Happy Sunday!
I am sharing this one on the Bling Girl blog today.
 I used all new supplies from A Scrap N Place. 
Instead of just die cutting the birdhouse of of card stock, I decided to cut it out using watercolor paper and then used my watercolor paints to color it, I love the weathered affect it has by doing the watercolors.  

Supply List
Design paper: Harmony Collection (Authentique)
Cloud die: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Cloud and raindrop die set)
Stitched Die: Lil Inker ( Stitched Mats- Rectangles)
Birdhouse Die : Cheery Lynn

SNSS Christmas In July New Release & Bllog Hop

 Hello and welcome to our July 2014 Release!  Are you ready for a little Christmas in July?  I love the opportunity to get a jump start on making my Christmas cards for the year, and with this release you'll have the chance to do just that!  Today we're releasing one wonderful image set and two fabulous sentiment sets that not only look great on the outside of the card, but are perfect for finishing up the inside of the card as well!

Here are my samples

Christmas Morn 
To make this one started with a white card base A2 size and then stamped the tree image versamark ink and embossed them with clear ink. Next I sponged the entire front with Tim Holtz Evergreen Bough Distress ink. I added some sequins from Pretty, Pink, Posh  to finish it off

Christmas Innies 
Even though this is a Innies set I used one of the sentiments as a focus for my card. They make a beautiful focal point for a  quick and easy card 

Jesus Is Born
For this card I used the set Born This Day to compliment the sentiment.

As always Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some wonderful prizes and another  Release Day Challenge for you!
