2014 Year in Review - Day 8: Borders and Backgrounds

Hello sweet friends and welcome back to Day 8 of  
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps 2014 Year in Review!

Today's feature is:
The images in this amazing stamp set can be used alone to create a simple border, can be mitered to create a frame, or several of the images can be used together to create beautiful backgrounds.

This gorgeous vintage card was created by Mary using the Borders & Backgrounds Stamp set:

Mary used the one of the borders from the Borders & Backgrounds stamp set to frame the pretty postal papers for a special Christmas announcement! 

Here are more samples using the Borders & Backgrounds stamp set created in 2014 by the SNSS Design Team:

Lee Ann stamped a border from Borders & Backgrounds in three different colors on an angle making an interesting focal point for her card.  The split sentiment she used is from the Pick Me Up stamp set.  Love the addition of the wood veneer heart!

Diane used two different borders from the Borders & Backgrounds stamp set in two different coral tones to create this gorgeous background for her card.  The same coral colors were used on the flower from the Bloom & Grow stamp set.  The sentiment is from Flower Blocks 3.

Jessica layered a border from Borders & Backgrounds with several Scallop Border die cuts to create a fringe for her cute thank you card.  She also used the Pick Me Up stamp set that was featured yesterday and the coordinating Pick Me Up Dies for the mug and the sentiment on her card.

Monika used the same border stamped repeatedly in different colors to create this gorgeous background for her Majestic Butterfly stamped on vellum. The sentiment is from the popular God is Bigger stamp set.

Here's another gorgeous card created by Lee Ann.  I love how she curved one of the border stamps from Borders & Backgrounds on her acrylic block to add an embossed curved border around the beautiful and creative!  The sentiment is from the New Beginnings stamp set and the butterfly stamped on vellum is from the Majestic Butterflies stamp set.

Borders & Backgrounds is available now at the 
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!

We'll be back on Monday with more 2014 features, but meanwhile, be sure to stop back over the weekend to check out what several of the Design Divas have been creating with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  I know you will be inspired by their creations!

Thanks so much for visiting today!
