Packaged Pretty - Sweet Stamp Shop RELEASE WEEK!

It's another fun release week at Sweet Stamp Shop!! I got to make samples with a new set called "Packaged Pretty" and it's so versatile!! I don't know about you, but for me inspiration always begins with the paper I'm using. I've been using a lot of pastels lately and wanted to change it up a bit. Then, a couple of days ago I picked up these papers from My Mind's Eye's new Indie Chic line and I *love* them. I knew I wanted to do a layout and I wanted to make something funky. I cut my pages into strips then used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors then layered them on the page. I stamped and embossed the sentiment, "Just because." in a bright orange. Using silver stickers I wrote my sister's names and then wrote "you are total hams & i love you for it" with rub-ons. Here are the details:
Because I wanted to share how versatile this stamp set is I created a second project; a card. I went in a totally different direction using bright pinks, turquoise, and gold embellishments. This card would be perfect for writing a little note to a friend to send along with a fun gift package. The sentiment says, "WARNING - Content of this package might cause a Happy... dance." How stinkin' cute is that?! I stamped and embossed it in gold and adhered it to the pink glitter paper with foam dots. (You know how I love dimension!) The fringe ribbon, stripe ribbon, and sequins are Dear Lizzy and the gold glitter tape is American Crafts. Details:
What would a stamp release be without a sweet deal?! So, here it goes: Comment along on each designers blog (with original comments) and make sure to 'follow' the designers blogs as well as SSS blog... and you'll be entered to win some of this NEW sweet! 
Today is the full release and so we'll be having a sale on each of the new sets... When you spend $30 you'll get $10 off your order!!! WOW! That's a DEAL! Be sure to check it out on the SSS blog! The next stop on your hop is.... Jamie!! Happy Hopping! ♥
