August 2020 Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Welcome to our August Release Blog Hop!

Wow! So hard to believe that we're already near the middle of August!  We've got a beautiful release to share with you this month, so let's get to it! Read on for a bit of inspiration and a little walk through of this month's new goodies, then hop along to the blogs linked below for all sorts of papercrafting inspiration.

Plus, there's a GIVEAWAY! Leave a little shout out in the comment section on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced here on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, August 19.



Here's the official hop list. If a link misbehaves along the way,
hop on back here to pick  up where you left off.


For my card today, I chose the Bushel of Blessings set. I love these delightful fall images and had fun coloring up this basket of flowers with Copic markers. I cut the layer with a slimline die, then inked with wheat ink.


The sentiment is from the previously released Friendship is a Blessing set.  I embossed it onto a doily die cut and inked the edges to match my main panel. The banner strip is cut from peacock cardstock and then embossed with a striped embossing folder. I matted with the same color and added a grosgrain knotted bow before adhering to the 3.5" x 8.5" card base.  I finished with some stickles on the flowers, and added a bit of dimension with the sentiment panel up on foam tape.

Okay, the next stop on the hop is my blog, Poetic Artistry, with another creation from me! 

Here's a little look-see at the sets included in the August release...

First up is the August stamp of the month, Coffee Talk. This set is available for purchase for $15.95, OR you can get it as a FREE gift with a $75 purchase (after any discounts and before shipping and tax) during the month of July!

Autumn Blessings


Hello friends, Esther here with a fall card in non-traditional colors! I created a subtle background by stamping a sunflower in versamark watermark ink on my dark blue paper, and added interest to my label with some faux stitching done with a white gel pen. The main image was colored with Arteza Watercolor Pencils -- I'm still trying to get the hang of them!

Thoughts and Prayers

Hello everyone, today I want to show you a card I made with the encouraging thoughts stamp set and the scribble flowers set. This card is pretty easy to make and a great way to let someone know you're thinking about them.

I made a background with soft hearts on white paper with a stencil and some green ink. After that I stamped the sentence and image on it. I colored the image with watercolor markers and blended the green color to a lighter shade in the top of the leaves. 

I added a bit of Wink of Stella on top of the leaves to give them a bit more sparkles. To finish the card I added a couple of sequins and adhered everything on a blue-green background.

I hope you're inspired to create!

Coffee Thoughts

Hi all! It's Julee here popping in with a little inspiration using this month's Stamp of the Month, Coffee Talk.

It's no secret that I love coffee... and coffee stamps. So I was more than a little bit giddy when I saw the previews for this month's set. Love these cute cups, and Korin did a fabulous job hand-lettering these fun sentiments!

 

This was a super fun and simple card.  I stamped out the coffee images, then colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. I used a quote border die from my stash to cut the designer paper and a coordinating cardstock mat, then stamped the sentiment onto my card base.  Easy peasy and such a fun card to send to a friend! Personalize with their favorite colors and you've got a winner!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! The Stamp of the Month is available to purchase in the shop for $15.95 OR you can receive it as a free gift with a $75 order in the month of August. Please note, you have to add the Coffee Talk set to your order to receive the discount. Discount of $15.95 will apply to your cart when your order has qualified.
