I’m a day early with a very special birthday surprise….tomorrow is my friend Korin Sutherland’s birthday! Since tomorrow is the April release for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, we are surprising her with a birthday hop today. (We didn’t want to take the spotlight from the big release.) So please join us as we celebrate Korin’s birthday a little early! You can never have too much celebration, can you?!?!
I used a digital stamp from Sweet N Sassy called, One of a Kind, for the birthday girl’s card. Super sweet little birds! I colored mine with Copic Marker and cut and matted them with die-namics.
Below is the whole birthday party train….prepare yourself for some fantastic cupcakes and ice cream from these talented ladies!!
Just poppin’ in to say thanks for all of the lovely comments on my Sweet ‘n Sassy post from last week. Loved hearing from each of you. I was lucky enough to have some blog candy hidden here as a treat for you! How’s that for fun?!
Congratulations to Shannon White! If you want to check out the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog, Miss Korin has some pretties waiting for you! YAY!
I’ll be back tomorrow for the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop! See you soon!
Happy Monday Morning to you! I had some much needed time at my stamp desk this weekend, and I’ve got something Sweet ‘n Sassy to share this morning! I’m one of 36 fun stops on the Sweet ‘n Sassy 4th Birthday Blog Hop!
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Korin (the beautiful inside and out owner) since almost day one of Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. She’s a lady that is full of great ideas, joy and grace. I adore working with her, and I was very happy when she asked me if I would help them celebrate their birthday because I had several Sweet ‘n Sassy sets that needed some ink!
For my card I used the Christmas Light set and die. I *love* this set. I was so impressed with how easy it was to cut the candle die with all of it’s detail and then stamp perfectly into the die cut piece of cardstock. The stamps are clear, and it worked beautifully the first time!
My candle image is colored with Copic Marker and set with Echo Park paper. The kraft colored doily is from my stash of Maya Road, and the Small Scalloped Border die cut is from MFT.
The thing that I really love about this card is that even with a few dimensionals, it’s relatively flat and has no hard embellishments…easy to mail. I think I’ll be making a few more because the image was really a cinch to color.
As I mentioned up above, we have 36 stops so the hop, and it will take place over three days – feel free to take your time visiting each blog! You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. On Saturday, November 12th Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!
If you have been following along already you should have come from Mary Marsh. If you stopped by to see me and want to start at the beginning, head to the SNSS blog and go from there. Also, don’t forget to comment on as many stops as you can for your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs!
