SNSS: Springtime Sparrows



Good morning!

Today is the last day of our February new release blog hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  We are showcasing the beautiful Springtime Sparrows stamp set.  I love the images and sentiments Korin included in this set!


For my first card I cut the flying sparrow away from the large image so I could use it separately.  The floral image is from Nature Silhouettes.


The background is my latest obsession... embossed vellum.  This time I cut the vellum the same size as the pink card stock and then added it to the white card front.  I actually stapled the doily and the vellum to the pink card stock to adhere everything together.  The focal image hides the staples, so it works perfectly.


My second card uses the large image along with a sentiment in the corner.  I stamped it on Stampin Up's shimmery white card stock that was cut out with the top note die cut.  It's quite sparkly/shimmery in person but I couldn't get a good shot of that with the camera.

Check out all the beautiful projects below that the designers did for today's hop!  They outdid themselves again!  Remember to check out all the new stamps available over at SNSS!

These are both so lovely Jessica! I really like the papers and colors you chose. I like how you chose to focus on the bird in flight on your first card (is that embossed cardstock? It's gorgeous!) and the vibrant orange & blue in your second card, they look great together! Spectacular cards!
