SNSS January Release blog hop!



Hi there!

Welcome to the Sweet n Sassy January blog hop!



Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has an amazing release planned for this month, and the Design Divas are so excited about it!  Eight new clear stamp sets and three new sets of dies will be available in the store tonight.  Make sure you've got a warm, tasty beverage and some donuts ready....you won't want to miss a bit of the inspiration we have for you today!

My first card uses a new stamp set illustrated by Dina Kowal called Together Silhouettes... it's simply adorable!  Even more special - Dina's children were the models for her stamp set:  I stamped the silhouette image in black versafine ink and then layered the coordinating umbrella image over it after I paper pieced it with some patterned paper.




Card Details
Stamps:  Together Silhouettes; Amazing Grace (SNSS)
Ink: Versafine black
Card stock: Neenah ivoary; SU river rock & textured green
Other: SU textured folder; EK Success oval punch; Punch Bunch leaf punch; Wild Orchid flowers; SU ribbon; Martha Stewart butterfly punch; copper nailheads

Next, is a new adorable Cocoa Valentine stamp set called Cocoa's Tasty Treats.


Cocoa looks like he's right at home nestled in those chocolate candies, doesn't he?  It's hard to tell in my photo but I added a layer of Crystal lacquer to the candies for a bit of shine.

Card Details
Stamps: Cocoa's Tasty Treats (SNSS)
