SNSS Sunbeams Release

Good morning, and welcome to the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps November Release Blog Hop. If you came here from Lisa's fabulous blog, then you are on the right track, but if not, then you'll want to go back to the beginning and start with Ceal's blog, and hop along from there for some amazing inspiration from the Sweet -n Sassy gals. I would like to introduce Miss Caitlyn to you. Caitlyn is one of the little Sunbeams Set that can be preordered beginning today. Joining Caitlyn are Luke, Owen and Emma. This set of 4 birthday cuties were created in celebration of the second anniversary of Sweet -n Sassy Stamps, and they will only be available for a limited time, so follow the links and get your order in today!
My Caitlyn card was made using pink card stock to compliment this wonderful Basic Grey Cupcake DP. As always, I colored the image with my SU inks and an aquapainter. I added highlights and polka dots with a white gel pen, and handstitched a zig-zag around the edge of the image. I finished this cute card off by threading taffeta ribbon around the tablecloth and along the side of the eyelet border. I chose pearls for bling on this card, because as you all know, ya gotta have some bling! This one took me some time with the handstitching, but I sure enjoyed every minute of the creation process. Fun, fun, fun!!!




Now be sure to hop along to Nancy's blog for your next stop, but should you get lost along the way, you can follow the links in order below.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed your time at The ThINKin' Spot, and found some inspiration while you were here. Please come back soon! May our wonderful and gracious Lord bless and keep you today and always! Happy stamping!




Love Ya!

Lorie! Hand stitched!!!! You amaze me girl. I HATE 'cloth piercing' as I call it, (by hand that is) and to see it done so neatly is stunning!
The whole card is a triumph!
