Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has an amazing release planned for this month, and the Design Divas are so excited about it! Eight new clear stamp sets and three new sets of dies will be available in the store tonight. Make sure you've got a warm, tasty beverage and some donuts ready...you won't want to miss a bit of the inspiration we have for you today!
Creative Nugget: The background for this wonderful sentiment was created by scribbling several colors of copic marker on a large acrylic block. This was then spritzed with some colorless blender solution. A piece of Neenah Solar White card stock was smooshed and twisted on the block, picking up the color. This gave my paper a soft watercolor look. I couldn't resist adding a silhouette image taken from another fabulous set being released tonight. The image was cut with a Spellbinder labels die and mounted on pieces of patterned DP by Echo Park. Other elements on this card include a Cheery Lynn doily and flourish die, some heart trim, pearls, a layered flower, and some messy stitching. The whole card was then given a shot of Tattered Angels, giving it a very shimmery look which was hard to capture on the photo.
My next sample comes from an adorable clear stamp set called "You & Me." This set is not only perfect for creating those cute Valentine cards you will need to make, but gentle reminders of your feelings for special friends throughout the year! It will sell for $15 and includes 5 images and 12 matching sentiments.
Creative Nugget: Aren't these salt and pepper shakers just the cutest? They were colored with copic markers. The salt was made with a White poster-paint pen and jelly roll marker and the pepper was made with a black Spica glitter pen and the white poster-paint pen. The shakers were then covered with a layer of Glossy Accents to make them look like glass. This was then cut with a circle die and mounted onto a fancy tags die. The faux blanket stitched DP was mounted on some heart embossed Select White card stock. The card was finished with some ribbon, pearls, and a little heart charm I had in my stash!
And now take a look at the rest of the Design Divas (and our very special January guest)...they've all whipped up some gorgeousness today!
We hope you can make plans to join us tonight in our Member Company forums over on Splitcoaststampers. We're having a Release Party, and it is full of great activities, stamp set reveals, and fun with friends! All of the partying will take place in our Release Party forum, so be sure to bookmark it! Hope to see you there!
