June 2020 New Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Welcome to our June Release Blog Hop!

June is here with a new lineup of stamps and we're so excited to share the projects we've been working on with you! Read on for a bit of inspiration and a little walk through of our new release, then hop along to the blogs linked below for all sorts of papercrafting inspiration.

Plus, there's a GIVEAWAY! Leave a little shout out in the comment section on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced here on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, June 24.

Here's the official hop list. If a link misbehaves along the way,
hop on back here to pick  up where you left off.

My first card for today uses the stunning Dazzling Dahlia set. I just love this big flower! I stamped it off the side of a card base, then colored with alcohol markers.  I wanted it to be super light, so went with subtle grays for my marker choice.  

Once that was done, I masked off the flower and blended Speckled Egg distress oxide ink all over the card front.  I then went back in and stamped some of the grunge stamps from the Gear Up set in Speckled Egg for some fun texture.  The sentiment is the finishing touch on this one layer card.

For my next card, I paired the God Bless America set with Peace Be Still for a funloving card.

I masked off the colors, stamping in red, then blue for the sentiment.  The sailboat and captains wheel are colored with Copic markers and then hand trimmed.  I used some patriotic paper from my stash as the backdrop and finished off with a sweet sentiment from the Sentimental Wordfetti set.

Okay, the next stop on the hop is my blog, Poetic Artistry

Here's a little look-see at the sets included in the June release...

Next up is the gorgeous Dazzling Dahlia set by Korin. This dahlia measures in at a huge 4 3/4" x 4 1/2", making it perfect for both backgrounds and fantastic focal pieces. It's a must have in your flower stamp collection.

The Peace Be Still set from Jennifer Nilsson calms the storm in us, bringing us peaceful thoughts of smooth sailing. 

Korin hand lettered this amazing set of Americana sentiments, as our hearts cry out God Bless America!

The fabulous Gear Up set is a great background builder. With gears, hardware, and a bit of grunge, this set has us geared up for fun!

Rebecca Rios brings us another fabulous Creative Worship set this month. With rainbows and phrases themed around God's great provision for us, Way Maker is simply a fantastic set.

Our final set this month is the fabulously versatile Bold & Outline Caps Alpha. This set includes the entire alphabet, as well as punctuation in both an outline and a bold version. Use them alone, mix and match, or layer them for so many options!
