Together Silhouette

Together Silhouettes
Love this Dina Kowal set from the January release! This fabulous set was created with her children as the modeling for the design. Isn’t she creative? Together Silhouette can be purchased at Sweet’nSassy’s online store. I have been wanting to combine this image with the cloud & raindrop dies from SNSS! Love how it turned out! Each die cut piece is placed on the card using dimensionals to give it depth.
I combined it with some of my favourite 6x6 paper pads from MME. The sentiment is one of five sentiments that come in this set.
Materials used: Together Silhouette stamp set, Cloud & Raindrop SNSS die, MME paper pad, Spellbinder die, twine, versafine ink, SU ink

ODBD Let your Light Shine January Winner ~

Today is a happy day ~ I found out I won the Let your Light Shine Challenge I entered in January. You can see my original post Titled "The Few, The Proud"  by clicking on the title. It won the layout challenge for the month of January. I submitted the layout in honour of our Marine son who is deploying this week and used it as part of decor for a Surprise Going Away party his friends threw for him this past weekend. I cannot wait to tell him I won the challenge!

Thanks for sharing in my excitement :-)

It's Saturday!!! I love weekends where I get to do what I want...most weekends, I am either teaching a class or taking a class (my husband and I are involved in prayer ministry) This particular weekend, we are more flexible and ending our corporate 21 day fast....can we say, have our cake and eat it too?? lol

Over at Splitcoaststampers SNSS members forum, You will find some amazing challenges to whet your appetite(speaking of food) for more creativity! This one I am featuring is Giovana's challenge SNSSFEB12RP03 from the release party on Thursday night.

I stamped my morning Glory onto copic friendly cs and coloured using copics, after die cutting, I sponge swiped the edges using my dauber from the outside in to create a soft frame. I stitched the outside edge of my dp onto the base and layered my other pieces onto the card. I love this set!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!

Cathy's Egg-Citing Recipe challenge ~

stamps: Egg-cited Cocoa
papers: MME Vanity Fair, SU
Inks: memento, copics, distress inks, Su
accessories: ribbon, mspunch, snss dies, spellbinder die, su punch

I love a great creative challenge...especially when it ends up in the trash bin a couple times before you succeed. I had an idea in mind and it was just out of reach a few times! lol...

This was a challenge to the Release party attendees on Splitcoaststampers last night. The amazing diva Cathy challenged us to a 1,2,3,4,5 recipe challenge SNSSFEB12RP02. I stamped Cocoa for my one image and used a sentiment and pulled two coordinating dsp(not too hard with MME paper stacks), used three die cuts on my card (SNSS lacey eyelet border, heart scallop - used the mini hearts on my sentiment, spellbinder fancy tag) four colours are shown on my image, finally I used five embellishments(ribbon & pearls) on my finished card.

It was fun once I got my act together...believe me it was a juggling act with the waste can at first. haha...

Visit the company member forum and join in the fun! You might win some stamps :-)

SNSS February Release HOP ~

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February New Release Blog Hop!  This month's release is so exciting  - it was even released a week early as a surprise! Get your warm beverage and tasty snack, and get ready for some amazing inspiration from the Design Divas!
If you came here from Kim Schofield's blog you are right where you need to be...if not, scroll down to view the full list, diva creativity begins at SNSS blog.

Stamps: YOU
Papers: SU, SU dsp, coffee filters
Inks: versafine, Tim Holtz distress inks
accessories: MS punch, SNSS die, pearls, ribbon
I love this new YOU set designed by DKdesign exclusive to Sweet n Sassy! The sentiments are perfect for scrapbook pages, gift tags, elegant cards etc. the possibilities are endless. I chose to make an 8x8 layout for a shadowbox. 

My colour scheme was inspired by the dsp I chose and it very closely matched the FEB release badge! oooh. I love it. I simply built my page onto the brown base by trimming out a square and then layered the dsp after punching a border around it. I made coordinating rectangles to place behind my photo. I stamped the sentiment onto matching cardstock and layered it onto a stamped floral border. To finish the detail, I added the heart scallop die border below the sentiment. The flowers are super fun and easy to create and embellished the centres with pearls.   

Finally, I made a tag to match the shadowbox gift. Did I say I {love} this set? The banner tag has the SU antique brad to embellish the word YOUNow head on over to Monika Davis' blog and see what eye candy she created!
Now take a look at what the other Design Divas have created with this release...
