Sweet N Sassy stamps blog hop

Hi there! What do you know I finally have a mid-week post LOL? It is time to say farewell to some wonderfully talented ladies that have served for the last 6 months on the SNSS DT. We also say welcome to some terrific new ladies who will be serving for the next 6 months. So there are lots of inspiring projects for you to see on the blog hop. If you have not already been hopping then you will definitely want to go back to the Sweet N Sassy blog and start there so you don't miss anything. I also have the blog hop schedule on my sidebar.

I have 2 CAS cards to share with you today which is rather unusual for me. Once in awhile I like to change it up. I also changed my hair this week and had it highlighted so I guess I am quite the rebel LOL.





I used the newly released beautiful borders set for my cards. There are 5 stamps in the set and they make great focal points, borders, or custom dp. I simply inked up half the stamp and stamped my image. I then die cut it using my long rectangle nesties and drew a frame around them while still in the die with my marker. I accented the middle of the flowers with some rhinestones and simply tied a ribbon at the top and voila! Since I was making a CAS card I wanted to use some "special" paper so I chose white sparkle from Paper Temptress to add a little something without adding layers. Oh and the sparkle paper is on sale 25% off for the month of July too!!

Supplies:
stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Beautiful Borders and I'd Pick you for the sentiments
CS- Paper Temptress blanc sparkle, noir sparkle, tango tangerine, summer sun, brilliant blue
accessories- rhinestones, striped grosgrain, organdy ribbon, long rectangle nesties


I also want to mention the Christmas in July celebration that starts today. Korin has some new exclusive digi images just for the celebration and of course there is a SALE and who doesn't love a sale??? You can get all the info about it HERE.

Your next stop on the blog hop is one of our new DT members- Lisa and you are sure to love what she has to share with you.

Thanks for stopping by today!
