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:

Beautiful cards, Janette! I love the silhouette tree with the deer and your super fun birthday card!

Bridget said...

We were on the same page, Janette, thinking that the deer silhouette would work well with the bare tree - your card is gorgeous! And I love the soft purple and pink birthday creation with such a subtle touch of shimmery sparkle!

Stephanie said...

Your first card is so elegant and striking. I really like all the sponging and hills. The 2nd card looks so girly and sweet. I love it!!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Pretty cards Janette. Love the snowy hills and the shiny tree on the first one... the circles look great on the birthday card.

Julie S. said...

I love that beautiful winter scene on the first card. It really is peaceful looking. I also like the pink and purple together on your birthday card. Such a fun color combo.

Gorgeous scene you created and sweet birthday card.
