Sweet N Sassy November blog hop

Well, here it is Black Friday in the US. Were you out standing in line trying to get some good deals at 4AM? I have never been able to do it mostly because my hubby has to work and there is noone to watch the girls. Well if you did, I hope you were able to get what you were looking for.

Speaking of Black Friday...Sweet N Sassy has a super duper fabulous sale!!!

Use code BLKFRI08 at the Sweet n Sassy store to get an additional 15% off your order, even on top of sale items! Most stamps are already 15%-25% off and there are free stamps with a $50 order. Korin stocks Copics, Stampavie stamps, papers (including Basic grey), embellishments, nestabilities, as well as her own line and so much more. Plus, if you leave a comment that Janette sent you in the comment section of your order I will also personally send you a card and a little goodie as an extra special thank you.

On to my project for you today. Sweet N Sassy stamps has moved to an every other month release and December is an off month so we are going to focus on some classic sets this month. One of my favorite sets from SNSS is called Christmas cheer and it is over the top cute! Many of us will be giving gift cards for Christmas this year so one of the challenges this week on Splitcoast was to create a pop up gift card holder. Here is one that I made to show you:

I stamped my image and colored it with copics. I used liquid applique sprinkled with glitter on the top of the stocking and a spica glitter pen on the heel and toe. I also a white gel pen to draw stitches in on it so that it would match with the stitching I did with the sewing machine around the image. My layout is from Jen DelMuro's sketch for you to try this week. The only thing is that I wish I would have popped up the puppy's head- next time though. I sanded the edges of the dp.

Here is the inside

If you would like to make one of these you can find the instructions HERE.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Christmas cheer
CS- soft sky, white, real red, basic grey figgy pudding dp
accessories- rect. nesties, sewing machine, liquid applique, glitter, spica glitter pen, copics (R27, R37, R59, BG72, YG99, B00, E21, E31, E33), white gel pen, corner rounder punch, circle cutter, stitched ribbon, white brads

Don't forget you still have a couple more days to take advantage of the super sale going on at SNSS where many sets are 15-25% off and you can free stamps with a purchase of $50 or more. You can do all your shopping one place because they also carry papers, embellishments, nestabilities. So head on over and take a peek. Sandy also has a project to show you today.

Your card is adorable and I saw the tutorial on SCS, your photo of the inside is very helpful. Maybe I'll give this a try. Now I'm off to see what Sandy has to show us on her blog!
BTW, never went shopping on Black Friday, never wanted to. I used to have all my shopping done before Thanksgiving. Most of my projects were done before the church bazaar early in November. This year I have a few paper projects to work on.
