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...
