It's Release Day at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Today's the day for a NEW RELEASE at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!!

The Sweet 'n Sassy design team is holding a blog hop to give you peeks at all of our new Christmas sets.  If you started with my blog, you might head over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog to start at the beginning.

Also...in celebration of this release, there's a Virtual Stamp Day going on in the Sweet 'n Sassy Forum at splitcoaststampers with a variety of challenges every two hours starting at 8 a.m. EST.

I am previewing two very different sets today.  They are both Christmas - but very different looks.  The first is Old-Fashioned Christmas.  There is nothing more classic than a horse-drawn sleigh through a pine forest...

Peace and Joy


Then I went in an entirely different direction - bright, cheerful and sparkly!  One of the new sets is a fabulous border length set of lights and ornaments and stockings.  I used small sections of them on this card.

Holiday Cheer

DEFINITELY check out the entire blog hop -don't miss a single stop along the way because Sweet 'n Sassy will be drawing on lucky commenter from a random design team blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

Next on the hop is Bridget Finlay.
Here's the list of all the stops along the hop today:

  19. Your first card is my favorite of the whole hop so far. I just adore the bold green and white chevron background with that fun horse drawn sleight image. Makes me smile. And I also adore the glitter ornaments on your second card. How fun!

  24. Two fab cards Kim. Your first has understated elegance and the second is so bright and cheerful ready to warm any cold dark winter night. Speaking of dark it's 9am here and it's so dull and dark outside I've still got the lights on. Gone are our sunny bright days! x
