My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Sweet 'n Sassy Sept. Release Blog Hop


Good Morning and Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps September Mini Release Blog Hop. Boy, that was a mouth full. Say that 10 times real fast!


If you've come her from Lorie's blog, you're on the right path. If not, you may want to start at the beginning with Belinda's Blog so you don't miss out on any of the wonderful Eye Candy. There is a complete list in the right column of this blog.

Two months ago, you may have gotten a sneak peak of the new stamps when they were a FREE give-a-way as digi's for the Christmas in July Specials. So many of you have requested them to be made into stamps and your requests were heard and answered.

Today's new release is "You Light Up My Life", and "Waddle I Do". Haven't started making your Christmas Cards yet? Well, you can pick up both of these stamp sets for less then $15.00 and that includes shipping. Yes, Sweet 'n Sassy has not only lowered the cost of their stamp sets, but you can now have them shipped 1st class and save lots of money. These stamps are going to be such a big seller that when you get through each one of the Design Team's blogs, you may want to hop right on over to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and pick up your stamp sets before they sell out.

My card was made using the NEW Jingle Creative Basics Paper Pack from Close to my Heart.
The stamp set is "You Light Up My Life" from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

The image was colored in with Copic Markers. The snowman and snow flakes are all glittered. For the snow under him, I used white Liquid Applique, heated it to puff it and added glitter. Unfortunately, the glitter doesn't show up very well in the scan.

The snow flakes are a Martha Stewart Punch and the half pearls in the center are one of the FREE products you can earn with the Connections Club program from CTMH.

The hand stitching is done with matching embroidery floss with my own design. I thought it sort of resembles snow flakes.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this card was made using this weeks sketch from the Sweet Stop Challenge Blog. There you will find a new sketch every Saturday. Check it out and join in the fun.

Thanks for checking out my artwork.
Now hop on over to our September Guest Designer, Nicole's Blog to see what beautiful surprises she has in store for you.
