November Digi Release & a Sale!!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating their 5th Birthday.  Part of the celebration is a 25% off sale on all their digi stamps November 15th-21st.  This sale includes the 3 new digis that were just released yesterday. All 3 are so cute you'll want all 3 and at 25% off, now is the perfect time to pick them up.

This week's challenge is to make a shaped card -- no squares or rectangles.  I got to play with two of the new stamps:  Eskimo Kisses Colored Digital Stamp and Eskimo Kisses Sentiments Digital Stamp Set.  These pre-colored stamps help your card come together soooo quickly!  This week, if you enter a card in the challenge you will have a chance to win a $20 digi stamp shopping spree at the SNS store.  If you use a SNS digi on your card, your entry will count twice.

I chose to make a circle card.  Since I was working with a pair of Eskimos, I knew I wanted snow and lots of white. This card has LOTS of shimmer but was very easy to put together. I embossed the white panel with a snowflake embossing folder and then accented all the snowflakes with stickles.  The fur on the girl's coat is accented with star dust stickles and the fur on the boy's coat is accented with frosted lace stickles.  The image panel is backed with a shimmery blue cardstock.

I used the sentiment set on the inside of the card.  I accented the words with more stickles and lined the interior with more of the shimmery blue cardstock. {sorry for the shadow on the lower right side -- low light this morning & I had a feline helper}

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (blue)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Eskimo Kisses Colored Digital Stamp, Eskimo Kisses Sentiments Digital Stamp Set)
Embellishments/Tools:  Cuttlebug embossing folder (Snowflakes), Stickles (Star Dust, Frosted Lace), Sakura Clear Star Pen, Spellbinders (Classic Circles large & small, Lacey Circles)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

VERY sweet, Stephanie. I just love the way you design for your DT positions. You can see your love for the images in your work, and that's another reason I feel like you will be SUCH a tremendous blessing to Diane. I just want to encourage you to use your gifts where they shine the most, and I know Diane will keep the focus (the glory) all on Jesus. Thanks for sharing your talents to bless the companies to whom you commit. They are blessed to have you, and thanks SO MUCH for sharing your beautiful work in 0ur challenges at Word Art Wednesday. You continually bless and inspire me!
