Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April release blog hop!
All of the Design Divas are excited to kick things off today with a fun blog hop full of inspiration using the sets that will be available for purchase in the store tonight. Ready to get started? If you've arrived here from Korin's blog, you're right on track for the hop.
I was assigned to work with two adorable new stamp sets and this first one is one of my favorites of the entire release! It's called Owl Be There - check out this adorable owl!?! Isn't she the sweetest? I paper pieced her and added her to this scrappy card. The size is around 5" x 5 1/2", by the way. I wanted to add a sentiment to it, but couldn't figure out where to put it, so I stamped it on a tab die and tucked it on the side.
Stamps: Owl Be There (SNSS)
Card stock: SU; Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe dp
Other: Lace; red twine from The Twinery; Sizzix leaf die; MFT tab and large scallop dies; corner rounder; Tim Holtz ruler & paper piercer; wild orchid flower
My next card uses an image and sentiment from the new Special Boy Cocoa - the same set I used to make yesterday's birthday card for Korin. Check out those fun new dies too - grass and fence die strips! They are sold together as a set and are fun to use together to make scenes like this one, don't you think?
