Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog Hop


Hello dear friends and Happy Release Day to you!!  The SNSS DT has been busy preparing for today's fabulous blog hop and virtual stamp day and we hope you will join us in celebrating our newest stamp sets--this month we are focusing on Christmas! 

We have lots of eye candy to share that will certainly put you in the holiday mood. :)  Be sure not to miss a single stop along the way because we'll be drawing one lucky commenter from a random DT blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

Today I am showcasing two Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sets, the first is Seek him Still:

I embossed the image using Versafine Oynx Black ink and clear embossing powder and sponged it with distress inks. After cutting it out, I layered it onto a scored background. This is such a beautiful stamp set and sure to be used for many Christmas cards in my house this year.

Next I have a card to share that I made using Old Fashioned Christmas:


The image in this set reminds me of  Currier & Ives!  It gives a country feel to Christmas which is just my style.

Here's the list of stops along the hop today:

After you're done hopping we invite you to join us for a fun day of challenges during our Virtual Stamp Day in our Splitcoaststampers Member Company Forum.  We're giving away more fun prizes so you won't want to miss it!
Enjoy the hop and happy stamping!! 

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

You really know how to work those silhouttes, Jennie - love the white, crisp, clean space on the first one, and the pearls and bow on the second one really do add to a Currier and Ives look!

Kim said...

Good stuff Jennie! I love your first card on the kraft with the star highlighted and the pearls on the second are the perfect accent!

Teri said...

Oh, Jennie - the yellow glow for the wisemen is truly lovely. And you have perfectly captured a Currier and Ives look!

Seek him still! I wish we would all do that. We would be "wise men in a wise world". The card is beautiful in a golden setting. The other card looks like a Christmas picture. The bow and the pearls set it off. Thanks for your expert work.
