November Sweet Perks Club & Birthday BUNDLE Blitz!


Happy Friday to you, stamping friends!

It's time again for another batch of goodies for our Sweet Perks Club!  Our November stamp & die bundles are NOW AVAILABLE to preorder!  We are SURE you are really going to LOVE what we're offering this month! :)

BUT BEFORE WE GET TO THAT, we want to share some exciting news! 

In November Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating it's 7th birthday!!!  WOW!!  We are so thrilled the Lord has chosen to bless us for so long and look forward to what He will do in the future.  Please pray for us!  We want to always seek His will and to bless others for His glory!

In celebration of our birthday we are having a

We have paired up many of our coordinating stamps and dies into bundles and are offering them at a 10% discount while supplies last through November 9th (our official birthday).  You don't have to be a Sweet Perks Club member to take advantage of the bundle blitz.  This is for EVERYONE!  HOWEVER, if you ARE a November club member (meaning you order one of our November SPC bundles), you may use your club member discount to take an additional 10% off our Bundle Blitz bundles!!

Before you head to our site to order your bundles, please read ALL of the info below.  There are some important updates you won't want to miss!!

IMPORTANT CLUB INFO: 
Our club bundles will ship 3-4 weeks from the initial release date to ship so please keep this in mind when you are ordering.  The earlier you order the sooner your order will ship.  That means our November club bundles will begin shipping approximately 3-4 weeks from today (October 31st).  This time frame is necessary to ensure we have enough product on hand to fill orders and enough time to fill those orders.

If you add other items to your club bundle order, those items will also be delayed so it is best to keep your CLUB orders separate from your regular product orders.  We cannot partial ship orders.

Please note:  
A couple of this month's stamp & die bundles include stamp sets that were previously released to our line (meaning they are NOT new).  Please make sure you check your stash before ordering so you do not end up with duplicate stamps.  Thank you! 



For those of you NEW to SPC, this is how it works...

On the last Friday of the month we will share the next month's SPC bundle(s) (yes, there may be more than one to choose from!). The bundle(s) will consist of one stamp set and one coordinating die set and they will be available FOR PREORDER at a 20% discount with FREE SHIPPING (US customers only, $3 off shipping for international customers) for only 2 weeks!  The new products in the bundle(s) will be made available later in the month for purchase on our website for the FULL retail price.  

While saving 20% is a pretty sweet deal, that isn't all!  After all, it's called the Sweet PERKS club!!  When you purchase one (or more) of our SPC bundles you will ALSO receive 10% off ANY additional purchases you make that month!! SWEET! 

To "JOIN" our club, all you have to do is order one of the bundles and you are in! There is NO COMMITMENT. YOU get to pick and choose when to participate.  When you do, you get that month's perks, when you don't, you don't.   Pretty simple, huh?

Of course, the savings are GREAT, but we're also throwing in some freebies to reward your continued club participation. 

Check out these SWEET PERKS!
  • When you purchase 2 or more SPC bundles in one month you will receive a small surprise gift in that month's SPC shipment.  Who doesn't love fun little surprises? :) SWEET!
  • Once your total of SPC bundle purchases reaches 6 (within a 6 month time frame) you will receive a FREE 4x6 stamp set of your choice.  WHAT?  Yes!  YOU get to pick your FREE gift for fulfilling a typical 6 month club term.  EVEN SWEETER!
  • Once your total of SPC bundle purchases reaches 12 (within a 12 month time frame) you will receive a FREE SPC BUNDLE of your choice valued between $25 and $30!  THE SWEETEST!

Here's another beauty by Cathy McCauley.  Isn't that little chickadee adorable?  And Cathy's coloring, as always, is just beautiful.  You can't see it in the photo but there is a spring under the image so the bird actually wobbles. :)  FUN!!

Comforting Pines was a set we released a few years ago for a short time, but it's BACK now with matching dies which makes it EVEN MORE FABULOUS! Think of all the pretty winter scenes you could make with this set not to mention Christmas cards like the one I made above. :)

Joy Times Four

Hello friends…Cathy here with a sweet card for you!  I just love this adorable snowman from the Welcome Jesus stamp set which was one of the Sweet Perks Club bundles offered earlier this month.



The snowman was stamped four times and cut with the matching Welcome Jesus Die.  After coloring them with Copic Markers, they were trimmed to fit the four squares of DP and mounted on black card stock.  The Solar Crest card front was embossed with swiss dots and the snowmen were added along with the sentiment which was stamped on a hand cut banner.   Some Baker's Twine and a little heart covered with Wink of Stella glitter and Glossy Accents finish the card.  The Welcome Jesus stamp set and Welcome Jesus Die are now available individually at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.



I know just who will be receiving this cute Christmas card this year!   Speaking of Christmas...there is still time to participate in the Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Challenge.  All you need to do to be eligible to win a PRIZE is to make a Christmas card and upload it to the gallery using the Linky Code which can be found in THIS POST along with the challenge details.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to find out the winner of the Christmas challenge AND….
see the new Sweet Perks Club bundles being revealed for the month of November!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Fall day!

Harvest Blessings!

Hello friends!  Giovana here today with a very Fall/Autumn card. Few weeks ago I went to my neighbor's orchard and got a lot of apples, they used to distribute apples around the state and other states too, now you get an idea how big their orchard is, I love to go there, the smell of apples is something I love plus my child loves to do the job too because is fun :) Now, the are retired but the trees still produce huge and delicious apples, he always invite the neighbors and churches to go and pick apples. They are a great elderly couple, with a big heart and a cat who loves to stare at you, hehehe.

Anyway, I think this image is perfect to recreate the occasion. I used Beary Bountiful Autumn Set , colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, the sentiment was stamped on one of the bigger clouds from Clouds and Raindrops Die Set.
The apples were covered with Crystal Lacquer and then added clear glitter.


Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

Be Strong. Be Brave


Hello, it's Bridget here today - I'm still playing along with the Hope You
Can Cling To Challenges for the month of September at
Splitcoaststampers, so I thought I'd share another
one made with two beautiful SNSS sets.  ( HYCCT is a drive to supply
handmade cards for the use of cancer patients at a treatment center in Texas.) 
I love the swirly elegance of the Leafy Flourish Background stamp
which I used to emboss with pearlized silver for the main panel.
Then using Stampin Up Blusing Bride and Rose Romance ink with the
 resist technique, I sponged over the embossing. 
I used the same inks to sponge an oval cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities 
Petite Ovals before stamping the sentiment using the set God is Bigger. 
This set has so many possibilities with a number of mix and match
sentiments that are so encouraging.  Stampin Up seam binding and a
pearl brad are the finishing touches.  It's hard to see in the photo but
the card base is made with shimmery gunmetal gray cardstock.
Whatever challenges you're facing today....Be brave.  Be strong. 
You will beat this.  With the help of the
all powerful God who loves  you beyond measure.
Thanks for stopping by today!

It's Your Day...........

Good Morning Friends!!  How are you?  Jacquie here, to share with you!

I have found that I am all about the simple creations these days.  I just LOVE the way they look!  So, I have a lot of pre-made card bases and even a lot of FIRST layers ready to go.  That being said, this card is right up my alley.  Hope you like it, as much as I do!





I used my green polka dotted base and layered a piece of GP white cardstock on top of it.  Then I used the SNSS GRUNGE ELEMENTS clear stamp set, to make my paint swatches.  I stamped my sentiment, from the SNSS BIRTHDAY WORD ART clear stamp set, and used my SNSS STAR DIE SET to cut out some matching stars.  I finished my project off with a clear Wink of Stella brush marker on the top star, Orchid twine,  and some pearls/rhinestones.  Easy Peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL day!

Christmas Silhouettes...


Hello! It's Monika here today, bringing you a nontraditional holiday card. 

Have you had a chance to hop along with us during our Special DT Christmas Hop yesterday? If you have not, make sure you check out all the wonderful samples today! 

I made couple of cards using one of my favorite sets, Christmas Silhouettes clear stamp set (with the coordinating Christmas Silhouettes die set) yesterday, and today I have another one for you:


The nontraditional Black & White colors with a touch of Silver give a great 'edge' to my card. I love it!

 I stamped the Music Background with VersaMark, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It is the perfect backdrop to my Holly. 


I also added white water color splatters to the background, along with silver star sequins... and of course, I didn't want to leave out the thread!

I hope I have inspired you to make a holiday card today... create something and link up your creation to our Blog Hop.



Thanks for stopping by,

Monika
