SNSS August Die Release Bloghop and Challenge~

Welcome to the August 2014 Release!  Fabulous new dies are available in the store coordinating with some beautiful and cute stamps!
As always Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some wonderful prizes and a Release Day Challenge for you! One random commenter from one of the DT blogs will be selected to win a $10 Gift Code to be used at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  You have until Thursday, August 21st at midnight EST to leave your comments.  The winner will be posted on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog on Friday, August 22nd!

Now, for the Release! Beauty By the Sea Dies coordinate with the Beauty By the Sea stamp set:
-          Die set includes 6 dies
-          Designed by Korin Sutherland
-          Die set price is $15.25

 My re-purposed drink carrier is created using designer paper and beautiful shells from the beauty by the sea stamp & matching dies, flourish sea shells stamp & matching dies. For some seaside flair, I added a piece of burlap and adhered the different shells coloured with pencils and gamsol. Can you smell the ocean? 

Happy Ocean Friends Dies which coordinate with the Happy Ocean Friends stamp set:
-          Die set includes 7 dies
-          Designed by Korin Sutherland
-          Die set price is $16.75
For my card, I created some waves using designer papers and sponged them with ink. I placed the adorable happy sea turtles from Happy Ocean friends riding the waves with an equally fun message. The sentiment is curved on the designer paper. 

And Finally, Flourish Seashells which coordinate with the Flourish Seashells stamp set:
-          Die set includes 5 dies
-          Designed by Korin Sutherland
-          Die set price is $11.75
A closeup view of my re-purposed box and tag. It uses the flourish seashells and beauty by the sea. I'm in love.
