A Big Day: Sweet 'n Sassy's June Release

It's the big day for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - the June release!

If you have come here from Cathy's blog, I am sure you are loving the blog hop.  If you started with me, you might want to head back to the beginning - the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog to join in the fun.  Plus...if you leave comments, one random design team blog will be chosen, then one lucky comment-er on that blog for big prizes!!

It's another fantastic month with such a variety of stamps.  I wanted to stay with the variety that Sweet 'n Sassy always offers and give you a variety of cards.

This first card uses the new set Make a Wish (available tonight after the big release party!).  I have been taking classes - online and in my local scrapbook store - on Tim Holtz type techniques and I knew that some of these techniques would work beautifully with this set...

Then for my second set, I went for a very different look.  The stamps are so detailed and beautiful that they work well with very little embellishment.  I used the new set Vintage Baby and made a baby girl and a baby boy card...

I'd say you are doing an outstanding job learning the Tim Holtz techniques, Kim! Your first card with the emboss resist is gorgeous! Love the freshness of the clean and simple baby cards..what a great idea to add a touch of bling!

LeAnne said...

Just gorgeous!!! You are a very talented stamper to be able to switch styles at the drop of a baby bootie! Is the tabbed piece that you used on the first card just something you cut out freehand? Such a cool idea!
