Today's the Day!

Today's the day that Cocoa comes to Clear Stamps!!! SWEET!! That's right! Due to popular demand, it's the clear stamp comeback at Sweet 'n Sassy!! Now don't get me wrong. I love digis, but there is just *something* about stamping "for real". :-) So today, we gals on the Sweet 'n Sassy design team have all sorts of inspiration for you using our new clear stamps.

For today's card, I stamped Cocoa on white cardstock and colored him with Copics. And, no, the frosting isn't designer paper! :-) I just drew a grid with a pencil and used 2 different pinks to color it in. Isn't it a fun look! I had stamped and colored Cocoa twice, so I cut out just his head and paws and popped him up so he looks like he's popping out of the donut. My sketch is this week's Sweet Stop Sketch turned sideways. :-)

Of course, what would a blog hop be without candy??? Be sure to leave a comment and then keep hopping. I'm sure you'll find some!!!

Oh my goodness! Look how super cute this card is!!! It makes me smile and want to eat the donut!!! I do love how you paper pieced the frosting and how Cocoa's head is popped! So many beautiful layers, the pretty punched flowers and twigs and one of my favorite color combos of browns and pink....all make your card so SWEET & adorable. I love it!

Super cute card! I totally agree with you about the whole actual stamp thing. I like digis for the resizing, and the other benifits about that, but I do like the whole act of stamping!
