SSS - Finding multiple uses for one stamp

Are you ready for another Sweet Stamp Shop tutorial? I hope so! But today, might be more of a tip...

Thinking outside of the original stamp image!

There are some stamps that can be transformed into a number of different images
 besides the intended image! 

Want an example?  
Take a look at this bomb stamp from the Sweet Stamp Shop's Super Mom stamp set:

If you turn the bomb upside down and cut off the spark/line, you can turn it into a balloon!

Do you see another example on the card above?

From the Triangle Style stamp set, I turned the word 'WOW' into 'MOM' for the sentiment of this card!

Take a look around the Sweet Stamp Shop store and see if you see any other stamps that can be altered in a different image. We would love to hear what you come up with! Please leave a comment on this post with your amazing idea!

Also used in today's card:

It's Prickley Pear Monday!

Who is ready for another Prickley Pear Monday? With Halloween right around the corner, why not share a card using one of the newest Halloween stamps from Prickley Pear?

Today's card uses the Prickley Pear Daisy the Zombie stamp (FF0163) and Rags the Zombie stamp (AA0058):

SSS Tutorial - Creating your own overlay

Happy Monday Sweet friends! It's Jessi here from Kissin' Krafts. Today I am sharing with you, how to create your own overlay. I love the sunburst trend, but am limited with supplies to create it.

Sweet Stamp Shop's Dia De Los Muertos stamp set is used on this creation:

Using a long triangle die, I created the overlay by cutting out a number of 'rays'.

Time to add some color to the sunburst. I really wanted it to shout with colors. 
So starting with red, I also added a few oranges and yellows to create the ombre coloring.
 I blended the colors onto the paper using a piece of felt.

This was my first time to use an overlay. I think I am in love! Cannot wait to see what other designs I can come up with!

Sweet Stamp Shop stamp set used in today's card:

Are you looking forward to the Sweet Stamp Shop October Release? You don't have to wait long! Make sure to stop by tomorrow for the newest stamp sets!

Ombre Stamping with Sweet Stamp Shop

 Happy Tuesday, Sweet fans! Are you ready fro another Tutorial Tuesday? Today we are talking Ombre stamping. I am in love with the Ombre technique.

Today's card uses Sweet Stamp Shop's Chalkboard Sign stamp set:

The Ombre technique is very simple to complete. The best way to apply the different color inks to the stamp is to go from light to dark. The first color I applied to the stamp was the light blue. The light green-blue ink is added above the light blue. The dark green and darker blue are added towards the end.

I wanted the Chalkboard Sign stamp to be the focus of the card, so I kept the design simple and stamped the image twice. The banners are cut out and adhered with foam dots to add dimension to the card.

Alright, Sweet Stamp Shop friends! I need your help! What are the latest trends that you would like to see us explore in upcoming tutorials? I cannot wait to hear your ideas!
