Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps & the Twinery.... blog hop!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and The Twinery are teaming up today for a fun blog hop - 24 designers are showcasing product from both companies! If you just happened on the blog hop because you're a regular reader of my blog and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at The Twinery Blog - you'll find a full list of participants there, and all the details you need. If you're already hopping and you arrived here from Katrina's blog, you're doing just fine.

If you'd like a chance to win one of 2 prize packages, be sure to leave a comment at every blog along the hop! These are the prizes up for grabs! Comments must be entered by 11:59 PM EST, Saturday, Oct. 22nd.

I wanted to combine this hop post with a challenge card for Hope You Can Cling To, so I pulled out So Sweet Cocoa... he is colored with Touch Twin Markers (the colors are listed below), and layered for dimension. I always keep the packaging insert from my SNSS stamps for layering on cards - I love those polka dots!!Here's also a peek at some dies releasing soon from SNSS - the one shown below has spaces in it for lacing a strip of paper, ribbon... or twine! I like this look with the Pink Sorbet twine laced and tied through the openings. Fun, huh? The actual die is 6" long, but I cut it to 4" for my card. The bottom edge of the polka dot layer is cut by the outside edge of a second die in that border set.Here's a close-up on Cocoa and the layering there, and also the markers I used to color him in:After you leave a comment here, you'll be hopping on to Jen's blog! Thanks so much for joining us!

(***I do have my comment moderation turned on because I'm over here on the other side of the world, and I'll be sleeping while you hop... don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away!!)
Thanks for stopping by!
