Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Release Day Blog Hop! This month we  are doing something really fun - the Design Divas and the Digi Team are hopping together, to celebrate the fabulous clear stamps, digis, and dies being released tonight!!


Grab your favorite cuppa (and maybe some of that yummy chocolate the kids collected this week !) and get ready for some amazing eye candy! 


Don't forget to join us tonight at 8:00PM EST in our member company forums over on Splitcoaststampers - we have a great release party planned!
There will be full reveals of all of the stamp sets, digis and dies,
plus challenges AND prizes!!!

If you have been following along already you should have come from Cathy McCauley'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! 

I created a fun Christmas card with one of our adorable new snowmen digi stamps ! 

Image was coloured with Copics, accented with Stardust Stickles on the body, black glaze pen on the skates, Prima pearls for eyes and buttons, Flower soft on the pompom, and a paper pieced scarf and hat.
I then hand cut the image out, and popped it up onto the blue mat.

Papers used are a mix of Echo Park (red and white dots) and My Mind's Eye (plaid and light blue).
Blue mat was cut with Nestabilities and black border around it was hand trimmed.
Sentiment was also cut from MME paper, Border punch is Stampin' Up, and snowflakes are from my stash.

What a fun die cut shape to place that cute snowman on! I like how he has dimension by extending beyond the edges and the cute tuft of fluff you added to the pom pom of his hat.
