Spotlight on SNSS

Hello sweet friends!  I love the new stamp sets released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month, but I still love some of the old sets as well.  Today I am featuring the new and the old with two cards I made recently.

This first card uses the new Through the Trees stamp set as well as the Scene Silhouettes: Woodland set and the Thoughtful Words set designed by Nina Brackett.

The scene was stamped twice with the help of my Misti...once on Neenah card stock and once on mixed media paper.  Intense Color Blocks were used to watercolor the mixed media scene and ODBD Pierced Circle Dies were used to cut circles from the top layer.  The sentiment from the Thoughtful Words set was embossed on the top layer as well.  The top layer was popped over the watercolored layer using foam tape.  The animals from the Scene Silhouettes: Woodland set were embossed and cut with my SanNCut.  They were also popped onto the card with foam tape.

My second card uses the old Precious Poppies and Floral Greetings stamp sets.  Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card for a friend who just lost her father and the poppies were perfect.

The poppies were gold embossed on Neenah card stock and watercolored with Intense Color Blocks.  Fossilized Amber Distress Ink was sponged through a TH Burlap Stencil for a little shading behind the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Floral Greetings stamp set and was gold embossed on a black banner.  A bow made with metallic gold thread and black pearls were added to finish the card.
You can find these new and old stamp sets at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.

Thanks so much of stopping by!  Hope you were inspired and until next time...happy stamping!
