HAPPY BIRTHDAY and A LITTLE CANDY!

Hello and Welcome! Thank you for hopping along with the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop today! 
If you didn't start at the beginning, you'll want to hop back to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog and pick up from there where you left off.  We have over 30 amazingly talented ladies participating in today's hop plus a prize at every stop so you really don't want to miss a single blog!" If you have been hopping through, wasn't Micki's project fantastic?

It's hard to believe that 3 years ago today Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "opened for business" with just 4 clear stamp sets being sold on a simple blog.  Since then SNSS has grown to over 100 clear stamp sets and hundreds of digital stamps!  God has been so good to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
Our images, sentiments and scripture stamps are sweet 'n sassy and everything in between.  We're sure you'll find something you love.  We hope you enjoy hopping along to see all the fun things we've created for your viewing pleasure.  May you be inspired to create something truly amazing......something from your heart!

Today I have a bit of "CANDY" to give out! All you have to do is hop through the blog and then come back here to leave a comment and I will hold a drawing and announce the winner on Friday, November 12th! The Digi Candy I will be giving out is called the Birth of Jesus and is also available in stamp form.


For the Birthday Celebration I have two projects to share with you! Both projects are using the NEW Fancy Fold and Motion Cd from Technique Junkies! This CD contains 60 tutorials in step-by-step pictorial format -- all printable to 8-1/2" x 11" paper. Perfect dimensions, great examples -- it is a must have! You can order directly from Technique Junkies by clicking on the icon on my side bar!

Cardstock: Saffron, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Ribbon, 1 3/4" circle punch, Scallop Nestibilities

Kelly Schelske said...

Beautiful creations Chris!

Traci S. said...

STUNNING! I had no idea by looking at what shows of the second card that there was so much behind it! Chris, this is so beautiful!

I am curious what you use, and how you use it...to have the simple outline forms appear so lightly on a page...is it a matter of stamping off a bunch of times?

This is AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
