sweet stamp shop's february release!

hey there!
it's another 'snow' day here in south carolina! kind of crazy - especially since there's no actual snow! oh well! it's another day i get to be home with my little menn! :)

another reason to celebrate and snuggle down with a hot cup of hot chocolate (or coffee? or tea?)? it's the sweet stamp shop's february release today!! 4 brand new sets are available for purchase RIGHT NOW! but you better snatch them up fast! a little birdie told me they're already close to selling out!! what?! and here's why: THEY'RE ADORABLE!

i was able to work with 2 sets and here is the first one, along with my cards. hold on to your cuteness's stuck on you!

eek! i know! too cute to stand! ha ha! and the sentiment gets me - go hammer go hammer go! lol! and the cactus - i die! LOVE this set!

here' are a few cards i made with this set:

first i had to make a cute little couple and 'stick' them in a polaroid frame! lol! the are paper pieced and embellished with some of the accessories from another set being released today! 

i love the fun colors against the grey! pinks and yellows and greens, oh my!

but the cactus doesn't have to be green right? i decided to make a valentine's card and to make the cute as can be cactus pink! aww!!

ha ha! the sentiment was heat embossed (the word 'valentine' is from the previously released just the basics stamp set!) i LOVE how well these sets all work together!

then i stamped the heart image with my glue pad and added lots of glitter and glossy accents! :)

my last card for this set is super fun and easy! but i love the bright, bold colors! 

i just love the white sequins to finish it off! for this one i didn't use the top bump of the cactus - and i just love it! it reminds me of a kid rocking out to a song! lol! 

i colored the image with my copics then popped it up for dimension! the sentiment was  stamped onto a vellum banner and that i inked up with some distress inks! 

the next stamp set being released is called too hip...and people - this set is INCREDIBLE! ha ha! so cute! check it out:

i could have made 1000 cards with this set! but to start, (and for the release) i only made 3! lol! 
for my first card, i just wanted to show how well the accessories in this set work with the rest of the newly released sets from the past few months! 

i used the strawberries from the yummy love set and dapper-ed them up for a super hip party! love thise bowties! and it's hard to tell, but they're actually glittered (along with the wood veneer stars) with my wink of stella pen! 

i just love the little converstaion they're having (the speech bubble is from the foxy stamp set)!

next up is a pretty straight forward representation of this set - i HAD to use the hippo!! he's just too cute!! he's totally hip! i used some embosing paste (tinted grey per my mini-tutorial here) for the background.

i totally tried to make that hippo as cool as can be!! he's totally hip!! LOVE it!!

there's lots of dimension and texture happening on that simple card! 

my last card is probably my favorite - i's the CUTEST washing machine ever!! ha ha! and he's all ready for work!

i used the accessories (hello toupee!!!!!) and spiffied him up! i imagine with that red/black tie that he's an engineer, so i added some math-y washi tape and silver mist splatters on the card!

seriously - i LOVE this card! 

so that's the release people! and there's a new release sale going on - be sure to check it out on the sweet stamp shop blog!

and while you're there - you may notice it's a brand new blog!!! new look! new location! new style! i LOVE it!
