Bloggers Challenge 59 the same but different...

This entry offers you several sneak peaks into some new Sweet 'n Sassy stamps that will be revealed on September 1.

This weeks Bloggers Challenge is to make cards that are the SAME but DIFFERENT. Different colors and different stamps. I enjoyed this challenge, so I made three cards!

This first card I used 2 new stamps! One was the Shady Daisy background - that I LOVE, my hubby said he thought it was a XEROX. LOL It also showcases the NEW Thanksgiving Scripture set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Cardstock and Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White, Brushed Silver
Accessories: Dew Drops, Dimensionals, Mini GLue Dots, Black grosgrain, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack

Ohhh, this card I made for a contest several weeks ago, but never finished it and it was due July 1, and here is sits on my desk, so you can see it never made it for submission either. LOL

I used Whipper Snapper Designs Swing Monkey stamp set. I cut out the branch of the tree with a craft knife and popped it up. I colored the image with Copics.... The tree and the monkey are seperate stamps, along with the ice cream cone, so I paper pieced everything together. popped the branch up with a dimensional and the ice cream cone too. You can see the other angle below...

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Whipper Snapper Designs - Swing Monkey, ICe cream cone and words.
Cardstock & Ink: Copics, Brilliance Black, So saffron, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pewter hodgepodge, Chocolate 5/8 grosgrain, Paper piercing tool, Dew Drops Cowboy, Mini glue dots, Craft Knife, Paper Snips

This card features a NEW stamp set that will be released September 1 from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Turkey Day. I love this little turkey!!!! He is soo cute.

I stamped the turkey on Whisper White and used SU Markers to color him. Ruby Red, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Going Gray, Basic Black, White Gel Pen, Gold Zig Painty, Basic Black

I colored the ribbon with a Copic marker and attached it using a Black hardware piece. There is a fabulous frame that comes in the set to frame your words and I used that around the Happy Thanksgiving text.

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other Bloggers Challenge cards! Have a great night!!!
