sassy October 2015 Release

Hi Friends!

Woohoo!!  Today is release day at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and I have two cards to share with you from the new sets, Winter Blessings and Message of Hope.

Both cards were created from one main background panel and incorporate different sketch layouts from Splitcoaststampers- card #1 uses Sketch #SC508 and card #2 uses Sketch #SC515.

To create the background panel:

De-static a piece of watercolor paper with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the background stamp from Winter Blessings with Versamark™ ink and stamp onto the prepared watercolor paper, apply White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Spritz the embossed image with water and drop Brusho® Colour Crystals onto the wet areas, spritzing again and allowing the colors to spread (I used Turquoise and Purple).

Heat with the Heat Tool to dry and cut into the sizes needed for your panels.

To create the card #1:

It is a bit difficult to see the white embossed snowflakes on the bottom panel
(the rhinestones are in the centers of a few) 
Use a 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out the squares from the watercolored /embossed background panel and mount onto piece of purple cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of brushed silver cardstock, trim and mount onto another piece of purple cardstock.

Stamp the individual snowflakes from Winter Blessings with Versamark™ ink onto a prepared piece of white cardstock, apply white embossing powder, set the powder with the heat tool and stamp the sentiment from Winter Blessings with purple ink.

Trim the heat embossed snowflake panel and add to a piece of purple cardstock.

Dry emboss the remaining piece of white cardstock (from the trimmed panel in the step above) with a snowflake embossing folder, mount onto a piece of brushed silver cardstock and add the 5/8” silver satin ribbon to cover the seam.
Mount the entire background panel onto a piece of purple cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.

Add the layered snowflake focal image panel using dimensional foam and add Rhinestones to the snowflake centers to finish off the card.

To create card #2:

Ink the “Peace” Sentiment from Message of Hope with Versamark™ ink, stamp onto a piece of prepared Vellum, apply white embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Trim the embossed Winter Blessings Brusho® background panel to approx. 3 “x 3 ½” and add the embossed Vellum “Peace” sentiment  (wrapping the ends of the Vellum behind the panel to secure), mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of purple cardstock.

Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder, trim and mount onto a piece of purple cardstock, add the white crochet lace along with the 5/8” silver satin ribbon strip and triple satin ribbon bow.  Mount this panel onto the white card base using dimensional foam.

Add the focal image “Peace” panel with dimensional foam and adhere a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Two cards from one panel (plus a few strips leftover for my scraps) :-)
