My card features the Ariana Blooms Collection. The blooms are stamped using versafine black ink and sponged quickly using Ranger inks. They are cut to perfection with the matching die! I love the new style of the cut line along the lined image. The blooms are layered onto the Ariana Lace die. The paper is from this collection and used the ticket tag for my sentiment. I embellished with seam binding ribbon. I love the ease of using the whole collection in one single creation. Thank you Heartfelt! 

See you all next Month for another Bloghop - Enjoy your Thanksgiving! Remember our Military!

SNSS Blessing Wreath ~

Good morning Sweet'nSassy friends and fans! Today, I am sharing a very simple card combining different dies and actually coloured a wreath! That is a huge plus for me. My life has been overrun with life.

My card features the recently released Hillside Edges Die (can we say, oh so cute!!!) combined with Seasonal Wreaths and matching dies. While I didn't think these two went together, I talked myself into thinking that they looked like the Dickens village that people place on mantels or tree skirts. So, why not? lol.

SNSS is having a Black Friday Sale!!!! Who doesn't love a great sale? Be sure to check out the online store first thing Friday!
Materials Used:
Stamps: Seasonal Wreaths
Inks: Tombow markers, Versafine ink, QQ powder puff inks
Paper: SU
Accessories: SNSS Dies, SU punch, dimensional tape

SNSS November Release Day Bloghop~

Welcome to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  November 2014 Release Day!
My card uses the bare tree die and the Scripture & Sentiment companions. The "leaves" beneath the tree are glitter and prills I sprinkled over some dries clear glue. The sentiment is stamped in black versafine ink. To finish off the card, I scored 1/4 inch from the edges. Finally, I added some pearls on the upper corner. (I apologize for the bad lighting)
This little purse is not my idea but one I cased from Pinterest by Inking Idaho I am in the midst of planning a fundraiser crop and this idea came in handy after a different (failed effort) for some favours. I added the Sweet word and heart from Baked for You set. Isn't is sweet? 
Finally, a card I shared earlier this week. I used the new Birthday Word die and the Companion Words set. I love the different fonts and uses you can get out of this set.
