sweet stamp shop's december release - and some exciting news!

so first of all, some news: i am on the sweet stamp shop winter design team! eek!! how FUN is that?! and i'm so thankful and excited and PUMPED to show off this new realease!! it's AMAZING! first of all, guess who's back with some of the cutest sets ever?! that's right, alyssa from alyssa lea designs has designed more stamp sets and they're AWESOME!
check out the official announcement of everything here!

there are 5 new stamp sets being released and also, some flair! who doesn't love flair?! lol!

i'm showing off 4 of the new sets and here they are:
full disclosure - LOTS of pictures in this post - LOTS of cards, and hopefully - LOTS of inspiration!

first up is cookie sprinkles! LOOOVE this super fun set!!

i have three cards with this set (and 1 is a shaker card!!):

fun fact - if you have 3/4 inch circle punch you can punch out those circle cookies seamlessly!! IT'S AWESOME!
i stamped the happy face from a different new release set onto some acetate for the shaker portion. the rest of the cookies have the 'sprinkles' stamped onto them in glitter! ooooo!  so happy!!

next up is super fun too - a plate full of cookies, and only crumbs left! lol! 

the cookies are all popped up on different layers of dimension and the plate was made with two circle dies! easy peasy!! looove this fun table scene!

lastly is my favorite card from that set:

the heart was watercolored with distress markers. the letters are from my allllllll time favorite sweet stamp set - alpha tabs, which were stiched on! the white panel was then popped up over some washi tape and a strip of the sentiment was added too. 
i added a wink of stella to the wood veneer arrow and some pearls and it's complete! so sweet, don't you think?

the next wonderful stamp set up is elegant sentiments, and it's PERFECT to pair with sweet stamp sets you already have!!

first up, i madea super cheerful distress inked background! 

the sentiment was heat embossed first and it just pops so much against that awesome...i don't know, paradise sunset, perhaps? i also added some pearls to up the pretty factor! :)

then i tried to do something totally out of the box with this set, and i made a masculine card - whaaaaat?? yes i did!

i stamped lots of the little sentiments onto some vellum tags that i die cut and stapled onto the base. then i added some wood veneers and it was done! so easy, and masculine too! elegant can be masculine!! :)

another stamp set in this release that i just LOVE is baking love - it's so CUTE!!!

i paired this set with the cookie from the set above because i couldn't resist!! 

all of the images were colored with copics and the little frosting guy was popped up for dimension. isn't this just the cutest christmas card!! and i WANT that lime green mixer! lol!! 

i had a lot of fun with the 2nd card i made - i splattered a lot of white mr heuy's all over (to look like flour!!) and then added my images to the card, clean and simple, like! the speech bubble is actually chalkboard, and i LOVE how it looks imperfect - it fits with the sentiment and the background of the card! win-win!

are you still with me, because i saved the best for last...the last set i have to share is called press it wash it, and it's SO COOL!!!

i made 3 cards with this one too! i couldn't stop!!

my first card is really fun - it's the washer with the cutest little face on the door, but what's that? it OPENS!! and inside is an extra special message! so cute, right?

my next card is my favorite!! eek!! 

ok, so i copic colored everything, blah ablah. then i sprinkled some white embossing powder randomly onto the card and heat set it. IT LOOKS LIKE DIRT! it was so fun to do! love this card, it's so sweet!!

lastly, is this card i LOOOOOVE!! and it totally makes me giggle!! 

doesn't that dust bunny look so cheeky hiding from the hardworking vacuum?! ha ha!!! random puffs of dust and the vacuum are popped up for dimension, and the flap was my favorite part! lol! :)
