It's Amy T here with a tall skinny card:

I'm a big fan of color and texture.  How could I not team up the wooden tag and the woodgrain cloud with some fabulous Fresh Squeezed Stamps images?

I super LOVE the new Words to Live By about you?

City Love

**For your chance to win a FREE stamp set - play along with Squeeze-A-Palooza!  Details can be found HERE**

Hi!  This is Jingle here with you today.  I cannot tell you how IN LOVE with the On Trend 2013 stamp set I am!  I have seriously inked that sucker up more times than I can count already and it's brand new!  I used a fun Kaleidacolor ink pad from Tsukineko along with some gold leaf to warm up the cityscape a bit in today's card.


On Trend 2013

I used a glue pen to add just a bit of gold leafing to the windows. I like how it gives it a little something extra! Totally fun! Have a Happy!

Hi, It's Maureen here with some Fresh Squeezed inspiration.  Today's project combines two new sets from the April release, Words to Live By and On Trend 2013.

This sentiment is so true, wouldn't you agree?  I find that if I continually make cards, the ideas come quickly, but if I stop for a few days or a week, I have a hard time finding my mojo. 

This card would be perfect for a crafty friend or a budding artist.  Perhaps a student going off to art school?  So many possibilities!

Have a great Saturday!

Cityscape Birthday Card

**For your chance to win a FREE stamp set - play along with Squeeze-A-Palooza!  Details can be found HERE**

Happy Friday, FSS fans.  Chunyuan here to share a birthday card.  Both the cityscape and the speech bubble are from the On Trend 2013 set.

I stamped the cityscape with VersaMark ink and then brushed on Perfect Pearls in gold and blue.  Click on the image to see more details.  I used a strip of DCWV blue glitter paper to ground the city scape.

I super love all the elements that are part of the On Trend 2013 set!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Thursday!  Val here today sharing with you a birthday card for my daughter who turns 20 today.  How fun to be able to make her a card to show on my "day" here on the FSS blog using the cute high top from String Me Along!  (She is the proud owner of a new pair of black Converse, so how appropriate!)  

I also used Words to Live By and You Said It, Sister to create this card whose layout was inspired by none other than FSS very own Amy K.

Sweet Life

**For your chance to win a FREE stamp set - play along with Squeeze-A-Palooza!  Details can be found HERE**

Hi....Amy K. here with a quick and easy card using The Sweet Life.  As the school year nears the end, we usually end up needing quite a few "teacher" cards to say just a little something.  I thought this sentiment would be perfect for my youngest to write her teacher a note!!

To stamp the apple, I stamped the red "apple" first with the BACKSIDE of the stitched apple stamp.  Flip it back over and stamp with the stitched side.  You get this great look WITHOUT the coloring.....which is right up my alley.  :)

you make life sweet

Trendy Flair

Hey there, it's Maureen here!  Many stampers struggle with boy/masculine cards, myself included.  But looking through my FSS stash I found that many sets lend themselves to that theme.

Here I combined On Trend 2013, Breath of Fresh Flair and Background Check to create a card perfect for any tween or teenaged boy.  Don't be afraid to layer your stamped images over one another.  You can get some really fun and funky looks by doing this!
