Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome!  You're going to love the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April release sets and dies and I hope you're ready for some fabulous spring inspiration from the design team today! 

I simply LOVE this new set Treasured.  Along with the beautiful flower and butterfly, there are a number of sentiments which you can combine to let the ladies in your life know how much you treasure them!
I used one of my favorite color combo's on this one.  I stamped the flower several times so that I could pop up various layers of petals, then used flowersoft for the center - IRL I'm amazed at how realistic it looks!
The butterfly has been stamped twice and the wing popped up for dimension. 
I sponged the circle with ink to match the dp and popped it up on an MFT Dizzy Doily.

Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Treasured
MFT Dizzy Doily Die-namic
Cosmo Cricket dp
SU Real Red cardstock
October Afternoon button
Sewing machine

This is my favorite Rhubarb set ever - I love him in his little bee-suit - it's called Bee-happy Rhubarb.
I popped him up on a dp circle and then stamped the "bees in flight" several times across the bottom.
I used the Sweet 'n Sassy stamps banner die from the Pennants and More Dies set for the sentiment, then trimmed the edges for a smaller look before stitching it down.
Supplies include:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Bee-happy Rhubarb
October Afternoon dp
Ric Rac
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles
MFT Jumbo Scallops Die-namic
Sewing machine
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Versafine Black Onyx ink
