sweet stamp shop's january release

***this is my second release post of the day!!! for the Newton's Nook Designs release and blog hop - click here or scroll down!***

what an exciting day!! 
today is also release day for the sweet stamp shop!!! and i love this release! it's fun AND conventional!

today, i'm showing off 3 of the new sets and here they are:

first up is the awesomely versatile 'numbers - symbols' stamp set!
i LOVE that the numbers are just big enough to make a statement on a card, but they can also be the background! 

i made a layout featuring the numebrs and i LOVE that they're big enough to color in and cut out! 

you can tell i popped them up on my layout too! so so fun! and what a perfect way to add some dimension and color without overwhelming the page!

the first card i made was channeling my inner diva! does anyone know the musical rent?
how about this song:

again, i colored and popped up the numbers! but to add even more fun, i added glitter with my wink of stella pen and then added glossy accents! hello shine! (the 'minutes' sentiment was created with the sweet stamp shop alpha tabs - LOVE those!)

my next card is a hybrid of the new numbers stamp set and the new 'just the basics' stamp set!!

i really LOVE this card! the colors are so fun!! and the vellum banner is super cool!

so that brings us to the next new stamp set being released!! it's called 'just the basics' and it's just that!! it has super tradtional sentiments and the quirky, sassy sentiments we all know sweet stamp loves!

my first card with this set is a slider card!
i paired lots of the sentiments up with some sweet flair that said 'hashtag this'! ha!

so fun, right?!

ps - sorry about the obscenely messy white little mann decided it would be fun to play with the card before it was dry! eek! that will teach me to leave it on my desk! :)

the last card i made with this set is simple, and fun! i paired the sentiment sup with some images from the chalkboard sign stamp set and let the die cuts speak for the card! :)

the little hearts were popped up for dimension and these sentiments fit PERFECTLY in the banner!

the last stamp set i am priveldged enough to share is the foxy stamp set!! and i LOVE it!! :)

you love it already, don't you!!! well i HAD to make a cheeky card in honor of the song!! (listen to it here if you are curious...or if you want it stuck in your head all day!! ha ha!)

so i stamped the random fox 'sayings' on as the background of the card in a light gray and paper pieced that little fox and grass together! the speech bubble was stamped onto vellum and i LOVE that!! :)

what's not to love right!! SUPER adorable fox image! and i love the pops of color! :)

my last card of the release (sniff sniff) is next! this time i colored the fox in with copics and added some vellum and a more 'traditional' sentiment in the speech bubble! there really is SO much you can do with this set! :)

some of the mushrooms were popped up for dimension and i love the look of vellum and stitching! swoon! :)

wow - another record post full of pictures!!! sorry guys! 

so shop away! and check out the sweet stamp blog to see the rest of the design team's cards and the additional set that was released! :)
