Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day!

I'm so excited about this month's Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release, it's amazing!!! Eight new clear stamp sets and three new sets of dies will be available in the store tonight. Make sure you've got a warm, tasty beverage and some donuts ready....you won't want to miss a bit of the inspiration we have for you today!

To be honest, I had the hardest time deciding which project to share because I LOVE each and every set that we're annoucing today!! (EDITED: I decided to add the second card, using the You & Me set!!) But I had to go with the card above because I just adore silhouette images and this new set, called Together Silhouettes, is no exception! I paired the images with this beautiful paper from We R Memory Keepers and ribbon from American Crafts. I also added two stick pins adored with glass beads...a perfect accent for this vintage looking paper. For my second card I stamped the images and cut them out so that I could pop them up on the mini tag. And seriously, are these not the cutest images and sentiments!! Love them! (I even added some glossy accents to the top of the donut so it looks just like glaze!) The fun paper is from October Afternoon and the seam binding is from The Cat's Pajamas. Enjoy!! And now take a look at the rest of the Design Divas (and our very special January guest)...they've all whipped up some gorgeousness today!

Wow, your first card is so elegant with the gorgeous bow and stickpins! And it looks like you've used real chocolate icing on your donut - what a "sweet", cute card!

Both cards are wonderful, Kim! Love the rounded corners on both of them...I often forget how rounded corners add interest to a card. The silhouette card is so elegant...love the stick pins and the vintage look! The glaze on the donut looks good enough to eat!
