This month's new release is what I love about Sweet 'n Sassy...there is a mix of classic, Christian and fun. I got a little of both in my package to preview!!
The first stamp set is a classic Christian set. Although you don't see the stamp on the outside of my card - the sentiment that inspired this card is the verse from the hymn "It Is Well"...When peace like a river attendeth my way..."
The bridge is silver embossed with a few tiny sparkles for the feeling of the sun shining on the water. Such a classic and so very peaceful image!
Then for my second card, I stretched my comfort zone...can you hear me taking a big leap??? I already had my stash of embossing powders out and when I am embossing I try to do a number of cards because no matter how hard that I try I MAKE A MESS!! I have to strip everything off my desk and scrub in every nook and cranny - so I might as well make it worth the time.
I also just got a very unique Washi tape - it's almost neon.
I put it all together for this...
Doesn't that image work perfectly with all the gold and neon??? It's such a sweet and simple image, it can be used in so many ways. Sweet 'n Sassy is celebrating their release all day long with challenges in the Sweet 'n Sassy forum on Splitcoaststampers. I'm hosting a color challenge at noon EST and for my sample, I use this same stamp in a very traditional way!!!
My card recipes are at the very bottom of this post.
The next person on the hop is Cathy McCauley.
