Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Born This Day

 Welcome to day 4 of our September feature Blog Hops!  


Today we're featuring Korin's precious new Born This Day stamp set and coordinating dies.

How about this idea of using cork on a card?  LOVE it!  (Wish I'd thought of it but it was inspired by a few projects I came across in a magazine...)  I created the cork frame by layering two Spellbinders dies (one inside the other) before cutting them out.  I then colored, with Copics, my image, cut it out and attached it to the frame.  And that sentiment fit perfectly inside the frame...bonus!


  • Stamp set includes 2 images and 13 sentiments and scripture verses
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The manger image measures approximately 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set - $15
  • Die set - $8.25
  • Bundle ($23.25 value) - $21
  Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
