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 Winter Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Winter Release Day Blog Hop!  This month we are doing something really fun...the Design Divas and the Digi Team are hopping together to celebrate the fabulous clear stamps, digis, and dies that are being released tonight!!  So grab a cuppa and maybe some of that yummy chocolate the kids collected this week :) and get ready for some amazing eye candy!  Don't forget to join us tonight at 8:00PM EST over at our member company forums at Splitcoaststampers.  We have a great Release Party planned.  There will be full reveals of all the new clear stamp sets, digis, and dies being released plus challenges and PRIZES!


If you have been following along already, you should have come from the talented Taylor Usry.  If you just happened to stop by, you may want to head over to the beginning of the hop at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog.  You won't want to miss any stops along the way!  If you happen to get lost, here is a complete list of all the bloggers hopping today:

I will be sharing several projects for two of the sets being released tonight.  




Cozy Friends is a whimsical winter set that contains two adorable winter friends and four matching sentiments.  This set is perfect for sending warm and cozy greetings to all your friends as well as for creating adorable gift tags for your Christmas packages.




Here is a card made with this cute set.


The two cozy friends were colored with copic markers.  Liquid appliqué gives texture to the fur and a Sharpie poster paint pen was used to add a pattern to the scarves.  Punched snowflakes, rhinestones, and Baker's twine finish the card.


And here's a gift tag using the same set.



This gift tag was made with a white and a poppy scalloped circle.  The white one was scored at the top and the poppy one attached above the score line so the tag flips open.  The polar bear was stamped on cryogen white card stock, cut with a circle nestie, colored with copics, and attached to the tag.  You'll find that both images work perfectly with your circle Nestabilities!  Some White Opal Liquid Pearls and glitter were added to the pom-pom.  The Baker's twine will be used to attach the tag to a Christmas gift.  And now...on to the second set!





God's Purpose includes a chickadee, two scripture verses, and three sentiments. This set is another wonderful addition to the other bird sets you can find at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.





And here is my sample for this beautiful set.


The sweet chickadee was also colored with copic markers.  The image is mounted on a Cheery Lynn doily die which was then adhered to a white panel impressed with a wood grain pattern.  Black felt ribbon, pearls, and a layered poinsettia complete the card.  


I think you'll agree that both of these sets would make wonderful additions to your stamp collection!


Now head on over to Margo Smith to see another amazing SNSS sample! But before you go, when you get to the end of the hop, stop back at the SNSS Blog and leave a comment to let us know what you think of the November release.  You won't want to miss this step because we've got a HUGE prize up for grabs...the ENTIRE NOVEMBER RELEASE valued at over $130!!!!...that's 6 stamp sets, 3 die sets, and 11 digis!  Tonight at the release party, we'll announce the randomly drawn winner from the comments made...PLUS...everyone who attends the release party will receive a free digi!


Have fun hopping...Hope to see you tonight!


Hugs,
Cathymac

Oh how cute! I love how you have both the polar bear and penguin on your card and how the embossed snowflake circles compliment the 2 images. Your gift tag is a great idea! Also, your God's Purpose card has such great colors! Love them all.

Crafty Math Chick said...

Oh Cahty - your cards are spectacular! I love both of your polar bear projects - the freckles you added are just too cute and I love the cranberry, pea green, and light blue color combination - SO pretty together! All the sparkly snowflakes really look terrific. And I ADORE your chickadee card - they are my favorite birds and you colored yours BEAUTIFULLY! And I really like plaid too so you combined two of my favorite things in your last card! :)

Donna Hanley said...

All of your presentations today are just beautiful. I love how you used the two images on your first card. Your little gift tag will certainly be a keeper for the recipient, that's for sure. And I just melt with that image of the chic-a-dee, but you really did a wonderful job with him. I love that doily die (that's going to be a must have for me) and your little poinsettia looks so special in that paper also. Your coloring on all three is just remarkable. Thanks so much for sharing.

Angie said...

Oh my!!! Both cards are amazing!! So fun to see both images together in one card!!! Love that idea. The bird is just stunning with the plaid behind it!!!
