And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Celebrating Milestones

Welcome back to Day #4 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April Release Features!  Today's features are very useful for making those celebration cards you need throughout the year...wedding, anniversaries, birthdays, just to mention a few!


  • Stamp set includes 10 sentiments & 10 numbers
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The first sentiment measures approximately 3" x 7/8"

  • Stamp set includes 6 sentiments

  • The first sentiment measures approximately 2 3/8" x 3/8"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp Set is priced at $15

Here is a sample using Anniversary Innies:



Creative Nugget:  The main panel was embossed with a CB folder and the sentiment stamped in the middle of the embossed frame with Rich Cocoa ink.  A Soft Sky frame was cut using a Classic Oval and an Opulent Oval Die by Spellbinders.  This panel was stitched to some Cosmo Cricket DP and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base.  Two hearts were cut from the same DP using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Heart Die Set.  Seam binding, paper flowers, and some pearls were added to embellish the quote.

And another one using Celebrating Milestones:


Creative Nugget:  All of the elements from the stamp set, Celebrating Milestones, were placed on one block and the sentiment was stamped on the Vintage Cream panel using Rich Cocoa ink.  The candles from Birthday Bash were rock 'n rolled in Soft Sky and Buckaroo Blue ink.  A clear jelly roll pen was used on the diagonal lines on the candles and on the flame, but the sparkle is difficult to see in the photo.  Scoring and piercing were added above and below the sentiment.  This panel was mounted to Cosmo Cricket DP.  Some seam binding dyed with ink to match the card and a button was attached.  Everything was mounted on a Vintage Cream card base.  Now that I'm looking at this card, I think I will go back and pop up one of the candles for dimension!

The anniversary card is gorgeous!! Love the color scheme and papers (so soft and elegant) and the sentiment is stunning in that frame. The little hearts are the perfect finishing touch. And that birthday card is perfect. Love the little added details that really make it pop.

The first card is so soft and pretty. The sentiment set inside the oval spellbinders die. The two hearts and the paper flowers and pearls really finish it off. The birthday card is a wonderful surprise for someone. The candles with the numbered milestone in the center is great. You are right, one or two candles popped up would be great. This could also be used as an anniversary card.

MariLynn said...

Your first card is so super elegant. Love the ribbons.
