SNSS July Mini Blog Hop Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Mini Blog
 hops celebrating the July release sets.  Today we're showcasing two sets,
the uplifting and encouraging Faith and the beautiful Delightful Doilies by Dina Kowal. 

I used Pebbles Seen and Noted dp and dipped into my flower 
stash to find some matching blooms.  
What a fantastic sentiment by Corrie Ten Boom,
 I just couldn't wait to use it!  It's stamped in Versafine Black Onyx.  
To separate the dp panels I added three strands of twine.  

Here are the details of this useful, encouraging set:

The set includes 7 sentiments.
It measures 4" x 4 ".
It's designed by Korin Sutherland.
The price is $11.

I went for a clean and simple look using this gorgeous new set called Delightful Doilies, just stamping the largest doily in Stampin Up's Melon Mambo ink.  
The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx. 
What a beautiful quote, I love to make cards showing appreciation 
for good friends!
  I added a matching rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and some pearls in various sizes to finish.  

Here's another card I made for today's Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoaststampers honouring Jeanne Jachna, aka akeptlife.

I sponged a background with Stampin Up's Gable Green, Yoyo Yellow and Melon Mambo ink before spritzing with water and dabbing with a cloth to lift a bit of colour.  I then spritzed with Melon Mambo ink, before stamping the doilies across the card in the same colours, and adding pearls to finish.  I was trying to honour Jeanne's bright style and CASEing THIS card - hope I haven't overdone it on the bright side!  

Here are the details of this gorgeous set:

 The set includes 7 images and 3 sentiments.
It measures approximately 8" x 6 ".
It's designed by Dina Kowal.
The price is $26.

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

All three - so bright and beautiful. Loved the first with its beautiful layout and nice bright colors. Then saw the second gorgeous creations. But after the third card, I knew I could not pick a favorite. Thank you for these wonderful ideas.
