Sweet N Sassy Stamps Black Friday Sale!

Hi there!  I hope that you have all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Now that the turkey is done and the house is cleaned, it is time for some shopping!  I am all about getting a great deal and Sweet N Sassy Stamps has a Black Friday Sale going on from today through Monday Dec. 1.  So it is a great time to pick up some of those stamps you have been eyeing.

Select stamp sets are on sale 25% off.  Here are a couple of cards that I made with some of the sets on sale:

First up Birthday Bash.  I really love this set for creating birthday cards and it has a coordinating die set too which makes it even more fun!

Here are the products I used on my card:

*please note the dies and Lots a Spots are not in the Black Friday sale*

My second card used Delightful Doilies and is one that I created while I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen and I was not able to share before on my blog.  It is great for creating backgrounds or CAS cards like I have here:

Here are the products I used on my card:

*note Faith scripture set is not on sale*

The last card I would like to share with you uses a digital stamp that I made 2 years ago and forgot to share on the blog.  Digital stamps are 40%!!!

Mod Ornaments

Hi friends!  Janette here today to share a couple Christmas cards that I made.  I used the Mod Ornament stamp set and matching dies to create some festive Christmas cards.  The first card is my sample for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast this past week.

I used coastal cabana and real red inks from Stampin Up as is the patterned paper.

On the second card I embossed the ornament with silver ep and used patterned papers from Kaisercraft

Here are the Sweet N Sassy Stamps products that I used:


Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Sweet N Sassy Stamps November release

Hello, sweet friends!   Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  November 2014 Release Day!  It's beginning to feel more and more like winter here on the east coast and with Thanksgiving right around the corner, Christmas cannot be far behind!  Since November is the birthday month for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and December is the month we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, our release this month is perfect for creating birthday projects, Christmas and winter cards, and all season cards that can be created and given all year long!

I have 2 cards that I am sharing with you today.  The first I chose to combine some of the dies and stamps that have previously been released with our brand new tree die- LOVE!

I used a large post it note and cut a hill to mask off the bottom to create the sky as well as a punched circle for the moon.  I sponged memento inks in summer sky, danube blue, paris dusk, and grape jelly for the night sky.  I then used london fog and the same mask to sponge some hills and then added wink of Stella which is not showing in the photo.

Here are the Sweet N Sassy Stamps products I used on my card:

I do see that the Forest Silhouette dies have now sold out but you could achieve a very similar look to this card using the Forest Silhouettes stamp set

Here is my second card that I would like to share using the new fabulous Birthday die:

Here are the products I used on my card above:
