October Release Bloghop & VSD ~

Good morning everyone! It is time to hop with The SNSS DT!! We have been busy preparing for today's fabulous blog hop and virtual stamp day and hope you will join us in celebrating our newest stamp sets! This month Sweetn'Sassy is focusing on Christmas! You should have come from the awesome Cathy McCauley and if you haven't yet...Put on some Christmas music, grab a favourite hot drink and let's continue...
Inks: versafine black, stampin up
paper: SU, 
accessories: spellbinders, CB folder, SU ribbon, glitter, punch
My first card is fairly simple, stamped onto white cs and inked the edges while still in the die. I layered it onto an embossed panel and tied my ribbon on top and fishtail cut the ribbon on the bottom. The sentiment is oval punched and inked on the edges. 
inks: pencils,versafine, 
papers: K&Co, SU
Accessories: brads, burlap, gamsol, Ranger EF
This card is my favourite! love the image and the background on it. Once I coloured the image and hand cut it out, I placed all my embellishments where I wanted them and it was complete! 
 
Next hop is Kim Singdahlsen, 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!!
