SNSS: Natures' Silhouettes 2


Good morning!

Welcome to day 3 of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March release blog hop!  Today is fun day because we are showing a beautiful silhouette stamp set that has a coordinating die set called Birds and Feathers available too.  It's called Nature's Silhouette 2 and works wonderfully with so many of our other SNSS sets.

Here's the photo of the full stamp set and the die set:




My first card is a sympathy card because when I first saw this stamp set, my first thoughts were that it will make beautiful sympathy, encouragement, and masculine cards.  Sometime simple is best with those themes, so that what I went with for both of my cards today.  

After stamping the flower on a die cut, I spritzed a coordinating light blue marker ink to soften it a bit.  Then, I stamped the coordintating bird image on the die cut in the same blue ink.  
The sentiment is from Script Sentiments.


I love the colors of my second card - yellow, white, and kraft... so spring-y, which is exactly what I need after our dreary weekend of rain and fog.  When looking through my SNSS sets for a sentiment, I found this one from the Make a Wish stamp set and thought it worked perfectly!  The font almost looks  like it could have been written with an old feather, dipped in ink like they did in the old days!  lol!

Once again, check out all the photos below for all the other designer's projects with today's featured stamp and die set!  Leave comments along the way for a chance to win them for yourself!

Happy Hopping!
Jessica
