Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "October Release Day"

oct2012-bloghopVSD


Hello dear friends and Happy Release Day to you!!  The SNSS DT has been busy preparing for today's fabulous blog hop and virtual stamp day and we hope you will join us in celebrating our newest stamp sets--this month we are focusing on Christmas!
The blog hop starts at Sweet ' n Sassy Stamps Blog. We've got lots of eye candy to share that will certainly put you in the holiday mood. :)  Be sure not to miss a single stop along the way because we'll be drawing one lucky commenter from a random DT blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

I created 2 projects for you today:

Merry Christmas: This card is really a "Clean and Simple" one. It took me only 10 minutes from start to finish. I used "Old Fashioned Christmas" Set.
Card base is Kraft Cardstock. The image and sentiment were stamped on Ivory CS in Archival Black Ink. I added a little bit of Glitter to the image. I punched the top corners and add 3 pearls. Added a bow and it was done :)

Glittery Poinsettia: This card is more my style :) I used "Poinsettias" set.  The Poinsettia was stamped twice on White Cs and color with Copic Markers. Added Glitter on leaves and poinsettia edges, the center was covered with Gold Gala Glitz. The sentiment was stamped on Ivory cardstock in Archival Black Ink. A lot of distressing and stitches.
