SNSS August Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps August release blog hop!  All of the August releases are available right here. Hope you can join us over on in the SNSS forum on SCS for the party as well as a fabulous set of challenges throughout the day! 
The first card I have to share with you today is Leaf Silhouettes

I stamped the leaves using Morocco, Olive Grove, and Peanut Brittle Memento ink.  Then I spritzed it with some Rich Cocoa Fireworks spray.  The sentiment was stamped and die cut with a Spellbinders die and attached with some baker's twine.  

And here is one using Tree Background:

I stamped the tree image with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder. I created the moon by masking (using a sticky note that I punched with a circle punch and used as a mask with Versamark and clear embossing powder).   Then I sponged liberally with distress inks and stamped the sentiment from Leaf Silhouettes.


Hope you can join us for our Virtual Stamp Day over on SCS.  There will be 3 winners from the challenges who will each win a $20 credit to the store.


Also, be sure to hop along today as one random commenter on a random DT member's blog will win two sets of their choice from the release
 (must comment by 8:00 PM EST today)

Jennie Harper * you are here

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
