SNSS August Release Mini Hop Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Mini Blog Hops showcasing the August Release sets and today we're highlighting a fab set by Diane Zechman 



For my first card, I cut a circle using Nestabilities Circles
 before paper piecing a little scene as a background for the sweet little ewe!
 I used Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Beach dies for the sun and the 
Clouds and Raindrops Die set for the little clouds.
This card is also for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoaststampers 
today honouring Joyce, aka ashjoy and here is the card from her gallery which inspired me.


I got this set just in time for creating a wedding card I was needing,
and the two little birds are perfect with this sweet sentiment.
 They're coloured with copics and popped  up on a die-cut using one of the little dies from the newly released Bookmarks and More die set.
 All of the hearts are cut using SNSS's Heart dies except for the largest which I cut free
hand in a matching folksy style.  I finished the card with a few little scattered pearls.

Now check out the whole set below and all the details - look at how versatile it is! 
I haven't even got to use the beautiful sunflowers yet!



Stamp set includes 7 images and 5 sentiments.
Set measures approsimately 4" x 6".
The large sunflower image measures aproximately 2 1/4" .
Designed by Diane Zechman.
Priced at $15.


Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

These are all just fabulous!! That first one is spectacular! Love it!

OMGoodness I can't choose because I love both! I have always admired your framed cards. One of these days I may get the technique down (with the appropriate stitching *giggle*). Your little lamb is right on the hillside where he should be.

The love birds!? I ask myself time and time again when I see your designs ~ "Susie, why didn't you think of that!?" I'm still a study in process, Bridget : )

Beautiful cards today my friend.
