New Release Roundup!

Hello Friends,  today the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Design Team is doing a roundup of all the Christmas sets we show cased this month! 
My first card is made with Poinsettias & Candles by Diane Zechman, I think this is my favorite of the sets.I used water color markers to color and the paper is by Authentique.
 This next set is called Christmas Wreath by Rebecca Rios,  I love this set because it can be used all year round.   Again I used water colors and the paper is by Authentique. 
 Last but not least I am using this cute little penguin from the Holiday Hugs set which is by Diane Zechman.
The background papers are from BoBunny.  I sure hope you made your way to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store and got some of these awesome sets - 9 new ones in total.

Christmas Wreath


 Happy Friday everyone.  Today I am showcasing another set from the Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Release. This set is called Christmas Wreath designed by Rebecca Rios such a versatile set and you do not have to use it for just Christmas it could be used for any season.

This first card is using the traditional red and green Christmas colors. I stamped the wreath then the berries I added stickles to the berries for some bling and definition and then I stamped the bow and fussy cut it and popped it up on foam tape.  The paper is from Authentique.

This next card uses non-traditional colors, I love it done both ways!  Again I stamped the wreath this time on watercolor paper and then the berries and added stickles for pop.  This paper is from BoBunny.

Happy Thursday friends, yes, Christmas is right around the corner and you can never start to early working on your stash of Christmas cards.  I have 2 cards to share with you today both showing sets from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamp's  Christmas release.
This first one is using Holiday Hugs, such a cute little set created by Diane Zechman. I made a shaker card using paper from BoBunny.

This next card I think is my favorite of all the ones I have made with the new release. It is using Poinsettias & Candles also created by Diane Zechman. I paired it with this beautiful paper by Authentique. Don't forget you can get the 2016 Christmas sets in the Christmas bundle for a great discounted price of only $119.95 for 9 sets that is an awesome deal!

Christmas at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

 Hello friends, today we are showcasing 2 of the new Christmas Stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Today we have Holiday Hugs and Poinsettia and Candles both designed by Diane Zechman.

 My first card is from the Holiday Hugs Set, a sweet/fun set awesome to make great kids cards!  I colored with watercolors and the paper is from BoBunny. 

s
This card is using Poinsettia and Candles, it did not turn out quite how I saw it in my head but I like it none the less.  I used watercolors again and ran the ribbon through some distress ink to "dirty" it up a bit.
