What A Friend



Helloooooo stampers! Today is day TWO of our two day new release blog hop for Sweet n' Sassy Stamps, and I'm thrilled to be showcasing this new set called Floral Flourishes! For this card, I used a Basic Gray (SU) base, with Pretty in Pink layered on top of it. The "stems" were stamped in black and then stamped off to mute the color a bit. The other inks are real red and pretty in pink. I wrapped a band of vellum around the main image, then tied it with narrow pink organdy ribbon over the top of grey taffeta.

And the best part of all? You can win this stamp set! (a winner has been chosen! Thanks for entering!) Woot! Here is the whole set:


All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post (a winner has been chosen! Thanks for entering!) .... but don't hesitate! The drawing is tonight at the SNSS release party over on our forum. Stop by the party to see if you've won, and participate in some fun challenges while you're there. It all starts at 8pm CDT this evening.
Be sure to check all of the other blogs in the hop today as well. ALL of us are giving away candy! How cool is that?!

Here are the links for today:
So if you missed Chris, start there. Otherwise, continue on to Jeanette!

debinicol said...

Sarah,,,once I looked at this set, I would have never bought it...that is without seeing it as a flower with vines. I thought it was more flourishes...great idea to show what it should really be...maybe it is just me being dense.
