And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

SNSS Christmas in July Blog Hop


Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating Christmas in July!  What a perfect opportunity to get an early start on those Christmas cards and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some of the most wonderful images for the job!  Ready to see what the Design Divas and a few special friends have been up to with their Christmas stamps?  Take a look! If you've come from Monika's Blog, you've already seen some fabulous stamp sets in action.  If you just happened to stop by, be sure to begin at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog to read about how you can join in on this hop and win some prizes!




Creative Nugget:  For my sample, I used  the clear stamp set, Season of Love.  To begin, the silhouette image was stamped on Vintage Cream card stock and cut out with a square nestie.  The beams of light coming from the star were masked and sponged with Wild Honey Distress ink.  The rhinestones were colored with a copic marker and added to each star.  The patterned paper is from Graphic 45 and was layered onto True Black card stock.  All of the panels were layered onto a Vintage Cream card front.  A Spellbinders fancy label die was added to the bottom panel.  Some lace and ribbon were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink to age them.  Black rhinestones complete the card.


Lots of great things are happening at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps during these pre-holiday festivities!  ALL Christmas clear stamps are 20% off through Wednesday, July 25.  Three new holiday sets are available in the store right now!  You can get them before they are released in September and October...AND if you buy them now, you can take advantage of the sale price!

Every order of $25 in Christmas clear stamps will receive Gingerbread Man, a darling new 2" x 2" mini clear set.  And as always, all clear stamp orders of $50 or more get this month's free w/ stamp set, Christmas Candle (while supplies last).


Now head on over to see Mary Faus for more Christmas sweetness! Here is a list of the bloggers participating in the hop in case you get lost along the way!


And what's the best part about Christmas in July?  We want YOU to play along with us!  Use Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to create a Christmas project and link it below to join in our Customer blog hop.  You have until Sunday, July 22 at 11:59 PM EST to play along.  One randomly selected participant will receive their choice of one Christmas clear stamp set!


Thanks so much for hopping with us today.  I can't wait to see your Christmas creations!


Hugs,
Cathymac
