June Release at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

It's finally time for the June clear stamp release over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  This month the release is amazing - there is no way I could pick my favorite set.  The Design Divas are kicking off Release Day with a blog hop, and I have three cards to share today!  


My first card features the new set Make a Wish.  I embossed the dandelion using Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel, and kept the rest of the card very simple!  I really love the way it turned out, especially that striped paper tape under the ribbon. 


My next card may look familiar to you - I shared it on Tuesday as part of a gift set I made my daughter.  I created the background using an airbrush tool (more details in Tuesday's post, so please go back and read it!) and colored the flowers in the Happy Place set using my Spectrum Noir markers.   Here's a breakdown of the markers I used:

Pinks: BP6, PP6, BP1
Greens: CG4, LG4, LG3 
Blue (Spatter Only): TB4, TB2


The last card I'm sharing today was made for a very special little one....my newest (and only) nephew!  He was born a couple weeks ago, and we'll get to meet him in July when they travel up here from Florida.  This Vintage Baby set, designed by Dina Kowal, is perfect for elegant baby cards!  I once again colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. 

Here's a breakdown of the markers I used: 

Yellows: GB5, GB3
Blues: TB4, TB2, TB1
Hair: EB2
Skin Tones: FS9, FS4, FS3, TN1

Now it's time to cruise through the rest of this amazing hop!  Get a snack and cozy up to your computer....you won't want to miss any of this fabulousness:

I love your Make a Wish Card. I was thinking embossing would be the way to go when I fist say the stamp. Your second card is delightful. It just makes you smile when you look at it :)
