joyous holiday season

Welcome to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps September Release Hop! There’s another great release in the SNSS shop that we’ve been stamping with and we’re excited to share our projects with you! Hop along and leave a comment for the designers linked below and you might just be a lucky winner! One lucky comment from all the comments along the hop will win a $10 gift voucher to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps shop. Winner will be announced on the SNSS blog, Wednesday, September 30.

For today’s hop I made two cards using the Christmas Text background in two different ways. I also used Scene Silhouettes: Jesus Is Born on the first card and Holiday Greetings on the second one. On the first card I simply stamped the background in red. Then I stamped the silhouette scene in black over the bottom and added some gold washi tape and punched holly leaves.

For the second card, I stamped the background in brown and die cut some trees from it. Then I sponged the trees and added them to my card.

Have a great day and thanks for hopping!
