SNSS November Release Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps November Release Blog Hop 
showcasing the newly released stamps and dies.

Today we're highlighting Tender Thoughts with it's matching Birch Forest die set and 
the sentiment set of Sympathy Innies.

Tender Thoughts is a beautiful set to create scenes of serenity for any season!
 I embossed the trees in white and
then added a snow bank in creamy white for the sentiment.
The background was created using Stampin Up dp.
The deer was stamped in Stampin Up's Soft Suede ink and the birds in Real Red.

For my second card I used the Birch Forest Dies to create a forest background
before embossing in white and popping them up on a kraft card base.
The grass is cut using the SNSS Fence and Grass Dies and the sentiment from Sympathy Innies
is stamped on an oval cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Ovals.
Again inks used are Stampin Up's Soft Suede and Real Red.

Here are the complete sets with all the details:

Stamp set includes 7 images and 3 sentiments.
Birch trees measure approximately 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches.
The deer measures approximately 1 3/4 x 2 inches.
Designed by Korin Sutherland.
Stamp set - $15.
Die set - $25.75.

Stamp set includes 7 sentiments.
Set measures approximately 4 x 6 inches.

Bridget I love the dp in the first card. And placing the focal panel on top of red just pulls everything together so beautifully. I love the color combo.

Your second card is equally as nice. I love little scenes made from die cuts. You're so right this set has wonderful versatility.

These are both so beautiful in their own ways! The first catches by eye because of the color combo and the red birds. And snowflakes...and paper... And I love the woodland scene you created in the second card!!

Terri (blindstamper) said...

I so love the light blue and red combo!

Lee Ann Barrett said...

Wow, Bridget! Both cards are beautiful; your first one wows me! Maybe it is because I am into blue this Christmas season, or maybe it is true "Bridget style"! Whatever the reason, it is such an eye catcher-fresh and festive!
