It's Here! It's Blog Hop Day!!


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!
I love this hop because I am surrounded by incredibly talented cardmakers and I love seeing what they have done (and I have the same stamps so I can CASE them all!!)
You probably came from Korin's blog but if you started with me, you should head back to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog to start from the beginning.
I have two ENTIRELY different sets to show you today.  The first is charming little Cocoa popping out of an Easter egg...



This set is called Egg-Cited Cocoa.  I used Echo Park Dots & Stripes, also available in the store.  And the heart die is also from Sweet 'n Sassy - the Hearts and Stars Scallop Border.  (The layout is from a sketch found at Cardabilities.)
Then on an entirely different note...



It's the Rose Collage set and it is gorgeous.  There are 16 different sentiment to go inside the banner so it is completely flexible.  The two butterflies are on the main collage stamp - but there are also two separate stamps so it is easy to stamp and cut out.  (The colors are from colourQ.)
Next...for your hopping pleasure...is Giovana.  Have fun!


Be sure to make plans to join us for our new release party tonight; the fun takes place over in our member company forums on Splitcoaststampers.  We'll have great fellowship with crafty friends, challenges, and a prize drawing!  The excitement starts at 8:00 PM EST.
Now, take a look at what the other Design Divas have created to show off this amazing batch of February stamps:


Don't forget, the entire February release is available in the store right now; you can order the stamps individually or at a discounted bundle price!  Head over to get yours today!


The challenges that I used are:
