Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps March Release!

Hello, Sweet Friends!

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March 2015 Release Day Blog Hop & Challenge!  It seems like a long time in coming, but spring may just be around the corner!  Our temperatures have warmed and the majority of snow has left my planet!  If you aren't already in the mood, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will help set the stage for Spring with three new Mini Flower Block stamp sets ...AND for you animal lovers out there…two new stamp sets featuring our favorite canines and felines! (You won't see puppies and kitties here, but they are out there!)  So, get prepared to be inspired by the projects created for you!  Just follow the projects below in the linky to hop through all of the designer's projects!

My first two cards feature the Mini Flower Blocks #3!  I added a few more goodies to the project seen above--a sentiment from New Creature and the happy birthday wish from Keep In Touch, Too.  Those cone flowers are beautiful!  I splurged recently on some fancy water color paper and was desperate to try it out!  This project gave me the perfect reason.  After it was colored and dried, I couldn't resist some sparkly bling to make each flower POP!

My second card, featuring Mini Flower Block #3, was a bit difficult to photograph due my use of vellum.  Each rose is colored with Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment on a portion of vellum and adhered it to the card front.  The real life effect is a portion of vibrant roses and then others muted and bearing the wonderful words of 2 Corinthians 5:17.  You will find this scripture stamp in the New Creature stamp set.
It's also available as a digital stamp set!

My final two cards feature images and sentiments found in the Windy Winnie set.  I just adore this character and hope she is with us for a long time!

 My rainbow rickrack was made with a die from the Bookmarks & More Dies.  That is just the handiest die set!  I've been using it for a number of projects and haven't even gotten around to make a single bookmark, yet!!  But, I will before the school year is out--my little guy has commissioned bookmarks for his whole class!

And now, who doesn't like a chance to win???
