Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Landscape Silhouettes

Welcome to the first day of the Sweet 'n Sassy release week!  Super exciting stuff this month...seriously, these stamp sets are amazing!  I almost had a hard time creating a card as I had so many ideas!

Today's card features the brand new Landscape Silhouettes stamp set.  And I think we all know how I feel about silhouette sets...Love 'em!  I pulled a fun Michelle Zindorf idea out of my hat for this card (check out her site for tons of great tutorials) and used a bunch of Distress Ink and my blending tool to achieve this look.  I kept the rest of the card pretty simple as to just focus on that great image!  I also added a sentiment from another new set...but you'll have to wait to hear more about that one! **smile**  The entire set is listed below...

Korin shared that when she was designing the set, she kept adding more and more and more...I think she's covered almost every location on the planet with this one. It even coordinates very well with many of the other Sweet 'n Sassy silhouette sets.

  • Stamp set includes 12 images
  • Set measures approximately 8" 6"
  • The cityscape image measures approximately 4 1/8" x 7/8"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $26  

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

Evocative. Your lovely card immediately transported me to a chilly fall morning. I can hear the early cries of birds awakening and ducks and geese splashing in a lake as they get ready to continue their migration.

Nicely done!!
