Hey Sassy fans!! Thank you for stopping by today!! How has your weekend been so far? This is my VERY FIRST post EVER as a GDT member for Simply Sassy!! I’m SUPER excited.. so let’s get started – but please.. go easy on me, heehee. I am literally in LOVE with the Sassy images, and there are only a select few which I don’t own. I knew as soon as I seen set #6 demonstrated in the blog hop I had to have them all..
The Sassy girl I have used today is ‘Carnival Balloon’ and she is a newbie (like me!) from set #6 available HERE at Funky Kits. I LOVE her dress and the flowers in her hair; she is so versatile and could be used for a number of occasions. She is perfect for summer, with a ‘Carnival’ scene behind her; she’s a gorgeous image for girly birthdays as well as inspiring cards – which is the theme I have gone with today.
I have used Basic Grey Max and Whiskers collection to add bright colours to the card. My flower embellishments are a mixture of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used a few rub ons from the Max and Whiskers collection along with some brown waxed twine and lemon organza ribbon. I have stamped ‘DREAM’ using a Studio G alpha stamp set and the ‘IMAGINE’ tag is from a Tim Holtz Philosophy Tag pack. I’ve used an orange grommet along with a brad from the Max and Whiskers collection and a spacer from The Ribbon Girl.
Here is a close up of the Sassy girl, I have coloured her using ProMarkers and paper pieced part of her dress and balloon. Such a neat technique – I should do it more.
