Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years! I first "discovered" Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps several years ago when I was looking for KJV Scripture stamps. They were, and still are, hard to find and I was thrilled to find such a great selection at SNSS. After the The Sweet Stop Sketch blog started, I enjoyed playing along as often as possible. I was very excited when Korin gave me an opportunity to be on the Digi Challenge Blog DT and to hostess the Say it With Scripture Challenge over at The Sweet 'n Sassy Connection.
A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 37 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog! You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!
If you have been following along already you should have come from Chris Dickinson. If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way! Don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :) Also, I'll be picking a winner from all the comments left on my blog to receive a little gift from me.
I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS133) for my card design today. I also used one of the new digi stamp releases, Rhubarb's Stocking. Isn't he adorable?! I love teddy bears and Rhubarb just looks so huggable. :)
I colored Rhubarb and his stocking with copics. I went with a non-traditional pink and green color scheme this time. A snowflake embossing folder added texture and a clear star pen on the stocking and some red stickles on the holly added some sparkle.
Cardstock: Recollections (green), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned paper: Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses)
Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy (Rhubarb's Stocking, Bear Christmas Digital Sentiments)
Embellishments/Tools: Ribbon (Hobby Lobby), Stickles (Christmas Red), Sakura Gelly Roll pen (clear star), Fiskars Border Punch (Threading Water), Spellbinders Nestabilities (Petite Oval large & small), copic markers
I'm entering this card in the Jellypark Challenge for a card with non-traditional Christmas colors.
