sweet 'n sassy card sample

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

This is an exciting day for me because it's my first blog post as a design team member for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

The team has been showing cards all week made with the new sets that Korin will be releasing on May 1.

Make sure you visit the Sweet 'n Sassy blog to see all the beautiful creations. There will be peeks every day through Saturday.

With that being said, I am giving you a "sweet peek" of the "Let Go, Let God set to be released from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on May 1.

This set has 5 diffferent sentiments in it. They are all so perfect for a card of encouragement. All you need to do is add is your layout. And, with so many sketch  & color challenges out there in blogland that shoulnd't be a problem.

In fact my layout today is from the Mojomonday #188 challenge. I decided to go with a round card and I used the spellbinders lacy circles to cut the base. 

The designer paper is from the new Stampin-Up collection "paisley petals". My ribbon treatment is baja breeze seam binding with a button center.  I wet  the seam binding and wrinkled it for a more shabby chic look.

My sentiment from this set fit perfectly in a round spellbinders die or a 1 3/8" circle punch will work as well.  I also punched little flowers to line the circle sentiment and added pearl centers. The faux brads are the centers from the card base with pearl centers.

Some other challenges I am entering:
1.  The stampin' sisters in Christ blog has a round card challenge.
2.  The stampavie and more blog wants us to use pearls.
3.  The craft your passion blog wants us to show layers.

Well, that's it for this post so until next time................
