Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps DT Favorites Blog Hop

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating 5 fabulous years this month!  There's a lot of fun planned starting with today's DT Favorites blog hop - and the best part is that all of the sets that the design team have have featured are on sale - 25% off today through November 7th!  I hope you enjoy all the inspiration from the creations using our favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sets!  

For my first card I've used Everyday Miracles - I don't know how many times I've reached for this beautiful set over the past couple of years since I got it! I colored the butterfly with copics and popped it up over a Cheery Lynn Design flourish for lots of dimension.  Since we're working with favorites, I had to use pearls and stitching too!
Supplies include:
Pebbles Country Picnic dp
SU Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade dp
Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish die
MFT Jumbo Scallops die
Sewing machine
Memento Tuxedo black Ink

For my second card I've used Poppies and Greetings and Vintage Postcard.   Poppies and Greetings has various sentiments in a beautiful font which I use all the time with a variety of other sets, but this time I simply used the beautiful poppies image.
Vintage Postcard is so much fun, you can use any combo of the many postal images included to create everything from shabby chic to CAS!
I distressed the main panel with a distressing tool and inks and colored the image with copics.
Supplies include:
SU Festive Prints dp
SU Cherry Cobbler card stock
MFT Simply Scallops Die-namic
Vintage button
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink

As always - your cards are beautiful! I love your paper choices for Everyday Miracles - the dainty flowers and the fun polka dots are the perfect backdrop for that vivid butterfly. And your big red bow and the pearls/scallops are the perfect touch!
