Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Release Blog Hop

Welcome!  So glad you've joined us to see the fabulous new releases from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for the month of March!  If you've been hopping you've probably arrived from Dina's absolutely wonderful blog, but if not and you want to start at the beginning, go back to the SNSS blog so you don't miss anything!

I created this using the new set To Paris with Love - what a pretty image and so easy to work with!  There are also four French phrases along with an "Oooooh La La"!  I stamped and heat embossed the image in black and then sponged two colors of ink to match my dp.  I distressed the edges of the cream panel and stitched the dp.  Finishing touches are a seam binding bow and a rose along with black pearls and flourishes.
The seam binding was dyed with Copic ink G00 Jade Green.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps To Paris With Love
SU Pool Party, Blushing Bride ink
Copic ink G00 Jade Green
Seam binding
Prima rose
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish
Sewing machine
Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink
Black embossing ink

Next is a card using the new set Ticket Sentiments - this is a set that I'll be reaching for again and again - the sentiments include:
Doesn't that cover a whole lot of card making!!!
I sponged the edges of all the dp with Ranger Distress ink for a vintage look and then stitched all the panels.
There's a fabulous new die set that includes a ticket die which is at the top of my "wish list",  but for the moment I simply cut the straight edges and then used a pair of scissors with a postage stamp edge to cut the ticket ends.  I added a bow, button and flowers to complete my card.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Ticket Sentiments
Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink
October Afternoon dp
Sewing Machine
October Afternoon button
Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts)
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Postage Stamp edge scissors

Here's another one using Ticket Sentiments, this one was so fun to make!  I distressed all edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink and stitched up all the panels.  This was mae using last weeks sketch over at Splitcoaststampers given to us by Korin.  All of the stars were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Stars with only twine and brads for embellishments to keep it masculine as a thankyou for a guy.  The ends of the tickets were again cut with postage stamp edging scissors but don't forget to check out the fantastic new die set which includes a ticket die!
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Ticket Sentiments

Awww... you made my birthday card early this year! ;) ;) ;)
All kidding aside - all three of your cards are terrific, and your stitching is fantastic as always. The color scheme and flowers on the birthday card do make it my favorite of the three.
