Hello and welcome to the SNSS Birthday Blog Hop! We're celebrating four wonderful years and we're so glad you joined us today! I've loved working with sweet and gifted Korin and the fabulous team of designers at Sweet n' Sassy Stamps plus getting to know many of the fans who love using SNSS images, sentiments and products!
36 fantastic design team members, both past and present, along with some special friends have put together our hop which will take place over three days, so there's plenty of time to stop and visit each blog. You have until 11:59 pm EST on November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. On Saturday, November 12th, Sweet n' Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners which will be chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop. Each of the four winners will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper and twine valued at $40! The more comments the better your chance of winning!
If you've been following along alread you should ahve come from the fantastic blog of Sandy Domelle.
If you're only starting here, you can head back to the SNSS blog and go from there so you don't miss any stops along the way!
Here's what I created for the hop today:
This was made using a brand new set just released last Thurday called God's Purpose. I wanted a somewhat CAS look so I left a lot of white space to go with the bright turquoise and red. The image is colored with copics and cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles. It's popped up on a lacy oval cut with a Marianne Creatables die. I went for a simple "thinking of you" sentiment because as far as I'm concerned, you can never have too many cards with that simple but meaningful message! I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the red berries and a corner rounder for the bottom corners.
Other supplies include:
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Echo Park dp
SU Real Red, Tempting Turquoise cardstock
And in honor of the birthday I'm going to share a card I made back in April while on Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen design team - these cards are exclusively for the inspiration of the SCS Fan Club, but because it's a very special occasion I'm making an exception and sharing one of my favorite cards ever using SNSS!
I layered the sentiment strip across the dp before cutting the circle with a Nestie and used Sweet n' Sassy Stamps Tulips Digital Stamp and the sentiment is from their Flower Sentiments digi set.
Other supplies used include:
MFT small scallops Die-namic
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles, Butterflies Two
My Minds Eye, SU dp
Thank you so much
