Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Blog Hop


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 am so happy to be apart of this celebration. I have been a Sweet Stop Sugar Baby for 11months now and also had the privilege of being a member of The Sweet 'n Sassy DT.  Korin is a wonderful, sweet and talented lady and I want to wish her many more years of success.

  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 Margo's Blog.  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!  Also, 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! :)
Cardinal Blessings

 I decided to make something a little different to show you how versatile Sweet 'n Sassy stamps can be.  I used the Cardinal Digi so that I could size him to fit my wreath but it is also available in a great clear set. I colored the image with Copics and did a second set of wings so that I could pop it up to give dimension.  The Flowers are from the Your Friendship Set and I just stamped, layered and added some silver Stickles to edges.  The Swirls are all from Sizzix and the Pine Branch Punch from Martha Stewart is my favorite tool this time of year.  The sentiment is from the new Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Tags (love this set).
Here is a close up of the way I colored the feathers and added Polar White Flower Soft to create a snowy look on the branches.
 Copics
P89, R29, R27, R24/YR15, YR18/E59, E57,E44, E43, E42/G99, G94
Your next stop on the hop is Tami Mayberry, but just in case here is the list.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will come back and visit again soon.
