Hi, and welcome to the SNSS May Release Blog Hop - so glad you could join us!  Once again, we've got some exciting new stamps and dies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to showcase for you today!  You'll want to visit each and every stop on the blog to enjoy all the inspiration - and don't forget to leave comments because one lucky commenter will win the entire release - they will be chosen randomnly from one of the blogs, and you've got until Saturday, May 5, 8:00 pm EST! Get comfy and enjoy each and every creation the Design Diva's have come up with....here's my first card:

I absolutely love this new set called Nature Silhouettes with it's birds, butterfly, dragonfly and various botanical images....the possibilities are absolutely endless, I feel like I could make cards all day with this one!
I chose to use the Queen Anne's Lace and thistle flower images here.
I sponged a sky using a cloud die-cut before stamping this scene.  I used a sentiment from the set God's Purpose...you can never have too many Thinking of You cards!  
The dp panel is stitched onto cardstock and I used a Memory Box vine die-cut.
Supplies include:
Paper Mill Shop White Linen cardstock
SU Melon Mambo, Old Olive cardstock
Echo Park Victoria Gardens dp
Ribbon
SU Cool Caribbean, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Cool Caribbean ink
Sewing Machine
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles Large, Small
Memory Box Delicate Vine die



I created this card  using a new set called Wedding Collage...the main image comes with all kinds of fabulous sentiments for the very special occasion!
I dry embossed the main panel and then embossed over that with gold ink and embossing powder for a thick enameled look.  I also embossed the edges of the image panel with gold ink though it's hard to see here.
The flourishes have been cut with metallic gold cardstock to match.
All edges have been sponged with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink.  
To finish I added gold cording and a vintage pearl brad.
This card actually fits in a square envelope because of the image at the top of the tent fold.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Wedding Collage
Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Gold embossing ink, powder
Versafine Black Onyx ink
Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink
Gold cord
Vintage button
Pearls
Paper Mill Shop cream linen cardstock
Fiskars Corner Rounder
