SNSS March Release Hop Day 4

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the blog hops showcasing the
March Releases at Sweet n Sassy Stamps
Today we are featuring the darling Pick Me Up Clear Stamp Set
along with the coordinating
Pick Me Up dies.

I have used several of the SNSS stamp and die sets for my first card sample today.  The coffee mug and steam is from our newly released Pick Me Up Clear Stamp and coordinating Dies set, the heart from our Hearts Dies, and the sentiment is from the You Clear Stamp set.  The "you" in the sentiment is from a future release and pairs so nicely.   I have also used three different designer papers: Canvas Home Basics (Coffee Stamps on Kraft), KaiserCraft (Tea Party), and Basic Grey (Mint Julep).  The larger panel is SU (Very Vanilla) embossed with the Cuttlebug EF, Swirls.   Some enamel dots and a brown gingham knotted ribbon finish my card.
My second card was featured on our SNSS blog as a sneak peek and uses both our new March releases, Pick Me Up Clear Stamp set and coordinating dies, and Borders & Background Clear Stamp set and coordinating dies.   The little tiny hearts under the coffee mug are the negatives from our Heart & Stars Scalloped Die set (love these sweet offerings).  I stamped one of the frames from Decorative Frames Clear Stamp set, trimmed it out, and popped up the coffee mug.   Just a few chocolate enamel dots to finish off the card.
Have you had coffee or tea with a friend today?
Conversation and a warm beverage ~ always a great pick-me-up that warms the heart!

  16. Great cards. Love the combination of the embossing plus the cute coffee print paper on the first one. Great idea to use shading on the green panels and I love how you layered the die cuts.

    The second card is very cute with the scalloped border. I love the die cut you have as the base for the coffee cup.

  21. Hmmmm... I thought I commented on this before, but I only remember seeing the second card. Must have been one of those awake dreams. Well, first of all, I love the lime and red combo on your first card, backed up by the coffee paper and the creamy swirls. Looks like love in a cup to me! Very cute! And secondly, your border stamp and die cut with the chocolate and red is pure yumminess. I'm cleaning house today, but your cute and colorful cards make me want to stamp. That's inspiration!
