Sweet News!

I finally get to announce some exciting news that I’ve kept to myself for a few weeks!  Not only is today Sweet Stamp Shop’s December Release Day, but I am now an official member of their design team!  Remember I mentioned earlier this week that I am starting a photography series over on the Sweet Blog?  That’s part of this exciting new opportunity!  I couldn’t be more stoked!  There are lots of new, exciting things in store and I encourage you to keep an eye on this company!

Let’s take a look at some of the new release goodness that’s happening today!  On top of new stamp sets, there is a discount on all the newness today!  You can take 20% off any of the new stamp sets by using the code DNR20!  Here are some cards I created with a few of them:

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Baking Love)

I fussy cut the mixer and then paper pieced with some My Mind’s Eye decorative paper (another favorite of mine).  It is popped up with foam dots and embellished with a red pearl heart.

While we’re on the subject of baking…

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Cookie Sprinkles)

Isn’t this just the cutest?!  I’m a huge fan of sprinkles on baked goods so this sentiment is just perfect in our house!  I stamped the heart cookies, the icing and the sprinkles and then added pink Stickles to the icing.  The sentiment was stamped and then sequins were added to complete the sprinkled look of the card.  I rounded the corner for a little interest.

Next up?  How about some pretty blooms!  I love color, so this set is going to find itself inked in a rainbow of colors in the weeks ahead!  For this card, I used purple, blue and yellow.

Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop: Elegant Flowers, Elegant Sentiments

This is a simple one layer card that I see myself making over and over again!  There are more pretty flower images in the set, so I can vary the main image a bit!

See that dreamy sentiment in the card above?  It’s from a new sentiment set!  Here’s another sample using one of the words included in it…
Stamps:  Sweet Stamp Shop (Elegant Sentiments)
The main panel is mounted on silver glitter paper and the “Cheers” has glitter adhered to it!  Silver sequins and gemstone stars add the finishing touch to this festive card!  Even the card base is silver!  Happy New Year, anyone?!
Enough from me!  Go ahead and sneak a peek at the Sweet Blog for even more inspiration from the Sweet Team!  Then, don’t be afraid to do a little shopping!  After all, these sweets are calorie free and, this time of year, that’s a very good thing!
Have a fantastic Thursday!
