Birthday Hop

SantaChristmasajhcopy 
racinggrandma61 is my blog hop winner!!! Congrats! Your digi has been sent to you.

Thanks for hopping along with the
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop today!  Hopefully you just came from Claudia but if not, you can hop back to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and start from the beginning.  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!

Korin has this to say about Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps: “It's hard to believe that 3 years ago today Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "opened for business" with just 4 clear stamp sets being sold on a simple blog.  Since then SNSS has grown to over 100 clear stamp sets and hundreds of digital stamps!  God has been so good to us! 

Our images, sentiments and scripture stamps are sweet 'n sassy and everything in between.  We're sure you'll find something you love.  We hope you enjoy hopping along to see all the fun things we've created for your viewing pleasure.  May you be inspired to create something truly amazing......something from your heart!”

For today’s card I used Primitive Christmas. Did a little paper piecing with Santa using The Paper Studio Mirabelle. Distressed edges with distress ink and colored snowflakes with copic.  Layout is from this week’s CPS sketch.

I want to show you a second card using the same set. I had a stamp camp over the weekend where they did Christmas cards. I tried to keep it very clean and simple so this is one of the cards they could have done.

Colored right on the Kraft paper with prismacolor pencils. Didn’t do any blending of any sorts. Went back over the buttons, eyes, mouth with a black pen. Some even used the Santa instead. All turned out really cute.

Deb said...

Hello, sweet friend! Love both of these adorable cards! The primitive Santa is darling but I think I'm partial to the CAS snowman, maybe because we never have snowmen in Florida! ;) Big {{hugs}}
