Sweet n Sassy stamps Birthday blog hop



Thanks for hopping along with the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop today! I am the first blog on the hop today.

We have over 30 amazingly talented ladies participating in today's hop plus a prize at every stop so you really don't want to miss a single blog!



I started out by stamping my 2 snowflake images onto four 4" square pieces of white cardstock. I then adhered them to my 4 inch coasters and trimmed and sanded the edges. I inked the edges of all the sides as well and added stickles as an accent. One of the nice things about making your own pattered paper is that you can customize it with any colors you want. I made this box to coordinate with the card on my last post. There is a wonderful step by step tutorial of how to assemble the box on Splitcoast so I will just give you the box link if you would like to know how to make your own. This was the first time that I have made one! I made it for my friend who runs our bible study group and truthfully I will replace the bath goodies with some chocolate. I just did not get to the store in time to do it.





This was also my first time making a tag and I am not completely happy with it. I need to improve a bit and I would not be surprised later to replace this one lol. I stamped my snowflakes all over the tag (which is hard to see in the pic) then stamped the sentiment (which is included in my set) over the top and finished it off with some punched snowflakes and ribbon.



Supplies:
stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Snowflake Silhouettes
paper- Stampin Up whisper white, blue bayou, soft sky
accessories- 4 inch coasters, sissix tag die, stickles, MS snowflake punch, grosgrain ribbon, stitched ribbon, crop a dile, rhinestones


So, what is my prize? It is my brand new Snowflakes Silhouettes set! To win this clear stamp set all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post by Thursday November 11th at 9PM EST, I will draw the winner by random.org and announce the winner on Friday.

Your next stop on the hop is Lorie and she has an adorable Cocoa card to show you! However, if you find yourself getting lost somewhere in the middle I am listing the blogs below for you or you can hop back to the Sweet N Sassy blog as well.
