Sweet 'n Sassy - Christmas in July Blog Hop


Hello friends and welcome to our Christmas in July die release and blog hop!  We have two fabulous new dies to share with you that coordinate with two of our already popular Christmas stamp sets from last year---Poinsettia & Vintage Ornaments.
 
Join us today as we share gorgeous samples feature these two sets with their matching dies and enter for a chance to win them!

My first card features this beautiful poinsettia image, which is so easy to cut out now that we have the matching die!  (And yes, I fussy cut that baby last year!!)  I colored my image with Copics and added some text paper and this fun background design on the card base.




  • Die set includes 1 die
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Priced at $10.50
  • Coordinates with Poinsettia stamp set

 My second card showcases the beautiful ornament images included in the Vintage Ornaments stamp set.  I stamped three images, using three different colors of Distress Ink, and then added a bit of Stickles bling!  Then I just used some silver cording to "hang" the ornaments before combining three of the sentiments into one for my final saying!

  • Die set includes 4 dies
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Priced at $16.75
    Coordinates with Vintage Ornaments stamp set  


Now that you've seen the new dies, check out what our DT did with them by clicking the thumbnails below.
Be sure to leave a comment of each of the blogs along your journey because we're giving away each new die set! (2 winners-1 die each) 

The deadline to comment for a chance to win is midnight EST Wednesday, July 31st.  The list of winners will be announced on our website homepage by Tuesday, August 6th.
Thanks so much for joining us!  
Enjoy the hop!
