SNSS July Mini Blog Hop Day 3

Hello and welcome to the Day 3 of the mini blog hops celebrating the July releases at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Today we're showcasing two new sets,
Cocoa's Get Well Wishes and Wishing You Well.



I stamped Cocoa twice, cutting out the circular panel with Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles and sponging with Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap.  Using copics, I only coloured Cocoa's tail on this panel, then coloured the whole image on the second stamped image, cutting it out and popping it up on the circle - that way there's a bit of dimension and I don't have to fussy cut Cocoa's cute but complicated and curly little tail! :)  I used Nitwits dp and Lifestyle Crafts Inverted Squares Nestiing dies, adding a button and bow to the fishtail banner sentiment.

Here are the details regarding this sweet set:

Stamp set includes 2 images and 8 sentiments.
Set measures approximately 4" x 4".
The RX Cocoa measures approximately 2" x 2".
Designed by Korin Sutherland.
Priced at $11.







I stitched together strips of dp (Stampin Up, Simple Stories Sn@p Color Vibe) for the background for this get well card.  The sentiment panel was cut using SNSS Decorative Plaque Dies and the flourish accents above and below the sentiment were stamped with the matching Decorative Frame Toppers.
The stars were cut with SNSS's Stars Die Set - these dies barely have time to grow cold, they're in my hands so much, they practically stay warm! :)
Take a look at all the useful and encouraging sentiments in the Wishing You Well set, 
here are the details:

Stamp set includes 7 sentiments.
Set measures approximately 4" x 4".
The "Get Well Soon" sentiment measures approximately 2" x 1/4".
Designed by Diane Zechman.
Priced at $9.
