Sweet ‘n Sassy’s February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February New Release Blog Hop!  This month's release is so exciting  - it was even released a week early as a surprise! Get your warm beverage and tasty snack, and get ready for some amazing inspiration from the Design Divas! Hopefully you just came from Cathy McCauley’s blog.


First I have Special Friends to show you. I paper pieced her dress and the kite. Completely cut her out. Why someone would fly a kite at night is beyond me but this little girl is! I made the stars using SNSS’s Star die set that came out last month.

But my favorite set of the release has to be Butterfly Flourish. I embossed the butterfly flourish in clear and sponged on distress ink. Masked entire area and stamped the scripture from New Creature in distress ink and then went back over it and applied more ink.  Sentiment is also from New Creature.

Be sure to make plans to join us for our new release party tonight over in our member company forums on Splitcoaststampers.  We'll have great fellowship with crafty friends, challenges, and a prize drawing!  The excitement starts at 8:00 PM EST.

Now head on over to Wendy Jordan, our February guest designer, to see what she has in store for you. And if you get lost along the way, here are the links to all the other Design Divas.
