Sweet Stamp Shop April release

(If you're looking for my Pinspired Challenges post, scroll down....Heck, scroll down anyway, then come back here....I'll wait....:))

Good morning!  I'm so very pleased to be guest designing for Sweet Stamp Shop again this month, and showcasing their new release for April!!  I got to work with the super fun drops background, and there is seriously SO much that you can do with this set.  My fellow designers really thought outside of the box with this one, so you'll definitely want to check out all of their amazing inspiration on the Sweet blog today, and then head over to purchase the fab new sets.  I honestly think each new release gets better and better!



So when I was creating with the drops background, I kept seeing "bubbles", and thought it would be super fun to make a bubbly beverage...maybe a congrats card with a champagne background? But, due to a happy accident in Silhouette Studio, I wound up with this super fun beer glass instead. ;)  I swirled a Butter Bar Hero Arts ink pad all over cream cardstock, and die cut the "keep calm" sentiment.  Then I stamped on the drops background with white pigment ink, and used a paint brush to swirl the white frothy head on top.  Totally fun, right? (or totally tacky depending on your point of view, but I'm sure you're an awesome person, so you're going with "totally fun")  I can't wait to show you more projects with this set, and my other Sweet Stamps, so come back on April 25th for my next guest design day.  There might even be a video for you, too! :)

  3. Jen, you are a rock star. Period. This card is amazing. And ironically, I made a card with this set making a champagne glass to toast my MIL's retirement next month! I swear I didn't even see this card until I put mine into the folder yesterday! Great minds. :)
