SNSS New Release Friday Feature

Hello and welcome once again to the Sweet 'n Sassy 
Stamps New Release Friday Feature!
The Design Team have come up with some 
fabulous samples to inspire you today using 
some of the newly released products. 
If you'd like to see the winner of last week's challenge, 
picked randomly, check the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog.
This week's featured stamp set is 
Love Birds and the matching Love Birds Dies.

I used the SNSS Clouds and Raindrops Dies to make a 
negative die-cut panel, adding a hand drawn wire.  I've found 
that by making a little template with a piece of card and a 
craft knife, and then tracing the edge with a black fine line marker,
I get a more even, straight look to create the "wires".
I also sponged a little bit of ink around the edges for definition.
The love birds are coloured with copics and popped up, 
and I chose two sentiments to combine for a fun anniversary card.
All in all, a quick card, not too difficult, 
with an effort to keep a somewhat clean look!

Now check out the full sets with the details below.

Stamp set measures approximately 6" x 4".
The branch measures approximately 4 1/4" x 2".
The love birds measure approximately 2" x 1 1/4".
Both sets designed by Korin Sutherland.
Stamp set priced at $15.
Die set priced at $14.50.
Bundle price is $26.50.

Our challenge to you this week is to use a bird on your creation.  The first cards 
in the hop were created for your inspiration by the Design Team.  
As you hop along, it would be great to hear your thoughts in a comment, then 
create your own card with a bird and use the linky tool to add it to the gallery!
Just a few guidelines to remember as you play:
- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to enter, 
although we love it when you do!
- You'll have until Thursday, May 8th at midnight EST to enter.
-  We'll draw 1 winner from this week's challenge to 
receive a $10 credit to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
- Please use code SNSFFC10 when uploading
to Splitcoaststampers or other galleries.
- Share a link to your creation below.

Thanks for joining us today!  Be sure to check back again on Friday, 
May 9th to see if you won and to check out the next Friday Feature and Challenge!

I just love the simplicity. Few do it as well as you. Very pretty.

so cute Bridget! I love the color of the birds and the way you used recessed the clouds rather than using the die cuts themselves.

Cynthia said...
