Simply Sassy Release Blog hop

We are so exited to be having our first bloghop :)
We have been waiting for ages for all to get their stamps and now we are finally good to go!

We have 6 new Simply Sassy stamps to show (some you have seen sneaks of already)
And to see all the sweet new stamps you need to hop around to each of the dt members.
And we have blog hop prizes too!!
Karen has been so generous and given each of the dt members two Sugar Nellie-Simply Sassy surprise stamps to give away. So be sure to leave comments on the hop so you won't miss out on the sweets-draw..
And then come back here to tell us what's your favourite stamp :) 
You have until midnight GMT (CET -1) thursday Jan 27th to leave the comment to enter the draw.

Before I send you on your hop over to the design team blogs I have a tag to show you, since a blog post without picture is a boring blogpost (my opinion) and we have 5 dt members and 6 stamps
 I made a tag with my favourite Witch.. 
The stamp is called Best Witches.I stamped and colored her on Craft card stock and used prisma color pencils as markers would blend so well with the card stock. When coloring with color pencils it's always a  good idea to go over the lines at the end with a sharpened black color pencil as the lines will often be covered up behind the pencils.

Since it's months until Halloween and living in Norway I don't celebrate Halloween I wanted to show different ways to use the witch, this is a birthday tag and at the sneak peek card of this witch I used her for a Valentine card.. So let me know, isn't she a sweet witch?? Would you love more Simply Sassy witches??

Now I want to send you on your hopping way to the design team blogs..

First stop is at Tracey's blog 

And if you get lost here is the blog hop list
Tracey 
Erica
Autumn
Kahrin
Maria
And I believe when you have taken your round  the sweet stamps shall be out for sale at 
 (just click on the picture and you will hop on over to Funky Kits)

  1. She is fantastic and it's a great tip about using the black pencil to revive the black lines.

  21. Awww isn't this little witch just the sweetest and as always you've done a brilliant job with her Maria. Thanks for the hop, it was great! So difficult to choose a favourite as I luv them all but I think possibly Bad Hare day? Your girls have all done such a fab job of displaying the new images. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  22. fantastic tag and another stunning new sassy.you talented ladies have made it really hard to choose a favourite.
    i am torn between windswept and spread your wings.both fantastic.

  25. She is a cutie, I have a set of 4 of Krista witches on my wall and she is one of them and along with the other 3 which are also so cute, so yes I'd like more Sassy witches definitely please, you tag is fab.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love these new sassies and your witchy wishes tag is super. hugs heidi x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow what another fab set, cruel to ask for a favourite as I want them all to come live with me and I could think of a different reason for each to be a favourite, spread your wings is just so gorjgeous and obviously kind and caring, the best witch is just so cute definitely a good witch, windswept too glamerous for words makes me think of romantic wuthering heights, skating girl just how every teenager would want to be ,so cool, Phone me is dreamy and I bet alot of us can relate to her especially as it is a phone with a wire, all you need is a parent in the background shouting to tell her to get off the phone she's been on it too long, and bade hare day ah she is scrumptious cuddling the wee hare what more can you say. Fab and can't wait to ask them come live and play at my house, thanks for sharing with us all and thanks to Karen and Krista too.

  53. What a great blog hop all the DT have excelled themselves, you have not made it easy to make a choice have you, all the new images are stunning and as I have 6 young nieces and grand daughters between 8 and 18 I think most of the stamps will find themselves a new home with me.
    I think I will start with "Windswept"
    Thanks for a great hop :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks for the outlining tip with pencils. I'm intrigued by your use of the witch in such different ways - not sure about more though, or how versatile people would view the images & some children can be a bit funny with a witch image. As to my favourite - hard one, Bad hare Day is ideal for Easter, Windswept has umpteen uses, Call Me for Frienddship or Miss You, & Spread Your Wings is lovely & 1920s - love the dress, Skater Girl is brilliant for teenagers......... OK - if I had to select ONE & could only ever have ONE from this set, it has to be Windswept - it's those shoes that finally swung it! Thanks to everyone involved in this.
