Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April New Release Celebration!  All of the Design Divas are excited to kick things off today with a fun blog hop full of inspiration using the sets that will be available for purchase in the store tonight.  Ready to get started? You should have hopped from Jessica Fick's blog, isn't she amazing?

paper: EP, SU
Inks: Memento, Copics, Versafine
Accessories: SNS star dies, Spellbinder die, Brads, stickles, stitching

My First card (up there ^) uses the Bee Happy Rhubarb, it comes complete with three images and five sentiments. I stitched all my pieces together using my sewing machine and laid out my design to my liking. I added some twine and a mini button to finish off Sweet Rhubarb.

The second card features Special Boy Cocoa. He comes in a set with another image plus four sentiments. I wanted to create a fun "boy" card and realized I have a tough time creating those types of cards. I pulled out my star dies from SNSS and began layering them. I placed one on the opposite corner to balance my design. I stickled the stars randomely.

Your next stop is DJ Rants, you will love her work!

Here's the full list of Design Divas (and our special April Guest) sharing their creativity with you today:
