Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July Release Blog Hop


Hello and welcome the Sweet 'n Sassy July Release Blog Hop - with summer in full swing, we've got some fantastic stamps and dies to showcase for you today!  To add to the fun we've got a Virtual Stamp Day going on at Splitcoaststampers in the SNSS members forum with some great challenges to inspire you.
The full release is immediately available in the SNSS store and you can also get a free stamp set with a $50 purchase!

One very lucky hopper will win the entire July release - the winner will be picked at random from comments left on DT blogs and you have until Friday, July 13th at midnight EST to comment.
Here's my first card:
I love silhouettes so the minute I laid eyes on the set The Sea I couldn't wait to start sponging (and have been practicing some brayering too.)
I then used some of the beautiful accents from a set called Decorative  Frame Toppers along the middle panel to highlight both the oval image panel and the sentiment.  I masked a circle so that I could add a pink sun to create a sunset scene.
Supplies include:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Ovals
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
SU Cool Caribbean, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride ink
Sizzix plaid embossing folder
Sewing Machine

For my second card I've used the fantastic new set, Decorative Frame Toppers, which has matching dies called Decorative Plaques.  There are four beautiful label shapes in the die set and a whole variety of ways to add highlight sentiments and images with the accents included in the Decorative Frame Toppers set.
I sponged around the plaque die cut and then used an encouraging Bible verse from a previously released set called Under His Wings.  The pearls have been colored with copics to match the color scheme.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Decorative Plaques dies
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Decorative Frame Toppers
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Under His Wings
Lily Bee Designs Double Dutch dp
Marianne Designs bird and branch die
MFT Pinking Edge Die-namic
Twine
Pearls
Copics
Ranger Distress Shabby Shutters ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink




I couldn't resist making another card with the Decorative Plaques dies and Decorative Frame Toppers stamps, this time using a verse from the newly released The Sea set.  I added some popped up seashells colored with copics from the set Beauty by the Sea.  The pearls were colored with copics.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Decorative Plaques dies
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Decorative Frame Toppers
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps The Sea
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Beauty by the Sea
Lily Bee Designs Handmade dp
SU Poppy Parade cardstock
