It's Christmas in July at Sweet 'n Sassy!


Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating Christmas in July!  Each design team member got to pick Christmas sets to showcase.  I love using multiple sets because it gives me a chance to show you the reason that I love Sweet 'n Sassy - a great mix of styles!!

One the one hand, they have a fantastic collection of Christian stamps.  This set is called Season of Love - it is so elegant and so meaningful...

But on the other hand, I can pull out a cute little Cocoa stamp and have a sweet little card.  This set is called Santa's Helper Cocoa.  (FYI, I am using the digital image, so the actual stamp size could be different.) The sentiment comes from Cozy Friends.  I liked the "warm" part of the sentiment given Cocoa is all curled up in the fuzzy hat!

The Season of Love card uses this sketch from technostamper.  The blue is Midnight Muse from Stampin' Up.  The background paper is a nice paper pad from Hobby Lobby called Blanc Boutique.  My favorite part of this card is the embossing powder - it's chunky and sparkly - it's Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel.





The Cocoa Mouse card uses this sketch from Merry Monday.  The background paper is Basic Grey Fruitcake.  A few miscellaneous buttons for interest and a little Picket Fence Distress Stickles on the white parts of the hat.






Lots of great things are happening at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps during these pre-holiday festivities!  ALL Christmas clear stamps are 20% off through Wednesday, July 25.  Three new holiday sets are in stock early, for a fun pre-release, and they you can get them before they are released in September and October... if you buy them now, you can take advantage of the sale price!
