The SN Enchanted Spring release is here!


Hello friends!

Are you ready to be whisked away to magical gardens and meet all sorts of enchanting characters in the Sweet November Stamps Enchanted Spring clear release? We've got 10 new stamp sets for you to enjoy as well as two new SN exclusive sequin mixes. The shopping special for this release is spend $75 or more and you will get both of the 2x3 Flower Fairy of the Month stamps, Daisy and Lily of the Valley, absolutely FREE (while supplies last). And of course there is also FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders over $75 and $15 flat rate shipping for all international orders over $75. We've also brought back the exclusive limited time digital bundle deal so for this weekend only, April 13th thru April 16th, a digital stamp bundle that includes the entire Enchanted Spring release will be available for $70. This is a very limited time offer and once the weekend is over the only time you might see it again is during a black Friday or another special event.

As always, I've been busy creating all sorts of cards using these wonderful new stamps sets, and I've got three of them to share with you today. First up is one of the two new SN Gals that are part of this release... SN Gal Maya. Maya is perfect for cards welcoming the arrival of a new little one or celebrating Mother's Day. I did a bit of masking on this mini slimline card so that I could stamp part of the new Horizon Lines: Wildflower Meadow background so that Maya and her precious baby had a lovely view to enjoy outside the nursery window. The sentiment is a mix of an old Simon Says word die and a sentiment from The Ton. The little heart speech bubble is from My Favorite Things and I think it makes for a cute finishing touch on this precious scene.

Next, we have the 4x8 set of adorable Rainy Day Fairwees and I used nearly all of the stamps on this big 5x7 sized card. I cut out the large A7 Postage Collage die from Waffle Flower then filled each space with one of the characters before proceeding to color them all into rainy day scenes. All except for that upper right panel that I added the sentiment to before coloring in the clear blue sky and rainbow behind it, which coordinates back to all their pretty little raincoats and boots. 

Finally for today, I've got another mini slimline card and this one features the super cute snail from the 3x4 Shello stamp set and I've paired her with the older Autumn Cottages Background Builder set because they work just as great mixed and matched in with these new Spring images. After coloring in the background I added the tall, dark blades of grass behind the snail which helps frame her as well as push the houses even further back in the distance.

Now, if you are on Instagram and would like a chance at winning the entire release, we are hosting a three day Instahop and we are once again being joined by our friends at The Crafty Purple Frog (SN UK stockist). Just search for the #sweetnovemberstamps account to get started. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, the 16th. You can also check out all of the cards over at the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more Spring inspiration from the amazing Sweet November Design Team members. I will also be coloring Live twice each day this weekend, first at 10am then again at 2pm PDT on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page. And don't forget about the Youtube hop for another chance at winning the entire release that starts tomorrow!

These are all A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Amy, by putting the tall reeds of grass behind the snail really pushes the cottage background further back like you say. Your Creative mind is brilliant and that's a big BRILLIANT. You really are so clever. A true artist. X X
