Sweet N Sassy Stamps Release Day!!!

Hello, sweet friends!   Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February 2015 Release Day Blog Hop! Baby…it's cold out there, but our February release is sure to warm your heart so grab your favorite hot beverage and get ready to be inspired by the projects created for you by the Sweet N Sassy Design Divas!

I have two cards featuring our newest stamp designer and her endearing character, Winnie!

I feel like this EVERY. DAY.  It's so cold here in Wisconsin, my cold is cold!  LOL!  My first card features the Winter With Winnie set.  In addition to using some fun papers, I also had a therapeutic cutting session while I pieced together Winnie's clothing.  I love to paper piece or fussy cut, as some say.  It is extremely relaxing!

I cut my snow drifts using the Hillside Edges Die set.  To make them even more authentic, I added some sparkle and white flocking.  This is really the ONLY way I like my snow lately!

After a time outside....

 It's always nice to warm up with a yummy hot beverage!  Winnie's Warm Wishes is also an adorable set.  I was anxious to stamp with it wanting to fit that fun hat right on her head!  I finished off the hat with some glitter glue and popped in up on some dimensional tape--it's a nice dimensional accent for sweet Winnie!
