Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July Release Hop!


Welcome!

Today the designers from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps are joining together to celebrate our July Release!  If you arrived on my blog from Cathy's blog, you are on track for today's hop.  And the best news - all the new stamps (along with a bundle of all the new products) are available for purchase right now HERE!  We'd also like to invite you to join our special Virtual stamp Day over on Splitcoast that will be filled with release challenges, chatter, and lots of samples from this release!  


Buckle up - I've got lots of cards to share with you for today's hop! My first card uses the newest in our Cookie the Mouse collection: Cheerleader Cookie and one of our new decorative plaque dies!  She is pretty sweet all paper pieced, don't you think?  I used Korin's sketch for this week over on SCS for my card:

Card Details
Stamps: Cheerleader Cookie (SNSS)
Ink: Versafine black

Card stock: MME patterned; PTI white
Other: Spellbinder circle & blossom dies; SNSS plaque die; Copic markers; Basic Grey buttons; PeaPod & flax twinery twine; sewing machine

My next card uses the new Words of Jesus stamp set.  Korin has included some beautiful Bible verse in this set - it's now one of my favorite sets.  I stamped it on a rectangle spellbinder die and layered it on one of the new SNSS plaque dies.  I don't know if you can see it, but I stamped one of the images from the new Decorative Frame Toppers.

Card Details
Stamps: Words of Jesus; Decorative Frame Toppers (SNSS)
Ink: Versafine; yellow versacraft ink

Card stock: October Afternoon patterned; PTI solid
Other: Lil Inker designs bow die; doily; PTI impression plate; pearl glimmer mist; rectangle nestability die; SNSS plaque die; recollections rose

This next card uses the new Dream Big stamp set along with one of our new decorative plaque dies.  I'm hostessing one of the challenges going on over at SCS today for our big release party event.  My challenge is to use a die cut with patterned paper - easy, right?  I choose a deep, red patterned paper for my die cut and paper pieced the flowers to help them pop out a bit from the paper.  Look for my challenge post to be up at 4pm EST today over on SCS here.

Card Details
Stamps: Dream Big (SNSS)
Ink: Versafine

My last card is for Cathy's sketch challenge that will be revealed a bit later today in the SCS forum.  It uses the new Sheltering Cherry Blossom stamp set.
