SNSS May Blog hop event!


Good morning!

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps May release blog hop event!  Today, Korin has added seven new stamp sets to her online store.  We'd also like to invite you to the May Release Party that will be held at Splitcoast tonight.  There will be challenges and lots of fun chatter - we'd love to have you join us!


My first card uses the adorable Gone Fishing stamp set - I am in LOVE with this cute puppy!  My dad loves to fish, so I may need to save this card to give to him.  I decided to pull out my colored pencils, odorless mineral spirits, and blending stumps for my card today and I'm so glad I did!  I haven't used them in so long and forgot how easy they are to use and the fun looks you can get by blending colors together.  The puppy and his fishing hat ended up just like I wanted him too... love that!

Card Details
Stamps: Gone Fishing (SNSS)
Ink: Memento; Versafine
Card stock: SU
Other: PTI texture plate; Colored pencils, odorless mineral spirits, blending stumps; MFT border and label dies; SU ribbon

Next, is a card with the new Wedding Cake stamp set.  Since 'wedding' season is coming upon us, I'm very happy to have this set in my stash.  I really like this cake image - it was fun to color with Copics!  One of the teachers I work with is getting married this summer soon after school is done and her colors are grey and purple... thus the color choices on my card!  I believe I'll give this one to her on her big day!

Card Details

Since I'm at the end of the hop, you may have already visited all the blogs on today's hop, if not please check out these links for even more inspiration using all the stamp sets being release today!  Be sure to leave comments along the way, as Korin will be drawing one name from all the commens to win the entire release!  All the details for the big giveaway will be on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog.



Have a wonderful rest of your day!
Happy hopping -
Jessica
