Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day

First, thank you all so much for your kind words and congratuations offered yesterday!  I'm so excited about this new adventure and can't wait until all of the changes (and NEW product are in place!!)  Be sure to check back here on August 15th for more news!!

And now on to my favorite time of the month...Release Day with Sweet 'n Sassy!!  Today I'm sharing two Fall-inspired cards (but please, don't event suggest that summer may be anywhere close to coming to and end!!)

My first card features the Leaf Silhouettes set...ohhhh leaves and silhouettes, all in one set!  It makes my heart go pitter patter!  I paired this darling set with papers from Imaginisce and ribbon from American Crafts.  I used three colors of Distress Inks (Aged Mahogoney, More Mustard, Rusty Hinge) and for the leaves and matched the leaf colors to those in my paper.
My second card features a stunning image from the new Tree Background set.  I kept this card fairly simple, choosing to focus on the tree image.  I used a circle mask to create the moon and again used Distress Inks and a blending tool to add the sunset.  The sentiment on my card is from the True Friend set.
So...what's in store for today's blog hop?
  1. Comment on each blog on the hop and be entered into a drawing for a GRAND PRIZE of two stamp sets, of your choice, from today's release!
  2. Virtual Stamp Day, with challenges, on Splitcoast
  3. A free stamp set when you place a $50 order
But that's not all...you also get to see all the crafting goodness on the other DT blogs, check it out here!  Enjoy!!

Eeks, love your cards Kim! The Leaf Silhouettes is fab with the dp you used (I mean how perfect!!) and your Tree Background ROCKS. How funny that we did the same technique. I {almost} flipped my try to go vertical instead of horizontal, lol!

So, so, so pretty! Love the colors on both cards. The lace and stitching is just the perfect addition on the first one... the sponging is fab on the second!

First off, congrats on purchasing eP! Can't wait to see what you have in mind. Subscribing here so I don't miss a beat.

Okay, the card colors are great and I love the silhouettes. Not wishing summer away by any means, but cooler temps and a bit of water would be a blessing.
Creative Blessings!
