February Release Hop Winner + Inspiration

Hi Sweet 'n Sassy friends! It's Julee popping in with a little inky inspiration and some happy news for one of you blog hoppers!

As always, we had so much fun sharing the current release with you on our February Blog Hop. We so hope you enjoyed it, too, and gleaned a little inspiration for using this month's stamps! While we think you're ALL winners, we did randomly select ONE lucky reader from among all the comments on the hop to receive a $25 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy shop. This month's winner was randomly selected from Julee's post comments (that's me).

And the winner is...

Congratulations MargeE!
Please send an email to to claim your prize.

Now onto a little inspiration from me, mixing a couple of this month's releases with a couple of previous releases. I love how well the line of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps mix and match!

I absolutely love the new Alleluia Lilies stamp set. The flowers are just so beautiful. So this card started with the flower and extra leaf. I stamped them on watercolor paper and then watercolored with distress inks and fussy cut.

I then stamped the wood sign from Rustic Easter and sponged with distress inks, then embossed the Blessings sentiment in white over it.  This is fussy cut and layered over the bottom of the flower.

For the circle background I pulled out the Rise & Shine Stencil and stenciled with distress inks one way, then flipped the stencil around to fill a complete circle.  The background is done with the Wood Backgrounds set (one of my favorites), and I stamped it in brown on kraft paper, then ink blended to get a fun dark wood effect like the word sign.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
