Sweet Stamps New Release Blog Hop

 Sweet Stamps is excited to present new Wildlife rubber stamps by designer Jacqueline Hill. Not only is Jackie joining us today but she will be a new member of our design team.

We are having a blog hop to showcase these wonderful new stamps. Visit each team member's blog and collect a letter. Once you get all the letters, unscramble them to reveal the 2 word phrase. Then return to the Challenge blog and leave a comment with the answer. We will be chosing one winner to receive all of the new stamps. We will also be awarding random prizes of rubber stamps chosen from the readers who comment on each member's blog so be sure to leave some love. Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, February 21st before our next challenge.

If you get lost along the way, you can always return to the Challenge blog for a list of the DT members in hop order.  You should have arrived here from Bonnie's blog, if not return to the Challenge blog and start at the beginning.


Here are the new stamps!!

I just love them!!

------------------------------------------------------

Here are two cards that I made with some of the new stamps:

I used "Horse Portrait Oval" (3003-i), "Howdy" (3013-b, which is part of a set of 3 sentiments) and "Two Horse Silhouette" (3002-b) stamps to create this card:
 I'm really happy with how this card turned out! For the border using "Two Horse Silhouette" I used Shades Dye Ink "Brownie" from Sweet Stamps.

I also created a card with the new "Butterfly Bookmark" (#3008g) stamp!
I stamped the image twice and cut the butterflies out and made them 3D on the original image.  I love doing this technique!

 Here's a close-up of two of the butterflies, with some added shimmer!!
